Blood test: You may wish to get a blood test for HCG level. This would be needed only if you had sex since your last period and the sex was more than 3 weeks ago. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Red and white blood cells in urine. Docs not worried - decided it was endometriosis (without further tests). Should i seek 2nd opinion?

Endometriosis can only be diagnosed by a biopsy or direct visualization (can't biopsy something that you can't see so visualization is required) via laparoscopy. Start with a urine culture; if negative and there is suspicion for endometriosis, see a gynecologist. Best of luck. ...Read more

If I have a transvaginal ultrasound done and they still say nothing is wrong, should I push for a pelvic laprascopy? Have all the symptoms of endometriosis and have had tests done and dr's tell me see nothing wrong. Have very heavy and painful menstruatio
Hmmm, this can be : A tough one. Painful , heavy menses can be remedied with a trial of birth control pills or other forms of hormonal suppression depending on your medical history, etc. Might be best to try this before pursuing laparoscopy. Okay to ask your doctor about their opinion on surgery. Answer will depend on your particular situation. Don't be afraid to bring it up and one can also seek a second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
