When: When you are under stress (illness in your case) this can affect your hormones thus causing irregularities in your cycle. This often presents as spotting. Your period should follow shortly thereafter. If it does not, take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant then expect your period to normalize over the next few cycles. ...Read more

Start a new pack of brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Start a new pack of brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Check a PG test: Assuming that is negative, many pills do not build up enough tissue in the endometrium to cause a period and the way to show that is a pelvic ultrasound that I do in my patients to prove there are no problems. If that is normal you can either continue with the pills, as you do not have to have a period on the pills (many women like that) or switch to a higher dose pill to get periods. ...Read more

Start a new pill called brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Probably normal: Presuming your not pregnant, it is not uncommon for some pills to suppress uterine lining proliferation so much that there is no significant sloughing at the end of the cycle and, therefor, no period. "pill amenorrhea" as it is called, is normal and should not cause alarm. ...Read more

My period is due in 7 days and I would like to delay it. Can I start bc, progesterone, brevicon, (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) depo shot? I am not currently on any bc

My period is due in 7 days and I would like to delay it. Can I start bc, progesterone, brevicon, (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) depo shot? I am not currently on any bc

Nothing effective: Assuming you are correct in your timing, the only thing that will delay your period is pregnancy. That is clearly not the solution you are looking for. For future reference, you would need to start the pill, ideally, 2 months ahead of time and at least at the beginning of your cycle. ...Read more

Why do some children have allergies?

Why do some children have allergies?

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read more

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more

Can a parents' allergies to various foods be passed on to their children?

No: The condition of being allergic is certainly an inherited property. Often, that tendancy is greater in children whose biological mother has allergies.

Is Zantac (ranitidine) (histamine blocker) used for children for allergies.?

Add-on for hives: Ranitidine (zantac), although it's a different kind of histamine blocker (h2 for acid vs h1 for allergies), has been shown to have some anti-allergy properties, especially when used with an h1 blocker like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for hives. There was actually one study that showed benefit in nasal allergies, but I don't know anyone that prescribes it for that purpose. ...Read more
