Eating more?: Weight is dependent not only on how active you are, but also what you eat. If you are exercising but also eating more, you will gain weight. Try exercising 30 min a day -- brisk walking, biking, or swimming. Also try to eat 3 sensible meals a day, with more fruits, veg; and less carbs and fat. Drink plenty of water. If you keep this up for a few weeks, you should see results. Good luck! ...Read more

If I missed one day on BC and doubled up the next day. Should I use back up protection? Or am I okay?

If I missed one day on BC and doubled up the next day. Should I use back up protection? Or am I okay?

Should be fine.: as long as you are otherwise consistently taking your birth control and haven't missed other days, missing one day and doubling up the next should be adequate for birth control. If you find that you are missing lots of days, try longer-acting methods like rings, shots, implants, IUDs. ...Read more

My period wont go at way? I started in the 4 of abril a week later I stop for two days and Then Started again till today.

Many possibilities.: Frequent menses can be caused by a structural problem in the uterus (polyp or fibroid for example). It can also be caused by a hormonal imbalance, pregnancy or perimenopause. The work up can be different depending on your age. If you are of child bearing age start with a pregnancy test. Treatment ranges from medication to surgery depending on the severity of the bleeding and the cause. ...Read more

How long does hCG at 400 take to drop down to 0 .its been 5days and pregnancy test still coming positive had a miscarriage a month a at six weeks?

How long does hCG at 400 take to drop down to 0 .its been 5days and pregnancy test still coming positive had a miscarriage a month a at six weeks?

Roughly: hCG drops at roughly the same rate it rises when a pregnancy fails, so an hCG of 400 can easily take 30 days to drop down to 10 or less. If you are concerned you should ask your doctor (or a doctor) to check a quant hCG again. ...Read more

I am at least 12 days late, but I have irregular periods. My mom says wait until the end of the month, should I take a pregnancy test or should I wait?

I am at least 12 days late, but I have irregular periods. My mom says wait until the end of the month, should I take a pregnancy test or should I wait?

I'm with Mom: If periods are randomly irregular, a woman isn't "late" because she doesn't know when her period is due. Without a period due date, she can't say she is late. However, if her irregularity stays within a narrow range, such as getting periods 4-7 weeks apart, she could say she is "late" if it has been more than 8 weeks since her last period. If worried, test now. Otherwise, Mom's advice sounds fine. ...Read more

If before exercise I get period every 28 day and after starting exercise I get it every 29 day if I stop exercising for month will I get it 28 day?

No difference: A one day difference in the day of the menstrual cycle is not clinically meaningful. It is just the slight variation from one cycle to the next. This is not a cause for concern. Continue exercising and being healthy and know that it is normal to have some variation from month to month ...Read more

Usually take bcp at 10:30 p.m., last week one day I took it at 12:30 p.m. had sex a couple times later that week. Could this increase chance of preg?

Usually take bcp at 10:30 p.m., last week one day I took it at 12:30 p.m. had sex a couple times later that week. Could this increase chance of preg?

Maybe increased risk: Taking a birth control pill 10 hours earlier than usual, or 14 hours later than usual, can alter one's hormone levels a bit... and might increase one's chance of getting pregnant if ovulation occurs. In real life, if that happens on just one day of the pill pack, there may not be any noticeable difference. (If the pill was actually taken at 12:30 a.m., not p.m., there should not be a problem.) ...Read more

Wait 4 period: Your question has been answered. There is no diagnosis here. This could be an irregular period. It could be a sign of infection. It could be the uterus cleaning out excess older blood. It is not pregnancy and it is not not pregnancy. ...Read more

Nausea: Continual nausea for three years is a nonspecific symptom and warrants an evaluation by a gastroenterologist who will take a thorough history, perform a physical examination and order appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis and get you treated.
