I went to my Doctor in Jul/Aug 2016 due to painful

I went to my Doctor in Jul/Aug 2016 due to painful intercourse as I have never had an issue before. He did a pelvic exam and said everything appeared normal, no signs of menopause (I'm 47). My bloodwork a few months before supported normal hormones, I also had saliva testing that said hormones normal. He sent me for an ultrasound as well. The ultrasound showed an ovarian cyst 1.7 cm and then when my pap came back it showed endometrial cells. The ultrasound showed normal endometrium. I had a follow up ultrasound in six weeks that showed cyst was 3.5 cm, but they weren't sure if it was the same one. I have another ultrasound today to see if it is still there or if it has grown. He tried putting me on the pill to see if it would shrink it, but I didn't like the effects of it, so I stopped taking it and just went back to using my natural progesterone. I should mention that I have also been having follow up ultrasounds on my thyroid which is covered in cysts, and my breasts which showed cysts for the last year and a half or two years. My sister had stage 3 triple positive breast cancer. Do you think that they should have sent me to a gynecologist by now?JA: In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: Good, I would say.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: My doctor always felt that I probably had endometriosis due to my painful periods since I started at age 13. My periods are very light and always have been. For the past two years I have had breakthrough spotting each month. I have had 6 miscarriages and 2 live births. They figured that the miscarriages were due to my progesterone being too low and my last pregnancy in 1993 I used progesterone from week 7-10 to support healthy pregnancy. I had been waiting for a biopsy to prove low progesterone when I got pregnant, so I never did have the test. I had one D&C after my second miscarriage.

I had several faintly positive pregnancy tests over the

I had several faintly positive pregnancy tests over the course of 5 days followed by a negative test. I had a blood test done on Tuesday and it showed that my hCG was only 4. That afternoon, I started bleeding and it has been like heavy period. My doctor said this was a chemical pregnancy. I had my hCG rechecked on Friday and it was less than 1. However today I have abdominal pain and back ache just on the right side, as well as some shooting pains in the pelvic area. I am worried that it could actually be an ectopic pregnancy, as I read online that in rare cases ectopic pregnancy can have negative hCG tests. Does this sound like a possibility or does it sound fairly certain that it was indeed an early miscarriage? Am I just worrying for no reason?

I am 6 weeks pregnant with twins and I am very scared about

Hi, I am 6 weeks pregnant with twins and I am very scared about something that happened while I was sleeping last night. I had to urinate but was having a very vivid dream where I could not go to the bathroom because I was too busy. I eventually woke up but noticed I was doing a very vigorous "pee dance" in my sleep which consisted of very vigorous, almost violent pelvic thrusting. Even after emptying my bladder my abdomen and lower back were sore and are still sore now, 6 hours later. Could this have hurt my developing embryos or cause a miscarriage?

Usually I may spot a small amount the day before then I have a heavy flow for about 3 days. I'm usually every 28 to 31 days on the nose but last month I had 2 periods then went 28 days now I'm doing the above, very light flow. I've been on Zoloft since March, and started working out in the gym 3 weeks ago 5 days a week. Could those affect my period? I'm 38 and not pregnantJA: Are you in any pain?
