Period usage

Common Questions and Answers about Period usage


Avatar f tn I had my period about three weeks ago. I had sex and forgot that I had a tampon inside me but it was the last day of my period. I forgot all about the tampon and I started to get a funny smell which I never have infections or problems. Then I was having problems using the bathroom so I think I have a bladder infection. Turns out I had a tampon stuck up inside of me and did forgot all about it.
Avatar n tn I am still about two weeks away from when I should have my period but I have been feeling weird. I have sore nipples and pain in my lower right side of my stomach. Could this be me ovulating? It has been so long since I have had a regular cycle, I don't know what to do or think. Could I already be pregant and not know it? I could use some help because we have been TTC for over a year and it is so frustrating.
Avatar n tn I was just wondering when I should start my next pack of BCPs because last pack I missed the last active pill (it disappeared into my carpet when I dropped it and never found it) and that was on June 2. I started my period on Saturday the 3rd. So now that I totally screwed the schedule up, I don't know when to start my next pack or if I should just skip this month and completely start over next month. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
Avatar f tn On 4/22/08, I received a letter from Cobra, saying, that since I had qualified for Medicare in July,07, that they were dis-qualifying my Cobra benefits, efective July 1,2007 to April 26,2008, making me liable for all bills, which had been pd., during that period. All of the treatments and Doctor appointments that I had during that period, were pre-approved by my Cobra insurance, and they had cashed all of my premium payments. This is going to be a battle, but I am ready to fight!
Avatar m tn The only problem with any of these is that they also have dependency risk, so if you are going to get them, get a small quantity - just enough to get you through the detox period. The Klonopin did help me quite a bit during that first week. Another HUGE help to many in early w/d is exercise. If you get get outside in fresh air and walk (or on a treadmill inside) even for a little bit each day, I think you will feel the difference.
Avatar f tn However she warned me that continuous use of oral contraceptives without break is not at all safe and she advised me to stop them immediately. She also advised me to go for loop insertion and asked me to visit her again when the period comes. I stopped using Mala-D from the same day. During the intervening period from 1st July '09 to 1st August '09 I did not get periods but observed scanty bleeding at very frequent intervals which stopped within half or 1 day. Finally, since two days i.
Avatar m tn 1) I top the guy about 20 minutes and I ejaculated inside him inside the condoms. Without removing out the condom,I continue top him for another 5 minutes to make him cum as well. Should I need to withdraw my penis just after I cum? Did the ejaculated semen weaken the condoms for my subsequent topping and was I safe from HIV infection? 2) I stop the anal topping session without ejaculation and withdraw my penis from his anus. Condoms was taken out by him and he masturbated me then.
Avatar n tn So when I take 2 pills 3 times a day, thats only 3 hours of relief in a 16 hr period because I have been on these meds for years and I have a high tolerence so they dont last too long. So 13 hours im in pain and not able to accomplish any of my daily tasks or do any activities because im laying down to rest my back. I was wondering if its bad for me to take 1 pill at a time like ever other hour that way I am not layin around suffering all day and my paid will be more controlled most the day.
Avatar n tn Would taking antibiotics be able to combat the conditions at this time? Or is a longer period needed? I haven't found any material on the period required for these stds to be responsive to antibiotic treatment. Your response is greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I’m 43 and have a high MELD of 31 and the doctors say I will most likely need a transplant soon. I hear there is a “waiting period” for people who have alcoholic liver disease to get listed. My question is even though my labs etc. will show my past alcohol usage will I have to wait to be listed? How do I prove I am not drinking and haven’t in months? I'm a changed person and I read more and more it’s important to get transplanted while still “healthy”. I am jaundiced and have ascites. INR 3.
Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old female who has had FMS since I was 18 most likely due to trauma (many surgeries on my pancreas as well as gallbladder removal etc in a short period of time-treated as an adult, though I'm a tiny girl). At 16 when the pancreas problems began, I was given Demerol after every surgery (pill form) and through IV during every hospital visit. At times I was given Meperidine instead, or Demerol and Phenergan. At about 18, for the FMS, I was switched to Lortab (Hydrocodone) 5/500.

Avatar n tn For years I took Ortho-Tri-Cyclen with no side effects other than minor mood swings, some bloating and swelling in my breasts before my period. My GP has now suggested that I try Loestrin 20 (Ethinylestradiol 20 mcg, norethisterone acetate 1 mg). Do I even need to be on a low-dose pill and why? Is Loestrin 20 a good pill and what would you recommend doing given the above? I’m afraid my GP is not as well informed on OC.

