Not related to shape: Your migraine headaches are unlikely to be related to your head shape. You should see a neurologist for help with treatment of the headaches. At this time, altering your head shape will be a very difficult issue since the bones of your skull have been fused for many years. ...Read more

My parents hate my boyfriend & are pressuring me to break up.Because he doesn't have a uni degree. He doesnt drink or take drugs, treats me well. Help?

Not really a medical: This is not really a medical question, so I do not think any of us are in a position to comment on it. I would encourage you to work out this problem w/ ur parents if u can. Barring that, consider legal help. If u r feeling helpless or depressed b/c you "have" to make a decision, TTYD about counseling & possibly psychiatry. If u r physically being threatened (even by ur parents), talk to da police ...Read more

I was prescribed one dose, 4 pills of flagyl for trich. I took 2 pills and five days later took the other 2. Is it still effective?

I was prescribed one dose, 4 pills of flagyl for trich. I took 2 pills and five days later took the other 2. Is it still effective?

Not reliable: For trichomonas, right? Why didn't you take the full dose as prescribed? There's no research on 1 g of metronidazole (Flagyl®) taken 5 days apart. Most likely it would work, but no way to be sure. Speak with the doctor or clinic where it was prescribed. Probably they will recommend re-treatment with the proper dose. Or maybe re-test in 2-3 weeks, but only with PCR, not microscopy or culture. ...Read more
