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

U/s @23 weeks placenta 3.8cm from os-trans abdominal full bladder. At 28w different clinic transvaginal -3.4cm from os. Who is right? It's posterior
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

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

On hormone replacement therapy since hysterectomy at age 31 for ovarian cancer- now 50. Do i need to end HRT for normal menopause age?
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
56, just had hysterectomy and oorph for stage 1 uterine cancer found in d&c. Surgery pathology clean. Hot flashes are horrific. Is estrogen an option?
I'm 35 had a miscarriage in June at 10wks -2 kids living (teens)2 abortions in 99&2000. I'm pregnant again (3 weeks) what chance of miscarrying again?
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?
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
