Go see ReproEndo: At least get a 2nd opinion. Ask how s/he figured out that you don't ovulate. Ask how/why they described your uterus as "infantile".

Ii just had an pelvic ultrasound where i  i was told that I have a lot of follicles, what does that mean, can I get pregnant soon?

See long answer: Us can identify the number of follicles in the ovary but fertility is dependent not only on the number of follicles but when the egg is released from the follicle. This usually occurs when the follicle is between 18 – 23 mm. Also, the endometrial stripe changes dynamically throughout the menstrual cycle and the ideal time is usually when there is the tri-laminar or “triple stripe”. These are dy. ...Read more

I was told by the doctor that I have sinus tachycardia. What can I expect?

Almost always normal: Sinus tachycardia simply means your heart rate is at or over 100 beats per minute. It is normal and expected with exertion- the muscles need more blood flow, so the heart beats faster. The heart should slow back down with rest- typically to 60's-80's per minute. If it stays elevated at rest, then may need to have check for thyroid or anemia. May also be dehydrated or need to see a doctor. ...Read more

I have a condition called vagisms and i was wondering can that cause me to not be able to get pregnant? Will it ever go away? I was pregnant for about a month 5 yrs ago and i didn't know if having this condition had anything to do with it. I am wanting to

I have a condition called vagisms and i was wondering can that cause me to not be able to get pregnant? Will it ever go away? I was pregnant for about a month 5 yrs ago and i didn't know if having this condition had anything to do with it. I am wanting to

Frankly, : Frankly, I am confused. You listed this question under cardiology and asked about vagisms. I am assuming that this is in reference to vaginismus and i will edit this to fall under ob/ gyn and provide a response as such. Vaginismus is when there is involuntary tightness of the muscles around the vagina when intercourse is attempted. It can be very painful. Does this sound like what you were inquiring about? Primary vaginismus is when a woman has never been able to have sexual intercourse because of the severity of the muscle spasm. In some cases the woman might not be able t to insert a tampon or undergo a full pelvic examination. Secondary vaginismus is usually triggered by sometime traumatic, be it emotional or physical. Since you have been pregnant in the past, it sounds like this is secondary vaginismus. The question is more about conceiving than carrying a baby. If the penis is unable to enter the vagina, that would be an issue with becoming pregnant. Secondary vaginismus is treatable. Please talk to your doctor so that she or he can look into the cause. Then your doctor can provide you with some treatment options. If there appears to be a psychological component to vaginismus, your doctor might suggest you talk with a counselor. Be, direct with questions when you talk to your doctor; so that he or she can you give the information you need. Good luck. ...Read more

What to do if i recently found out i was born with anemia. Does that mean i still have anemia?

Changeable issue : Anemia means your red blood cell mass falls below the normal range for age and size.There are many causes.As one ages, you have the ability to absorb nutrients and build new blood cells and thus increase your red cell mass.

I was told I have a pelvic mass do too fibroids what can I expect?

Unpredictable: First of all it is unusual to get a first time diagnosis of fibroids at age 50 unless they are very small. They really should not be large and growing at that age. That would slightly increase the risk of cancer. But fibroids may cause no symptoms, or they may cause pain, bleeding, constipation, etc. Depends on number, size and location. ...Read more

Why did my dr tell me i might be a candidate to have a septum removed when they diagnosed me with a bicornuate uterus?

Big difference: There is a big difference between a septum and a bicornuate uterus. . A septum is a divider of your uterus but the outside of the uterus is normal. It can be excised. But, i would need to know how deep does the septum go down. If it is a little it might not be warranted. A consult with a reproductive endocrinologist might clarify the question. ...Read more

Do I have to fast for thyroid blood test? It read that I don't have to. The never told me that I had to either.

No: You do not need to fast for thyroid function tests. However, if your doctor ordered other tests, e.g. blood lipids, or blood glucose, fasting is required.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
