Hello, About 1 year ago I was eating a medium


About 1 year ago I was eating a medium sized meal and experienced a sharp jolt of pain my upper abdomen and lower right shoulder area.

The pain lasted for a few weeks and I had to breathe very shallowly for the first few days as taking a deep breath would cause the pain to come back very intensely (especially in my lower right shoulder).

This sharp pain eventually went away but I experienced discomfort in my lower right shoulder for a few months. I also noticed slight bruising with a slight red mark in the middle on my skin above the lower right ribs.

Lately the bruising has become a bit worse and it is also slightly swollen.

I'm feeling a strange pain that pulsates every once in a while (15 minutes or so) right now and it is again felt in the upper abdomen and lower right shoulder.

Can you help me figure out what this may be, how serious it is, and what steps I should take next? Thank you.

Hello, I m an 18 year old female and this is a sexual health question. Normally before my period my breasts get tender and I feel tired and moody and then I have a heavy flow and sometimes my period is late no more than a week. I am sexually active and my period was late by one day and the day after I had the contraceptive implant put in ( 3 days ago) and I have since not had my period. I ve been using condoms as a contraceptive previously and I am worried that I am in fact pregnant or is it possible that the side effect of not having a period whilst with an implant hs already started working? If you could let me know that would be great.

Hello. A week ago, I suddenly started to have sharp, stabbing pain in my lower left quadrant. A few days later, my abdomen distended and the distension has persisted- I look about 7 months pregnant. The pain has now spread across my entire lower abdomen, and I have both intermittent sharp and cramping pains. What could possibly be causing this?
