Sore mouth from?: This would have to be personally seen by a dentist or physician in order to try to diagnose the problem. With the limited information you posted, it would be impossible to determine what the problem is. Sorry. ...Read more

What to do if I am so sad after of me and my husband trying to get pregnat he finally got an sa?

What to do if I am so sad after of me and my husband trying to get pregnat he finally got an sa?

Semen analysis?: We'd love to help and perhaps you can clarify. "SA" is semen analysis, right? Did he discover that there's a problem? There are many options. It may be treatable, a sperm may be recoverable from his testis, some couples may ask a close relative of his to donate, or you can find meaning by adopting or caring / nurturing needy kids in the neighborhood who may not have great parents. ...Read more

Hallo, my husband has bxo and no one in sa can help him, the surgery only last 2 months before its back, this bxo is internal. What can we do?

BXO: Balanitis xerotica obliterans is also known as lichen sclerosis of the penis. It is most common in uncircumcised penises and can cause urethral obstructive symptoms when it involves the urethral meatus or distal urethra. If this is the case, you may need to find a urologist familiar with the plastic repair of such urethral narrowing. Topical or intralesional steroids can be helpful in mild case. ...Read more

I suffer from migraines & nothing here in the usa has worked for me so far. In sa, i used meds with codeine which worked. Any OTC alternative here?

Yes: Would not recommend any opiates, as there is rebound and the problem gets worse. Instead, focus of prevention, and this includes prescription meds, but also botox. Have had amazing success with petadolex, but also have used feverfew, riboflavin, magnesium, and co-q-10, all of which are otc. Maybe a nearby headache specialist can guide you. ...Read more

What does this mean? Ive gotten the same result 5yrs apart HepB sa - nonreactive HepB sag QL- nonreactive HepB Core AB - reactive HepB sa - < 5 mIU/ml

What does this mean? Ive gotten the same result 5yrs apart
HepB sa - nonreactive
HepB sag QL- nonreactive
HepB Core AB - reactive
HepB sa - < 5 mIU/ml

Sa: want it reactive: Having the same serology results as one had last time, usually means the same thing as they meant last time. HepB sa likely means "surface antibody," for which "nonreactive" means not immune (and not guaranteed non-infectious in this type of situation). If vaccines were done after last time's lab results, and HepB sa is still nonreactive, the doctor might not do any more vaccinations. ...Read more

I want to know that if anybody had a sex before marriage then a husband can tell she is not a virgin. If we put a gap into 3 years in sex i mean to sa?

Whoa: There are many misunderstandings here. The hymen is not a tough membrane like the seal on a jar of instant coffee. It is flexible and how it looks does not correlate well with sexual history, especially a few episodes. Your doctor can explain further. If your husband-to-be will actually love you less should it somehow be proved you had intercourse years earlier, you have my sympathy. ...Read more

Am i fertile sa normal 64 abnorm 36 on sperm analysis?

Am i fertile sa normal 64 abnorm 36 on sperm analysis?

Semen analysis: Semen analysis is not a test of fertility rather an evaluation of production of sperm. Even with slight abnormalities fertility may not necessarily be affected. I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to pertain to morphology. If that is the case, those numbers are fine. The remaining numbers referring to count and motility are also important for full assessment. ...Read more

Would Benadryl (diphenhydramine) work for my mild sa?

Would Benadryl (diphenhydramine) work for my mild sa?

?sa: I am going to assume "sa" is seasonal allergies. So, yes, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would work for these, but is certainly not the optimal answer. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tends to be sedating and also needs to be taken 4 times a day for optimal effect. If you are having to take doses that often to keep symptoms under control, should consider alternative treatment for allergies. If "sa" not allergies, please resubmit question. ...Read more

Taking Humira (adalimumab) (40) for SA and getting good results but pain returns 6-7 days before next shot. Any suggestions?+I'm on pain meds but really want off.

Mgt: This sometimes can occur prior to the dose, but I would recommend treating the pain with a heating pad and pain medication. Shortening the interval may increase the adverse reactions. Other possible changes to your regimen can include lowering the dose but giving the medication on a shorter interval. It is important to be tested for TB while taking the medication. ...Read more

Is it true if genotype AS and SA get married they will give birth to SS ?

Is it true if genotype AS and SA get married they will give birth to SS ?

CAN, not will!: Hi. The chance of AS parents having an SS child is 25%. Based on Mendelian distribution (which the sickle gene follows), 25% of children will be AA homozygotes, 50% will be AS heterozygotes, and 25% will be SS homozygotes. Amniotic genotyping is possible, and you could prevent an SS homozygote with testing. As you and your wife know, heterozygotes generally do fine. Peace and good luck. ...Read more

If av node depolarizes faster than sa node, would heart rate equal rate of av node depolarization?

If av node depolarizes faster than sa node, would heart rate equal rate of av node depolarization?

Av node: There can be competition between the sinus node and av node when the av node depolarization rate is similar to that of the sinus node. If the av node is faster than the sinus, then it can take over and cause av nodal escape rhythm the rate usually would be that of the av node, but can be more if some sinus beats get through. ...Read more

My DH and I have been TTC for 5 mo.  Our intercourse is well timed and frequent leading up to 0 with no success He is 40, should he get SA?

Fertility testing: If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than 12 months without success then fertility testing is warranted. If your periods are not regular then you may not be ovulating. Your husband can do a semen analysis. An Xray called and HSG can be done to make sure your anatomy provides an open pathway for the sperm to find an egg. ...Read more

My friend can't keep any food down w/o vomiting. And she doesn't feel sick before it happens. And is haveing normal bm'sa. What could this be? Shes 16

Cyclic vomiting: After a check up w/doc or GI doc and other conditions are ruled out, it is possible that your friend has cyclic vomiting syndrome. It is mysterious in origin but treatable. Behavior therapy, clinical hypnosis, and stress management can help break the cycle. Peace and good health. Thanks for being a good friend to her. ...Read more

Will Paxil be as effective as the first time i took it? Right now im on pristiq (desvenlafaxine) but i think im gonna get back to paxil... Cz it really helped my SA

Discuss...: Talk to your provider about this first before making any changes yourself. If you were changed to another medication while you were taking Paxil (paroxetine) before there is most likely a good reason. Mental health medication is not harmless so it is very important that they are handled and taken as recommended. Different people react differently to medication. That's why it is important to f/u w/ your doctor. ...Read more

How soon should i give vitamins to my baby? Also is it still advisable that I'll let her have some karolyte (not sure with the spelling) but my mom sa

ProbablyNever;Whole: foods much better choice. Why? Vitamins=simple molecules so common in so many foods, humans have not retained every gene to make every protein (typically missing only 1 of many steps) so as to manufacture them out of other molecules. Thus the key is Real Food. Vitamins=marketing to sell stuff extracted from otherwise food waste for $. The ONLY common vit. deficiency 1st world countries is D3. ...Read more

Our daughter is 24.  My first cousin had schizophrenia.  I have noticed lately in our conversations, sometimes I have no idea what she is trying to sa?

Common for that: Illness. Disorganized speech and meaningless conversation happens in that condition. Spend time with her to understand what she means. Let her use sign language and write out what she means, sometimes your intuition can tell you what is the meaning of what she is saying or why she is saying what she is saying. ...Read more
