Hav yeast infection (

Probably not yeast: These are not the typical sites for yeast infection and thus it is likely from something else. Pregnancy itself can be associated with unusual skin rash which should subside within 30 days after delivery. If the problem persists and not helped by topical cortisone, see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I am having an endo sweeping. I have a 3-5 CM buildup of the uterine lining.I have never had any other symptoms (no bleeding, cramps, pain, etc.)i am 6o, on bhrt for 20 years.Why would this be needed?

Rule out cancer: A typical postmenopausal endometrial lining measurement should be <4-5 mm because the ovaries are not actively producing hormones to thicken up the lining. Being on hrt with estrogen alone increases the risk of uterine cancer, therefore you should be on both estrogen and Progesterone to reduce this risk. This combination should keep your lining thin. Sometimes a benign polyp can thicken lining. ...Read more

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud. ?

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud. ?

Sometimes one does: see more decidual (lining) tissue than blood in a menstrual period...rarely the whole uterine lining will be passed in one piece...a decidual cast. This will usually be an isolated event, and the next period will have the usual lining mixed with blood. The Skyla IUD is associated with lighter periods as well. If persists/more questions, return to your Doc. Good wishes:) ...Read more

What are symptoms of enlarged uterus? I am in menopause,and I have no bleeding just pressure and I just got checked for bladder infection  and no

Pressure/pain: An enlarged uterus can cause pain and pressure in the pelvis. Your doctor can do a pelvic exam and possibly an ultrasound to see if your uterus is enlarged. If you are having any postmenopausal bleeding then you should be seen right away. There are other things such as colon problems that can cause pressure and you really need to be seen by your doctor to sort this out. ...Read more

Do i need treatment now, no symptoms, 1 yr ago endometrial lining thickened to 39 mm, uterus enlarged to 13 weeks size with lots of small fibroid?

Do i need treatment now, no symptoms, 1 yr ago endometrial lining thickened to 39 mm, uterus enlarged to 13 weeks size with lots of small fibroid?

Maybe: If had a biopsy a year ago and your doctor ruled out cancer as cause of your thickened lining, and you're not having any irregular bleeding, then you might be okay. An endometrial biopsy is only good for 1 year, so it may be time to discuss any uterine conditions with your doctor again. Lots of small fibroids often do not need to be operated on, especially close to menopause. Call dr for appt. ...Read more
