1472764 tn?1287591786 Please, please, please somebody tell me that you've experienced the wierd ammonia smell down there. My body has been doing all kinds of wierd things lately and this is the worst. I'm 8 1/2 weeks if that helps. I'm hoping its not some wierd infection I've gotten and just normal. I can seriously smell it when I go to pee. It soooo yucky.

1123156 tn?1338866969 my mom went premature a lil early and im YOUNG too young for this LOL. Do you think it's safe to use ammonia free hair dye such as clairol natural instincts??
1391695 tn?1298143389 It would appear your liver can convert the small small small amount that might be able to get into your eyes easily enough. Ammonia also plays a role in both normal and abnormal animal physiology. Ammonia is biosynthesised through normal amino acid metabolism and is toxic in high concentrations.[51] The liver converts ammonia to urea through a series of reactions known as the urea cycle.
Avatar f tn I would think it's fine, just make sure you're in a well ventilated room. I've colored my hair this pregnancy and as long as I was in a bigger room the smell wasn't too strong.
Avatar m tn I've never heard of dark urine being a sign of pregnancy. You really do need to drink more water. Drop the soda/coffee/tea as these are diuretics and can dehydrate you. If your urine has a strong ammonia smell, you need to call your doctor about a possible infection. The rule of thumb for drinking water is that you need to drink half your weight in ounces every day. So if you weigh 145, you need to drink 72.5 ounces of water a day.
Avatar f tn I have heard of this and it isn't safe at all nor remotely accurate. Urine has ammonia in it and when ammonia and bleach mix it releases a very toxic gas, and almost always when urine hits bleach it will fiz or foam that's what creates the gas. I had a friend who tried this once in high school, (just for fun, she wasn't pregnant nor did she want to be) and she ended up in the hospital from the gas it created. Sorry didn't mean to scare you just stating the facts.
Avatar f tn Is it ok to dye/ bleach hair during pregnancy I'm in my 2nd trimester and really want a change. But don't want it if it will harm the baby. Has anyone ever colored hair while pregnant?
Avatar f tn I understand that using hair dye in pregnancy is not safe. But what about natural hair dye that does not contain PPD an ammonia? Is that safe. I found Vegetal Bio colour! any body has experience of using this?
Avatar f tn Pregnancy Pimples? Get a Pro's Advice continued... "I prescribe topical medications that contain azelaic acid, erythromycin, or clindamycin," says Jeanie Leddon, MD, PhD, a dermatologist in Lafayette, Colo. "Glycolic acid peels are also safe." Some doctors may feel comfortable recommending very small amounts of cream with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic wash. It is safe to wash your face with warm water and a gentle cleanser two times a day. But don't scrub.
Avatar f tn I was told if you're concerned about the baby in the first trimester to wait until you're in the second one...
1577200 tn?1331729319 I dyed my hair in the 2nd tri with my son, and I may dye it in the 2nd tri with this pregnancy. You just have to make sure the room is super ventilated. But AnnieBrooke had a good suggestion, to err on the side of caution you could always just do highlight treatments if it makes you nervous.
Avatar f tn They also recommended oil bases like redken chromatics or the olia color since there is no ammonia in them. Bhope this helps!
99627 tn?1301274552 i have my hair cut every 4 wks dont worry it cant harm you i have had my hair coloured twice since being pregnant at the hair dressers. Have it cut it will make you feel better.
Avatar f tn Being in the 35+ group I'm sure you also had to face this dilemma: did you continue dying your hair normally or did you let those greys & whites take over? Is hair color bad for the baby? What did you do?
Avatar n tn I have heard that you shouldnt dye you're hair in pregnancy because it can wreck you're hair.. Do you think its safe or should i wait??
Avatar f tn I can't remember what its called, but there is a natural hair dye that is supposedly safe during pregnancy. It is a British product that I bought in the organic food section of my grocery store (Loblaws). It isn't quite the same as henna which did not cover my grey. I have been grey since I was 19, so I know how you feel.
Avatar m tn Actually its not a myth. Sperm cant survive the ammonia in urine. Its way we precum. to get all trace amounts of urine out. However, this has nothing to do with getting pregnant. And sperm in the vagina can survive up to 5 days. And for women, peeing doesn't do much, the sperm can hid.
Avatar f tn But most toners have very strong chemicals in them so just watch out for that when ur head is in the shampoo bowl and it's not ventilated that we'll the smell might make u sick! Make sure u tell the person doing it that ur pregnant to be clear because some salons won't do it!
Avatar f tn I felt so stupid, and my in-laws felt bad. THEN, with my last pregnancy (which ended in m/c) my son's teacher was pregnant too, and after I m/c, it was hard for me to talk to (or even look at) her for a while. So you go home & cry if you want, okay? And after that, you make up with your honey and get down to business.

Avatar f tn I am 7 weeks pregnant and wanted to ask whether its safe to use an ammonia free semi permanent hair color to color my hair?
377412 tn?1283813246 but did anyone notice a change in vaginal odor and discharge during their pregnancy?? All the books and websites Ive been on not ONE mentioned this. And its just odd smelling (of course I have HYPERSENSITIVE nose these days too). But I just recently noticed it. And the discharge is very slight no spotting or anything to be alarmed about. But just wanted to hear what some of u much further along experienced. Ericka 8.
