When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Menopause pregnancy: In menopause the ovaries are no longer producing eggs. So pregnancy isn't possible. Menopause is officially defined when a woman has gone 1 year without a period because of the permanent end of ovarian function. Until it's been a full year, it's possible to have release of eggs, therefore possible pregnancy. ...Read more
Depends: Usually during second trimester when the weight of the fetus starts pressing on the veins in the pelvis. As a result of effects of hormones during pregnancy the circulation in the veins slow down and hence may result in hemorrhoidal engorgement earlier. It is similar to varicose veins which are also common during pregnancy. ...Read more

I hear some women say they conceived during their menstrual. Is it possible hat sperm can live through your menstrual? I didn't think it can
Yes you can..: Sloughing-off of the lining of your uterus happens regularly during the cycle and contactions of the uterus expell the contents (blood and tissue making up your period). Some people experience very intense contractions/cramps needing medications to help with pain etc..Contractions of labor is same=contractions of the uterus to push baby out etc.. If severe symptoms, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Absolutely: treatment of an STD as soon as possible increases the chance of getting pregnant. Antibiotics do not interfere with conception but scarring from an untreated STD can cause problems. Do make sure that your partner is also treated before you have sex again. Curing a STD does not keep you from getting it again. Good luck. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ask your implanter.: There are too many variables to give an overall accurate answer in all settings. From the skin wound standpoint, as soon as they say you can immerse it in a bathtub, you could swim. For a new pacemaker implant, you cannot raise your arm above your head until the wires heal in place; typically after a month. This would impact the reach for most swimming strokes. Ask your cardiologist. ...Read more
Wouldn't worry: I detest wading pools for toddlers because so many would pass parasites like Giardia, but not threadworms. An older kid swimming in a regular pool is not a problem.It is the dry eggs in bedclothes/sheets that pass this problem.The pool water will disperse & neutralize them ...Read more
A few weeks:
It takes a few weeks. Mostly we're waiting for the ear drum to heal around the grommet itself. After that swimming is generally ok. If you can get the soft earplugs that just sit on top and don't insert into the ear canal, that's better. I'd also stick with surface swimming in a swimming pool or ocean only. Avoid diving and lakes/ponds which can have higher amounts of bacteria. ...Read more
Yes.: A Nexplanon insertion leaves a similar small needle skin wound that a blood test does. Provided the wound is healing well, and shows no signs of an infection (redness, warmth, discharge, excessive pain), you can keep the area covered with a bandaid while swimming, then clean the area with soap and water afterwards, pat area dry and reapply a clean bandaid. ...Read more

Mmmmmm...: I'm not sure we'd be the right people to answer this question for you. Skin grafts can be quite fragile at times. Have you been following up with the surgeon who did them? That would be the physician to really know how these have healed over the past 10 months and if something like swimming would be safe. Lots of bacteria in water, you know. ...Read more
I'm about 22 weeks pregnet and I have genital herpies. I was wondering if I could go in a swimming pool without putting my baby or myself at risk?
Currently treating vaginal fungal infection with clatrimazole(?), can I go swimming in pools or sea? How long to wait? Im on holiday, I want to enjoy!
OK to swim: This doesn't need to interfere with swimming or any other holiday activity (except maybe vaginal sex!). If you're having significant external genital symptoms (e.g. labial or vulvar irritation and itching), some vigorous physical activities (e.g. biking, running, etc) might be a bit uncomfortable, but not harmful. Just use the medication as directed and do whatever isn't bothersome. ...Read more
Depends.: Usually patients are able to swim within a few weeks after this procedure. However, every patient should run this question by their plastic surgeon who knows their situation best ( for example whether or not they are healing nicely without complication) and is ultimately responsible for their care. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
