I was married for 22 years. No surgeries or anything. The ONLY person who ever made me smell was my husband. Previous boyfriends never caused an odor when we had intercourse and neither did a man I dated after I was divorced. I would love to know why it was only one person who made me smell. Maybe a chemical reaction between us?View Thread
I had a 3 day long period 10 days ago. Yesterday I spotted very dark brown blood and then this morning a lot of red blood. Put a tampon in thinking it was my period as they've become irregular in the last 6months but later removed it to find it clean. A lot of cramping in the ovaries today and the uterus is also tender, most comfortable lying down. Pain when I urinate also. Not on contraception, have benign ovarian cysts.View Thread

Hello, I am a 60 year old female, who had a total hysterectomy in 2000. I have a slightly distended bladder. Lately i have experienced frequent UTI's. Had one a couple of months ago, and took antibiotics etc. Now i have this constant dull pain in my lower left abdomen that is worse upon movement. When i breath in, it feels very localized. I also have a dull ache in my back on the left side starting around the waist and about midway up. Any suggestion would be appreciated. thank you.View Thread
Background I have been experiencing irregular periods for approximately 4 months. They usually last between 10 - 14 days. After my period is over, it can be anywhere from 5 days to 5 weeks before I begin menstruating again.
I saw my gynecologist earlier today. She performed a vaginal sonogram and confirmed that:
- I do not have any polyps - I have some fibroids, though nothing of great concern - I have low levels of estrogen
She has changed my birth control to a lower dose of estrogen.
1. I believe that my doctor mentioned that low levels of estrogen thin the uterine lining but I am uncertain. Is this correct?
2. Is a blood test normally conducted in this scenario to confirm the level of estrogen, as opposed to relying solely on the vaginal sonogram?
3. If I currently have low levels of estrogen, why should I consider using a form of birth control with a lower dose of estrogen (10 mg) than what I have been taking (20 mg)?
4. Can you recommend any resources that explain what is happening to my body in laymen's terms? I have not yet been able to locate anything helpful.
Any help or insight that anyone can offer here is very appreciated!View Thread

I'm currently using the birth control patch Xulane. I removed the last patch of my cycle late last Monday night (my patch change day is Tuesday, but it kinda fell off and it was close to midnight so I figured it was ok to leave it off). I got my period this past week as expected, and today is Tuesday thus I am supposed to put on the first patch of my next cycle, but I'm snowed in at my grandparents house and won't be able to get to my patches untill tomorrow. Will this negatively effect the strength of my birth control? Do I need to use a backup method for sex? Any help is appreciated!View Thread
