Endometriosis doubt women health question and answer

  Endometriosis is something I have suffered from for the last two years, but my doctor doesn't seem to able to help. What exactly is it?

  Endometriosis occurs when some cells of the womb lining settle in other parts of the abdomen. Then each month, responding to the normal hormonal changes, these cells break down and there is a small amount of bleeding from the associated blood vessels - just like in menstruation. However in this case there is nowhere for the blood to go, so it collects just like a bruise. As the blood liquefies it may give rise to a strictly, Painful cyst which gets stuck on to other things, Like the gut. Blood is also intensely irritating to the peritoneum, So many sufferers experience a mini peritonitis each month.

My Period stopped but I am not pregnant woman health question and answer

  I am a very keen runner and  am not training most days. Although I am very fit and healthy my periods have stopped completely, and I am sure I am not pregnant. What has caused it?

 If you are certain you are not pregnant - and it is still the most common reason for a missed period - then the most likely explanation is that you are taking too much exercise. Although it is an excellent thing to be fit, excessive exercise can give rise to problems. It causes a substantial drop in hormone levels and this is enough to cause your periods to stop. Also, as well as disturbing the menstrual cycle, excessive exercise can lead to thinning of the bones - osteoporosis.

Ultrasound Painful women health question and answer

 Is Ultrasound Painful?
 No, not at all. There is no pain or discomfort involved. What happens is that you lie down comfortably and a technician will put some lubricating substance over the area that is to be looked at. This ensures that the sound waves connect properly with your skin and are not dispersed through an air gap. A sound 'pad' is gently smoothed back and forth across your skin. It sends sound waves into your body and picks up the echoes.

Abnormal smear test-cancer stage women health question and answer

  I have just had an abnormal smear test.The doctor has said that it isn't cancer but they still want to treat me and do follow-up tests.Is this really necessary?
  Just because it is not cancer at this stage does not mean that it can be ignored. It is a warning and it is vital to have any treatment suggested. It left untreated it could develop into cancer after several years and this is too big a risk take. Treatment and follow-up tests are entirely in your own best interests.

Abnormal smear test - women health question and answer

 I had a smear test recently and have just been recalled for another one. Why have they done this?
  Abnormal smears are more common among women in the 25 to 34 age group,and of every 100 that show up abnormal the likelihood is that less than 15 of these women would eventually develop a real cervical cancer-even if they had no treatment.The trouble is it is not possible to identify exactly which 15 woman out of the 100 are at real risk treatment must be offered to all woman with an abnormal smear occasionally,the smear test can be altered by a mild vaginal infection and women are then recalled for early repeat smears. This is merely a precaution and nothing at all to get worried about.

Home pregnancy test kit

I have recently bought a home pregnancy testing kit i can know as soon as possible if i am pregnant.why do they suggest testing twice?
                The new tests are so accurate that they can be used immediately a period is missed.However,although the test is accurate the certainty of a pregnancy continuing is not. Many pregnancies,perhaps as high as 10 percent ,fail to implant properly. Although your test can be positive immediately your period is missed, a retest two weeks later may give a negative result.This is why most tests advise that your wait until you are at least five to six weeks away from your last period. Even with this precaution it is important to remember that home tests have a failure rate of one in every 100.
