Last week Oct 4 till Oct 10 I had menustration period and I had intercource with my husband on Oct 10.. But not sure which was successfull..

Also we had intercource around 2 to 3 weeks back in Sep also, but again we were not sure it was successfull..

Brief Answer:
Need more information.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
There are few causes of bulky uterus like fibroid, adenomyosis and early pregnancy.
But before giving my opinion I would like to ask you that are you having any associated symptoms and is ultrasound showing anything else other than bulky uterus?
Are you taking any treatment?
Your periods are regular or is it heavy?
Hope to hear from you soon.
Good luck.
Regards

My period is regular but 5 days earlier.. Sometimes I would feel it came again in 15-20 days.. As i didnt noted the day.. I couldnt say it exactly.. But I notified it is comming earlier.. But very rarely it would come one or two days late.. But never delayed neither missed it.. Recently past two three months I feel back pain and tried for first two three days..

I used to have dried channa dhal in the empty stomach to get relief from the pain and would have pomegrant.. But ignored sweets n black grapes to avoid over bleeding n stomach ache..

Apart from that I never take English medicines and didnt consult Dr for this..

And myself n my husband are very rarely doing intercource due to our body condition.. Even in struggle if he could do it.. I felt the fluid went out immediately.. So I felt doubt.. That may not be succeeded.. Not sure abt the logic how it works.. :(

As we do it unusual, I used to forget to support him.. So manually I used to help him to do intercource that moment alone I would feel little pain.. And I felt it is not deeply went and that the reason fluid is comming out.. So I felt our strain is not enough n wld hv no possible of pregnancy.. We would like to consult on this.. But not sure whom should we contact.. Pl give us advice.. Thanks in advance!!

Brief Answer:
It may be due to pregnancy or hormonal changes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Sorry for the delay in my response.
Thanks for the detailed information.
I have gone through your history and maybe bulky uterus is a sign of early pregnancy or it can be due to hormonal changes.
You have to hold your leg up to hold the semen for longer time and consult an infertility expert for your problem.
For bulky uterus you should not take any treatment.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.

My sister just told me that she has a mass measuring 22mm on her uterus. She is an otherwise healthy female 32.5yrs old. About 5 5 and weighs about 155-160lbs. There is a family history on the Maternal side of fibroids and Uterine/ovarian cancer. Is there a correlation between the size and whether or not it is cancerous? Also there has been active bleeding and her doctor is calling for surgery to remove the mass. Obviously I am concerned especially since we do not live close.

I recently had a swollen and hurting breast. I also had a discharge of a milky brown liquid which had blood in it. The swelling & hurting is gone, but I still have a bloody discharge from the breast. I ve had fibroids in my breast for years. Can it be the fibroids bleeding? I had uterian fibroids for which I have a hysterectomy and removed over 10 years ago.

I am 56 and have had scyatic pain and lower groin pain and pain on my left side at my waist in the back. I have all my female parts, (till two days from now) I went to Family Dr with symptoms. Oh yeah I am post menopausal also. He sent me for X rays, and an MRi. I have deteriorating arthritis/ The pain is more intense than childbirth (with no pain meds, I had for deliveries) . I asked him about fibroids because a year earlier while in the hospital with kidney stones, they found a fibroid that measured about a 4cm. could it be growing? he said prob not because I m post menopause and they usually don t grow then. At this time I was into my 3rd month of pain with no help yet. My FP said we can have a CT scan with contrast, which I did, It showed that the fibroid had grown to 5cm. So he sent me to GYN and he gave me several options , and because of other health issues I decided that the first two were to risky and have decided to have the hysterectomy, in a couple days. No one can tell me is the fibroid is causing the severe pain I am having so I have no idea if this is going to help my main concern. *the pain* . All of this brings me to several questions. Is this thing really growing or did someone just miss measure? (I have never been diagnosed wih fibroids before.. If it ( hyste) dosen t work will it cause me any other problems that I don t need. This pain has been at a pain level of 8 to 10 for 6 months now. pain meds aren t really touching it and I ve tried a steriod shot, steriod pack, muscle relaxer and pain pils (norco 7.5) do you have any comments?
