Anon_176894, thank you for sharing this very important tip! I know when we're talking to our daughters (or sons) about intimate matters, you can feel relieved to have the talk over, but it may not be enough.
I agree with you 100% that a demonstration is in order along with an explanation. You may want to use the diagram on the insert that comes with the tampon to help as another visual aid. Don't let some well-meaning teen or tween give possibly inaccurate or faulty instructions to your child.
I am so glad this turned out to be the right decision for you and you're feeling so much better. I'm sure it was concerning for you with your history of breast cancer and them finding pre-cancerous cells.
Thank you everyone for having a respectful and intelligent discussion around such a difficult topic. None of us can make a decision for another on elective hysterectomy. Each choice is personal and right for that unique person.
While you can feel to describe what you have personally experienced or studied, but that does not mean anyone else is obliged to choose the same option you did, or you wish you had chosen.
I appreciate everyone leaving room for all opinions in this thread and continuing to treat one another with respect.
Hopefully one day Jrybock and any other members facing this decision, will write back and let us know what they decided and if they're satisfied with the outcome.
I am sorry to hear about your pain and numbness. ER doctors are not women's health or pelvic pain specialists, which is why I think you should get seen by your OB/GYN as soon as possible so you can get some answers and start feeling better.
I always have pain with ovulation, and my doctor called it Mittelschmerz , which is a German word meaning "middle pain." This article says in part, "The pain of ovulation can range from a mild twinge to severe discomfort and usually lasts from minutes to hours. It is generally felt on one side of the abdomen and may vary each month, depending on which ovary is releasing the egg during that cycle. In some cases, a small amount of vaginal bleeding or discharge may occur..."
I don't know if this is what you're experiencing, but a visit to your doctor will be able to determine that. Whatever the cause for your pain, a diagnosis and treatment plan from your doctor should help you start to feel better.
Some of our members may jump in and share their stories with you, too.
Hello and welcome. I am sorry to hear about your problems with stomach and back pains. It's good that you went to a different facility and they did an ultrasound of your gallbladder and they found your liver issue.
April 20th is next Wednesday, and the doctor at the health center should be able to answer your questions. You may want to write them down so you don't forget. If you get worse before then, I would encourage you to return and get seen sooner.
Since it's Friday and after office hours, you may need to wait until Monday to start calling around to find an appointment earlier than the 20th. Sometimes you can ask an office to put you on a waiting list in case someone ahead of you cancels their appointment.
I'd suggest trying an endocrinologist. They're the specialists at all things hormone, and I think your questioning the hormone level results bears further investigation. This way, hopefully you can get the answers you seek.
Here's a link to some information on Placenta Previa . You did not take your doctor's advice about not having a fifth baby, so now you need to communicate closely with your doctor about what your current situation means for you and your baby.
Your doctor may want to move you to a high-risk specialist, but again, this is a conversation you need to have with your doctor.
Posts look neater, and have less funny characters or symbols if you post them into Notepad or a text editor first, rather than a word processing program. The coding from the word processing programs conflicts and creates the strangeness.View Thread
