Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

First you need to fully recover from the disease, then you can proceed to have child...
IF you try to conceive before total cure, then during pregnancy it will end up in abortion.. Also Epstein Barr virus can lead to congenital anamalies.. so better get cured and then plan for next pregnancy...

Female, 38, Married, 3 children (8,6 & 3). Started suffering depressive symptoms are puberty. Severe lack of energy (I can sleep, though not well, anywhere at any time), lack of concentration and lack of interest in anything that I would once consider enjoyable. I ve also suffered optical migranes that can partially to totally blind me since that age. Chronic neck and upper back pain has been an issue since early 20 s (trying to remember back that far). I ve had maybe 4 severe depressive incidents where staying in bed, and avoiding, even those I love, lasted about a week or two at a time, since puberty. Recent symptoms: My hair is becoming dry, coarse and thin. I ve noticed I m losing a lot of hair daily. My skin, espically upper arms, lower face and upper neck are so dry they feel scaley. Joint pain , especially in my hands, wrists, shoulders and knees. I have had night sweats where I ve obviously kicked some of my bed covers off because I m hot, but wake up shivering from being wet and cold. I ve also had a terrible outbreat of cold sores on my lips. Three seperate blistered areas on my upper and lower lip. My youngest child was born on 5/22/07. The day I gave birth to her I weighed 217lbs. Today I weigh 253 lbs and have gained about 20 lbs of that in the last two months and continue to gain weight at about 2 lbs a week, even though I ve started WeightWatcher s and quit smoking pot and munching at night. I seriously had been starving myself during the day so I could pig out at night. But when I noticed the weight gain, I quit. But I keep gaining!!! I m on 40 mg of prozac, 60mg of mythelin, 5mg abilify, and take 12.5 mg of Zolpedim CR to get a decent sleep. I take a daily vitimin and fish oil as well. My last thyroid blood test was on 3/24/09. My T4, Free was 1.3ng/dL, TSH 3rd Generation .39 L mIU/L, and T3, Free was 292pg/dL. My pregnancies were blissfull.Is fatness reason m not pregnant? I had virtually no symptoms at all while pregnant. I even lost weight and gave birth to a 7lb 12 oz baby. Anyone have a clue what is wrong with me?

Hi - I had my abortion 10 years before. I had to abort as I was in college then. Now I have been married with a different guy and planning for a baby. Will that abortion affect anyway? I don t want my husband to know about my past abortion. Will he come to know during our visits to the doctor? Also I used to do skipping, jumping and yoga 2 years after my abortion. Is there any possibility to have a low uterus for the same? I am asking this as sometimes I feel something is coming out from my vagina but when I insert my finger I feel there is actually nothing coming out. I have my periods regularly though. Please help.

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

hi I have a question, my husband has a rash on the back of his neck that just started out real small... he thought it was a pimple at 1st, he scratched it and he said it kinda stung a little and was sore right at 1st, well he didnt think much of it then the following day he ended up getting more spots and he said that they oozed out with stuff when he went to scratch them or rub them.. hes never had this before... we are wondering if it could be shingles or possibly something else that might be contagious.. nobody else has this in our household except for him... we arent sure what it is

could you tell me your input please,,, thanks!
