Hve only 1 kidney & controlled HPN. I smoked weed for the first time last night. Is there any bad effects  of weed on my kidney?

We simply don't know: about the impact of "weed" or many other plants on the human body. Given your medical situation you would be prudent not to take the risk of smoking. We do know that it has negative effects on the brain. See the work of Daniel Amen, MD and his brain scan studies. Medical THC is another matter. Peace and good health. ...Read more

No.: Nothing happens to the penis. You may bleed a little. Make sure your partner is careful to make sure you are well lubricated and aroused to avoid unnecessary discomfort. Be sure he is disease free and if he has had sex without someone else in the last year, be sure he wears a condom. ...Read more

Do pre-existing conditions worsen in pregnancy?

Do pre-existing conditions worsen in pregnancy?

Yes: Preparation for a high-risk pregnancy should begin months in advance of stopping contraception. The best approach is to find out before trying to conceive (ttc) if there are tests to be done or medications to be changed. I advise both partners to make family histories, lists of medications and toxins to which they're exposed, checklists of qs they want to ask and to take them to an mfm specialist. ...Read more
