About

Bio

I am a practicing gynecologist and gyn surgeon and practice at a tertiary care hospital. I have extensive experience in women's health care issues. I have been in practice for 35 years!! I am board certified in Ob/Gyn and been president of the ObGyn Society of Greater Hartford and am the President-elect of the State Medical Society. My practice has a great track record of quality of care and lack of litigation and I have served on many panels that assess the skill and safety of other practices.

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.

Maybe: implantation takes place usually 7-10 days after ovulation. mild cramping may be a sign of this. once implantation occurs, the level of HCG begins to rise and then the pregnancy test will be positive. conception usually happens in the fallopian tube when the sperm and egg unite usually 36-48 hours after ovulation.

Each of these qualities exemplifies Dr. Henry Jacobs. I have been a patient for almost 30 years because of all of the above. A bright, kind, wonderful doctor and human being!

This was very helpful. Thanks! I noticed today it looks more like a small allergic reaction. Maybe it was something I touched, not quite sure. If persists I'll see a dr!(: Thanks!

This made me feel good. Thanks! Also thanks for response to Dr. Killian. He's been quite rude in another question I posted before
