Dr. Owen :

Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.

Dr. Owen :

Hello

Dr. Owen :

So to be sure - your periods are Normal, but you are just having these headaches, correct?

Dr. Owen :

Do you have any migraine headaches?

Dr. Owen :

Do you use any birth control?

Dr. Owen :

Hi

Customer:

No bcontrol and no sex since Dec 22nd. No migraines.

Dr. Owen :

so just these constant headaches?

Dr. Owen :

And, do you have any vision problems such as blurriness or double vision?

Customer:

Just brief headache followed by dizziness almost like heaf swelling eyes sinking/perception distorted. Always have heavy normal periods with clitting this time constant flow but not as clotty but regular color and last day totally brown no gue though then sex three days ltr and next day these symptoms. No symptoms today little cramping early this morning

Dr. Owen :

when was your last headache?

Dr. Owen :

do you have any medical problems such as a thyroid problem?

Customer:

15aug yesterday morning then right before i ate round 6:45pm which is when I felt deeply dizziness

Customer:

No medical prob lst vist pap july 23 on bday

Customer:

do nt have headaches reg and this headache was different

Dr. Owen :

can you describe how different this headache was?

Dr. Owen :

Also, what is your age?

Customer:

always cramp during period before and after but nt once period is gone off

Dr. Owen :

Was this considered to be a headache that was one of your worst ever?

Customer:

no just with dizziness

Dr. Owen :

Well this could be associated with a Premenstrual syndrome headache - but since you do NOT normally get these types of headaches - my concern would be for a problem possibly many different areas - such as the Sella Turcica - which could have a problem with the thyroid - or you might have an aneurysm around the 'Circle of Willis', or you might have an Auditory nerve problem (that could cause the dizziness as the auditory nerve controls the your balance to a point.

Dr. Owen :

So, given this is 'Different' for you and New - this does deserve to be more closely evaluated - and you Need an exam - so you need a 'Cranial Nerve' exam of all 12 cranial nerves.

Dr. Owen :

You also need to have a MRI of the head - to check for any masses or areas of bleeding.

Dr. Owen :

but if all is Normal - this could just be a routine PMS headache - but you do want to make absolutely sure of this.

Dr. Owen :

Now, this could also be just an infection causing this such as a viral or bacteria syndrome - and hence once the infection is gone, the symptoms will go away too.

Dr. Owen :

Hi - Are you there?

Dr. Owen :

I see you have left

Dr. Owen :

When you come back online - I hope this helps you

Dr. Owen :

Please click on EXCELLENT for helping you

Dr. Owen :

Thank you

Dr. Owen :

Dr Owen

Customer:

Dr. I do not have history no health issues nor am i dealing with any stree at the present. What i am concerned about is pregnancy due to cramping, timing within cycle period and light spotting the day after sex???

Dr. Owen :

okay - you did not mention that - but Unlikely you are pregnant if you had a period.

Dr. Owen :

Sex on the 14th would not produce pregnancy symptoms this soon

Dr. Owen :

and very Unlikely to get pregnant from a period starting on the 8th then sex 6 days later....

Customer:

Please refer to my first post. I am usually normal and get checkups regularly my period has come and gone on time.

Dr. Owen :

Usually sex about 2 weeks after your period starts is when most women get pregnant.

Dr. Owen :

This is your only post

Dr. Owen :

you posted this question on a different account

Dr. Owen :

you have 2 accounts - so I can not see your first post

Dr. Owen :

The ONLY thing I see is this:

Dr. Owen :

Had sex week july 29 and, Aug 5. Then period came on normally on Aug 8 then off Aug 12. Had sex Aug14, then 15 headaches on and off and dizziness then after urinating very light pinkish fluid on tissue. Then nothing else except cramping. Wat cld this be?

Dr. Owen :

"

Customer:

ok i also hd sex prior to period coming on please go back and read my posts along with the frst one then say...

Customer:

sure hope not

Dr. Owen :

I can not access your previous posts because you posted them under a different account

Dr. Owen :

I do not have access to your account

Dr. Owen :

I am JUST a Doctor here trying to help you

Dr. Owen :

You have no other questions under this account

Dr. Owen :

You have asked me what these headaches could be -

Dr. Owen :

and given you have had a period - this is not associated with a pregnancy

Dr. Owen :

but more likely associated with premenstrual syndrome or the other possibilities I have described.

Dr. Owen :

Do you need any additional help

Dr. Owen :

I am very much trying to help you

Dr. Owen :

May I ask - what is your 'MAIN' question - are you asking if you are pregnant?

Dr. Owen :

Because if you are - try just to ask straight out - I am here to help you?

Dr. Owen :

Do this -

Dr. Owen :

do a Pregnancy test - and then Come back and tell me the result of the test.

Dr. Owen :

BUT, use a GOOD test (not a cheap dollar test) - so use a test such as EPT, Clear blue or First Response.

