  • How long after stopping the depo shot does it usually take to get pregnant?

    I've been on the shot for not even a year yet and I've decided to stop taking them because of the side effects mostly but was wandering if I could get pregnant right away or if it takes a while. I've read it could take 18 months sometimes. My periods haven't stopped completely since I've been taking the shot. We're not necessarily trying to get pregnant but if we did we would be really happy. We already have 2 children, ages 5, and 14 months. If anybody has had experience with the depo shot and getting pregnant, please help!

  • Could I be pregnant?

    So, I'm wandering the possibility of pregnancy on the depo shot. I've been on the shot since August of 2014 and I had some issues at first with real heavy bleeding. But since getting the 2 I've gotten this year, my periods tapered y and stopped! So I haven't had a period in over a month, but I've been feeling nauseous and having headaches and cramping, then last night started spotting what looks like old blood. Is it possible that the shot failed?

  • Has anyone ever taken zonegran and breastfed?

    I have epilepsy and recently had a baby, he's 6 weeks old. I had been on Zonegran before I got pregnant and it was helping my sezuires. I had been breastfeeding my little boy for 5 weeks when I started having the sezuires again. Its very important to me to breastfeed at least some, even if I have to supplement a little. I wanted to see if anybody else had ever taken this medication and breastfed and if it had any affects on the baby. Thanks

  • How long do I have to wait before I can let my dog back outside?

    Ok, so I recently had my female shepherd/lab mix spayed, on Tuesday the 11th. I had her a place fixed in my laundry room, large cage, etc. They told me that she was in heat when I went to pick her up after the surgery, so I was wandering how long do I have to wait before I can let her back out again. She's a really active dog, and she's big, not really a house dog. I know she needed to be kept clean and dry for at least a week if she had not been in heat, but since she was, how long do I need to wait, I mean, she's been spayed, she can't get pregnant...

  • Is it possible that I am pregnant?

    Ok, so my husband is military, and we don't see each other that much, but we spent last weekend together. (May 3-5). Ok, I started my period on Tuesday April 30th, but was done before I met up with my husband on Friday. My cycles are very irregular, and are usually shorter than normal, like 22-24 days long. I'm asking this because I've been getting really nauseous everyday, and today I had really bad cramps in my abdomen, exactly like I did right before I found out I was expecting our daughter. Is it possible that I ovulated early, like right after my period and now I'm pregnant. The suspense is killing me, and I'm not supposed to start my next period for another week, so I just wanted to see if I could get some answers.

  • how do you calm a really hyper dog down?

    Recently I took in a dog that I'm pretty sure somebody dumped out. She's really sweet and smart, however she is so hyper that I can barely get to my car without being attacked. I'm pretty sure she's a German shepherd/lab mix and she's still just a puppy, 1 year old or less. I have a 3 year old daughter that loves to play outside but can't because the dog goes crazy! She's not aggressive in the least bit but she weighs 45 lbs. and for a 3 year old little girl that's a big scary dog. I play fetch with her as much I can, hoping to get some of the energy out, is there anything else I can do that will mellow her out some?

  • What could be wrong with my central AC?

    So, its just started to get a little warm outside and I had been just raising the windows and turning on fans but today it was in the 80's so I decided to turn on the central AC, it came on and air was blowing from the vents but its not cold air. My unit is about 11 years old, I had a brand new compressor put on it about 2 years ago and at the end of last summer (August) I had my unit filled up with Freon because apparently there was a leak which was also fixed, it worked fine after that. This is the first time I have turned it on since last year and its not working. Is there something that needs to be reset on it or could something be wrong. I feel like I've put a lot of money into this unit already and really don't wanna have to put anymore unless its absolutely necessary. Please help!

  • what is the best way to potty train a 2 year old girl/?

    My little girl is very smart, and she will go to the potty, but still wets her pull-up or panties. She will pee pee in her pull-up and then tell me that she has to go potty. I have tried candy, and stickers which she loves, and I even tried not putting a pull-up on her and letting her wear training panties thinking she wouldn't like being wet so she would want to go. Is there anything else I can do to make her want to go potty? Please Help!!!!

  • is it possible that I am pregnant? (a little crazy)?

    Okay, so I had a period that started on June 22, normal 5 day period. Went to see my husband, who is a Marine the week of the 4th, should have been my fertile time. My period was due on the 21st of July, but came a few days early on the 18th, it was like a normal period for the most part, but I didn't bleed as heavy as usual, it was moderate. I didn't suspect anything cause I was pretty sure that was my period for the month, and I had not felt any different. But for the past week, I get sick every morning, and have thrown up a couple of times, again just thought it was some crazy something. But now, I'm getting headaches along with the sickness, going to the bathroom like every 10 minutes and my lower back is killing me. I have a daughter so I know what I should feel like, and maybe a little I do feel like I did in the beginning with her, but something is different. PLEASE HELP!

  • what to do for fleas in the house and on the dog?

