When in doubt: just check pregnancy test in 2 weeks and repeat if negative in 1 week. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week.

Your symptoms could also be viral stuff. ...Read more

My daughter took omnacortil 40 on dr's advice just one month back & now she is having an acute stomach pain in just above her navel area. She is 17yr ?

Likely NOT related: Omnacortil is branded steroid called prednisolone, a commonly used medication which has powerful antiinflammatory effect. Typically it used for a short period of time, 3-7 days range. It has a relatively short half-life and thus out of the system quite quickly after last dose. As a result, i would not pin this med as cause of her abd pain. Get her evaluated as soon as feasible. Good luck. ...Read more

I am currently stuck on shift in an icu and am having an acute stress gastritis attack, will pepto bismol help with the stomach pain?

Gastritis: I am so sorry to hear this! Pepto should help, but you should see an MD to see why this is happening especially if this in to the first time: you may need to be checked for H pylori. Also, be sure you are not eating sugary foods, soda, refined carbs; go gluten free for a few months to see if this helps. Avoid caffeine (if you can) as this will make the irritation worse.

Conditions that result in bleeding into the urinary tract would be unlikely to cause green urine. ...Read more
