I am 45 and in perimenopause. I no longer have regular periods?

I am 45 and in perimenopause. I no longer have regular periods. My last period was 6 months ago and it only lasted two days. I also have fibroids. Recently I have had a light brown discharge. I have only had the discharge in the morning. Just after I get up and usually nothing for the rest of the day. What causes this?

I started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue

age: 24, height: 5’5″, weight: 128, gender: Female, meds: N/A, medical issues: none, duration: 6 weeks, hormonal imbalance?

So it the strangeness started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue. Six days later I get my period although it’s shorter and lighter. The nausea, headache, and fatigue continued. A month passes and over that time I also started to get this pressure/heavy kind of feeling in my uterus, like it was expanding. I’m starting to get a little freaked out because I’ve been feeling strange for a while with little change. I didn’t think it was pregnancy because one unfortunate instance occured a day or two after what I calculated to be when I would have ovulated (although I’d been irregular the 3 months prior). I finally decided to get a $1 test just to make sure and it came out negative. I’m feeling relieved but I still felt strange, something was still wrong.

Three days later I start my period, but it’s very strange. Day 1 was pretty normal maybe heavier than normal but in late morning of day 2 I started passing clumps (not like the ones I would normally get at the end of my period, they were larger and looked a little different, like tissue). The first two were pretty normal but they kept coming getting larger and more frequent. Towards the end I had to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes or so to pass 7 cm clumps. There were about 7 clumps in total 4 of them were large, 3 of them were very large about 3″ clumps. I was also cramping very bad. I normally only cramp the first day and if it’s bad enough I’ll take some medicine and I’m usually fine after that. Not the case, even after taking medicine it was still very painful. The clots stopped after 5hrs, I felt completely drained emotionally and physically (my uterus felt bare/empty). My period continued for 3 more days. The other symptoms I felt over the month subsided after that. What was wrong with me?

I have been having lower left pelvic pain that radiates to my groin, down my upper front thigh, hip and to lower back?

I have been having lower left pelvic pain that radiates to my groin, down my upper front thigh, hip and to lower back. It gets severe after my period ends and sometimes around ovulation and can last for days. I had a Plain CT scan without contrast last June in the ER when I first had this severe pain. It came back normal. I am worried maybe it missed something ( like diverticulosis and or diverticulitis. I was wondering if a 3T MRI without contrast would be able to diagnose and or rule out diverticula and diverticulitis? I cannot tolerate the contrasts or dyes as I get nasty adverse reactions to them.

General Information: I have seen sevreal doctor’s and keep getting bounced around. This issues started last June. I keep having episodes. I was told it may be gynelogical. I consulted with a gynecologist who specializes inn gyne issues and he said he could do a laprsocopy to explore. I want to be sure this lower left pain is Not being caused by something else like Diverticulosis / diverticulitis before going under the knife. I am super sensitive to chemicals in general and get nasty reactions. I have read that 3T MRI has higher resolution and can diagnose issues without the use of the dyes and contrasts. Is this true?? Would a 3T MRI be able to see diverticula and diverticulitis?

I am unsure what my cycle is like when I’m not on the pill, but I am on day 33 with no period?

Hi. I have recently stopped taking my birth control in hopes of trying to conceive. I had been on the pill for about 8.5 years. I stopped taking my pill at the end of my last packet which was one month ago.

I have yet to start my next period. I am unsure what my cycle is like when I’m not on the pill, but I am on day 33 with no period. However, another strange thing is that my last period (while on birth control) was very irregular. It was only two days instead of the usual 4-5 and it wasn’t even enough flow to fill a tampon. I would call it spotting more than anything. I thought that I might be pregnant, but I have taken multiple tests and they all have had a negative result.

Should I be concerned that I have not had my period yet and that my last one was so strange?

Doctors want to push postpartum depression pills again?

I had a baby in nov. 1 week later i had emergency hysterectomy and blood transfusions. 5 weeks later i started ending up in ER every few days same problems: shortness of breath , racing heart ,PVCs , legpain, dizzyness, blurry vision, memory and cognitive problems,faintness, even from the smallest activity. All i could do lay in bed.They all said its only in my head and all doctors kept pushing post partum depression pills. Finally end of january they did an iron panel and that showed extremely low iron levels and ferritin levels. Which meant my body made faulty (small size) red blood cells thta didnt carry enough oxygen in my body after the surgery (for months) . They gave me 2 iron ivs and discharged me . By now (april) blood normalized, but i still have the pvcs, cant really leave the house, brain and eyes didnt improve either. This is not a life .Doctors want to push postpartum depression pills again … my question is where to go from here? Is the damage permanent? Who can improve my condition? (On brain MRI there are more than 10 spots in white matter that could be caused by hypoxic ischemia) . Thank you for your answer in advance

Experiencing a dull ache on the lower right side of my abdomen?

I have been experiencing a dull ache on the lower right side of my abdomen. It has been around for a few years, and it comes and goes. It feels like a very dull pain, or a burning sensation. It doesn’t feel swollen. Touching the affected area doesn’t hurt, I really have to press on it to feel the pain. I don’t have a fever, or nausea. I provided a picture and marked where I feel the pain.

I have noticed that I get this ache when my menstruation is about to start. I’m due to begin any day. I’m just hoping it’s not something serious like appendicitis. Thank you.

I had a UTI received antibiotic for severe kidney infection?

6-8 weeks ago I had a UTI, the symptoms went away so I didn’t give it any thought. About 3 weeks ago on and off I started having pain on the right side of my back, thought I pulled a muscle. This past week pain has gotten worse, Thursday night vomited, but not notice of fever. Went to urgent care this afternoon around 2 p.m. and received antibiotic for severe kidney infection. Between then and now the pain has gotten significantly worse. I know the antibiotic doesn’t work that quick, but my worry is did I wait to long for an oral antibiotic to have any effect for several days. The smallest thing from talking, moving, bending, reaching for a glass sitting next to me, pretty much anything has me verbally moaning in pain.
