Is there any way to know about what age i'll go through menopause? My mother went through menopause fairly early, in her mid-40s. I am 40 and still have young children -- i don't think i could deal with menopausal symptoms on top of two preschoolers! is t
Yes : Yes (and no) because we do not yet have perfect tests. Here are is a link about to multiple resources about menopause timing (http://bitly.Com/gkpe8x). We think that a hormone called amh (anti-mullerian hormone) may be useful to predict menopause. Here is a link to my blog entry on amh (http://www.Dropsahl.Com/infertility/testing/anti-mullerian-hormone-amh/). Amh is a hormone produced by the growing follicles in the ovaries. The small antral follicles are constantly growing and you use up about 500-100 eggs each month. As you get older and the number of eggs goes down, so does the number of growing follicles (cysts containing an egg). The few growing follicles the lower the amh level. You blood level does not vary much from day to day, so your doctor could get that value (and perhaps an fsh) and give you some idea of how close you are. Let me comment on a couple of issues. First, your mother's age at menopause matters if she went through menopause naturally but not if the menopause was from surgery. Also, the mid-40's is not abnormal though a bit early as the average age is 51 years. Second, as you will learn from reading some of the links i provided, there is considerable variation in timing. Next. Let me say that the symptoms of menopause vary as well. Some women suffer from many effects of losing the estrogen hormone: hot flushes, mood changes etc. You are not necessarily doomed to have the same reaction or even the same symptoms. I hope this information helps. Best wishes and please do not worry too much about menopause which is normal and usually not a horrible experience. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I haven't smoked in years I plan on smoking again in about 2 weeks just once for the feeling. How long will it for my system to get clean?
Do not do it!!: One of the biggest problems with stopping smoking is that sometimes people get overconfident and think they can just smoke one again, "for the feeling" or for some other reason. Don't do it. The risks of falling back into the habit/addiction are too great. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm 17 my bf is 21. He came in me & got me plan b I'm having second thoughts about taking it? If I take after 5 days? It's only been 2 days since
How often can I take plan b? I already took two pills about a week in between each. Had an accident today (a week after) should I take another plan b?
Here's the real deal: I don't believe that taking another Plan B is likely to harm you (but you never say never in medicine). The real issue is that you need to get on some birth control that you trust. This worry isn't good for anybody. Make an appt with your doctor or with your local planned parenthood and explore your options for a birth control method you can trust. Btw, keep using condoms for infection protection. ...Read more

I took a Plan B pill about 3.5 days after sex, the package said before 72hours though. Will it still help? how much?
Less likely to help: It is significantly less likely to help, hard to put an exact number on it. Keep in mind not every act of intercourse leads to pregnancy, there are many factors involved. Please be responsible in the future, if not interested in pregnancy please use birth control or condoms or both. ...Read more
