Hi all,
 
getting to the nitty gritty here!!
 
I was just thinking about how MS effects the bladder and bowels.....and my understanding of it is that the messages controlling the contracting etc is effected by MS.
So....I'm assuming that mensturation can be effected too?????
 
about 8 years ago I had issues where my uterus was not releasing my monthly period....they concluded that my cervix wasn't stretching open...so did minor surgery to stretch my cervix.
 
Since then I've had two babies....and therefore have had plenty more cervix stretching!!!...and yet I think I might be experiencing the same issues again?????  I'm going to the doctor later this week to ask him....but thought you guys might have some info to help me???
 
May not be relevant at all....but may be another piece to the puzzle??
 
Thanks
Kas

Hey KAS,

We like the nitty gritty here.  I don't have any problem with the old uterus (that I detect anyway).  But it doesn't seem far fetched to assume that MS could cause symptoms and problems there.  Good luck at the doctors. 

Love on those precious girls for us.  Tell them to stop pulling the heads off their dollies.  Hehehehehe.

Keep us posted as always.

Love and prayers,


Gretchen

Kas,

My original problems started in Jan. of 2006. In June I started having periods every 2 weeks. I went to an OB/GYN. They did an ultrasound to see if I had cysts or tumors on my ovaries. They never did find anything. I was told that my brain had "lost the signal" that regulates the menstrual cycle. Hmmm, so is that a neurological problem? The doc put me on the pill for 3 months and it still didn't help. Out of the blue in Nov. my periods were back on track.

I was also told about the lost signal when I was 23. My doc then did lots of blood work and ovulation tests and other tests. I wasn't dropping any eggs and my hubby and I were trying to get pregnant. I was put on fertility drugs for a year and it still didn't help. I was told to "be happy you have one child". A year after stopping the fertility drugs I found out I was expecting! Everyone was surprised and very delighted!! My husband even cried! The doc said that he guessed my brain found the signal again. I was dumbfounded but never questioned anything because I was going to have our second child!

Today I have 3 wonderful kids that I love bunches!!!

I totally think that this is all somehow related to MS even though I am not formally dx.

Take care and know that you are not alone!

I have read that MS does affect your menstual cylcle and so can the CRAB drugs. It seems there isn't much MS can't affect! GRRRR>>>
