Had hysterectomy at 24 do to cervical cancer, at 36 had bilateral mastectomy two weeks later ovaries and tubes removed. Now 40 no energy, on premarin (conjugated estrogens)?

Bioidentical hormone: I would recommend you to see a physician with knowledge of bioidentical hormones. You should stop premarin, (conjugated estrogens) which is a synthetic hormone made from mares urine. Estradiol is a better choice. You may need supplementation with natural progesterone, dhea, thyroid, testosterone, pregnenolone. Brignonimd.Com. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Are you suffering from pregnancy-related symptoms or sicknesses? If not, why have you got 2 US for the "same" reason - pregnancy? A comparison should be done the same approach preferably with the same machine by the same tech if possible. So, correlate test result with clinical profile, and I would not dig around with anxiety if you're free of undue pregnancy-related disorders. More? Ask Doc... ...Read more

Irrelevant: Transvaginal ultrasounds is the best modality for assessing a placenta that is near the os (previa). However because your placenta is more than three centimeters away from the os on both scans, I would not worry about this finding of a difference as it does not matter. Make sure you don't have any bleeding though. Hope that helps and good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed with breast cancer at age 44.. treated with tamoxifen for 5 yrs.  Now age 51, vag bleeding.. had endometrial biopsy, showed proliferative en?

Side effect of Tamox: One of the side effects of taking Tamoxifen is proliferative changes in the endometrium(Lining of the Uterus). This can cause vaginal bleeding. This is likely what you are dealing with. You can ask your gynecologist for your choice/s for treatment. It may include scraping the Endometrium or get a bigger operation-hysterectomy. ...Read more

Levels: So far your levels are normal and your progesterone is also in the viable pregnancy range. Cramping in early pregnancy as well as light spotting very common. If you're still having sex, you may cramp for several days after as well. ...Read more

On hormone replacement therapy  since  hysterectomy at age 31 for ovarian cancer- now 50. Do i need to  end HRT  for normal menopause  age?

Add progesterone: Estrogen continues to be made from the fat cells and adrenal glands so you need to be on natural Progesterone forever to balance the estrogen. It stimulates the p53 gene to protect you from cancers. ...Read more

Advanced stage 4 endometriosis. 2015 treated by Hysterectomy + tubes/ovaries. How is recurrence Diagnosed? Currently use estrodiol 1mg for menopause​.

Estrogen: Endometriosis needs estrogens to make symptoms. If after stopping the Estradiol 1mg - which is a low dose and should not cause endometriosis to grow to begin with - symptoms what is thought to be endometriosis persists, that diagnosis needs to be challenged - it's unlikely to be endometriosis. ...Read more

Maybe 30-40%: Overall, I give over 30 year old pts about a 30% chance of miscarriage( as a round number, AND better to overestimate). Remember, miscarriage is natures own process of clearing not nl pregnancies... so it is a natural thing. Not fun, I grant you. But, although your previous miscarriage ups the chances a little, you still have a majority chance of a successful pregnancy.. Good luck! ...Read more

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

It's possible. . .: Usually we see a gestational sac in the uterus by the time your HCG level is 1200, but it's harder to see in the tubes. The HCG level also usually doubles every 2-3 days, and yours only went up a little over the course of a week. So those are both concerning signs. Even if your timing is off, the numbers are odd. Did anyone check a Progesterone level? That can help us with a diagnosis sometimes. ...Read more
