Likely: Endometrial polyps are usually benign, as was yours. Prometrium helps prevent hyperplasia, a precursor to endometrial cancer. Ultrasounds are not usually diagnostic for adenomyosis, only suggest. A Levonorgestrel IUD may be more effective for treating symptoms of adenomyosis while preventing endometrial cancer.

How many times per day should I have my baby do "tummy time"?

Often: The more "tummy time" your baby gets, the rounder her head will be and the easier it will be for her to learn to roll, sit and crawl.
Tummy time - as much as possible!

Depends on his age: Babies need less sleep as they age. The following is the average amount of sleep babies need at different ages; each individual baby is slightly different.
Newborns: 16-18 hr/day (half during the day, half at night)
3 months: 15 hr/ day
9 months: 14 hr/day (but now it's 10 hr at night, 4 during the day)
2 years old: 13 hr/day (most at night with a 2 hour nap)
4 year old 11 hr (no nap).

A 21-year-old member asked:
When I take my baby outside, I always cover all of his skin with sunscreen, just as the aap recommends. Isnt that enough to protect him from cancer and yet give him vitamin d?

No: If you block the rays that burn, you're blocking the rays that help you make vitamin d. Use a vitamin d supplement.

Could an abdominal/pelvic CT scan without contrast (ordered for ureteral stones) detect ovarian cancer also?

Sometimes: A ct scan will show the ovaries in the pelvis. Only significant and sometimes advanced changes of ovarian cancer such as excess fluid in the pelvis may be noticeable.
