Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

Menstruation (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

See your doctor: What you describe is unlikely related to your surgery performed 5 months ago. Was there appendicitis or a normal appendix?

Is having gas during mensuration fine? How can it be cured?

Is having gas during mensuration fine? How can it be cured?

Try different foods: A little gas is ok but not a lot. Since we don't digest the fiber we eat, intestinal bacteria feed on excess fiber and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason may be lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats, leading to gas. During the menstrual cycle, some women have changes in the speed of food passing the gut (slower = constipation), which can increase gas. ...Read more

Painful gas stuck in my intestines during menses.it makes my tummy ache so bad.why?

Painful gas stuck in my intestines during menses.it makes my tummy ache so bad.why?

Nature: At the time of the menses your body is producing more prostaglandins. Those prostaglandins can cause intestinal cramps, colic, and often causes diarrhea. An anti-prostaglandin medication (Ibuprofen, Naproxen, etc) can be quite helpful for those symptoms. Most women have improvement in those symptoms when taking the pill. ...Read more

Breast tenderness, nausea, spotting one day (6 hours), darkening areolas, bloating, frequent gas, "missed" menses am i pregnant? Neg tests last 2weeks

Home pregnancy tests are very accurate.: They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

40years.2weeks&menses don't stop,secod weeks they ar brown&blackclots.pain in pelvic&back,vomiting,dizziness,bloating&gases.Is 5,5cm ovariancyst cause?

Need to seek care: There are several causes of abnormal bleeding. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in one condition that can cause enlarged ovarian cysts and irregular bleeding. If the bleeding is excessive you can be at risk of anemia/ low blood counts. If you are not already actively being followed for these symptoms, you should seek care soon. ...Read more

2 weeks &menses don't stop,secod weeks they are brown &black clots.pain in pelvic&back,vomiting,dizziness,bloating&gases. Is a5,5cm ovarian cyst cause?

Maybe: The cyst may be producing greater amounts of estrogen, but other things /causes need to be checked. Your profile says you are 62 years old - if that's the case then you need to see a doctor and have a sonogram & biopsy (at a minimum). I would need more history to give a better assessment about the causes. In most cases, a "simple" 5.5cm cyst has a good chance of going away on its own; 62yrs:worrie ...Read more

Regulation of bleed: With abnormal uterine bleeding like you have had,I'm glad you had an ulltrasound but I would still recommend going back for the pap smear as well to rule out cervical problems causing the bleeding.The Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will hopefully regulate your hormones and periods better if the hormones are the cause of your twice monthly periods in the next 3 months or so.Need to rule out cervix as the cause though. ...Read more

Symptom cornucopia: You have a large number of symptoms (cornucopia) that need to be sorted out by a GYN MD visit. But first, do a home pregnancy test to get "the ball rolling" as it is the most likely source of your symptoms until proven otherwise. ...Read more

Suddenly a change in PMS symptoms and menstruation. What can cause this?

Suddenly a change in PMS symptoms and menstruation. What can cause this?

Age or other causes: As women get older they can have a change in their premenstrual and menstrual symptoms. At age 46 it is not unusual to be in peri-menopause which is the stage before menopause (the point your cycle stops). However conditions in the body like thyroid disease can cause similar symptoms and changes. So if this is significantly unusual or bothersome then you can set an appointment to see your doctor. ...Read more

No: A lot of different things can do this but it is not a characteristic symptom of perimenopause. On the other hand, ovarian problems (cancer in a worst case situation) can occasionally present this way, so that any workup should include a look at the ovaries. ...Read more

Is getting a peak reading on OPK every month followed by normal menstruation a good sign of ovulating regularly? How soon after peak will i ovulate

Is getting a peak reading on OPK every month followed by normal  menstruation a good sign of ovulating regularly? How soon after peak will i ovulate

Yes!: Once a urine lh surge is seen, lh has been in your circulation for around 10 to 12 hours prior to being excreted by the kidneys. From the onset of a pituitary surge , it takes around 40 to 44 hours. Thus 44-12= and 40-10= [30-32 hrs- range] will be the presumed time that the ovary actually releases the egg. Because testing is typically once to twice a day, that range expands to +/-12-24hrs. :)-. ...Read more

Rule out pregnancy: Assuming you are not pregnant, which you can easily test for, it may be an anovulatory cycle that will delay or prevent your normal cycle. If you are not pregnant, your doctor can prescribe Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to see if you have withdrawal bleeding. Blood tests for hormone levels including prolactin and to rule out poly cystic ovary syndrome can be done as well. ...Read more
