Dr. Barry J. Fish M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • What's the earliest I can get a mammogram?

    You should talk to your doctor in more detail. Also you need to find out if your mother and grandmother had genetic testing done. The earliest time to start screening would be at age 30 or sometimes 10 years earlier than the earliest person that had cancer and there are several variables that may come in the play so there needs to be further discussion with your doctor regarding the types of screening as well as the genetic testing options that are now available as they are more commonly covered under insurance.

  • What if I miss a week straight of birth control pills?

    You'll need to use back up birth control such as condoms for this month. You may just resume the daily pill if you have returned. There may be some abnormal uterine bleeding whenever you miss more than one or two pills for a month. In the future if you miss one pill, you may double up the next day. However, if you miss more than two pills you should always use a back up birth control for that month. READ MORE
