depends: It depends in part on the part of the spine involved. When nerve roots are involved, it usually involves pain, numbness, or weakness along the distribution of the nerve in the arm or leg.

Pain, heavy periods: Adenomyosis is endometriosis in the wall of the uterus. It can make the uterus enlarged, tender and cause heavy, painful periods as well as painful sex.

The only "cure" is to remove the uterus. ...Read more
Fetal demise.: Fetal hemorrhage is rare but potentially lethal. The mother may not have any symptoms (except painless vaginal bleeding in case of ruptured vasa previa) but the fetus can rapidly exsanguinate and die if this dire complication occurs.

Maybe: Hematometra is a collection of blood in the uterine cavity that would make the endometrium appear irregular on ultrasound.

I have/had(?) hematometra and had a D&C to remove the blood. My obgyn doesn't know what caused it. No visible causes, should I be worried?
Hematometra: In many cases, the d&c is enough to cure the problem. Some people just have a narrow cervical opening which can be blocked by anything from inflammation to nothing at all. The d&c opens up this canal, which is the correct treatment if this occurred. Most of the time the hematometra does not come back, especially at your age. There is usually not a visible cause, just a narrow or blocked cervix. ...Read more
Hi Dr I was diagnosed of hematometra of about 312mls. My Doctor prescribed evacuation which was done. Ultrasound after two weeks showed the same ?

Hematometra cervical stenosis postmenopausal Ultrasound no thickening Pelvic pain Should I wait 2C if it resolves w repeatUS 6wks or D & C now Scared?
Act Now.: Hi Debra, If you are in pain, this would push me to recommend acting surgically sooner rather than later. At 60, you should have no accumulation of blood and very little clear fluid or mucous. Even though the Ultrasound said no thickening, I would take the opportunity to sample the lining of the uterus just to make sure. I am sure that everything will turn out fine. ...Read more

Cervical Stenosis Hematometra post menopausal pelvic pain Fibroids.Dr wants 2wait 6wks b4 D and C. No thickening or blood. Can this resolve by itself?
Possibly yes: If your cervix is stenotic, you can accumulate "fluid" in your endometrial cavity which may be mucus, not blood? Bleeding will usually not occur if your cervix is closed The fact that " no thickening" of your endometrium was noted on sonogram is reassuring and means you probably do not have " hematometra" and that the "fluid" may resolve spontaneously in weeks to months.Ask for an office Pipelle ...Read more
