The latter 2 are more serious and are accompanied by cough and fever ...Read more
Emily used depo before, she stopped using it 6 months ago. Took it again in October. In December she had sex 4-5 times w/ no condoms and her partner didn’t cum in her. Is there a high chance she’s pregnant or is she?
No: If Emily got the Depot in October, her chance of pregnancy from sex in December is very low, in the region of 1-2%. Hopefully, she can be advised to use protection against STDs also. If she plans to continue with Depot, she will need her next shot in January 2018, the date will depend on when her injection in October was administered. Hope this helps, best wishes ...Read more

My 2 year old daughter Emily is an extremely restless sleeper. Wakes at 11pm and struggles to get back to sleep. Not colic. Sometimes wide awake at until 2am. No allergies. Eats well. We're exhausted. Natural sedative for toddlers? Please help.

She should sleep in her own bed in her own room. There are sleep consultants available who would be able to help. Consult a paediatrician first to exclude medical reasons. ...Read more

Could very early ultrasound (5 weeks) be not accurate? It showed only 4 weeks, what doesn't match my ovultation. At 12 week it was correct...
That's correct: The accuracy is plus or minus a week or so. The prenatal ultrasound dating scan done at 8-11 weeks is more accurate. That means when the doctor says, "The scan dates your pregnancy at 9 weeks, " he is actually saying, "The scan dates your pregnancy at 8 to 10 weeks." In almost all normal pregnancies, the exact dates are unimportant. ...Read more

Usually, is the prognosis for impaired fasting glucose better/more reversible at early stages than late stages, like with many other problems?
You are correct: But let's put this in simple and true terms. The mainstay of staving off type II diabetes, given that the person has the genetic tendency, is physical exercise and to a lesser extent healthy eating / staying trim. The sooner a person goes about making this central to their life, the better. ...Read more

Why do some people who easily got pregnant complain about petty problems? Don't they realize many others are infertile?
No: Unfortunately, to patient's who get pregnant easily, there isn't any consideration given to others with conception difficulty since it doesn't have relativity to their own situation. However, if a friend who is experiencing infertility problems does not connote empathy, than that is a significant and not petty problem. ...Read more

Emergency contracept: Emergency contraception is only 95% effective if taken within 24 hours after unprotected intercourse so, if u r not having periods since March 23, it is time to check a pregnancy test to be sure that you aren't in that 5% for whom it doesn't work.

Had many early miscarriages and currently 6 weeks preg. Seem to decrease in preg symptoms. Normal or possible miscarriage?
Lmp and early vaginal ultrasound matched @ 6 weeks 5 days matched exactly. Does that mean I ovulated on cd14? 28 day cycles!
Likely so, but...: Life is not exact, no matter what the numbers show. A woman with 28-day cycles ovulates on day 14, but that means the same thing as ovulating on day 13 or 15. Dates and numbers are estimates, not to be thought of as "exact". For example, the due date is usually not the day the baby gets born, because babies are also born a day or a few days sooner or later. ...Read more
