My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive and last

Hi. So my boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive and last month we tracked my ovulation and had sex every day that i was ovulating. Im not suppose to start my period until this Friday but start this past Friday instead. It started very light so i thought i could be implantation bleeding but on the third day it became very heavy and painful. Today it still is painful and very heavy. I usually start my periods late never ever early. So im nervous something may be wrong. Can you help?JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?Customer: Yes pain anf i have periods monthly but they are usually anywhere from 2-7 days longer than a monthly cycleJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I had an abortion many years ago. I have one healthy child who is 12.

I have something goofy going on with my body. I am 41,

I have something goofy going on with my body. I am 41, healthy, and I have 3 children aged 21, 14, and 4. I have had no signs of perimenopause, but I have had endometriosis since my first period at age 12. I had a lap to confirm and remove endometriosis in 2006. I have very painful and heavy periods that last 4-5 days. I did have a fibroid on my early ultrasound with my 4 year old that quickly disappeared. I have suspected I have had another fibroid for the past year due to increased heavy bleeding. I have no history of mental illness. I use temping and checking my cervix and mucus to prevent pregnancy.On 8/17 I had sex, in which my baby- fevered bf (unknown to me at the time) took it upon himself to not pull out. Long story but I hadn't been paying attention to my cycle that month. I ovulated the next day. 10-12 days later my areolas got bigger and darker. I started feeling pregnant. Took a hpt and it was faint positive. On day 14, from ovulation, I started to spot for an hour ( I am not a spotter, ever.) I laid down and it stopped. The next day I started to bleed, bright red, and had sharp cramps on my sides in tge ovary area. Cramps lasted 1 day and bleeding lasted 2 days. Very abnormal for me and none of my endometriosis pain. I figured it was a chemical pregnancy and a bit of a relief since I'm 41 and not wanting to be pregnant.A week later, I'm feeling more pregnant. I took a test and it was negative. I figured my body needed more time to get normal. Meanwhile, my breasts have grown, and I no longer have those 2 empty sacks for boobs that were left to me after I quit breastfeeding 2 years ago. My aerolas are still huge, dark, and my nipples hurt. My belly is very bloated and keeps getting bigger. I had a flat stomach before all of this. I have had mild cramping this whole time, and I have serious food adversions. I get nauseous at random times throughout the day and night. I also have mild bouts of dizziness. My cervix has stayed soft and very high. Higher than it is in my normal cycles. I also have had a change in my cervical mucus. It is white and creamy and nothing like I ever get. I also get globs of thick snot here and there but it does not stetch like fertile cm. I took another test this morning and it is negative.I cannot see my ob/gyn for a couple of more weeks. I have an appt. If I'm not pregnant, can you offer suggestions as to what else I should be tested for? What else could cause this? Cancer runs on both sides of my family, and that does concern me. Either way something is whacky with my hormones, and I would like to find out why.

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.
