it hurts down low in the center. the time of day doesn't make any difference.... sometimes heat helps however Tylenol doesn't help.

Brief Answer:
Hormone variation

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for additional information.

This pain is likely to be due to variation in hormones at menopause.

Menopause leads to variation in hormones and especially oestrogen deficiency which causes such symptoms.

This can be corrected by HRT therapy. If you are willing, you can discuss and start HRT under your doctor's guidance.

Let me know if you need anymore clarification.

I am 52 and been told by my doctor that I have been through the menopause, so have stopped taking contraceptives. Twice in the last month my vulva has felt swollen and painful low down when walking and getting dressed I also have clear discharge and my nipples are sore - this as lasted for the past week. It would be extremely bad luck if I was pregnant as my husband has been unwell for some months and we have only had sex 1-2 times. What do you think is causing this?

Dear Dr. Grief, I recently got a cyst in my nipple that was painful and I took antibiotics for it till it minimized and stopped the pain. It did not refill with my next period. However, I have excess body hair and I got an ultra-sound on my ovaries and this is what it said: both ovaries show small peripheral follicles with mogoneous stroma with no dominant follicles seen. I recently have been getting lower right abdominal pain and pain in my waist and right thigh as if something is stretching it from inside. I am 25 years old. What does it all mean?
