Break Out On Breast
I have 9 pills left in my current birth control pack but I started spotting today. I'm also nauseous, breaking out & tender breasts what could it be?
Am I pregnant? I have took 4 test in one week and it all said not pregnant. But the systems say different. Cramps, head aches, face break outs, breast hurts, always eating, feeling sick all the times and to top it off clear liquids comes out my breast w
The symptoms you described can be pre-menstrual as well. However the breast discharge is not normal. You could be dealing with a hormonal imbalance (thyroid or prolactin issue). You should see your doctor for an evaluation and if you still have no had your menses at the time of the visit, a blood pregnancy test can be done which is definitive.
Good luck. ...Read more
Period is 5 days late, fingers are swollen, face is breaking out, breasts are sore, naseous & tired all the time. Neg. Hpt test at one day late?
Tinea = yeast: With skin problems and itching, the most likely problem is related to a yeast infection of the skin on the breast. Given that the breast is also a source of other inflammatory conditions related to underlying problems, it would be best to get in to your doctor for a breast exam. In the meantime, try applying some Hydrocortisone cream! ...Read more

There are 2 issues: first why you fell without any obvious cause. This needs thorough evaluation.

Both require more history and exam and additional investigation. See your PCP ...Read more

Androgens up: Your testosterone or adrenal hormones are elevated and you need to have a GYN MD determine why with testing. Abdominal and chin hairs grow only with the actions of natural or exogenous male hormones and your lack of breast development says that estrogens are present at very minimal levels. ...Read more

I'm going smtimes in solarium for 10 min with break then 15 min without wearing bra. How big is a chance of breast cancer?
The Nature of Cancer: What makes a tumor malignant is the potential to break away from its organ of origin and take up residence in another one. Some cancer cells are better than others at travelling; others have more of a tendency to travel the longer they have been untreated. If we really understood the "why" part, we would be that much closer to curing all cancer. ...Read more

I have like contraction pain and a push down to my vagina I'm breast feeding and I'm on my pill without break what can it be. Is it maybe pregnant?
Hi my 8month old baby has had a fever for 3 days. He had 5 diarrhea diapers on first day, 2 on second day and one today. He's temp reaches around 38, he does breast feed well and eats though, anything else I must do? Using empaped to break temp
Sounds improving: These are often simple gut viruses that can be managed at home. Breast milk is often the best therapy. The minimal temp can be ignored. I expect about 3 of these a year until they reach 5. Their primary risk is dehydration, which usually only appears if they cannot feed well enough to keep up. If peeing every 6-8 hrs the kid is doing fine. ...Read more
I had sex with my boyfriend in early feb. Used a condom&we made sure it didn't break. After I had some spotting for a while a couple days ago I started to get cramps, some hot flashes and my breasts are tender. We have had anal and oral sex since then. Can
Condoms are a good form of birth control and the best way to prevent the spread of disease, but they are not full-proof. In fact, after a year of sex with exclusive condom use, 15-20% of women will still become pregnant. If you are concerned you might be pregnant, then you should take a test.
You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Good luck! ...Read more

No breast tenderness but acne break, loss of appetite, nauseated feeling are these pregnancy symptoms?
No hx. About periods: A history of missing the last period in a woman with regular menstrual cycle is the key factor in determining, whether, she is pregnant or not. Presence of nausea, loss of appetite or a break of acne are not the diagnostic symptoms of pregnancy and they may or may not be present. The chances of pregnancy in a 49yo female is very small b/c menopause usually occurs b/w the ages of 45 to 55.Thanks. ...Read more
Age 41, on combined BC 10 ys, started new pack 24 h late aft. 7-d break (took 2 p on day 2), unprotected sex on missed day, cramps since that day, breast tenderness started on 10th day after intercourse, symptoms of preg so soon or I'm just paranoid?
Paranoid: Most likely, you are not pregnant. I would chalk these symptoms up to stress, virus, or something minor. There should be no issue with missing one day of pills. I'm not sure about the cramps nor breast tenderness, but suffice it to say: just wait for your next period to indicate your system has "reset." ...Read more
I had an implanon break in my arm a year ago since then, I've had hair loss, breast tenderness, severe acne and muscle aches is it from the implanon?
See a Doctor: Was the Implanon removed? If your implant was removed than your symptoms are not from Implanon. If your Implanon is still in place, please get it removed. Symptoms of acne may be related to Implanon. I have not heard of hair loss and muscle aches as a side effect of Implanon. So, please see a doctor. ...Read more
Breast augmentation: Surgery is the only "tried and true" way of accomplishing breast enlargement. Very subtle increases in breast size may be obtained with use of the brava system, but large series of long term results are currently lacking. Some plastic surgeons perform fat transfer surgery, though this is often a staged approach and, again, long term data are lacking. ...Read more
