Hello I was wondering . 
Is it safe to wear scented panty liners? 
Also,
I have a holiday booked for the 5th of May this year to which I'll be 2 months pregnant, it's agadir in morrocco, is it safe to travel here? 

Many thanks Tiffany

Yes: Scented panty liners are safe but they do irritate the skin of a lot of women. The safety of Morrocco on the other hand is open to question for all travelers in the current political enviroment. The usual travel precautions about food and water still apply and u need to check with your doctor about vaccinations or prophylaxis against malaria, etc. Some of those may b contraindicated in pregnancy. ...Read more

ORTHOEVRA : Orthoevra patch is a convenient form of contraception. If your blood pressure is normal and you do not have medical problems, I recommend it. There is evidenc that the estrogen level is slightly than the usual low dose birth control pills, but this is not a concerning with you. ...Read more

My baby girl is 3 and a half months old... It is difficult to make her sleep during day time. Any tips?

My baby girl is 3 and a half months old... It is difficult to make her sleep during day time. Any tips?

Watch her rhythms: You can't make a child sleep, just make them want to sleep, or give them opportunity to sleep. Those whose children sleep routinely in the day get them to do so by watching their daily rhythms, and starting calming behaviors around that time, making sure there is a bed nearby. Some children simply do not nap, but start by watching daily rhythms and work to time nap time accordingly. ...Read more

Sure...: Sure plenty of ideas, but no concrete answers. You may have a cavity, periodontal disease, a loose filling, or even a fractured tooth. Only way to tell for sure is by examination with a radiograph. Make an appointment with a local dentist. ...Read more

I sleep on my back all the time. Any other pose makes me uncomfortable. Is it good or bad sleeping on back? Which sleeping pose you advise?

Most comfortable: There is no "best" position for sleeping. But if you have snoring or sleep apnea, it will probably be worse when you are sleeping on your back. People with neck pain may have trouble when they sleep on their stomachs. The best position for people with lower back pain is to sleep on their backs with a pilliw under their knees. ...Read more

Hello, I had done tiffa scan on Oct 1 4 impressions result was missed abortion as I am not satisfied vit the report can I get it done next day Pl sig.

I don't know: I'm not sure what determines that in India. Tiffa scans are known as Ultrasounds in the states and are very safe in pregnancy or at any time since there is no radiation exposure. The question here would be insurance coverage or patient's willingness to pay and the doctor's willingness to order it. Another alternative would be quantitative HCG levels 2 or 3 days apart. With a missed abortion they fall ...Read more

My wife done tiffa scan at 20 th week, doctor told baby kidney is 3.7 mm. Is that normal?

My wife done tiffa scan at 20 th week, doctor told baby kidney is 3.7 mm. Is that normal?

No: The normal length of a kidney in a 20 wk fetus should be 2.1 cm (21 mm). I trust the other kidney was more normal? It is possible that the small kidney may not have formed and the adrenal gland was measured. Sometimes a kidney may form in the pelvis or on the same side as the other kidney. The fetus may require a repeat scan later on to further evaluate the situation. ...Read more

35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal .is there any problem,prior tiffa normal.

Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more

I m21 weeks pregnant. In my tiffa scan report fetal brain is slightly prominent lateral ventricales measuring8mm in diameter. Is it serious problem??

You listed 8 mm which is in the normal range. Discuss your specific results with your doctor and ask if any abnormal findings were noted.

Recent studies show that 90% of people with tongue scalloping suffer obstructive sleep apnea. See your PCP for consultation, tests and treatment if needed. ...Read more
