Abnormal Cells In The Uterus
Vaginal bleeding: This can be the result of conditions anywhere in the female genital tract, most commonly in the uterus, and the part of the uterus extending into the vagina (cervix). This can be due to infection, tumor, or other inflammatory conditions. You need to see a gynecologist and have this evaluated and treated aggressively soon. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. ...Read more
Can not having a period for a year cause abnormal cells in the uterus Should I ask for a smear test? I'm only 17 years old.
Very unlikely at 17: The possibility that "not having a period for a year would cause abnormal cells in your uterus at age 17" is quite small/and may be so minimal and so remote as to be negligible unless you are markedly overweight, obese exposed to unopposed estrogens or perhaps have a genetic predisposition to uterine, breast, ovarian or colon cancers. ...Read more
Can not having a period for a year cause abnormal cells in the uterus? Smear test? 17 years old, have PCOS& family history of cancers.
Not related: Pap smears are done to prevent cervical cancer. The idea is to detect abnormalities long before cancer occurs. Cervical cancer is caused by the sexually transmitted HPV virus so it is not something based on family history. It is also not related to PCOS. Typically the first pap is done after age 21. Your obgyn can help you with PCOS and give you options for cycle regulation ...Read more
Most likely...: The most likely answer is that you just need to have the pap repeated. When your doctor got the sample, not enough cells may have transferred from your cervix to the brush for the lab to look at. Having the pap repeated usually resolves the issue. ...Read more

U/S findings: uterus had a normal size 36mm x 27mn x 31mm-GP refused IUD mid-insertion because too small. 23, no kids, irregular heavy period history?
37 yrs old never been pregnant suffering from menorrhagia irregular mens. U/s done; uterus: avf, average in size. Endometrial thickness 14mm, ?
Ovulation problem: It is most likely that you are not ovulating. Your ovaries will still make estrogen, so your uterine ling will grow and thicken. But with no ovulation your periods will be very irregular and, of course, you won't get pregnant. Get advice from a fertility doctor. There is a drug, clomiphene, which may help you ovulate and become pregnant - if this is your desire. ...Read more
A year post mirena (levonorgestrel) removal. Irregular 42-103 days. Hormone levels, thyroid & u/s of uterus & ovaries. All okay. So why am I not cycling regularly?
Irregular menses: 31 year old female with irregular periods since your Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD was removed about a year ago. You have already evaluated some of the causes of irregular periods. There are other causes too which include weight changes, stress, level of exercise. Also whatever your periods were like before the IUD was placed will influence how they are after it was removed. ...Read more
Conception: Sperm enter vagina in semen & then pass thru cervix, pass thru uterus into fallopian tube containing ovum or egg after ovulation. 1 sperm pierces thru membrane covering ovum & nucleus of sperm fuses with nucleus of ovum. This fertilized ovum now divides from 1 cell to 2 then 4 & so on. Now an embryo, transfers to body of uterus. Stem cells, within embryo divide, now a fetus develop various tissues ...Read more
Had a recent lapro hysterectomy. Received a diagnosis of "adenomysis with complex atypical hyperplasia" for sometime removed away from uterus --what is this?
Glad it's out: Adenomyosis doesn't usually mean anything, but atypical hyperplasia is something I'm glad to know you don't have to worry about any more. With your uterus gone, the atypical hyperplasia can't progress to malignancy, as it's somewhat prone to do. Take a deep breath and be thankful. Best wishes. ...Read more
I just had d&c a week ago they said not to have sex for 2 weeks well I had sex after 4 days is this going to cause any problems the procedure was because they found precancer cells in my uterus
You are more prone to an infection after a D&C if you have sex. Also having sex can interrupt the healing process. As of now all you can do is monitor for signs of infection; this includes fever, foul vaginal discharge, pelvic or abdominal pain. If any of these things are present see your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more
No.: Progesterone is personally my favorite hormone in that there is a lesser risk for blood clots, and it helps smoothen and thin out your endometrial lining so that it may perhaps help improve with the heavy bleeding you may be experiencing. The only way to confirm (with 100% confidence) adenomyosis by the way is after a hysterectomy (removal of uterus). Mri/other imaging tests may only suggest it. ...Read more
If precancerous cells are found in uterus on biopsy will you need full hysterectomy and also radiation or chemo?
Whenever I go to the gyno, they have a hard time finding my uterus. How will this abnormal placement affect conception or pregnancy?
Highly doubt it: Unless you have a true congenital abnormality (too complex for this online format, sorry) your uterus is probably fine. Some uteri and cervices are just easier to get to than others. ...Read more

Hello. I had a pelvic ultrasound and these were the results: 10.2 cm CC x 4.9 cm AP x 7.5 cm transverse uterus. Are these results abnormal?
Probably WNL results: If these sonographic measurements were obtained by a skilled certified Gyn sonographer, they are probably considered within normal limits (WNL) or in the upper limits of normal for a woman who is 61 and postmenopausal. What is missing and much more important is the measurements of the "thickness of the endometrium". ...Read more
Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?
Cells change gradual: Ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance. ...Read more

I have a heart shaped uterus, can this cause irregular bleedings? I'm on the pill and this happens like 2 times a year
Shouldn't be: A bicornuate uterus (heart shaped) can have a septum or even a side of the uterus that doesn't connect to the cervix. If this were the case, you'd have painful cycles more often +/- abnormal bleeding. With your symptoms, I doubt the shape has anything to do with it. Continue the ocps and occasional break-through bleeding is to be expected. Twice a year is not bad. ...Read more
