When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
You aren't...: Exposure to cold weather, in and of itself, doesn't make you more prone to the flu. To be sure, more cold/flu infections do occur in the winter months, but it's thought that this is more related to opening of schools, staying indoors in close contact with others (who don't wash their hands!), and relatively lower humidity that can help some viruses out. So wash your hands and don't be afraid! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Possible: Typhoid infection requires a large number of bacteria taken orally from fecally contaminated materials.

Also, prior use of antibiotics may open binding sites on the intestinal surface which makes it easier for salmonella typhi to attach. ...Read more
You are likely to get sick if close to sick people indoors, but what if outdoors, are you likely to catch infections or does the fresh air protect u?
Sunlight kills germs: Yes - when we are indoors - it's much easier to 'catch' something from someone else...especially if they are NOT covering their sneeze or cough properly.

If you're hips are wide before pregnancy are they more likely to get wider during pregnancy or less likely to get wider during pregnancy?
Wide track for hips: A former car manufacturer, Pontiac, made several commercials featuring their "wide track" stance. The width of your bony pelvis and hips is presently a constant. However, pregnancy will allow the ligaments between the pelvic bone joints to be flexible enough to allow them to separate at delivery. Post partum those changes reverse, and if the hips get wider at that point, it is usually due to fat. ...Read more

Fungal allergies: Hello, that is a very good question. I diagnose fungal allergic rhinitis very often yet very few patients suffer from sinusitis let alone fungal sinusitis.

There is also the "logic" that you cannot actually vomit if there is NO FOOD ("Dry Heaves") Would suggest that there are effective anti-motion sickness medications available! (Used shortly BEFORE the actual motion exposure for best results) Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more
When is the worst time for a woman to participate In sexual activity if they are trying to prevent pregnancy?
Condom failure: It's probably not positions which break it. Condoms break if they are too small (lucky you), too old (check expiration date), stored improperly (heat and light must be avoided), or if an oil lubricant or no lubricant is used (use silicone or water based only). Buy fresh condoms in your size with water based lubricant, and you should have no problems. Remember to leave room for the reservoir tip. ...Read more
