Greetings.

Have you done a pregnancy test?
Usually how much duration is your period cycle?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

cycle varies. sometimes 28, 35,49.


 


i did a home test 2 weeks ago but it was negative.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
Hello,

You should repeat the pregnancy test. Also an ultrasound would also be advised to rule out an ectopic pregnancy which may be responsible for the irregular bleed and pregnancy test may be delayed. The other causes can be;

1) fibroid uterus
2) endocervical polyp
3) hormonal imbalances.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using JustAnswer.

so does it mean that you get negative results for ectopic pregnancy

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
The pregnancy hormones take far more time to rise to be detected by the pregnancy test (especially the urine home pregnancy test) in ectopic pregnancy test.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i am taking pregnacare conception pills as well as m2 tone . could that result in hormonal imbalances and cause the bleeding?

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
These usually do not cause hormonal abnormality. The hormonal imbalance can be just spontaneous body responses and no specific cause is responsible.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok. which ultrasound should i go in for?

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
A pelvic (vaginal) ultrasound is best.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i saw him and he said he would'nt do the US .he gave me provera and clomid. i took clomid the 2nd day after i saw blood i did an LH on my own .

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.

Following can be the causes;

1) Fibroid uterus

2) Uterine polyp

3) Endocervical polyp

4) Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism

5) Prolactin abnormalities

6) Endometrial hyperplasia

7) Other hormonal aberrations

8) Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

An ultrasound, blood work and pelvic examination are done to determine the cause.

what does LH of 12.4 mean


 

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
This is the normal value of LH. So this is not likely to be responsible for the spotting. A normal result for am adult female is 5 to 25 IU/L.
