Question: I usually would chalk this up to whats been said before, but this is too... painful... to be just chalked up.

My primary PA says that because I am overweight, I will have odd menstrual periods. I chalked it up to that at first... however, now I am getting worried, and trying to find a new dr.

Left sided abd pain, at first I thought it was a kidney infection. I have had clots the size of a quarter this last week. This has been lasting 2 weeks now... and my "period" is not normal... it is intense bright red blood.

Any ideas how to ease the pain, or what it could be, at least until I find a new dr?

Thanks for writing to us.
Blood clots with excess bleeding associated with pain can be due to endometriosis, fibroid of uterus or hormonal imbalance. In all these condition, there is an Estrogen excess in the body. Now it can be associated with excess weight but may not be the only reason. For the pain, you can Tab. Motrin 1 tablet as and when required (upto 4 times daily, not to be repeated before 6 hours)/ For pain management and further characterization of the cause, I would suggest you to see a gynaecologist as soon as possible.
Let me know if you have any more questions
Take care.

My boyfriend is 25 years old and I have been with him for about 7 months. And whenever we have sex, very frequently it seems like he will go limp during the middle of intercourse. And there are times where it seems like we go a month without sexual intercourse. Another thing that seems to grasp my attention is that there will be random times that he gets hard, however normal conventional ways of stimulating him doesn't work. Could this be a sign of some sort of hormonal imbalance or some sort of problem with his heart?

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?

I missed the first 4 pills of my new pack waiting for them in the mail. Finally starting the pack on thursday.i have now been on the BC for 2 weeks. Since then I have had tender nipples and breast, little twinges and crampy feelings in lower abdomin. I have egg white film like discharge that has no odor. Other than early pregnancy, could I have a hormonal imbalance from missing those 4 pills or could it be bacterial vaginosis or what do u think most likely. I have taken several pregnancy tests but all have been negative I think it is too early. Help!!!
