Hi I'm 9 days late but I am also breastfeeding my one year old. At 7 days late I got a negative test but I have nausea and frequent urination with no uti. Today I noticed a very scarce light brown color on my underwear. Would this be my late period or imp

Cannot tell yet: A person can only tell she HAD implantation spotting in hindsight, after confirming a pregnancy. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Reduce inflammation: Taking a zinc supplement 25-50 mg/day, vitamin D3 10k IU/day and a good probiotic daily help to reduce inflammation and boost immunity.

Bad gas/urination/anemia for over 2 years. Endoscopy/colonoscopy clean. Was told stress. Now I have a late period. Could it be a UTI or bad thyroid?

Bad gas/urination/anemia for over 2 years. Endoscopy/colonoscopy clean. Was told stress. Now I have a late period. Could it be a UTI or bad thyroid?

Seemingly unrelated: I'm not sure what the urination problem is, but "bad gas" is usually dietary related and anemia in a young woman such as yourself is often due to excessive menstrual bleeding. Stress may contribute to digestive issues and a late period. If you are having painful or frequent urination, then be checked for a UTI. You should be taking iron supplements; with late period check for pregnancy. Good wishes ...Read more

Had flu and UTI. Taking antibiotic and lots of water. Can this decrease my hemoglobin from 11.2 to 10.3 I had heavy period between the two tests?

Had flu and UTI. Taking antibiotic and lots of water. Can this decrease my hemoglobin from 11.2 to 10.3 I had heavy period between the two tests?

Heavy period: Most likely your heavy period is the explanation of your anemia-rather than your antibiotics. Yes, sometimes, people can have drug reaction that causes destruction of the red blood cell etc. However, iron deficiency anemia as the result of your heavy period is most likely the reason of your anemia. I encourage you to go to see your primary doctor and get some evaluation on the anemia. ...Read more

Late period, negative pregnancy test, UTI, upper abdominal pain+upper left pain, nausea,vomiting, pain worse after eating. Right flank pain. Help?!

Gallbladder: You are very young and I don't have the benefit of seeing and examining you in person.

Worried about my urine color. Light green. I am taking Zoloft pill to start my period & xanax (alprazolam). No symptoms of uti. Just finished anti biotics 4 uti?

Hard to say: But I would ask the gynecologist who is prescribing for you. Haven't heard of this with either zoloft or xanax, (alprazolam) but green food colorings that are used in some pills could do this, or it could be from certain foods, like brocolli and asparagus. Very rarely, excessive bile in the urine, from some form of gallbladder or liver problems could do this. Your doctor can do an urinalysis to check it out. ...Read more
