I had a HIV Rapid Test at the Emergency Room 20 days after unprotected sex and a HIV anitbody test 8 weeks and a day (57 days) and they both came back negative. What are my chances of being truly HIV negative?
I lost my temper and I got very nervous and was shouting all the time. It was for the first time to reach this kind of anger.
After few hours, I calmed down tried to get some sleep, but I am having deep pain between my chest and pain in my teeth and some pain on my shoulder ! I took panadol followed by cataflam 50 mg ? What do you diagnose what is happening to me ! Do I need to go to the hospital!?
I am on birth control (tricyclen) and am currently taking Augmentin for UTI. I began having some spotting mid cycle then my normal period while on the placebo week. I finish the Augmentin tomorrow and begin my new pill pack on Sunday. My doctor told me I wouldn't need a backup method while on Augmentin, I would only need one if I experienced nausea or diarrhea, which I have not.
My husband and I had sex this morning, no condoms.My period has ended and I begin my new pill pack on Sunday. What are the odds that my pill could have been affected by the Augmentin? Is it safe to say that a backup method wasn't needed? Will I be fully protected again once I start my new pill pack? Information on this subject seems to be so varied from person to person it's hard to understand.
I've had diarrhea most of the afternoon and night with app. 37.6 fever. I think I went to the bathroom over 20 times. Today I feel better, the fever dropped to 36.8 and sometimes 37 and I went to the bathroom 2 times only. I went to the doctor (I'm in Uganda on mission) they did a blood test and stool analysis and told me its a bacterial infection (they didn't assert which bacteria as the test is generic) they prescribed Levoday 500mg 1 tablet per day for 5 days. I avoid taking antibiotics if not absolutely necessary so I wanted to check whether I need to take them, or should I wait a while to see if things are going to be resolved without antibiotics.
Hello, My son is 3 years and 4 months old. Since the age of 1 he has very yellowy skin. I know he does not have jaundice (as no yellowing of eyes) but what I do know is that by having only 3 little pieces of sweetcorn or 3 peas his skin goes yellow. I can understand that if you have excess carotene in your diet this can happen which is carotenemia. But he does not. Only with a minimal amount he gets this - what could this be? He has hypermobility and allergies.
I was like a month pregnant and they had did a paptest on me and noticed it and froze it off and nothing was said further and it never came back during my pregnancy or my delivery. I delivered have a vaginal delivery no problem had one stich and I don't have any discomfort or itching I don't ever notice it really but I know that it's there it does itch sometimes but very rarely... and I have read that you aren't suppose to do that if you had herpes so that made me a little bit nervous. How do i tell the difference between a wart and a skin tag? Also i do have hemorrhoids still from my pregnancy that was 2 and half years ago that I wish was gone but it could be one of those? I have attached a couple more pictures, hopefully you'll be able to see it more clearly. Thank you so much for all your information, it's defiantly making me feel alot better.
Dear Doctor, Recently I read about how rabies can incubate silently in animals and humans and it was traumatizing information. Particularly that it can incubate in humans for years. Since, I've been having obsessive compulsive thoughts about being rabid that I cannot shake off. I have played and dealt with many cats growing up, with many of them living outside of our house in a green, mountainous area. Although I can not recall any cat showing even minor symptoms of being rabid, I cannot help but worry that I somehow caught the disease silently from a carrier and it is incubating inside of me. The internet sources state that the virus can be transmitted if it is incubating inside of the cat and it can be in the salivary glands with no noticeable symptoms. I have not been bitten by cats outside of playful interactions and never punctured the skin, however I worry that maybe a contaminated hand of mine could have rubbed my eye and I could've caught the disease or that the virus could have made its way through my skin from a hard playful bite.?
Also, is there a test I can do to put this issue behind me and get my mind to ease??
I have been managing my cholesterol using diet, exersise, and natural substances. I have a local doctor that I have consulted in the past and have tried a veriety of statin drugs that I have had side effects with including Crestor, and provastatin. Since Lipitor has gone generic, I would like to try a 10mg dose and test my results with a local low cost lab service. I don't want to visit my local doctor just to pay $170 for him to write a prescription. Can I get an internet doctor to write the script? My local pharmacy has FREE atorvistatin.
