3 beers would not: Do it. CPK is an enzyme that muscle cells contain. So if you had recent muscle damage or a bruise, it will raise its value. Sometimes statin class of drugs that lowers cholesterol can raise cpk. Ask the doctor who ordered the test why he got it and what the abnormality means to you. ...Read more

Am I pregnant I was on the mirerna and had it removed in nov and started my regular cycle right away my last cycle was 11/4/11 I have been experiencing breast tenderness and lower stomach pain. We have been trying to conceive but I have taken a test 2 da
A: A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate when taken at least 5-6 weeks after your last normal period. There is a possibility of becoming pregnant immediately after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed, but for many it takes a little longer than that. If you continue to have symptoms and continue to not have your period, go see your doctor. They have tests that can detect a pregnancy earlier than a home pregnancy test - testing is the only way to know whether you are pregnant or not. ...Read more
34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?
Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility. ...Read more
