1344131 tn?1276296785 no it does not it can mean ur period is getting off to a slow start i would wait 2 weeks if still no real flow take a hpt or go to doc for a blood pregnancy test
Avatar n tn If this is okay with the doc's office, it might be helpful enough just to slow things down or temporarily halt the flow for a little while.
Avatar n tn is it normal for ur period to stop and start again while menstrating? i got my period on monday and it stop last night with brown blood and what not, like usual, but then it just starting again like 5 min. ago with red clotty blood.
Avatar f tn Since there is a heartbeat and fetal size is where it should be is there any need to be concerned? Could this just be the start of a miscarriage?
Avatar n tn My older sister took the synthetic pills and it stopped her period in her 40's. No one to compare myself to. There are many stories out there but none of them are exactly the same. I believe if there would be other more serious issues she would have caught it in April but I don't know! Please advise!
Avatar f tn Progesterone therapy to jump start a period--can be done monthly or quarterly Oral contraceptive pills Of course there is a fourth category of women who want pregnancy--but I'm assuming that's not your daughter. Hope this information is helpful to you and your daughter--keep listening to her!
Avatar f tn Changes in hormones can cause the heart to act a little odd so you may want to go see your GP to get your thyroid checked and your gyni to get your estrogen/progesterone checked. There are many folks on this forum who get all sorts of crazy ectopics like you. Some get thousands a day others get less, for most it comes and goes but some are dealing with them for months at a time.
929504 tn?1332589534 I would like to hear from anyone who is Hypothyroid and has had/has irregular menstrual cycles that were extended and not stopping. My cycle is always normal/heavy (5-6days) except for this month. My flow lasted 5 days, however I am still bleeding @ day #11. Went to my doc and he checked me out, concluded that it is my hormones (which I figured anyhow), but would like to know what experience other have had with this issue.
Avatar n tn On 9/4, I had bleeding like the start of a menstrual period in the morning. I did not have any cramping at all. In the afternoon I had Hcg, internal exam, and US. Internal exam showed closed cervix, Ultrasound saw "something there" but no heartbeat (would be about 6 weeks 0 days LMP). I haven't had any bleeding since then, although some brownish mucous. Hcgs are 9/4 - 4347 9/6 - 5878 9/8 - 7385 On Monday, one doctor scheduled US for Thursday.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't have my beautiful daughter or be 20 weeks pregnant this time!!!! Try to hang in there and lets hope your start to go up faster!!
Avatar f tn Serious question...im 37wks & ive been having like menstrual period cramps the whole night & followed by a horrible back pain.. Ive also had dome type of discharge but it looks more like water just clear & thin... Could this mean im ready for labor or is it just something normal?? What do i do?
Avatar f tn These episodes would start four days before my period and would continue for sometimes up to a week. After the third night with no sleep I would be exhausted and emotionally a nutcase. That's when the panic attacks started. Of course shortly after that I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. I was prescribed lorazepam which did actually work. But let's face it who can afford to go to work doped up on lorazepam for a week out of every month.
Avatar n tn now I notice it's really bad right before I'm supposed to start...and then during my period...and then just when I think I'm back to normal...it's that time of the month again and it starts all over again....glad to know I'm not alone.

1845665 tn?1318952968 hey hun it totally depends on how heavy the bleeding is its called implantation bleeding at the start of a pregnancy i had it with my first, the bleeding is supost to be light and dark (brownish) this only lasts for a few days and some women get it all was through their pregnancy take a test or see a doc to confirm best wishes
Avatar f tn We really would like her to be able to start 9th grade this September but it is looking more and more like she will spend another year schooling at home. I would greatly appreciate any input you may have.
1379770 tn?1283910277 As crazy as it sounds I can't wait to start the injections because that means we are that much closer to achieving our dream. Although, talk to me after a week of taking them :-) I might have a different opinion. Although the trigger shot scares me.
Avatar f tn on oct 25 we went to hawaii for a week, I usually start my period between the 25th-5th but i didnt start till Nov 12th, I had went to the DR on Nov 9th for a preconception visit and let her know , so i took a pt and it came back neg. she said everything was fine it could of been late due to travel and stress. on the Nov 10 we tryed for conception, and on Nov 12 I finally started my period, it lasted 4 days when on the norm it will last 6 to 7 days.
2189047 tn?1338143481 I'm not aware vitamin D deficiency affects the menstrual cycle. Just to add, magnesium is the most important co factor for vitamin D absorption. If your vitamin D levels are not rising or rising slowly, magnesium deficiency is the first suspect.
