I've had a cold/ congestion for over 3 weeks now. Not as severe as it was in the beginning but it just won't go away. Should I be concerned?

I've had a cold/ congestion for over 3 weeks now. Not as severe as it was in the beginning but it just won't go away. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: A viral upper respiratory infection (common cold) can last for several weeks. As long as symptoms are not worsening at this point, then probably don't need to worry. Sometimes a cold can be complicated by a bacterial infection, but usually symptoms worsen when that happens. If there is severe pain, fever over 101, bloody nasal drainage, or shortness of breath, then seek care. Good luck. ...Read more

1st. NormalOnlyMeans: capable of contraction & no human body muscles (except heart muscle, ~110 times/min without brain inputs) contract without a direct nerve fiber stimulus from the brain (most as signals relayed via the spinal cord). I.e. Body is an extension of the mind & brain. 2nd Normal only means common, no necessary relation with health/disease, good/bad. Avoid conflating issues. 3rd Your specific question? ...Read more

Is it normal at 37 weeks for the vagina to be extremely tight, as the pregnancy progresses, it seems tighter, almost like i have not had sex.Should i ?

Vaginal tightness: As the pregnancy progresses to 37 weeks, the fetus is putting gravitational and situational pressure on the rectum, vagina, and bladder due to the baby's proximity.

It has been 2 weeks and I feel a little bloated... Is it normal to have cramps that start on the right side even after your period? Or could it be a uti?

Right sided pain: You are likely ovulating, which occurs about two weeks into your monthly cycle. The follicle that releases the egg sometimes spills some fluid or blood at the same time, which can cause more pain during a particular cycle. If the pain worsens or doesn't fade after several days, you may want to be evaluated. ...Read more
