Malaria Life Cycle
No such thing: Life cycles in biology refer to organisms that have different appearances and abilities in different generations. Leprosy bacteria grow best at cooler temperatures inside cells, and you will probably find them interesting; I have the idea that they are a modified tubercle bacillus that has lost much of its genome. But in spite of anything else you may read, all generations are the same, no cycle. ...Read more

C-Section/Tubal Ligation 8/14. Normal cycle started 10/13/14. Next cycle 11/15/14. Started cycle again today 11/30. Part-time breast feeding. Dying?
Why dying?: Are you feeling really bad from this early period? You could be anemic if you are postpartum and have too frequent periods, which could make you feel very weak. Irregular periods are common following tubal ligation. Being post-partum and breast feeding can also result in irregular periods. If you feel very weak and drained, you should get the hemoglobin level in your blood checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can be fatal.: Plasmodium falciparum is the most lethal form of Malaria. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) an African child dies from Malaria every minute. Risks of death are higher in people w AIDS, young children, pregnant women & their fetuses & in people from non-endemic areas. See: http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs094/en/ ...Read more
Can woman who donates a kidney live normal life? What care must she take?risk in pregnancy? Is there lowered life expectancy? risk of kidney failure?
Depends: Most of us need one well-functioning kidney to live normally. However, one needs to think seriously before deciding to become a living donor. After all, it is a major surgery (mortality rate 2-3 in 10,000) and it requires general anesthesia. Recent studies have shown that former donors do have slightly higher chance of pregnancy-related complications (e.g. pre-eclampsia). ...Read more
Maybe: A doctor can check to see if there is any worrisome medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their periods or a missed period on occasion (especially after getting a symptomatic illness like dengue). Some women are back to normal very soon, but others do have bothersome menstrual symptoms that persist or recur and need to see their doctors. ...Read more
CSection & Tubal Ligation on 8/8. Normal cycle on 10/15. Now having cycles every 2 weeks. Is this normal? Cycles - 11/15, 11/30, 12/17.
Yes: Pregnancy and procedures like tubal ligation can sometimes "reset" the menstrual cycle/log at times. So, being so recently postpartum, my hunch is that there is probably not any real pathology (e.g. growth, tumors, etc...) going on here. Nevertheless, continue to monitor. If the symptoms persist for the next 3-4 cycles, get with your OB/GYN for further evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had unprotected sex 22/01/15 and 26/01/15 ovulated 24/01/15 or 25/01/15 chance of pregnancy 39 day cycle ?
2-5 days: Sperm can manage to live a long time, even in harsh conditions such as a menstrual cycle. Tampons probably have no effect. The good news is that a woman is unlikely to ovulate during her menstrual cycle, so even if the sperm live for a few days, it's unlikely there's anything for them to fertilize. If she's late for her period next month, you should check a pregnancy test. Next time use a condom! ...Read more
