    Possible ovarian cyst

    Hello everyone. For the last couple months I’ve had dizzy spells. And at first I didn’t think much of it, because dizziness around the time I get my period is somewhat common for me. But lately, I’ve had a dull, almost constant pain on my lower right side, a dull pain on that same side during sex, and for some reason heartburn that comes and goes, which I’ve never experienced before. And occasional pink spotting in between my periods, sometimes accompanied by the dizziness. Also, this last time I....

    Thickened uterine lining, cause for concern?

    I'm 71 and went through menopause when I was about 50. I do not have any history of bleeding. I have lower body swelling - belly, hips, thighs, buttocks - for which MDs can find no reason. It came on suddenly and immediately with a severe allergic reaction to a topical ointment ~ 2 years ago. The swelling never went away. I am quite overweight but otherwise healthy and take no meds. I've had vaginal ultrasounds as part of the MD's attempt to find the cause of the swelling. Two years ago....

    Just an introduction

    I am interested in meeting other women, possibly my age or close, 65, but mostly want to talk about my health issues. Today I am starting on 2 medications and 1 supplement of Vit. D3. I hate taking pills because many seem to give me worse side-effects than whatever is bothering me. But I've felt so tired lately I finally saw my doctor, and after an upper GI, then blood tests (full workup I think it was called) I now start Lipitor for high cholestrol, and Synthroid for under-active thyroid. I....

    My girlfriend is in her monthly pain. How can I help her?

    Every month, my girlfriend is always having a hard time dealing with her period cramps. And when she does, she keeps on lying on the bed whole day while pressing her belly or whatever that is. She doesn’t want to talk to everyone. Whenever she’s like that, I could really say that it’s very painful. Right now, she’s having painful cramps. After our ski trip earlier here in Ukraine, she had her period and it was bad, really. I wanna bring her to the hospital but she says it’s normal and I don’t think....

    Missed period by period symptoms

    I stopped taking my birth control a month ago and was supposed to get my period this past week. It is several days late and has still not yet arrived. However, I am feeling period symptoms, bloating, increased secretions, and it feels like I am bleeding but when I check there is nothing. I am not sure if it is post pill amenorrhea and if you would even have symptoms of your period coming with this. Has anyone had any experiences like this, ideas what may be causing this, or ways to help your period....

    Lower abdominal pain and no period for 6 months

    Hi guys. So, I'm a 20 year old female and for the past almost 2 years my menstrual cycle has been extremely irregular. My most recent period was in late November. They used to come every 3 months, but it has just gotten worse. I have also been having lower abdominal pain on my right side for the past 5 months. I went to the ER back in March and they found a cyst on my ovary about 2.5 cm. The pain was unbearable. I went back to the ER on June 5th because the pain was back and there was no cyst....

    Really stupid question...

    *sigh* My boyfriend and I were experimenting with wax (which we've done before with no issues) a couple hours ago, and I noticed immediately after our session that I had a small blister on my finger. The wax mostly made contact with my breasts/nipples and so far, I don't see any blistering anywhere else besides the tiny one on my finger. My question is, if I found a blister on my finger immediately after washing up, what are the chances something will happen to my breasts? Am I in the clear....
