Only what you need: That's not a question i can answer. Antibiotics are bad for you if you don't need them and good for you if you do. So take only what is necessary, and then take all that are prescribed.
Dr. Hector Amaya

None: Antibiotics are a help to fight a infection while your immunity is bussy combating infection. Antibiotics attack the bacteria or virus for you but the are not part of any diet or any dietary supplement they are not good for your body the potentially can hurt you if used too often such as diarrhea or allergies .One antibiotic can harm just as bad as 100.

In how many days will my milk supply come in?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Pappas
Pediatrics 23 years experience
1-10 days: Your pre milk or colostrum is probably already in, but your full milk supply can take a few days or more especially for the first time mom. A baby's cry, suckling, and holding your baby are all stimulants to your milk "letdown". Other factors which may help with your milk release is good hydration, good eating habits, drugs and sleep. Supplementation with formula can help in the meantime.

Why is it necessary to get so many ultrasounds in pregnancy/

2 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Craig Keathley
Obstetrics and Gynecology 24 years experience
It isn't: In an uncomplicated pregnancy, repeated ultrasounds aren't necessary. A 1st trimester sonogram is best for confirming the due date and number of fetuses while fetal anatomy is best assessed in the mid to late 2nd trimester. Additional sonograms may be recommended if complications such as hypertension, diabetes, or pre-eclampsia arise, but for the uncomplicated, low risk patient, 2 should suffice.

Yes: It depends on what you are comparing it to.....Driving your car is riskier than eating meat from animals given antibiotics. However if you have the ability and the money to purchase meat from animals that were not given antibiotics and were fed appropriate food then i would say you should.
