Hi ihave started to drink 1 cup of green tea in the morning and i drink 1 cup of slimatee at night and i havent got my period yet. It is late.

Might not be the tea: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

Will I be able to drink a glass of wine of beer in my last trimester of pregnancy?

Will I be able to drink a glass of wine of beer in my last trimester of pregnancy?

Not advisable: It is highly unlikely that very occasional low-dose use of alcohol (like a small glass of champagne at a celebration) will do any harm, but why bother? I tell all my pregnant patients that they should avoid ANYTHING that isn't essential for their health during their pregnancy. If you are 46 years old, this is already a high risk pregnancy, and I would not chance it, since one can lead to two etc. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and drank an 8 oz glass of hibiscus tea. It's the first tea I've drank since pregnancy started. Should I go to ER?

Problems?: Are you having any side effects from drinking the tea? You can certainly go to the ER to be checked out (they will send you to L&D) but you did not mention any problems. Just drinking tea is not a cause for a hospital trip. ...Read more

Am having a surgery for the first time in my life and am a coffee drinker i drink 4 to 5 cups a day should I stop drink cafe?

Need more info: It all depends on the type of surgery you are going to have. On the average one or two cups of coffee a day should have not effect on you unless you are having heart surgery. Four or more cups of coffee is too much. Tell your surgeon that you are a coffee drinker and make him/her aware of this fact well before the surgery. ...Read more

I drank 2 cups of vodka on Saturday and I drank cranberry juice all day Sunday and then got called in on Monday to take a urine test will I pass ?

What kind of test?: Your urine will contain ethyl glucuronide (etg) and depending on the cut off level set to for the test, you are likely to test positive. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Yes: There is no known safe level of alcohol consumption in pregnancy. You should not drink alcohol when pregnant.

I am 20 y/o and smoke at least one cigarette a day and i had blood in my cough and today had blood in my urine can you tell me what's wrong with me?

I am 20 y/o and smoke at least one cigarette a day and i had blood in my cough and today had blood in my urine can you tell me what's wrong with me?

You are smoking: What's wrong is that you are smoking! stop immediately. The blood is possibly due to infection. You are placing yourself at increased risk of infection but more seriously, cancer. Coughing up blood can be a sign of neck, throat, or lung cancer. Blood in the urine can be a sign of bladder cancer. Hopefully, that's not the case but you need to stop now before other serious problems arise. ...Read more

I am 20 weeks pregnant. If I had my 12 ounces of shrimp a day earlier than I normally do (day 6 of the week), will my baby be okay or was that to soon?

Ok: Most dietary guidelines during pregnancy are just that- guidelines. A little more shrimp or tuna than suggested is unlikely to cause a problem. Do avoid alcohol and all types of drugs unless prescribed by your doctor. ...Read more
