I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood

Hello, I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood mixed in with it. I am 46 and about a year and a half ago had surgery and removal of my left ovary , due to "out of the blue" softball sized cysts and uterine fibroids. This is a bit different for me and I have been bleeding for the past three weeks and now this in the last 24 hours. I am also very anemic and feeling a bit woozy from the flow from the last couple of weeks. It had been a couple of months since last somewhat regular period . I have not had any real regular periods since the surgery and issue . I am not sure if this is cause for concern right now and if I need to go to the doctor ?I am currently taking iron tabs 27 mg per day , magnesium, and vitamin c . That is all maybe a Tylenol or two but try to not take any if possible.Thank youJA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?Customer: A little pain yes . Through lower pelvic area and back as well.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: They did a biopsy prior to the surgery last Jan. 2015 . Had to have a blood transfusion. other than that the surgery and prior issue literally came out of nowhere. It was sudden and all took place over the course of three months. Prior to this was very healthy played sports, I am no longer as active but do walk and do yoga . Nothing like before because of a knee injury.

I am a 31 yr old woman. I have 1 child only.been pregnant 1

I am a 31 yr old woman. I have 1 child only.been pregnant 1 time. Last year, i had my first abnormal pap smear. The primary care doctor said it was HPV positive and told me not to worry about it and to come back in 6 months to see if the infection clears on its own. I asked for an ob gyn. The ob gyn did a colposcopy and the results were normal. I had a follow up pap smear in January. That pap smear was normal as well. All during this my periods were normal and coming on every month like usual until the month of April came. For some reason i didnt get a period. I got my period in may but it only lasted 3 days and i started to get a lot of brownish stringy uscharge after wards for atleast three weeks. I got my period for june but it was extremely heavy (like i was using atleast 6 or 7 super plus absorbency tampons a day) the period wasnt painful but it bothered me because of the "freshness" of the blood and how bright it was and the amount. I visited the ob gyn again. He looked at my cervix and said the cervix looked ok to him. He prescribed me some birth control pills call norinyl and told me to take 3 pills for three days, 2 pills for 3 days and 1 pill everyday thereafter. It stopped the bleeding but once i got to the 1 pill a day regime, i got a little bit of brown discharge again but it went away. I had sex last week, and since that encounter, i started to get more of the brown discharge but it is more drier and has a little blood in it. I am still taking the birth control pills as prescribed and i am supposed to have an ultrasound next week. I was scared that this could be cancer or uterine fibroids or something but the doctor doesnt think its that. The doctor did all the blood tests, i am not pregnant nor do i have any stds. What could be going on with this brown discharge thing? And could the fact that it went away and came back after sex mean that i maybe having implantation bleeding?

I had a girl i slept with on march 30th and now she is

I had a girl i slept with on march 30th and now she is pregnant. She also slept with a few other people after me. She had an ultrasound on june 7th,2016 and the baby CRL measured to be 2.03cm, how far along is she and how accurate is the measurementas it relates to gestational age?Is the ultrasound more accurate than the last missed period because there are more guys involved than one? what is the margin of error here in days? If she conceived by me march 30th that would put her at gestational age at 11.6 weeks on june 7th during her first ultrasound, instead she got a CRL measurement of 2.03cm and was told she was 8 weeks 5 days along. Can there be that much error in the ultrasound if sperm lives 5 days that i could be the father? she did take plan b the day after and she admitted sleeping with two guys after me unprotected.SO MY SPERM DIED APRIL 4TH, SAY SHE CONCEIVED APRIL 19TH, BECAUSE THE FIRST DAY OF HER LAST PERIOD WAS APRIL 5TH. THUS, THIS MEANS WITH THE PLUS MINUS OF 7 DAYS of errror ON THE ULTRASOUND THIS WOULD DATE THE CONCEPTION WINDOW TO APRIL 12TH TO APRIL 26TH, MY SPERM DIED ON APRIL 4-5TH. is THERE STILL any POSSIBILITY the child is mine?can the ultrasound at 8 weeks be off by two weeks or would there be a clear distinction on CRL. LASTLY, THERE WOULD BE A CLEAR DISTINCTION BETWEEN WEEK 8.5 AND WEEK 11 ON ULTRASOUND correct?Do all babies grow at the same rate in the first trimester and if there is a three week gestational age differenceCan you help me through this?assuming the sperm lives 5 days mine died on april 4th.

Dr.Phil. I'm a female, 41 yrs old. A few weeks ago, I had

Hi Dr.Phil. I'm a female, 41 yrs old. A few weeks ago, I had a bad cold and because I was very sick, my period was delayed by 2 weeks and it was a very heavy period. The ovulation for the next cycle was very painful and had 1/2 pea size lump in my right armpit. My right breast was also very painful. I had pain from the right breast to the right armpit. The pain in the right breast went away when I got my period, which was on time (28 days), but the little lump in the right armpit has changed shape and feels like it's oval shaped. The lump is still a little painful and I can also feel 2 hard lines that come from the lump towards the right arm. Those lines are painful when I raise my arm, but if I keep my arm raised, the pain seems to slowly go away and the lines don't feel as hard to the touch either. The pain goes away if I massage the armpit and breast and surrounding area or do a physical activity.Thank you.

My question is concerning vaginal birth after a myomectomy.

Hi,My question is concerning vaginal birth after a myomectomy. I had a myomectomy in April 2013. I got pregnant in July 2015 through IVF. I am now 37 weeks pregnant. All the doctors I've seen tell me that I will have to have a c-section. But I'm not too eager to have major surgery again. So I wanted to know if a vaginal birth is at all possible and what are the chances of my uterus rupturing? The last Doctor I saw also said that the c-section was supposed to be scheduled since last week and that I should schedule one asap. So I also wanted to know what would happen if I don't schedule one and wait until I go into labor or my water breaks?Thanks in advance for your answer.
