Improved by now: Your symptoms should be significantly improved or gone by now. If not then get back to your doctor for further followup and care. It may be possible that the antibiotics were not effective this time around and if you truly have an infection, then a different antibiotic may be needed. Ask your doctor to culture the bacteria in your urine to find out which antibiotics are most effective. ...Read more

Trying to conceive. Period started 4 days early with no cramping (Which are usually unbearable). Now 4th day into period unbearable cramps begin. Why?

Not sure why you: have such terrible cramps, but if you had pregnancy symptoms before, you may be having a miscarriage. There is very little distinction between miscarriage and menstrual pain except for the level of pain and timing as well as degree of bleeding. I would go get checked out by healthcare provider ASAP. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Heavy bleeding after taking hcg for 23 days in efforts to lose weight Is bleeding normal after ending program?

Heavy bleeding after taking hcg for 23 days in efforts to lose weight 
Is bleeding normal after ending program?

No.: The HCG diet has never actually been proven to be beneficial (anyone will lose weight on 800 cal diet!) and as an endocrinologist I do not believe in it even if it helps weight loss. It is very similar to a hormone called LH and causes changes in progesterone and estrogen. Bleeding after can happen if there was a thickened endometrial lining. Get pregnancy test if possible and see your Gyn. ...Read more

Spotted 5 days before placebo lasted 8 days then stopped.then last day of placebo started again with cramps and severe diarrhea. What is issue?

It sounds like: your BC pill needs changing ..to a pill with a bit higher hormonal level(s)...the diarrhea is probably a SEPARATE issue and is most likely viral! BTW If this happened just once....probably should try another full cycle before changing your medication ! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

That : That is abnormal. Please be sure your pap smear is up to date and you may need an endometrial biopsy. I am concerned also that you are 55 and still on the pill, please ask your doctor because oral contraception increases cardiovascular risk after age 50. You could have fibroids causing your bleeding as well, your doctor can usually feel those on examination. Please see your gynecologist for a complete evaluation. ...Read more

Trying to conceive after fibroid removal and course of Zoladex (goserelin) implant - heavy and painful periods still, 4 months after treatment?

Trying to conceive after fibroid removal and course of Zoladex (goserelin) implant - heavy and painful periods still, 4 months after treatment?

Normal will return: Hello, As you know Zoladex (goserelin) suppresses the hormones that the ovary produces. Now that the course of suppression is over, the ovaries will begin to cycle. The brain/ovary/uterus system is very complex and it could take a little time for you to cycle perfectly. Also consider that you have had pelvic surgery which represents a stress to all systems especially the reproductive system. ...Read more

Exp. hypogastric pain for the last 2-3 years. It seems to start approx. 10 days before my period and continues until my period starts. Worse w/ food. ?

Exp. hypogastric pain for the last 2-3 years. It seems to start approx. 10 days before my period and continues until my period starts. Worse w/ food. ?

Interestingly, the: timing of your pain coincides with increasing levels of progesterone that occur after ovulation. One of the effects of progesterone is slowing down the peristalsis of the digestive tract. Food may stay in the stomach longer or reflux back up into the esophagus and gas may build up in the intestines. If you can eliminate foods that aggravate your symptoms, it may help. Antacids may also. ...Read more

20 yo f w/ right lower quandrant pain after first time being intimate via rectal. paint started the following morning, less than 12 hrs after intimacy?

RLQ pain: Anal intercourse can local problems like bleeding and rectal pain but it is very unlikely to cause pain in the abdominal right lower quadrant.

Have you moved your bowels yet? If the pain worsens you should see a physician. ...Read more
