  • Anyone have experience with using the birth control called mirena?

    Okay so I have been on mirena now for a little over a month and a half. The first 3 weeks I bled than I just stopped bleeding. Now I am having weird side effects that I believe are related to this birth control. Hot flashes, periodic nausea, periodic diarrhea, stomach upset, sometimes I have no appetite and others I am really hungry, and I am so tired but insomnia at night. The stomach upset, nausea and hot flashes are the worst. At first I thought it was the flu. But its been going on now for like 3 weeks. Anyone else go through this? I have had three children and I know what utis, bladder infections, yeast and all that feel like. I don't believe I have an infection. Before I call the doctor wanted to see if anyone else went through this. Any experience would be great thank you!

  • Looking for people who have used an IUD before!?

    So I am a mother of three children. I was using the depo shot as birth control prevention before. I have used the pill too. Both of these gave me really bad side effects. So I decided to try an IUD! Can anyone answer some questions for me on this? My doctor did not really go much into depth and I called this morning and they have yet to call me back.

    1.When you first got the IUD did you have bad cramping right away? If so how long did it last?

    2.Did you have any problems with it after prolonged use?

    3.They say your suppose to check to make sure its in place after you period etc. I know how to check my cervix but what am I looking for to know its in the right place?

    Any other information you may want to give would be helpful! Thank you for your help!

  • Ok i have a question about 2nd degree burns.?

I got some some triple layer non stick pads some tape and some burn cream. It is now oozing greenish colored stuff and sorta bleeding. I did not think it was bad enough to go to hospital but now that its bleeding and oozing greenish stuff do you think i need to go to the hospital? What are the signs of infection? Thanks!

  • Just wondering what fellow mothers think.. Thanks..?

    I had my Son July 1st 2008. So its been 3 months. I do take the pill for birth control. Here i am 3 days late for my period. I know i should take a test. But my question is can the pill ortho tri cyclen cause you to miss your period? Because i do not feel pregnant. We used the pill and condoms. So do you think it could be that i had a baby 3 months ago and the pill making my period late? Or is it worth taking a test? What do you think? Like i said i have no symptoms of pms or pregnancy!

  • Does anyone know why this is happening?

    I had a baby July 1st. My doctor informed me to take my birth control the second Sunday following birth. I stopped bleeding completely after two weeks. When i started taking the pill a week later i started bleeding and cramping like it was my period. That was two weeks before my period would of been due with the pill. I take a birth control called Jolivette. So is this normal? Why would i have a period in the middle of my cycle? Anyone else have this happen?

  • Ok another questions any help from anyone would be great.?

    Ok last night i asked this question...

    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AoDpY...

    So to update on it. This morning the child woke the family up in a startling way. They have a new born son. He is almost a month old. The child climbed in the bassinet and sat on top of the baby. On babies chest. The family has called dhs and the psychiatrist waiting on calls back. They are scared for the youngest child's safety. Seriously has anyone gone through this what would you do? There is no evidence she was trying to hurt him. But she does know that she should not sit on him or even crawl into the bassinet. And when asked nicely why she did it. She just starred blankly like she had no clue on what she did. She did not show any remorse at all. Please help!

  • Ok any opinons from parents non parents providers does not matter.?

    Ok heres the deal say you have a almost 5 year old. The child has seen multiple psychologist and been diagnosed with adhd and odd. For those who do not know odd is oppositional deficiency disorder. Say this child was put on a medicine fda approved for Adhd its not ridilin its called Detroamphetamine. This child has been to a play therapist for going on 2 years. The child has taken the meds seen psychologist numerous times. Nothing seems to work. The child is disciplined with time outs and naughty chair. Nothing seems to work. It is believed that the child was mistakingly labeled adhd and has something more serious that is not really known yet in children. The mother and father both have bipolar disorder. The child carries a lot of traits of child hood bipolar. The child is destructive, very temperamental, unpredictable like a tornado. The child knows the difference between right and wrong acts out on purpose. The child shows no remorse. Please wait more to come.

  • For mommies who have had more then one child?

    So i have been having loose stools all week. Yesterday they were loose not quite diarrhea. This morning i woke up at 4am and they have been watery. So then about 10 minutes ago i had this big jelly like substance with brown tinge come out of me. I assume this is my mucus plug? This is my third child it has been almost 4 years sense i have had a child. When you lost your mucus plug how much longer did it take for you to go into labor? Thanks!
