  • Herpes test results

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ Yes, that means you tested positive; however, it doesn’t say when you first became positive. IgG is an antibody that shows up in your blood when something is an old condition. I typically do not use blood tests for HSV because it gives the wrong impression related to STI testing. If you had a lesion, that could be cultured and if positive, it would mean you had a current outbreak of HSV. HSV 1 can show up like a cold sore or a painful ulcer on the genital area, most commonly. I’ve seen them other areas, but it’s rare. ‌ As always, for more individualized care and answers, you should always speak with your provider. ‌ Hope all goes well!

  • birth control and iron supplements

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ This is a great question! Iron will not hinder the effectiveness of your birth control pills. In fact, some birth control pills actually have iron to help us to replenish our iron from what’s lost during our periods. So go for it! Slow release iron over the counter is the way to go! (Smile) ‌ As always, for more individualized care and answers, you should always speak with your provider. ‌ Hope all goes well!

  • Could I be pregnant?

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ Typically semen has to get into the vagina to get the resources it needs to swim to the place for you to get pregnant. The fact that your period came right after could have just meant that it was actually time for your period. You can always take a pregnancy test to be sure. They’ll typically be positive after your missed period. ‌ As always, for more individualized care and answers, you should always speak with your provider. ‌ Hope all goes well!

  • Uterine pain

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ Typically the fishy/egg foul odor is related to a pH imbalance. It’s a sign of BV or bacterial vaginosis. This can be treated with a course of antibiotics. If you get yeast infections when taking antibiotics, be sure to ask for a yeast pill too! I actually have a video on my social media about bacterial vaginosis that could be helpful if you’re wondering how you get it. ‌ As always, for more individualized care and answers, you should always speak with your provider. ‌ Hope all goes well!

  • Why is my menstrual flow lighter than normal and why were my cramps very minimal and not long lasting than normal?

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ You know? Our bodies are something else. Sometimes we’ll have a heavier period and sometimes we’ll have a lighter period, only to return to our normal periods. Take a pregnancy test and if it’s negative, celebrate this light period month! Of course, if you have any major issues, you should always speak with your provider to have an individualized evaluation. ‌ Hope all goes well!

  • Pregnancy

    Hello, Thanks for reaching out. A pregnancy test would solve the mystery for sure! It’s best to know sooner than later to ensure that you get early care if needed! If it’s negative, make you an appt with your GYN to get started on birth control to avoid future scares. Good luck! Dr. Jay Follow me on social media for OB and GYN education and community outreach!

  • Female problems

    Hello and thanks for reaching out! ‌ Brest leakage could be the sign of other issues, unrelated to your birth control and pregnancy. Please schedule an appt with your GYN to have an in office evaluation. You may need labs and possibly breast imaging to start off. Imaging could go further, pending the results of those. ‌ Hope all goes well! Dr. Jay Follow me on social media for OB and GYN education and community outreach!

  • Pregnancy

    Hello, The best thing and most definitive thing to do is to have paternity testing. Typically you ovulate 2 weeks after the start of your period and that’s the time you can get pregnant. The most likely is the second guy. Again, get some paternity testing to be completely sure! READ MORE

  • Nexplanon implant

    Please see your GYN as soon as you can. It’s very common to have bruising and swelling, but being able to see it in person is the best evaluation. Hope it all goes well! READ MORE
