I am experiencing leaking from my vagina about every 10

Customer Question
minutes and soaking through pads...
I am experiencing leaking from my vagina about every 10 minutes and soaking through pads quickly. I have experienced this last month 30 days ago. My doctor said it was a symptom of ovulation...but boy is it annoying! I am 47, got pregnant unexpectedly a few months ago, and this started just about a month after the DNC that I chose to have. It is kind of an uncomfortable feeling in that area and then lots of leaking. It lasted about 24 hours last month and it's not as severe this time around...but still soaking through pads after about 20hours now. The last time this happened I called the doctor and she suggested I take advil. That helped a little to relieve the uncomfortable feeling. I am wondering if there is anything I can do about this new "friend" that seems to be visiting me once a month. I am open to seeing a hormone expert if needed. I suppose my hormones are out of wack a bit since I am getting older (near pre metipuas and did recently get pregnant. Please let me know if there are any suggestions for lessening the leakage...it's very embarrassing!

Hi. This definitely sounds like a hormonal problem and it is likely premenopausal. You need to have your estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, FSH and LH levels checked for that and if this is that much of a problem for you hormone replacement therapy for a few months--I prefer bioidentical creams--should stop the problem

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
