I had my foot frozen through ankle and freezing solution poured on my foot to take out a broken toothpick I had stepped on, but it has been a week and it feels like my toes are broken and am unable to walk; have I got nerve damage?

Freezing a foot from the ankle down to remove a foreign object such as a toothpick is not standard practice. In fact, most emergency room physicians, surgeons, and primary care physicians numb the area with lidocaine and then remove the tooth pick. A tetanus shot is given if the patient requires a booster.

I am a teacher and I got poked in my hand from an earring of a student sitting on his desk. The earring was not bloody but I want to know if I am at risk of any diseases now such as hep or hiv.

You should definitely keep your follow-up appointment with your doctor and also restart your medication immediately.

As an 18 year old I visited my GYN because I hadn’t yet had my first period. I was given a series of pills which jump started it at that time. Shortly after, I had an ultrasound which was normal and was eventually told that I would probably need to use fertility drugs for some time before getting pregnant in the future. Since then I have had to be on an oral contraceptive to maintain a monthly period. I am now 26 and married and wishing to get pregnant. I have been off of birth control for 5 months now and have been trying but not successful. Wondering if there is anything I can do before resorting to fertility drugs. Any herbs or vitamins that work?

Based on your history, I don’t see a reason why you would require fertility drugs at this time. Unless there is a definitive reason to suspect anovulation or infertility, we recommend most patients your age to try to conceive naturally for 1 year before beginning an infertility workup.

Thank you for you time.

From the information provided, it appears your ultrasound results are relatively benign. You have multiple uterine fibroids but your endometrium appears benign. Your ovaries are normal for an ovulating female and there are no suspicious masses in your uterus.
