Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Customer:

Hi

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since how long are you having this fatigue or tired feeling?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

How are your periods?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

When did you have your last pap smear?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Customer:

Been feeling tired like this for about 3 weeks, my periods are very regular, my last smear was 6 months ago

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since how long are you having this bleeding when having sex?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you monogamous? (one sexual partner)

Customer:

My husband and I are trying for a baby and over the past 2 months every time we have sex I bleed 2 days later. Its not a lot and lasts for about a day

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Where exactly do you have pain the chest?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have any other symptoms like cough or fever?

Customer:

The pain in my chest is centre/ behind left boob. No cough, no fever

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does it hurt more when you breathe deeply or cough or when you press on the painful area?

Customer:

Breathe deeply/ cough yes. Touch it no

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The symptoms of chest pain is not something that I would worry about too much because this pain seems most likely to be a muscular pain.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Or inflammation of the covering of the lungs called as pleuritis.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In either case its not something to worry about.

Customer:

OK thank you. What about the rest of me?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Where exactly do you have pain in the stomach?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Which part of the stomach?

Customer:

Feels like my gut

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Upper part of abdomen or lower or right or left etc?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Tell me the location if you can.

Customer:

In the centre, just above my pelvic bone,

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is that pain present when you go to the loo only or is constant?

Customer:

Definitely there when I go to the loo and occasionally I get a sharp pain other times too

Dr. Shahzad MD :

When you press there, is it tender to touch? I mean deep tenderness?

Customer:

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that the bleeding that you are having, with the pain in the lower abdomen like you mention may indicate that you have an infection down there.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would certainly like to have you examined to have a look inside and to take a sample or a high vaginal swab for a possible infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You may require an antibiotic course if that is proven.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you do need an examination for this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Infection is something that may be causing you to feel tired as well.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you following me?

Customer:

Yes I'm following you

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any more questions or anything that you would like to add?

Customer:

No. Thank you for answering my questions
