Smoking weed? First try.For anxiety,panic attack,disability l/t pain/relax;opposed to Dizapam/codine?
Also on Sertraline 150&flu. Concerns? Dangerous?
THC can be helpful: Chris, If you have found smoking marijuana to be helpful in reducing your anxiety and panic attacks I would suggest you try other oral forms of TCH to see if you have the same level of benefit. I would also encourage you to consider forms of exercise and exertion that are within your ability i.e. swimming, rowing , walking, biking. If you don't have an accountability partner you may consider one. ...Read more

Took Clomid (clomiphene) 100mg cd3-7,trigger shot cd 11. 7 mature follicles. IUI cd12 30hrs post trigger & cd 13 49hrs post trigger. What would adding FSH cd9 do?
CC/IUI: Some stimulation protocols combine CC with small doses of hMG/FSH added later. These protocols are a little bit arbitrary, meaning they reflect "recipes" that an individual doctor has found helpful, not a general practice. You'd need to ask your own doctor why he/she wants the FSH on CD9. ...Read more
TTC,in fertility treatment for 3yrs- did 8 cycles of IUI.Doc say IVF is next.i m worried abt hormones used.want true opinon on cons of IVF n cancer ?
Long discussion: The decision to proceed with IVF is a hard one and should involve a detailed conversation with you fertility specialist. The risks should be discussed and weighed against your desire to have a child. The hormonal exposure during treatment is lower than the hormonal elevation you will experience during pregnancy Pregnancy causes a HUGE surge in hormones way beyond fertility medication. ...Read more

Question on etg testing....drank 13.4oz of 80 proof vodka, drinking ended Sunday at 9pm, took etg test Wednesday at 7pm, thoughts?
Thoughts? alcoholism: is my first one. You drank the equivalent of almost 10 standard drinks, and I believe you are being tested for alcohol use for a good reason. If you drank that much in one sitting, it is highly likely that you have an alcohol use disorder. I suggest you develop more concern for getting needed help than you have about getting caught. I hope you make some better decisions and get that help soon. ...Read more

Hasn't been reported: but am not sure anybody has ever studied that. Alcohol may reduce the efficacy of some vaccines, but am not aware that methamphetamine (or any other stimulant) has any similar effect. However, smoking methamphetamine does many other horrible things, particularly when chronic- it can cause heart attack, arrhythmia, stroke, sudden death, psychosis, premature aging, tooth loss and many other horrors ...Read more

You are not pregnant: I believe it is well known that you cannot get pregnant during your normal menstrual cycle. Thus all of these tests, unnecessary as they were, are of course negative. I would hope you have a prenatal book or a good female health guide at home to read whenever you have these kind of questions. I think it is vital for females to have information at hand to learn about their own bodies. ...Read more

Fertlity: You appear to have secondary hypogonadism. Your low testosterone level deserves a pituitary MRI to rule out pituitary disease. All hypogonadism impacts fertility. Testosterone does not improve this. One can use HCG injections to stimulate sperm counts when fertility is desired. ...Read more
Clomid (clomiphene) is an estro receptor.Brain needs estrogen surge to release lh.Which means ppl on Clomid (clomiphene) don't have LH surge?How egg burst out?
Got confused?: You are getting yourself confused. Clomid (clomiphene) is not an 'estro receptor' at all; it is mainly an estrogen receptor antagonist, but it has pro-estrogenic actions in some tissues and anti-estrogenic actions in others. Women on Clomiphene do mostly have an lh surge; not surging means the Clomiphene dose was likely too low. ...Read more
Possibly: It is hard to know exactly what the drug test includes, and I am not sure of the sensitivity of the saliva test, but ritalin (methylphenidate) is an amphetamine, and drug screens often include amphetamines. If you are on a prescription drug that is legally prescribed, you should divulge this to your employer before the test. ...Read more
Sheehan syndrome or hypopituitarism. Does this sound like it... Low t3, (liothyronine) low-norm TSH, low-norm estrogen, low-norm acth, insulin sensitive, hypokalemia?
No: Since you have not listed your periods having stopped, the chances of this being Simmond's / Sheehan's are slim-to-none. What I'd like you to do is form a relationship with a patient, understanding physician who's good at endocrinology, and can help you manage the big picture -- while solving whatever physical problems may exist, find ways of turning bad stress into eu-stress in your life. ...Read more
