Sort of : A hysterectomy will remove the uterus and cervix. Hpv generally lives on the cervix. Hpv can still be present though. Hopefully you are having a hysterectomy for some other reason though. A mild pap abnormality is not treated with a hysterectomy.

How can I prevent my child from having an adverse reaction to a vaccine?

Dr. Pamela Lindor

Vaccine safety: While you can't prevent an adverse reaction to a vaccine, they are very rare. Educate yourself about the vaccines and ask your baby's doctors any questions or concerns. Some babies wil have fussiness, low grade fever or soreness after receiving routine immunizations. If your baby has a high fever or extreme irritability after a vaccine visit, call to discuss with your pediatrician.

No: Postpartum baby blues are common. They last only a few days and can cause crying, etc but should not lead to decreased appetite, etc. Postpartum depression is more serious and lingers. Estrogen is not used to treat postpartum depression. You need to talk to your doctor.

What is the best way to get rid of chest congestion in 10 month old baby?

Consult pediatrician: Chest congestion of prolonged period demands thorough history and good physical exam to sort out the cause(s). There is no uniformal recommendation, and blind trial of over-the-counter decongestant/cough syrup would not be wise. Albuterol inhalation treatment without proper follow-up should also be discouraged.

How does one prevent inflammation of stomach lining due to bloodthinner plavix (clopidogrel)?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Moran
Cardiology 33 years experience
It doesn't...: Plavix does not cause inflammation of the stomach lining. If you have inflammation it is from some other cause, like helicobacter pylori infection. If your stomach burns after taking plavix, take it on a full stomach. Talk to a G.I. Specialist and have an endoscopy, they may give you a proton pump inhibitor or cytotec (misoprostol).
