Your body may be having a problem rebalancing your hormones, after stopping the tablets. Yes, it would be advisable to see a doctor, to get to the root of the problem. Does anyo...

Or now is it too late to stop the period? ## Hello, Suki! How are you? Yes, 3 days before your period likely wasn't long enough to delay it. Have you consulted your doctor? If you would like to have better control over when your period occurs in the future, you should talk to your doctor about taking an oral contraceptive. ## Hi, I had DUB and took primolut to stop. When the bleeding stopped after two days whenever i urinate i am passing blot clots which is similar to premenstrual symptom. It's almost 8 days now. should i be worried? or it's because of the tablet? ## Hi. I have a polycystic ovary and i...

1 Reply RSS
During my urination,I notice that my urine is pale in colour and its smells bad,sometimes i feel like vomiting when i smell it. I just want to know,what cause this,and what antiobiotics can be taken to avoid dis? ## You need to go see a doctor. I am a female and immediately know when I have a kidney infection because my urine has the nastiest smell and it's also extremely foggy. If this is the case for you go see a doctor now, I can only take cipro for my kidney infections because of my allergy to sulfa drugs. Go to an urgent care if you have to, a kidney infection is no joke