I take off splint on first week of May but hand discomfort persist with less pain. did i do right thing to take off splint and let nature take the flow to heal my hand? Which physical exercise are suitable for my recent condition? The doctor only heavily emphasize and ban me from carry heavy and overweigh items.
Avatar n tn Is is possible to have withdrawal symptoms ( dizziness mostly) after only 20 days of Celexa usage? I was put on this med for anxiety. I initially took 10mg for 10 days, then 20mg for 10 days. Then, because I didn't like the side effects (jitteriness, dizziness, and low blood pressure), dropped back to 10mg for 2 days, then 5mg for 2 days. Today, I took 2.5mg for the second day. Tomorrow, I plan to take NONE.
Avatar m tn For those people who want to use black cumin, I read in many articles that the black seed becomes effective against powerful resistant viral dieases (such as, HBV) after the usage of at least 6 months. I think this is totally true, because my HBSAG quantitaty result was very high even in the 5th month of the usage. However, after the 6th month, my qHBSAG level dramatically decreased and finally cleared.
211940 tn?1267884866 There is a huge difference between addiction and habituation. If someone is on a narcotic for a prolonged period there will likely (but not) always be some withdrawal if they stop suddenly. This is uncomfortable, but does not lead to the continued use/need once they are off the med. The most common reason that a person may appear to be a drug seeker is that they have severe pain that is INADEQUATELY treated.
Avatar n tn Would a doctor say such? What are some of the long-term effects that could come from long term usage? Over the last 4-5 years(used ephedrine for over a year, previously), I've had some serious side-effects, totally life altering side-effects.
Avatar m tn There is no problem with taking a mild laxative like miralax for that period of time (which is actually a very short period of time). However, it is not normal to get x-rays to look for constipation. Usually you should just go off of frequency of bowel movements, consistency of bowel movements, and whether or not she is having pain, difficulty having bowel movements, bloating, etc. Was she having any problems before she got the flu?
Avatar n tn Most people will develop antibodies to HIV within this period of time. If you test within 3 months of possible exposure and the result is negative, you may want to repeat the test at least 3 months after the possible exposure. Ninety-seven (97) percent of people develop antibodies within the first 3 months after infection. In rare cases, it can take up to 6 months.
Avatar m tn I always have had this anal problem and the scalp problem, from almost ten years now. I don’t know about the other medicines over usage, the doctor never told me. If I have skin cancer, does that mean that the HIV antibody test is unreliable. Should I get a PCR test for HIV, if so which tests should I get?
Avatar f tn Not just for the hydrocodone, but the acetominophen is well past the 4000 mg dose considered to be safe in a 24 hour period. We can offer you all kinds of support here at Medhelp; I'm concerned though, that since your dose is so high right now, going through medical detox might be the best option ASAP. Is this possible for you? If it's not, please post back right away so we can further advise you. Also, how long have you been at this high a dose? Post back, OK? Sandy...
Avatar n tn I have been for a period of 6 months. It was due to extreme anxiety which impaired my perception of the way everything appears. The sky seemed as if it was falling, and colors of the trees and cars were surreal, like a photo that had been exposed before development. That was about 15 years ago. I now can travel to Mobile, AL or Gulfport without much anxiety. I can drive alone. But without the xanax or a benzo, I would be completely home bound again.
Avatar f tn i just have my last period on april 9-13,then this month my period didnt come im so worried so i buy a pregnancy test and its positive,..then i try another one and its i take my urine and give to the hospital and its really friend tell me to use cytomis can i take it oral?im so worried pls...
Avatar n tn I am not sure you are going to listen to anything we have to say. Here is the facts.......You keep doing what you are doing and you are going to lose everything you claim to have......that is a guarantee. Your tolerance will go up and someday you may just not wake up. People die everyday from overdose whether it be accidental or not. Pain meds are not to be taken long term and especially for the reasons you are taking them. Will they hurt your body and organs and memory??
Avatar f tn Often avoids, dislikes, or doesn't want to do things that take a lot of mental effort for a long period of time (such as schoolwork or homework).

Is often forgetful in daily activities. b) exhibited 6 of the following symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity for over 6 months Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat. Often gets up from seat when remaining in seat is expected.
Avatar f tn my period is pretty normal im usually on for 6days but this time on the 6th day it was light but then i put a tampon in and it felt weird so i took it out and now its my 7th day and im bleeding out clots again is that normal? Is there any medical info on it?
Avatar n tn Is there a time period for herpes sores/lesions/bumps to appear? I know if you don't have sores you can be asymptomatic, but is there a time period where it is safe to say if you have it you are assymptomatic?? Also do you think I am at risk for any other STDs besides herpes/warts from this encounter?? Thanks for your time.
