Customer Question

I am 43 years old. My periods are every 25 days without exception. Prior to the start of my last cycle (about 5 days prior) I spotted for less than a few hours...then my period was normal. That period ended and it is now 4 days later and I am spotting a little heavier this time with cramps and back ache....Is this normal? I am not on any type of birth control and I am not pregnant.

Hello.

Are you sexually active ?

Do you have night sweats?

Any change in urination ?

Any emotional sufferings , stress?

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Average sex life as a married person.

 

I do not have night sweats. I am urinating more as I am drinking a lot of water.

Two Tuesdays ago I starting taking the Orvo Detox product which has a lot of herbs in it. Supposedly it can make you a little jittery/dizzy but they say it is due to dehydration so I have beefed up the amount of water I am drinking per the blog entries I have read. I took this for 7 days straight and then was off for 7 days. I spotted on the first day I ever took this product and today was my first day back on after the 7 days off and the spotting reoccured. I had the backache and cramps yesterday however and that was prior to taking the first dose during my next 7 day campaign. I dont know if it is even related.

 

I have the normal stress in a management position and lost my mother back in March. I don't feel like either of these have bothered me to the point that I would just now experience a change in my cycle...at least I don't think so.

Expert:  Dr Josh replied 6 years ago.

Well, as such vaginal spotting , is not associated with the use of Orvo Detox product .

This may just be co-incidence that you get spotting at time of of this product.

Having vaginal spotting between periods is called Metrorrhagia.

It can be due to variety of causes

like hormonal imbalance , endometriosis, DUB , uterine fibroids, Polyp ,malignancy ,to name a few.

 

In my opinion you need a Pelvic examination to assess the condition of the cervix and investigations like TVS Ultrasound for further evaluation

So my advice is to take appointment from Gynecologist soon.

Kindest Regards
