Just got home from doctor. She said I have Rh isoimmunization. Looked it up online and now more confused that ever. Can you explain what it means to have it?
Pregnancy concerns: The rh factor is found on the red blood cells of 85% of people in america, they are rh positive. You would be rh negative, because you do not have the rh factor on your red blood cells and because of that you have developed an antibody against the rh factor.

Unlikely: It is unlikely the two are related. Menstrual cramps are usually caused by contractions of the uterus. Unless you damaged your uterus two years ago it is unlikely that you would experience worsening symptoms today.

What would cause the sudden appearance of a large vein running from my belly button to just under breast area in the mid torso appeared today no trama to the body
There : There is a structure called the umbilical vein that is left over from fetal life (in the uterus) that can open back up in adults who have certain types of liver disease. When this happens, it can cause large veins on the abdominal wall like you've described. Usually, this happens slowly over a long period, but there are exceptions. One can also develop enlarged veins on the chest or abdomen if there are blockages in the normal venous channels. This, in turn, can be the result of blood clots or structures than press on the normal veins and close them. It would probably be a good idea for you to see a doctor about this, especially if you have a history of liver disease, blood clots, or the use of oral contraceptives (which can cause blood clots). You may need some blood tests and/or ultrasound studies of the abdomen and/or legs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
