My Aunt is 53 year old. She had her regular menstrual cycle 15 days back, but still her bleeding has not stopped and her bleeding seems to be a heavy flow some times , spotting as well as regular flow alternatively. It has not stopped even after taking tablets and injection . Her abdominal scan reports as Bulky uterus with multiple nabothian cyst in the cervix . Is the bleeding related to the cyst? How to get rid of them? Are they curable? Please suggest.

doctor1 MD

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The irregular bleeding that your aunt is having is not likely to be related to the nabothian cysts in the cervix. Such irregular bleeding is commonly seen due to a hormonal disturbance. Do consult a gynecologist for proper treatment.

1 and a half months ago i was diagnosed with diabetes and right ovarian cyst . when i went to my gynecologist he told me that my ovarian cyst would get cured once my blood sugar level goes down. next i went to a diabetes specialist . he gave me triglimisave and januvia 100mg . After about 2 weeks my period started (3rd july 2012) but it continuing still now. so i called up my gynecologist and he suggested novelon. but i am having doubts abouts it because i have read that it disrupts normal menstrual cycle. so my question is can i use novelon to stop excess bleeding?

doctor1 MD

HI,
THANKS FOR CHOOSING HCM,
NOVELON tab: desogestrel , ethinyl estradiol
these helps to stop excess bleeding
as they contain hormones ,it is likely to get variations in hormone levels in the body( which is not a matter of risk) they may postpone or prepone your periods
your doctor chose this...

Thanks for your query.

Hi. I am 47 years old and have been having irregular periods for the last 2-3 years. Mostly they don t come on time or don t come at all. When they do come, it is very light. This last time I was about 2 weeks late. I started the period and have now been bleeding for approx. 10 days. The flow is light enough but I have never lasted this long. Is this normal? Thanks.

doctor1 MD

Hello ma'am and welcome.

The causes for your presentation could be infections, hormonal imbalances, pelvic inflammatory disease, abnormalities with the lining of the uterus (eg. Endometriosis, etc.). Please meet your doctor for the same, as this could be a sign of some abnormality.

Hi, I usually have a regular period every 28 days that last for 4-5 days. I am currently on my period but it came 5 days early and I m now into week two which is very unusual. I have a distended stomach , cramping and I have put on a bit of weight recently (but I put this down to Christmas excess). Is this something I should visit my doctor for?
