Find an advocate!: You haven't given much information about what situation you're in, but you may need someone to help sort things out and even advocate for you. I have found that the nurse who is caring for you is often an excellent advocate (this probably reflects my nursing background!). Talk to your nurse, the head nurse, or even the nursing supervisor. You may make some waves, but you may see results. Lgromko. ...Read more

Blood pressure: Blood pressure varies throughout day and in response to activity. 100/60 is fine as long as you're not dizzy or lightheaded. But in general, BP that's regularly greater than 150/90 is worrisome due to increase risk for stroke plus kidney & heart disease. Check BP at rest after sitting still at least 5min. Track activities prior to measurement eg caffeine, exercise, etc. Then discuss w/ur FamilyDoc ...Read more
No ejaculation?: The secretions from the penis during sex (without actual ejaculation) can contain sperm. If ovulation is within 3-4 days of this, pregnancy can occur. If your period is "late", a serum HCG test about a week after your period is "due" will confirm if you are pregnant or not. ...Read more
Could be trouble: The problem with this situation is twofold. First, how do you know that you are not near ovulation? If you are 2-3 days before an unexpected period, you are probably right...if not, all bets are off. The bigger problem is that sperm can last last a while in the birth canal, perhaps for a week. So if you ovulate even a week from now you could become pregnant from this episode of intercourse. ...Read more

My boyfriend precame a little in me. I just finished my perriod 4 days ago. Will I get pregnant? I took 3 bc pills 48 hours later
Here are some. ..: Nowadays. Guessing if pregnant or not is impractical.

I have taken zentel 400 for 10 days for ascaris. I finished 4 days ago but symptoms still prevail. Any reason for this?
RE: Zentel: I would agree that a 10 day course of zentel is longer than usual, and should have treated the ascariasis. I would submit another stool specimen for bacterial culture, along with ova/parasite exam. I would strongly doubt ascariasis is an active problem at this time and attempt to exclude other problems. Gastrointestinal input with possible colonoscopy might be of benefit. Good luck. ...Read more
