Recent Hysteroscopy questions

I recently had a hysteroscopy. I've been doubling up on

Hi there. I recently had a hysteroscopy. I've been doubling up on pills because of slight bleeding. My discharge is very light tan and I've doubled up with no nausea at all. Can I continue the doubling up for the remainder of the pack?JA: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?Customer: Never. Last one was three weeks ago. Every single birth control gives me dark brown spotting. Doubling up on the microgestin has made it extremely light and bearableJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No

I am 30 years old. My past two periods have been very clotty

Hello, I am 30 years old. My past two periods have been very clotty and heavy for about two days and then everything pretty much stops. The periods are very painful, but are over quick. When I raise up in the morning the blood and everything will gush so I have to run to the bathroom quickly where more clots and blood come out. After that it is still bloody and clotty, but it's not to where I am soaking a pad per hour. The clots are usually long, but are sometimes about the size of a half dollar. So not golf ball size, but definitely larger than a quarter. Prior to October I only had a period every other month. In October I had a d & c done due to a bad pregnancy. Now my periods are regular, but they are heavier than they have ever been, but now they are shorter.

I was hoping you could advise me, in 2015 I had an

Hi,I was hoping you could advise me, in 2015 I had an hysteroscopy done as I was having continuous bleeding for a year, I believe the outcome was hyperplasia and the lining of my Wimbledon was thick so that did a d&c, again the same procedure was done at the start of the year in 2016, my periods finally became monthly however were not a usual cycle. I was trying for a baby and last year was put on clomid, my last cycle for taking clomid was Jan 2017 and I fell pregnant in feb/March. Unable to pinpoint time I have become pregnant due to irregular periods. So I have had a few early scans and been advised that pregnancy is not developing and that there was no heart beat. Fetal development was slow and was told it's a delayed miscarriage. I attended a private clinic to get confirmation she said my lining was too thick 3cm so there is a lot of tissue to pass out. She recommended a dc, I have my nhs appointment tomorrow and feel they will advise the same. My concern is as I have had 2 dcs in last few years will having a 3rd weaken my cervix? Making chances of me falling pregnant again less? I started spotting last week it has been on and off, brown and sometimes bright red spotting. Please can you advise if having a dc may reduce my chances for future. Many thanks

Did endometrial biopsy, my provider said sample was mucousy not much tissue to get sample is that a bad sign? I am very scared of what it will show?
