Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy stages wiki


Avatar f tn Timing intercourse for her fertile period (and refraining from or greatly reducing the frequency of ejaculating the rest of the time), should increase your sperm's quantity and quality. Wiki has a good write-up that describes in much more detail how to understand a semen analysis. The folk remedies Fertisure M and Shilajit seem relatively harmless but of likely no possible benefit (perhaps the zinc in Fertisure M may be helpful if you were deficient in zinc).
Avatar n tn I know that my doctor told me that some pregnancy tests don't pick up pregnancy in the earlier stages, like 1 or 2 weeks. I would definitely try again a week or so. Good luck.
1416390 tn?1333905204 During my scan, they found considerable amounts of amniotic fluid around one baby and think I am in the early stages of TTTS- twin to twin transfusion syndrome. They are sharing the same placenta and one is getting the 'left overs' from the stronger twin. I really need to research it more- I read the wiki definition and it was too negative and scary! There is a TTTS foundation and I will look into that more. From what I have read early onset is not a good thing.
Avatar n tn Kegel is a popular prescribed exercise for pregnant women to prepare the pelvic floor for physiological stresses of the later stages of pregnancy and vaginal childbirth. Kegel exercises are said to be good for treating vaginal prolapse[6] and preventing uterine prolapse[7] in women and for treating prostate pain and swelling resulting from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatitis in men. Kegel exercises may be beneficial in treating urinary incontinence in both men and women.

Avatar m tn They are absolutely sure that this is not a pregnancy related complication, such as pre-eclampsia?
1422615 tn?1334067834 This is especially common in the very early stages of pregnancy because the lining hasn't had a chance to completely attach to the placenta. Although a scary thought, it is not generally considered to be a health risk to neither mother or baby. 5. Getting pregnant while on the pill. This is often associated with bleeding during a pregnancy and can be confused with a menstrual period. Many women will have several bleeding episodes before they realize something isn't right.
Avatar f tn Had an MRI in 08 that showed areas of non-specific white matter--said they could be from headaches, but very early stages of demylineating condition could not be ruled out. Jan 09, had dx Laparoscopy for weird periods. Found cyst on rt ovary and scarring around sig. colon. Found out I was pregnant 1 week after surgery. Difficult pregnancy, preterm labor bouts--had healthy full-term baby Sept. 09. Moved 3,000 miles, husband deployed for 7 months, did pretty well considering!
Avatar n tn Many drs have never heard of CSS. My daughter's diagnosis came in stages because she was so little when it all started. She is thought to be the youngest case in the world medical literature. It is almost always in adults only. When she was a infant she had life threatning infections(whihc they think triggered it), that led to bad asthma and lung damage. She had horrible severe asthma from infancy on, numerous infections, and sinuses all the time.
Avatar f tn com/article/145066-the-effects-of-hypothyroidism-in-pregnancy/ The Effects of Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy The Effects of Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy Hypothyroidism is the medical term used to describe an abnormally low level of thyroid hormone. Low levels of thyroid hormone result in a slowed-down metabolism and may result in such symptoms as fatigue, weight gain and decreased ability to withstand cold temperatures.
Avatar n tn I have read that a month's worth of doxycycline in the very early stages usually takes care of the Lyme, and that's what your goal should be. Most local docs will do at least that much. If you do not feel well when that is done, then a Lyme specialist is called for, because the Lyme ticks also carry other nasty and separate diseases that need different diagnosis and different treatment. But first thing: get thee to a doc NOW, do not delay.
Avatar n tn take a home pregnancy test. Spotting in early pregnancy is normal, but you should watch if it gets heavy with clots and if you have cramping. If you are spotting and pregnant, you will want to get in to see a Dr. asap. Good luck to you!!

