This article just came out about an infant who obtained a life-threatening infection after a water birth (see below link). At this time, while they may reduce pain in early stages of labor. It is recommended that you deliver in a clean and dry setting. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-childbirth-hot-tubs/hot-tub-birth-tied-to-life-threatening-infection-for-baby-idUSKBN1CS2KN READ MORE
For breast biopsies, the radiologist may often choose to do a core needle biopsy or a fine needle aspiration. The type of biopsy the radiologist chooses depends on several factors, such as if the type of imagining required to see the abnormality or if it is palpable. While more tissue would be obtained with a core needle biopsy, it is more invasive than a fine needle aspiration. I would recommend you discuss why a particular breast biopsy is recommended by the radiologist performing the procedure. READ MORE
Constipation is a common problem in pregnancy. The recommended dose of Colace is 50-300 mg per day in divided doses. As long as you are not exceeding the recommended amount, then it is safe for the pregnancy. If Colace is not working for you, there are other safe medications for constipation that you can take, including Milk of Magnesia, Metamucil, and Senokot, which are all over the counter. If these OTC meds are not working for you, then you need to speak with your doctor. You should also be drinking plenty of water every day and following a high fiber diet. READ MORE
Implantation bleeding is usually only a small amount of spotting 10-14 days after implantation. While this happens around the time of a missed cycle, it should not bleeding typically seen with menses. In general, any bleeding in pregnancy is not normal and should warrant further evaluation.

Constipation could possibly be related to your hormones if you experience symptoms cyclically. However, there are many other causes of constipation. I would recommend you follow-up with you doctor for evaluation. READ MORE
If you missed an entire week of your birth control pills, they will no longer be effective for the remainder of the pack. You should use condoms for contraception currently. You should wait for menses to occur and then start a new pack, while using condoms as back-up for the first few weeks of use. You may have menses earlier than usual when you stop the pills early. You should follow-up with your Ob/Gyn to discuss further. READ MORE
Routine mammogram screening for low risk patients starts at age 40. However, if you have a strong family history of breast cancer, you may qualify for earlier screening exams. You should have an annual exam with your Ob/Gyn to discuss these risks and complete a breast exam. I would recommend scheduling an appointment with your Ob/Gyn to discuss your family history and personal risk of breast cancer. READ MORE
