Avatar m tn So, you will die, and so will I. It is only that one of us will die earlier, and it can as well be me. You are probably at an advantageous situation in that you know to a reasonably certain extent why and how you will de. You can probably set your things right. The purpose of every living thing is to ultimately reproduce and leave some of its genes behind. But I believe that each child deserves to have both parents, for as long as possible.
Avatar m tn Hey guy, we ALL have a LOT of apprehension and anxiety about this DCM thing (and of course, ED!!!!) but you need to somebody to look you straight in the eye like they finally did with me and say "You're NOT going to die, this is serious BUT manageable!!!"

Avatar m tn Yes, 0.808 would be considered normal for the test that was ordered. Unfortunately, that test is very outdated and really should never be ordered. what it means is that the lab should analyze TSH and if that's in range, they should do nothing further, but if TSH is out of range, they should analyze Free T4...

Avatar n tn we were so, so happy that it worked, but I kepted feeling that there was something wrong. Sure enough 4 days later I felt wet and had to run to the toilet. I had started to bleed, not a brownish but pink/red colour. I was so worried & just started to rest up on my bed. Called the clinic and they said that this was normal & that I should take things easy & not too stress.

Avatar n tn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_reproduction A pregnancy is possible ONLY if semen is ejaculated or deposited into the vagina. The vagina IS NOT connected to the anus in any way, and serve completely different functions which I assume you know.

Avatar f tn There is weight gain and an imbalance of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone and insulin all of which work together to regulate our metabolism and appetite. Your gynecologist may prescribe you Clomiphene.It is an ovulation inducing drug.

It varies woman to woman.
Avatar n tn I would really appreciate the knowledge because we have no support groups where we are and we are going on one and a half years since my husbands accident.

Avatar m tn I made an appointment with a Urologist a couple weeks ago because I have been having issues with maintaining an erection and one of the things that the doctor did was take some blood to check my testosterone levels. I am involved in a committed relationship and it has taken a tole on both of us for months. Back in 2007 I took testosterone (Steroids) for about 6-8 weeks. My testosterone level came back as 287 which is low for a man of any age.
Avatar n tn I am extremely depressed and am suffering with hypothyroidism, low testosterone, too much estrogen, high cholesterol and low Vitamin D what is wrong with me? I originally thought that everything here is linked to depression from stress and anxiety so I started taking Lexapro for the depression.

Avatar n tn My urologist tested my testosterone only, which he concluded was normal, and said he expected my situation to improve. Well, it has not, and it is causing me major stress. I first began having problems about a year ago soon after a breakup. Since then, I have not felt right. My level of sexuality plummeted, and I simply don't know what to do. Have there been any traumatic occurrences lately in your life?
Avatar m tn With all the results you have, I hate to ask, but could you just post your TSH Free T3 and Free T4 and include the reference ranges provided for each? Ranges vary fron lab to lab, that is why they are needed to see how you are with your thyroid, as far as Testosterone is concerned, it normally does not affect the thyroid levels.
Avatar f tn m really worried about it! And apparently causes permanent reproduction damage if not checked!!?
