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 Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.
