Hello I recently had my period it began on August 16th lasted 7 days. I had cramps a lot earlier in the month however my period came earlier than usual. I was under a lot of stress during that time. My period ended about eight days ago and I'm still having cramps and tender breasts. According to my menstrual calendar my ovulation started yesterday and the cramps have felt more painful between yesterday and today. Not sure if this is normal.
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'm 32 with one 3yr old and just wondering if it's normal to
Hello. I'm 32 with one 3yr old and just wondering if it's normal to feel cervix one or two inches from vaginal opening. I discovered this right before my period but never really noticed it before until recently. Seems to cause some lower back pain but could be due to period symptoms. Just wondering if this is all normal or if this could be related to something called a prolapsed uterus. Thanks
I am on amisulpride (solian) and lithium and have polycistic
I am on amisulpride (solian) and lithium and have polycistic ovaries and have never had a regular period since the age of 9. my progesterone levels are always high due to the Solian.My mother had a rare breast cancer at 32 after 4 pregnancies. We believe my family has the äshkenezie gene. At the age of 3, I had benign breast tumors but did not have surgery - they went away.when I was on the a high estrogen pill (diane) 12 years ago I had a continual period for 6 weeks.I have had vaginal bleeding since April 2016 which is very light and sometimes I don't know it is there. In the past 2 weeks I have had short heavy episodes which go away quickly and then it goes back to very light.My wwc have been high (up to 4 - 5 points above normal for the past 3 years) and since my first yearly blood test in February (10/02/16) they have halved without antibiotics and I had a chest and throat infection at the time and the comment from the lab was mild lymphopenia (test done 05/07/16) - Lymphocytes have gone from a regular 3.40 to.87 which is below the range.Over the last year I have had times where I urinate up to every half an hour but never have a Urinary tract infection. My bowels are erratic, quite often loose and come on very fast.I don't get any pain.No one has been able to explain why my white cells are high.Can you please help me with these symptoms and tell me what I should do. I haven't had a pap smear in about 2 years and am booked in next saturday.Many Thanks, Lara

I am a 71 yr old woman and I have been having some vaginal bleeding starting 2 days ago. There is no pain, but is enough that I have to wear a pad. I am leaving for a week's conference in Florida tomorrow. Can I wait until I get back to go to the doctor to get checked out?

My 86 y/o mom had vaginal bleeding last Saturday evening. I
My 86 y/o mom had vaginal bleeding last Saturday evening. I took her to the emergency room. They did blood work and a ultrasound. The ultrasound revealed that there is "something" in the upper region of her uterus but due to the amount of blood and "debris" they could not possitively identify the abnormality. They recommended followup with her GYN. We met with her GYN who recommended a D&C and biopsy. My mom takes Coumadin for Afib. At the time of her bleeding her coag number was 3.1 The ER Doctor told her to stop taking the coumadin and consult her Cardio MD. The GYN said she would not do the procedure without clearance from the Heart Doctor. We went to him. her coag number is ***** 2.0. He cleared her for the D&C but asked that it be performed withing the next 2-3 days so he could get her back on the Coumadin. My question is do you agree with this invasive procedure given her age and the fact that she has been taking this drug for years. Is it possible to biopsy without the D&C, what are the risks of infection, would she benefit from an second Ultrasound?
