About

Bio

I was born in Singen, Germany but grew up in Ridgefield, Connecticut. I majored in ecology at Princeton, and took a year to volunteer as a paramedic before starting medical school. After completing medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, I did my residency in ObGyn at Harvards Brigham and Women's/Massachusetts General Hospitals. I have been in private practice since then, currently in Austin Texas.

Pregnancy or pms?: Most women have breast soreness and cramping when their progesterone levels are high. This occurs in the 10 days before a period comes and in pregnancy. Take a urine pregnancy test to confirm that you are not pregnant.

Not yet: Mid cycle bleeding can occur simply because of ovulation, but it can also be a sign of polyps or fibroids of the uterus. Infection is also a possibility. If this happens with one more cycle, see your gynecologist for further evaluation.

Sitz baths: put 6 inches of warm water in tub and sit until cool. Do this twice a day. Add Epsom salts as desired. Stop shaving and use a trimmer to prevent this going forward.

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! My gallbladder was removed in 2006. Does this cholestasis still start with my gallbladder?
