If : If i understand your situation correctly, your newborn daughter is having difficulties and you wonder if her problems may have a genetic link with you, your spouse or another man whom may have fathered her ? You may wish to ask her doctor if her condition is one that is commonly genetically inherited. If your daughter's dna is tested, are your husband and the other man agreeable to paternity testing? If either your husband or the other man do not want to cooperate with paternity testing, this would need to be addressed through the judicial system. Because, I am a physician, i recommend that you consider posing this question to a lawyer. This situation sounds complex and may require legal input. ...Read more

I have had a sore throat for about 2 weeks now went to a doctor about it and she said it was eustachian tube dysfunction but has not gone away?
Listen to your body: Something is irritating your throat. It is possible that you are having reflux into the pharynx which is causing the irritation. Doing things to prevent reflux may help such as eating small meals, and avoiding irritating foods or pulling down a hiatal hernia. A chronic post nasal drip could irritate your throat. Avoid dairy, wheat, and sugar and drinking warm liquids like home made chicken broth. ...Read more

Hi doctor i went for an HSG test on the 16 april 2014. ....My docs says my left tube is occluded at the cornual end.....What can we do?
Occluded Tube: Not a lot that can be done. In the us, most docs have abandoned tubal corrective surgery as the rates for ivf are better than conceiving after the tube (s) has been repaired. Also, when the tube has been either operated on or previously damaged, there is an increased risk for an ectopic pregnancy. At 24 years old, i would just try to get pregnant naturally for at least a year. ...Read more
I had my right Fallopian tube removed due to ectopic prego
The doc says my left tube swollen
what can cause my tube to swell?
Should I b worried?
No need to worry now: If you have no abdominal/pelvic pain and no fever, the swelling of your left tube will probably resolve spontaneously unless an infection was known or diagnosed. Since the cause of ectopic pregnancy is usually unclear although often attributed to a tubal anomaly, malfunction or infection, you are at risk for another ectopic and will need to have an early pelvic sonogram once you get pregnant again ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a 5mm lump in the tube that runs down the back of the left testicle. It's pretty firm, my doctor says its a cyst and not to worry.
Both of my fallopian tubes were cut, have bleeding, my doctor says my progesterone was low, put me aygestin 5mg for 21 days, will bleeding stop, ?
Maybe: It will if the source of the bleeding was indeed low progesterone. However, it is not uncommon for period cycles to be anovulatory (no egg produced) in a given month as aging occurs. When that happens estrogen only is secreted and can cause the prolonged bleeding that you have experienced at age 36. ...Read more
