Hi Mrs.Ashraf;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Dark green stools with cramping pain is not normal ;it can be due to infection of stomach.Please consult your doctor to get treated for the infection.Getting treatment is very necessary because diarrhoea and dysentery are known to cause pre-term labour.So consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Thanks

Dr. I had conceived in second month (April 2013) after my marriage last year. I have confirmed the pregnancy by a strip test at home. Next day I bleed right after sharing bed with my husband. On visiting Dr. confirmed pregnancy and give me medicines and injections for saving pregnancy. Four weeks later I bleed again on visiting Dr told me that the fetus is not growing and it has to be removed. It was described as a Missed Miscarriage and I had gone through D&C. Dr Advised me to try conceiving right after first periods she suggested me few medicines for healthy and early pregnancy eg. folic acid, trihemic and Duphaston. I have taken the course of medicines twice and the conceived again in October 2013. For 22 weeks it was a healthy pregnancy. When I visited Dr. After 22weeks she told me the ultrasound is showing fetus of 21 weeks instead of 22weeks but it is not an abnormal thing It can be recovered. 6 days later I feel as if I was going to have periods and I had something which will fall in my lower abdomen. I felt light pink color in vagina few days before but ignored it. After 6hours I Bleed on a sneeze and Upon Consulting Dr on phone she told me to lie down and take rest. Bleeding was not stopped and after half an hour I had sever cramps in my lower abdomen. After half an hour in the Hospital Dr. told me my Uterus is open about 5points and I have to deliver the baby. Heart Beat of baby was still there he was alive but my uterus was open and nothing can be done. Dr. told me that it happened because of weak cervix and next time we will stitch it. On 4th month of pregnancy I had Blood test in which WBC was 12000 and on the day of delivering they were 14000. I am a working woman with 9 to 5 job and I have to travel 50 minutes (oneside) from my home to go to office. I am the only female in house with four other persons and I have to look after homely duties as well. And both of these duties were continue during pregnancy. I want to know the cause of this problem. Whether I really need to get stitches on cervix on next pregnancy? When should I try to conceive again?

I m currently 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Last Friday when I got up to pee I noticed a light pink spot of blood as I wiped. I went to see my doctor which then told me my cervix was closed and sent me to the ER for blood work and an ultrasound. Everything was normal... Saturday night I got really bad cramps, heavy bleeding and had to visit the ER where they told me I had a UTI. As I peed to give them a sample a transparent tissue about 4 inches long with clots was laying in the toilet. Monday, at my follow up an ultrasound showed the sac was still in my uterus but seemed to move lower from the last ultrasound. The bleeding & cramps have became way less intense. What is going on?

Hi
I am a 36 year old female. I usually experience symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Recently, after eating undercooked chicken in a restaurant I started experiencing stomach disomfort then a few days later I started to have sometimes hard stools and sometimes loose stools with blood and mucus. I went to my doctor who diagnosed my symptoms as being a dysentry infection due to amebiasis (without stool test). After a week of treatment, I went for a colonoscopy and now the biopsy results say that I have Crohn's disease even though I never had any symptmoms. I went back to my family doctor and he was reluctant to accept the result and suggested that it could be a sort of a pseudo-Crohn due to the bacterial infection that I previously had. What should I believe? Could amebiasis cause colon ulcers?
