I was on d pill for 2 weeks but developed bad loose motions bcoz of it n stopped mid month. Is this harmful for my cycles?

Clarify:: If I understand correctly, you were on birth control pills, & they caused loose bowel movements-so you stopped them mid pack. It isn't 'harmful' but stopping them mid pack should cause the withdrawal bleed/period to start w/in a week of stopping them, and you may experience some irregular bleeding until your nl cycling resumes. Loose stools is not a common rxn to ocps. ...Read more

Teething symptoms: Some children do get a low grade fever, diarrhea and drooling. You can treat them simultaneously. Ibuprofen is more effective for teething than tylenol (acetaminophen). You can also let your baby chew on a cold teething ring. Keep the fluids coming. If you prefer tylenol (acetaminophen), it is important you do not give your baby more than four doses of Acetaminophen per 24 hours. Acetaminophen really challenges the liver. ...Read more
