Question: I just found out today that I am pregnant. I think I may be 6 weeks. My periods are not regular so I was not concerned and last week I had an endoscopy without realising I was pregnant. Could this cause any issues? I have also had lovan and zoton during this time. On a couple of occassions I had inderal and 5mg of valium for anxiety. These all concern me now that I realise I am pregnant.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The endoscopic procedure and the medicines you have taken do not have any noticeable effect in the growing baby since you have taken these only occasionally. Any harm to the baby is not likely.
If the ultrasound scan shows a normal viable pregnancy then I don't think there is much to be worried about. You will need to discuss about the further dosage schedule of these medicines with your gynecologist in view of pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hi Doctor

I have had problems with my stools, for over 4 mths now, i have had No Solid stools at all, my stools start off as a soft consistency and end with an extra soft consistency, many times runny. also it is very hard to clean from my behind, i have to use about 3/4 of a roll of toilet paper each time I go, plus wet wipes to clean myself, i have been going to the toilet between 1-3 times each day, many times it comes out with great force and diarrhoea like, at times i have only just reached the toilet , or do not managed to make the toilet in time, the stool itself look’s like it has lots of extra intestinal fluid at the end, and is of a much lighter colour, it also has a distinct extra strong terrible smell, but not the type of smell the you would associate with a Natural stool.

I have a generally Good diet.

I am asking for you advise over the internet because of two main reasons ( One It is very very embarrassing, And two I have noticed that I have started to loose some weight over the past 4-5 weeks.

Do I still leave it and see if it finally stops ? which was what I was hopping for.

Also; do you have any idea of what this “Could “ be ? Or what “Could” be causing it ?



My very brief medical history ( I am a Male, 49 yrs old ). “On and off” over the last 5 years I have had blood burst out from my behind which smothers the whole toilet ( I have No haemorrhoids And have Never had haemorrhoids ) I have also had bouts of Soft black tar like stools which are almost impossible to wipe off from my behind ( I was told by my GP this was probably blood in my stool ) I also had constipation in the early stages of my toilet problems, But I did not pursue it any further because of the embarrassment.



I have been under a neurologist for a 7year history of ridged muscles / stiff joints / jerks / tremor and related excessive pain Etc, The muscle problem has distorted some of my trunk bones, ( Condition is assumed to be Stiff person Syndrome ) Or another related autoimmune condition. I also have server damage between cervical spine joints in neck between ( C5 / C6 ) & ( C6 / C7 ) Which is an early onset of an arthritic condition, I have just had another M.R.I neck, 3 years after my first Neck M.R.I, Still waiting for comparison update, Plus all in all I started having breathing problems 3 years ago ( So I stopped smoking 2 ½ Years ago ) But over the 3 years my breathing has got much worse And I have now also been diagnosed With a C.O.P.D ( Due to something about 74% lung capacity and a restrictive problem due to no flexibility within my airways, so I take one Spiriva 18 mg capsule via an inhaler Each day, but it does not help much, I I had an 8 X Dosage test with a Ventolin pump on a machine under test conditions, but the results showed it did not help my breathing at all.

Meds; that I have been taken and constantly reviewed and adjusted by my Neurologist are; Diazepam / Phenytoin / Pregabalin / Ibuprofen / Amitriptyline at night ( Amitriptyline at night ,Very low dosage to help with night time nerve pain) I have been on these meds for some time, I have had no change in meds over the last 12 mths, So I don’t think they are contributing factor to the change in my toilet stool’s !

Kind regards
