Sugar free candy: There are diabetic candies which are sugar free (not for small children = choking hazard). Sugar free gum and lollypops would be good treats too.

Stop.: There is clearly a psycholigical component I cannot address, but! Wean yourself off sweets of any type, including juices, etc. Stop sodas and switch to unsweetened tea, water, and flavored selzer waters.

Possible: Pregnancy rates on Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot are quite low so though it is possible you are pregnant it isn't likely. Check a pregnancy test however irregular bleeding is common on Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) though the bleeding gets less the longer you use it. I'm not sure why you have nausea. ...Read more

Is it safe to have just one class of wine or champagne for valentines day while 29 weeks pregnant?
Well I had unprotected sex over valentines weekend, my guy came in me. No period yet & it was due yesterday. Can I be prego?
I have had my period twice this month, the last time I had sex was valentines day but 15 minutes after having sex I took the emergency pill?
It happens...: Emergency contraception pills (such as Plan B and other brands) can alter the menstrual for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. Also, be sure to start using a reliable form of birth control, so that one will not need Plan B. ...Read more

Low chance of preg: Ruby, if a condom was used correctly, preg prevention is very good. It may be that your cycle is just beginning. Give it a few more days. Some cycles are a bit shorter/longer than others by 2-3 days. A preg test should be positive when pregnant by the time a regular cycle is missed. The chance for conception/preg after sex is about 15-20% normally with sex and ejaculation inside. Prob all ok. ...Read more

There: There are a number of reasons why a child can develop abdominal pain, gastroenteritis (usually a viral infection of the intestines), appendicitis, a condition where the bowel folds in on itself called intussuception and occasionally something called a meckel's diverticulum. Since it sounds as if he cannot provide you with a good description of the pain and is clearly uncomfortable, it would be a good idea to have him see a physician to determine if there is a reason to admit and observe him or do additional testing. ...Read more

Neither affects the tongue, but if the infection of the throat or tonsils is severe enough, it may feel as though the tongue is sore. ...Read more
4yrs ago when I had vincent's angina of the throat, parts of my tonsils were scooped out. I was told it would patchup with time but hasn't. Worrisome?
No: Ludwig's angina is a serious condition that can become life threatening. Your tonsils were "scooped" out probably to drain an abscess that caused ludwig's. I would not expect them to look symmetrical or smooth. As long as you are not getting tonsil infections now you don't need to worry. ...Read more
Controversial: That's a tough question to answer. Certainly playing violent games seems to be associated with violence, though that doesn't mean the games actually caused the violence in the real world. I would say that in my judgement, children who are already vulnerable may be more easily influenced, and that kids who play these kids of games constantly are more likely to be affected. ...Read more
