I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What is the reason for delayed periods with pressure, bloating and discomfort near naval ?

3 months without a menstrual cycle . Lower ab area near ovaries sometimes tight or cramping , often alternating with discomfort. Not very often at the same time. Tenderness about 2 inches on the left side of the naval when applied with pressure . 5 HPT results were negative. Two months prior to missing first cycle, there was a swelling below the right rib cage. Numbness and once I swear movement even occurred. I thought prior to thoughts of pregnancy , there may be a gas/intestinal issue. Could these two be related?

hello
welcome to healthcare magic.
what is your age? you should get your self examined by a gynaecologist. you will need to get a sonography of the pelvis as well as of the whole abdomen done. also get your thyroid profile , prolactin and serum lh anf fsh levels done. if all is ok you will be given a medicine (progesterone) to bring about withdrawal bleed. do not worry, instead of just wondering what it could be, better you get yourself evaluated.

I am 17 days late with my period,have been trying for a baby for 8 months,have many pregnancy symptoms but all tests say negative I have fibroids,take blood pressure medication. Could it be that my hcg levels are still to low to detect pregnancy or could there be another reason I m so late with my cycle?

I have had bloating and a burning sensation in my stomach that wakes me up in the night. I do not take medication typically but have had to take pain killers a couple times in the past 4 days due to intolerable pain. My lower back hurts as well. The burning radiates from my naval to the sides of my lower stomach and lower back. My period is a bit delayed, but that is typical. However, these are not PMS symptoms I have had in the past; i.e. burning sensation in stomach. There is no chance I am pregnant. I have been tested for celiacs (sp), had blood, urine and stool tests, along with food allergy testing throughout the past few years. This has been happening to me on and off for 3.5 years, or sometime following my pregnancy and c-section. I am a healthy weight. I eat organic and healthy. I drink a couple glasses of wine per night. I am in my mid 30s. What are the possibilities?

Hello, Dr Shehzad Topiwala! My name is Daniel, and I am seeking your professional advice and expertice. I am 21 years old, male, good health, fit, no smoking or excessive alcohol. I am experiencing low testosterone symptoms such as: no sex drive, ED, depressed mood, etc. My sex life is almost non-existent. I am 21 years old, and should not be dealing with problems like these. The blood work done with my doctor, all came back within the normal range, and my doctor tells me everything is like it should be, yet I don’t feel like it is. I have gotten a copy of my results and did some research online. Aberrantly my T-levels at 14,5 nmol/L (around 350-400 converted to ng/dl), are in the same range as an average 80 year old… My testosterone levels are not god for a guy my age, and far from optimal. So I went back to my doctor, but now she tells me my symptoms are caused by depression. I admit feeling depressed, but that is a result of my problems, depression is not causing them. And then she continued to prescribe me some Viagra… I am confident in saying that the symptoms I am experiencing are hormone/testosterone related, not psychological. My testosterone levels are low, but not low enough to get treatment, and thereby no chance to get sent of to an expert on the subject. So I am glad I found your internet service. What am I supposed to do? I cannot live like this, life feels so empty at the moment, and I don’t feel youthful at all… Some of my friends tells me that they can masturbate/have sex 3-4 times a day. Me, I need a two-day recharge time after just one “session”. Below are my results, please take a look at them, what do you think? Free T4      18.9 pmol/L 11.0 - 22.0 FSH 3.9 IE/L 1.0 – 12.0 Cortisol 577 nmol/L LH      9.7 IE/L      1.0 – 10.0 Prolactin 156 mIE/L      100 – 400 SHBG      18 nmol/L      15 – 85 Testosterone 14.5 nmol/L 9.0 – 35.0 TSH      0.66 mIE/L      0.30 – 4.2 Estradiol 0.09 nmol/L 00 – 0.16 Free Testosterone 7.1      3.0 – 14.7 I was hoping your profession on this subject could cast some light on my situation. Do you see anything out of the ordinary when looking at my blood test results? I am noticing elevated LH levels, along with the low testosterone, does this mean there could be something wrong with my testicles/leydig cells ? One guy told me that my pituary maby needed a kickstart. And that my T-levels would increase with the use of a drug like arimidex or clomid. To my understanding, these drugs work by increasing the LH levels, thus increasing testosterone. If my leydig cells where not responding well, trying this would be pointless? If possible, I would ask for a detailed response. Thank you in advance. Best regards Daniel
