Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum


mental and physical defects that can occur in the fetus when a woman drinks or consumes alcohol during pregnancy. The timing as well as frequency of alcohol consumption during pregnancy are major risk factors of a child developing defects . , there are no well established guidelines for safe levels of alcohol during pregnancy. So stop it as early as possible

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?
