In May i had a miscarriage, me and my partner want to get

Hi, in May i had a miscarriage, me and my partner want to get pregnant again, my period came towards the end of june, i bought a clear blue ovulation kit to test when my surge is high to conceive. I had to readings, one on july 11, and then it dropped low again but on the 16th i had another peak, both of these times me and my partner had sex at least a day or two before the readings. Im not having pregnancy symptoms, and my period is around the corner oth july 28th. Pregnancy test came out negative 6 days before period. Is it possible that it's still too early for me to test, or should i just assume i didnt conceive? And why did i get two readings? Thank you

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.

I am 51 years old with no history of endometriosis, cancer,

I am 51 years old with no history of endometriosis, cancer, etc. In February of 2015 I had a period. Then in May of 2015 I had unprotected sex and used the Plan B Morning After pill and had a very heavy period three days later. I was later told by my doctor that this period induced by the Plan B pill did not count and that since it has been over a year since February of 2015 I am in menopause.During the last week I have had all the symptoms of PMS-swollen, tender breasts, bloating, tiredness, irritability. Today I woke up and discovered that I have apparently started a period. I have bleeding, abdominal cramping, and the breast tenderness is gone. I just sent my friend out for Kotex; I thought I was done with all this. I have looked around the Internet and have seen this sort of thing happen to numerous women. So was the period last May from the Plan B pill or was it a genuine period and I am NOT out of menopause and I should be using birth control?? My last Pap and exam was last May, had another exam including screens for STDs last month. Please tell me what is going on! Thank you.

I had an Ultrasound on Friday. These are the Results. I cant

I had an Ultrasound on Friday. These are the Results. I cant get into a Doctor for a Month. The Family Practitioner couldn't and wouldn't answer any questions she said she didn't know about it, its not her specialty. Are these things combined something I have to worry about cancer for? My understanding is that The Uterine Growth isnt a big thing on its own. The Nabothian Cysts are not big on their own, although from what I can find its a odd place for them. But combined with my uterus being enlarged and free flowing fluid plus the other two things Its possibly something to worry about. If a Hysterectomy is needed and you can't determine cancer until after its all opened and removed. Are you taking a risk by not going to a oncologist/gynocologist? My understanding is that it is one of the bigest mistakes women make because the procedure is a lot more intense when done by an oncologyst/gynocologist.Can you explain what the results mean?AGE: 42 yearsDOB: 06/24/1973 DATE OFEXAM: 04/15/2016 11:15:04 AM EXAM:PELVIC ULTRASOUND HISTORY: Menorrhagia.FINDINGS: Transabdominal and transvaginal imaging was performed. The uterus is inhomogeneous and at the fundus there is an echosolid projection. This projection measures 2.3 x 2.6 x 2.5 cm. This likely is an exophytic fibroid. It is not definitely pedunculated. The endometrial stripe is not well seen. There is no fluid in the endometrial cavity. The uterus has overall dimensions of 9.5 x 5.5 x 5.8 cm. There are numerous nabothian cysts noted. The right ovary abuts the uterus in the region of the cysts and the ovary contains multiple follicles. With the ovarian parenchyma thinned and difficult to see, it is even more difficult to distinguish from the uterus. There is no evidence of a dominant cyst on the right ovary. The left ovary is 2.9 x 2.3 x 2.1 cm. It only contains a solitary small cyst. There is no fluid in the endometrial cavity. However, there is free fluid in the cul-de-sac.IMPRESSION:1. INHOMOGENEOUS UTERUS WITH NO OBVIOUS DISCRETE FIBROIDS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF AN EXOPHYTIC PROJECTION OFF THE FUNDUS MEASURING 2.3 X 2.6 X 2.5 CM.2. MODERATE AMOUNT OF FREE FLUID IN THE CUL-DE-SAC.3. THE LEFT OVARY IS UNREMARKABLE. THE RIGHT CONTAINS MULTIPLE SMALL FOLLICLES BUT IS DIFFICULT TO DISTINGUISH FROM THE UTERUS WHERE THERE ARE ALSO NUMEROUS NABOTHIAN CYSTS.

I got an ultrasound done last week and I was told I had a cyst,

I got an ultrasound done last week and I was told I had a cyst, last year I had an ablation, I have 3 fibroids, and calcification of an ovary, I had a mamo done on Monday and it showed I also had microcalcifications on the right upper left, It hurts at time and I could feel a nod there, but now I don't feel it anymore. I also have lipomas in several areas of my body, and chronic pain on the upper left side of the abdomen, on top of that I have blood on my stools. I also had surgery last year to remove a fatty mass I had on the left side where the pain was. I've been told the pain is due to somatization. Is this something I should be concerned about?JA: The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Gynecologist before I connect you two?Customer: breastJA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now.

I've been diagnosed with an 9cm cyst on my right ovary. I haven't really had any symptoms and wasn't even aware it was there until a pelvic exam was performed.I'm really worried about this affecting the functions of the ovary and leading to infertility. My periods and ovulations had been very regular until a month prior to the diagnosis.Also, what are the changes that this ovary has gone gangrene and I'm just not exhibiting any symptoms?
