I am 62 years old; just had a physical in January, all was fine then. I now in the last couple of months have had 2 times when after intercourse there was some burning and also a little blood, It didn't continue, just urinated, wiped a little blood with the wipe and then no more. No UTI symptoms. It is slightly painful when we have intercourse we use a lubricant. My last Pap smear was 2 years ago and was fine, some atrophic changes noted. I am worried about cancer?

I was diagnosed with placenta previa at 20 weeks pregnant.

I was diagnosed with placenta previa at 20 weeks pregnant. My perinatoligist said I needed to have the placenta 2.5 cm from the cervix. My regular OB says above 3 cm. I am now in between at 2.8 cm at almost 31 weeks. I have not had any major bleeding events. Is it safe for me and my husband to resume sexual activity, or do we need to wait for it to move up a little more?JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: I'm not sure what you mean.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I am on low-dose aspirin, because of a preeclampsia risk, but that's the only thing I can think of.

I have suffered with a constant yeast infection since 2011 &

Hello. I have suffered with a constant yeast infection since 2011 & reoccurring before that. Since 2011 I've also had inexplicable and uncontrollable weight gain, dietary allergies develop and severe pain with urination as well as vaginal pain with inserting tampons. I have been to several doctors who have told me they have done all the tests and that nothing is wrong . That is obviously untrue. I have tried Diflucan on and off for years , it used to work a bit, now it doesn't at all. I've tried all the natural remedies that are sold in stores, from pills to creams. I've tried other creams given to me by doctors , as well as otc medications. Most recently, I did a Monistat Micronazole (sorry for the spelling) one day . It burned , but nothing out of the ordinary for me, however it didn't begin to feel better at all so I douched with some hydrogen peroxide in water, small amount . A bunch of blood and tissue came out along with the leftover medicine. This hasn't happened before. Then I mixed some coconut oil , a few drops of tea tree oil and a few drops of oregano oil , (way more coconut than the others ) & tried to put it on a tampon but it was so raw I couldn't push it in so I just squeezed the dropper up there and put on a pantiliner. It seemed to immediately relieve the itching part of the problem. I did this yesterday morning and last night. This morning I awoke to vaginal bleeding and cramping , I thought it was my period but now I'm not so sure. I'm really scared and I don't know what to do. Please help.JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: YesJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No
