Will a baby have problems when a woman drunk several glasses of alcohol on Week 5 of pregnancy? (she didn't know she was pregnant yet)

Unlikely: Single exposures are unlikely to have a noticeable effect on the baby. I is as common occurance in the way you describe. While it's effect may not ever be noticed, there is no way to be sure any alcohol exposure has not done something, so not drinking any more is the only realistic thing you can do. ...Read more

Is rom chocolate considered illegal to eat before driving? I will get my licence soon and I need to know. It has 15% alcohol and I never got drunk.

Is rom chocolate considered illegal to eat before driving? I will get my licence soon and I need to know. It has 15% alcohol and I never got drunk.

Not illegal but...: I don't know the laws where you live but in most places it is not illegal to consume small amounts of alcohol before driving. It is illegal to consume an amount of alcohol that will impair your ability to drive. That is usually at least 2 drinks in a short time. You would probably have to consume many ROM chocolate bars to become intoxicated/impaired so having one or two bars should be safe. ...Read more

It has been 3 days after i got drunk and i still feel some symptoms of being drunk. What can I do to help? Could I have alcohol poisoning? Please help

Learning can hurt: I believe we use the term alcohol poisoning to describe the condition when the blood alcohol level is so high you are comatose and may forget to breathe.I saw it a few times taking er call in the navy. The day after process, brain fog, etc are true toxic effects but are a prolonged hangover effect., try to maintain good hydration and a simple diet.It should pass in a few more days.If not see doc. ...Read more

I got drunk for the first time on vodka & now i can't even stand the smell of alcohol, it makes me want to throw up will the reaction ever go away?

Maybe, but why?: Saves money, saves excess calories, prevents reckless behaviors. No one "has to have" alcohol in their diet or life. If the revulsion passes, ok, drink in moderation to prevent second occurrence. If not, remind yourself of the positives. ...Read more

I have mono. I got drunk 4 nights ago. My spleen hurts now. If I went to doctor and they took tests, would they still know that I drank alcohol?

I have mono. I got drunk 4 nights ago. My spleen hurts now. If I went to doctor and they took tests, would they still know that I drank alcohol?

If you told them: It is wise to be truthful when you go in for evaluation. I don't know how you know for sure your pain is from your spleen , since internal organs don't have nerve fibers that let you localize the pain that well. Drinking with mono is more a problem for your liver,Spleen swelling is common with mono but not worsened by drinking.The alcohol cleared your system within a day. ...Read more

I have mono. Got drunk 4 nights ago. left side hurts now. If I went to doctor and they run tests would they know I drank alcohol? It's been 4 days

No worries: There are no lab tests that would show you had had alcohol recently. A blood alcohol test would do it, but wouldn't show anything after 4 days. Get the care you need; don't worry about this aspect. ...Read more

Through my whole pregnancy I drunk whole mulk and was constipated for the longest time, why?

Through my whole pregnancy I drunk whole mulk and was constipated for the longest time, why?

What else do you eat: Whole milk is high in fat, fat slows down stomach emptying, and bowels. Prenatal vitamins are high in calcium and iron-both can be constipating. What else did you eat? Need more fluid, fruits, veggies, whole grains during pregnancy; beans help too (may be too gassy for some). Hormonal changes in pregnancy affect bowel function too.. ...Read more
