I've always had very regular periods. Every 28 days, light

Hi there! I've always had very regular periods. Every 28 days, light and lasting 4-6 days. Back in October, I had a period where I started getting huge clots. Still only lasted 4-6 days. In November, I was passing golf ball size clots every singe day and went straight to OB. He said either start BC or take ibuprofen. So I did ibprofin and that helped. Since then, they have been fairly normal but with terrible cramps. This last month in May, my husband and I had sex on Memorial Day and I started spotting that night. My period wasn't due till June 9th. Anyways, 27 days later and I'm still bleeding. I had an ultrasound and it showed a 4.5cm cyst on left ovary and that my uterine lining was 4mm. They also did a pap and HPV test which both came back negative. I'm baffled at what is going on. My CBC came back good as well. He gave me BC which I started Friday and in hopes the bleeding would stop. What else is there to do. I'm not understanding what is going on. Do I have cancer somewhere that we are missing you think? My thyroid is normal as well I should include in here. Please help. I'm scared and worried. Is there any other tests I need done? Does this just sound hormonal. How long will it take for the BC to help me.

I had my naturally blonde hair ghlighted 3 weeks ago and

Hi,I had my naturally blonde hair highlighted 3 weeks ago and unfortunately had severe damage from over-processing. I immediately had breakage and hair loss (from the root). I've lost 50% of my hair at this point & am unsure what to do. It's still extremely brittle; therefore, I'm doing a salon-quality hair mask 3x a week, plus special conditioners. I understand the breakage due to severely damaged brittle hair; however, I'm concerned about the hair loss at the scalp. I do have slight itching. I'm currently taking 10,000mg biotin, fish oil, and vit E. Can you make any other recommendations? Should I be using a Rogain-type product? Thank you.

My son now aged 15 who cycles at a national level suffered a drastic drop in level of performance from May 15 last to date. A blood test in August indicated a low haemoglobin count of 11.9 g/dl, his ANA is positive at 1 in 160 but his renal liver bone profile is normal. The hospital is at a loss to explain the low hemo and loss of performance (his avg race heartrate at threshold has also increased since May) we are in an area where Lyme's is prevelant and wondered if this could be a cause?

I am 25 yrs old male and have masturbated against a pillow

Hi, I am 25 yrs old male and have masturbated against a pillow since I was a small child addiction. I am very fit and healthy but cannot maintain a proper ercection for women and have been with many but nothing ever worked out as a result. I have a high sex drive all the time so this is depressing for me. I am very active and spontaneous so I hate have tried and hate taking Viagra and other drugs, they give me flushed face and lips and other side effects that are turn off plus don't always work properly. I have heard that if you refrain from masturbation from 90 days it reboots your system, so does that mean if you masturbate again you have to start all over again? what if your partner gives you a handjob?I have started refraining for about five days now and my morning erections seem to be getting stronger. I just want to be able to have all positions of good sex, hold an erection in the shower, etc.
