This week we saw a wide variety of questions submitted to our community. Women asked about what can cause movement in their stomaches, pilonidal cysts, the effects of Postinor 2 and how to treat an enlarged uterus. Our moderators provided resources and answers to these health questions as well as many others. Do you have a health question you need an answer for? Post it to our community, and we promise to respond within 24 hours.
1. Why is there movement in my stomach if I am not pregnant?
A: Babies do not grow in stomachs - they grow in the uterus which is far below the stomach. Therefore any stomach issues would not have anything to do with pregnancy (which you have confirmed is not the case anyway).
2. Can a pilonidal cyst be treated with antibiotics?
A: Pilonidal cysts are cysts that typically develop along the tailbone (coccyx), near the natal cleft of the buttocks. While the exact cause is unknown, it is believed that pilonidal cysts develop from ingrown hairs, which cause a local inflammatory response.
3. Could I be pregnant even though I took Postinor 2?
A: You will know the pill worked once you have vaginal bleeding or your next monthly period. If you have not had any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.
4. How can I treat an enlarged uterus?
A: The treatment to an enlarged uterus deepens entirely on what caused it. Once your doctor determines the cause, a treatment can be prescribed.
