A 27-year-old female asked:

is it normal for a 2yr old female's urethra opening to seal off allowing a small amount if urine to pass? dr only gave hydrocortisone cream.

Labial fusion: It's not the urethra that's sealed, it's likely the labia in front of the urethra that are fused together . This is actually pretty common. It becomes a problem when, as you described, it obstructs the flow of urine. When this happens a mild steroid or hormone cream can be used to gently open the labia and remove the obstruction.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Can women go on birth control even though their mother has had breast cancer?

Yes: Bcp use is not associated with any significant incidence of breast cancer regardless of risk factors, however, certain breast cancers can grow in response to estrogen use. It is advised to begin cancer screening 10 years before your mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer. This should include yearly physician exam and mammography, ultrasound, and/or mri, depending on age and risk factors.

See doctor: All of these are different problems with different treatments. In some cases they can be linked together. I would recommend seeing your md to help localize the source of your pain and to discuss treatment options. Treatment options for the above may include medication, injections, and physical therapy.

Appears safe: Thre are some relative interactions of two of the drugs already being taken. Naproxen may increase the blood levels of gabapentin. Some caution advised with the use of Naproxen with Propranolol (may decrease the effectiveness of propranolol) but no known probem of st. Johns wort with any of the medications. As wilth all medicatons check first with your pcp, specialist physician or pharmacist.

See your doc: I would recommend and ultrasound of the pelvis and possibly abdomen. Maybe some blood tests also. If the pain becomes severe or gets worse, go to the er as it could be appendicitis.
