My husband just received his smallpox vaccine a part of his pre deployment checklist. A part of our personal pre deployment checklist is trying to get pregnant. I had my iud removed a couple weeks ago and my husband hasn t even thought of condoms since we first dated some 2 years ago. Can I go ahead and try to get pregnant? He has been following all precautions for the post care.

Hi, I was in the military and was given the anthrax vaccine and smallpox vaccine . During the deployment we were not allowed to drink alcohol, but upon returning I found that after one drink I would get a headache and eventually vomit . I was not the only one this happened to, and was told it may be a side effect of the anthrax vaccine. Eight years later this is still the case. Is this even possible that it is a side effect, and if so does it mean that something larger may occur from it.
