Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Do you have any more periods or are they become less regular?
Are you there
I have the Merina IUD. I have periods that are unpredicted - GYN ultrasound and IUD is in the right place as of December 2011. Not suppose to have periods at all with Merina. This is year five with it and mine have always been hit and miss. I asked her to take it out, and because she would have to
dialate me - she suggested day surgery which will cost be out of pocket about 800
I was not prepared to pay to have it removed - insurance covered it being inserted
Surgery for what - to take the IUD out?
that makes absolutely NO sense
Can you feel the string
She said I need to be dilated to have it removed
I have not looked for the string
she said she might be able to do in office when my cervice is closer
Okay - well if the IUD is in the right and correct place it should cause you a simple $25 office visit to get this taken out
It does not matter if your cervix is closed.
and I thought "can I come back when I feel it?:
But, it is a 'Trick'
My husband wants me to go to another gyn for second opinion
Have her write a prescription to Cytotec 200mcg
YES GO TO ANOTHER OB/gyn
I would not trust that ob/gyn -
But, get the cytotec
This will open and dilate your cervix
she is more into babies and not gyn
great - let me right this down
then there is an instrument that if the string can not be exposed called a NOVAK currette
the Currette can grab the IUD quite easily
and, then removed
So, very simple
are you a doctor in my area?
So going back to your hair
do not be too concerned about the hair problem
This is common as women get a bit older and into menopause
I thought it was kind of nice until the groin sweating took the place of underarm sweating
Well I am in the US, but we are not allowed per the rules on this website to divulge where we are
But, the sweats also can be controlled with a medication called Clonidine
Also known as Catapress.
You can print this all out afterwards - so you do not necessarily need to write it down.
will it be sent to my email to print?
on laptop right now
Yes, it should
so what is going on with my groin area sweating as a female?
but you can ALWAYS log back in here and go to 'My Questions' and you can see the entire transcript there
the groin - this could be menopausal symptoms - fairly common
I am a clean person
I am sure you are
Do not worry about it
But, try to get another ob/gyn who actually CARES about you.
should I use powder -
I hope this helps
Yes you can use powder
so could a gyn help solve issues that occur with peri-menopause?
Yes, absolutely - this is what a gynecologist is suppose to do
and a new gynecologist should be looked into if your current gyn does not want to do this
