User :   she has started with periods
Doctor :   ok

User :   small discharge like on 3rd or 4th day
User :   is it normal
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   when was her last menstrual periods?
User :   what to do?
User :   10 days before
Doctor :   ok. in that case what she is having is normal
Doctor :   i will explain
User :   ok
User :   till when this will continue
Doctor :   if she is on her 10th day of cycle, the endometruim will not be as thick as the entire cycle
User :   ok
User :   then
Doctor :   so when she takes the ECP , it will work by making the endometruim shed
User :   ok
Doctor :   so if there is not much of endometruim, then the bleeding and shedding will be less
User :   ok
Doctor :   if the pain and the bleeding is continuing
User :   hmm
Doctor :   then what I recommend is to take a pelvic scan
Doctor :   to see if the entire uterus is empty or not
User :   till how many day i have to check
User :   today is 2nd day
User :   ok
User :   ?
Doctor :   as any tissue left behind will cause bleeding and pain, as the uterus will try to get rid of it
User :   ok
Doctor :   wait for 2 more days, if she is not better with the pain, or is getting worse in another half a days time
Doctor :   then get further work up done to see if stil anything is there in uterus or not
User :   she is feeling like normal periods
User :   the pain is not so much
Doctor :   or if the pregnancy is happened in the tubes
Doctor :   if the pregnancy is happened in the tubes , th epain will worsen
User :   hmm
Doctor :   ok, then just wait and watch
User :   ok.. iwill wait till 2 more days
Doctor :   she should be fine in next 2-3 days time
User :   thanks.. doctor.
Doctor :   if not she will require a thorough examination
User :   i hope for the best
Doctor :   and a pelvic scan
User :   ok
Doctor :   wait for her next regular periods.
Doctor :   which wil also be a bit disturbed due to
Doctor :   hormonal change
User :   ok
Doctor :   as she took the ECP
Doctor :   so be prepared for it.
User :   ok
Doctor :   and if she gets more pain or very much delayed periods , say more than 10 days of delay,
Doctor :   then report to her gynecologist
User :   fine
Doctor :   and get a scan done again
