30 yo FPMH: Nothing major...untreated Hashimoto's (T levels
30 yo FPMH: Nothing major...untreated Hashimoto's (T levels normal), benign neutropenia, anemiaI was on oral contraceptives for 10 years. I stopped taking them because my husband got a vasectomy. I did not menstruate after stopping the OC's for six months. A ob/gyn did an ultrasound and found nothing but a single cyst on my right ovary. He said I had PCOS (no other symptoms--not overweight, no hirsutism, etc.) and put me back on low-dose birth control. I've been on the birth control now for 2 months. I did menstruate during the sugar pill days, but I also am having heavy spotting (about a pantiliners' worth) between the sugar pill weeks. Is this normal? Will I "even out" and stop having mid cycle spotting? I work and am in school and it is very difficult to find time to go to appointments. Thank you.

I'm 35/F, 5'4, 146 lbs. I am a married mom of two. I have only one partner (my husband), and don't take birth control. My husband had a vasectomy in 2008. My first child was born in '02 vaginal delivery. My second child was born in '08 c-section delivery. I had normal pregnancies, & ultrasounds with them. I have genetic high BP, and take one 5 mg Bystolic pill once a day. I have always had normal pap exams, and my last one was in January of this year. My OB/GYN said everything looked good and that pap was normal. The only abnormality seen on exam was a nabothian cyst, which has been there a few years. I mentioned my below symptoms to her, but she was in a hurry and kind of brushed me off.My periods have always been like clock work, on time. However, the last several months they seem to be becoming irregular. They are starting a few days later than normal. I have had some light spotting before my period, and after it should be over. I have also noticed some clear/pink discharge that last about 2 days after my cycle should have ended. I've noticed some slight pain during intercourse with my husband a few times, and slight spotting after intercourse a time or two. I have an appt. with my OB/GYN this week to talk to her about it.My questions are, what could be causing my periods to become irregular at age 35, last longer, & cause spot bleeding after intercourse sometimes? Could these symptoms be cysts on ovaries, endometriosis, cancer, etc? My mom and sister have endometriosis, but I have never been told I have it. Should I have the nabothian cyst removed to make sure that's what it actually is?

I have been on ortho tri cyclen 6 years. I am supposed
I have been on ortho tri cyclen for over 6 years. I am supposed to start a new pack on Sunday, as I just had my period! I would like to adjust my period for this month, as I am vacationing for a week. What would be the best way to do this so I will not get breakthrough bleeding. I would normally get my period the 22nd. I am leaving the 22-29. Do I delay start my new pack 2 weeks (only on pill for skin, boyfriend had vasectomy) or do I take on Sunday for 2 weeks and stop to get my period early??
Dear Dr Love I'm so sorry to trouble you but something happened
Dear Dr LoveI'm so sorry to trouble you but something happened on Saturday which I'm worried sick about. A short while before my wife came home from night shift, I masturbated and climaxed on my stomach and some cum went on to my hand. When she eventually came to bed we started making out and fooling around and, although we didn't have intercourse I put my hand on her vaginal area (I don't think that the affected part of my hand touched the vaginal opening or the labia). I did have a vasectomy in 2012 followed by three consecutive sperm tests in 2013 after which the hospital told me I didn't need to come back for another test. By that I assume they meant that the vasectomy was successful and I was clear of sperm. However I do know that there is a one in 2000 chance (0.05%) of a vasectomy failing and because of this I'm worried sick that I might have gotten my wife pregnant. I know before we met, she'd had a miscarriage some years previous so if she was pregnant I'd have a hard time talking her into a termination. I've never wanted children which is why I had the vasectomy in the first place. I know sperm can be quite sneaky and yet I've heard stories that sperm doesn't live very long when exposed to air. I've rung the sexual health helpline up and they seem to think I'm worrying unnecessarily. I probably am but I can't stop. I've been going online trying to find some answers but I keep getting mixed messages some of which frighten the hell out of me. This has been on my mind since Saturday and am worried.Please help.Cameron Johnston
I have an IUD and the person I am seeing had a vasectomy a
I have an IUD and the person I am seeing had a vasectomy a couple of years ago. I read today that a man with a vasectomy got his wife pregnant. Mirena and Vasectomy, do I need to worry at all? I am little concerned after reading that story. Should I take a home test to be safe?
I am a 34 yr old woman with 2 successful pregnancies and noView more ob gyn questions
I am a 34 yr old woman with 2 successful pregnancies and no miscarriages. My husband is 45 and has had a vasectomy since 2004. We are both on our second marriage and would like to have a child together. We have been to a doctor to discuss a vasectomy reversal, and he gave us a 40% chance of the reversal working. Should we speak to a specialist in fertility? We don't want to have risk of a pregnancy with multiples. What should we do?Thanks!Carrie
