Your body: Is responding normally to not having normal hormonal balance for 10 months. Sometimes this can lead to irregular bleeding during or in between periods for a few months before you become regular again. If you are trying to get pregnant (just IF), then you will need to wait for your periods to be regular. If not, then just ride it out. If it persists beyond 3-4 months, go see a healthcare pro. ...Read more

My dr asked me to make test the third day of my period the result is :fsh 21.20 and TSH is 2.30. Does this show normal ovulation?

My dr asked me to make test the third day of my period the result is :fsh 21.20 and TSH is 2.30. Does this show normal ovulation?

No, consider: Neither test is a test for ovulation. Tsh is a screen for thyroid disease, and yours is in a normal range. Fsh is tested on cd 3 as a test of ovarian reserve, meaning "how important is your age." generally lower is better. Yours at 21 is higher than we'd like: please discuss what this means with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm on my third day of my period and my belly and the part under my belly button looks swollen. No pain. Runny nose and sore throat. Normal?

Probably: Many normal changes can happen during your period, especially when you are young and your body is adjusting to changing hormone levels. Pain, swelling, irregular periods are especially common. A runny nose and sore throat would be from something else, such as a viral illness, allergies, irritation to something around you, etc. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. It is definitely not likely to get pregnant during one's period. However, if you had sex on the last day of your period and you ovulated early and you still had fertile, mobile sperm left in your body- then it would be conceivable that you could conceive. It is of course a long shot. ...Read more

This is gross but my period smells like metal. I'm on my third day and it's heavy it's never really smelled like anything before is this normal?

This is gross but my period smells like metal. I'm on my third day and it's heavy it's never really smelled like anything before is this normal?

May be infection: This does happen. You are not imaging it. The coppery smell is because the blood being shed contains iron, which smells coppery to you. Menstrual cycles may smell different at different times due to the amount of old blood left in the vagina, hormone levels, and even the type of sanitary pads used. If the malodor persists even after your cycle, it could be a condition called BV which needs meds. ...Read more
