Hist heavy irreg period+ lots bloodydisch/spot. No STD Pap normal butw endocells. prog not fix 2wk OC use BTbleed. greataunt die 30 endo cancer worry?

Not necessarily: Your great aunt isn't a close enough relative that her medical history would clearly impact yours. Presence of endothelial cells is normal in a properly performed Pap test. The real problem is the heavy irregular periods. It's not clear to me how long you've been on OC's. 3 months of regular OC use usually normalizes the menstrual cycle. Follow up with your doctor if the problem persists. ...Read more

Maybe a rest: It sounds like you have already checked things out pretty thoroughly. Occasional breakthrough bleeding/irregular bleeding is a side effect of continuous treatment. If you have stopped the pill briefly (3 or 4 days) and the problem has not resolved then it might be necessary to give it a break for a month or two. Alternatively, higher doses for a while might also work. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Cauc, 30 & 1st preg. Negative triple and NT test on 1st screen. 1/6123 risk for DS. 20 week screen showed fetal nasal bone at 4.6mm. High risk for DS?

Cauc, 30 & 1st preg. Negative triple and NT test on 1st screen. 1/6123 risk for DS. 20 week screen showed fetal nasal bone at 4.6mm. High risk for DS?

Fairly unlikely: Fetal nasal bone length is not a commonly assessed marker at 20wks gestation, instead we care more at 11-13wks. As fetuses grow, epigenetics and the environment have more of an effect on growth so a small nasal bone at this gestational age is not necessarily predictive in the setting of other reassuring testing. A noninvasive blood test may help to provide more reassurance. ...Read more
