Question: Hi, I’m a difficult case. I’m 53, unsure about menopause because I was bleeding daily for a few months. My regular gynecologist could not do a pap smear on me because he could not get to my cervix. I’m told I have a long cervix. He sent me to see a gynecologist oncologist. I had a d and c done in September. My biopsy came back benign but the doctor said I have endometrial hyperplasia. He wanted to put me on birth control pills but I could not do that as I had a blood clot in my left calf from taking birth control pills when I was 21. His new plan of care is to use a Mirena iud. I went to his office last week and he could not get it in. He tried for 30 minutes. At that point I asked if this was really necessary. He said yes because if I don’t I’ll get cancer. He actually said that over and over. He wants me to go to the operating room to put the Mirena in. I really don’t want to do it. Do you think it’s true that I’ll get cancer if I don’t get the Mirena? I realize I’m not in front of you to examine me but I was just wondering what you think. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Mirena will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Endometrial hyperplasia is associated with heavy and irregular bleeding. Persistent hyperplasia can increase your risk of getting an endometrial cancer. The hyperplasia of endometrium and the irregular bleeding episodes that you are having can be controlled using Mirena. Since the hormonal pills are not an option for you mirena is a good option. If this cannot be inserted then endometrial ablation needs to be considered to overcome the hyerplastic endometrium and irregular bleeding.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Bladder issues: leaking pee and a burning sensation during peeing. Dear reader, I am a 17 year old girl experiencing some bladder issues lately. My problems started about 1 1/2 month ago: I noticed I had to go to the toilet a lot, and I also noticed a burning sensation during peeing. I had to change panties quite often as I would find that they got really wet (not because i was aroused, I think it was sticky discharge combined with pee, because it was yellow colored). Also, when I have sex, I constantly have the feeling i have to pee (but that might also be because of the position). Around the time these symptoms occurred I also felt a slightly painful and uncomfortable feeling during sex. I thought I had a bladder infection, but when I tested for that the results came back negative. THen I went to the doctor, who couldn t think of anything else besides a possible yeast infection or STD. I got tested for both, but yet again the results came back negative. The symptoms went away for about a month, however the past few days I noticed that I ve started leaking again. It has come to the point where I have to change panties at least 3 times a day. I noticed that the fluid is very clear and that it is pee. I also feel a burning sensation during peeing and sometimes even when I am just sitting I can just feel some pee leaking out of me. Some extra useful information: -I have been sexually active for some less than 2 years now, have had the same partner all along, never contracted an STD. -Me and my boyfriend have sex without a condom, however I am using birth control pills (have been using then since the start of me becoming sexually active, so almost 2 years now) -Have had a yeast infection a few months ago, had it treated by putting a ball of cream (forgot the name of the thing) inside my vagina for three nights. -I have had a lot of problems with bleeding during intercourse. It started around the 5th time I had sex, and lasted for about 1.5 years. (However, there was a period during the summer of 2011 that I didn t bleed for 2 or 3 months). For the past few months I have not bled, which might have been a result of me changing my birth control pills. -The doctor performed a pap smear on me in April 2011, because of the problems I had with bleeding during sex. the result: I have pap-2 and do have the HPV virus. I am scheduled to undergo another pap smear in November, to see if it has gotten worse or better. -I do perform kegel exercises on a regular basis, and have been doing so even before I started to become sexually active. I do not think that my muscles are the problem. -I did a pregnancy test last month. The result was that I am not pregnant. Thank you for taking the time to try and help me with my problems, I really appreciate it. Also, I would like to note that I live in the Netherlands and English is not my mother tongue. I apologize for any mistakes or unclear explanations, I have tied to state everything as clearly as I could, however I found it a bit difficult. best regards, Roxanne

I been having lower back issues since last October and no doctors seem to able to help. I feel like a heavy weight around my lower mid section . It seems like it s moving but it usually is on my lower back area and sometimes it moves to the left hip area. I have been to chiropractic and been to my primary doctor as wellL. So far nothing helps . What are your thoughts? I have not had a Pap smear in about 6 years ago.
