Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I started my period on march 9th of this year and ain't had one since! Do I need to go to the gynecologist or the obgyn?

Irregular periods: Assuming you aren't pregnant (have you taken a test?), the most likely explanation for irregular or absent periods is that you aren't ovulating regularly. There can be a number of reasons for this and I would recommend you see your ob/gyn for an ultrasound and blood work. ...Read more

Can you advise me on going to the gynecologist while on my period?

Can you advise me on going to the gynecologist while on my period?

Call the office...: It depends on why you are going. A lot can be accomplished without an exam. In serious situations, it is sometimes necessary to do an exam in spite of an ongoing period. If the purpose of the visit is an exam and you are bleeding more than just some spotting, you might consider rescheduling. Call the office for guidance in your situation. Best wishes! ...Read more

Amenorrhea: After no period for 3 months, a pregnancy test would certainly be positive if you were actually pregnant, so I think you can believe the result from your appointment. The Gynecologist will consider other causes of missing periods (being too thin, hormone imbalance, etc), do an exam, perhaps do an ultrasound. Good luck! ...Read more

Follow up visit: It sounds like you sonogram showed polycystic ovarian syndrome which is the most common cause of irregular periods. The doctor who did the sonogram and has the blood test will have more information though to be able to explain your specific case. Consider a follow up visit and a discussion of options to regulate the cycles. Birth control pills is often useful in these cases to regulate periods ...Read more

Possibly: It would be best if you weren't on your period, but if it is on the light side, shouldn't be a problem. Heavy bleeding could be a problem, but if you're bleeding non stop no a whole lot you can do. You need to see the doctor ...Read more

I missed my period last month went to the gynecologist and she told me it's from the stress, before my period 10 days I'm experiencing brown discharge?

Brown = old blood: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

Dysfunctional: Uterine bleeding is what u have and you need to see a GYN specialist ASAP. You will need a pelvic ultrasound along with blood tests to see if you have a secondary condition that is causing you to have vaginal bleeding. At least assuming that the bleeding is from there. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Pregnancy Test: If you have missed your period, now is a good time to take a pregnancy test. If it is negative and you still have not had your period, take another test a couple of days later. It is possible that you are pregnant. It is also possible that you are just experiencing a longer cycle this month. ...Read more

I'm 17 & I've never met with a gynecologist, I'm not sexually active. I'm prone to having UTIs and my period has been acting up could it be a cause?

I'm 17 & I've never met with a gynecologist, I'm not sexually active. I'm prone to having UTIs and my period has been acting up could it be a cause?

No: UTIs won't generally cause your periods to act up. In order to suggest things that might cause this we would need to know more about what you mean by acting up. It would be a good idea to start by discussing this with whom ever has been treating the UTIs and they could get a full history and give you a better idea about what might be going on. Hope this helps. ...Read more

"last month my gynecologist discovered an ovarian cyst and expecting my period in days. What shall I take as a medicine. Because am planning pregnant?

Ovarian cysts: Ovarian cysts are pretty common and are usually found by "accident". One way to treat them would be oral contraceptives. However you are planning on getting pregnant so this is not an option for you. Usually we recommend a watchful waiting approach, and would only intervene if the cysts were causing issues like pain.
Hope that this was helpful. ...Read more

See your family doc: Start with seeing your family doctor or internist as they are able to handle most of your complaints. Early menopause, if that is in fact the problem here, has certain health ramifications which your doctor can discuss with you. A gynecologist can also address these problems. The pain in your back and lower stomach may or may not be related and your doctor has to sort this out for you. ...Read more
