Pregnancy: A positive urine pregnancy test and a value of 67.1 on blood testing signifies pregnancy. However, having taken HCG injecting before the test does confuse the picture. If HCG dose used was high, then it may be an HCG effect. Talk to your doctor to get their opinion on the bhcg value.

Am 7wks pregnant w/ivf twins. Ivf doc put me on 2ml gestone daily. New doc adds Primolut depot (?) weekly due to brown blood. Is this safe?

Am 7wks pregnant w/ivf twins. Ivf doc put me on 2ml gestone daily. New doc adds Primolut depot (?) weekly due to brown blood. Is this safe?

Unusual choice: Primolut is a synthetic progestin, norethisterone: it would be an odd choice of treatment, at least in the us. Although it's actions are very similar to native progesterone, most advise avoiding synthetic progestins when pregnant. Discuss your concern again with your doctor, for sure.

I m 5wk pregnant IVF &had slight spotting yesterday. Taking gestone & crinone (progesterone gel) as progestrone is 14.3 only. Is it normal to have spotting?

I m 5wk pregnant IVF &had slight spotting yesterday. Taking gestone & crinone (progesterone gel) as progestrone is 14.3 only. Is it normal to have spotting?

Maybe: Generally Progesterone levels should be very high in early pregnancy and over 100 is not uncommon. With twins it should be higher. The fact that it is 9.1 is probably not a good sign and may suggest that you are miscarrying. The best way to tell what is happening is to get an ultrasound. Good luck.

What can I do to ease my fear of injection?

What can I do to ease my fear of injection?

Can be treated: You've shown courage in writing to healthtap and that's a big plus. Get with your physician and see about a referral for a short course of cognitive-behavioral or desensitization therapy. It's like minor surgery on your thought patterns and your triumph is likely to carry over in other areas of your life. In the meantime, think why am I having the injection -- the good things it makes possible.

What is the lethal injection made of?

Weird protocol: First, a barbiturate to put the person to sleep. Then succinylcholine to make the person not move. Then potassium chloride to stop the heart. The latter would be very painful if the person isn't asleep. It's easily bungled especailly with well-intentioned people making the barb (pentothal) hard to get.

Is glutathione injection safe?

Is glutathione injection safe?

Not great evidence: The question is, what are you getting the injection for? There are parkinson disease "doctors" who promote this scam as a treatment for parkinson disease when a recent trial did not show benefit. It is very expensive and of dubious benefit. There are a lot of sites that promote glutathione injections for other reasons...You'll notice that none of the sites are medical, and all are expensive.
