My iritis occurred in Aug of 2010. With no previous family history of this condition and no systemic health issues per tests, I've concluded that stress was the initial cause as I have high myopia which may be the weak point in my body (non-scientific analysis). My iritis would keep reoccurring almost monthly once I was off steroids and I was labelled a "recurrent" patient. To make a long story short, iritis has not reoccurred (knock on wood) since I've been taking blueberries, now 2 blueberry concentrate capsules daily.

I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago due to very heavy periods and other issues but I still have my ovaries. Tonight I went to use the bathroom and as I wiped there was blood. I did it again and more blood, I repeated a couple more times and even more blood. I'm so scared, I think I need to see the gynecologist and test for cancer.
