About 3 days i took birth control late one day 6 hrs late second day 15 minutes late and third day3 hrs late is birth control still effective?
Probably yes: The effectiveness of pills depends on consistent and correct use--which is usually defined as btwn 1-2 hrs early and 1-2 hrs late. Even with a missed d, the pill is likely effective, but if the pill was at the beginning of a pack or the last hormonal pill before the sugar pills/placebos, it might make more difference. To be sure, use back-up (condoms) for 7 d. Try setting the alarm on your cell. ...Read more

Pregnant late second trimester. Drank milk that expires tomorow. Could this harm the baby? It was just 1 day before the use by date?
Should be fine: Pasteurized milk in the U.S. has a date stamped on it. If the milk had been opened a while, had been left out of the refrigerator too long, is close to the stamped expiration date (or at that date or beyond), then a person should watch for sour-tasting milk... which would mean it should be thrown away. If it tastes fine, has not expired, and seems safe using common sense, then it is not harmful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Late second period after miscarriage could i be pregnant? I had a mc on 12/19 had my first period 1/19 that was light and 10 days & now i'm late
Just take a test: Why wonder? You can just take a test and in minutes you will know. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications.

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

My 7 months old is a week late on her second shot for flu, can I skip it or should I take her in anyway?
I would: The recommendation for the interval between the two doses is greater than or equal to 4 weeks apart. This is done in case the first dose did not result in sufficient immunity. Very likely being only a week late will not be a factor. I would take her in anyway. Best wishes:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could taking a pill 6 hours late in the second week of active pills be the reason my period started three days before the sugar pills?
Perhaps...: but unlikely. the spotting could be your period. the easiest way to know is to purchase a very inexpensive home pregnancy test. take one today. if negative, repeat in 10 days and avoid alcohol in the meantime. if you had a period four weeks ago and do happen to be pregnant now, you may be early enough that it would not show up as positive right away. ...Read more
