Brief Answer:
You can get your period within a week.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
You may also get your period with in a week after stopping the drug. So please wait for 4-5 days for your period. Sometimes period may come after 2-3 weeks, so please do not get worried about it.

Yes! white discharge is common after meperate tablet but there are so many reasons for white discharge other then this.

So you can consult a gynaecologist and get your examination and investigation done to rule out the cause of white discharge, if white discharge is excessive in amount and disturbing your routine life.

You can do one more thing for white discharge- maintain proper vaginal hygiene, use cotton undergarments and do not use excessive soap.
I think I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.

Thanks Doctor.

As I mentioned earlier , I skipped one of the doses in between and still went ahead and completed whatever was prescribed for 5 days . So I took over all 14 tablets instead of 15. So should I restart my dose or is it ok If a dose was skipped.

Also my doctor here told me to have birth control pills for next 3 cycles to regulate my periods . Are they harmful.

What could be the causes of the skipping of cycles?

Brief Answer:
No, you should not restart the treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Nice to see you again.
No, there is no need of restarting the course of medicine.
Yes! usually the treatment of skipped cycle in young girl is birth control pills.
As such pills are not harmful but every medicine is having their own side effects.
The most common cause of skipping period in your case is PCOS( polycystic ovarian syndrome).
Other common causes are- excessive exercise, birth control pills, eating habbit,stress and secondary amenorrhea.
I think this information is helpful to you.
If you have further query I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.

Thanks for the reply doctor.
I have couple of other questions.
Does PCOS come and go ? I mean I did a scan on Jan2014 and that time I had PCOs.
In March 2014 since I had spotting before my periods , my doctor told me to redo the tests and that time my scan didnt report PCOS . It said
Impression : anteverted uterus with subserous and intramural fibroid measuring 1.35x1.35 cm
ANd i had took thyro norm and as of pr 2014 my TSH level came to 2.26.

Can the anteverted uterus also cause problems ?

Brief Answer:
Yes! PCOS can go by it's own in some cases.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes! PCOS can go away because it's a lifestyle disease. Change in life style and weight helpful in it's treatment.
You are suffering from hypothyroidism and fibroid as per your description.
Both hypothyroidism and fibroid may also the reason for your skipped period.
Anteverted uterus may causes problem when it is associated with some disease.
So in my opinion you should consult a good gynaecologist and take proper treatment for hypothyroidism and hormonal treatment for your skipped period.
Apart from this you should change your lifestyle also, start doing yoga, eat healthy food and frequent meals, reduce weight also.
If you are having more query I will be happy to help you, otherwise please close the query and rate my answer.
Good luck.

Thanks doctor.

I have a final question.
I am not at all obese. Normal weight. I am 5'3 and weigh 53kgs.
But my stomach tends to bloat often. Is this because of the fibroid/pcod ?
What should I do to tackle this ?

doctor
Answered by Dr. Richa Agarwal 33 minutes later
Brief Answer:
yes! It can be due to fibroid and PCOD also.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Nice to see you!
Yes! fibroid and PCOD can cause abdominal bloating due to hormonal disturbances. mainly due to high estrogen levels.
But there are so many reasons for abdominal bloating other then this.
You can consult a gastroenterologist for your problem.
You can take probiotics, frequent small meal, avoid fatty food, avoid constipation to resolve this problem.
Drink a lot of water and take high fibre diet.
I think this information may be helpful to you.
Good luck.

Hello Doctor,

I did an ultrasound scan and my endometrium thickness is 12.1mm
Its my 10th day after having meprate.
Also the report says bilateral poly cyst ovaries.
Is the endometrial thickness normal ?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Richa Agarwal 18 hours later
Brief Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX Sorry! For delay.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Nice to see you.
Sorry ! for delay, it is due to bad weather and network issue.
Yes! if you are having 12 mm endometrium thickness that means you are having withdrawal bleeding within a week.
In PCOD patient estrogen is more so progesterone is given to compensate progesterone deficiency.
So please do not worry!
Wait and watch for your period to come.
Good luck.

Hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Sorry for inconvenience !
Your scan report is same as you mentioned earlier.
One more thing is there which is not very important but you should aware of it that your uterus is in retroverted position.
Usually it is not an issue but sometimes back pain, leukorrhoea and dysmenorrhea may be due to retroverted uterus.
I think I have answered your questions if you have further questions I will happy to answer it.
Good luck.

