A 31-year-old female asked:

can laproscopy unblock my tubes and what does proximal obstruction mean are my tubes totally blocked?

Possibly : If adhesions are causing the blockage then laparoscopy can take those down. Adhesion can, however, come back but less likely if done with laparoscopically. Proximal refers to near the origin of structure ( as oppose to distal, away from the origin of the structure). In terms of total blockage, i can't help u as this can only be determined by ur gyn with imaging. Good luck.

Would using my medications more frequently than prescribed speed up the clearing of my acne?

Acne use meds often: You doctor has prescribed medications for you (i assume) to be given, used, applied at specific times. More does not make it better. More pills would be dangerous; more frequent applications of the topical medication might cause burning and peeling. Stick to your "doctor's orders.".

Cardio conditioning: There are many causes of cardiac inflammation--infections, drug/chemo, radiation effects, excess alcohol, rheumatologic diseases, uncontrolled diabetes etc..While exercise itself does not get rid of inflammation in the heart, it may improve heart function and general health. It can help lower cholesterol/sugar, blood pressure and thus better heart-health. Other diseases must be treated. Good luck.
