User :   I took Meprate 10mg for 5 days after the last dose after 5 day yesterday i got my periods. But it was light bleeding but today its ok. is it normal?
                                                  
User :   hello
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
is the bleeding that is happening now similar to your periods?
User :   actually my problem was I have delivered a girl baby on Oct 2009. Till Nov I got bleeding.From Dec to till now I did not get my periods. I am still feeding my baby and also taking lactare to increase the milk supply. Last month 13th I had intercourse with my husband....We used condoms but it teared, I took home pregnancy test yesterday (ie) 18th it was negative so it was 34 daysday after the sex. I consulted with my gyne she asked me to take Meprate 10mg for 5 days 2 times a day. The last dose completed on Thursday,
Doctor :   ok. please let me read it.
User :   not very heavy coming and going
User :   very light
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
what you are having now is the withdrawl bleeding after stopping the Meprate tabs.
User :   mine was a c-section by the way
Doctor :  
ok
User :   my doctor told since it was a c-0section during the delivery they have cleaned my uterus and will not be getting more bleeding
User :   will I be pregnant also because yesterday evening I had vomiting due to indigestion
Doctor :  
yes, that is also correct, you wil need 3-6 months time for the endometrium to get back to normal status
User :   we had a function at home yesterday I ate lots of sweets will the vomiting due to that or will I be pregnannt?
Doctor :   your UPT came back negative and you have started having the withdrawl bleeding after stopping the Meprate tabs also, so its unlikely that you will be pregnant
User :   you mean I am not pregnant?
Doctor :  
if still having doubts, then you can ask your gyne to do a beta HCG blood test you you
User :   my gyne told me that after taking meprtae if i have bleeding which meand I am not prgnant
Doctor :  
which is a standard confirmatory test for pregnancy along with the pelvic scan to show the uterus
Doctor :  
yes, that is what I am also suggesting you that since you started having the withdrawl bleeding after stopping the Meprate tabs also, its unlikely that you will be pregnant
User :   do you think its necessary for me to do as I have started my periods?
Doctor :   it is not necessary to do, it should be done only when in doubt about the pregnancy being present or not.
Doctor :  
have you followed what i have said?
User :   I also chated with doctors earlier from helathcare lagic and they told as i am feeding my baby the chances of pregnany are very less
User :   yes
Doctor :  
i have gone through your earlier chat discussions
Doctor :   i wil try and give a clear picture to you
User :   ok
User :   please if you do so then it would be a great help to me
Doctor :  
since you are breast feeding, you are supposed to have 'lactation amenorrhea' in which there will not be any egg release, suppose you stil do get pregnant due to the hormonal changes, and get pregnant, then the bleeding that happened after taking Meprate wil ensure that the uterus is empty
Doctor :  
still if you do feel that you are having pregnancy symptoms
Doctor :  
i would suggest you to go ahead with doing the beta HCG blood test
Doctor :  
to rule out pregnancy and have peace of mind
User :   do i also need to take scan or blood test is enough?
Doctor :  
I hope now things are clear for you to understand
Doctor :  
blood test itself is enough, if it shows negative then the scan is not necessary
Doctor :  
if it shows positive, then you wil need the scan also
User :   ok when can i take the blood test as i am on 34th day after the sex
Doctor :  
you can take it anytime from now
User :   ok
User :   how I have to go to do the scan and at time during the day
Doctor :  
if you are pregnant it is shown to be positive even after 15 days of having intercourse
User :   sorry for the blood test
Doctor :   if the test comes positive, then you need to do the scan
User :   how I have to go to do the blood test and at time during the day
Doctor :  
and you can request your gyne to prescribe you the test and give you the prescription for it.
Doctor :   it should be a fasting sample
Doctor :  
given early morning
User :   you mean morning before having break fast and coffee
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   what you think about the vomiting I had yesterday
User :   what ever I have its like its sticking in my throat
Doctor :  
mostly it should be due to the indigestion that you said.
Doctor :  
is there stomach or chest discomfort ?
Doctor :  
what did the vomitus contain?
User :   whatever i had for lunch it came
Doctor :  
is there burning sensation in the chest and throat?
User :   yes
Doctor :  
is there stomach or chest discomfort ?
User :   chest discomfort I had yesterday
Doctor :  
ok
User :   still I have the feeling something is sticking in my chest
User :   i took Zintac yesterday night and today morning
Doctor :  
then most probably the vomiting was due to acute gastritis
Doctor :  
you can take Digene syrup
Doctor :  
2 spoons 3 times a day
Doctor :  
you will feel better
Doctor :  
any stress can lead to such symptoms
Doctor :  
and right now you are stresed
User :   I have that problem I don;t know what to say for aepam only if I have that i feel relaxed
User :   yes you are rightr
User :   Digene syrup do i need to take before or after the food?
Doctor :  
the belching, upper stomach discomfort, burning, vomiting, all are symptoms of acute gastriis
Doctor :  
and it is very commonly precipitaed due to stress
Doctor :  
Digene syrup take it 15-20 mins before food
User :   ok since I am bleeding now can i take the blood test
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and keep your diet bland, avoid lot of masala, spices, oil, and fried stuff
User :   ok
Doctor :   yes you can take the blood test, there is no harm in it
User :   ok can I continue lactare for milk suppyl will it affect the bleeding
Doctor :   if you can wait then its better to wait until periods get over
Doctor :   no it wil not affect the bleeding
Doctor :  
you can continue it
User :   and also shall i continue dexorange and shelcal
Doctor :  
as prescribed
Doctor :  
yes you should continue Dexorange and Shelcal

User :   I don't have cramps and stomach pain as i am bleeding
User :   may i know your good name doctor?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :

User :   when the bleeding will become heavier
User :   I think your the one i have chatted lat time too
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
it may not be very heavy for you since the endometrium is not yet normal
Doctor :  
and it is a withdrawl bleeding
Doctor :  
in case the bleeding does become very heavy with clots, report back to your gyne
User :   ok
Doctor :  
as it wil mean that abortion is taking place
Doctor :  
and the uterus wil need cleaning again
User :   is the home pregnancy test are correct
Doctor :  
to prevent complications
Doctor :  
most of the time they are correct, but sometimes false results can happen if the concentration of HCG hormone in urine is less
User :   oh for that will there be any surgery?
Doctor :   no surgery is usually not required
Doctor :  
it will be mild cleaning
User :   ok only medications right
Doctor :  
withg a procedure called D&C
Doctor :  
done by your gyne
Doctor :  
as she knows that you have had a cesarean so she will be gentle
User :   this saturday i am going to meet my gyne what all the questions i need to ask her?
Doctor :  
you can ask her all your doubts that you are having
Doctor :  
and aslo ask her the possibility of inserting IUD
User :   oh D&C i know about it an i am no ready to do that
Doctor :  
for you since you are bleeding
Doctor :
