Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

Inter-menstrual bleeding should not be taken lightly. You have to consult a gynecologist who will have do a speculum examination of the cervix to rule out cervicitis, cervical erosion etc., PAP smear test to exclude cervical malignancy, Ultrasound examination to exclude endometrial polyp and accordingly treat you depending for the cause.

Do not delay, consult a gynecologist immediately.

1. Hi, my name is Eunice, i am 49years old. My height is 5 feet 9, I weigh 209 lbs. I don t take any meds whatsoever, I am a vegetarian, I fall off the ban wagon now and then and would eat only fish at times. My periods usually last 3 days. Heaviest is on the 2nd day. Recently i have been experiencing heavy blot clots in my period on the 2nd day. Is that something for me to be alarmed about? The last time I had a pap-smear was about 8 years ago. 2. Lately after eating ice-cream or drinking ice water, or basically any thing cold, I would get tightness in the chest and my back [between my shoulder blades], and my brain seem to freeze, making it difficult to breath and focus. This happens at night before I go to bed, so I would sit up in bed till the tightness goes away. Last 3 days I had another attack so I put some cayenne pepper in water and drank it. After few minutes, my pain went away and i had a wonderful sleep. What do you think may be the cause and how can I prevent it? 3. My friend has fluid in his lungs. What my cause this, and how does one prevent it from happening again?

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?
