Can do a preg. Test: If a regular normal period comes next week when expected, then there is no pregnancy. If the period doesn't come (is several days or a week late), one can do a pregnancy test. A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result by 1 week after missing a period or 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred). ...Read more

Adjustment period: It can take 3 months, and sometimes more, for your period to regulate itself and be more "normal, " which means predictable length of bleeding, how much you bleed, and when you will bleed.

I: I wanted to start by reassuring you that hyperthyroidism is very treatable! The first step will be for your endocrinologist to determine the underlying cause of your hyperthyroidism. There are 3 main causes of hyperthyroidism: graves' disease, nodular goiter, or thyroiditis. The way to determine the type of hyperthyroidism you have is by checking a thyroid scan. Sometimes an additional blood test (called "tsi" -- looking for a specific type of thyroid antibody) can be helpful as well. There is a medication that can treat your hyperthyroidism that is well tolerated and generally considered to be safe when trying to conceive. Once your thyroid levels have normalized, you will have normal fertility so do not worry. It is very important for your health and the health of the baby to have normal thyroid levels when you conceive and during your pregnancy so you do want to be monitored carefully in the upcoming months. This is very treatable and would expect you'll do beautifully with appropriate therapy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Having sex?: If you are having sex then there is always a chance you can be pregnant. Take a pregnancy test; there is no reason to guess. The sooner you know, the sooner you can work through your decision process... if an abortion is your choice, I implore you you contact your physician to help you in arranging a medical abortion (your safety is important!) ...Read more

At 54 my periods are irregular and scanty. Have been diagnosed in past with adenomyosis. Now have obstructed bladder and really don't want hysterectomy?

Should get hyst: Adenomyosis is when the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscle layer of the uterus, which can lead to very painful and heavy periods. However, as your periods are irregular and scanty, no need for hysterectomy due to adenomyosis. But if bladder is obstructed and you are unable to urinate or completely empty your bladder, this can lead to serious infections. ...Read more
