User :   im really woried
User :   i wud b grateful if u can help me out
Doctor :   without report it is difficult for me to judge what exactly your problem is, but as you said that you had foul smelling brownish discharge it seems that there is some infection
Doctor :   as you have discontinued the treatment the infection will not subside and the bleeding will continue
Doctor :   you need an antibiotic course for infection, whatever may be the reason behind the bleeding the primary thing at this point is infection which should be treated promptly
Doctor :   and as early as possible
Doctor :   did you follow?
User :   see
User :   now i don have any smell
User :   the discharge has turned to pink
User :   u thR?
User :   hello
Doctor :   yes
User :   i think thers no infection now
Doctor :   plz try to understand each antibiotic has its proper dosage if it is taken in a low dose then once the infection will subside and then it will again come up with more of severity
Doctor :   and if you believe that you dont have infection
User :   ok
User :   so can u tell me what antibiotics i can take for this infection
Doctor :   i will advice you to go for CBC a blood test and tell me the reports, if no signs of infection are found then we will think in different direction
User :   i have done blood test
User :   and i have report
Doctor :   which antibiotics you had taken previously
Doctor :   when?
User :   UCEF
User :   ON 6TH
Doctor :   and IV
User :   AFTER TAT '
Doctor :   do you have report
User :   IT WAS 6.8
Doctor :   plz type it
User :   YES
User :   HB 6.7
User :   RBC COUNT 4.0
User :   PCV 34.5
User :   MCV 81.9
User :   MCH 27.8
User :   MCHC33.9
Doctor :   TOTAL LEUCUCYTE COUNT 0000 is suggestive of infection
User :   MONOCYTES 1
Doctor :   even leucocytes are increased
Doctor :   this report shows that you have infection
User :   OK
User :   now
User :   what shud i do
Doctor :   let me make you understand the complete picture
User :   ok
Doctor :   after delivery there will be discharge that will normally last upto 90 days
User :   ok
Doctor :   it changes its colours with time and is normal
User :   ok
Doctor :   but in your case the bleeding is prolonged as is evident by your blood report that shows anemia
User :   yes
User :   but still my 90 days are not over
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   but you had anemia which indicates blood loss
User :   4 times i bled heavily and with tat blood clots came out
Doctor :   let me make you understand
User :   ok
Doctor :   as you are bleeding continuously which is also evident from your report which shows anemia
Doctor :   it may be due to retained products of pregnancy or clots
Doctor :   or due to some fibroid
User :   ok
Doctor :   or due to some infection
Doctor :   or it is possible that out of these three factors two of them are present
Doctor :   did you follow?
User :   yes
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   now infection is confirmed but either of other two factors are there or not it is not clear
Doctor :   is it ok?
User :   ok
Doctor :   so my suggestion to you is to go for a Sonography at some other clinic and get the report from them which will make it clear that if there is any underlying cause or not
Doctor :   acordingly the further treatment can be planned
User :   i cant go now.. i have done so many scans ..and again they will repeat the same thing
User :   can u tell me what i cna do to become alright and stop this bleedin
User :   i have abdominal pain also
Doctor :   plz try to understand your are having a infection, pain is because of that, if at this stage you were not treted properly and the bleeding is stopped as such then there may be very serious complications that can occur
Doctor :   so you will need to go for the investigations and then the medications can be planned
Doctor :   overlooking the condition can be very serious
Doctor :   the infection can spread to ovaries and other organs of the body
User :   the report i gave u was b4 they gave me iv
Doctor :   and can cause serious damages
User :   i had scan 2 days back
User :   in which the said everthin was ok but there seems 2 be something like a fibroid
Doctor :   thats why i am asking you to go for blood counts and sonography again to confirm the diagnosis
Doctor :   if there is fibroid then you will need hormones
User :   i don need surgery?
User :   here they say surgery
Doctor :   and if there is retained placenta then you will need a different treatment and if infection then antibiotics
Doctor :   it will depend on the size and location of the fibroid
User :   i asked them for d and c
Doctor :   ok
User :   t he said its no ned
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   but go for investigations first it is important
User :   they said its a sub mucosal fibroid
User :   mybe
User :   3*3 is the size
User :   ok
Doctor :   plz confirm the diagnosis first then will plan the treatment
User :   is there any medicine to naturally remove the fibroid or placenta
Doctor :   medications are there for fibroid but they cannot remove it completely
Doctor :   they can control it
User :   im just 25 now
User :   u think thers a chance tat i can have somethin like tat
Doctor :   ok
User :   cos no one inmy famil has ha d it
User :   not my mother or sister
User :   no one
