Plan B: Plan b is not 100% effective and certainly the withdrawal method is not effective. It could be completely unrelated to your period or pregnancy, but don't make that assumption. Consider getting a blood pregnancy test in about 10 days just to be safe. I also recommend using a condom over withdrawal. ...Read more

Hard to guess: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

I got sedated (not general anesthesia) felt sickeningly dizzy, and woke up four hours later and didn't remember anything. Is that normal? I thought I would be awake but sedated?

Dizzy: It would help to know what surgical procedure you had done. But in general, what you are describing is within the normal range for deep sedation. Two of the most common drugs (midazolam and propofol) have amnestic qualities. If they had you breathing some notrous oxide, that can disturb the inner ear and give profound dizziness. ...Read more

I've asked earlier bout my high blood pressure I took my BP meds it's been four hours since I took them and still feel weak headache and dizzy.

I've asked earlier bout my high blood pressure I took my BP meds it's been four hours since I took them and still feel weak headache and dizzy.

Treat the headache: Judy, why don't you try some NSAID for your headache? Like ibuprofen or naproxen. Acetaminophen works for some people. Lying down, resting in a dark room is also helpful. A cool compress on the forehead. I would advise you not to "chase your BP". If you take excess BP med, your BP will get too low when you're feeling better and that's actually more harmful than a bout of higher BP during stress. ...Read more
