  • How can I manage my mood swings during pregnancy?

    The hormone fluctuation that happens during pregnancy can lead to different degrees of mood changes, ranging from depression to anxiety to irritability. The important thing to recognize is that there could be underlying causes for this that are not related to pregnancy but have been aggravated by pregnancy. There is also a possibility that you are at high risk of having postpartum depression. It is important that you seek care with your OBGYN or better with a psychiatrist and yes there are medications that can help you through this. READ MORE

  • What causes cramps during pregnancy?

    Abdominal cramps in pregnancy can be for many reasons, first it depends on which part of the abdomen you are feeling them, if they are generalized all over, then most likely you are dehydrated.

  • Ovulation pain

    Hi, Ovulation can happen from either one of the ovaries. The usual thought process is that it alternates each month. For ovulation to occur there are first many follicles that grow in the ovary and only one gets the size large enough to release an egg, so if this follicle is deeper and there is extra tissue to rupture through to release an egg, it might hurt a little more. This is again just a theory; we really still don’t know why some women feel pain and some don’t. READ MORE

  • RA and pregnancy

    Hello, You are correct about not being able to take methotrexate during pregnancy. The good news is pregnancy state improves rheumatoid arthritis in 70% of women.

The hardest part is getting pregnant, women with RA can take a long time to get pregnant, on average over 12 months. Hope this helps, good luck! RB READ MORE
