Hello,

The brown discharge is indicative of old blood. It is nothing to be worried. But since you haven't had your period in a few months, please be advised to take a home pregnancy test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

Hello! I was diagnosed with pcos about 2 years ago and was started on glucophage and progyluton. I took progyluton for two months and since then my periods have been regular. I still take glucophage and my periods have been regular for a year now. O also took clomid for three months, i ovulated but didnt conceive. The last time i took clomid was 3 months ago. Since my period comes on time, it was odd that i missed my period this month (25th nov was my date). I have sore boobs, nausea, lower back pain, dizziness and a lot of clear sticky discharge. However, i took a preg test today and it came back neg. Could i still be preg? Or is it pcos induced irregular period? P.s usually im really dry about a week before my period so this is new Please help

Hello, I am 44 years old and I went to my gyn last week for my annual and a few days ago I found out that my pap was normal. During my visit, my gyn suggested ablation (the type with the balloon and hot water) to combat heavy periods that are sometimes irregular. Surprisingly, not a lot of women agree to have this procedure when menstruation issues are typical and minimal; however, the procedure is VERY tempting. Are there any major long term concerns with this procedure? Why aren t more women having it done?
