  • Menopause

    Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation due to the ovaries’ “retirement” (primary ovarian failure) as a result of the depletion of eggs. It is defined as the time of the last period followed by 12 consecutive months of amenorrhea (no periods). Menopause transition...

  • Cervix problem? *would prefer female to answer*

    It is extremely difficult/almost impossible for you to actually insert anything (even a wire) into your cervix (canal) yourself as it is almost a pinpoint opening (unless you have given childbirth). Nonetheless, if you did manage to insert something into the canal but took it right out, the mucus discharge is normal and no harm done!. READ MORE

  • How do I know if I have a yeast infection or herpes?

    Your symptoms and description are more consistent with herpes, but it can be type I (after oral sex) or type II. You can go to urgent care or city md to have someone take a look and do a culture. READ MORE

  • How to treat vaginal itch?

    Aquafor is oil-based (vaseline) and usually does not help the symptom you have which can be due to contact irritation from soap/detergent/clothing or possible a yeast infection. Try using a mild hydrocortisone cream such as Vagisil or topical antifungal such as monistat-derm or Femiclear (organic). If symptoms persist for more than a week then see your Pediatrician or Gynecologist. READ MORE

  • Should I take a pregnancy test?

    You can take a pregnancy test (sold at Pharmacies) if you have not had a regular menstrual cycle since the encounter 1 month ago. READ MORE

  • Lo Loestrin Fe?

    The 2 estrogen pills help to decrease or stop the chance of (breakthrough) bleeding during the pill packet because the daily dose of estrogen is so low (10 mcg). READ MORE

  • My period is late each month?

    It sounds like your cycle is every 33 to 34 days instead of every 28 days and this is perfectly normal. Your cycle length may change in your next decade of life. Generally, a cycle length from 21 to 35 days is considered a normal variation. READ MORE

  • Do ultrasounds identify all fibroids?

    Ultrasound has the capability of identifying even a 1 cm Fibroids. But small Fibroids Under 3 cm size are usually not symptomatic and just incidental findings. What symptoms were you having that you think are due to Fibroids? Large Fibroids can cause a heavier menstrual flow, pressure on the bladder, distended belly and a lot of pain if they start degenerating or “breaking down.” READ MORE

  • Do light periods indicate pregnancy?

    Yes, it is possible to have spotting or a light or even regular period in early pregnancy (at the time when your period would have been due had you not conceived) BUT NO, having short, light periods do not indicate pregnancy. READ MORE

  • What can I do to improve my chances of getting pregnant?

    First of all, a couple is not considered to have a fertility problem until they have been actively trying for at least 1 year. So, try to relax and not worry. If your cycles are regular it is easier to know when you ovulate. Ovulation occurs 2 weeks BEFORE the first day of your period always. So, if your cycles are 28 days, ovulation occurs on day 14; if your cycles are 32 days, then ovulation occurs on day 18 of your cycle (the first day of your period is day one). Once the egg is released, it is viable for 24 hours. Sperm are viable for 72 hours. So, you can conceive 3 days before to 1 day after you ovulate. This way you can calculate on the calendar your “fertile week” and concentrate your efforts then. I hope this helps you and good luck! READ MORE
