Changed withdrawal bleed on Orsythia, no blood. Only brown spotting and chunks of gray tissue. Normal endometrium or something to worry about? Thanks!

Changed withdrawal bleed on Orsythia, no blood. Only brown spotting and chunks of gray tissue. Normal endometrium or something to worry about? Thanks!

Normal: The low dose combined oral contraceptives like Orsythia in use today stimulate very little growth of the uterine lining and thus it is not uncommon for periods to become much shorter and lighter and not look like red blood but more brownish or blackish. This is common and the decrease in blood loss is one of the non-contraceptive benefits of pills - less anemia. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Left hand painful, radius bone to long and t lunate is black from no blood other bones are gray color what happens if I do not want surgury?

How do you know?: How do you know the color of the bones? Are you looking at and mri, because they are black and white, or are you actually looking at your wrist. If you are looking at your wrist and it is black from no blood flow you need surgery. That sounds gangrenous and if it is not removed can spread. ...Read more

See a doc to treat: This is called an abscess. The "definitive" treatment is to get it cut open and drained. They call that an "I and D" (incision and drainage). The doctor might also prescribe antibiotics. In the meanwhile you should do hot soaks on the area. However, you really need to go to your doctor for examination and treatment. ...Read more
