Hello madam,

I notice that you are cycles are prolonged over a long period of time. It could be due to various causes or sometimes it's very difficult to establish "a particular cause". The common causes for prolonged bleeding include structural problems, such as uterine fibroids or polyps, Hypothyroidism, Advanced liver disease, Heavy menstrual flow, smoking, Depression, Chronic uterine infection.
If the symptoms doesn't subside please consult a Gynaecologist. A battery of investigations may be required to make a diagnosis. Wish you good health. Take care.

Best regards
Dr Swaroop

Hi Dr., I am 36 yrs old. Very regular periods, 30 days cycle, had intercourse around ovulation last period on 21 September (never had early periods) started light spotting 23 days into my cycle (never had this ever in my life, spotting between periods). It has lasted around 7 days. Done 3 home pregnancy test (one being today) and on Monday 19th I had a blood test with all being negative. If it s not implantation bleeding (as I ve been reading online could be a possibility, what other possible medical reason could it be?

I am 48 years old.. My periods have been regular up until these last few months... The days were March 12, April 25, May 17, June 16, July 15, Aug 26. So it went from a 44 day cycle to 29, 30, 29 and then 42. With my last period starting Aug 26th, I have no clue when im due to ovulate. I had sex w/my fiancé this past Sunday. Tuesday I had some spotting and this afternoon I started feeling nausea....At a 28 day cycle, my ovulation time would have been these last couple of day. What is going on w/me?

My whole body is aching, terrible upper back pain, shivering, feeling cold but head feels really hot, watery eyes, lower abdominal pain and right hand side pain. Took nurofen express today and started to feel better but this evening feeling really I ll again. Body aches really bad, all over. What is wrong with me? I am worried it could be an infection, or I was pregnant again and had another miscarriage. What do I do?

My symptoms are pelvic pain (tenderness, pressure), deep pain with sex, nausea , fatigue and weakness. I m having trouble standing up straight and I can t work. I m in pain no matter what position I m in. Doctors are dismissing my concerns because swabs come back negative and I have no fever. I fear a uterine infection. I haven t given birth and I ve never had an std, however I do have a history of recurrent bacterial vaginosis (untreated).
