Hi! Is it normal to have ongoing spotting and terrible menstrual cycles (pain, heavy bleeding) 3.5 months after fibroid surgery?

Hi! Is it normal to have ongoing spotting and terrible menstrual cycles (pain, heavy bleeding) 3.5 months after fibroid surgery?

Need evaluation: It really depends on how many fibroids were removed and their location. In general though I would say it's not normal over 3 months out. Especially if you feel like the pain is getting worse. Probably a good idea for you to go back to your surgeon and ask for an evaluation. In that period of time scar tissue can form (in uterus or pelvis) which can lead to pain.

On and off Back pain, menstrual cramping, bleeding for a week. Are these common symptoms of depo?

A few things: The depoprovera shot is very effective and easy to use. You will need one shot every 3 months. Most patients will have no periods but some will have irregular periods. It is an appetite stimulant. The excess hunger can cause weight gain for some. Long term use can lead to some bone loss. Back pain and menstrual cramping are not typical side effects.

MeetYourEndometrium: When I hear stuff like that, I think "endometriosis." Often difficult to diagnose because it's pieces of the womb tissue that have been scattered around and cause all kinds of discomfort and menstrual problems. So maybe get that checked out. The sooner they figure out if it's that or something else the better. I wouldn't bank on what you've described just miraculously going away all of a sudden.

Took Naproxen for menstrual pain and now it slowed my flow. Is this healthy? Should I avoid this in the future? I feel like bleeding is natural.

Menstrual pain: I doubt the Naproxen had anything to do with your menstrual flow. It is a very good medicine for pain and cramping during your period and is prescribed and recommended regularly. We all agree that bleeding during your period is natural. Do not worry about taking Naproxen, I'm glad it helped your discomfort.

Bleeding and intense menstrual pain caused after sex with over a year old cooper IUD. Is that normal? My period doesn't even start for another 4 days

IUD: If the IUD worked well for you earlier during the year then it might not be due to IUD. It is not unusual to have some menstrual irregularity once in a while but if the issues persist then see your PCP/OBGYN.

See a medical doctor: Sounds like your mom needs to see a medical doctor. There are many medical, and minor surgical procedures that could help her with her heavy bleeding. There is no reason for her to be suffering. Sometimes a simple IUD can stop her bleeding. I'd recommend seeing a medical doctor to get the help she needs. An Ob/Gyn would be the best route.

Can mefenamic acid affect on the bleeding of menstrual cycle when they are given in the dysmenorrhea?

Yes: This medication decreases pain and bleeding during the menstrual cycle. It's a great tool for those women in whom a common medication like Ibuprofen hasn't done enough to help with either bleeding or pain/cramping. Good luck and hope that answers your question.

Sounds ok: A 3 days cycle followed by some old bloody discharge sounds fairly normal. If you are not happy with your level of cycle control there are many birth control options that can lighten and shorten the menstrual cycle.

Blood: Each woman's period can have different patterns. The dark brown blood may simply be older blood being cleaned from the uterus. Are you saying that you are also experiencing period pain, late period and pain with urination?
