Treat uterrine lining overgrowth? 18, a girl can't be examined;my beliefs. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) gets my period, hardly comes. Brownish things in my pads daily, worry

Discuss with doc: Overgrowth of the uterine lining is a benign process that can lead to relatively heavy menses. You could decide to ignore it altogether with no significant consequences other than some irregularity or unpredictability of the pattern of flow. The Pill was originally studied to help women pace their menses and this might provide you some relief by pushing the cycle into a defined time interval. ...Read more

Infection on uterus mouth doctor treated it with cauterization? What r side effects & will their be any problem in conceiving through iui

Discharge: Most often, infections are treated with antibiotics and not cauterization. However, after cauterization, you can experience discharge, foul odor and pain. It usually resolves with time. You can get pregnant after cauterization. You may have difficulty due to your age rather than the procedure

44 years old. Long history of menstrual cycle ranging from 10-20 days. Lg amount of pus last month. Treated for infection. Bulky uterus found. What could this be? Growing breast tissue as well. Going for ultrasound.

44 years old. Long history of menstrual cycle ranging from 10-20 days. Lg amount of pus last month. Treated for infection. Bulky uterus found. What could this be? Growing breast tissue as well. Going for ultrasound.

Likely benign change: The irregular periods may not be connected, and a bulky uterus could be benign myomas (fibroids) but with the 'pus', getting an ultrasound and if indicated an endometrial biopsy sound prudent. Breast tissue growth suggests hormonal change as well. ...Read more

I'm so scared I might be pregnant and I don't want too die from childbirth and I don't want too die from abortion infection I don't know wat to do?

First things first: Perform a home pregnancy test. If negative, no worries. If positive, visit an OB/GYN for an evaluation. That Dr can provide you with proper prenatal care or advice. The risk of maternal death is very low in the US about 2/10000 live births or 0.02%. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

How long after childbirth are you in the clear from c sordelli infection?

How long after childbirth are you in the clear from c sordelli infection?

Very rare: Infections with clostridum sordellii are very rare and have been seen in women after childbirth. However, they have also been seen in women, who were not pregnant. Therefore, we cannot assume that being a defined time period, weeks or months, out of pregnancy will minimize the risk of the infection - the risk, albeit extremely small, is always there. ...Read more

I am 47 youngest child 11 had partial hysterctomy and just been diagainosed with infection in breast due to childbirth. How is this possible?

That: That is an unusual situation. It is very rare for women who are not breastfeeding to get a breast infection ("mastitis"). I would like to be sure that you have had a mammogram and complete breast assessment. Please recheck with your physician and see if you need a mammogram or other breast testing to rule out something more serious. There are some conditions that can look like a breast infection but are more serious, such as a malignancy. ...Read more

Hav yeast infection (swollen red itchy bumps on legs arms n butt)after childbirth. Can it b a sign of diabetes. Wht can b other reason fr the prblm?

Probably not yeast: These are not the typical sites for yeast infection and thus it is likely from something else. Pregnancy itself can be associated with unusual skin rash which should subside within 30 days after delivery. If the problem persists and not helped by topical cortisone, see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I'm trying to conceive but have been told my uterine lining is thin. Is there anything I can do to thicken it up?

Thin Endometrium: This is one of the most difficult problems wee see. Often it is not something that can be corrected. Viagara suppositories, trental, vitamin e, acupuncture and herbal medicine have all been tried with very unpredictable results. If all attempts to address this fail, you may resort to working with a gestational carrier. ...Read more

Is a polyp usually detected with a hysterescopy & removed with D&C. Mine wasn't, only seen when I had hysterectomy for thickened uterine lining.

Can I opt NOT to get the D&C in combo with a hysteroscopy/polypectomy and just have the two without a d&c as I don't want my uterine lining scrape?

Confirm with doctor: The surgical plan will depend on why the doctor is doing the surgery in the first place. It you have a simple polyp then a D and C is usually not done. If the doctor feels that tissue sampling is needed for whatever medical problem you have prompting the surgery then a D and C may be warranted. Each surgery must be individualized. ...Read more
