Is it safe to have a gross pupal debrietment done during pregnancy, and to expect pain afterwards??

Is it safe to have a gross pupal debrietment done during pregnancy, and to expect pain afterwards??

Pulpal debribement: I personally feel the safest time to have dental treatment is during the middle trimester.
However, if you have an active infection, it is better to treat the infection as soon as possible rather than delay it by taking medication.
Treatment will eliminate the infection and any pain associated with the infection. ...Read more

I had sex the 17th. When can I take a pregnancy test and expect correct results?

I had sex the 17th. When can I take a pregnancy test and expect correct results?

Soon: 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. 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Hi, I'm 27 years and my menstruation cycle is about 35 days. After USG test I get 4 weeks of pregnancy but I expect 7 weeks to LMP date. Is it problem?

Hi, I'm 27 years and my menstruation cycle is about 35 days. After USG test I get 4 weeks of pregnancy but I expect 7 weeks to LMP date. Is it problem?

Very normal: Since you cycle is longer it is not surprising that you aren't as far along as you thought. Typically one ovulates, releases an egg, 14 days before the menstrual cycle starts. The first part of the cycle is the variable part. So you are 1-2 weeks less far along than someone witha typical 28 day cycle.
And it has no implications for having a healthy pregnancy!
Best of luck. ...Read more

How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

Anytime: Nipple discharge depends only on the amount of prolactin you create. If you are pregnant you already produce a lot, and if you are having a lot of nipple stimulation during sex, your prolactin will shoot up and you will start lactating or having discharge sooner. If the discharge is from both sides, don't worry about it. Be careful later on, as too much stimulation can cause early contractions. ...Read more