Hi, I have had a fluttery feeling in my throat off and on for a couple of weeks and /or palpitations.Also a sensation that there is something in there or in my upper chest. Heart rate is regular, no other symptoms. I am hypothyroid for many years. It is not severe, just bothers me and I worry what it is.

doctor1 MD

I am 32, 5'3" tall, 128 lbs. I've been feeling light-headed and nauseated lately and have been suffering from constipation. I have a bowel movement maybe every three days, and that's with encouragement from prunes or an herbal laxative tea. I also have a very slow metabolism - I consume on the order of 1500-1800 calories a day (I keep a food diary for 2 weeks about every 6 months to make sure I'm on track), but I work out 10-15 hours a week. Hard. Here's my history:

I have hypothyroidism and am on synthroid (50 ug). I'm a Manager/Scientist during the day, but I teach fitness classes as a second job. I exercise quite a bit: I teach kickboxing, sports conditioning, and weighlifting. I'm starting up a bootcamp (once a week) next month. I also race triathlons, so I swim (2500 yds 3 times a week on average), run (6-10 miles 2 times a week on average) and bike (40-60 miles in the Spring-Fall 1.5 times a week; Spin 1+ hours 3 times a week in the Winter). My diet is very healthy. I make most of my meals at home. On a typical day, I eat a hard boiled egg and an orange for breakfast. I have hot organic apple cider with apple cider vinegar (a naturopathic treatment for hypothyroidism) in the morning. I'll have a cup of coffee or a cup of tea later in the day, maybe a second but not usually. I have a yogurt (Activia), usually as a mid-morning snack. Lunch is usually a vegetable - today I had 2 cups of cabbage sauteed in cajun seasoning and coconut oil (another naturopathic remedy for hypothyroidism). I have a piece of fruit in the afternoon, usually an apple. I keep nuts, dried fruit and lean beef jerkey in my cabinet in case I get hungry during the day. I usually do. Dinner is usually 4 oz of protein (fish, chicken or lean beef), at least 2 cups of vegetables, and some fruit for dessert. I cook all of my food in coconut oil. I make my own sugar-free dark chocolate with nuts or organic almond butter, and I'll have one of those for dessert. Some nights, I'll add a spoonful (or two) of almond or cashew butter. Sometimes I'll sneak in a cookie or some nuts. I'm not much of a drinker, maybe 2-3 glasses of wine or beers a week. I drink at least 56 oz of water a day, in addition to the coffee/tea, and what I drink when I work out. I recently lost about 10 lbs on the HCG diet - 10 lbs I'd been trying to lose for the last 10 years. I have a very difficult time maintaining my weight. I thought that the synthroid would solve that, but it hasn't. I don't understand why I'm constipated. The constipation seems to be worse now than ever before. I strain to go, and when I do, it's usually dense, dark, and very hard to pass. Once every three days can't be right. I used to be pretty regular (1x a day). I get a lot of fiber, I exercise, I drink a lot of water. I don't like resorting to the herbal laxative tea. The only other medication I'm on is a very low dose birth control pill, but I've been on oral contraceptives since I was 18, and on this particular one for 2 years. The rest of my medical history is pretty boring - I've had a few athletic injuries and appropriate surgeries, a concussion or two, and I have fibroids that the GYN keeps an eye on. Oh, and I tend to skip menstrual cycles. So what's with the constipation and slow metabolism?

doctor1 MD

I am 66, 5'2" and 155lbs. I developed a fib 2 years ago (now regulated) and was put on an older beta blocker plus I have high blood pressure for which I am now on the 5th different med ...I take 0.137 mg synthroid daily for 30 years, strength has varied over the years from 0.075 to as high as 0.2mg...my tsh, which is the only measurement my physician will consider, is usually 2.5 or thereabouts...in the last few months my hypothyroid symptoms have increased and on the last lab my tsh was very high, over 8 so I know my thyroid level is very low...I am very fatigued, depressed and most upsetting am eating less and getting fatter, where before I was overweight but firm and now I can feel fat in my thighs and upper arms plus around my abdomin which I never had before. Research shows the older type of beta blocker, atenolol, can slow metabolism and cause insulin resistance, (I am not diabetic) is it safe to simply stop one beta blocker and start another...in fact, I'd like to get off it altogether but the last time my physician said to just stop taking it, I developed pvc's which was corrected by increasing the atenolol. I am distressed about the side effects of this drug and wld like to take something less toxic.
