How come ultrasounds done at 6-8 weeks are considered more accurate than 12 weeks?

How come ultrasounds done at 6-8 weeks are considered more accurate than 12 weeks?

Less variability: There is very little difference in size between different 6-8 week embryos. Therefore there is less uncertainty of their ages. The further along the pregnancy gets, the greater the manifestations of individual differences. So a fetus that will be 9 lbs at birth will look bigger than one destined to be 6 lbs. ...Read more

Which home remedies are considered the best to cure acne in a couple of days?

There aren't any: The over-the-counter product that works best is benzoyl peroxide. None of the home remedies you'll find online (lemon juice, sleeping with your face smeared with honey) will work, and i suspect some of them are cruel pranks on folks with an already-cruel disease. And no rx of any kind words very fast. Please get with a scientific physician. He/she can help. ...Read more

Had hydrocele surgery June 1. More comfortable than prior to surgery but testicle still a little more 2x than other one. Does not illuminate?

Had hydrocele  surgery June 1. More comfortable than prior to surgery but testicle still a little more 2x than other one. Does not illuminate?

Normal finding: Part of hydrocele always remains after hydrocele surgery. Fluid is drained & hydrocele sac is inverted & sewn together behind testis (Bottle procedure); some surgeons roll up hydrocele sac (Lord procedure). In both cases testicle will remain larger than other side & may slowly diminish in size with time. This explains why your post surgery testis does not trans-illuminate. Don't be concerned. ...Read more

You and your parents need to discuss risks & benefits with the surgeon, as well as alternatives, including waiting until your bones are fully mature before doing ANYTHING besides using a shoe lift. ...Read more
