Oral birth control: Low dose birth control pills are usually about the same price, and both of those are equally effective, if one takes them at the same time every day. It is also important to start a new package on day 5 of the placebo pills instead of day 7. This will prevent ovulation (pregnancy) more certainly. ...Read more

At what age do late talkers generally catch up thier peers. My son is 2 y 4 m. Has vocab of 50 words 3-4 two words comb. Will goin to nursery help?
Development Testing: Before your son can be labeled "late talker", a medical or developmental disorder must first be ruled out. Child's past medical/family/development history is not given but is important to know. Be aware that hearing loss is a major cause of language delay in this age group and must be tested for. See doctor for a full medical and developmental assessment to determine true cause of speech delay. ...Read more
Am I at an disadvantage compared to my peers if I didn't go to preschool? I think if I went I would have been socialized more early and learned stuff
Not really: Most studies show preschool benefits disappear within the first few years of formal schooling. In many ways it is one of the most over hyped practices we have seen in decades. It does help those who do not have a stimulating home environment catch up with those who do, but that does not put them ahead of anyone later on. ...Read more
People need people..: Healthy interactions with others leads to enhanced understanding of life, and of yourself. It also adds joy and fulfillment. We are a social species -- and that includes people with "mental illness". Get out there and get involved in something and with someone. ...Read more

Thinner than peers: Your body metabolism and body habitus are influenced by genetic factors. If it causes you concern, you can talk to a nutritionist for some dietary advice and see your internist for some basic bloodwork and a physical examination. ...Read more
Not necessarily, but: Some research does link psychological distress in the form of anxiety and depression to earlier death: http://tinyurl. Com/ceob7uf I agree with my colleagues about the need to work on your anxiety with a psychologist or psychiatrist who does psychotherapy. I agree with suggestions about healthy diet, exercise, and sleep too. That way, you can live your life -- rather than anxiety living you. ...Read more
Work with the school: Public schools are better staffed to handle special needs kids & laws require mainstreaming when possible, regular assessments& individualized education plans do not apply to most private facilities. You need to get involved in the process. Realize you don't have to sign off on any program plan but should accept their best efforts. Educators are aware of their own limitations & try to do their best. ...Read more
Is there a decent site for me to find peer reviewed medical research articles? I need to find decent, free ones for A&P.

My child is smaller than most his peers. They all seem to be growing but him. Does this mean he will be short? I am small but dad is over 6ft.
Hard to say: Growth varies quite a bit in normal kids of a similar age. Expected final height of males is the average of both parents +2-3 in. They also can grow/hit growth spurts at different times based on many factors. You have not provided height or age, so further comment on his potential is difficult. If you are concerned talk with his doc. A single x-ray of his wrist/hand can reveal growth potential. ...Read more
Many: Peer pressure can try to influence behaviors (pressure to have another drink, be more sexually active, vote for a certain person) or may try to influence thinking and values. It can be direct with peers verbally making statements that encourage thoughts/behaviors & it can be indirect with peers behaving in a way and rejecting when others do not fall into line. Seek wise counsel to find your way. ...Read more
You are responsible: For you no matter what others say and do.. Think about what is right and wrong and decide for yourself what is the right thing to do. Develop inner strength and self-confidence, stand firm, walk away when necessary, resist doing something when you know better. Appropriate worthwhile peers will respect you. The others are not worth your time and likely have ulterior motives. Live strong and well! ...Read more
You are bit older to: Be asking. I would talk to someone who you trust. Give yourself some time alone to make important decisions or those you trust who have had a history of making decisions in a sound manner. Give more space to those pressuring you and let them know you don't enjoy being told what to do /what is cool and how much you don't measure up. Part of growing up is knowing who you are and being ok with it. ...Read more
Possibly: I agree with my colleague; but would also ask that you consider the height (s) of you, your spouse, and your parent/family. The stature of the "family" does play a large part in the height of the child; and should take the fear out of the equation if the child is eating and otherwise developing normally. Petite parents have a good chance of having petite children; exception apply of course. ...Read more
Sometimes I almost pass out n feel really sick I found if I have a soda like dr pepper it makes me better what could be wrong with me?
Low blood sugar?: Two thoughts. First, and more likely, if the sugar is bringing you back then you may be experiencing low blood sugars, or hypoglycemia. Second, the caffeine in the soda could be bringing you around. I'd be concerned about the hypoglycemia, though. There is testing available for that. ...Read more
I feel like im a 25 yr old in an 18 yr olds girl body. I feel like im so far ahead maturity wise then my peers? It sucks help any advice?
Being unique: It's difficult to stand out from one's peers. The good news is that in the natural course of events, one rises over time into peer-groups that ever more closely match your unique mix of qualities. Very athletic people rise into groups of similarly skilled athletes by comparison to whom they differ less. Likewise for academic ability --and maturity. Be patient, talk to an older and wiser mentor. ...Read more
My grandma had alszheimers. I'm 26 and I seem to be more forgetful than my peers. Are there any tests for me to take to determine the cause?
Alzheimers unlikely: Common causes of impaired memory in young people include brain injury, drug/alcohol use, seizure disorder, sleep apnea/deprivation. You're too young for alzheimers. You could also be perfectly normal. Psychologists can administer careful memory tests to say whether your memory is normal, and if not, how it is not. You may want to run this by your primary care doc first, though: testing is $$. ...Read more
Recently I found out my phone has been hacked, it's made me worry to the point where I think planes are following me. My peers say I'm paranoid?
Where there's smoke: You're not totally paranoid if your phone really was hacked. It's understandable that you would worry that you're being watched. For instance, I might be a member of MI-6 recruited to write this to you. But I'm not. And it would be too expensive to have planes follow you. If you believe me, you're okay. If you don't, please seek further help. Seriously. ...Read more
My son is small for 12 (4'11).I am 5'2 and dad is over 6'2. His peers are bigger and growing. His growth plates haven't started closing. Will he grow?
