"Good morning doctors. I have been having very light flow in the last 4 months. I used to have very heavy flow before my fibroid surgery but it normalised after. Now in the past 4.months it's been should I say sparingly even though last night was a little ok for a first day. Could it be cos I have started to take lemon water? I heat it is good for the female reproductive system. What could be the cause?"

    Good morning. It's normal for you menstrual flow to reduce after the fibroid surgery because the surface area of the inside of your uterus has also reduced when the fibroid was taken out. It's nothing to worry about. Are you taking any drugs now apart from the one you took after the surgery? How many days is your menstrual period and your cycle length now as against before?

    Hello. I don't think there is any need to worry. But you can do a pelvic scan to rule out any abnormalities. I'm glad you are keeping watch over your health. If you have any other questions or complaints, please let me know. Have a great day

    Is stooling during pregnancy normal. My friend is in the final stage of her pregnancy and she has been stooling.

    Good afternoon. Frequent stooling you mean? That is watery stooling 3 or more times in a day?. If so, it's not normal during pregnancy or otherwise. Was your friend given castor oil in order to induce Labour? It can cause stooling. Your friend should please see her obstetrician as soon as she can. Take care

    I have been taking a lot of lemon water and I noticed that now that I am ovulating I am very fluid. Most cases it seems like I peed my pants. Is this a good thing/sign

    Good morning. I think maybe you should take it easy with the lemon water. Take ordinary water for now lets see if it normalizes. Take care
