Do obs still use forceps? What for?

Do obs still use forceps? What for?

To Save Your Baby: I've performed forceps deliveries in emergencies where a c-sec would have taken too long & waiting placed the infant at significant risk for brain injury. It is an excellent tool but fraught with danger if your doc is inexperienced or untrained. I totally agree with dr. Drezaliu. Unfortunately i don't believe forcep deliveries are taught any more. I couldn't even find a pic with proper technique. ...Read more

Why is there still so much obesity in the united states?

Why is there still so much obesity in the united states?

Lifestyle.: First, technology has made most of us quite sedentary, and as such we don't expend nearly as many calories as we used to. Second, busy lifestyles tend to beget grab-and-go types of foods, which are generally less healthy and actual relaxed sit-down meals. That's one way to see it. ...Read more

Hurt ribs ob right side 28 days ago not as painful but still hurt and pop when I move or pick up heavy things feels like ribs rub together. What is it?

Hurt ribs ob right side 28 days ago not as painful but still hurt and pop when I move or pick up heavy things feels like ribs rub together. What is it?

Ligament damage?: Still having pain a month after an injury suggests it was reasonably serious. Intercostal (between the ribs) ligaments help hold the ribs in place and may have been stretched, strained or torn with your injury. If the ligaments are loose, the ribs can move out of place and feel like popping. I believe it is time for you to have a good exam by your doc/orthopedist and perhaps some imaging. ...Read more

I am experiencing pain upon insertion & post coital bleeding. I went to the ob & all the tests were negative.Its still happening, what should I do?

Endometrial polyps: If there is pain on insertion, then use more lubricant, and try to relax your pelvic muscles (reverse kegel maneuver) to prevent pain and actual trauma to the vaginal skin during intercourse. If the local OB doctor can't find a cause for your bleeding, then hysteroscopy may be something that you may want to have, to look for endometrial polyps. ...Read more

Go see a physician: Unfortunately Bartholin's cysts can become a chronic issue. If the cyst is becoming enlarged and is painful you should go to see a physician and have it evaluated for drainage. They might also need to give you antibiotics. When Bartholin's cysts become a recurrent problem, your physician may recommend a minor surgical procedure called a marsupialization, to help prevent recurrence. ...Read more

Would not count: on those types of products for weight loss. Eat healthfully. Try to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 of fruit per day. Increase nutritional fiber. Avoid refined sugar & junk carbohydrates. Avoid alcohol, sweetened juices, soda & caffeinated beverages. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep/night. Hydrate w/ at least 64 oz of water/day.

Why do people still think it is ok to give candy as reward even with all the childhood obesity?

Why do people still think it is ok to give candy as reward even with all the childhood obesity?

More complex!: 2 issues: is it necessary to offer any rewards period? Does offering candy cause obesity? Your question is difficult to comment on since obesity prevention's low lying fruit to chip away at is sugar and processed foods. Portion control, activity, decreased screen time, and a diet with more veggies, fruits, and roots is the rule one should really set. Limits and rules will carry families through. ...Read more
