I had peroid bleefing for over a year what can cause this. I have pcos as well?

See your gyne: The question is vague: I am assuming that you mean that you 've had continuous bleeding for a year. Pcos patients have a hormonal imbalance that can prevent regular ovulation. This leads to an excess estrogen effect on the uterus. Evaluation is necessary because the xs estrogen usually casuses benign bleeding, but can lead to polyps and even precancerous cells in the uterus. ...Read more

Hi doctors, I have been having constipation for almost few weeks, what is the cause and how can I be regular again?

Lack of fiber: The most common reason for constipation is lack of fiber and fluids. So adding this to your diet is essential.Regular exercise can help too. If your diet has not changed but suddenly you feel that you bowel habits have, make sure that you get an updated colonoscopy. Anybody older than 50 should have one for screening purposes. ...Read more

What does an abnormal pap really mean?  Should i request another? I have been have issues for the last 10 years with ovarian ruptures and the last 6 months I have been having some horrible cramping when it is not time for my menstral cycle.  Does this hav

It : It could have something to do with an abnormal pap smear. Abnormal pap smears indicate that there are abnormal cells detected on the cervix (which can spread or maybe a sign of hpv) doctors typically want to repeat an abnormal pap smear in 6 months. Since you have had horrible cramping, it is crucial you get this checked out. Pelvic cramping can be a sign of an infection, endometriosis, pelvic infammatory disease, etc. See a doctor. ...Read more

Been bloated for 2 weeks with no pain what can i do amd what does this mean? I had a regular periode could i be prego? It was with a condom

Been bloated for 2 weeks with no pain what can i do amd what does this mean? I had a regular periode could i be prego? It was with a condom

How are your bowels?: You could be having bloating due to bowel issues, rather than pregnancy. If you had a normal period and used a condom for sex, it is unlikely this is related to pregnancy, especially this early. How often are you going to the bathroom, are you straining? What is your stool consistency? I would start by talking to your doc and getting a full history and physical to diagnosis your symptoms. ...Read more

YOU NEED AN evaluati: Evaluation, you will need help because if u only have one period per yr- that is not normal and u are not ovulating so see your gyn so your gyn can start the workup, u need an exam , blood work and an ultrasound to start out with and you will need meds to make you ovulate - possibly Clomid (clomiphene) but you may need injections, your gyn can refer you to an infeet specialist , u should have seen gyn long ago. ...Read more

I am 32 years old and I have not had a period in a year or more my doctor said I had dysplasia on my cervix could this be why don't have a cycle?

I am 32 years old and I have not had a period in a year or more my doctor said I had dysplasia on my cervix could this be why don't have a cycle?

Maybe but not likely: If a person had severe dysplasia that was causing a blockage in the cervix to prevent the release of menstrual blood that might prevent a cycle but would be very rare. Most of the time absence of menses is a hormone imbalance. In general these are two separate problems. ...Read more

I haven't had a period in over a yr. And I have bad anxiety. Could my anxiety cause me to not have a period?

I haven't had a period in over a yr. And I have bad anxiety. Could my anxiety cause me to not have a period?

Sometimes it can.: A thorough gyn evaluation of amenorrhea extending beyond a 4 to 6 month period should be done. Any number of medical problems can cause that and need addressed if that is the case. If the exam provides no readily identified medical disorder then a counseler evaluation for anxiety should be persued. That could lead to a psychiatric evaluation also. Certainly after a year both are "overdue". ...Read more
