  3. Hi doctor, I have minor surgery to remove uterine polyps last year. Right now, on some occasions, I have experience spotting in between cycle again. Is it possible for a recurring polyp episode again? What are ways to prevent recurrence? I read that mirena IUD may prevent such episode. Is it true? Your advice, please. Thank

    • drtan

      Polyps do not grow back so quickly. It could be because not all the polyps were removed. I assume your doctor has already excluded more sinister reasons like cervical or uterine cancer. Mirena IUD is good for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding.

  4. Dear doctor,

    I’m a 19 year old girl that is currently studying. I last had my menses around 11 of April 2016. Yesterday when i went to the toilet, i realise that my carefree pad was stained with brown blood and there was brown discharge.

    Today, when I was in school, i realise that my discharge was transparent with streaks of blood. When i used the toilet paper to wipe my vagina, i saw this transparent discharge that was quite heavy and there were streaks of blood.

    When i got home, i saw that my pad was again stained with lots of brown blood with a bit of red jelly discharge. When i used the tissue to wipe, i saw that there was this heavy jelly red & black discharge. There’s blood coming out and I’m unsure why is that so.

    I’ve checked google and most of the net say that this is normal due to ovulation.

    May I know if this is normal and if i need to proceed with a check up? Thank you

    • For once I agree with Google. From the timing and description of the symptoms, it does sound a lot like it is due to ovulation. The other possibility if a polyp. If you are sexually active it could also be due to an infection however I must say your symptoms are not typical of any STDs. I would say you really do not need to worry about it at this point, however if it keeps happening, you should see your doctor just to make sure there is nothing more sinister going on.

      • Hi doctor, i have the same exact problem as issue and it is still happening currently and previously i went to bencoolen clinic to check for the 3 most common bacteria but there was nothing present. Is there any chance for me to get Pelvic Inflammatory Disease? I am sexually active and i only have sex with one partner before and his only partner is me. We dont oftenly have sex but he does perform oral sex on me in the past few months and sometimes we help each other masturbate. Does the clinic at bencoolen help to do check up for PID and how much does it cost to treat it? I really am not sure what I can do next because i have no idea what is happening and the doctor does not know either. Can you help me with this please? Thank you so much.

        • The brown discharge usually happens 1 week after my menses end and it has been happening for 4 months already

        • Hi Mary,

          We can check for pelvic inflammatory disease by performing vaginal swabs, and an ultrasound scan of your female organs. The diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease also requires detailed medical history and physical examination.
          If you’re keen to proceed with investigations, please come by our women’s clinic at bencoolen street, I would be happy to assist with your checkup and treatment.

  5. Recently for the past few weeks, I have small little itchy red bumps over my arms, thighs and a few on my butt. Once i scratch it, it wont be itchy anymore. These bumps are usually isolated and once it recovers, new ones comes up. I have a history of eczema and asthma. Is this a side effect of eczema? Do i need to get tested?

    I had protected sex in geylang 6 weeks back and now i am showing pimples on my face which is not itchy.i dint have any flu or sore throught but i had a bit unclear throught 2 days back which is now fine.i have small single rash in my leg.i just want to know am i affected with hiv?

    • You cannot know if you are infected by HIV or not from analyzing your symptoms. You should and must get a HIV test to know for sure. That said, I can comment that your symptoms do not sound typically like ARS. For more information on HIV ARS, click HERE.

        Thanks,I Got myself tested and the result is no reactive.should should proceed with further test?

  7. Hi,

    I have facial hyperhidrosis problem. Will i be able to seek medical advice from your Robertson Walk’s branch since it is the nearest to my office (and later opening hours)?

    Thanks in advance.

  8. I’ve been having recurrent yeast infections for the last 3 years. Over the counter oral medication and those prescribe by my Gynae works as well. However, problem is they only work for a month n right after menses, the infection WILL come back without fail. I’ve done Pap smear, swab and all shows Candida. I’ve visited at least 3 GP and an Gynae and they could not understand why it wouldn’t go away. This is incredibly frustrating and I’ve taken at least 20 oral tablets for past 3 years. Tried Chinese medication as well but nothing works. Can you advice?

    • Recurrent vaginal yeast infections are rather common. There can be many possible causes. Frequently it is something that is causing a derangement in your vaginal micro-environment. You have to see a good doctor who would walk through the possible causes with you and come up with a long term treatment plan.

  9. Hi, will you be open after this CNY (9-11 FEB)?
    I wish to have a TB and HIV test
    Thanks
