How does blue cohosh cause miscarriages?

Causes contractions

Contraction
Wisdom says: Avoid this in most all cases. There are certainly some who know how to make good use of ancient herbal therapies, but very few. This is powerful stuff and quite toxic. Action is complex, but vaso-constriction is part of it. It induces labor regardless of the readiness of the fetus. Steer clear or be prepared for facing a medical emergency.

Does blue cohosh cause an abortion at 5-6 weeks ?

Uncertain

Homeopathy
Although there is folklore indicating blue cohosh may cause early abortions there is no research to back this up. And it can have serious side effects such as diarrhea, stomach cramps, chest pain, increased blood pressure, increased blood sugar. Recommend avoiding this if you are pregnant.

im 35 weeks pregnant with my first child ive heard of blue cohosh to induce labor would it be safe to take blue cohosh after 37 weeks?

Myths

Labor
No. It is not safe. The last thing that develops well is the lungs. Once the lungs are mature enough to survive they begin to leak an enzyme that helps the pregnant uterus to begin labor. Please let this happen naturally.

Why do bruises turn black and blue?

Localized bleeding

Open-uri20120812-2091-189o4mv
Bruises or hematomas are actually localized areas of bleeding from direct trauma to the involved area. The coloration is initially very dark (black and blue) but quickly fades to lighter shades as the body and local tissues metabolize and breakdown the millions of red cells that make up the bruise. Darker coloration correlates with a denser volume of bleeding.

What causes black and blue toenails?

See a podiatrist

Open-uri20130708-31199-uuw1gj
If you are runner, this is a common injury called "black toe syndrome" due to blood bruises under the nail plate. Other causes of black toenails are infections - either bacterial or fungal. Another cause may be from a fracture in the last bone of the toe. In any case, see a podiatrist who can examine and treat any of these conditions and recommend ways to prevent recurrence.

Why does my baby have black and blue eyelids?

Childbirth?

Baby_acne
If you are referring to bruising around the eyes at the time of childbirth, this is very common. With a normal delivery, it can still be somewhat traumatic to the baby, and bruising can be seen around the eyes. Usually there is no injury. If you are unsure you can ask your pediatrician, or if this has developed at a later age, an immediate eye examination or discussion with peds is indicated.

My toe is black and blue what should I do ?

Was there an injury?

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
That is one way to develop black and blue. It also can be from a tight shoe or a circulatory dosorder. Is it painful.? Is the skin excessively cold or even hot. These all play into the possibilities. If this persists for more than a few days, or is swollen or cold, see a physician immediately. Try elevating foot.
