Doctor can evaluate: There are many causes for irregular menstruation. One common one is polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), a hormonal imbalance along with cysts in the ovaries. Though most irregular menstruation is not immediately dangerous (spotting), any woman who does not menstruate monthly, or consistently has irregular periods, should consider seeing her primary care doctor or an ob/gyn for evaluation.

Bronchiolitis: Bronchiolitis is caused by a virus, most often rsv, or respiratory syncitial virus. The viral infection results in inflammation, or swelling, of the lower small airways. The swelling of the tiny airways results in rapid breathing, cough and wheezing. Symptomatic treatment includes clearing the nostrils of mucus, maintaining hydration, and making sure the child has enough oxygen.

No: A cvs does carry a risk of miscarriage so if your bleeding is very heavy or lasting for more than a few days you should see your doctor.

Yes: Vaginal bleeding during the first trimester of pregnancy can be a sign of threatened abortion. It can be more serious if you are having abdominal/pelvic pain. Call your OB on call or if you do not have one, go to an emergency room for an ultrasound.

Depends on amount: As far as when you can eat it depends on the type of restoration placed. As far as feeling right, it depends on how much was given, location of of injection and your metabolism rate. Usually i tell my patients the felling should last 2-3 hours. If you are more active, this can shorten this time, the type of anesthetic also matters.
