Appointments

Ive taken 4 at home pregnancy tests and they all came back negative. I’ve had sensitivity to smells, light cramping, and I’m nauseous most of the time. I used to smoke cigarettes and I was never bothered by the smell but now it’s enough to make me want to puke. I’ve also had quite a few headaches and I’ve been tired a lot lately. I don’t know if I just took them too early.. or if I’m really not pregnant and it’s just something else with all these symptoms. If I am pregnant, I would have conceived about 2 weeks ago.

The symptoms you describe could be symptoms of pregancy.  It would be important to know when your last period was and if you have missed or are late for your period.  Please schedule an appointment at Corner or your own health clinic to evaluate further.  

 

I had unprotected sex Oct 27. We use withdrawal, but before he released his penis a little semen went inside my vagina, then he pulled out his penis then ejaculated. I took emergency pills without hours after our unprotected sex. I'm worried I'll get pregnant. My last menstruation was Oct 4 2017

It is unclear from your message when you took the emergency contraceptive pill.  The pill works best within 3 days of unprotected sex.  If you do not get your period a week after it is expected please schedule an appointment to have a pregnancy test.   If you do get your period you should also schedule an appointment to talk about birth control. You can schedule an appointment here:

I'm interested in going on HRT (hormone replacement therapy), but my family doctor doesn't have much knowledge on this situation. Do I have to have therapy to be qualified to start?

At Corner Health Center we see patients who want hormone replacement therapy.  We do not require a therapist evaluation in order to start.  We do a physical examination and blood tests and then our physician does a thorough assessment to determine a plan of treatment. 

If you are under age 18 parental consent is required. 

Give us a call at 734.484.3600 if you would like to schedule an appointment!

 

I'm a student at EMU along with my best friend. My friend has been struggling with a lot lately and because of that her anxiety and depression has been consuming her. It's to a point where she's having extremely bad panic attacks nearly every night and thinks that everyone in her life is going to leave her. She doesn't trust the services provided here on campus (or talking to a professional in general) and I can't physically be there all the time to help her. I'm at a loss with what to do and I really just want to get her some help. What should I do?

You are in a very difficult situation.  Please have your best friend schedule an appointment at Corner Health.  We will do an assessment and assist her to get the treatment she needs.

About a month ago the boy I was seeing gave me oral and fingered me, there was no penetration but I think he might have touch his fluids and rub them in my vagina, is there any chance that I might be pregnant? Lately I'm nauseous and tired. Should I take a pregnancy test? Please help!!

Yes, if he had sperm on his hands and penetrated your vagina there could be a chance you could get pregnant. 

Nausea and fatigue can be a sign of other things also.  You can come to the Corner to get a pregnancy test, see your regular health care provider or buy a test at the drug store.  

 

I'm 25 and have a glossy skin colored bump on my labia. I've had it for as long as I can remember and have STD and STI screenings annually. I've had two STI's simultaneously in the past and that's it. My OB has never seemed to be concerned with it but I've also never raised the question, thinking she would mention it if she felt she needed to. I used to get UTI's and kidney infections a lot when I was younger and had one with each of my past pregnancies, but not this one. I had my first pap when I was 14 and it came back abnormal but it hurt too bad to do a second time. Since then I've only had 1 abnormal when I miscarried and was diagnosed with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, the 2 STI's I mentioned. I took the meds, went back and it was all clear. This was between my first and second child. I also have very heavy but short lived menses. I'm a redhead, so I hear that's common for us. I guess I'm just worried it may be HPV; Being why I included my history. I don't think it's herpes as it's only the one and never goes away or ruptures or even hurts. Any advice would be appreciated. I also have a pic but i don't know if that's acceptable or appropriate.

The lesion you describe could be a skin tag or HPV.  It is best to make an appointment with you primary care provider or OB/GYN.  Also, you are still within the age to receive Gardisil to protect again the HPV strain that can cause cervical cancers. 

You can always schedule an appointment at Corner Health to discuss further. 

 

So I gave my boyfriend a blow job, got him off, and didn't clean everything up own there. He put it away, then awhile later we had unprotected sex. Could I be pregnant?

Is there a way to know if I'm depressed or have anxiety issues? I am having some troubles and I don't feel like myself lately, but I am afraid to tell my parents. Also they are very closed minded and they won't let me go to a doctor. What can I do?

If you are over the age of 14 in the state of Michigan you do not need your parents consent to get mental health services. Please schedule an appointment at Corner health or your own health care provider to discuss your symptoms. 

If you are under 13, try telling your parents you aren't feeling well and would like to see a health care provider. 

While what you are feeling may be depression or anxiety there are other things that can cause people to not feel like themselves. 

 

What are the steps that I should take to have safe sex and to not worry about STDs and pregnancy?

Condom use is recommended every time you have sex if you want to protect yourself from STIs (sexually transmitted infections, same as STDs, sexually transmitted diseases) .  This includes protection against Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, Hepatitis B and C, HPV and HIV/AIDS .

To prevent unplanned pregnancy there are many forms of birth control available. Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or your health care provider to see what method is best for you.

In the state of Michigan you can receive sexual health services without parent consent if you are 12 years old or older. Corner also has condoms available for free at the front desk!  

 

I had sex on the 5th July whilst on the microgynon 30 pill. Sex was unprotected but he pulled out, I stopped the pill on the 11th of July and got my first withdrawal bleed on the 15th , however It was my first time having unprotected sex and I am scared I could be pregnant , and I don't have any access to a pregnancy test store. What are the odds that I could be pregnant? I haven't really had any symptoms though I took the pill everyday, I also tried to stick with timing and I took it an hour before sex , I am so scared and I don't know what to do Cause I don't know how I can test myself And I'm too scared to go to the doctors as she's my mothers friend (even though it is confidential) I also was sick and put on antibiolotica around the 7th of august , (but it seems to be just malaria), I am just generally frightened. I also got thrush for the first time after having my withdrawal period. Is that a sign of pregnancy or anything wrong?

Thank you for your question, and I understand that you are very worried you could be pregnant. It sounds like there are a few factors that play into this question, including your medical history, current medications, and the facts surrounding your birth control and the timing of intercourse. The only way to safely answer your question, unfortunately, is to schedule an appointment with a medical professional who will need to ask more detailed, confidential questions to get all the information necessary to give you the most accurate answers. Feel free to call us, 734-484-3600 to schedule an appointment today.
