There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off depo do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable. ...Read more

Which natural remedies can I take for anovulation?

There are several...: Some natural therapies may work, depending on why someone is not ovulating. For example, if it's due to pcos, then weight loss may help (if overweight). Acupuncture has helped some of my patients.. If it's anovulation due to anorexia, being too thin, or exercising too much, then weight gain may help (along with decreasing exercise). I hope this helps! ...Read more

Healthy weight loss: A lot of that initial weight loss is likely water weight. Your weight loss will not continue to be this rapid. The most important issue is sustainability of your healthy eating, and exactly what you mean by "healthy eating". Check out "http://nutritiondata.self.com/tools/calories-burned" to calculate how many cal/day you burn. Target a 500 cal/day deficit with good eating. Check with your doctor ...Read more

Have any of you ever heard of the fertility supplement fertibella conceive easy and would you recommend it?

Not recommended: Why would you need a fertility supplement? Why would you put anything in your body when you don't know what it is, what it's supposed to do, what harm it could cause you? Particularly if you're trying to get pregnant, why put any foreign and potentially toxic substance in your body? If the product worked, don't you thing it would be prescription rx and recommended by fertility specialists? ...Read more

Further tests needed: Hi Angelica, Your doctor should schedule HCG levels for you at least twice over the next several days and then a followup ultrasound in 1 week. The HCG levels should nearly double in 2 days. If you are around 4 or 5 weeks, a fetal pole should be seen in a week. Let your doctor know immediately if you have any bleeding, pain or pass any tissue. Dr. S. ...Read more

I want to know if Valium 10 mg decreases serotonin. I take from eight days ago, prescription because I can not sleep. Is there anything better?

Sure there is better: Angelica, It is no only way to deal with insomnia at your age. I would ask my patients in such situations to start therapy if psychotrauma is the cause; check the thyroid and cortisol level; possibly melatonin level. I Am not sure if Valium decrease level of serotonin to be concern about it. It is common practice to combine SSRI with benzodiazepines. ...Read more

Donq quai: I agree with dr. Ali about the typical uses of dong quai. However, some compounds in the plant may increase the effect of ssri's. Also, combining the 2 may risk bleeding. Most likely this would be easy bruising or petechial (tiny) hemorrhages that look like a rash. I would be very cautious with this combination. Depending on the effect you're seeking, there may be safer options. ...Read more
