Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?
Timing is everything: It looks as if you took the pill very quickly. So your chances at preventing pregnancy are good. Likely you have a 60-75% chance of preventing a pregnancy. This assumes, by the way, that were ovulating when you had the unprotected intercourse, and were going to get pregnant. It's possible that you had no possibility of getting pregnant because no egg was release or available for implantation. ...Read more

I have tumor on left temple for a few months... it is 1 inch across and 1/2 inch high. Can I split the skin and take it out my self? Jane van Dis
Try to remove: Depending on age, the most common cause of a large painless nodular lesion of the temple is keratosis. These lesions never bleed since they represent accumulation of skin in layers and at times can be peeled off. Other nodular lesions like an amelanotic nevus would bleed if irritated as would be true of an exophytic squamous malignancy. ...Read more

A sticky white discharge can be normal during the second half of your cycle. The question is whether or not it is causing irritation, itching, and/or odor. If this is the case then you may be dealing with a vaginal infection such as yeast, bacteria, or even an std like gonorrhea or chlamydia. In regard to your second concern, if you have not had a period then a pregnancy test should be done. Discharge can increase during pregnancy, so this is a possibility.
Good luck. ...Read more
No, but...: ...Psychoanalysts view fugue as a type of dissociation, a psychological defense mechanism that results in a drastic modification of one's sense of personal identity in order to avoid emotional distress. Once medical causes are ruled out (e.g. Narcolepsy, automatisms of complex partial seizures), psychotherapy is the treatment of choice. In severe cases, antipsychotics may be part of the treatment. ...Read more

For 1 day only?: Of course this isn't a nutritionally healthy food plan for long term, as it isn't sustainable. It provides mostly starch -- and little protein, minerals, or vitamins. Eating this for one day only, though, isn't likely to harm a basically healthy person. If the person is diabetic, blood sugars could be affected. ...Read more

Got operated for harnia in Dec 2013. Now occurring again within an year. What are the complications involved? Can dis be operated again within year?
Hernia: Any time you get multiple surgeries in the same area, the risk increases for scar tissue and weakening of the muscles, etc. Hernia repairs have come a long way though, and you will need to discuss with your doctor about different options that may include mesh, etc. That may strengthen the area more so than in the past. It can certainly be corrected again within the year. Best wishes. ...Read more

Probiotics: A gastroenteritis, or "stomach virus" is a miserable thing to have. Mostly, staying hydrated, and eating plain foods will keep you strong while your body purges the illness. However, sometimes probiotics can help with the diarrhea effects and regulating how the intestines function. For parents, a motility agent like Imodium (loperamide) can also help. It can last several days, up to a week or two even. ...Read more
