I am concerned. My fertility doctor weaned me off estrogen
I am concerned. My fertility doctor weaned me off estrogen patches at week 5 of pregnancy, then restarted them at week 6. I am concerned about whether or not this will cause a miscarriage. The day my estrogen was restarted, the doctor did an exam to check for baby heartbeat. He was very rough, and the exam was painful. After the exam I started having sharp shooting pains and general vaginal pain that slowly faded through the night. I am worried that the fetus underwent too much strain; a flooding of estrogen again, and possible trauma from deep probing. The doctor was covering for my regular doctor. He thought he was examining a different patient, and I had to correct him of who I was. I am just nervous now. I don't want to seem like a fussy patient, but I don't won't to have to suffer a miscarriage because of mal practice either.

I am an otherwise healthy female aged 58. Since I went
I am an otherwise healthy female aged 58. Since I went through menopause a few years ago I have found sexual intercourse to be extremely painful. I have tried lubricants but the problem seems to be internal. It feels as though I am a virgin. It's very discouraging as my husband and I used to really enjoy our sex life. I am seeing my OB-GYN to ask about something like Premarin. Any other ideas on whats going on with my body?

I had a sexual incontour about two weeks ago, it was extremely painful and I started bleeding and passing clots for about 3 days, then it slowed and stopped after one week with a little spotting for a few days. I was imbarrassed to go to the doctor, I just wonder if this will happen every time I have sex from now on or is this normal?

I am 21 years old, I have never had sex, and I have missed
I am 21 years old, I have never had sex, and I have missed my period for 3 months in a row.I live a high stress life (I am a college student), my diet prior to this month has been poor (Usually 1-2 meals, mostly junk food), I get no exercise what so ever (I am very sedimentary and do most of my work sitting or lying down), I have a high caffeine intake (3 cups of coffee a day, sometimes energy drinks as well).I don't have any irregular pain in my body, so I don't think it's a cyst. Sometimes my nipples are sensitive though, and I have (for a while) had strangely excess hair growth on my chest, chin, side burns, and upperlip.I have asked a few family members and they stay it's likely stress and my dietary habits, but I'm worried and feel rather lost.
I am have period problems. I am considered obese and have
Hello. I am have period problems. I am considered obese and have always had irregular periods that took months to arrive and when they come finally, they are very heavy. But my last period like that was in July. Starting last month I started a very light period at the same time as the girls in my office. It stayed light for 6 days and thenights went away. This month I started at the same time as the same girls again, but it was very light again and has been on and off for almost 3 weeks now. Never ends up on a pad or underwear. Just when I wipe. I have been under high stress since January and I dont know what is happening. But I'd really like to see a real period. What could this be?
I am 53 years old, and last 7 months or so my period areView more ob gyn questions
I am 53 years old, and for the last 7 months or so my period are extremily heavy with clots and severe cramping. I do not have bleeding between periods. Prior to 7 months ago my periods were coming about every 2-3 months. Now like clock work and bad. I have talked to a gyn and he agrees a hysterectomy would be the answer. I went to him wanting one. My question is should I wait a while since I'm 53 maybe I will be done in a few months. Another question is my mom passed away of ovarian cancer, so for preventive I want the ovaries out too. My doctor says I can't go on estrogen due to I'm on a blood thinner. I don't want to be miserable. I'm on a blood thinner only for preventive, cause I have cardiomyopathy. I have never had a dvt, and I have already used estrogen and I have been fine.
