Brief Answer:
Brush your teeth twice each day.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

One of the most common causes of your symptoms is the buildup of plaque on your teeth which can lead to inflamed gums (gingivitis).
Also brushing too hard or hormonal changes during pregnancy (second and third month of pregnancy) can cause bleeding.

I suggest you to make an appointment with your dentist for plaque removal. Try to visit your dentist at least once a year. Use soft toothbrush.

Please note that it is very important to check up your gums because gingivitis can progress to periodontitis and can cause you to lose teeth in the future.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Brief Answer:
bleeding gums may indicate pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Gums are more likely to bleed during pregnancy because of hormonal changes when they are more sensitive to the bacteria in plaque. It typically occurs in second/ third month of pregnancy but it can occurs earlier. So if you have bleeding gums and breast tenderness and you were trying for a baby you may be pregnant.

Brief Answer:
Progesterone can cause gum bleeding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I guess you meant depo-provera. It contains progesterone which increases the blood flow to the gums and can cause bleeding.

Brief Answer:
You do not have to be worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

A baby is safe in the womb. Giving a hug or squeezing will not harm it.

Uterus is a very strong muscle which together with pubic bone and spinal cord provides protection so you do not have to be worry.

Why is it that when i get hungry. My stomach only growls on the left side and not the right. Is that suppose to happen
doctor
Answered by Dr. Urszula Stanko (2 hours later)
Brief Answer:
Stomach is located on the left side.

Detailed Answer:

It is absolutely normal that you hear growls on the left side. This is because stomach is located on the left side of the upper abdomen. You can not hear it on the right side.

Best regards.

Brief Answer:
You should make an ultrasound.

Detailed Answer:

There are some options like he squeezed you to hard or you may have very sensitive skin in this area. But to be sure that everything is all right I suggest you to make an abdominal ultrasound to rule out serious conditions.
