Trying to conceive: Duphaston is a brand of dydrogesterone, available outside States, used to treat menstrual disorders such as irregular and/or painful periods. As such, bleeding can be expected upon stopping this medication, but it's still best to discuss w/your prescribing doc who should have explained what & when to expect. Re TTC, see your Family Doc to be sure you're healthy enough. Start taking Folic Acid. ...Read more

Second guessing: Second guessing is not helpful in this situation. You may want to take a pregnancy test, and if this one is negative, take another one a week after, while not having unprotected intercourse during that week. If the second test is still negative, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. ...Read more

If not pregnant, see your healthcare professional and have your partner checked for low sperm first. If normal. ask about an HSG test for your tubes' patency. ...Read more

See : See your doctor. If you are over the age of 45, this can be a sign of the onset of menopause. Many women experience long periods and heavy bleeding upon the onset of menopause. Many doctors will prescribe hormonal therapy to help the bleeding subside. He/she may also test you for anemia and provide supplements as needed.
If you are under age 45, it is still crucial that you get assessed by a doctor. If this is accompanied by intolerable pain and cramping of the abdomen, go to the emergency room. ...Read more

Hi Scarlett, : Congratulations on your baby girl. You're describing something that is common after having a baby. Continue your birth control every day & usually your cycle will stabilize by 2-3 months. Two weeks of spotting is normal; 2 weeks of heavy bleeding with clots, dizziness, and/or weakness should be evaluated by your ob. Continue your prenatal vitamins if you have any left & good luck with your baby. ...Read more

Common: This is common from medically induced miscarriage. Just do a medicated vinegar douche. If it still persists, you may use a birth control pill to kick your hormonal system to get back to normal. To be safe, do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

If i start taking birth control pills now will it be able to prevent my period in two weeks? I'm going on a big vacation. I would stop right after.

If i start taking birth control pills now will it be able to prevent my period in two weeks? I'm going on a big vacation. I would stop right after.

Sorry but no . . .: Starting birth control pills now won't prevent your menses in 2 weeks. However, if you're already taking birth control pills, then you can prevent your period by skipping your sugar/placebo pills and immediately starting your next month's pills as soon as you finish your current month's active pills. Some birth control pills are now marketed as quarterly or annual menses rather than monthly. ...Read more

After finishing a months worth of sprintec to stop the bleeding on Depo-Provera I should have had a normal period. Ive been bleeding for two weeks now?

Ugh!: Depo-Provera prevents pregnancy by blocking ovulation. After prolonged anovulation, the endometrium (lining of the endometrium) can become thinner and hence break through bleeding or spotting can occur. Sometimes we will use estrogen, or OCP's to try to stop the bleeding. More often than not, this strategy helps, but not always. A NSAID for 8 days has also been used for this same purpose. ...Read more

Bleeding : Bleeding in early pregnancy is very common and complicates one and five pregnancies. 50% of these will go on to miscarriage within the first two weeks. As long as there is no passing of clots or tissue this could still be a normal pregnancy and so no intervention is needed. Keep your appointment with your doctor because ectopic (tubal) pregnancy must be ruled out. It may take a few weeks to establish that this is a normal pregnancy but as long as the bleeding is not heavy and there is no severe abdominal pain there is no need to go to the emergency room. ...Read more
