Patience: A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or insemination, or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. After IUI, one can forget about sperm, eggs, or babies, and just enjoy everything else in life for the next 3 weeks... and then do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

I am having heart palpitations along with dizziness, nausea, shaks, and I also had my period seven days ago and now I am on it again along with joint pain all over my body with weakness and tiredness what is going on I am only 30

Hello.: Hello. I don't know if those symptoms just came on. The combination of palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, nausea and dizziness is worrisome. I realize that you are a young woman. These are some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack.
Although your symptoms could be caused by a number of things and you are young, I none the less recommend that you call 911. It is important to determine if you are having a cardiac event. ...Read more

I had Essure put in a yr ago and now I have pelvic pain severe bloating joint pain nausea periods lasting 4wks night sweats hot flashes. Is it Essure?

Hard to say: About 98-99 out of 100 women are very pleased with the Essure; the others have many complaints. No one understands why or if the Essure is really the cause, but it does seem to happen.
