If after taking abortion pill at home and pregnancy not clear after 5 days of bleeding then what shall I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It, may take 7-14 days for the bleeding to stop. If during this time bleeding does not stop means pregnancy is not aborted completely, which needs to be removed with d&c to prevent infection. But you have to wait for at least 7-14 days after the vaginal insertion of the tablets.

Post-Menopausal Bleeding

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Post-Menopausal Bleeding

Postmenopausal bleeding
Post menopausal bleeding is vaginal bleeding that happens at least 12 months after your periods have stopped.
About 4 % of women suffer with the above problem.It is not normal to bleed after menopause and it has to be investigated.

Causes of post menopausal bleeding
Most common cause of post menopausal bleeding is atrophic vaginitis and atrophic endometritis.After menopause due to decrease in the level of harmones in the body there can be thinning and inflammation of the inner lining of the uterus.
Other causes of post menopausal bleeding are 
polyps they refer to the extra growths of the inner lining of the uterus as well as the neck of the uterus(cervix).
PMB can also be because of thickening of the inner lining of the uterus, also called as hyperplasia.it can be because of extraneous harmones or obesity.
Less than 10% of the woman who suffer from PMB may have cancer of endometrium ,cervix and vagina.

Diagnosis
1)Pelvic examination
your doctor will do an internal examination to examine the cervix and do a papsmear if it is due.
2)USG scan is done to note down the size of uterus and the thickness of the endometrium.based on these reports the doctor might decide about the further tests.
3)Endometrial biopsy a small tube will be inserted into the uterus and cells are collected and sent to lab to note if there is any thing abnormal .This is an office procedure.and ususlly does not require admission
4)Hysteroscopy it is a procedure where a small camera is put inside the uterus and a targetted biopsy taken from the suspicious area.

Treatment
The treatment of PMB depends upon the cause.
If endometrial atrophy was the reason it can usually be traeated with estrogen creams and pessaries
Cervical and endometrial polyps require surgery to remove them.Hysteroscopic polypectomy refers to the surgery where in the polyp is removed under the guidance of the camera which is inserted into the uterus.
Endometrial hyperplasia can be treated with progesterone tablets or progesterone impregnated intrauterine devices.
Endometrial cancer will have to be treated with surgery for the removal of uterus and ovaries.Some patients may require chemo or radiotherapy as the stage of cancer may demand.
All in all postmenopusal bleeding doesnt mean the patient has cancer 90 percent of the time it is because of the benign causes but it should not be ignored but investigated.Its betTer to be safe than sorry.

I am not getting periods from 5 months. No other menopause symptoms except fsh showing high. Tsh is 10and using thyronorm from 2months of 75 mcg. Having palpitations and gaining weight. Whats my problem.

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

The culprit is uncontrolled hypothyroidism and insufficient estrogen. We have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term.

If hyper thyroidism detected in first 3 months of pregnancy the first choice is ptu but subsequent 6 months pregnancy nmz (neomercazole) can be safely taken under close supervision of doctor as frequent 4-6 weekly thyroid testing needed so auto avoid under or overdosing.

I am assuming you have done a urine pregnancy test before starting any treatment. As it appears you are having some bleeding please wait for 1 more week to see what happens. In the meantime use calpol tablets to help with pain.

Hypothyroidism and Poly cystic ovarian disease also causes irregular periods. Her age is 41 yrs right, may be because of menopause (cessation of menstruation)also periods are irregular. Better to take Homoepathy medicines. It helps to reduce menopausal symptoms.

Torch test positive indicates infection. If its active infection and your doctor has given medication please take the medications properly and try for baby after completion of 3 months medicine course. Chances of abortion are more when torch is positive, so complete your course properly.

You can take pain killer like meftal-spas -1 tablet three times daily after food to help during your periods. Alternative is to start taking hormonal pills like femilon for six months and see if this helps.

Your heavy bleeding is mainly due to fibroid. Please get examined by a gynae as you are in the age where menopause happen, and after menopause fibroids usually disappear on their own. You can also opt for homoeopathic treatment as we have very good results in ovarian cyst as well as fibroid.
