At what point does it become too late to find a new doctor?

At what point does it become too late to find a new doctor?

<=28 weeks: Usually you should have selected an obstetrician and received prenatal care since early to mid first trimester. With individual exception, you usually will not be accepted by a new practice entering your third trimester (about 28 weeks). This is because the accepting doctor has additional risk in caring for you and it is often too late to correct problems he/she may have addressed earlier. ...Read more

Is it true that you have to wait at least a week before you can find out if your pregnant or not? Can i test then? Help please

Myths: Yes. More than a week. Don't you remember that it takes one to five days for pregnancy after sex and then the fetus is not connected to the mother's body for fourteen days after conception. So, pregnancy testing is to be done the morning after the first day of a missed period. Not sooner. No matter what you read or hear from your friends. ...Read more

Why  if I stare at something for a long time and not blink I can make it go blurry and edventually be able to see two of the object?

Maintain focus: this is sometimes a meditation practice. I would not suggest staring at a TV screen/computer, phone or similar. some people don't recommend staring at candles either, but there have been many people in the world, brilliant geniuses, like Leonardo Da Vinci who uses this meditation practice to expand his mind. keep focused on the object. see two as right&Left eye are seeing it instead of as one. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Scrotal US is performed by trained technician - male or female inside a special suite equipped with modern ultrasound unit so to visualize, supplement & complement what detailed Hx + physical exam can not do to assure. So, the procedure would not hurt and just wear loose causal pants for easy dropping it, but you will be well covered and cared with professionalism and courtesy. Good luck ... ...Read more

How do you know if you will have a pituitary tumor or some issue with it where you end up growing VERY tall? It is one of my fears.

How do you know if you will have a pituitary tumor or some issue with it where you end up growing VERY tall? It is one of my fears.

Pituitary giant?: Hi. A growth hormone secreting pituitary tumor before/during puberty will cause growth of long bones and produce pituitary gigantism (as opposed to acromegaly after bone growth plate fusion). You don't state your age in your profile. Maybe you have pituitary gigantism. But maybe you just have an odd, irrational fear. See your doctor. Pituitary gigantism does not take a rocket scientist to diagnose ...Read more

When is it ok to take a newborn out to visit relatives, i know they're more likely to get sick then us.

When is it ok to take a newborn out to visit relatives, i know they're more likely to get sick then us.

Hard to say: To me the scariest issue in the 1st 2mo is an infant with fever. Thats because some of mothers germs can quietly transfer to baby at birth ; weeks later become a major infection. It is good not to expose your newborn to a lot of people in the first 6-8 wks when a fever might be a terrible germ or uncle freds cold. If around, they must practice good hand washing ; staw away if ill. ...Read more

Is it possible to get a positive pregnancy test with a low, hard cervix? Or is that no way to tell at all? When does your cervix change in pregnancy?

Yes yes and varies: It's possible to have a positive pregnancy test regardless of what the cervix feels like. The location and consistency of the cervix is no way to tell if there is a pregnancy.

Have been wanting to say something to therapist and doctor for a long time but each time I can't, is it acceptable to write or is this too weird ?

Have been wanting to say something to therapist and doctor for a long time but each time I can't, is it acceptable to write or is this too weird ?

No, Not Weird.Honest: This is the age of e-mail and it shouldn't hurt to ask if you can send them something that way.That may start a meaningful conversation. If you don't have e-mail then you could use handwriting and take it or send it to the doctor and therapist.It's too bad you don't feel comfortable talking face to face,but that happens.The important thing is to settle whatever issues you have. With anyone, really ...Read more

At what point in a pregnancy will you start to get swollen gums?

At what point in a pregnancy will you start to get swollen gums?

Hopfully never.: If you don't have anything irritating the gums, they normally wont swell up. An abnormal swelling of your gums while you are pregnant is an over reaction of your body to an irritant, mainly dental plaque. If you brush and floss well through out the pregnancy, you should not have any swelling. If there is an irritant then around the end of the first trimester is when it begins. ...Read more

HSV?: Are you sure you're not talking about hcv? There's nothing new that i'm aware of for hsv, and little reason for new drugs. The drugs available now (valacyclovir, acyclovir, and famciclovir) are generic, cheap, safe, well tolerated, and effective. ...Read more

I have an appn't this week with a new periodontist. If i find that in mid cleaning that it hurts too much can I tell her to stop and leave the office?

I have an appn't this week with a new periodontist. If i find that in mid cleaning that it hurts too much can I tell her to stop and leave the office?

Discuss before: I would suggest that you call the office and discuss your concerns, preferably with the periodontist, but at least with the receptionist. You might want to consider a consultation first to see what treatment is needed and how it is best handled to keep you comfortable. I would hope that you would want to be as courteous to others as you would want them to be with you. ...Read more

Like to go to clubs. Not so great looking . But I wanna know if there's a big bulge you can get to put in your pants?

Yes: If this fits with your idea of allure, assistance is available. You need to go on line and google cosmetic aids. You might have to sort through a bunch of stuff for other parts of the body but will eventually find the right stuff including the proper underwear to hold these items. Hopefully this will give you the confidence to circulate. ...Read more
