Probably not: It is more likely that you are 'nesting', maybe a little obsessively. Talking with a therapist during this time can be helpful to reduce the anxiety and stress of trying to conceive. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been on the Depo-provera for over 9years now. Do i have a good chance that it will be a while before my period.

I have been on the Depo-provera for over 9years now. Do i have a good chance that it will be a while before my period.

Possibly: After stopping Depo, there is a possibility that your next period can take up to a year to return, however, this is by no means guaranteed. You could have your period return by the next month. It is different for everyone. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi, I am 23 and I have had a slight constipation for a while. Normallyi go to the toilet once a day, but sometimes i couldn't.

Constipation: Eat more vegetables or high fiber diet. Well hydrationyou could also add fiber supplement to the high fiber diet, goal of 25-30 grams per day. However, remember to titrate your fiber intake slowly to avoid excessive bloating/discomfort (side effects of too much fiber at once). Suggest to increase your fiber intake by 5 grams/day for one week till you achieve your goal. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) as needed is ok. ...Read more

Mucus: Mucus discharge from the rectum isn't uncommon and may be associated with mild inflammation/irritation of the rectum or with irritable bowel syndrome. To improve bowel function drink adequate fluids and include fiber in the diet or with a supplement like psyllium. To stimulant bowel function add daily senokotS if needed. Consult a gastroenterologist if no improvement. ...Read more

You need a physical: You definitely need your pcp to perform a rectal exam. Involuntary water discharge from the rectum is definitely not normal and with a physical exam your doctor will be able to help you and possibly refer you to the appropriate specialist. Sorry that i cannot be more specific but the key thing here is that you need a physical without further delay. Best wishes, ariel. ...Read more

I had a baby a year ago and i got the eperderol  for the pain and ever since then i haven't been able to feel when my bladder is full do you know y?

Unclear: Did you have c-section or vaginal delivery? Stress incontinence is the term for losing control of your bladder when it gets full, due to weakness of the pelvic floor. This is common after vaginal delivery--even a sneeze or cough can cause urine to spill out. Unlikely it has anything to do with epidural. Ask your obstetrician about treatment options if problem continues. Good luck! ...Read more

Out : Out of shape. Legs killing you. One of the best ways to injure yourself when you are deconditioned is to be too aggressive with your work outs. Let you legs rest a little before you get back to working out. Stretch really well before and after you exercise. ...Read more

When I go to the bathroom I have to wipe with toilet paper several times to get all the stool off. this has been for the last 6-8 months and it's dark?

Add fiber: You should add fiber for a month. Try to have more water. To get more fiber use a cereal for breakfast and a salad for lunch and dinner. Drink water with every meal and in between. Look for stool to become bigger and soft. Add a wet wipe. If not better in 1 month, then see doctor. ...Read more

Blood in paper: Since you were constipated, the stools have dried and irritated the lining of the rectum as you had a bowel movement. If you start having more bleeding, see a physician. Fiber and water will go long ways in avoiding constipation. ...Read more
