Worrisome: A 27 year old female comments that her doctor used transvaginal ultrasound to "show endometriosis". I am not aware that ultrasound can be used to make this diagnosis. Perhaps a gynecologist can confirm or refute this diagnostic phenomenon. In my opinion, the diagnosis of endometriosis should only be made if tissue pathology confirms. ...Read more

What happens when your pregnant and you take the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and danazol but you had sex in last day?

A little confused: I am not sure I have the correct info. Neither of those meds would be knowingly used during pregnancy and would not be used together. Usually Danazol is used for endometriosis although it does have a few other uses and Depo-Provera can be used for same reason. If you got pregnant while on Danazol you need to speak with OB about potential problems. Getting pregnant on Depo-Provera not so much a concern. ...Read more

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.
