I have sore breasts really bad lower back pain and right hip pain have missed 2 periods and done 2 tests both negative?

Take pain medicine a: You need to go see a doctor to examine you and run some tests to help sort out what is wrong. For now take pain medication, either tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin but they work only for 6-8 hours, so you will have to repeat it 2-3 times a day. It is not uncommon to miss periods if your general health is not good. So you need to see a doctor soon. ...Read more

Confused: Your profile says you are a male, but if you say you are not having periods, I'm thinking you must be female. It is common/normal to not have periods while on Depo-Provera (i am assuming you mean depo-provera). Your back pain is probably not related. ...Read more

Had novasure done in feb 2014 since then no period past couple of month I have spotting lower back pain and bloating?

? PMS: Up to half of the women who receive endometrial ablation with stop having periods; younger women are LESS likely to do so. Getting some monthly spotting and perhaps the associated symptoms of a period would not be unusual at all. Treat for symptom control as you would any period. If heavier bleeding returns or these symptoms persist/new develop, return to your doctor for evaluation. Good wishes! ...Read more

No period since July 7 and lower back pain that travels to my right hip?

Menopause possible: The absence of regular menstruation may or may not signal menopause, but in the right setting it certainly makes it suspicious. Hot flashes, dryness on your skin/eyes and vagina, hair loss, insomnia, mood irritability, and decreased energy are all additional signs of menopause. There is also that remote possibility of pregnancy :) Lower back pain with radiation may mean sciatica unrelated. ...Read more

I'm 32 yrs old, I have lower back pain and pain in the pelvic area and hot flashes with no period, had my tubes tied 10mths ago after having baby #3.

I'm 32 yrs old, I have lower back pain and pain in the pelvic area and hot flashes with no period, had my tubes tied 10mths ago after having baby #3.

This is concerning: This combination of symptoms that you describe concern me. If you were only having hot flashes and no period, I might suspect premature menopause. Lab tests for specific hormones could confirm or refute this. But the low back and pelvic pain need to be evaluated promptly. You might have a uterine or pelvic infection, an ectopic pregnancy or malignancy. Don't wait. ...Read more

Lower back pain, increased appetite, weight gain, very light periods after 3 months no period at all. Frequent urination.

What is the cause?: There are many causes of these symptoms. One is pregnancy. That is easy to test for- could it be the cause? There could be changes with your hormones for other reasons. Either it could be from the ovaries or some other location.

If your home pregnancy test is negative, could be time to see the family doctor, or OB/GYN, or endocrinologist, probably in that order. ...Read more

My sense of smell heightened, 6 days after sex had pinkish brown disharge. Still no period. Sensitive nipples. Mild lower back pain. Restless nights.

Take pregnancy test: You have not really asked a question here, but I'm guessing that you may be concerned about possible pregnancy. If so, you can take a home pregnancy test once you've missed your menstrual period. It will be accurate a week after your missed period -- some are accurate sooner. Or, visit your doctor who can provide a serum test. ...Read more

No period 2 months, negative pregnacy tests, brown spotting for 1day, lower back pain, itchy breasts, Depo-Provera shot 6months 2"shotstotal" can I be prego?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. If negative see your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
