3 months pregnantusedlysol cleaning wipe, opened milk carton before hands washed. Residue from wipe maybe on carton I drank from. Should I be concerned?

Only enough to learn: How awful it tastes! In small amounts it is not poisonous even to infants/toddlers, so you probably are okay. It's unlikely that your being pregnant changes that - but you can call poison control to be sure. Although we all do it from time to time, the bigger risk could be drinking from a milk carton. It's a place that bacteria might be quite happy and also a way to share germs with other folk. ...Read more

15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.

Cleaning products: Lysol wipes are safe and peroxide used topically is safe as well, I'm not aware of any pregnancy warnings. The fan is helpful and if there are fumes, the window should be open.

There are however lots of natural cleaning solutions that you can make yourself that would be safer. ...Read more

Had intercourse on the day I started ovulating after we was done went to clean up wiped what looked like a mucus plug with a little bit of blood on it?

Probably normal.: During ovulation your cervix will emit a clear, stretchy discharge. The post coital bleeding you have described, "a little bit of blood", may be normal. However, infection can also cause this type of bleeding. So, a visit to the gynecologist is warranted. Also, if you are trying to get pregnant make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin. ...Read more

In interim, if you can dampen the toilet tissues it may help to prevent the irritation which may occur from excessive wiping. ...Read more
