Hi, I am privileged to help you get more understanding about your current concern. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or Skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
A few questions first to clarify your concern:
1. Have you been pregnant before? If so how long ago? With this same partner?
2. Is your goal to get pregnant or to have easier menses?
3. How much animal products do you consume on a weekly basis, i.e. red meat, white meat, milk/cheese/yogurt?
4. How much soy products do you consume?
5. What changes occurred in your life in the last 2 years, ie. prior to these period changes.
6. Where you told you had fibroids? or polyps?
7. Have you had an ultrasound (US) = sonogram recently? what were the results?
Thanks for your responses.
Your answer to question #2 requires you to choose your most important goal. This is because in order to control your periods the treatment would prevent you from getting pregnant immediately. If you opted to have a Mirena IUD where it would release small amounts of progesterone will help to control your periods and fairly effectively. However this same treatment is use as a contraceptive agent. So it is important for you to decide between the two. Let's say you try placing the IUD for 1 year, then after it is taken out you could attempt pregnancy.
Alternatively you could start on birth control pills (BC) which will also control you periods and are low dose. You could do this for 6 months & then stop. Women who stop taking BCP often have an ovulation surge which allows them to get pregnant usually in the 1-2 months after stopping. This is the method I would recommend given your desire to start a family.
Keep in mind that it is wise for you to be on prenatal vitamins prior to starting to get pregnant. This allows your body has sufficient supplies of vital minerals & vitamins that are important for the developing fetus, particularly the nervous system.
You may want to consider speaking with an infertility specialist in your local area now just in case you have difficulty getting pregnant. I recommend this because you have never been pregnant and you don want to wait until 12 months or longer go by before consulting an infertility specialist
Let me know if you have any further questions regarding this question as my goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied with your answer.
It is not a good idea to take antibiotics unnecessarily. Inflammation is a general description. While inflammation is a term to describe the cellular changes, treatment should be guided based on the infectious agent. The question to ask is: Were any specific bacteria found on the biopsy to help guide treatment? If not then taking antibiotics will only increase your risk of resistance when you may need them later for a real infection.
I would tell you there are two camps in terms of treating inflammation. Recently the push to treat all inflammation with antibiotics was gaining ground until the realization that this is increasing our rate of antibiotic resistance. While I and many of my colleagues do not recommend antibiotic use for "inflammation" on a specimen report, if the report identifies a bacteria then yes I would recommend treatment.
Let me know if this is not clear. Please be sure to rate me so I will get compensated for my time and feel free to ask for me for your next health question
Have a great day!
