Even if you have noticed changes in the appearance and texture of your breasts; if, on the other hand, you have experienced pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia), or difficulties in getting pregnant: in all these cases, my advice is not to wait too long and to talk about it without fear with your trusted doctor.
Menstrual cycle alterations
Possible modifications of the menstrual cycle (for amount of flow, duration, and interval) or the recurring presence of painful (dysmenorrhea), irregular, or abundant (menorrhagia and hypermenorrhea), or sudden metrorrhagia (bleeding independent of the ovarian cycle) menstruation must be reported to the gynecologist. He/She will arrange the most appropriate controls to exclude important pathologies and hormonal alterations connected to them, to identify the causes, and finally prescribe the necessary treatments.