Avatar f tn Higher HCV viral loads may be associated with a greater risk of HCV transmission, particularly transmission from mothers to infants during pregnancy or birth. Viral load has not been correlated with the risk of sexual transmission. Furthermore, a correlation between HCV viral load and disease progression has not been shown!!! "the lowering of VL might help in staving off further cancer." How? In the vast majority of cases HCC only occurs in patients with cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn BEFORE OR 1HR. AFTER MEDICINE. Charcoal binds to toxins and will absorb your dose. This could mean pregnancy while on the pill. It took me a long time to figure out that it was a PMS symptom and not IBS or allergy. This was a relief. Now I can prepare for it. I have a reminder in my computer calendar to let me know its coming. Hope this helps like it did for me! Certainly worth a try.
Avatar n tn Chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone found in the female body during the early months of pregnancy (it is produced in the placenta). It is in fact the pregnancy indicator looked at by the over the counter pregnancy test kits, as due to its origin it is not found in the body at any other time. Blood levels of this hormone will become noticeable as early as seven days after ovulation. The level will rise evenly, reaching a peak at approximately two to three months into gestation.
1405176 tn?1281137777 So anyway, we are trying to absolve ourselves of guilt (we did take care of him), and trying to remember how every synapse in his body went on 100% alert when we threw something in the woods, how he stationed himself in the window to guard the house every night, how happy he was to play with the boys, laying his head on my wife's lap in the mornings while she had coffee. I'm sure you all are just ticking off the stages of grief as you observe, thanks.
Avatar n tn Some people have few, if any, problems in the early stages of the disease, whereas others experience signs and symptoms that may include: Anemia Fatigue Abdominal discomfort Joint aches (arthralgias) Itching (pruritus) Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice) An enlarged liver Abnormal blood vessels on the skin (spider angiomas) Nausea and vomiting Liver scarring (cirrhosis) Fluid in the abdomen (ascites) Mental confusion It's common for people with autoimmune hepat
Avatar n tn //, which are known to cause actual tendon ruptures. It sounds like you're already aware of this, but just figured I'd throw it out there for everyone to check out in case it pertains to them. If anyone is taking a Quinolone antibiotic and you're having symptoms similar to Shorrocks, you should discuss this with your doctor right away. For many of us, though, I think the type of pain and how it is triggered is different.
Avatar n tn I am in my forties and have had this problem on and off since my late thirties. A couple things seem to help. First, change your diet a little as your period approaches and eat less red meat, dairy, sugar, chocolate and processed foods and try to eat more whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables and maybe even some foods with soy protein. Dairy and red meat contain hormones that can contribute to estrogen dominance causing hormonal balance.

376008 tn?1312484756 One thing I remembered from my uni days is Freud's Psychosexual stages of which there are five but I think the anal stage is relevant to this... here is a bit of info... "Anal Stage: 18 months - 3.5 years (approx.) Physical focus: anus (elimination). Until now the baby has had it pretty easy. Now baby is supposed to control bowels. Freud believed baby?s sexual pleasure centred around the anus at this time. Psychological theme: self-control/obedience.
Avatar n tn and for me at least, I can use Vaseline anywhere else, except on my lips. On wiki there is a list of other things you can use, like coconut oil/butter to soothe chapped lips, or even honey. I would also try and cut back on the usage of chapstick just because, just from my own personal experience, when I use my chapstick too often i end up with more of a chapped lip if i forget my chapstick at home or i just don't have it with me.

Avatar f tn Extreme care must be taken to avoid pregnancy in female patients and in female partners of male patients. Ribavirin causes hemolytic anemia. The anemia associated with REBETOL therapy may result in a worsening of cardiac disease. Ribavirin is genotoxic and mutagenic and should be considered a potential carcinogen. (See REBETOL package insert for additional information and other warnings)." Can a warning be any more dramatic then that?
Avatar n tn I know that this sounds gross but if any of you out there have had this problem you know how embarrassing it can be. I was told that I had a possible fistula between my colon and vagina. I went in for a test and my gyn inserted some blue dye into my rectum then a tampon in my vagina. I left the office and came back in 1 hour. She took out the tampon and there was no blue dye. So she said no fistula between the colon and vagina. So I went home and went to the bathroom.
Avatar n tn I am thinking about getting my thyroid checked agian (my mother had hypothyroid) and this may be a symptom of the early stages... not sure though... If anyone has any ideas please let me know..
Avatar n tn I am in the acute stages of oxy withdrawal and therefore haven't had the time to read all the responses above, so forgive me if I am repeating what other people have already said. . . probably more eloquently and wisely than I am about to. . . That said. . . I am a therapist in an inner city mental health clinic, and work with folks with all sorts of addictions. We are seeing more and more self mutilators:folks who cut, burn or otherwise harm their own bodies.
