Avatar n tn I know that hormonal imbalance can cause a lot of problems, including depression and weight gain. At 37, you might be experiening perimenopause and might be going through early menopause??? This site seems to have a lot of information. It might help. Also, I would drive as far as I needed to drive to see a doctor. (yes...another doctor...) Don't mess around...MAKE YOURSELF FIND A GREAT DOCTOR!
480331 tn?1310407129 I never dealt with it personally, but I know a lot of women who have and it can be devastating. I wish more doctors would start discussing the signs and symptoms early in pregnancy so that women know what to look for.
Avatar n tn If you did ovulate and conception occured, it would take another 9-10 days before you would be able to get a positive result on a HPT (home pregnancy test). Below are symptoms of early pregnancy: Implantation Bleeding: Implantation bleeding can be one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms. About 6-12 days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. Some women will experience spotting as well as some cramping.

Avatar f tn the 1st time i was pregnant, i had a white discharge in leiu of a period for 2 months....with this pregnancy, i had the same thing...a period in dec, then the discharge in jan, feb, march....maybe even april, but idk.....however, sometimes it can be the discharge you have while ovulating, or an infection.....does it smell, burn/itch?
Avatar n tn Every month i have symptoms like breast tenderness,tiredness,digestive problems,bloating and twinges in lower abdomen for about a week prior to my period.All of these symptoms resemble early pregnancy symptoms.Since i have been ttc,it becomes very difficult for me to understand during the two week wait.Kindly share your opinions.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn A year and a half ago at the age of 30, I suffered a psychotic breakdown followed by severe depression. I haven't experinced psychotic symptoms in about a year now but still suffer with the depression that is somewhat controlled by medication. My question is, why would a person who has never had mental problems before (except some generalized aniexty since early twenties) have a psychotic break then suffer terrible depression as a residual result?
1130576 tn?1260154370 Complicating the picture, however, is the fact that a large number of children and adolescents suffering from depression have other associated psychiatric illnesses such as anxiety, disruptive behaviour and drug abuse. The symptoms of depression among this group remain largely the same as in an adult group; however, most of the manifestations due to the illness pertain to adjustment with peers and friends, problems in school, and indifferent or deteriorating scholastic performance.
Avatar n tn Even though everyone around me warns me that early pregnancy depression is very common, and that they got over it and so can I. Thank you all. I will keep you posted on what I decide. I am taking really good care of myself and next week i have my first doctor's appointment. So while it is in me, I will embrace it and care for it with all of me despite my worries. thanks again.
147803 tn?1234403260 also i forgot to include that i dont hardly have any symptoms like i did with my last pregnancy...i have the occasional heartburn and nausea (mostly at night), frequent trips to potty, and tiredness...i heard that all pregnancies are different, but is this normal? Maybe I have just read TOO much info on the internet and making to much of it!
Avatar n tn period symptoms and pregnancy symptoms are pretty much the same. it is not unusual to be a few days late. i just got my period this morning and i was expecting it 3 days ago. i am usually regular/on time. i had all the mentioned above symptoms and i questioned in my i pregnant? then i said, wait a minute, my husband and i didnt have sex for a whole month so it cant be that! you probably have period symptoms if HPT is negative.
Avatar f tn I went off of it in my early pregnancy. I'm almost 34 wks and the past 3 weeks have been emotional hell. I cannot wait to take that pill the.moment my doc sews me back up!
Avatar f tn I meant to add that my depression symptoms have increased since job loss three months ago and I am not sure if this strange period could also be a result of increased anxiety and stress
Avatar f tn He or she will ask you specifically how you are doing emotionally. Exhaustion, moodiness, inability to concentrate are all common in early motherhood. It's the degree to which you are feeling these things that sets postpartum depression apart from the usual blues. Can you be more specific about what you're experiencing? Do you have any suicidal thoughts, irrational thoughts, thoughts of harming your baby, or delusional thinking? Best wishes.
Avatar n tn I was disappointed, of course, but was grateful it happened so early and ready to try again. It is now almost a month later and this past week I have been thrown a major curveball with extreme fatigue, tendency to cry at any moment with no good reason, a sense of "hopelessness" meaning my job seems unsatisfying, I don't want to go anywhere, etc. I feel like a total wreck. I'm not sure how normal this is after having felt very stable in handling things the first few weeks.

Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
Avatar n tn These studies have demonstrated that consuming Tyrosine enhances the production of neurotransmitters and may, in fact, alleviate certain symptoms of depression and improve alertness and focus. Also, studies performed by the military have shown that consuming a L-Tyrosine supplement may enhance cognitive performance. What doses of Tyrosine should be taken? There are no definitive studies showing what doses of L-Tyrosine are most effective.
Avatar f tn 30 everyday,i had to force myself out of bed by 11:30, this is rare for me,other than that I just feel bloated every once in a while and I've only felt nausea twice. it would make feel better knowing that some of you have the same symptoms. Last time we had intercourse was 2 Weeks prior to the mc.
Avatar f tn Antidepressants -- are they safe during pregnancy? * Depression (major depression) * Antidepressants -- Selecting one that's right for you Antidepressant medication is just one part of the equation in addressing women's mental health during pregnancy, notes Oberlander, who says depression in pregnancy is a "huge public health issue" with lasting implications for women and their children.
1017158 tn?1257734240 So I am prepared medically! I have rapid cycling bipolar an although I am stable i still have symptoms. My husband and I have been trying for 2 months (early days), but my cycle is very unpredictable so I am having difficulty with predicting ouvulation. I did the urine ovulation tests last month - but they didn't seem to work to well. I am very anxious already and am wondering of other mums or mum-to-be that have bipolar/ anxiety/ depression etc and how you are coping.
Avatar f tn So I became BP and my mood is up and down all the time. So seemingly since its depression mainly without reverting to mania then it's depression. I read once that there are 5 main psychic illnesses: schitzophrenia, bipolarity, anxiety (usually common to all) and panic, OCD and finally depression. So you can get depression only and of course anxiety is a common denominator to all of them. But in the end it's the pdoc who will diagnose it.
603509 tn?1220307910 I was one of those people who thought depression was for only the people you saw on TV that couldn't function throughout the day or even speak! That to me was completely loony. I have never knew of anyone with this issue. So I have lived the last 16 yrs. of my life with depression and didn't know what was wrong with me. I just knew that I wasn't like everyone else certain days or months. What happened to me was that early on I would have these feelings? - I don't know why?
648913 tn?1224034193 Reading the archives, I've found most members' doctors will suggest you treat regardless of whether your liver is healthy or not; or whether you have HCV symptoms or not. I have no HCV symptoms and my biopsy showed a good liver (like yours), and fortunately, my specialist has a bit of different view, at least in my case. Suggesting I take the time to start our family, get a biopsy in a three years, and see where I stand.
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain. Last time I was put on bed rest at 8 1/2 months and that was torture for my sciatica nerve. I'm trying to stay active and strong. I've been going through physical therapy and things of that nature.
Avatar n tn Ok, so I have read all of the comments by everyone and only a few have actually confirmed anything. I am on the mirena & having pregnancy symptoms too, and my breasts are leaking. If these really are symptoms of having the mirena, they should really do more research and warn women before they decide to have it inserted because this is ridiculous. I have twin 21 month olds and a 4 month me I have not forgotten what it feels like to be pregnant, and this is it!
