About

Bio

I was born and raised in Southern California and after practicing for 19 years in St. Louis, Missouri, I am returning to California. I am married and we have a blended family with 7 children. I enjoy the outdoors. Some hobbies include bicycling, running and cooking. I also believe in the importance of exercise.

First time?: If this was the first and only time your cycle has been different, then I would monitor it. However, a number of other factors based on your medical history may suggest getting an ultrasound and evaluation by your doctor sooner. If the bleeding pattern continues and your are using Nuvaring correctly, I would recommend being seen sooner.

YES: pregnancy is a possibility as is the potential for certain STDs due to exchange of bodily fluids. Evaluation for pregnancy with pregnancy test for starters would be recommended as well as screening for sexually transmitted infections if concerned

Rest: You may be over doing and getting dehydrated and leading to the urinary tract symptoms. Your urine should almost be clear if you are hydrated. Also a urinary tract infection may have developed. Follow up with you OB ASAP.