Dr. Owen :

I will be here to help you when ever you are ready

Dr. Owen :

Take care

Dr. Owen :

Dr Owen

Dr. Owen :

I really am here to help - I can help you with anything related to this -

Dr. Owen :

Dr. Owen :

Dr. Owen :

Dr Owen

Customer:

Dr owen your response to my situation is questionable to ur professionalism and qualuty. It would seem that a woman starting out with post concerning period and cycle would lead to more direct concerns rather than suggestions fr other problems i never hd. Also, i pd fr consulting with ur forums expertise which suggest i considered ur expertisE befre jumping the rope to get pregnacy test-- very unsatisfied

Dr. Owen :

I am confused

Dr. Owen :

You asked about your headaches?

Dr. Owen :

then you asked me to look at your previous posts - I am very sorry but I can Not see your previous posts

Dr. Owen :

so I can not see what you went over previously

Dr. Owen :

I wish you very well

Dr. Owen :

I have been trying to help you

Dr. Owen :

and when a woman says they have a period - this tells me they are Most likely not pregnant - especially when the period came on when expected.

Dr. Owen :

Please if you have a more specific question I can help you with - please ask

Dr. Owen :

Please also realize I can only know what you tell me -

Dr. Owen :

thank you

Dr. Owen :

dr own

Dr. Owen :

And, when I looked at your question--- it appeared you were concerned with these 15 headaches you had - which is very unusual to have... - that is what is concerning that I thought.

Dr. Owen :

Well take care and I wish you the best

Dr. Owen :

take care

Customer:

Wat r u reading no 15 headaches! Originally I stated HD SEX week of July on 29 then Aug. Then Aug. 5 period came on schedule and normally on Aug. 8_12 ..hd sex Aug.14 then on Aug.15, I experience headache and dizziness and after wiping from urinating, i notice very light pinkish fluid on tissue also experieced cramping on this day. New day r next day no spitting bt lite cramping. Wat cld this be?

Dr. Owen :

okay so you did NOT have 15 headaches?

Customer:

I posted in so mny wrds this message originally. Dont know where u gt lost??? Perhaps my concern is more clearer now.

Dr. Owen :

okay - then how about this....

Dr. Owen :

please just tell me in a single sentence what your question is -

Dr. Owen :

I have the background of your periods and when you had sex...

Dr. Owen :

but what is your question

Customer:

I asked, wat could this be?

Customer:

What r the possibility that I may be pregnant?

Customer:

no 15 headaches.

Dr. Owen :

Let me clarify then - you are ask what the urinating with light pink fluid could be, correct?

Customer:

correct and cramping and dizziness.

Dr. Owen :

okay - now I get it

Customer:

This all occured the day after intercorse but had sex 3 times close together within cycle phase

Dr. Owen :

and you do not have any thyroid problems correct?

Dr. Owen :

and what is your age (you never gave that to me)?

Dr. Owen :

do you have normal PAP smears?

Dr. Owen :

and do you use any birth control?

Customer:

I am 38. Just hd pap on july 23. U have normal paps and checkups.

Dr. Owen :

GREAT

Customer:

I have normal periods on scedule 28day cycle.

Dr. Owen :

Thyroid?

Customer:

I had nt been having sex reg. Since Dec. 22 six months ago

Customer:

Dnt use bc and no thyroid problems

Dr. Owen :

okay

Dr. Owen :

Well these symptoms you are having are usually just related to a mild UTI - urinary tract infection, or this could be a mild Cervicitis - which means an inflammation of the cervix or a mild infection of the cervix - but nothing serious given you have had Normal exams and normal PAPs.

Customer:

I just hd pap on july 23. They are always normal. Bt thanks

Dr. Owen :

and just to reiterate on the dizziness/ headaches - if these are continuing - please look above from what I originally said - but if they are gone - then please do not worry about them

Customer:

Hw does this happen mild cerv...

Customer:

this occurs when?

Dr. Owen :

Cervicitis - this could be just a mild infection or inflammation (not necessarily infected) and just irritation and/or exposure to many organisms we carry on our body can cause this. Also a pH (acid-base ) imbalance can cause this too.

Customer:

Ok thanks just wanted to know if pregnancy was possiblity r implantation

Dr. Owen :

no, given you have had a recent period - I do not think this is a pregnancy

Dr. Owen :

and given you had sex on the 29th and then the 5th - and with today the 16th - do a pregnancy test - as the Newer pregnancy tests are very accurate at this point.

Customer:

Great!

Dr. Owen :

But I do not think you are pregnant - the timing is wrong

Dr. Owen :

thank you

Dr. Owen :

and I am very sorry for the initial misunderstanding.

Dr. Owen :

I wish you well

Dr. Owen :

thank you

Customer:

All is well. Have a great day

Dr. Owen :

I truly am sorry for the initial misunderstanding

Dr. Owen :

sometimes it is hard to get what you want to know through words alone -

Dr. Owen :

Have a great up coming weekend

Customer:

U same. I understand just didnt know if u were fr real at that point but...i am pleased. I wld like another child bt nt now, I am in a great place. In life right now.