432674 tn?1204064978 Okay this might be a little long..I'm going to start by saying that I'm 17-pregnant-and I'm not sure of how far along I am. i found out i was pregnant February 11th, it was quite a shock because I had just had what i thought was my period on February2-8th. Its been verified that I am pregnant. I went to the emergency room on the 12th because I had spot bleed 3days before the 2nd and I still am to this day (feb.26 very light,and reddish-brown).
Avatar n tn I also was in and out of emergency rooms monthly, always centered near the start of my menstrual cycle with very unstable blood pressure that would go from 175/98 clear down to 90/50 in minutes, I had a very slow heart rate averaging only 50 bpm, I had severe headaches, usually on my left side, and wheezing in my chest, I was nauseated for the whole 2 years with diarrhea and constipation alternating. I already have history ibs and a bicuspid aortic valve as well as mitral valve prolapse.
Avatar n tn Is there anyone out there that had a pregnancy that was slow to start and was told they were going to m/c that went on to have a baby?? heres my update: went for ultrasound today nothing found(only 3w3d) have more labs tomorrow. more progesterone shot on Monday cyst on right ovary decreased in size.. wait and see game. could use some good stories to keep our spirits up...
4765947 tn?1358898010 Second, I had a slow thyroid and had pms symptoms for the full time it took to have a period--- so --- I had periods every 3 to 4 months and I'd start pms after two weeks after my menstrual cycle and continue to have it until my period came due to hormones. Third, you need to be seen by a doctor to determine why your periods are so infrequent. Sometimes being signficantly under or over weight can cause that or like in my case, an issue of the thyroid (mine was too slow).
2093372 tn?1473261554 There is no explanation as to why pregnant women feel this, or even a solution as to how to prevent it. However, eating small frequent meals, and snacking on saltine crackers, seems to give some kind of relief. Eating a protein/carbohydrate at bedtime (try an apple and a glass of milk) tends to lessen the nausea that occurs in the morning. Swollen breasts: Your breasts may be very tender, swollen and start to enlarge. Many times the veins within the breast will become more visible.
934213 tn?1244761526 Have you have your hormonal levels checked? I know when I was taking progesterone pills, they seemed to cause light-headedness. And I believe your progesterone goes up to start your period & seratonin dips down (the latter might explain why fish oil, rich in those omega fatty acids that help with seratonin are helpful). So you have had not only your CBC checked, but specifically your iron and ferritin blood levels checked as well?
Avatar n tn I HAD GONE TO HIM BEFORE ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO CAUSE MY PERIOD WOULDN'T STOP AND HE GAVE ME PILLS TO TAKE FOR 10 DAYS, AND IT STOPPED AND NOW THIS MONTH I'VE HAD IT TWICE BUT NEVER A BLOOD CLOT AS BIG AS THIS LAST ONE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT "WELL GOOD IT'S ALL OUT NOW" BUT AFTER I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, I CALLED THE DOC.
Avatar n tn I am having if not all most symptoms of pregnancy it is driving me nuts the headache is terrible oh my! my period is scheduled to start tomorrow I hope I miss it because I do want to be pregnant. my last period was 1/12/2008 should I test on sunday or just I have to assume I am prego since I am exhibiting the classic signs (frequent urination, headache, high tempereture, backache, some cramps, sore breasts, mood swings, fatigue and inpatience...
Avatar n tn YOU CAN HAVE EXTRA JAMMIES READY, AND PAD THE BED WITH PUPPY PADS OR SOMETHING, HOWEVER, MY MD GAVE ME A ESTROGEN PATCH THAT I CAN APPLY THE WEEK BEFORE MY PERIOD IS TO START, AND THAT HELPS SOME. HE SAID IT IS DUE TO THE SUDDEN DROP OFF OF ESTROGEN YOU GET PRIOR TO YOUR PERIOD. IT MAKES SENSE. OH, AND MOST OF THE TIME IF YOU HAVE THE MENOPAUSE TESTING DONE, IT DOESNT SHOW ANY THING BECAUSE, SOME TIMES DURING THIS STAGE, YOU HAVE NORMAL LEVELS AT TIMES.
Avatar n tn I continue to take the iron pills daily, however I stop taking the chasteberry when my period stops though continue to take the iron. So now whenever my period wont start or is continuous I will start up the chasteberry again. Check it out ladies! http://www.aafp.org/afp/20050901/821.
