Is it ok to take a bubble bath 2 weeks after abortion?

Is it ok to take a bubble bath 2 weeks after abortion?

Yes: Two weeks should be long enough to wait, as long as you are no longer bleeding or having any other symptoms. But if the provider who did your procedure asked you to wait longer before putting anything into the vagina, wait until then. ...Read more

I take a warm bath daily. Does this effect the quality of my sperm? And if yes, how long does it take them to recover? I have sperm test in 5 days thx

Cleanliness is...: Cleanliness is next to godliness. The only reason to worry about sperm quality is if one wants to create babies atokeep our species going. Bathing is a highly desirable trait and will make a male human smell nice and clean to a female human... thus greatly increasing his chances of finding a potential female to mate with and perpetuate our species (ie: take a bath and don't worry about the sperm). ...Read more

Surgery/orthopedist: I am going to assume that knee dislocation in your case is knee cap dislocation. If your knee caps are dislocating multiple times and you have exhausted conservative measures such as therapy and bracing then you should strongly consider surgery to realign your knee caps. Discuss this with an orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee reconstructive surgery/sports to discuss your surgical options. ...Read more

Have your BP checked: Your blood pressure perhaps may be dropping when you're taking a shower and when you suddenly stand up.
Have someone check your blood pressure on a lying position, then 5 minutes later on an upright position.
If there's a drop in either systolic or diastolic pressure by 10-15 mm hg, you could have orthostatic hypotension.
Go see your dr for a thorough exam. ...Read more

At 10 days pp w/ C-section can you take a warm tub bath?

At 10 days pp w/ C-section can you take a warm tub bath?

What's a tub bath?: If one means soaking in a tub bath, 10 days sounds too early (i believe the ob-gyn doctors recommend waiting 4 weeks or so). Showers are ok, so that probably means getting into a tub and then getting out after a couple of minutes should be ok. But, why bother filling the tub if one is only allowed to dip in it? Check with the ob-gyn for the final word. ...Read more

Bartholin's Cyst: For a small bartholin's cyst that is not too painful, treatment consists of sitz baths with follow-up if the cyst enlarges or becomes painful.
Especially with recurrent cysts treatment with antibiotics and sitz baths to cool off the infection is sometimes done. If this clears up the infection, a surgical procedure called a marsupialization can be done later. ...Read more

By: By the date of this post about 4 days has gone by, so hopefully you have made contact with the doctor and your baby is better by now. For the future, and for others reading this post, if your baby seems very irritable and uncomfortable, and your instinct tells you that something is wrong you should contact your doctor. A phone call to the doctor's office after hours will put you through to a nurse or on call doctor. They will ask you a series of questions and advise you on the next best course of action (er visit or next day doctor's appointment).
Take good care. ...Read more

What foods or anything can I take or do to jumpstart my period? I've heard of vitamin C and warm baths?

What foods or anything can I take or do to jumpstart my period? I've heard of vitamin C and warm baths?

Wives' tales: To my knowledge, there's nothing save for hormones that can provoke a period. If vitamin c and warm baths provoked period, we would likely use that over hormones, like progesterone. If you want greater control over your period, best is to take a birth control pill. With that you can skip a period by taking the last week of placebo pills. Best of luck! ...Read more

I came out of a warm bath tub and my vision went all blurry, then it quickly returned to normal. What happened?

I came out of a warm bath tub and my vision went all blurry, then it quickly returned to normal. What happened?

Many things: Most probably is low blood pressure. Warm water dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. Being submerged in water can also lower blood pressure. Less likely, patients with optic nerve inflammation (optic neuritis and patients with multiple sclerosis -ms) will have dim vision when their body temperature rises. This is called uhthoff's syndrome. ...Read more

Are there any health benefits of a warm bath? Any side effects?

See you suffer: From anxiety. A warm soaker bath can help to relieve stress & can be part of good bed time routine to aid with insomnia (especially when lavender is added). One problem - you can come out of the tub with prune- like skin. Also, prolonged heat in a soaker is not healthy during pregnancy. Dehydration can occur & if you soak in a full tube with alcohol on board - you could fall asleep & drown. ...Read more

Keep vomiting after a nice warm bath?

Sorry it didn't help: A nice warm bath is a good idea to help deal with many unpleasant symptoms: ease pain, aid sleep, reduce stress, help a cold (steam)...but I don't think helping nausea & vomiting would typically be expected. There are many causes of vomiting: pregnancy, viruses, food poisoning, meds, motion sickness, etc. If able, drink clear liquids, avoid solid food, then BRAT: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast ...Read more

How to clean smegma on my child (7yr) penis. We tried warm bath, retracted the foreskin. But he has lt of pain.?

ADHERENT FORESKIN,: When penile foreskin gets attached to the glans penis, the natural greasy white substance 'smegma' gets trapped in the constricted part (corona glandis). Over time, smegma accumulation makes a bump, smelling, can get infected. This is seen more in obese boys, as their penis gets buried in the pubic fat. For pain give Ibuprofen 2-3 times daily, use vaseline on the area to prevent recurrent adhesion. ...Read more
