If you were my patient I would advise you that Weight Watchers has the best weight loss program that I know of. Their program is comprehensive and lif changing so that you don't gain the weight right back again.
I'm sure you will get lots of helpful responses in the forum too, but consider
giving them a try!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to ask your provider if he/she has any vitamin samples. There are lots of different options including liquid and gummies. There are also vanilla flavored vitamins that are chewable. Because there are so many options it is hard to list then here--you may need to try a few different kinds. Personally I go for ...
If your girlfriend was my patient, I would advise her that she is probably pretty safe--there is debate about whether there actually is sperm in the pre-ejaculate fluid or not. Some studies cast doubt on that theory, althought it is best to always use a condom. Also, if she had just finished her period, the emergency contraception should be effective, ...
If you were my patient, I would advise you to do a pregnancy test, although the chances are pretty low if you had a tubal ligation that long ago.
If the test is positive you should contact your doctor ASAP. IF it is negative, you may just have failed to ovulate this cycle and therefore had a really light period-this is very common and nothing to worry ...
If you were my patient, I would advise you that typically exercise doesn't affect a woman's cycle much unless she is excercising ALOT--such a marathon runners or professional ballerinas might do.
Stress can affect the cycle, so if your stress level is improved by exercise, that could affect your cycle somewhat.
If your periods are very irregu...
If you were my patient, I would have to say that unfortunately, yes, it is quite common for women to gain significant amounts of weight at around that age range. It could be related to the pill, or it might have happened even without it. Exercise and diet will be crucial to maintain or lose some weight. You could discontinue the pill and see if you fe...
The GOOD news about the IUD is that it should
last you until 2018 if all goes well. The insertion can be unpleasant, unfortunately. If you were my patient, I would advise you to try Aleve and if that doesn't work, you may wish to call your provider because, he/she may be able to give you a mild narcotic pain reliever to get you through the first f...
If you were my patient, I would ask you to come to see me in my office. Having an actual appointment will save you lots of time and money! There are lots of possibilities including infection of the bone. The ER is not really a good place to work up a chronic problem. They will probably give you Ibuprofen and send you home. I DO think you should be ev...
If you were my patient, I would check your pregnancy hormone level right now and then repeat it in 48 hours. Depending upon what the value is, I would do an ultrasound as soon as possible to determine the location of the pregnancy.
I would also ask you questions about other reasons fo abdomeinal pain such as kidney/bladder infection or stones, or gallsto...
If you were my patient, I would advise you that I'm not sure there is a "normal" protocol for monitoring women with positive parvovirus antibodies. The good news is that the most worriesome time to have parvo during pregnancy is before 20 weeks, so you missed that most worriesome window. If you were my patient, I would work with a perinato...
