I'm scared to bring up female health concern with my dr due to anxiety/triggers. How can I tell her in a 10 min apt?

Be creative!: Write down your question or concern and read it to her as soon as she enters the room. Alternatively, hand her the written question.

Hello I'm a 27 year old female good health recently had my blood pressure checked and the reading have been low 90/55 my recent 93/55 is this normal ?

Is 45 female great health and 46 male great health too old to conceive a child we want to is it better to do IVF and have multiples inplanted?

Only 9.1% of women over the age of 42 conceived with ivf in 2011 in the United States. I would recommend evaluation with a reproductive endocrinologist immediately to review your options and see if you are a candidate for therapy. ...Read more

My A/G ratio says 2.9 is that something to be concerned about? All other ranges are within the normal.30 year female no health issues

Nope.: An isolated abnormal A/G ratio is generally clinically insignificant. Nothing to worry about. From Quest Labs: "The albumin to globulin (A/G) ratio has been used as an index of disease state, however, it is not a specific marker for disease because it does not indicate which specific proteins are altered. The normal A/G ratio is 0.8-2.0. " ...Read more
