This is so freaking serious!!!
D and C
Kindly assist in posting this in doctor’s in house section. I’m so scared now and need to know if I’m all right. I have ask several doctors about my case without giving full information on what happened but they have confirmed I’m all right.
I will be getting married soon and I need to be sure I can conceive because the thought of not having a child is scaring me.
Sometimes in year 2012 I had D&C two times in space of six months duo it is a part of my life I wish never happened. All the D&C were done in a specialist hospital at least I made sure since you can’t keep the baby you can’t risk my life in the process of terminating the pregnancy.
During the second pregnancy I delayed in terminating it because I thought I was going to persuade my then boyfriend to allow me keep it, I finally agreed to terminate it after the pregnancy was 9 weeks gone. After the D&C I have had this particular issue that has been a concern to me. A normal me don’t have painful menstrual cramps, I hardly have few or no pains at all the only sign of mensuration is that I’m moody for sometimes or feel small cramps in my womb then that all. My mensuration last for four days with normal flow that is I can wear one pad throughout a day without getting stained.
Now to the issue after the second D&C my mensuration came back to normal which is 26 to 28 days of my last period but to my greatest surprise I saw tiny blood when I mean tiny it was so small that one pad would have taken all the blood for the 4 days. I went back to the hospital I did the D&C the doctor told me that my hormone had change and prescribed a drug to take I have forgotten the name to correct my hormone so as to boost the level of blood to come out during my mensuration.
I took the drugs and the next month my period came back to normal. I took the drugs for like two to three month and when I felt my period has come back to normal I stopped the drugs duo I dint go back to the hospital since I felt there was no need for that. After a while my period changed from the normal four days flow to two day without it been heavy please note, no cramps at all. I went back to the hospital on the day of my mensuration doctor checked me to the extent of even checking the pad I was wearing and said the flow was normal duo it lasted only for two days but it wasn’t as heavy as before in time past. He advice I should continue with the drugs he prescribed in the past I complained that I don’t like drugs plus I don’t want to live on drugs the rest of my life as I’m too young for that, he tried in making me see why I had to take the drugs for health safety all this was happening between 2013 and 2014.
I continued taking the drugs duo there was no side effect it was just that I didn’t like the idea of taking the drugs every day without anybody knowing not even the then boyfriend. Please note my menstrual circle never exceed 26 to 28 days of my last period and it will flow for two days this month and flow for three days next month and it wasn’t a heavy flow plus no cramps at all.
One faithful day I was discussing with my bosom friend who knew everything that transpired in my life then, I told her about the everyday drugs which I was tired of taking, she then advice I stop taking the drugs as she was also not comfortable with me living on drugs that it was normal for me to have period for two days that what she will advise is that I try and take alcoholic drink like small stout or gin few days to my mensuration as it will aid in making me have a heavy flow since that was what I wanted.
I stopped the drug after the last pack and waited few days to my period and took small stout or so to my greatest surprise my period came with a heavy cramps and heavy flow. I was so happy that I continued with the systems.
Now the issue is the day I forget to take this alcoholic drink few days to my period it will change to how it use to be after the D&C. As I’m typing this I’m in my period which started yesterday as usual I forgot to take the alcoholic drink. I just went to pee yesterday only to clean up and wipe some blood I fix my pad because I am always a ready person when it comes to my period. Since yesterday to now no menstrual cramps no heavy blood but small blood.
I am so worry now because I really don’t want my past to hurt my marriage I almost confessed to my fiancée yesterday but I was scared of him leaving me. I am scared of going to the hospital because I don’t want hospital compounding my thought with more. I just need a good doctor here who can give a good advice on the following below.
• Should I go back on the drugs prescribed to me in the past mind you I have forgotten the name?
• Should I continue with the alcoholic drink or gin my friend advice?
• Will I still get pregnant since my periods don’t exceed 26 to 28 days after my last period?
• Was I tampered internally unknown to me?
• Do I have any internal issue that would have cause this?
• Is it normal not to have menstrual cramps
• Where do I get a good female gynecologist around Ketu in Lagos?
• I will entertain all advice at the comment column, if you want me to contact you please drop your number for follow up.
