Hi myself ayesha . I am 22 years old ... I am having irregular periods since 5 years . Last year I consult with doc so she told me that I have pcod?
Hello its ayesha. In october 2014 some acne grew on my forehead and left and right cheek. Now I am using cosmin gel it is effecting but very slowly??
Ideally: Your skin should be reassessed at most several months(like on the order 12 weeks). Remember, there can be great variation in the nature of patients response(time wise), so do respond very quickly and some less so. If you've been using this regimen since October 2014, then it sounds like it's time to reassess your acne management regimen. ...Read more
Hi I am ayesha, I had a dnc 1 year ago, but still I have milky discharge with breast pain. Can it be dangerous for conceiving next pregnancy?
See doctor: It's not normal to have discharge from breast if that's what you are referring to. If you're referring to milky discharge from vagina, then that's normal and likely not dangerous at all for conceiving for next pregnancy. Breast pain can be hormonal and cyclical, but should be discussed with a doctor, in addition to having a clinical breast exam to make sure no lump/mass. ...Read more
My bowels stuck to my stomache bladder aretha intestine ovaries through endometriosis... Should I have the op to separate with my ovaries still intact?
How do you know: Unless you have had surgery to look at that you might think there is a lot of scarring but you don't know until you go in. You need to plan that out from a fertility standpoint and surgical standpoint. So you need to coordinate care with a fertility specialist who operates a lot and a general surgeon and possible a urologist if you have reason to suspect that much scar tissue. ...Read more
Dad 65 yrsof age.has cancer around prostate and a Lil touchng rectum. Has to do hormonal and radiation treatmnt. What's the survval rate? Surgry Better?
Depends on a few other factors such as how malignant appearing the cells. Age under 65 tends to be more aggressive. Invasion of other organs is a bad prognostic sign.
Without wide spread and bone metastases, the longevity is good, and a bit tricky to estimate its effect compared to NOT having it.

There is a new treatment for uterine fibroids called acessa. Is this procedure done somewhere in Canada??
There is a new treatment for fibroids called acessa. I was hoping I coul have it done in Canada? I also have a 9 cm cyst on my right ovary and 5 cm on the left. Wondering if that is treatable the same way? :)
Not the same: Accessa sort of liquifies uterine fibroids through thermal ablation. This is not an appropriate treatment for ovarian cysts. It is a newer technology for fibroids with a somewhat mixed clinical results. Widespread adoption has not yet occurred but there are Gyn surgeons who really like it. ...Read more

Hi, hysteroscopy in Feb, then OCPs to regulate cycle. Still, heavy bleeding. Doc wants me to consider Acessa. Feedback on acessa from GYNs?
I have endometriosis and fibroid tumors (occasionally ovarian cysts). OB recommend hysterectomy. Read about Acessa. Wondering: procedure any good?
Perhaps not for you: Acessa is a novel, fairly good and very promising procedure for treating uterine fibroids and preserve the uterus. Its success depends often on the size, location and number of fibroids in a uterus. It is not a treatment for endometriosis. Hysterectomy laparoscopic, transabdominal or transvaginal at this point in your life may not be a bad recommendation, particularly if you are very symptomatic ...Read more
