Fetal heart beats can be heard, generally by the second trimester, by outside devices placed on lower stomach. If you haven't had a physical recently, you should get one. If indicated, your doctor can order an abdominal US to clarify any swelling or source of inflammation in your abdomen. ...Read more

Im 10weeks pregnant Doc did an ultrasound cause they didn't hear the heart beat The baby is fine but they found a tumor in my uterus doc didn't say much?

Don't worry: More than likely, if there is a "tumor" in your uterus it is what is called a fibroid (leiomyoma). These are very, very common and not cancerous. If it is not very big, it is unlikely to affect your pregnancy, but your OB will probably just keep an eye on it throughout the pregnancy. ...Read more

The best recommendation is to have an ekg done and perhaps wear a 24 hour cardiac (holter) monitor. That will help you and your doctor determine the cause of your rapid heart beat. ...Read more

Not to my understand: While people react differently to different medications, there's no way of knowing in advance which testosterone will cause what side effect. All the hormone preparations list tachycardia or fast heart rate as a side effect. There's no specific way to mitigate these side effects but generic cardiac meds can be used. Talk to your prescriber or use HealthTap Prime to discuss your individual case. ...Read more
