Wrong question: For the sake of your baby, please call child protective services to have him placed in a safe environment while you seek care you desperately need for addiction. You are clearly out of touch with reality and are a danger to yourself and to your infant. Make the call before tragedy occurs. Your child deserves a mother who can care for him and keep him safe.

Hello, my name is Alonzo, I am concerned that my wife might have an STI. She's assured me while I've been away that she has not been unfaithful. Howev?
More info needed: If neither of you have had other sex partners recently, obviously it is unlikely your wife has any STI. However, some STIs can be carried a long time, and can show up several months or even a few years into a relationship, with neither partner being unfaithful. If you remain in doubt, both of you should be tested for common STDs (mainly gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV and syphilis). ...Read more

Guns and Ringing ear:
I would advise that if there is no other explanation that the scenario you describe is very valid as an explanation to the ears sensation. Let's give this some time and then only if it worsens or persists should someone take a peek inside the ears.
Just because I am a physician I would be remiss if I did not point out that good ear protection is warranted in these settings... ...Read more
Could I be pregnant? I recently had the implonon removed due to problems. The nurse told me I could get pregnant immediately. I've heard of women saying the felt pregnant within day of having sex, and I've also heard some women say that's impossible. Howev
It is possible to get pregnant in the first month after having Implanon removed. I would consider taking an over the counter pregnancy test or a blood test. It is very hard to know otherwise based on symptoms alone, especially when using long term contraceptive devices or medications that are Progesterone based. Losing one's breath more easily than normal can be a sign of pregnancy as well. You must remember to take the test at least 2 weeks after the time that you had intercourse and think you may have conceived. Obviously, if you have intercourse more frequently you may consider taking an over the counter test now, and then repeating it in 2 weeks as well.
