Can u conceive without having a period? I'm currently taking birth control pills to help gain my period back since it has been missing for 6 months...

Unlikely: Obviously on the BC pills you cannot conceive. And if you go off the pill and stop getting periods that usually means you are not ovulating. There is no way to get pregnant without ovulating. If that's the case then you should see an infertility specialist who can figure out why you're not ovulating and give medication to help with that. ...Read more

Workup/M.D. visit: CF is one possible cause of frequent respiratory infections and a sweat chloride test is used to help diagnose CF in addition, there are many forms of immunodeficiency which can cause frequent infections. I also would suggest a chest xray to view the thorax. Reflux and possible aspiration into the lungs is another possibility. Records can be reviewed by prmg/pediatr resp @8582599689. ...Read more

Permanent?: Are you interested in more children? That's the #1 question. If the answer is yes, then pills might be best after iud. If not interested in more children then vasectomy (for hubby), essure (for you), or other forms of sterilization. Good luck! ...Read more

I have been taking birth control (microgestin fe 1.5/30) for a month, blood pressure went from 131/69 to 152/89 did birth control cause this?

I have been taking birth control (microgestin fe 1.5/30) for a month, blood pressure went from 131/69 to 152/89 did birth control cause this?

Likely, yes: BCP's can increase BP, especially in individuals who are overweight,, although less with the low estrogen pill. Other meds like ibuprofen and naprosyn (naproxen) are also culprits. I recommend serial BP's to confirm if this is consistent or a one time measurement, as pain, nervousness, etc. can all have an effect. ...Read more

Is it safe to have sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy? My previous child was born at 32 weeks. I'm currently taking progesterone shots weekly.

Is it safe to have sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy?  My previous child was born at 32 weeks.   I'm currently taking progesterone shots weekly.

Safe to have sex.: There should be no problem having sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy. It would probably be prudent not to try increased vigorous sex or unusual positions if you are not already used to it. Your previous delivery at 32 weeks has no effect on this pregnancy if all else is normal at this time. Good luck with the new family addition. ...Read more
