    At 21 i had malignant cells diagnosed via pap smear

    At 21 i had malignant cells diagnosed via pap smear but they were removed via lazer treatment, so far whenever I have a pap smear, results are the same every year. Flora/Organisms: doderlein bacilli present and this is every year. Microscopy results: Satisfactory for evaluation but limited due to thick areas within the smear obscuring individual cellular detail. What does this mean?

    Hot Flashes at Lunch

    I am 54 I have been thru menopause. I still have hot flashes but not as much as I used to but I have been having an issue of having hot flashes at lunchtime. It does not matter where I am, or what I am eating. When I sit down to have lunch I start to have hot flashes. I stop eating and let them subside and as soon as I start eating again they start... NOTE this is only at Lunch. never while I am eating any other time. What could be causing this particular reaction at this time of day?

    16 Day Cycle

    I'm 40 years old, I have fibroids and I was diagnosed with PCOS last September and my GYN put me on the Mini Pill (Ortho Micronor to be specific).

    Perimenopausal

    I am 51 years old, the last few years my periods have been heavier than when I was younger. The last two months, it seemed as though, my period came later (days) then usually. So far this month, I have not had a cycle, but have had all the symptoms; cramps, bloating, back pain, headaches. The regular monthly blahs. But still no cycle. Could I possibly be starting to go into peri-menopause? I have no children and my mother started at 48 years of age.

    Megastrol and Menopause

    I am 44 yrs old and morbidly obese (561 lbs). I have been taking Megastrol for several years to prevent me from having my menstrual cycle because I would have it for several months at a time non-stop. How will I be able to know when I am in menopause? I have had both hot flashes and cold flashes about a year ago.

    Maybe Menopause

    I am 46 yrs old, have had normal periods up until last yr. I started working out, consistently, weights etc. and skipped 2 months. Then it started again, no major issues. This time around, its been 3 months, no period (am not pregnant) but irritability and mood swings abound. No night sweats although sleep is not great. No hot flashes but difficulty in loosing weight. Could this be start of menopause?
