Question: Hello, I am pregnant, having my first, I don't have any medical problems at all, suffer from nothing. I found out I was pregnant and when to the doctor to confirm. While I was there, he done a scan and smear, priscribed me duphaston to take 3x a day. He never done any blood test is this normal. I read it's suppose to help keep the body from rejecting the pregnancy but I started spotting/ bleeding last night. Is this normal should I continue on the tablets ? I take folic acid and multi vitamins. It's a lot to take when I am used to taking nothing and being healthy... Thanks in Advance

Brief Answer:
Continue medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about pregnancy.

Following is my reply:

1) Folic acid is necessary to prevent any abnormalities in baby that are likely to happen and can be prevented with folic acid tablets.

2) Duphaston will help to prevent abortion hence continue.

3) Since there is bleeding now it is advisable to continue the medicines. No other problems.

4) Blood tests are not required as of now. Concentration should be to reduce the bleeding.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Regards

Brief Answer:
Take rest and medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is the most crucial part of early pregnancy where baby gets aborted. I suggest you take complete rest and continue medicines. Hope for the bleeding to reduce.

No need to rush to doctor for this now.

Hello doctor, I m 37 and into IT field, do not eat meat, eggs , eat food. No smoking and alcohol habits. I ve been going through right hand side pain which starts 1 inch above belly and continues 2 inch below. I do not have pain on the LHS. This pain is whole day, before and after eating, before and after nature call. Have tried all antacides, visited many doctors and clinics. This is 15 th year of this cause and no medicine has given me relief. I have lot of fatigue in whole body. At times I feel like dropping spoon from my hand. My forehead is always heavy with cold and eyes remain redish and pale whole day. the hunger is absolutely abnormal and there is nautia whole day. The nature call is abnormal with gastritis . It also pains in the portion of pant belt in horizontal direction but thats not constant. Day by day my signature is getting changed and I ve lost flow in the writing. Generally there is neck and back pain due to fatigue. The sleep is highly unstable although I was known for sleeping long hours during my collage days. I haven t lost weight but it never increases. After closing eyes, I feel pressure in the forehead. In Sept 2011, I started having bad sight while looking at a projector in conference room. I keep sneezing but with dry cold. In general the feeling can be specified as someone is sucking me like taking the air off the baloon. The stomoch remains flat even after taking good amount of food and is generally very tight. Previously Barium, gastroentrological test are done with normal results.
