I would like to get some answers on what’s going on with my health. I am a 20 year old female and here are my symptoms: fatigue, always tired and needing naps, weakness that feels like I am going to faint, bone pain in my legs, arms, hands and feet, chest pain and pressure, swollen gland on left side of neck, tingling in my neck around where it swells (parathyroid/thyroid area), forgetfulness, and low sex drive. I’m thinking it may be my thyroid or my parathyroid gland.

Is there evidence that supports the use of an intrauterine device (like Attain) to help cure stress incontinence?

What is a solution for urinary incontinence? My physician said to do kegel exercises. I went to a urologist, am on medication Oxubutrin, and I bought a pelvic stimulation device. I am so tired of constantly being wet.

I am wondering if hormone therapy (BHT) is right for me if I am not experiencing any ill effects of menopause? I'm 52 and haven't had a period for about 14 months. However, I do not have hot flashes, night sweats, and in fact feel very good.

What is the reason that Estrogen/Progesterone is not being prescribed by OB/GYNs after a certain age (70)?

I started taking vaginal estrogen and now learned my dramatic hair loss may be a side effect. I recently stopped taking this medicine. I have an appointment with my gynecologist soon, but I’m panicking as I’m losing a handful of hair every day. What can I do?

My gynecologist's office closed suddenly, and I was having my pessary cleaned every 10 weeks. How do I clean it myself?
