Got period after 4mo and it lasted 11 days, which never happens. I've been experiencing dull uncomfortable on/off pain by my uterus. What could it be?

Possible PCOS: If you are going a long time between periods, more than 35 days, you may not be ovulating every month. This can be a sign of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Your gyn can perform some blood tests and possibly a sonogram to confirm this. When you've gone a long time between periods, it is not unusual for them to last longer and/or be heavier. Good luck. ...Read more

I currently have the 10-year IUD. I have had it going on 6 years now. Last week I began to feel a faint vibration in my uterus. What could this be?

Uterine vibration???: That's a new one to me. It is often difficult to isolate the source of a sensation in the abdominal area, and a vibration sensation in the lower mid abdomen could be from bowel, bladder or uterus, etc. A fetus that is moving will cause a slight tapping motion, and if you are worried about that, please do a pregnancy test. If the sensation is not painful and not constant, OK to give it some time ...Read more

Pregnancy problem: Usually women begin feeling their baby move at 16-18 weeks with second and subsequent babies. First time pregnant women usually start having that at 18-20 weeks.

I went for an ultrasound and they said I have water in my uterus. What could this mean? What type of doctor shouldi see? I have an appointment with my gynocologist in two weeks is this the best type of doctor to go to. Also, the reason they did the ultraso

Hello. : Hello. This is being answered by a psychiatrist. I am not sure, but I believe that what is being called water in the uterus may well be a fluid build up in your endometrium (lining of uterus). I would call your doctor's office to get more information. I am assuming by the way that this is written that you are not pregnant. If you are, that is a different matter. Sometimes this can be caused my infection. Sometimes it can be caused by malignancy. Your doctor should be able to give you a better idea in the context of your medical history. If there is concern, your doctor could do an enodometrial biopsy. Take care. ...Read more

Why could dr not get uterus sample now have to have hystercospe?

Why could dr not get uterus sample now have to have hystercospe?

Hard to say: If your doctor tried to get a sample of the endometrium (an endometrial biopsy) in the office, and wasn't able to (possibly because the cervix is too tightly closed; or because it caused too much pain; which are the 2 main reasons I can think of), then doing a hysteroscopy under anesthesia can often allow the cervix to be safely dilated and the sample to be obtained. If cvx was closed: misoprostol. ...Read more

I am having pain in my uterus but I don't know why. What could it be?

I am having pain in my uterus but I don't know why. What could it be?

Ectopic preg./PID.: There are many possibilities, but two of the most important are ectopic pregnancy, and pid or pelvic inflammatory disease. Ectopic pregnancy must be ruled out in cases of uterine/pelvic pain, and is due to a fertilized ovum developing in a fallopian tube. This is an emergency. Pid is also possible, but is more chronic, and can result in infertility. Please see your doctor soon to find out. ...Read more

What could I do to get my uterus back to normal they say I have enlargement uterus?

Fibroids: Hi!
The most common reason for a uterus to be enlarged is either adenomyosis or fibroids. Both are non-cancerous conditions that are very common and can develop with age and child bearing. The only way to get rid of these conditions is surgery.
There are some medications that might shrink your uterus temporarily, depending upon how large it is and why.
Be sure to follow up with your doctor!

Can you tell me how could semen go into the uterus?

Can you tell me how could semen go into the uterus?

This is how...: The expected coagulated semen will liquefy itself within 15-30 minutes after ejaculation so to allow active mobile sperms to swim up and through cervical canal into uterine cavity, then going to fallopian tube... Competitively striking the awaiting egg to complete their destined mission of fertilization, but only a lucky one gets such job done. ...Read more
