In the 1960s, many women who took a tranquilizer called thalidomide early in pregnancy gave birth to babies with phocomelia. So how are vaccines any different now since they haven't been tested on pregnant women?

In the 1960s, many women who took a tranquilizer called thalidomide early in pregnancy gave birth to babies with phocomelia. So how are vaccines any different now since they haven't been tested on pregnant women?

No testing?????????: You assume so much in your statement. Vaccines are one of the most monitored agents in the US over the past 3 decades. Each lot/dose are recorded in detail from creation to administration. An adverse events, from a bad reaction to a fetal abnormality would be reported to a central registry. Live vaccines are discouraged, but outcomes have shown no adverse effects. Dead vaccines are safe & effective ...Read more

In 2003, I had an epidural while I gave birth; the baby later died of aseptic meningitis. Should I be concerned about epidurals possibly causing this?

In 2003, I had an epidural while I gave birth; the baby later died of aseptic meningitis. Should I be concerned about epidurals possibly causing this?

Complex issue: I am very sorry about your child. Death in a child is never acceptable. However, you must not feel guilt or find fault. Meningitis happens, and cause is often never found. Epidurals must be done carefully and appropriately. They may cause meningitis in you - but not in the child. The recent scare about epidurals is being corrected aggressively. Trust your doctor. ...Read more

My cousin gave birth to a baby who has that harlequin disease. What is it?

My cousin gave birth to a baby who has that harlequin disease. What is it?

Harlequin ichthyosis: Is the result of a genetic mutation and results in thick and cracked skin. If this is the case then she will most likely see a dermatologist for long term assistance.
There is also a harlequin effect where one side of the baby turns red and the other white like a harlequin. This is due to immaturity of the vascular/sympathetic nervous system and improves with time. ...Read more

I have ibd. I gave birth to a baby 6 months ago. I want to now about effective home remedies for losing my wieght.

I have ibd. I gave birth to a baby 6 months ago. I want to now about effective home remedies for losing my wieght.

Weight loss: It is not uncommon in the early months after delivery to be struggling with you weight. The new baby disrupts routines in the household between family members, disrupts sleep habits, disrupts exercise habits, and disrupts eating habits. Rarely is there a moment to yourself, to focus on yourself. I don't think the ibd or a home remedy should be the focus. Rather, take 30-60 min a day for you. ...Read more

Could I be pregnant again if I had unprotected sex the day before I gave birth to my baby?

Could I be pregnant again if I had unprotected sex the day before I gave birth to my baby?

No: It takes a few weeks for the reproductive organs to get back to normal and ovulate. Sometimes, a woman will get pregnant again before seeing a first menstrual period after delivering a baby. That is why good contraception must be used all the time, every time, for at least a few months after delivery, until both husband and wife have decide to have another child. Keep babies at least a year apart. ...Read more

How come my wife doesn't get pregnant even though we do not use any birth control method after she gave birth to our baby. Our baby now is 2yrs old.

How come my wife doesn't get pregnant even though we do not use any birth control method after she gave birth to our baby. Our baby now is 2yrs old.

Many possible causes: First it's important to have sex 2-3 times weekly. If she's still not pregnant and it's been a year, it's time to get evaluation. There are many possible causes. If she is still breastfeeding, that by itself can reduce fertility. A complete history and some testing can often identify a cause and possible options for treatment. ...Read more

I m 28 years and my height is 5 feet 6 inches my weight is 130 kg I m hypothyroide how I can reduce my weight I gave birth to 2nd baby on 25 nov?

I just gave birth to my baby two weeks ago and I just noticed a hard spot that moves when I touch it on top of my hand. It hurts when I touch it what?

I just gave birth to my baby two weeks ago and I just noticed a hard spot that moves when I touch it on top of my hand. It hurts when I touch it what?

IV there?: It is hard to be sure without examining you, but if I had to guess, I would say it is a little bit of leftover damage following placement of an IV or an attempt at an IV. Sometimes, some blood or scar tissue can be left after an IV catheter is removed. Do you remember having one there? If that's what it is, heat applied twice a day can speed it up it going away, but it still may take months. ...Read more

Me & wife had sex may 20 to june 20, 2011 and her last mestruation period was july 12, 2012 & she gave birth to a baby on april 27, 2012. Is it my baby?

Me & wife had sex may 20 to june 20, 2011 and her last mestruation period was july 12, 2012 & she gave birth to a baby on april 27, 2012. Is it my baby?

Dates?: Your dates don't match up. You had sex in 2011, her period was in july 2012? She gave birth april 2012? - before her last period. Not following your date line at all. Do you mean july 2011? If that is the case, she had a period after the last time you had sex in may and june, then it isn't your baby as you did not have sex after her period. Need to rethink your dateline.... ...Read more

What would happen if I don't remove a hemorrhoid tag? My wife's got it since she gave birth to our baby. There is very little specs of blood in poop sometimes

What would happen if I don't remove a hemorrhoid tag? My wife's got it since she gave birth to our baby. There is very little specs of blood in poop sometimes

Hemorrhoid tags: Hemorrhoid tags are common especially in women after childbirth. They are usually of no great concern. Wash well after BMs and apply small amount of moisturize e.g. aloe or body moisturing cream. Avoid constipation as straining at the stool causes hemorrhoids to flare. Get adequate fluid and fiber in your diet of high vegetable and fruits. ...Read more

I just gave birth to a baby girl. It was through c-section. I need to reduce my tummy. Please let me know how can I reduce my tummy.?

Slowly, deliberately: Like any other abdominal surgery, cesarean section requires >3-6 weeks of recovery time before engaging in any exercise regimen. Diet and exercise are always recommended for weight loss (in that order). If you breastfeed, you will likely shed the extra weight more quickly, although diet and lactation do not mix well (may decrease your milk production). Swimming, treadmill and stationary bike work! ...Read more

Can I gave birth to a healthy baby if I don't eat fruits and vegetables?

Can I gave birth to a healthy baby if I don't eat fruits and vegetables?

Probably: You probably can if you take prenatal vitamins. Can you eat at least 1 serving a day? Do you really eat NO fruits or vegetables? I am not a person who likes those either but when I was pregnant I made myself eat healthier. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist (if available) to come up with the healthiest possible plan for your pregnancy. ...Read more
