Brief Answer:
Could it be due to hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Spotting during first trimester of pregnancy is usually due to hormonal imbalance.
If spotting is associated with any pain,than it needs to be investigated.
You should go for NT scan because it is not harmful for your baby.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Brief Answer:
Your NT report is normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for sending me your reports.
Your NT scan report is normal.
In first trimester pregnancy baby weight is around 14 kg( in your case twin pregnancy, so it is distributed between two).
You have to go for 2 nd level ultrasound at 19-24weeks of pregnancy.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.

39 asian female, menses Nov 6-12, abdominal pain LLQ goes away when supine, tender to touch, no fever, ate (stupidly) at Burger King Mon evening. Onset next morning, vomiting. No diarrhea. Some bloating, + flatulence and last BM Monday. At Disney world for the week. Seem to walk ok, occasional cramping. Nothing that brings me to my knees. Back pain because I am walking in flip flops, perhaps? Have one day left (today) and headed home tomorrow morning. Warrant an ER visit? Pain tolerable with Motrin.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
