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

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

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 The sites I have viewed are outdated.

WWW. PPARX. ORG: I am not sure, but I found this statement from norvir's website (http://www. Norvir. Com/)

"if you cannot afford your medication, contact: www. Pparx. Org or call the toll-free phone number (1-888-4ppa-now) (1-888-477-2669) for assistance."

if that doesn't help I would suggest contacting a local social worker or financial assistance counselor who may have ways of getting updated information. ...Read more

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

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. If the patient is paying cash then you can go directly to the testing agency and request the test without a doctor's orders. Insurance will not pay. ...Read more

(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. I would assume that there may have been either incomplete visualization or the radiologist wanted to make sure it is not something else. Talk to the ordering doc and ask him that question. He may contact the radiologist and ask him directly. ...Read more

Iam finding it very difficult to get over my 15 years realationship with my ex who I believe a narcissist. He seems so happy with his new girlfriend?

Iam finding it very difficult to get over my 15 years realationship with my ex who I believe a narcissist. He seems so happy with his new girlfriend?

Seek help: He might be happy with her, but if he's narcissistic than likely she might not be as happy. All that said, if it wasn't working for you when you were with him, why are you still thinking about him? Whether he is or is not happy, you need to move on and get a life for yourself. It sounds like you are stuck and need help moving on. I would suggest therapy to help. ...Read more

My doctor of 21 years has recently retired, how do I go about finding a new one?

New doctor: Your former doc may recommend docs for his pts to go to.

Why do I keep getting headaches everyday? My doctor isn't helping much with finding out what's wrong with a lot of my problems. Time for new doc?

Try holistic doc: There are many possible causes of frequent headaches, including food sensitivities, structural imbalances, stress, medication rebound etc. If your doc can't help try another- I advise seeing a holistic doc who will try to discover and treat the underlying cause of problems rather than just treat symptoms. Chiropractic, acupuncture and homeopathy may help too. See http://www. Abihm. Org/search-doctors. ...Read more

After treatment of head lice with Hedrin I am still finding between 10 and 20 seemingly new hatched lice 24 hours after. They appear dead. Normal?

Yes: According to the hedrin website- one of the active ingredients paralyzes the lice and so they likely look dead-
The maker also recommends that the procedure be repeated in 7 days for eggs that hatched since the first application and also say that if it looks like there is a re-infection that you can use the treatment again
Try to find the source of the infection and good luck! ...Read more

Sometimes: Maternal steroids is sometimes used during premature labor to attempt to accelerate babies lung maturity. It is gestation dependent, meaning they find it helps at a certain gestation (weeks pregnant) and not so much for others. Any drug that is strong enough to do good will have potential side effects that could harm. This question should be directed to those who made the decision. ...Read more

Need guidance in finding a new doctor to help with private disability claim forms. I am at a loss. I have cervical disk herniations, arthritis & disk compressions in my lower back. Have had this for 5 yrs and have been on disability (private insurer) for

Primary care: Start with you primary care doctor who is technically responsible for overall over site of your care. Multiple and long forms are frustrating for doctors, perhaps you could offer up front that you would be willing to lay a reasonable fee for each form. He/she might be more receptive as you are showing respect for the value of their time. ...Read more

I ran out of my prescription adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) I start a new job tomorrow. I am having trouble finding a doctor near me that accepts my ins. Can anyone help?

I ran out of my prescription adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) I start a new job tomorrow. I am having trouble finding a doctor near me that accepts my ins. Can anyone help?

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
