Congratulations : Congratulations on your pregnancy! would recommend that you ask your doctor to check your thyroid levels at your upcoming visit. Many women require a significant increase in their thyroid hormone replacement regimen in early pregnancy. It's really important to ensure that your thyroid levels are ideal throughout pregnancy both for your health and the health of the baby! to be on the safe side, it's probably a good idea to limit your caffeine to less than 200 mg per day (and would discuss with your OB at your visit as well). Also, be sure to take a prenatal vitamin with folic acid. Best wishes! ...Read more

I ovulated 4 days ago and I currently have cramps in my lower abdomen. My husband and I have been trying to have a baby so I am not sure what it is?

May need Dr.'s exam: A young and healthy woman can have an irregular period, cramping, or other menstrual symptoms once in a while. If the symptoms are brief, plus she returns to normal quickly, and then has normal periods after that, it's not too worrisome. A primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor should evaluate if a patient gets prolonged, recurrent, or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I recently had a c-section and I am now experiencing brownish/bloody smelly discharge and also not feeling well do u know what this can be?

I recently had a c-section and I am now  experiencing brownish/bloody smelly discharge and also not feeling well do u know what this can be?

Possible: It is not unusual to bleed for several weeks after a c-section and the odor issue can be subjective. "feeling bad" is not very specific but i would suggest seeing your doc; it could be an infection of the uterus or even the great if you are breast feeding. It's uncommon to have a uterine infection after c-section remote from the procedure, check your temp but discharge and some bleeding not unus. ...Read more

Please I have been having difficulty in stooling recently. It started since i started taking some anti-biotics. What can I do please? Thanks

Post-antibx diarrhea: Many antibiotics are non-specific as to what bacteria they kill. When your normal gut flora is depleted by antibiotics you may be at risk for opportunistic pathogens. A very common one is clostridium difficile (c.Diff). Your doctor, in considering this possibility, will order a specific stool check. If c.Diff is found treatments include: different antibiotics, toxin binders, florastor probiotics. ...Read more

Late HCG negative: HCG would just be turning positive around this time ,so may wish to wait a few day and retest.

Get in touch immediately with your OB GYN MD and get antibiotics if needed and a status check on any pregnancy. ...Read more
