Hi,
Tab Dufaston is safe so do not worry.
It is early to feel baby but other signs may be present or may not.
You can go to your and ultra sound can be done,it is safe and you can be satisfied and as you are 38 years I can understand your worry.

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.



- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?
