Re: Allergy to green tea

Re: Concerned about ultrasound and odd cycle - opinions and perspective please.

Sorry you went thru this. Sounds like the second gyno is more reasonable. My only comment otherwise is that brown blood is blood that wasn't expelled in a previous period so is perfectly normal.

Re: Phlegm at the back of my throat causing very strong gag reflexes.

You will have to just try OTC ones till you find one that works. I take Zyrtec. Claritin and Allegra seem to work for others. Or you might ask your doctor.
