I used nuvaring continuously for 3 months. Month 1 and 2 i bled 14 days each. Now i bleed during sex. I take ring out for sex bc of pain. What to do?

Answer from urologist please.9 Hydrocele abt 3x than other teste.  urologist said to leave it, bc no pain, and long recvry. Other said it gets bigger?

Small hydrocele: Most hydroceles are quite benign & yours is only 3x size of other testis so it is not very big. Urologist gave good advice providing hydrocele isn't causing much discomfort. It may enlarge in which case it can be corrected surgically. So my advice, like that of the excellent urologist already consulted, is to wait & see. ...Read more

Examination bt yr MD: Shoulder/neck pain is unlikely related to your breast unless there is any mass in it. Have your doctor examine your breast. If there is any mass/growth felt there, you may need a biopsy done. Also your breast calcifications concern me....That is usually an indication for a biopsy. If the breasts are dense, a MRI of breast is more valuable than a mammogram to check for a small breast cancer ...Read more

Call your PCP: your symptoms are not typical especially if this is the first time you have had them. It is also possible that the painkiller isn't effective for your symptoms.

Thrush: A sore throat with white spots and sores on your gums sounds like thrush. Blood tests can rule out some but not all STDs. A specific test is necessary to rulr out chlamydia and gonorrhea. The other possibility is a viral infection. You need to discuss these possibilities with the person who you have been seeing to know which is going on in your case. Hope this helps. ...Read more
