What questions should I ask my doctor if i had two chemical pregnancies?

What questions should I ask my doctor if i had two chemical pregnancies?

Pregnancy method?: If the pregnancy was performed by IVF or Intrauterine insemination then it is usually clear cut as to the pregnancy status if the MD is doing the testing. If the "chemical pregnancy" was diagnosed without testing, that would be my first question as to whether there really was a "pregnancy". ...Read more

Thyroid scan: A tiny amount of radioactive iodine (rai) is given to light up the thyroid. They measure the uptake of rai: high, low, normal. High is typical in hyperthyroidism, esp graves. Low may mean thyroiditis. The scan also indicates structure: nodules (functioning, or not), homogeneous uptake, etc. This test needs to be interpreted alongside thyroid levels, symptoms, exam, ultrasound, etc. ...Read more

What do you recommend if I had a few questions about my sinus surgery yesterday?

What do you recommend if I had a few questions about my sinus surgery yesterday?

Strange question: I'm sorry but if you had sinus surgery yesterday, why would you ask an outside nasal surgeon about questions you should ask your surgeon. Your surgeon is responsible for all pre-op benefits and risks of surgery on the sinuses and the post-op care until you are healed. You need to ask every conceivable question that you want to know. Sorry, but my patients would never ask an outside source. ...Read more

I just had my first mammogram at 51. I received a call asking me to come in for more films.Should i be concerned? They asked me if i used a cane, crutches or walker? Why? Also i only need my left breast re-examined? I am concerned about cancer

I just had my first mammogram at 51. I received a call asking me to come in for more films.Should i be concerned? They asked me if i used a cane, crutches or walker? Why? Also i only need my left breast re-examined? I am concerned about cancer

Do : Do not be worried yet, but do go back for more films as requested. Sometimes additional images of one breast are needed because an area could not be fully examined on the standard images. Most of the time these extra views do clear things up and confirm that nothing is there. This doesn't mean that you will get called back for extra images with every mammo in the future. They usually ask about crutches, walker, or wheelchair in case they have to do something different to get the mammograms; most of the time women stand at the machine and this might not be possible for someone needing a device to help them stand. ...Read more

My doctor was giving me a pap smear yesterday and asked me how many kids do i already have, what could be the reason she asked?

Routine question--: This is information any doctor needs to have on record, like if you have allergies or ever had surgery or any chronic disease.

14 week surgical Abortion vs miscarriage. Does the womb look the same a day later or will a doctor be able to tell it was an abortion if he scanned me?

14 week surgical Abortion vs miscarriage. Does the womb look the same a day later or will a doctor be able to tell it was an abortion if he scanned me?

Experienced Dr Knows: Surgical abortion (or miscarriage) has stretching of the the cervix, the lowest part of the uterus, to remove the fetus. That stretching leaves bruising, tiny (less than 1/8" long) tears, bleeding, and even clots or tissue. An OB/GYN will definitely know SOMETHING went on with your cervix. If you are trying to hide your abortion from your doctor, ask yourself why. Your doctor needs to know. ...Read more

Six years ago i had an abortion. I'am 24 years old that time. Is there possibility to detect  or the doctor will know about it?
Thank you!

Unlikely: It is unlikely to detect a previous abortion unless instrumentation was used and even then it is still unlikely. You may want to consider telling your doctor, however. There is patient-doctor confidentiality which prevents them from sharing your information without your permission. Plus, information kept from your doctor can only hinder your care. ...Read more
