    Vaginal Bleeding

    I had my menstrual cycle this month from February 6th to February 15th. It was a little heavier and lasted longer than usual. My cycle is usually 7 days long. Last night ( February 22nd) I felt some slight burning inside my vagina. Felt as if a UTI was coming on so I drank plenty of water and the pain subsided. Later that night I struggled a little to pass a bowel movement. Shortly after, I noticed I started bleeding from my vagina. There was a blood clot and medium flow bleeding as I wiped myself....

    Period problems, aching body and thyroid (long question)

    Period for 6 weeks and counting...

    I am 44. I have had two children and I had a tubal ligation 11 years ago. My periods are always on time and last 3-4 days. In December my period was two weeks late. Once it finally started It seemed normal until it didn’t stop! It would slow down to spotting and then all of a sudden it would gush! Bright red, huge globs of blood clots and smells different than normal. I went to my doctor who put in for a referral to a gyno but they can’t see me for several more weeks and by then I will have been....

    PCOS and prolonged bleeding on birth control

    Hi all. I am 24 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS and Uterine fibroids last year (around February). My GP wanted me to try birth control to try and regulate my period because I have had super irregular periods since I was about 21, usually skipping 2-3 months and sometimes up to 5 months. I had a little intermediate spotting here or there, but overall super irregular. I tried Marlissa (the oral contraceptive with estrogen and progestin) last year starting in May. I was on my period for a month....

    18 day long period???

    I am 24 years old. For the past several years my period has been regular. It comes on time and leaves after usually 7 days. This time however, it has been 18 days where most of them I have had heavy bleeding. I don't take any medication regularly but I have tried ibuprofen a couple of days during this stretch. On the days I take ibuprofen, my period gets lighter, but once I stop taking it, my period is heavy again. I have not had any cramping or any pain at all. During the first week of this....

    IUD 2 years and now bleeding?

    Ive gone two years without a period with my IUD, nothing at all. Ive been cramping up for over a month straight everyday and yesterday i started bleeding like a regular period again.

Im nervous its cysts or fibroids or ectopic pregnancy or my iud has lodged itself somewhere. When i got the ultrasound i wasnt bleeding.....

    Sudden menstrual changes

    So, i started exercising and dieting mid-august, and september i had my first very light period. I have been on the pill for about 5 years and my period comes like clockwork. Its never been painful or heavy. But, now its just heavy abdominal and lower back pain and extreme nausea, and its super light flow. I was assuming its just from heavy weight lifting and losing a decent amount of weight, but now im a bit concerned it could be something else. And i am not pregnant! Ive taken a few tests over....

    No period for 4 months, not pregnant

    Hello, I was writing because I haven’t had a period for 4 months in a row.. I will bleed very lightly here and there and go put on a pad but then the blood is gone..

I was wondering if they can be connected? I’m not pregnant and not on any birth control

    Femelife Fertility

    Does diet affect fertility? Obesity has been clearly linked to impaired sperm production. Overweight men interested in optimizing fertility should attempt to attain an ideal body weight.

Fruits and vegetables also provide a natural source of antioxidants and should be part of a balanced and healthy diet. Maintaining an ideal weight avoids PCOS....
