Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
pain & cramping in the lower abdomen can be due to many causes ,in my view your pain & cramping is due to some infection ,not due to sex.So consult the gynec& get tested to find the cause & get it treated .Hb,TLC,DLC ,urine complete,& ultrasound of abdomen is required to find the cause.
Wish you good health

Hi, My wife had her periods fell on August 31 to September 3, but she has missed them on the expected dates (September 28 to October 1). We had intercourse between September 13 - 16. There might be high chance for her getting pregnant. However, she wants to abort, if such is the case. Do we have any home remedy for this? As it might be in very early stage, how can she abort safely, what are the chances of, if this early abortion has any ill effects and can cause difficulty in conceiving later on? Appreciate in advance.

Hi, I m 34 years old. I had a suction abortion for a failed pregnancy at 13 weeks (the foetus had stopped growing at 8). Since then, I have had non-stop spotting (often brown) and a period (bled for about a week) 27 days after the operation. At that point, I had an ultrasound which discovered retained products of conception. Today, I had operative hysteroscopy to remove the retained products, and during the operation they discovered a fibroid with a submucus portion, which they removed (just the submucus part). How long will I have to wait to try to conceive again?.

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?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
