I'm wondering if there is a link between female reproductive
I'm wondering if there is a link between female reproductive hormones and the gastro track.JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?Customer: I have seen several doctors over several years, none have been able to figure out whats wrong with me. I'm only taking nurofen for pain, I have a Mirena implant too, but no other medication.JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: I have had pain episodes for three years. They happen randomly, several months apart and can last for several days. They used to last 1-3 days, but now are up to 9. I wake up at night with a deep ache in my lower abdomen and urgency to use the bathroom. Relieving myself makes the pain worse and it becomes very severe lasting 10-20 minutes. Less severe episodes can last up to an hour. I get fatigue and aches during the day following these pains. The pains are concurrent with breast sensitivity and engorgment. I'm currently in an episode. Its the worst one so far, I've been getting bad pains all day every day since the Thursday before last. And my breasts are sore, particularly after I wake up.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: In June this year I had a laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and a scopy of the bladder. All normal, no sign of endometriosis. My blood work is all normal. My urine tests are mostly normal but I have a creatinine count at the top of the normal range.
Yesterday I got my results back from my vaginal ultrasound.
Yesterday I got my results back from my vaginal ultrasound. It showed that I had fluid build up in my endometrial lining. I've been cramping really bad and lower back pain. Lots of lower pressure. Should I be concerned? I'm going to have a hysteroscopy done within the next couple weeks...I took some ibuprofen but the pain is just not letting up.JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: Being active and moving makes the pain worse. And no..no injuriesJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I've had 3 csections...had our last baby 7 months ago.
I am 53 years old, and last 7 months or so my period are
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.

My wife has had these sharp pains in her vagina and uterus
My wife has had these sharp pains in her vagina and uterus area and it has been going on, at complete random, for about 2 years now. They make her unable to move from the fetal position and last about an hour. Doctors have told her it could be anywhere from ovulation cramps to cysts popping in her uterus and that there's nothing they can do about it. I find this very had to believe considering the medicine advancements out there. What could be the real issue?
I've been having past year irregular bleeding, mostly when
Hi I've been having for the past year irregular bleeding, mostly when its time for my period. I also thought it happens when I am intimate with my husband. But I notice its not always the case. I first thought he might be hurting something inside that's causing the bleeding. My gynae did some test but said nothing to be concerned about. Anyways now I have athletes foot for the first time now for over two weeks. I only started using the powder few days ago and bought a cream today. But today's problem is that my vagina feels kind of dry and uncomfortable. I scratch my foot a lot. Could I don't know what to think if I am spreading the fungus. I am 43 no kids. Im wondering if anything could be a symptom of early menopause.
Last cycle was April 11th. Had a transvaginal ultrasound on
Last cycle was April 11th. Had a transvaginal ultrasound on May 16th which showed a 3km gestational sac along the endometrium in the fundus of my uterus. Endometrium 1.1cm. Beta HCG on May16th was less than 1 which is considered negative. Repeat Beta jog on May 20th was 4 which is still considered negative but it had doubled. Is this an early pregnancy and is it normal to see a gestational sac before beta is in positive range
I am 53 i have 3 fibroids last few years, i had no
I am 53 i have 3 fibroids for the last few years, i had no problems but on march 23 i started my period and it was basically normal then after 2 days i started bleeding heavily, with clots and not hemorrhaging but real heavy.. i consulted my ob i had a new ultrasound done which showed i still had 3 fibroids and they were small as in the previous u/s 1 year prior. I was going on vacation and i asked my ob to prescribe provera to stop the bleeding. I bled for 15 days and it stopped on its own a few days before went on vacation. I held off on taking the proverb and a few days later i saw a tint of blood so i took the meds fro 5 days. I came back after 12 days of nation on april 30 and on may 2 I started my period as usual and again on day 2 i started to bleed heavy and the last 2 days is really much less like is going to stop. I need an opinion because my ob wants to do laparoscopic surgery and I am not sure this is necessary. FYI i did not have my period for 2 years straight but once it returned i have had normal periods for 6 years until last month.
Am 58 and had hysteroscopy two weeks ago thickening
Am 58 and had hysteroscopy two weeks ago for slight thickening of uterine wall and some spotting. A few fibroids found but not removed and was told everything normal. After masturbating yesterday noticed one slight red spot on toilet paper after urinating. What could cause this?
I am scheduled hysteroscope and D&C on Friday to diagnose
I am scheduled for a hysteroscope and D&C on Friday to diagnose a suspected uterine polyp. I had originally gone to the doctor in late fall last year with pelvic discomfort and spotting. Ultrasound diagnosed fibroid, ovarian cyst and suspected polyp. I didn't get in to see the gynecologist until last month. In the meantime the symptoms have resolved, no more pelvic discomfort (I was told it was probably due to the ovarian cyst that has since disappeared) and I have not had any bleeding at all for almost 2 months. Is this D&C still needed ( I keep being told it is suggested but really up to me as they don't suspect anything) I was also diagnosed with abnormal squamis cells of undetermined origin on my last pap, will be having a repeat pap next month. Is it safe to have this D&C with possible abnormal cervical cells? Will these abnormal cells be transferred into my uterus during the procedure?
