ACT score.: You should take anact test to determine your control of asthma. Look at asthma.Com for the test. A score of 19 or less is not a great score. You may need to have your doctor adjust your medications.

Can anybody tell me how well the rhythm method works as a birth control?

Dr. Timothy Brown

Not very reliable: Using the rhythm method effectively depends upon absolutely regular and predictable cycles (not common) and considerable self-discipline. Since your sexual desire or libido increases when you are most fertile and this is exactly the time you have to avoid with the rhythm method, it tends not to work out well.

?: Exercise asthma diagnosis simply means that you are reactive to exercise but is doesn't mean you have to quit exercising. Talk to you doctor about how you can treat this and exercise at the same time.

Allergic to leaves/mold + asthma. Find I'm using inhaler/neb more freq. Does this mean asthma is no longer well controlled? What do I tell my pulmo?

Yes: Increasing use of a rescue inhaler may mean that asthma is not well controlled - or maybe that there is an infection. Would let your pulmonologist know the frequency that you are having to use a rescue inhaler as well as letting him or her know all of your symptoms.

Asthma/Allergies: I think perhaps make sure you have a corticosteroid inhaler like flovent and ask your pulmonary dr to refer you to an Allergy/Immunology specialists for testing and allergy shots, if you are willing. Antihistamine therapy during the fall +_ singulair (montelukast) may also help. Do you have a peak flow meter and know your personal best?
