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.

I am 42 years old. I have always had painless periods my

I am 42 years old. I have always had painless periods my entire life until the last 4 months. On day 2 of my period, I have bad pain in my lower left side. It hurts to move and is painful if you press on my side. Day 3 and 4 and so on the pain slowly subsides and disappears until my next period. I had a vaginal ultrasound done at the end of my period last month that showed nothing other than a very small fibriod. My Dr said he didn't believe that was the cause of my pain. But I left with no answers. Blood work is normal and he also tested my thyroid functions and those were also normal. I can live with this pain but just concerned because it's new and would like to find the cause.

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 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.

My periods are irregular... But not too irregular. They usually

My periods are irregular... But not too irregular. They usually begin around the 23rd or after of each month... My husband and I had sex April 13th (unprotected) & I started bleeding April 15th... I'm also cramping & have slight breast tenderness... I've also been in & out of the hospital due to pelvic pain since the end of last year & had a laparoscopy back in January... Found out I have severe bladder/uterus adhesion (due to c-section after our first child) & multiple fibrods... We are wondering if there is a possibility of me being pregnant? I haven't taken a test yet because it's only 3 days after sex, but my menstruation is a week early? I'm scared, we want another baby, but my docs have been saying it may be difficult to become pregnant... Please help us! Thank you.

I am 37 years old, and I have had an ectopic last year,

Hi, I am 37 years old, and I have had an ectopic last year, in June. I got an hycosy done last month and the results looked fine. Another doctor now suggests that since my one blood test seemed high, (not sure which one it was), he thinks my tube is useless. And that I should have done a laproscopy. Can I possibly have a conversation with you?Thanks!!
