Every time i eat pizza(from anywhere) i always end up waking up in the middle of the night nauseated and i throw up a few times. Why?
Every time I'm on my period, I end up having diarrhea at least 2 to 3 times each day or just once during my cycle, is that common?
Yes-Prostaglandins: Prostaglandins are a group of chemicals that are produced by the break down of the uterine lining. They cause cramping, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and can even cause fever. NSAIDS (naproxen and ibuprofen) block them and taken before your period starts can help with all these symptoms and even decrease blood flow. Birth control pills can do the same. Hope this helps. ...Read more

UTI?: If this is something new, sometimes having urinary frequency (symptoms you described) can be a sign of a urinary tract infection. I would recommend following up with your doctor to have a urine specimen drawn. If this is not a new problem, I would consider evaluation for overactive bladder as well. Either way, close follow up with your PCP is mandatory. ...Read more
Menstrual cycle: I think you probably mean your luteal phase. While mile monthly periods can be quite rough, thankfully, they're not lethal ;) The luteal phase occurs with the forming of the corpus luteum from the follicle that has recently released the egg during ovulation. So, essentially, the luteal phase begins at ovulation, and lasts about 14 days, unless you become pregnant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can zantac (ranitidine) 150 cause decrease in appetite? took a few times in a week, appetite lower. Once stopped it was fine
Probably not.: Reduced appetite is not a side effect of Zantac (ranitidine). Appetite is controlled by hormones released from your brain some of which are released into your stomach to increase or decrease hunger. Although Zantac (ranitidine) works inside your stomach to reduce stomach acid, it does not change the levels of these hormones, especially with using it just once or twice versus every day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am currently 18weeks pregnant and I was prescribed smz-tmp ds. I have taken 4 days of it 2 times a day. I stopped. Will my baby be ok??
Probably: Not sure the reason you were told to take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) DS. There is some crossing over thru the placenta to baby but most dangerous time in pregnancy is 1st third. That's when all organs have been laid out. After that they get bigger. Everything in medicine as in life is weighing risk-to-benefit. Your doc thought the risk to u of taking the med was less than the benefit of taking it. Good luck. ...Read more

Masturbation: Your growth and height have absolutely nothing to do with masturbation, which is harmless no matter how often. However, 10 times daily certainly is a lot.

Bleaching cream: The underarms can get darker from irritation from hair removal, depilatories, waxing, shaving. Bleaching creams may help temporarily but discolorations will continue to worsen if you continue to use the above methods. Laser hair removal is a longer term solution that would help by eliminating hairs so you would not have to do daily treatments that irritate the skin causing discoloration. ...Read more
