Brief Answer: Dont worry Detailed Answer: Hi, Low lying placenta of 2.77 cms away from internal os is not to be worried. Fibroid is also not a cause of worry. Try to avoid journey in pregnancy as much as possible since journey is not advisable in pregnancy. Even if it is compulsory to travel, Dont lift luggage or heavy weight and book lower birth in train. There is separate lower XXXXXXX quota for pregnant woman travelling in train. Progesterone injection is not necessary. Dont take. Let me know if you have any more doubts. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Brief Answer: ! AC Detailed Answer: Hi, Placenta and fibroid are not a problem. Hopefully, nothing will happen by train journey. Travelling for long hours is not advisable in pregnancy. Keep walking in between. Travelling by 1 AC is better. Go with members of family who is capable of taking you to hospital to any of stations on the way. There is no need of taking any medicines. Injection progesterone can be taken before travel which makes no difference hence not compulsory or needed. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Brief Answer: Long journeys not good Detailed Answer: Hi, I said one thing clearly that it is not advisable to travel for such long duration in train or or flight or bus. Travel only if there is no alternative. Long journeys are not safe in pregnancy. Placenta and fibroid are not a problem. Pregnant women are prone for blood clot formation in legs and early pains in long journeys. Thats the reason i advised you to avoid train journey now. Climbing stairs, working at home or walking daily is not a problem. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

I have been having random problems lately but have just pushed it off as hormonal changes and not thought anything about it until recently. I m 20 years old and my moods have been through the roof. I can be laughing and extremely happy one day and biting someone s head off the next. This has all occurred recently. I m not bipolar, etc. My period was 9 days late this month and lighter than normal. Its usually extremely heavy. It ended Friday and yesterday I ended up in the ER with extreme tachycardia and tingling in both arms with 3 near-syncope episodes. Doctors pushed it off as anxiety yet I ve been out of school for 2 months and under zero stress. I ve also gained 30 pounds in the last 6 weeks and i exercise and eat healthy CONSTANTLY. I know this all sounds random but I know there is something going on. Thyroid levels are perfect so I m leaning toward PCOS or low progesterone. Any suggestions or thoughts as to whats going on?

I just want to know that how long does the medicine stay in the body and if they will be able to find out if I took the contraceptive medicine or not through a blood test?
