Sex uncomfortable, slight odor, pelvic cramps. I have a IUD I've been to my obgyn she says everything is fine even tried to douche what else can I do?

Consider 2nd opinion: Though I don't usually like to recommend going over your primary doctor- in this case if you've presented this same information to your OB/GYN and the best they can offer is to tell you everything is fine when you are uncomfortable and no workup has been done...well, I would say you're within bounds to get a 2nd opinion on the situation.

Cyst can be controlled by birth control pills so you have options to consider with a doctor. Don't ignore the pain. If it's bad enough, you should go to the nearest emergency room. ...Read more

Can pcos be managed through diet? I've tried several types of bc pills but all make me horribly sick. Having nasty pelvic cramps and pain in thighs

Simple answer, no: Hi. Patients with PCOS are insulin resistant and at risk for type 2 diabetes. Of course, diet does play a prominent role in preventing at risk people from developing type 2 diabetes. However, regarding the cardinal features of PCOS, hirsutism and anovulation/oligomenorrhea, diet does not play a role. Of course, we recommend healthy diet and regular exercise for a million and one good reasons. ...Read more
