I menstruated twice last month.1st and 28th. M due for this month 23rd but It hasn't come. A bit worried?

Normal: According to my calculation, with a 28 day cycle, your menses is due on the 24th. You are not late. Unfortunately, ovaries don't always read the book and can be off by couple of days and still be normal.
If worried, do a UPT to ease your mind. ...Read more

I have pco, and have not menstruated for 3 months now. Since 2 days am seeing little blood stains. .. What could this be?

Very common: With pco you likely don't ovulate regularly, so irregular bleeding is very common. You probably need to be on some medication to regulate your periods. And there's of course a chance you could be pregnant, even with pco, if you have been sexually active. ...Read more

I just had my FSH level tested about 2.5 weeks after I menstruated per my OBGYN. I am 39 and my level was 4.5. is that a good number.

I just had my FSH level tested about 2.5 weeks after I menstruated per my OBGYN. I am 39 and my level was 4.5. is that a good number.

Hard to say: The FSH should be checked on the 3rd day (CD 3) of your menstrual cycle to be interpreted. It sound like yours was tested sometime after ovulation; there is no meaningful way to interpret the number at that time. Talk to your doctor about the reasons, and good wishes. ...Read more

I've been experiencing a rust colored discharge. How do I make it stop? Last month, I was on a birth control that had me bleed for the whole month, when they were over I menstruated normally and then the discharge started to happen. It went away for abo

It: It may be that you need a different formula of birth control pills, with a different combination of estrogen/progesterone. Hormone balance can affect spotting which is what I suspect your discharge is. I am very glad that you had a complete medical evaluation. It would be reasonable to call the physician who saw you and ask about your birth control preparation. Also, the antibiotics can affect the efficacy of the birth control pills. ...Read more

Be seen: I would sure be seen and fully evaluated. Certainly one concern would be a tubal pregnancy, which could be life threatening. There are more common simpler causes such as a urinary tract infection as well. A detailed exam and appropriate studies would likely determine the cause. Be seen! ...Read more

Discontinued after 3 Depo-Provera shots, I've had moderate bleeding every 2wks for 3mos. I last menstruated jan7 and until now, no menses. Is this normal?

If you are obese, or: Have pcos, this could contribute to the continued spotting and irregular periods. Some simple blood tests and and us can bring you closer to a diagnosis. There are meds that can help regulate your periods. I don't like Depo-Provera much, because I see people gain significant weight on it. Many oral ocp's will not do that. It also puts you at risk for osteoporosis, so take some calcium citrate ; 5000 d3. ...Read more

I started what I think is my period but usually I have to have provera (medroxyprogesterone) to menstruated? Is this normal with pcos or do I need to find a dr asap!?

I started what I think is my period but usually I have to have provera (medroxyprogesterone) to menstruated? Is this normal with pcos or do I need to find a dr asap!?

Could be normal: Women with pcos do ovulate and menstruate on their own sometimes. Some more often than others. Weight loss, exercise, and healthy diet can improve the frequency. If this bleeding episode runs the course of a normal period, then I would just mark it in your calendar and hold off on Provera (medroxyprogesterone) until next month. If you bleed too much, or for too long, I would call your gyn doc. ...Read more
