I just had my first baby via emergency Csection 5 weeks ago.
Hello! I just had my first baby via emergency Csection 5 weeks ago. My husband and I were not sexually for 8 days before this due to my water breaking early and needing bedrest. Then 2 weeks ago I got on the depo shot birth control and got permission from my doctor to resume sex in a couple weeks. I have been experiencing some spotting apparently because of the shot, and some itching of the vaginal area. This morning we had sex with lots of water based lubricant for my comfort (we don't use condoms) for the second time since her birth and each time as soon as the semen contacts my insides, I burn very painfully for around 3-4 minutes. I've heard of semen allergies but we've never had this problem our whole marriage. I am unsure whether the burning is due to hormone imbalance from the birth control/nursing, or increased acidity in our diets somehow, or if I have a yeast infection that needs treatment. I have never had one before and don't know symptoms. Any advice would be so helpful as I have to wait two weeks for an appointment with my doctor and I would not like to have to dread sex that long. Thank you!

For the past 3 years I have been using Trinessa oral
Hello!For the past 3 years I have been using Trinessa oral contraceptive with no problems. Regular periods on schedule every month.This past July I switched doctors and my new OBGYN prescribed Tri-Linyah oral contraceptive. I started the new pack on August 14th after my period ended.Had my regular period on time as always in September, it always comes the Wednesday after I start the placebo week.However, in October, my period has yet to come. It was due on Wednesday October 5th. I take the pills every morning at roughly the same time. I do have a boyfriend and we are sexually active, however, the last time we had sex was on October 1st and before that we had sex on September 16th, and we used the pull out method both times.My question is, will Tri-Linyah cause me to miss periods? I have NEVER missed a period before on birth control. If not, could I be pregnant? I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative, but I am still feeling "weird"...could be my mind playing tricks on me though.Thank you for your answer and time.
Alright, I have multiple questions. My girlfriend was put on
Alright, I have multiple questions. My girlfriend was put on the birth control pill a few months ago, and she missed a few pills here and there. She just was horrible with taking them, so in the mean time we was active, without protection. I'm not worried about if she is pregnant or not, being we both have very good stable jobs! And she already has children in a past relationship. Here's the symptoms I have received from her by just talking and noticing things..Extreme fatigue, she can sleep all night long until morning. And can wake up just as exhausted if not more.Boobs have grown another cup size and they still fall out of the new cup size.She has been sick and queasy.She was having some lower back pain.She's missed 2 periods in a row.And she is having extreme mood swings, when I mention being possibly pregnant and asking to take a test to eliminate any questions? She denies it and says no she isn't going to test.Any suggestions and answers would be helpful.Thank you.

I had a d&c for missed miscarriage (heart stopped at 8w3d)
I had a d&c for missed miscarriage (heart stopped at 8w3d) and 5 days later (Sept 26) had emergency surgery due to ovarian torsion and sepsis shock which required removal of my left ovary. Two large 5cm cysts had formed quickly (not the corpus luteum cyst) on the left ovary and caused torsion. The ovary was un-twisted but when the largest cyst was popped the ovary "withered" and was dead. I am two weeks into recovery and ultrasound showed a 3cm cyst on my right ovary and it is causing pain in my right side. I am 34 years old, had been on birth control for 15 years until getting off it in May and getting pregnant in July and it was my first pregnancy. My husband and I desperately want to have at least 1 baby. Would you recommend I get on birth control for a couple months to stop the cysts? Or would it cause more harm than good? I''m concerned the hormone changes would again cause shock on my system when I got off the BC again, but I''m also scared of more cysts since I''m down to 1 ovary.
I'm a 47-year-old woman. I have never had a regular monthly
I'm a 47-year-old woman. I have never had a regular monthly cycle, but in the last two years I've had random spotting between cycles, a sudden onset of facial acne (started last spring), and worsening cramps and diarrhea.Most recently, I woke up in the middle of the night (Monday night, Tuesday morning) and spent the next several hours vomiting, then started my period Tuesday afternoon. I am still nauseous, and I can't find any food that I ate Monday that might have triggered the vomiting.Is it possible that the vomiting is the newest PMS symptom?Is there anything I can do (about any of this) that doesn't involve hormonal birth control (I already struggle with depressive tendencies)?

That was the end of August.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No - I was on the pill for five years and have been off for a month and a half now.
