i have suffered with telogem effluviam which is hair shedding. i believe that it's been through stress related issues. the stress has decreased and the hair is starting to grow back. however i now have a tooth infection and have been prescribed anitbiotics amoxicillin and co-codomaol pain relief. i am natrually concerned that these drugs plus the infection might cause further hair loss. can you please put my mind at rest. maybe i am being over anxious because this has been a very traumatic time for me.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
