How Does This Imbalance Happen
Fighting bacteria: Each hair follicle is connected to a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, which keep the skin surface oily and protects the skin. The importance of adequate face washing: when dead skin clogs up a pore, bacteria grows in the oily skin. The whiteness of an acne lesion is the pus formed by the dead white cells that fight the acne bacteria. ...Read more
How long does implantation bleeding last? How heavy is it supposed to be. What other symptoms do you have when this happens?
Internet Myths: A fetus, implanting on the wall of the uterus is the size of a speck of dust or smaller. It does not cause any symptoms and does not cause 'bleeding'. Rarely some women do see a speck of blood during this period of minutes or hours of implantation, but, in general early pregnancy is symptom free and without 'bleeding'. Pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
Usually unexplained: To die of natural causes usually implies that no artificial cause, accident, homicide, etc, or that no obvious disease process was the cause of death. Usually in this case, the deceased may have died at home or outside of the medical system and no other obvious cause is identified. Most likely death is due to a fatal abnormal heart rhythm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Stress: A Marker: No one really knows for sure whether or not stress really causes preterm birth. Stress can be defined in so many ways and people handle stress differently. Stress can be a function of your environment which may also cause ptb. For example, someone poor who lives in a high crime area experiences more "daily stress" but this population may have more infections/malnutrition which may also cause ptb. ...Read more
What exactly does implantation bleeding look like? How does it start? How long does it last? Is it different with twin pregnancy?
No such thing: Imagine with me a fetus, smaller than a speck of dust landing on the wall of the uterus. This microscopic even does not cause trauma or bleeding. Rarely a female can get one or two minor spots of blood in this event but in general implantation is symptom free. There is no such thing as "implantation bleeding'. ...Read more

Usually familial: Premature graying of hair is often a family trait, so there should be relatives with the same problem. As a familial trait, there isn't anything wrong inside the body. One's primary care doctor, the doctor doing one's general check-ups every year or two, can help check to make sure that the general health is normal... And confirm that there isn't any other problem going on. ...Read more
It a little: Hard to understand the question. To go from non implanted to implanted takes a matter of minutes. Are you referring to one day after ovulation, then no. One day after intercourse, well not from the intercourse that got u pregnant. Implantation occurs about 5 days after fertilization which is usually 12 hours after ovulation which means it has to travel the tube. Gd luck. ...Read more
It is complicated: Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant. As the alcohol enters your blood stream, the part of your brain that controls social interactions is suppressed and you may feel giddy and more talkative. As the process continues with further drinking, other more critical brain functions become supressed which eventually can lead to unconsciousness and suspension of respirations and death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Botulism: Is the disease caused by a bacterial toxin from clostridium botulinum. The bacteria produces spores, that when ingested, release the toxin or poison, botulinum. Stomach acid will destroy the spores in most people. Children under a year of age do not have enough stomach acid and the spores can poison them. The toxin causes paralysis of all muscles, including those necessary for breathing. ...Read more
CSF leak: Like an lp, a myelogram involves introducing a needle into the fluid-filled sac that contains the spinal cord. If the hole created by the needle does not close, spinal fluid can leak out and cause a headache that is worse with standing and better with lying down. If this describes your headache, try lots of fluids and caffeine. If this fails, a procedure called a blood patch can plug the hole. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Endorphin shock can someone explain to me the symptoms of this and what it truly means how does it happen?
Some relief with act: Very complex question and hard to answer. The body has endorphins or endogenous morphines released by the pituitary gland in the brain and act as neurotransmitters in our bodies. These can be release from the brain with exercise, excitement, pain, eating spicy food, and sexual activity. These can cause the endorphin shock. There is still some discussion on this and is complex but short reply ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doctors test for HCG: A biochemical pregnancy occurs when a woman becomes pregnant but has a spontaneous loss of her embryo/fetus before she even knows she had become pregnant. If HCG testing occurs before all of the HCG has been cleared out of the body, then HCG can be detected by a pregnancy test, giving a false positive pregnancy test. ...Read more
