    Painful cramps during sex and missed period

    Hi, I am 18. For the past couple months I have been getting really bad cramps when I have been having sex, usually they happen the week before I get my period. Sometimes they are so bad I cry and yesterday when I got them I almost threw up. I also was supposed to get my period a week ago and haven’t, but am still getting these cramps. I took 2 pregnancy tests and one looks positive but every faint. I’m not sure what to do, any help?

    Sore buttock completely serious

    So this is embarrassing but a few days ago my butt got really sweaty because it's so hot where I live and I spend about 2 hours a day in the car. Well it was sweaty and kind of itchy and I think I scratched it in my sleep. But today (2 days later) right below my tailbone is so sore it hurts to touch it or sit on it. The skin is red and feels like I might have a little swelling on the right side. This is right at the top of the crack. I know I know I'm sorry. I haven't fallen or anything....

    Red Circles on Lower Legs

    I started developing these red circles on my calves (I inserted a photos) as you will see they are pretty much perfect circles, some as big as a quarter and some as small as a freckle. They don't itch, they don't hurt & some are hardly even raised. If I was blind I'd probably never know they were there. I'm can't find any information online and I'm concerned it may have something to do with being on birth control & it's effect on my vascular system, like maybe....

    Help with unbearable period cramps?

    Ever since I started my period at around 14, I’ve had super bad menstrual cramps. I’m 17 now and over the years they just keep getting worse and worse. I’ll take all the OTC pain medicine I can even starting a week before I’ll get my period, and it doesn’t help. The heating pad doesn’t help either, and during my periods especially the first couple days I bleed really heavy and I’m in so much pain that I can’t even get out of bed. My doctor started me on a birth control a couple months ago to help....

    Sharp vaginal pain

    I’ve had PCOS for 4 years now and recently had a miscarriage and underwent two laparoscopic surgeries. Miscarriage was in April 2017, Gallbladder was removed laparoscopically May 2017 & Feb 2018 laparoscopic surgery for stage 1 Endometriosis was performed. It’s been about two to three months since the Endometriosis surgery was performed and I’ve been having on and off light blood in urine and today began to have a stabbing sensation in my vagina/pelvic area. It lasted for about 5 minutes then....

    Endo questions and concerns

    I am 52 yrs old and I have been diagnosed with endometriosis. I had painful periods every other month when I first started. The pain seemed to increase each year and it got to the point of doubled over in the fetal position when I was in my late teens. I joined the service just out of High School and didn’t have a period for three months. Those were the best three months of my life. After that, I had painful periods every month that were increasingly more painful. But I was told to ‘suck it up and....

    Need to clarify

    I am 29 years old. I have had endometriosis since I was a teenager. About 3.5 years ago, a doctor prescribed oral contraceptives to control the pain. I take 3 packs of 21 pills back-back-back followed by a 7 day break. My questions are: 1. Since the past 6 months, I haven't had any bleeding at during the 7 day break. Is this normal? 2. Is it safe to continue with this treatment plan for several years? Thanks

    Pain coming from abdomen on my right side. Possibly from ovaries?

    I’ve had perfect periods since forever. I’ve been on and off birth control pills and I’ve been fine. I decided to try the copper IUD in March 2017 because I was tired of having to remember my pill. Anyways, that was a huge mistake. I had multiple yeast infections and multiple UTIs. I decided to take it out in May 2017 and go back on the pill. Since then, I’ve been on and off the pill. When I’m not taking the pill, I have constant burning pressure pain on the right side of my abdomen. It gets increasingly....
