Stitches these days don't need to come out, whether a woman had a c/section or a tear/cut to her perineum during a vaginal delivery. At any rate, your provider will know what to do. ...Read more

I have a 15 year old child who a scheduled to see a ob/gyn should I go in with her or will it make her feel weird ?

Little bit of both: Usually i start with mom in the room to judge the situation but then ask mom to leave for a more confidential time with the teenager. In the state in which i practice, i need to obtain teens permission during this private time to discuss aspects of her situation with mom.

Are severe back and sharp side pains normal during pregnancy? I am 36 weeks. And i already have an appointment with my ob, just curious.

Are severe back and sharp side pains normal during pregnancy? I am 36 weeks. And i already have an appointment with my ob, just curious.

Most likely yes: Pains in your back and side are usually caused from pressure of the large uterus and swelling of the tissues which causes nerve blockage and therefor pain. If you notice decreased movement, vaginal bleeding, painful urination and fever/chills it could be something else and you should go to labor and delivery immediately! ...Read more
