Is it safe to have sex while having a stomach flu?

Is it safe to have sex while having a stomach flu?

Transmission: Viral gastroenteritis is transmitted person to person.
An infected person may contaminate drinks, food, various surfaces and objects with germs. This is particularly a concern if hands are not properly washed. I would be concerned about transmission with various types of physical intimacy (although it is not a sexually transmitted disease).

Recurrent Vomiting: Infections are a common cause of vomiting in infants however the monthly pattern signals the possibility of a chronic or more serious condition such as a blockage in the digestive tract or kidney and brain disorders. Nutritional deficiency is also of concern. Because of the complex causes of recurrent vomiting, your infant should see a Pediatrician soon to provide correct diagnosis and treatment.

I take prometrium (micronized progesterone) 15 days of my cycle. I have the stomach flu. Is it safe to take right now?

It's perfectly safe: ...to take even if you have "stomach flu." However, if you vomit after taking promethium, it might not get into your system and, as a result, it might not be effective. If your symptoms last more than 3 days, I recommend you see your doctor or arrange for a Virtual Visit on HealthTap. Best wishes. Dr. Anne.

I have a painful stomach flu. Would it be safe and effective to take a hydrocodone?

Not really: Used according to prescription it wouldn't kill you, but it causes stomach irritation & constipation.As for fever or muscle aches you may have, NSAIDs like ibuprofen or naproxen (Advil or Aleve) are far more effective, but these, too, can cause stomach irritation.Pepto Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) is still a reasonable OTC treatment (but can also constipate) & Emetrol for nausea.Your dr. Can provide other alternatives.

Could I have cardiomyopathy after the stomach flu? How would I know?

Could I have cardiomyopathy after the stomach flu? How would I know?

It could happen: But your chances are overwhelmingly in favor of doing fine. A lot of gastro-intestinal viruses can cause cardiomyopathy but it is usually a combination of the bug and the patient's genetic predisposition of developing the disease. Symptoms can be very non-specific like palpitations, shortness of breath and increased fatigueability. The diagnosis can be made with an echocardiogram. See your doc.

Is it normal to feel fatigued and have no appetite for a week after the stomach flu?

Viral infection: Viral infections, if this in fact was influenza or flu-like syndrome are systemic (involving the entire body) and the immune responses combined with the damages done by the virus may produce these changes. Get some rest and if this does not begin to reverse itself in several more days, see your doctor.
