transvaginal ultrasounds really are a simple and painless procedure. If there is a suspicion of ovarian cysts or fibroids--this procedure is a good way to detect it. I just had one this week. It honestly felt no different than having a yearly gyno exam. I understand if you are a virgin there would be potentially more discomfort.
my gyno is really sensitive and so is the tech who preformed the ultrasound. I wore a dress and didn't have to disrobe except for removing my underwear (obviously).View Thread
a heavy period for three weeks and not feeling well merits a call to your gyno/doctor. I have known women on the shot before and I have heard the reverse...no period. you mention her hemoglobin--so you were to a doctor? what did he/she say?View Thread
perhaps it is your own secretions but they have been temporarily altered by the pH imbalance from the yeast infection. I would recommend taking some baths (mild soap). if the issue persists, talk to your gyno. she can do an examination and determine if the "white stuff" is a normal secretion, part of an infection, or part of the cream (though I doubt that).View Thread
honestly, the first thing that comes to mind is that you may be passing a small kidney stone. that would explain microscopic blood in your urine and lower back pain. I don't want to give the impression that is the diagnosis, but it could be a possibility.View Thread
I can say that woman can feel bladder pressure after giving birth...not necessarily pain, but pressure. are you eating enough? are you breast feeding your baby? Are you possibly not getting enough to eat to compensate? what also comes to mind is an iron deficiency (not the bladder/stomach issues but the light headedness). A doctor can determine this by some routine blood work.View Thread
I wouldn't jump to the conclusion you had a miscarriage. periods can be vastly different from one month to another (even with bc). and since you were taking bc everyday (skipping placebo week I assume), well, maybe that could affect your period. you may want to visit your doctor. he/she can make sure (if it was a miscarriage) that everything was expelled...and offer advice/suggestions on a different birth control.View Thread
have you been getting your period? By the time women feel "kicks" from pregnancy they will almost always test positive (feeling kicks means you would be fairly far along). I am not saying there are never exceptions--but unlikely you are pregnant. If you truly want to rule out pregnancy...go to your doctor. he/she can give you a blood test that is more definitive than a urine pregnancy test.View Thread
