Expired Implanon On Arm And Bleeding Does This Mean The Implant Is Running Out Of The Horomone
Is it normal to come on your period 3 times in 3 weeks, the last of which is odourless and has a cum like consistency? Only bleeding on the left side?
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more
What would cause a heavy period like flow after removal of Mirena IUD? Was under the understanding that it kept lining thin.
Age 60 & heavy flow: If indeed you are 60 years of age. removing the Mirena IUD was sorely needed. Moreover, heavy bleeding post Mirena at any age raises the question of abnormal endometrial proliferation. It would be a good idea for your GYN MD to take an endometrial sampling (biopsy) to rule out endometrial hyperplasia which can lead to endometrial/uterine cancer. ...Read more

What can cause dark drown vaginal blood? After using the bathroom there is a dark colored blood on the tissue, my back hurts on the mid-lower right side. What can be the cause of this? Sn… this has been going on for about a week, there isn't any blood in
This : This could be the start of your period (coming a little early), often times the blood at the beginning and end of the cycle for that matter can be brown in color. The fact that your back hurts and abdomen hurts as well may mean that you are dealing with a urine or even kidney infection. If your symptoms are still present, please see your doctor right away for examination, testing and treatment as deemed necessary. Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more
My mirena (levonorgestrel) iud runs out on the 16th of this month is there a time frame before it stops working and how long do I have to get it replaced?
Replace immediately: This really depends on many factors, such as where you are in your menstrual cycle. If you've had Mirena (levonorgestrel) in for 5 years I recommend that you get it replaced immediately since it will be less effective / potent. If you cannot get it replaced, use a backup method (condom) as a precaution. The reason I say this is because patients can become pregnant almost immediately after getting Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.
The : The "sack of the baby" is likely the amnion, which encases the amniotic fluid. Having a "low" sack is not very common or a recognized complication in pregnancy. It is possible to have the pregnancy be in an abnormal location (like the cervix, which would be really low!), but that doesn't seem to be the case here. You can find answers to other pregnancy questions on our website: uwmedicine.Org\obstetrics. ...Read more

I have an ulcer on the inside of my mouth, up by where my teeth meet the wall of the mouth due to overdoing it on oral sex with a male is this normal?
Of course, abnormal: Your knowing overdone oral sex should warn you of not repeating it. If the ulcer is painless, go to be checked so to assure not an early syphilitic ulcer. Why did you do oral sex, for personal gratification & fantasy or to please him under submission? No matter how sweet oral sex or its political correctness can be, oral sex is not sanitary; doing it naturally comes with its consequence; reality.. ...Read more
