Electrolysis: I'll be very frank with you. . . **i** don't feel it is safe for anyone. Certainly not it pregnancy, where two people are involved and one cannot yet make the decision, but even non-gravid women should know that it's almost a worthless pursuit -- it really doesn't work very well, and the risks of scarring, infections, and so forth are really significant. I don't recommend it! ...Read more

I recently heard about electrolysis for permanent hair removal. Why is laser hair removal so much more popular then electrolysis? Is it safe?
Laser is better: Electrolysis hair removal was the standard before lasers revolutionized the field of permanent hair removal. Now, nothing is permanent and 100% in medicine, but there's permanent hair reduction. While electrolysis treats each hair bulb at a time, laser can treat a lot of hairs instantly at the same time.A bikini area can be lasered in 10 min. Lasers do not work for white, red and light blond hair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I know it's not safe to take Excedrin while pregnant but everyone tells me diff reasons why .. What is the exact reason(s) why it's bad for baby!?
Excedrin: Excedrin Migraine, which is the same as regular Excedrin, contains three ingredients. One is Tylenol (acetaminophen), which is safe to take during pregnancy. The second is aspirin, which is not recommended during pregnancy. The third is caffeine, and Excedrin has about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee can have at its weakest. Aspirin interferes with your blood's clotting action. As a result, taking aspirin during pregnancy — especially after 32 weeks — can contribute to maternal and fetal bleeding. Aspirin and ibuprofen can also cause the premature closure of a vessel in a baby's heart, which can lead to high blood pressure in the baby's lungs (pulmonary hypertension), and prolong labor. ...Read more
