I have been having hot flashes for about 4 months...my doctor said that after testing I am not entering menopause yet - I am 49 years old & had a hysterectomy 16 years ago - I still have my ovaries. What else could be causing this? I recently left a very stressful work environment & am feeling much better, eat well, do yoga 2x day & am very active but the hot flashes persist. I tried Black Cohosh briefly but it upset my stomach. I appreciate any thoughts Thanks - Connie

Why would I have HOT FLASHES say quite a few years after I should be done with those? Like I m 77. Does the body heating up periodically mean that I may have something else going on? I m not a sickly person at all...not many colds, not flu, no flu shots either, No pain anywhere?? I do have 4 teeth implants that are 2 years old..I can feel that they are there, could I be developing some adverse reaction to the metal..titainiam(sp) ..I hope not because I have a new knee Titainiam, put in April 25th 2017. It has healed quite nicely, no more pain... So that s my story.. would like to know about the sweats I m getting. K. Cline

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
