About

Bio

I have more than15 years of experience practicing Urgent Care, international health, women's health, and Family Medicine (including delivering babies). I believe that in order to provide the most effective care, a physician should work as a "consultant" with the patient, discussing what will work best from a medical standpoint while taking into consideration what works best from the patient's view point. In this way, we develop a united plan of care for the whole person, not just the disease.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Could be thrush,: or a yeast infection on your tongue. This usually needs to be treated with an antifungal rinse or lozenges, like nystatin. I would see a doctor for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Maybe from the doc.: You should let the surgeon or your primary doctor know that you are not getting adequate pain control... it could be that something is not healing properly, or that there is another complication. They may also be willing to prescribe you something stronger. We are not able to do that on this site, however, especially over seas. I hope you heal well soon!

Morning after pill?: When you say you took contraceptive pills after having sex, do you mean in the dosage for emergency contraception? Or were you on daily contraceptive pills when you had sex? Also, I'm not sure what happened on the 4th day, but I suggest taking a pregnancy test, and repeating it a few days later. And then get on a reliable contraceptive, either daily pills/patch, IUD, or an implantable.

This made me feel good. Thanks! I know it is stress but I can't shut my brain down. Thanks for reminding me about stress. I could be a doctor I am up for days at a time, no drug helps.
