If I wore my tampon for 7 and 1/2 hours on the last day and it's three days later should I still be worried about tss?

If I wore my tampon for 7 and 1/2 hours on the last day and it's three days later should I still be worried about tss?

Not so much: It's often recommended not to wear a tampon longer than 8 hours. So I wouldn't be too worried if you "wore" one for 7.5 hours. Try to make sure you use the minimum absorbency necessary, too. ...Read more

I have had my period for three weeks now, it isn't heavy (1 to 2 tampons a day). What can be causing this, should I be worried?

Bleeding: Most likely you have dysfunctional uterine bleeding due to not ovulating. Because of constant hormonal stimulation the lining of the uterus builds up and breaks off. However there could be other causes. Check your pregnancy test and see your doctor right away. ...Read more

I changed my regular tampon three times in a day as it was full. It was the first day of my period this month. Is that considered heavy?

I changed my regular tampon three times in a day as it was full. It was the first day of my period this month. Is that considered heavy?

Probably not: Sounds more like normal flow. Heavy flow will usually require more than 3 changes and may be associated with passing clots. Be sure to schedule routine GYN check and discuss any further concerns you may have. ...Read more

First month back on pill after three months. Period 1wk early day three, bad cramping bloodywhite fleshy clot/clump on tampon. Should i be concerned?

Breakthroug bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) for almost three weeks and am bleeding ALOT i leak through my super tampons is this normal?

I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) for almost three weeks and am bleeding ALOT i leak through my super tampons is this normal?

Yes: Some women do have more bleeding after Mirena (levonorgestrel) placement. I tell my patients, it can take awhile for the Mirena (levonorgestrel) to get settled in the uterus. If the bleeding persists after a few weeks, for instance, more than 3, see your doctor. It could be in the wrong location? Or there is a lot of lining that is shedding. Your doctor may chose to remove and replace, or give you a pill to help bleeding ...Read more

Missed period should I be concerned I have missed my period for the past month had sex last week and three days later had light spotting for twelve hours didn't even need a pad or tampon. I have now missed another period, should I be concerned with pregna

As : As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can always take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you have a positive pregnancy test or if you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give you doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
