Dr. Metzger is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
Thx! I have fibroid and endometriosis. I stopped all meds while TTC, and at the verge of giving up as it's been so frustrating and miserable
Thank you, your answer was very helpful. I did pushups..80 to be exact and 2 weeks later I still hurt in left shoulder blade ribs and chest.
