User :   I gave birth to a girl 10 months ago and since i didn't breastfeed for a long time I thought that the milk will eventaully dry out and no more lactose hormone will be secreted..unfortunetly i still have milk which I am taking medication for and at the same time my doctor prescribed me an ovaluation booster medicine. Anyhow I got my period this month because i was negatively tested for pregnancy but the period this time was only for 2 days it started as a dark red to black color and then my secretions are brown. it stopped after two days. i have been having imbalances i feel unbalanced and my head is heavy... my doctor suspected that i may be pregnant but again the result was nagative she was like wait for another week and try again... could it be that i am pregnant and that imbalance feeling i am having is from that or should i go for a specific checkup that could be related to another problem.
Doctor :   Hi Dr XXXXXXX here
Doctor :   let me read your query
User :   yes hello
User :   sure
User :   by the way the medicane i am taking for stopping the milk is dostinex
Doctor :   no, you are in perfect health
Doctor :   there is nothing to worry about pregnaancy, as you have had your period
User :   i feel tired and my head is heavy i just want to close my eyes
User :   yes but this time the period was for 2 days and brown secretions were there
User :   instead of the normal red color we see everytime
Doctor :   medicines given to correct the periods, can cause menstrual flow, to be reduced
Doctor :   and the color to change as u have noticed
User :   the medicine was not to correct the period it was to boost ovluation while taking the medication to stop the milk
Doctor :   i meant the same,
User :   it is called clomid
Doctor :   medicines to boost ovulation ( clomephene citrate = clomid) - causes similar changes
User :   do they causeimbalance feeling i have
User :   you know feeling tired and wanting to sleep and can't concentrate
User :   why would the doctor suspect pregnancy where she told me wait for a week and test again
Doctor :   yes, they are a form of steroid analogue, can can cause such issues
User :   she was like some women are pregnant and could see blood
User :   and if it turns to brownish color it means there is a possibility of pregnancy
User :   how acurate it that
Doctor :   since you are having, breast milk, it indicates, u are secreting a hormone called prolactin, which can prevent pregnancy by itself ( it prevents ovulation)
User :   ok i thought that too but last month i did an ovaluation test and there was an ovaluation
User :   and based on that i tried my odds
Doctor :   the menstrual flow, can be different in different women
Doctor :   you need not worry about that now
Doctor :   do u have morning sickness, nausea, etc ?
User :   what about that uncomfortable feeling i am having
User :   nausea yesterday yes i had it but at night
Doctor :   how long have u had this feeling ?
User :   since almost 5 days back
Doctor :   any running nose, nose blocks, etc ?
User :   there is no headache in the sense but i feel as if there is something heavy on my head
User :   yes
Doctor :   any fever ?
User :   i have sinus
User :   no fever
User :   but now the weather here is perfectly well to trigger any sinus syptoms
Doctor :   then, i think this is related to sinusitis, and not due to pregancy or anything else
User :   is having a blur vision due to the heaviness on my head related to sinus as well
Doctor :   you can find relief, with clarinex , aleeve, and other meds available Over the counter
User :   so i don't need to check for anything regarding pregnancy
Doctor :   collection of secretions in the para nasal sinuses, can cause heaviness of head
Doctor :   no, there is no need
User :   ok so i need to see ent specialist
Doctor :   but, you should use protection and oral contraceptive pills (daily ) or morning after pills to prevent preganancy
User :   when i finish with my prolactine medication and ovluation medication will that feeling also go
Doctor :   you can try the medicines i told initially,
User :   but i am trying for a baby
User :   that is the reason i am taking those medicaitons
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   thats fine,
Doctor :   in that case,
Doctor :   continue clomid, and you will probably concieve by your next periods
User :   ok a quick one
Doctor :   (i meant ovulation cycle)
Doctor :   sure
User :   if my period is every 32 days
User :   does that mean that my ovluation starts from day 17
Doctor :   16th day of your cycle
Doctor :   is the date of your ovulation
User :   ok
User :   how long is ovluation
User :   2 days
Doctor :   1-2 days
