Forced to have abortion 2 months ago & im finding it hard but me & my new boyfriend are trying but its not happing why? Is there a way to speed it up
I am concerned....: I am concerned about your comment on being forced to have an abortion, because I don't know the details. Many women have mixed feelings about having an abortion: grief, sadness, relief, all at once. Many women who elect to have an abortion make excellent mothers later - because they have made a careful decision about what is best for all concerned. That doesn't make it easy. Talk to your doctor! ...Read more
Do you have a recommendation for a specific DO or Naturopath in the Portland Oregon area, or a good way to go about finding one other than a basic google search? Looking for a new practitioner
Possibly!: Hi! For a DO who does manipulation you could look under the AAO website (American Academy of Osteopathy). That is where DOs who do more OMT, focus on osteopathy may be. The AOA (American Osteopathic Assn) may also have one but is for ALL DOs regardless of specialty. Also the AOIM (Academy of Integrated Medicine) is a mix of Naturopaths, DOs, chirps, functional medicine docs etc; hope that helps! ...Read more
I need to renew my norvir (ritonavir) co-pay card, yet am having difficulty finding a new one online. Any suggestions? The sites I have viewed are outdated.

What's the easiest way to get your dr. To order test that you feel need to be ordered? Finding a second dr seems impossible due to not accepting new
Culture of Medicine: A doctor is the physician in the relationship. The patient, at least in my office, has a right to ask any question, ask for any test they want, but if the test is not appropriate or is not available then the patient and I get to discuss this.

(question got cut off) new 1.1cm intramural fibroid, told repeat u/s in 4 months. Why is this important since fibroids r so common & a benign finding?
Fibroids: I am not sure why you were suggested to have ultrasound repeated.

He may contact the radiologist and ask him directly. ...Read more

It sounds like you are stuck and need help moving on. I would suggest therapy to help. ...Read more

Advice only: Docs on a HealthTap Prime shift (our paid service) cannot write for controlled meds like Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Anyone on such meds who must change prescribers is advised to obtain records to take to new prescriber, & be seen before prescription is due. If unable to find a doc accepting the insurance, seeing a primary care doc self-pay gets you continuity of care, while continuing the search. All the best. ...Read more
