Brief Answer: FOLLOW THE GUIDELINE. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us on Healthcare Magic. According to your information, toothache (pain in tooth) and cavity formation occur due to bacterial infection which spreads to adjacent tooth also. Good oral health care is most important during pregnancy period. Regular dental cleaning and periodic check ups are must to avoid oral infections that can affect the fetus, such as gingivitis and periodontal disease. 2nd trimester is the best time for treatment to minimize dental infection. You must consult with DENTIST for proper guidance regarding this. 1) Safe antibiotic like combined Ampicillin & Cloxacillin (AMPILOX) or Amoxicillin & clavulanic acid (CLAVAM) thrice daily can be given to reduce the spreading of infection. 2) Regular mouth wash with CHLORHEXIDINE (anti-plaque fluoride based) 2 to 3 times is mandatory for maintaining oral & dental hygiene. PREVENTION : 1) Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily after meals when possible. 2) During morning sickness or vomiting, you must rinse your mouth with water, brush without toothpaste and after that anti-plaque fluoride mouthwash. 3) Take well-balanced diet with plenty of vitamin C and B12. Drink more water or juice for better circulation. Hope, I have clarified all things and guided you properly. Let me know if you need any clarification. Wish your good health and take care yourself.

I took a HPT 5 days before my expected period. I tested the next day and it was negative. My breasts are usually sore about a week to a week 1/2 before my period. They didn't start getting extremely sore until today. My period is due Sunday. I have three children and have had many symptoms of pregnancy including milky white discharge without smell, very tired and lethargic, nausea and some vomiting sensitivity to certain smells and my breasts are aching. Although a lot of these symptoms I'm having are usually pre menstrual symptoms, could I be pregnant?

Hello, I have been very nauseated the past 4 days. I have only gotten sick a couple times. I have had headaches and when I stand up my heart will race and i get kind of shakey. My stomach always hurts and seems to more after I eat something. My appetite is gone. I noticed that i started having a brownish discharge on tuesday. I also think I got bite by a spider on the back of my left leg right under my butt. I have been putting hydrocortisone cream on it which has been helping but I wasn t sure if that could be a factor of me feeling sick or of there is a chance of pregnancy.
