  • Postmenopause discharge

    "I have been having irregular periods for the past 5 years, I’m 47 and Dr has suspected Perimenopause. My last period was 7/24/17. Three weeks ago after using the bathroom I noticed clear discharge (similar to ovulation) tinged with a small amount of dark discharge (like end of period) That happened twice and stopped.

    Sharp Stabbing Pains

    I am 17 years old and haven't gotten my period for about a year and a half when I decided to get the nexplanon implant. I love it, haven't had any issues. For the past 2 weeks, I've been waking up with very sharp pains near my ovaries and to the right of my naval. They come and go throughout the day and make it hard to stand for a period of time. I've had many people say different things, such as cysts or appendix or gallbladder. I just want answers! Help???

    Prolonged pressure and spotting

    I'm 38, one week before my expected period I got hit with extreme fatigue and nausea. I ended up being 5 days late not pregnant. When I did get it I was in extreme pain. I have never been one to suffer from harsh cramps. But I was literally in bed for 2 days. 9 days later and for the last 4 days I have gone from brown, pink, light red and back to brown, and so on. I expressed my pain and pressure to my Dr at a women's clinic. She didn't exam me. She said "something" happened....

So I had lower abdominal pain and did a trans-vaginal and pelvic ultra sound. Findings: adjacent cysts versus larger cysts with nonvascular septations in right ovary. Small amount of free fluid in pelvic....

    Endometriosis and infertility

    Hi all. I am a 29 year old female in excellent physical health. I eat right and exercise and don't have any other major medical issues than "endometriosis" My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about 4 years.

    Uterine polyps?

    Ok so I always noticed spotting or brown discharge for as long as I could remember between my periods but my mother always told me that is normal. So never thought to question the doctor. The last 2-3 years I noticed like a light period in between my periods. At first I just went to my GP he ordered ultrasound, regular pelvic and transvaginal one. They came back with a possibly mass on my uterus, so my GP sent me back for another TV ultrasound on specific day of my cycle and that one came back normal....

    Need help!

    So in order to help you figure out what's going on, I need to give all the details. My last period started on September 1. I am on birth control, by the way. I missed my last placebo pill on September 2. (My period doesn't start until about Thursday or Friday of the placebo week. It starts on Sunday, fyi). Anyhow my new pack started on September 3 so I just kept going with it...and kept on bleeding right up until September 12! It was supposed to stop a few days after I started my new pack....
