I had unprotected sex over a week ago and had bleeding after that lasted 5 days. Now one of my nipples has begun to change color. Could I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

My nipples are inverted. Is this from genetics and can it be changed?

Depends: New or old? One side or both? Any new changes in the breast, nipples included, should be evaluated by a physician and you need to make sure you stay current with your screenings. If it's not related to anything serious but bothers you enough, you may need surgery to fix it. Otherwise do like the beatles and "let it be". Make sure your doc sees it either way, though. ...Read more

Over feeding? : 2 -3oz is more than enough formula for a 2mo old baby, but 4-5oz is way too much for a baby this young. I suggest you discuss feeding amounts with your baby's doctor - much of this has to do with the baby's size, but clearly, 4-5 oz is not healthy, and should not be given at that volume until the baby is at least 3 or 4 months old. See your Pediatrician for more advice ...Read more

How often should you change up your bottles and nipples?

How often should you change up your bottles and nipples?

As your baby grows: Newborns generally are most comfortable with a slow flow nipple, but as they get older a faster flow nipple may be better. You can keep using the same bottles, as long as there are no cracks in them. Wash with hot soapy water after each use and sterilize at least once a week if using regularly. ...Read more
