Doctor insights on:
No period 4 months. Negative urine & blood pregnancy tests. Negative pcos. Cramp when due, just no period. My Doctors don't seem to give me help.
Should investigate.: If you've had regular periods and they've stopped suddenly (secondary amenorrhea), you need an evaluation. If your doctors won't investigate (if they're dismissive of your concerns), then find new doctors. I wouldn't think cancer first and foremost in this context, but you do need an answer. ...Read more
3months no period, 3 hpt all pos. Had ovarian cyst that gave off false positive b4, is it possible its happenig again???
Ttc 16days over due period Gyno did US thickened endremetrium urine tes neg some symptoms of preg. Gyno asked to see me after a week is it pregnancy?
Went to Gyno for a pap smear, ultrasound & STD tests. Everything came back negative. He said Im fine & blood is clear but he didnt test for syphilis?
Probably OK: STD testing often includes syphilis. But in some situations it doesn't matter. Except in special circumstances, syphilis is very rare in most heterosexuals in the US and other industrialized countries, especially at your age of 18. So most likely you aren't at risk. But if you think you're at risk or would like reassurance, it shouldn't be a big deal to be tested. Ask your doctor about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can lab tech make mistakeI went to planned parenthood for Pap smear on lab it says I tested postive but the doc told me negative should I draw blood ?
Some questions: What did the lab result say you tested positive for? Some labs will have a category labeled "positive" on their reports which lists anything found even if no significance for cervical cancer. So if other cells or organisms (fungi/yeast) are seen it may be reported "positive". Or perhaps you are talking about the HPV part--blood tests likely not helpful. Ask your doc to clarify/repeat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Late period,tissue like discharge when period came,really bad cramps,2 positive preg test + 3 negative. Didn't go docs as was away what's wrong?
Positive to negative: If a woman's pregnancy tests go from positive to negative, and confirmed in this case by having 2 positives and then 3 negatives, it means she was pregnant and then the pregnancy ended. This usually is a very early miscarriage, which is not uncommon in normal women. One can call her Ob-Gyn doctor during regular clinic hours, to see if any follow-up is needed in her particular case. ...Read more

What age should u start going to a gyno? Im 19 technically still a virgin (only done stuff with a girl but nothing oral) Really Nervous gynos scare me
Depends: The need and recommendations vary. Most consider need by the age 21, or after the start of any partner sex.The gyno's have special equipment available to modify the exams in virginal patients. Sometimes a call to the office for a talk with the nursing staff can provide enough info that you will be more comfortable. If you have the equipment, you better look after it. ...Read more

Call the doctor: If no word from the doctor 2 weeks after a test, one can call the doctor's office, because the results are surely back at the office by then. If the doctor uses electronic medical records, one may be able to look at the results online, if one has registered for online access. ...Read more
26.3mm uterine lining in a 31yr old female. Bloodwork great and pap clear and no hpv negative. Gyn just wants me to start on birthcontrol pills. ?
Have serious and valid concerns about endometriosis, finally saw a gyn he didn't listen or examine me but told me i looked fine. Is this legal?
Medical record: Review your records. If he recorded that no gyn exam was done, there may not be a "legal" issue -- but a medical board may find that this was not usual & customary standard of practice. If he documented an exam but did not actually do one, that would be illegal. With your complaints, most gyn's seeing you for the 1st time would have done a complete exam -- unless it was scheduled for later. ...Read more
Some doctors say HPV Can leave the body and some say no. Whom should I believe?! All gyno too. Proper Pap test & no intercourse. Help plz. Thanks
It's moot: I think it's always there but may become undetectable. The real issue is simply that you follow up as recommended on any abnormalities involving the pap smear, HPV assays and so forth. No one gets through life without picking up a few things, or having a few mishaps. HPV used to kill millions of women; now deaths are rare thanks to our science. Take advantage of it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Happens sometimes: A regular period could occur every 21 to 35 days. Periods rarely start on the same exact day every month. Sometimes they are few days off and still be normal. Because you are so young, your hormonal system has not matured and you are more likely to have irregular periods but they will get more regular as you get older. As long as you are not pregnant and are on reliable birth control don't worry. ...Read more
