Post exposure rabies series unfinished after 3 rv shots due to animal being cleared and sent home. Am I still protected like pre exposure 3 shots?
I broke out in hives and went to the er. They gave me a few shots and they cleared up until the next morning. Nothings helping : (?
Antihistamines help: Your medicines from the er may have worn off. If they gave you prescriptions you should get them filled. Antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine (benadryl) or Cetirizine (zyrtec) should be taken continuously until your regular doctor can evaluate you. Be cautious of sleepiness with the use of around the clock antihistamines. ...Read more
WebMd says body clears HPV virus after few yrs. T or F? Does it go away 4ever? Dr dx w/hpv @22 but I got all 3 shots yrs ago b4 prot sex. I have gen w
Generally, yes. The: virus eventually clears up. However, the damage to the cells on the cervix in particular can be long-lasting and may eventually evolve in cervical cancer. Immunization against HPV protects against the most common strains that cause genital warts and the strains most likely to cause cervical cancer. But, b/c it doesn't protect against ALL strains, it's important to continue getting Pap testing. ...Read more

Probably allergic to: Something that is still in his system. So initial symptoms were controlled by medicines but came back when they wore off.

Probably yes, but...: You were treated for gonorrhea (the ceftriaxone shot) as well as chlamydia. Either or both probably now are gone. However, it is recommended that people wait at least a week before starting to have sex again, and then only with a treated partner. But if you just can't wait, or if partner insists, it probably won't hurt to have sex as long as the partner also has been treated and symptoms improved. ...Read more

Clear discharge right before my first cycle after first depo shot, has continued along with spotting. Is it from the depo?
In the 28w scan when they didn't get a clear shot of her spine the report said questionable sacrococcygeal open neural tube defect?
Get another scan: Scan quality varies with the equipment used and the experience of the tech. Some physicians spend most of their work day doing high resolution scans that are the most specific for determining what is going on. I would check with the OB and review the scan. See if a better scan is available or what else they can do to confirm what is going on. ...Read more

I got my depo shot, and every time I do, a week later I have so much clear white discharge & end up with a perineum tear. Why? How to treat the tear?
Needs an exam: It sounds like you have a recurring genital ulceration. The timing with Depo is likely coincidental. The most common cause of a recurrent genital ulceration is genital herpes. A doctor needs to do an exam when the lesion is present to do testing. Other causes are possible too but an exam will be needed to sort this out. ...Read more

Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is associated with abnormal bleeding. If your endometrial lining is irregular due to depot, the physical aspect of intercourse can cause it to release and bleed.
You should also consider cervix infection or inflammation. You might see your doctor to make sure there is no infection. ...Read more

Been on depo-provera for 5 yrs. Last shot March 2014. Aug 31 noticed clear dc w/blood. Sept 6 after sex just blood. Today clear discharge?
Time to visit doctor: Since your last depot shot was more than 4 months ago (recommended interval between shots is 3 months), you are not fully protected. While you will get tested for pregnancy before the next shot, you should also get evaluated for any STD if your symptoms and vaginal discharge persists. ...Read more
My right eye is blood shot. It goes dry if I don't blink often enough but is really watery wen I blink. I can't c clearly out of right eye.
Better lubrication: Adequate tears are necessary to lubricate the top layer of the cornea, the clear dome over the fron of your eye and the conjunctiva, the "skin" over your eye ball. When they are insufficient, small defects can occur in the top layer, exposung nerves underneath- and this causes discomfort, sandy or gritty feeling, pain and redness. You start to develop reflexed tearing. ...Read more

I'm on the shot and don't have a period. But I feel as though I have period symptoms but no blood. My vagina has a nasty oder and leaks clear stuff?
We've did a skin biopsy due to a rash. Results were negative for any skin problems. But cortisone shot cleared them up for 3 wks. What would be cause?
Different reasons: Sometimes with the biopsy it is hard to determine the cause of a non specific rash When cortisone works it usually indicates an inflammatory process and the cortisone in some people only lasts a few weeks If it comes back and it is worse then get a second opinion and another biopsy Sometimes if you tell provider the shot worked they will recommend a steroid cream if the biopsy is negative ...Read more

Can you have dark and light brown, dark and light red spotting? Sometimes clear discharge. Still after you are off of the Depo-Provera shot for 3 months?

I'm having a clear boogery discharge & wondering if its normal when im 20 days w/o my p. Last period was 6/03/13, last Depo-Provera shot 12/2012, curious now?
Take pregnancy test: Your clear discharge may or may not be normal. However, if you've been engaging in unprotected sex off Depo-Provera and you're more than 4 weeks past your last period, it's time time to take a home pregnancy test. Some women will experience some vaginal discharge during pregnancy. If your hpt is negative & you want to get pregnant, keep having unprotected sex. But if u don't want to get pregnant, see doc. ...Read more

I had an allergic reaction to epoxy resin for crafts, how long before a cortisone shot clears up a severe rash on my hands and wrists?
Contact dermatitis: It really depends on several factors. Did you get all of the material off your skin? How long was it in contact with your skin? Is this the first or 2nd time you have had this reaction? How much "cortisone" was in the injection? Most reactions clear in a week. Sometimes a 2nd injection may be necessary. In that case, figure two weeks. But is should get better each day. ...Read more

3 days late on my period. Clear thin discharge. Random lower back pain. Had unproctected sex a few times while on the shot. Should I expect a period?
My bf and I had unprotected sex he pulled out after words got my period for the second time recieved 4 booster shots now no period but clear discharge?
Booster shots?: If you've had two monthly periods since that unsafe sex experience it's not too likely you are pregnant, but now you've missed one w/out another unsafe sex incident - right? Do a test and/or have an exam to discover what's going on and to get good conseling on how to be safe from unwanted pregnancy and STDs. I can't guess what shots you mean. Be careful and well. ...Read more
I got off the Depo-Provera shot a month ago couple of days after had spotting now clear watery discharge, could I be able to get pregnant now or wait longer?
Now sounds good: You seem to be describing ovulation spotting and ovulatory mucous. Congratulations, we teach patients to look for these changes to help them know when to have intercourse for conception. Some even use this to avoid sex and avoid pregnancy (not very reliable for most). Good luck. ...Read more
My HSG reports tat I have bilateral proximal blockages but im taking Clomid (clomiphene) and hCG shot is it ok with some hope HSG cleared it wil I conceive?
Unlikely to conceive: Clomid (clomiphene) helps encourage follicle development. If your tubes are blocked this needs to be addressed before taking fertility drugs which should only be taken for a limited # of courses. If the hsg "cleared" the obstruction this would be evident on the films. You should see a qualified reproductive endocrinologist or generalist with expertise in managing infertility. ...Read more
