How long should one wait after having children before going back on the pill? My due date is in may, and i would look to go back on the pill after I have my son. How long should I wait before i can begin to use this method of contraception?
3-6 weeks: Ask your doctor even before your delivery. Depending on your health and risk factors, you can restart the pill in 3-6 weeks after delivery. I hope that you are planning to breast feed--it's the healthiest thing for your baby and easiest for you. That will also determine when you can restart, and which pills are safest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does bazuka clear a wart I have been treating mine on my thumb for 5 weeks on advice of my doctor how long should I wait before another appointment?
Size and location.: Salicylic preparations to treat warts usually work best on smaller ones. I am not a fan of using an emery board or sanding devices when treating warts because they tend to make micro cuts in the skin. The viral particles can then be spread through the new cuts. The treatment, as with most things, depends on size and location. To protect from complications, no more than two weeks between visits. ...Read more

Several things: First, the ability to be toilet trained depends on neurological maturation. Second, toilet training is a skill that is easily shaped through positive reinforcement.
