Hi sona
Its not problematic to have intercourse 1 day before the menstrual date. Spasmodic pain ( Spasmodic dysmenorrhea ) is quite common during menstruation in young girls. When you expect menstruation you can start taking pain killers like Mefenamic acid and dicyclomine combination twice a day or similar drugs till menstruation is over. It will not only relieve pain but also reduce bleeding during periods. Take care.

Hi. I had Unprotected sex four days after end of my menstral cycle. LMP 12/25/13. Sex on 1/01/14 I was to start my new pk of BC 12/29/13.. But didn t I started my BC in 1/2/2014. I started getting pregnancy symptoms a week later.breast fuller/sensitive. Tired..lower back pain.. Mood swings..weird cravings. I took seven preg tests from 1/18/14 all the way up to five days after my next supposed to be missed period (1/22/2014) all negative. I started drinking parsley tea and high doses if vit-c on 1/23/2014. Did that for three days. I started getting cramps them spotting now two days after blood clots and more spotting. That pregnacy feeling disappeared the day I cramped and started to spot. My stomach also went down and my breast also and no soreness..I am not sure if me taking the BC pills late perhaps delayed my period due date by four days or if I was indeed pregnant and is having a miscarriage (meaning I aborted it myself ) I had missed a complete period two months prior to this happening due to me not taking the BC correctly and stopping 3/4 way of the pack. (I was not sexually active at that time. I had a gyn visit and My GYN doctor

I m a 46 year old woman with one child who is 9. I m having my menstrual cycle and the last 8 or so cycles have been much more painful, more heavy flow with more clots. Well, last night was my first heavy day of my cycle and I felt something larger than normal come out. I d been noticing larger clots coming out. Well I went into the bathroom to check it out and this thing was hanging, literally from the opening about 12 inches long. I pulled it out... it s kind of fibrous, like it has almost like small, elongated polyps hanging from it - these polyps are not fat just sort of oblong and thicker. I saved it and put it in a jar of water. Tonight when I looked at it you can see it definitely looks like it has fibers - almost tendon or vein-like looking... and kind of octopus looking. Weird. Should I be concerned? Help?

Hi! My name is Voula, I am 23 yyears old and I have PCOS. My doctor told me to start taking the pill because I had very infrequent menstruation cycle. That was 5 years ago. So after 5 years of non-stop taking the pill, I decided to stop it on my own. I wasn t feeling very well, i had gained weight and generally the idea of taking all these hormones made me nervous. I will visit a GP as soon as I can, but do you think I made a good decision? What should I be aware from now on? Thank you for your time!

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.
