I have been getting my period twice a month now for about two months, and in between also every two weeks i seem to be ovulating aswell?

Not Normal: That is definitely not normal. If you are indeed ovulating, which is not that likely, then there is something wrong causing all the bleeding. You may have a polyp or a fibroid. So for sure you should be evaluated to figure out what is going on. Very difficult to get pregnant with bleeding like that. ...Read more

I have been nauseous all day every day for over three years now. It comes in surges at least twice a day and stops me working. Whats a possibility?

Nausea: Continual nausea for three years is a nonspecific symptom and warrants an evaluation by a gastroenterologist who will take a thorough history, perform a physical examination and order appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis and get you treated. In the meantime avoid spicey,fried and greasy foods, excessive caffeine,alcohol and don't smoke. ...Read more

I have been given propranolol for my aniexty three times a day I was wondering about how many hours I should leave in between them thanks ?

I have been given propranolol for my aniexty three times a day I was wondering about how many hours I should leave in between them thanks ?

Anxiety Treatment: Propranolol is primarily a treatment for the symptoms of anxiety--panicky feeling, racing heart, increased blood pressure, sweaty palms--rather than a treatment FOR anxiety. I would take it every 6 hours while awake, but watch for low blood pressure and slow heart rate. Also consider seeing a psychologist for counseling and/or requesting an antidepressant with anxiolytic features such as Paxil (paroxetine). ...Read more

Good nutrition but..: Eggs are an excellent source of nutrition containing protein & many vitamins & minerals that are good building blocks for your baby. While eggs do contain cholesterol, eating eggs does not necessarily raise your cholesterol levels.However, i strongly recommend that you eat organic eggs, which are widely available & affordable-otherwise they are from chickens feed gmo corn & soy which i would avoid! ...Read more

Amazing to me: B"sd Norethindrone is a form of progesterone, which "prepares" the uterus lining after exposure to estrogen. on stopping the pills the lining is "unsupported" and menstruation ensues. Ongoing monthly rx is not commonly used in my experience - but do not see any adverse effect. Endocrinologist approach is to try and reverse the hormonal abnormalities in PCOS and usually normal menses follow. ...Read more

How do I safely kick-start my period? Every month I have severe cramps for a day or two before, and a day or two after.

How do I safely kick-start my period? Every month I have severe cramps for a day or two before, and a day or two after.

Cramping and Flow: If the flow is on-time and predictable, cramping before and after can be due to prostaglandins made by the lining that cause uterine cramping. The first step is to take highest recommended doses of Naproxen or Ibuprofen 24 hours before you start to cramp and during the cramping. If this does not reduce the pain after a few cycles, birth control pills may be an option and see your GYN for others ...Read more

Yes: The usual dose of Amoxicillin is 250-500 milligrams three times a day. There are very few infections that require 7 weeks of treatment. Osteomyelitis would be the main one. You can drink alcohol while taking Amoxicillin but do it in moderation. ...Read more

You are no longer doing opiates to get high, you are now chasing after them to keep from getting sick or experiencing withdrawal. There is help and you deserve recovery.

Depo: Lack of menses with DEPO use is common. The more concerning issue is the effect of prolonged Depo use and bone density. Depo can cause significant reversible decrease in bone density. You should discuss this with your physician and consider an alternate method of birth control. ...Read more

ODD: AT YOUR AGE (50) IT WOULD BE STRANGE IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE BINGE EATING. IN ANY CASE, IT WOULD BE REASONABLE TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST FOR A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION OF THIS ISSUE. I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED SOMEONE MUCH YOUNGER TO HAVE THIS DIFFICULTY. ARE YOU SURE YOU SHOULD CALL IT 'BINGE EATING'? ...Read more

I have been having coughing fits for about two weeks. Used to be once a day but now about once every two days. Typically happen in the evening. Why?

Chronic cough: It could be a simple viral infection that has a residual ongoing cough or its possible that its now developing into a bacterial infection. It could also be allergy. You need to visit your doctor who can examine your chest to see if you need antibiotics at this stage.
