I did IUI 7days ago & have been reading that many women experience implantation bleeding & cramps.I only have sore breasts.Do most women experience it?

Implantation: Implantation of the fertilized egg occurs about seven days after ovulation or IUI . Not every implantation causes bleeding, but mild cramping may occur and you may have just ignored it. Your breasts are probably not sore yet because of pregnancy, but just due to the hormones made in the after ovulation phase of your cycle. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) x 3yrs. No prob. Last yr ovarian cysts, usually zero period, bleeding x4days now?Also bloated w no pain. Except men cramp. Why bloated? Mirena (levonorgestrel)?

Irregular periods: Normally people have little to no periods with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) but you can still have periods with it so it is not abnormal to have a period with it. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) can be in for 5 years. It is also possible that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) has come out make sure yours is still in by checking for the strings. And if you can feel the strings go into the doctor and have them look for the strings. ...Read more

Severe pain during period after endometrial ablation, even though I don't bleed. The cramps are worse than child birth, I don't have fibroids.?

Severe pain during period after endometrial ablation, even though I don't bleed.  The cramps are worse than child birth,  I don't have fibroids.?

Cervical stenosis: Sometimes the cervical opening will scar shut after ablation and not allow any bleeding to pass. As it builds up, the uterus will cramp to try and force it out and this can be very painful. See your doc for a sono. If this is the case, it can usually be relieved by passing a small instrument to open the cervix again. Good luck! ...Read more

OVARIAN CANCER? No period for 5 months now. Normal pelvic ct and transvaginal ultrasound in October 2016. No pain. Bloated sometimes. Not pregnant!!!!

OVARIAN CANCER? No period for 5 months now. Normal pelvic ct and transvaginal ultrasound in October 2016. No pain. Bloated sometimes. Not pregnant!!!!

Need to examine: It is very unlikely that you have ovarian cancer. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You have obviously consulted a doctor and she/he would be in a better position to advise. If you are even slightly overweight, it would help to lose weight. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Known to you (as I assumed you have already been evaluated and confirmed), dealing with the 5-mm stone should be the current priority of care. So, strain urine for retrieving stone if passed and continue dealing and coping with intractable CPPS (chronic pelvic painful syndrome). For further additional symptoms and healthy issues, work close with your available professionals timely. ...Read more