    So, I have tried everything. In my house I have sprinkled salt on the carpet, and I have vacummed everyday for the past 2 weeks. I used 2 flea bombs in my house and last week I even got pest control to come and spray and not only is my dog still infested but I just found 2 fleas on me and they were not sick either. I called the pest control people and they said it was normal to still see them but that the poison was still working anyway, I just think its crazy that you pay so much to have that done and it doesn't work right away. He sprayed inside and out of my house so there should not be any outside either. My poor dog is suffering with them! I have tried bathing him in flea and tick shampoo, washing him in dawn dish liquid and I even used vinegar on him. He has also been treated twice, once with K9 Advantix and once with a store brand treatment and nothing. I'm really worried about him. We get paid in a few days, I'm gonna try to either take him to the vet or order him some Capstar and some more treatment. But is there anything else I can do in the meantime, for my dog and for my house?

  • Please help, can't get rid of fleas!?

    Okay, so my indoor dog has had fleas for several weeks now! I have treated him 3 times, bombed the house with 2 bombs and sprayed flea killer outside and he still has fleas on him. I have bathed him in Dawn, bought a flea comb today and it works pretty good, but there's so many that it only gives him temporary relief. His skin is dry and flaky because I have bathed him so much in so many different things, he's miserable! I don't have a lot of money to spend on him right now cause I'm about to go see my husband for a week who is based in another state. Please Help!!!!

  • how do you get rid of fleas?

    I realized about a month ago that my inside dog had fleas really bad, so I bathed him, and put K-9 advantix on him, supposed to be a prevenative too. 2 weeks later I was still seeing them and he is just miserable from them so I bathed him and treated him again, this time with some stuff I bought at Walmart. I bought a Raid flea bomb to use in my house cause I was afraid that they might have hatched out, I haven't used it yet cause its such a chore, and I have a 2 year old daughter! However, I am wandering why neither treatment seemed to help him, I mean they are supposed to last for a month, and 1 of them hasn't even been on for 2 weeks. I also have an outdoor cat, that I have treated and he too has fleas on him still. Please help!

  • Could I still be pregnant?

    Ok, so I had mirena removed on the 19th of April, and my period was due then and it started 2 days later, and I had a normal period. My cycles are usually 30 days long so I should have started yesterday, but didn't. My husband is military and was home the week of the 6th-11th(should have been fertile that week) and I'm pretty sure I was ovulating then. I waited until yesterday to test when my period didn't come and the test was negative. But I've been getting headaches, and waking up sick, and my bb's are so sore and huge. Is it possible I ovulated later in that week and it pushed the day my period was supposed to come up a few days? Is there a possibility that I could still be pregnant?

  • Do you think I could be pregnant?

    I just had my mirena removed a month ago tomorrow, I had a normal period the whole time I had it in, and it was time for me to start my period when it was removed and I did 2 days later. My husband is in the military and was home last week, during what should have been my fertile time, I had all the symtoms that I was ovulating, so I'm pretty sure I did. We had sex on one of my most fertile days and again after that. I'm supposed to get my period Monday (the 21st), I've already bought a hpt with 3 in the box, because I've been having some light cramping, and getting sick every day. Maybe its just me thinking about it all the time. But I've got a pretty good chance of being pregnant, but is it possible to get pregnant that soon after having Mirena removed?

  • Could I really be pregnant?

    So, I've had Mirena IUD for almost a year now, and even though its supposed to stop your periods for the most part, I have still been having a normal 28-30 day cycle, and I start my period at the same time every month. I've been feeling VERY quesy, and have thrown up once, I'm having really bad headaches, and peeing A LOT, just like I did with my daughter. My period was supposed to start yesterday, but hasn't come yet, and I'm wondering if I'm pregnant or if its just the Mirena. I'm really scared to take a test, and I'm scared to talk to anybody about it because I don't want my family to think I am crazy. Also I have a dr.'s appt. tomorrow to have the mirena removed because its been giving me some trouble and I just don't feel right about keeping it. Please help!

  • What's the possibility of pregnancy?

    So, I have Mirena IUD, June will be a year since I've had it. I've been having some complications with it so I'm going this week to have it removed. I still have a normal cycle every month and I start period at the time every month no matter what so that tells me that I'm ovulating. I've been having some pregnancy symptoms (exhaustion, peeing a lot, and cramping really bad. What are the chances that I might be pregnant? I'm really scared, not because I don't want another baby, but because I don't want to miscarry or have a complicated pregnancy!

  • what do you do about a flare up with reflux in a 2 year old?

    My daughter was diagnosed with GERD when she was 10 months old, and has had a terrible time with it. Her peditrician put her on medication for it and she got better, and has not had any problems for a year now. She just turned 2 last week and for the last few days she has been gulping like she used to and today she threw up all over the place, and is telling me that her tummy hurts. I still had some of the medicine so I gave her some, and seems to have helped a little, but is there anything else I can do to make sure that she doesn't continue to do this?

  • can my female cat get pregnant right now?

    I took in a stray cat a few months ago and now has 3 week old kittens. I have been keeping all of them in my laundry room until the babies get old enough to take care of themselves (mama was an outdoor cat)! I don't think its fair to keep her locked up all the time, and she's begging me to get outside. However, the tom cat that got her pregnant before has been hanging around my house and I don't know if I should let her out or not. So, how soon after giving birth can a cat get pregnant? I plan to have her spayed as soon as I can, and when the babies are old enough, them too.
