Need more data: If one exercises for 9 minutes or more on a standard bruce protocol stress test, even if one has known coronary disease, the prognosis is excellent. However, decisions concerning further testing, such as a stress echo test or an angiogram, take into consideration the presence or absence of angina (chest pain) during the test, the amount of abnormality on the ekg during the test and other factors. ...Read more

Probably: It's impossible to know for sure since we don't know what's going on with you. If your cardiologist thinks you need a treadmill test, you probably do. Congratulations on your great echo, though! ...Read more

My daughter urinalysis test says she had few bacteria, Epithelial cells, Mucus Threads and Amorphous Urates are RARE. What does it mean?

Not much: The assessment of the findings depends a lot on how it was obtained.Most 6 yo females will squat and pee, with minimal preparation and give a sample representing a vaginal washout + bladder contents. All the elements in this report are normal for such a specimen. If prepared well and done by catheter,you expect less debris. ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant back pain last 4 days left middle back, doc said urine routine, test yest WBC 15-20 hpf, epithelal 5-10, mucus threads, ceftum250x2/d?

Agree: It sounds like you might have a bladder infection, so it was appropriate to treat. But did they check your cervix? Did they place you on the monitor to see if you are just contracting? If you pain is still there, and they did not do any of these things, then call your ob/gyn for further evaluation. ...Read more

Gf pregnant or something wrong? Month late, 4 test(fr&cb) all negative, she's irreg., no sex unless dry humping can make semen go through clothes?

Gf pregnant or something wrong? Month late, 4 test(fr&cb) all negative, she's irreg., no sex unless dry humping can make semen go through clothes?

Irregular = not late: If she normally does not have a regular cycle, then it is only late from when it "might" have been expected. If multiple tests negative, and no significant semen exposure (as you describe), then likely not pregnant. Can check next month to be sure & see gyn if no period for two months unless she occasionally runs 3 months between periods. ...Read more

Keep on swimming: Even marine mammals like dolphins and whales can't get pregnant without having sex. We humans have no chance at all, if the dolphins and whales can't do it. Swimming, especially swimming several times a week, is good exercise and will keep one's mind and body healthier. ...Read more

Irregular periods: It is unlikely your girl friend is pregnant. If she has a history of irregular periods then a missed period may be nothing to be concerned about. It is recommended that she consider reliable birth control such as birth control pills. These can give her a regular period and prevent accidental pregnancy. She should see her doctor. ...Read more

Home pregnancy test which came out negative . but still a virgin , worried about being pregnant from fingering on clothes . pregnant ? or no ?

Virgin: if you had sperm go into your vagina then there is the possibility of pregnancy no matter how it got there. If no sperm got in there then there is no possibility. If you miss a period then check a pregnancy test. Activity like you describe often leads to further activities, you may want to consider birth control if you do not wish to be pregnant at this time. ...Read more

If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
