Is fertilaid something I should consider? Is it a trustworthy pill? I read great reviews on it.24yrs old ttc miscarried8wks dec 11th. 2 periods since
It depends: After reading about fertilaid, i see that it likely won't hurt anything but I am more concerned about your infrequent periods since your miscarriage. That is a likely source for fertility problems. One miscarriage, though is not in itself worrisome. About 25% of pregnancies miscarry early like you did. I would suggest you see an ob/gyn about this issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dob: mar, 27, 2013, 28weeks preemie , they are sending her home after her car seat test she's 3lbs 14oz. I don't think she's ready to go home ...Is she?
Varies: Premi's should meet a minimum criteria for going home: gaining weight every day on feeds. Able to keep a normal body temperature in a crib. Not have need for a hospital based treatment modality or close observation. My routine is not to send home under 4.5 lb. The local neonatologist does around 4-4.5 lb. I am unaware of what your government run system considers appropriate standards. ...Read more

Are rural doctors less proficient than their urban counterparts? It seems like very reputable doctors would prefer a city with good technology.
Not necessarily!: There are "good" City Docs & "good" Country Docs. There are also "bad" City Docs & "bad" Country Docs. Doctors, independent of ability, are people, too. Lots of docs prefer no traffic or parking fees, & urban dangers for themselves & their families. They have the same concerns as you & the same unique preferences. Of course, there may not be as many high tech options & less specialty support. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Isnt abortion a choice for someones own good?Ive been reading blogs abt it. Women get called sluts and murderers.
Do NOT read blogs: Abortion is legal, yet remains a very controversial topic. Blogs are purely a means for people to give their personal opinions on issues. I would not read blogs, especially any that have to do with a medical procedure. To prevent a surgery that may carry some risk, as any procedure does, it would be recommended that if a woman knows she does not want to become pregnant, than safe sex is best. ...Read more
