Any : Any stressors you are dealing with (i.E cold) can affect you hormones thus affecting your menstrual cycle. Unless there is a chance you are pregnant, i would not worry about it. Your cycle should be back to normal very soon. ...Read more

Abnormal : Abnormal periods can be caused by fluctuations in hormones. If you continue to have irregular spotting you should be seen for this. Please be sure your thyroid functions are normal. Weight issues (too high or too low) can cause abnormal bleeding. Please be sure your pap smear is up to date also. If this continues you need a complete medical evaluation. If you have pain, vomiting, or light-headedness, then you would need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

You're Late.: It's possible you are just a little late. Pickup an over-the-counter pregnancy test if you have been sexually actively to check. If you experience any pain or heavy menses make sure to followup with your doctor/GYN. ...Read more

Hello, I am on aviane contractive pills and I have my period even though I am not supposed to have it now.. Is it ok? Does it mean it is not working?

OK: It's called breakthrough bleeding, and is not uncommon on the pill. The pill is still working. If it persists too long, talk to your doctor about trying a different pill. Perhaps it will resolve when your next period is over. ...Read more

Bashful: Fetuses aren't always most cooperative for ultrasounds. They can be "bashful" and not display their genitalia clearly for ultrasound to determine gender. If penis is visible, it's obviously a male. But if not visible, perhaps he's just "bashful" & ultrasound tech is unable to visualize it. ...Read more

Smoking: Typically changes seen on chest x-ray occur after years of chronic smoking. At your age and with your history of exposure I would not expect your chest xray to show anything abnormal. Would recommend not restarting smoking, avoid developing the habit. Smoking comes with lots of health risks.

Wait and test: None of the symptoms you mention confirm or rule out pregnancy. You may want to wait a little longer and if in doubt go ahead and take a pregnancy test. In the mean time I am also concerned regarding you having nipple discharge. This is something that you need to check with your health care provider too. ...Read more

Not pregnant: It never hurts to try a pregnancy test but highly unlikely for you to be pregnant. Having been on birth control had thinned your uterine lining, which makes the initial bleed light, and that's okay. The clot is not uncommon. Just watch your bleeding and if much worse then see a doctor. ...Read more
