Question: I am 25 weeks pregnant now and this is second pregnancy. I got 3yrs 3months old son. After my 1st Delivery I conceived in month of April 2013 where i got aborted in month of May'13 but immediately after 15 to 20 days i conceived again and now i am continuing as i had a concern if i get aborted intentionally then my health may get effected. Doctor has advised me to take following medicines during my pregnancy. Folomega, Calcimax, Evion, Argiplus and iron tablet(i dont remember the name). I am taking these medicines regularly but missing on calcimax. In my first pregnancy fluid was less thus got c-section done. But this time my boby is not supporting me i am getting very weak and no stamina at all. Give me some solution for this. When i asked doctor she says rest but i have to go to work. Kindly suggest. PS: I am not able to drink milk at all and not able to take care of myself as i used to before.

Brief Answer: Right Treatment Detailed Answer: Hi, You are under right treatment and there is nothing to worry. Please get blood test to check for anemia. If its normal then there is nothing to worry about. You may feel vomiting and hence may not be possible to have certain foods. The medicines you are taking are good enough and calcium can be started at a later date. You can stop folomega now as you are taking iron tablet. You may feel weakness. Its common. Take balanced diet, regular walk. You will be fine. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Brief Answer: Not necessary Detailed Answer: Hi, Folic acid is needed in initial part of pregnancy. Iron tablets are enough for now. Calcium is needed in small amounts. Not drinking milk is not very much necessary. Regards, Dr.Mahesh Koregol

Thanks Dr. XXXXXXX Right now i am using Calcimax 500. When do u suggest me to start using it as i am not taking it regularly now as i am missing on this one medicine. Is there any harm if i take Folic acid and iron tablets together? Coz its almost one month i am taking these both tablets with other medicines.

Brief Answer: Necessary medicines only Detailed Answer: Hi, Take the calcium suppliments on alternate days now. You can miss it now. You can start taking daily after 28 weeks. There is no harm in taking folic acid. I feel you may not like too many medicines especially when folic acid is not necessary now. Regards.

I have hemorrhoids .I just delivered baby 2 months back and since then I have it. I was constipated in my thrid trimester. I was on high dose of Iron tablets in my last trimester as I was diagonised with less heamoglobin. I have rectal pain after I am done with BM. It remains for 2-4 hours. May be 2 times I had to take pain killer. I am drinking metamucil thrice a day( as per instruction on the box). Is there any home remedy??

My son aged 15 was I believe misdiagnosed with ulceraive colitis in February. His dioreahha episode began after sitting in a unventilated room for long hours next to a window with black mould and putting on the airconditioning.The reason i disagree with this diagnosis is that after a while in hospital recieving blood transplant and medication he did not recover and had another episode in July when again he used airconditioning to cool down, He then went to a specialist in Ankara Turkey where they discovered his medication was causing problems with his pancreas and kidneys and immediatly stopped it. there he did not adhere to any kind of diet he just began to eat and walk as much as his strength would allow. After 10 days hte diarehha disappeared and the doctor gave him Iron supplements to help his anemia . A few weeks ago the weather turned cold. Again he used the airconditioning. Again he began to get dioreahha began geting slight pains in his stomach and going to the lavatory about once every hour and was running a slight temperature . He became afraid to eat has got a few red patched on his legs maybe due to dehydration and malnutrition . He is currently in hospital where a specialist who helped a friend in a similar condition has given him antibiotics along with vitamins for a stomach infection. So could my son be a victim of black mould? it looks that way to me
