hi, This question is concerning my crippling menstral pain. I

This question is concerning my crippling menstral pain. I am a 25 year old healthy young woman and I currently only get one week a month of "cramp free living." I am considering a partial hysterectomy because I have ZERO interest in having children (neither does my husband who has had a vasectomy). But I've heard through stories that most doctors won't do this unless there is a major medical problem..I hope this isn't true! Can anyone help me with this?

yes it is true because unless you have any high risk medical problem of uterus ,hysterectomy will be carried out.

menstrual cycle is a physiological occurrence.if your facing problem in it consult a doctor to rule the problem for painful menstruation.

uterus is not only used to get child. it control important hormone level which keeps your body functioning properly..

if your uterus removed hormonal changes( lack of progesterone ) will occur.that will lead you many physical and mental illness like anxiety,calcium deficiency and other related problems.

kindly consult a gynecologist to get a clear idea about your concern and post hysterectomy problems.

thank you

hope i answered your query.

Hi. I have chronic (horrible) pain; so when I get my blood pressure checked at doc s office, they just seem to chuck if off as if it s from pain or being nervous about the appointment. No one has seemed concerned or told me I need help with it. For awhile (a few years ago) my primary care doc put me 12.5 mg of HTC. Once it ran out and I couldn t get it filled at the pharm, I didn t ask my new doc to prescribe it. Is it really serious to have 145/107 when I m 47 and a non-smoker? I have SO many other heath issues, this one doesn t even make me nervous or make me want to ask the new doc to prescribe something for it. If he hasn t asked me about it or noticed the numbers, then it s not a big deal, right? WOW!!! I didn t know you were going to charge me to answer a health question. Guess, I ll do nothing (because you re not doing suggestions) and possible die soon, but you don t care because I didn t pay the $15. How sad it that!!!!

Hi, I am 20 years old, and for the past three days and counting I have had severe pain that seemed like menstral cramps at first seeing as though the pain was in my lower abdomen. (Im not due for my period for another week and a half) By the second day the pain had moved up some, now being at about right below my belly button. I have had a terrible headache, nausea, and suprisingly not many bowel movements since all this accured. My husband thinks they may be conception pains (if there is a such thing) and we did have unprotected sex about two weeks ago. However the only thing that has me concerned is that I had a bladder infection not too long ago and I was wondering if that could be the cause of all this?

I delivered my last child on August 31, 2010. Eight weeks after, I had my post-partum check up and had an IUD inserted. By the end November 2010, I started noticing a pain in my left flank area. It was a dull aching pain, but when massaged deeply, would go down my back, wrap around the front of my hip and make the front of my leg go numb. I went to the chiropractor for about two months, then with no results, visited my primary doctor. Blood and urine tests were fine. MRI showed slight bulging in the RIGHT L5, S1 discs. Went to 25 physical therapy visits with still no relief. I gave up for a while on finding out what was wrong. By February 2012 (guessing), I had my Mirena pulled out by my OBGYN. I had been having lots of stomach pain and my husband had a vasectomy, so I really didn t need the birth control anymore anyway. By October 2012, I believe, I had an ultrasound because I was having lots of pain and cramping in my stomach. Results were normal. By then end of 2012, I was experiencing extreme fatigue and visited my new primary doctor. We tried different antidepressants until I stayed on Effexor XR beginning April 2013. I started seeing a massage therapist once a week beginning in probably August of 2013 for my back, with no relief at all. Extreme fatigue continued and after blood work kept coming back fine, he sent me to a cardiologist. In November 2013 I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). I was put on 5mg of Midodrine 3 times a day. My fatigue disappeared almost immediately. The pain in my back has always been there since November of 2010, but I was ready to try again since I was seeing a new primary doctor. He sent me to a pain management doctor who has now done 3 nerve injections, all with no relief from the flank pain (Deep massage did not seem to bother and make the front of my leg go numb though). Another MRI was ordered, and this one had the same results as the first, except I had a mild dehydration on the left side at L4,L5. My primary doctor still did not believe it was the cause for my flank pain, so he ordered a CT. Those results came back this week showing I had a swollen uterus. Since I am up do date with my pap smears and I had an ultrasound that showed nothing about 18 months prior, he does not believe this is the reason for the left flank pain either. I am completely at a loss and don t know what to do next. The pain management doctor said that it could be from the POTS. It has been going on for so long now that want to go down every avenue and rule everything else out before I just accept it as a POTS symptom. Sometimes when lying on my stomach, it seems to relive a little bit of the flank pain. The massage has just been aggravating it lately, and also laying on my right side seems to aggravate it. Since I can pinpoint when the pain started, I ve wondered if it could have had something to do with my last delivery or even the epidural from the delivery. I could use any insight or ideas that could maybe trigger an idea for my primary doctor. It has been almost 4 years since I realized the pain starting (and I have a high pain tolerance, so it could have been there for longer). I know this is a lot of information, but thank you in advance!

My son had a vasectomy right after birth. There is a piece of skin that the dr. said "would eventually pull apart" as my son grew. The skin attachment has not changed. Son now 18. Purely cosmetic but really bothers him. What type of dr/surgeon does this type of surgery?

I'm 30 years old, I am in good health, I had a vasectomy a week ago. Since then my scrotum has been extremely relaxed, or in other words "saggy balls". They have yet to constrict, which has made recovery even more uncomfortable. Is this something to be cocerned about, is this normal?

My girlsfriend has been feeling bloated and uncomfortable. She went to see her Dr. today and was advised that the issue is that the PH in my semen is causing a reaction in her body. The Dr. also said that this is caused by the fact that I have had a Vasectomy. Have you heard of this before? Is there something I can do via diet or anything at all?
