Could too much estrogen&progesterone in BCP cause pregnancy symptoms: veiny breasts/hips, bloating/distended stomach, more visible montgomery glands?

Could too much estrogen&progesterone in BCP cause pregnancy symptoms: veiny breasts/hips, bloating/distended stomach, more visible montgomery glands?

Certainly: Every woman is different, and not every OCP is appropriate for every woman. There are may OCPs out there with differences in the types and dosages of estrogen/progesterone. It is absolutely appropriate to try a different strength and or progestin and see if these symptoms resolve.

Call doc: I think you need to consult your doctor re. Your problems. The dull pain can be from a kidney infection or just from the usual back problem. The bloating may be a side effect of Macrobid. However you need to get checked to find out what is happening including whether Macrobid is doing the job.

Dull pain on right side (sometimes left) near hip in front and bloating. My last period was irregular and sex has been painful. Could be related?

Yes: It may represent a gyn problem in addition to a possible GI issue. Given the pain with sex, you need to be formally evaluated by your gyn.

Many options: There are multiple options. Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people. There is also a drug called Lysteda that contains no hormones which will help others. Ask your obgyn to evaluate you for endometriosis.

I have constant bloating pressure from left hip have IBS dr reckon just a flair up could that be right I am worried about ovarian cancer?

I have constant bloating pressure from left hip have IBS dr reckon just a flair up could that be right I am worried about ovarian cancer?

IBS: Do you have IBS or IBD? There is a difference. Ovarian cancer is not very common, but if you have family history of it, or of breast cancer in first generation family members, you will want to check with your gynecologist for regular exams. Do you have bowel movement changes that point more to colonic issues? An exam by your primary MD and some bloodwork if warranted would be a first step.

Unclear but: Things to consider include colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable colon, appendicitis, gall bladder, or kidney stones. You did not indicate what was the MRI for. If abdominal imaging was done and was unremarkable, you may need to see a gastroenterologist who may do a colonoscopy.

Feel hard small lump in lower left abdomen, tender to touch almost under hip bone. Ct scan normal and have bloating.

Change diet: If the CT scan is normal then the lump may not be anything more than a cyst but you should consult your doctor to be sure. For the bloating try dietary changes like eliminating dairy or gluten.

Signs of pregnancy: When did your menstrual period become irregular? When did your first period happen? What do irregular periods mean for you? If you are sexually active and having unprotected (no condoms) vaginal intercourse with a partner, tiredness after exercise, bloating and tender breasts may be signs of pregnancy. As pregnancy continues, hip joints can get loose. Home pregnancy test in AM (1st void is best)

Common: You can start OCPs anytime, but ideally on first day (not last day) of ur period. Ur symptoms are common and should resolve within next three cycles. Ur cycle is off because of starting OCPs late - it can take a few months for your body to get use to them and regular cycles to return. If PMS symptoms persist, see ur dr about lowering estrogen dose or having take them continuously.

Sugar intolerance: Consider a milk or table sugar intolerance. Lactose intolerance could cause bloating and wouldn't show up on any of the tests you mentioned. So would small bowel overgrowth. A GI specialist can do a breath test for these conditions. Its non invasive and might be helpful.

My vaginal swab detected hsv1 I have no lesions only pain and bloating in my pelvis. I have had a complete hysterectomy including the removal of my ovaries. I haven't been sexually active in over 12 months. Could the results be incorrect?

May be May be: What makes you suspect that the test result may be incorrect? More than 80% of the adults have HSV 1 infection and it can infect the genitals as well. There is no cure for it, however, if you have symptoms, medication can generally control those.

Constipation: Definitely sounds like you have constipation related to the oxycodone. Whenever you are on a narcotic, you'll need a laxative to help you stool. I recommend docosate sodium via prescription or magnesium to bowel tolerance (i.e. Until you get the quality of stools you want). Start with 500mg/night and double every night until you achieve the stools you want. You should be stooling 1-2x per day.
