Intrauterine insemination (iui) is a good option. See a fertility specialist (rei) if trying to conceive without success. ...Read more
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

Can my 6 month old baby use cold and cough syrup if so what do u recommend for him concerned mother
I wouldn't: The nasal & airway structure of young infants is quite different from older kids or adults. Studies have shown no benefit of cough/cold preparations to kids under 6. They also reflect a large number of ER visits and poison control calls from these meds. If you need something to do, keep track of fluid intake.That is more important overall & more likely to help baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
