  • What could I have?

    Good evening, It is very important that you see a gynecologist and make sure your Pap smear is up to date, thyroid screening is done along with a pelvic ultrasound and pelvic exam. Best to you. READ MORE

  • Period?

    What you may want to do is see a gynecologist and get started on a low-dose oral contraceptive. If you take it continuously, this will stop your period in many cases and also the pain. I hope this helps. Michelle Harden, MD FACOG READ MORE

  • Can you tell the baby's gender at 6 weeks?

    No, the gender can be revealed by cell free DNA after 10 weeks and normally by ultrasound at 16 weeks. Congratulations! Michelle Harden, MD, FACOG READ MORE

  • Do preconception vitamins help you conceive?

    This is a complicated question. Prenatal vitamins do decrease the risk of spina bifida and are recommended 6 weeks prior to conception. Also the methylated folate in a prenatal vitamin is very important from a physiologic standpoint and may play a role in conception. READ MORE

  • How should I prepare my body to get pregnant?

    Congratulations on your decision, and great question. There are many factors involved. I would recommend you make an appointment with your Ob/GYN to discuss the recommendations in preparing for this wonderful event. I would recommend you begin taking a Prenatal Vitamin if you are not currently on one. In health, Michelle Harden, MD READ MORE

  • What can you take for the flu when pregnant?

    It is very important to call your physician. The flu in pregnancy needs to be addressed by your physician as soon as the symptoms occur. In health, Michelle Harden, MD FACOG READ MORE

  • Could I be pregnant?

    Good morning, I would urge you to see a physician for back up birth control and use condoms to prevent sexually transmitted diseases and prevent pregnancy. If the bleeding truly was your period, then this is not a time pregnancy can occur. Protect yourself and use condoms. Michelle Harden, MD FACOG READ MORE

  • I have missed my period and the pregnancy test is negative. What could be wrong?

    If you have not been using contraception, then this does put you at risk for pregnancy. However, most urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive. It is not uncommon in times of stress or change in routine to not ovulate and hence miss a period. If you are unsure, repeating the test is a good idea. If you do not have a period within the next 30 days and your repeat pregnancy test remains negative, I would see your Ob/Gyn. They will rule out other potential concerns. I hope this was helpful.
