How many days can I go without my allergy injections before I have to start over?

Variable: Depending where you are in your allergy injection schedule and how long it has been since your last shot will all factor into when you may need to restart your shots. If you are on maintenance therapy receiving your shots every 2-4 weeks and you missed one or two shot you will not have to start over.

How can I last longer during sex? I can only last 15 seconds before I have to ejaculate. Any exercises or tips to help over come this problem?

Talk to your doctor : A medication which delays orgasm would be ideal for you. I am aware of some antidepressants doing this. Examples include Prozac or Paxil (paroxetine). Premature ejaculation can be embarrassing for any man. Talk to your doctor abour your options. Also, you may want to talk to a therapist because this can often be psychological. ...Read more

Sudden allergy to opiates after tkr. Never had before.  Will i now not be able to take them again for pain?  On prednisone to try to get rid of itch!

Yes. Don't take agai: If it was established by your physician that you had a true allergic reaction to an opiate, you should not take an opiate again; the severity of the next reaction is not predictable, and could be anything from mild to anaphylaxis. There are other analgesics available and alternate ways to treat moderate to severe pain. ...Read more

I have been on the injection for quite some time how soon can start back taking the pill if i did not get my last shot?

I have been on the  injection for quite some time  how soon can start back taking the pill if i did not get my last shot?

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone)?: I am guessing by "the injection" you are referring to depoprovera, a progesterone-only birth control shot given every 3 months. F that is the case, you should start birth control pills at the same date your next shot should be -ie, 3 months after your last shot. If you wait any longer than 3 months you need to use condoms with the first pill pack to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

What can I do to help me get pregnant with only one tube? I have 6 month to try to before they take my last tube out!

Why: Are they going to take out your other tube? If you can get pregnant relax and use an ovulation kit and have sex for a few days around your day of ovulation. Do you have to allow that tube to be roved at your young age? Is it life threatening? If so you would not want to become pregnant. Something does not sound right. ...Read more

I had a d&c about 3weeks ago. When can I expect my periods and do I have to use condoms until then? And when can me and my hubby try again for a baby

It may take several months for ovulation to resume although it can begin as early as 4-6 weeks after pregnancy ends. You don't necessarily need to use condoms once your postoperative visit is completed. ...Read more
