What is the reason for delayed periods and stabbing pain in the abdomen ?

Im 18 and i had sex only once last march 23,2011 and it was protected and he didnt came inside me. I had my period after that last april 8-13. Last april 9, i went swimming and the water was very cold and i was experiencing abdominal pain during that time like dysmenorrhea which i often experience when im having my period. I was hospitalized for 4 days last april 10 due to gastroenteritis and i was on antibiotics and dextrose that time and they did not let me eat anything. I lost 3kg which made me underweight . I also found out that i was anemic . Now may 13, i still havent got my period yet and i dont experience any pregnancy symptoms. I also noticed white discharge which i usually experience before a period. I think this is the first time my menstruation is delayed. Last night i experienced a short stabbing pain below my belly button down to my vagina and it only lasted for a few minutes. I think im stressed and im not getting that enough sleep. What must be wrong?

hi
welcome to health care magic.
need not worry your not pregnant if at all you want to confirm get pregnancy kit and check it out at your home.
as your hemoglobin is low your menses must be delayed.i suggest you to wait few more days.
if at all you dont get your menses within 1 week go for thyroid profile test and ulrasound to rule out exact cause for your delayed menses.
consult gynaecologist near by after you get your reports.
dont be stress out which will just aggravate your condition be optimist
all the best

I m a 39 yr old male, and need help ASAP. For the past 7 years I ve been experiencing a severe, stabbing pain in my left leg. At first, the pain would shoot down my leg from the hip to just below my knee. Nowadays, the pain only occurs in one spot on the outside of my leg about 3 inches above my ankle. Years ago, I was dating a chiropractor and she was convinced that I was pinching my sciatic nerve in the Piriformis. I would stretch and pay attention to my movements and the pain occurred sporadically. It didn t matter what position I was in. It would hit randomly and feel like I was being stabbed in the leg with a knife or needle. I would go months without an episode. But when it hit, it takes me down literally. The pain is so severe, that I would drop to the floor. Now, in recent weeks I ve been experiencing this shooting pain, along with another symptom. I awoke one morning about two weeks ago and I could not touch my lower leg without searing pain. Its very similar to the stabbing pain, but I m able to trigger it by just touching my skin. It must be nerve related. There is a slight lump in my leg (3 above my ankle, on the outside of leg). This lump is so tender to touch. It sends a lightning bolt pain through my leg. My touch, running water, and even the sheets on my bed are enough to trigger it. It s so darn painful. So I spent a few days doing absolutely nothing. I lay flat on my back a lot, applying ice packs to my lower back and buttock area. I awoke one morning and that localized pain was gone. However, I began to get that stabbing pain again (identical to the shooting pains I m used to experiencing). Just a few days ago, I just lost hope in being able to heal myself. I went to a neurologist who performed an EMG test, MRI and Xray on my leg. I am currently awaiting the results. The reason I m posting is to see if anybody has come across symptoms like this. Can this be a herniated disc? Yes, I do experience lower back pain. But this is more of a gnawing, dull achy pain. I ve been experiencing this for years, and have just learned to live with it. Lately, I m feeling a gnawing, dull pain in my left buttock area too. Again, these pains are nothing compared to that shooting/stabbing pain in my lower leg. I sit here and wonder when the next shooting pain will occur. It could be days, or hours. I just can t stand this random appearance of this pain. It s taken such a toll on my life. If I can t find relief, I d consider ending it all. I can t live with this pain anymore. Just imagine some little troll following you around all day and sporadically sticks you with a burning hot knife. The pain is so intense, I choke up a bit, and hold back the tears. I m done with this. I must find relief or just check out, period. I hate to talk in such a morbid way, but I m at the end of my rope here. I anxiously await the test results. Now, I ask you pro s out there....could this just be an extreme case of Piriformis Syndrome? Could I have a bulging or herniated disc? Could it be both? I want to do Yoga and isolated stretching exercises, but I can t. The pain hits when I try. And they say stretching that causes pain, should be stopped asap. I take NSAIDs, but they don t curb the stabbing pain. They may reduce the number of episodes I get, but the actual pain does not diminish. Please, anybody who may have heard of such symptoms respond. I ll give it another few weeks. If I can t get relief, I m outta here. See ya on the other side.

Good afternoon, I am a 41 year old female, not pregnant, 5 6 120 lbs. I have been dealing with an issue with pains on my left side for over a year now. The pains vary in severity, location, how long they last and the kind of pain, but are most frequently a burning/stabbing pain located about two inches to the left and one inch lower than my navel. I have seen a general practitioner who guessed at it being either an ulcer or a GI problem, suggested I take ulcer meds and see a GI doctor. I the GI, he sent me for a regular as well as a tv ultrasound. He saw nothing alarming other than fibroids and sent me to an OB. One OB said the only real solution would be a hysterectomy, to take Advil if I can t handle the pain and the other one I saw (for obvious reasons) said the pains I get are not related to the fibroids as they are too small. My question: What kind of tests should I ask to have done by what kind of doctor? I would really like to find out what is wrong so I can go back to functioning normally again.

Hi Doctor.. (Preferably Gynecologist) My first time to used Althea Pills was last June-August 2013 just to treat my irregular period and to treat my acne. Being irregular is in our genes my sisters we re also suffering from period irregularities. The reason I took these pill is because I didn t have my period for 3 months or more, and I guess this is the reason why I had pimple breakouts. And it did a good job on my menstruation while taking it for 3 months I have been regular, my acne lessen somehow, and also I gain 3kls weight and my breast become bigger a bit. But I got a constipation to the point that I got so blood on my stools because of the hemorrhoids or im having rectal bleeding. ---Is it also caused by taking this althea pills? Now I just noticed that after I stopped taking this pill, I didn t have this constipation (Im not sure if this is just a con-insidence). And also my menstrual irregularities came back after I stopped the pill. Now I just notice that from February 2014 until June 2014 I did nt have my period yet. I m quite afraid for not having my period for almost 5 months. ----Is it because of the althea pill that I took before? And one last question.. My period Just came this June 6, 2014 but its very minimal. At first I got 1 tiny black sticky something on my underwear, followed by a drops of red blood but only little. Is it considered my first day menstruation? I decided to take althea pills again this time because It was written on the box that I should take it on the first day of my period. Im also taking Zinc for acne supplement from last month up to now. ----How safe it is to take again? An I heard that taking birth control pills like this can cause cancer, how true is this? And also Is it safe to take althea pills while Im on this dieatary supplement? Please answer my questions Doctor. It will be a great help for me. Thank You very much! I ll wait for your response. Im just very worried about this.
