  • My sister has hemophillia. Should she have a baby?

    Yes she can have a baby. She should see a reproductive endocrinologist before conceiving to try to maximize her baby not being affected. There is technology that can test eggs and sperm in vitro to her have an unaffected baby. READ MORE

  • Can pregnancy cause eye strain?

    The hormones in pregnancy relax smooth muscle. Eye strain can be normal in pregnant women, but can also be a sign of something more serious. I recommend an examination from your eye doctor. Katherine Leigh Hilsinger, MD READ MORE
