A 35-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned about belly pain and bleeding at two months?

Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Yes: Bleeding in the first trimester suggests possible miscarriage. It can also be due to other causes. Cramping and bleeding together are worrisome. In all cases it is best for women to contact their OB providers for an evaluation and diagnosis.
A 20-year-old member asked:

I change my diet to reduce the chance of getting colon polyps?

Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis
Family Medicine 38 years experience
Colon polyps: Diets high in fiber, calcium, antioxidants (as from broccoli/cabbage/ cauliflower/brussel sprouts; green leafy vegetables; brightly colored fruits and veggies) seem to lessen risk of colon cancer. A positive family history for polyps, however increases risk, as does personal history of polyps. Avoid highly processed foods and fast foods due to low nutrition, high preservatives, high fat.

Very indirectly.: Hiatal hernia can cause you to have frequent acid reflux. Frequent acid reflux can back up into the lungs sometimes and put you at risk for developing certain kinds of bacterial and viral infections. So the answer is, hiatal hernia can *indirectly* increase your risk of dangerous bacterial infections.

Are upset stomach and constipation normal after starting to use iron supplements?

Yes: Iron frequently leads to upset stomach and constipation. Although iron can be dosed up to 3 x per day. Most patients cannot tolerate that often due to the abdominal pain that it causes. Sometimes adding vitamin C helps with iron absorption.

Pediatrics 46 years experience
Who told you that ?: The american academy of pediatrics & many other advisory groups have promoted sleeping on a babies back since the early 90's. Since that time we have seen a 40-50% drop in crib death over that period. I know of no one that advises belly sleeping for any reason, although if baby rolls into that position after 6m i don't try to change it. Tummy time while awake can help build upper body strength.
