Menstrual Cycle Fainting
I recently took a Plan B and now my menstral cycle is 8 days passed. I started getting a faint pink discharge todayno cycle yet. What could this be?
Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Yes: If your periods are long and/or heavy, various medications may help, such as birth control pills (even though you've had a tubal ligation). Other options for long heavy periods sometimes include lysteda, the Levonorgestrel iud, or an endometrial ablation. It's worth talking to your gynecologist about. ...Read more
Vaginal bleeding: The menstrual cycle is monthly vaginal bleeding which occurs when the woman is fertile and ovulates (produces an egg, which takes about 2 weeks) but does NOT then get pregnant. The uterine lining will build up for a couple of weeks to prepare for a possible pregnancy. This will shed away in the form of bleeding when pregnancy has not occurred and then the process will start all over again. ...Read more
The ovary: You may not believe it but the ovary controls the cycle. The brain hormones are actually passive to the ovarian hormones. The physiology is complicated but if we were to give the same rain hormone pulses every hour then the ovary would control the pituitary hormones and ovulation would occur. ...Read more
At 48 okay: At 48 it's normal to have some increased fluxuations in your cycle. The average age of menopause is 51, so you're getting closer. Many women in late 40's begin to miss periods. If you're not too heavy or too thin, and you don't have a thyroid disorder then i wouldn't worry. Of course, pregnancy needs to be ruled out (i know, i know!), but that's highly unlikely. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Cleans uterus lining: Every cycle your uterine lining prepares for possible implantation of a fertile egg. If you don't become pregnant then the lining is sloughed off and that is your menstrual discharge. So the lining of your uterus is shed but no other part of you is "cleaned out" though some women become more emotional before and during their periods and thus might clean out pent-up emotions... ...Read more
