    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....

    Vaginal pain

    I’m a 55 yr old sexually active ( monogamous) woman. I can become “wet” with stimulation, yet my partner and I use lubricant for intercourse. During the past 3 times we’ve had sex, I’ve been experiencing pain internally, the vaginal wall at the front of my pelvic area is very painful upon penetration. It feels rough/raw. After some time, it gets better but when he ejaculates it burns. There is no odor or discharge. I had my cervix removed during my hysterectomy 10 years ago.
  • Post-Menopausal Debilitating Hot Flashes and broken internal "thermostat"

    After battling breast cancer and WINNING, I also had to have a complete hysterectomy (including ovaries), due to the BRCA 2 gene. But now, it's like my body doesn't have a working "thermostat". It starts with a terrible warmth (putting it mildly!) that starts from the inside and gets hotter and hotter until it reaches my skin. My skin then turns very red and every place on my body starts to sweat. It drips from my wrists, inner elbows, behind the knees, ankles, (EVERWHERE!!) My....

    Vaginal fish smell at menopause

    Hello, I wanted to let others know how I completely got rid of my vaginal fishy smell completely at menopause. I went on a keto/alkaline diet and the smell was totally gone in a couple of month. I started taking a detox drink too of lemon, apple cider vinegar, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper in the morning and night. I was given some kefir, a fermented drink, which is similar to yogurt that I grow myself and drink. I got my information from dr.Berg, Dr.Axe and Anne Cabeca. I combined what they....

    Postmenopausal bleeding twice in 3 years - advice please!

    I saw my specialist today after a second episode of post menopausal spotting in 3 years. After the first episode in 2015 I had a left oophorectomy due to a suspicious looking cyst (thankfully it turned out to be benign) and two failed attempts at a hysteroscopy due to stenosis of cervix, which meant endometrium wasnot sampled but on ultrasound it looked ok. A couple of weeks ago I again had some spotting. This time ultrasounds and Pap test all normal, except for fibroids. Hysteroscopy not recommended....

    Waiting for Baby

    Hi, I feel I should share some medical background first. I am a 31 year old female. (Here is the background) I did not have my first period until I was 17 years old. Since then I have probably only had about 10 periods and I feel like that might be too many as I didnt keep track. Still, the times it did come, I could almost always be sure it wouldnt come the next month, or the next, or the next. Sometimes I would litterally have one period a year. Sometimes the one was REALLY heavy, other times it....

    I have been taking Osphena for about 6 weeks for vaginal dryness. My moods seem to be worse and I have gained 7 pounds. I haven't gained weight in like 10 years. I'm also wondering if anyone has joint pain with this medicine.
