If Postinor 2 tablets are taken once, on the last fertile day according to chat. And there are no period signs 14 days after. .. is there need to worr?

Worry a little bit: We always worry some, when EMERGENCY pills are needed. That's life. Plan B, Postinor 2, and other brands of emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the current cycle, and sometimes the next month's cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

Communication: At 4 months, typically-developing babies goo & coo reciprocally, as you describe. At 6 months they produce a string of syllables: da-da-da-da, ma-ma-ma-ma. At 9 months those become a non-specific ma-ma & da-da, with 3 words at a year, a specific ma-ma, da-da & ba-ba. At 6 months, learned behavior begins; babies lift up their arms to be picked up.

I think mom has depression, what signs can I look for? She's very difficult to talk to so how can I help her without a professional around?

Care and Concern: It is sometimes hard to talk to family members about feelings and emotions. I would encourage you to be patient for a time when things are relatively peaceful and calm. Then, just share your conncerns in a simple and gentle way. Remember, you cannot be responsible for how your mother reacts - just stay focused on showing her that you care about her and want to suport her. ...Read more

My late husband's daughter was active teacher and businesswoman. Now 68 and signs of cognitive impairment who should talk with her?

Anyone can: Dementia is a difficult thing to experience and address. It can be very subtle, but if it is now noticeable, the chances for her to be a danger to herself are greater (driving, leaving something unattended on the stove). Some reversible things can cause dementia, so best to be seen sooner to check into them. A physician can help discuss the problem and do a detailed exam to see how bad it is. ...Read more

Get help now: If you are right you can save yourself a great deal of grief by getting treatment before the symptoms become too severe. Generally psychiatric hospitalization isn't needed unless someone becomes dangerous to themselves or others and except in the case of real danger your doctor cannot lock you up against your will. You have a chance to save yourself a lot of misery --- use it. ...Read more

Am I able to receive a mental health diagnosis through a text chat?

At best a screening: Think about it. If you do, you'll see how unreliable it would be. Even with validated psychometric tests, experts differ often. Dx is seen by serious professionals is one of the greatest challenges.

I'm disabled vet on fixed income can't afford to just chat, sorry thank you.

Treatment: If someone is a vet and has limited resources the VA may be their best bet as many centers have addiction medicine programs. I would also recommend checking with the link I posted previously for resources. Also, NA and Smart Recovery do online meetings. I misunderstood your post as a request for general information not treatment. I do not think addiction treatment is possible through HealthTap. ...Read more

Is facebook chat as bad as the chat rooms of the 90s? Can kids get into trouble on it? So worried about my grandson.

Is facebook chat as bad as the chat rooms of the 90s? Can kids get into trouble on it? So worried about my grandson.

Yes and no: Facebook can be as bad, but it's more of a sin of commission than before. With facebook, you can filter who knows your information or can post on your page, but once somebody is a friend, they have access to everything, including information about your friends. Children can give too much personal information to people who shouldn't have it. More dangerous as teens don't recognize it. ...Read more
