Cryoglobulin: Cryoglobulins are antibodies that separate at low temperatures. In some conditions certain types of abnormal antibodies are produced that basically clump together when they drop a little bit below normal body temperature. It can be caused by infections, autoimmune diseases, inflammation of vessels, and kidney disease among others. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Your great aunt isn't a close enough relative that her medical history would clearly impact yours. Presence of endothelial cells is normal in a properly performed Pap test. The real problem is the heavy irregular periods. It's not clear to me how long you've been on OC's. 3 months of regular OC use usually normalizes the menstrual cycle. Follow up with your doctor if the problem persists. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Maybe a rest: It sounds like you have already checked things out pretty thoroughly. Occasional breakthrough bleeding/irregular bleeding is a side effect of continuous treatment. If you have stopped the pill briefly (3 or 4 days) and the problem has not resolved then it might be necessary to give it a break for a month or two. Alternatively, higher doses for a while might also work. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Cauc, 30 & 1st preg. Negative triple and NT test on 1st screen. 1/6123 risk for DS. 20 week screen showed fetal nasal bone at 4.6mm. High risk for DS?
Fairly unlikely: Fetal nasal bone length is not a commonly assessed marker at 20wks gestation, instead we care more at 11-13wks. As fetuses grow, epigenetics and the environment have more of an effect on growth so a small nasal bone at this gestational age is not necessarily predictive in the setting of other reassuring testing. A noninvasive blood test may help to provide more reassurance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

All doctors should: If a doctor senses that a patient desires to harm himself or others, he or she should ask the difficult questions. Unfortunately it is not always done. All doctors who screen for mental illness are trained to ask these questions. This would include family doctors, pediatricians, internists, emergency room doctors and psychiatrists. Others would also include counselors and psychologists, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
