    Thickened uterine lining, cause for concern?

    I'm 71 and went through menopause when I was about 50. I do not have any history of bleeding. I have lower body swelling - belly, hips, thighs, buttocks - for which MDs can find no reason. It came on suddenly and immediately with a severe allergic reaction to a topical ointment ~ 2 years ago. The swelling never went away. I am quite overweight but otherwise healthy and take no meds. I've had vaginal ultrasounds as part of the MD's attempt to find the cause of the swelling. Two years ago....

    Tilted Uterus

    Evening. I’m concerned about my “tilted uterus” per my OB. Little history. 36 with 3 kids. Tubal ligation for approximately 12 years. I had a tubal ligation reversal March 2017. Conceived in November of the same year to only lose the pregnancy about 3 weeks later. Sometime in February-March I noticed a foul odor post sex with brown discharge accompanying it. I have taken trips to the ER and my OB for it - multiple times- for them to tell me it’s “normal” due to my tilted uterus. I’ve been given no....

    Weird vaginal stuff

    I've had weird mostly small thin stringy black stuff coming out of my vagina, like a VERY light flow. Which I figured was probably old uterus lining or something related to that, but there's also big chunks bigger than the last digit of my index finger. What inthe world is it? It's been happening for like a week now

    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....

    Perimenopause or???

He has put me on Tranexamic acid and....

    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....

    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....

    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)
