Re: Thinking of starting a family

Re: Menstruation/Implantation question

There's no need for concern, all that sounds normal. I just think that you are more concious of your cycle now that you are trying to concieve. You can do a pregnancy test when you miss your period (or before, depending on cycle length and sensitivity of the test). If your period was on time, and th...

Re: termination fears

Firstly, having a termination is uncomfortable for a few days afterwards but should not add to the pain of your endometriosis. Likewise, the endometriosis will not add to your complication risk if the procedure goes as planned. Lastly, a hysterectomy is NOT a treatment for endometriosis.

Re: painfull lumps that come and go

These could be sebaceous cysts (blocked skin glands, like spots) but I would get examined by your GP, GUM clinic or gynaecologist to outrule herpes, molluscum contagiosum or rarer skin conditions.

Re: vaginal tear from childbirth nor sewn up

You need a referral to a gynaecologist - they'll be able to help you with all of those issues.

Re: Aftermath of severe thrush

I think that your gynaecologist will want to check your hormone levels including LH, FSH and estradiol, as well as your pituitary, thyroid and adrenal gland function. The discomfort with intercourse can be due to low estogen levels, but it pre-dates your periods stopping so is more likely due to a s...

Re: Labial cyst

It sounds like a Bartholin's gland that became inflamed and burst. If surgery wasn't required, they can recur, so if it is inflammed again I'd get seen as an emergency.

Re: Vaginal HRT

Ideally you need progesterone to oppose the estrogen, otherwise the estrogen you are absorbing throught the vagina will stimulate the womb lining to overgrow. I would advise occasional estrogen use if you need it, estriol cream 0.01%, but only every 2-3 weeks. To reassure yourself, I would also advi...

Re: Ectopic pregnancy IVF and coeliac disease

It's unlikely that the coeliac disease caused the ectopic pregnancy. As you are now already on the IVF pathway, I'd continue the gluten free diet and proceed witht the IVF. The coeliac disease, with good diet, is unlikely to impact on the pregnancy (unless you have other autoimune conditions such as...
