Probably not: Cytotec (misoprostol) alone may not cause an abortion. You should talk to the doctor that gave you the prescription.

That's an unusual regimen for medical abortion: if you did not get that from a doctor, please do not ever try that on your own, it can be unsuccessful and also possibly quite dangerous.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I had UTI and while I was getting treated I was bleeding a lot, like a normal period, but is that normal? I had my period a week before I had uti.

No: Treating a UTI should not cause vaginal bleeding. Sometimes a UTI can cause some blood in your urine but it is usually not heavy. It is possible the symptoms felt like a UTI but were from some other cause.

Long term affliction: The 3 primary approaches to allergy are: avoid -find out what & avoid, supress:use allergy med to reduce sx & retrain: use allergy shots to retrain your system not to react to offending agents. Allergy testing can give you an idea about your triggers & an allergist can advise you on allergy shots. Many otc allergy meds are available.

A 29-year-old female asked:

What would cause my son's ear to bleed slightly after having swimmers ear?

Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Is the cause of swimmers ear. The skin gets wet and boggy and inflamed and it could bleed from that or if he picks it at all it could bleed. If he had a middle ear infection as well and the eardrum perforated it could bleed. None of these are terrible problems. If you are concerned it is always a good idea to have it checked out.

Looks worse : Initially, injuries to the nose may swell and bruise. Most physicians recommend waiting approx 7 days and reevaluating. If the nose still looks swollen or crooked then you should see an ent. If it looks much better then you are safe to observe.
