Jus bit concerned about upcoming withdrawal from

Hi, jus bit concerned about upcoming withdrawal from Northeristone. Due soon, stopped day 28 of cycle. Had fibroid embolised last November, all good re shrinking and no blood supply. I get very anxious re menstrual loss and panic. On Northeristone to help me but came off for 3 weeks, had withdrawal then a period 12 days on. Kept spotting and light bleeding, so doctor advised me to go back on. Too anxious not to take this. Took med for 17 days in line with 28 cycle Concerned as to what this withdrawal will be like? And is it s withdrawal from Northeristone? What does it do to the lining? Can I expect a heavy bleed. I am very anxious and do not trust my periods at all, despite UFE.

I am looking for advice on uterine fibroids/polyps, and

I am looking for advice on uterine fibroids/polyps, and their symptoms whilst awaiting a hysteroscopy.I had a camera inserted into my uterus around 18 months ago and a biopsy was taken from my uterus wall. Results came back normal with just a small amount of thickening.This time last year I noticed my periods were becoming longer, heavier, more unpredictable and irregular. And I now have an appointment for another camera and biopsy on 18th August.Over the last few weeks I have noticed some slight constipation, some back pain/sciatica, and a bloated stomach. This is worrying me a lot more than I want to be, as I have my honeymoon on 31st July for 2 weeks and I don't want to be worrying about this.I am wondering that although some 18 months have passed since my camera, could anything have significantly changed in this time? I worry about female cancers or hysterectomies. I also worry if this is common and what the success rate of treating any fibroids/polyps without complications is.The hospital have only ever mentioned about polyps and thickening of the wall, never about fibroids. So I am wondering if these are the same thing. I also have PCOS diagnosed many years ago.Also I had an ultrasound 6-8 months ago before I was sent for my camera. If there was a large polyp or fibroid which was cause for concern, would there have been more of a rush in my appointment for the Hysteroscopy?I would like to feel more positive about all of this, and not dread what the camera or biopsy results will be. Should I be happy to wait for 18th August for this appointment?Thank you in advanceJayne

I have an endometrial polyp and on my new gyno's

Hi, I have an endometrial polyp and on my new gyno's recommendation I've booked an appointment with a surgeon for a consultation ahead of having it removed. It' causing a lot of pain and bleeding, which has increased substantially over the past two months. My question is, my ultrasound was done 5 months ago (the gyno then didn't talk to me about removing the polyp, although the reason I saw him and had the ultrasound was teh abnormal paon and bleeding). Should I wait another two months, plus maybe another month or two for the surgery, or should I find another surgeon? How quickly do polyps grow?Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: ive had increasing pain for 9 months. ibuprufen and hot baths helpAssistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: no thanks

I am a 46 year old female with two normal pregnancies. I am

I am a 46 year old female with two normal pregnancies. I am very slightly overweight, non smoker.I have a Prolactinoma with hyperprolactinemia dx in 2005. I have not a had period for 11 years. I do not take any medication to treat this, my choice.I did not have periods ever until last year when I had a random period but was still bleeding 6 weeks later and pain in my lower right side. My GP arranged a hysteroscope the Dr said my lining was ultra thin and could find no reason for the prolonged bleeding.I went back to my Gp who prescribed Cerazette this made it worse. So I asked for a combined contraception to try and stop the bleeding it has stopped and I do not have a seven day break I take it back to back, but have regular spotting I have been taking this for 7 months now. The pain has got gradually worse so I have recently had a pelvic ultrasound and the results are,Bulky anteverted uterus measuring 100m x 62mm x 79mm with aslightly heterogeneous myometrial echo pattern. No definitefibroids seen.Difficult to delineate the endometrium- Endometrialthickness approx.=15.8mm (patient doesn't have periods).Neither ovary could be demonstrated. No obvious adnexalmasses seen.No free pelvic fluid demonstrated.My questions are,Is it normal to have a thickened lining after having one so thin ?Does the combined pill thicken the lining ?Will this be causing the pain ?What should be done next ?I will be going back to my Gp but he has little knowledge of endocrine problems.Thank you.

there I hope you can help as I am very worried. I lost

Hi thereI hope you can help as I am very worried. I lost mono-mono twins at 13 weeks at the end of November. I found out on a scan and there was no sign of a miscarriage happening so I had an ERPC on 3 December. Three weeks later, I was still spotting and cramping, so I went back to the EPU and had a follow-up scan. This showed endometrial thickness of 13mm and RPOC but the doctor wasn't too concerned - she thought the tissue would come out with my next period. I was given antibiotics and continued to bleed lightly. I had maybe two days without any bleeding, then I felt premenstrual and 27 days after the ERPC, I had what I thought was a period. One morning it was fairly heavy but then it slowed to a steady light trickle for the next five days. I've had no bleeding for the past week. At another scan last week, five weeks after the ERPC, I was found to *still* have 9mm of RPOC and some small blood clots. I was told I hadn't had a period after all, it was just continued post-ERPC bleeding. But apparently my endometrium looked normal. I am under the care of a fertility consultant separately, and he was very concerned my gynae hadn't decided to perform a hysteroscopy to remove the RPOC. He also felt I probably *had* had a period and was worried it was so light, thinks I may have some uterine scarring. I am now terrified. I've booked to see my gynae next week but I'm so scared and confused. Do you think it sounds like I had a period? Could i have Asherman's? I'm 40, had to have a previous ERPC in July last year after a missed miscarriage and don't have any children yet.

I'm a 50 year old woman. My periods have been irregular for

I'm a 50 year old woman. My periods have been irregular for 3-4 years and my last 'real' period was about a year ago. I have always suffered from brown spotting mid period and as my periods became less frequent I have visited the doctor to check on various discharges including the dark brown spotting. About 5 years ago I had an endemetrial biopsy and ultrasound which were negative. Then 2 years ago after some episodes of light pink bleeding in between periods as well as the brown spotting I had both tests again, but the consultant who did the biopsy couldn't get enough cells to test, the ultrasound showed no thickening of the uterus wall and a small fibroid which I was told would shrink as my menopause progressed. One year ago I revisited my doctor with the same symptoms and I was referred again, no ultrasound or biopsy this time, the gynaecologist seemed content that the brown/pink discharges were a normal part of the hormonal changes I was going through and that they would stop in time, that the discharge was old blood and might be blood vessels in the wall of the uterus popping. One year later and I am now still experiencing small amounts of dark brown spotting, ( no pink at all though) it is irregular and a few days will go by without any at all but I wear a pad to keep an eye on it. Shouldn't this have stopped by now? I am not on HRT and take no other medicines, I am Average weight and otherwise in good health. I'm concerned it may be endemetrial cancer. I am going to make an appointment to try get another referral, nut just wanted an opinion in the meantime.
