What does this mean for us my girlfriend just found out that she is pregnant, and right after that found out that she has hpv. What should we do.. Is my baby at risk for anything.. What about her?

HPV : Hpv (human papilloma virus) is very common. 1/3 people carry the virus. There are hundreds of different types, the most worrisome being types 16, and 18 which cause cervical cancer. Hpv in pregnancy rarely leads to any complications or issues for the fetus, unless the mother has active warts on her vulva or cervix. In this case her ob/gyn may opt to do a c-section to avoid exposure. Otherwise the pregnancy will be followed as routine, unless there are other separate issues. Keep in mind each doctor is different. Your girlfriend should find out how this doctor managaes hpv in pregnancy. Congrats. All the best. ...Read more

Hormones to facilitate the process can be done safely with tamoxifen. This should be done before chemotherapy is started. Adoption is a great option.

When do babies start talking alot? My daughter is 18 mo and says mama dada and baby, and thats really it. Should I be concerned?

It depends.: Not all babies develop at the same pace or reach milestones at the same time. If you ask a group of moms when their children started talking you will get a different answer from each. Some babies take longer to learn how to coordinate their tongue and mouth to form sounds. Try not to worry; your daughter should be talking up a storm soon - and then you'll wish she would shut up! ...Read more
