I had intercourse but the condom slipped off when he pulled out. I am on birth control and I don’t think any got inside me. But I took the 1st emergency contraceptive pill no later than 5 hours after intercourse but I took the 2nd pill 17 hours later. Is it still effective? Will I become pregnant?

The two pill version of Plan B instructs the user to take 1 pill within 72 hours of unprotected sex and the second pill 12 hours later. Since both pills are identical (levonorgestrel 0.75 mg), it doesn’t matter which one you take first. If you took the second pill 17 hours after the first pill, . . . → Read More: I had intercourse but the condom slipped off when he pulled out.

I recently had unprotected anal sex. Afterwards I went to the bathroom and noticed that the tissue felt really sticky. I looked down to realize that I had wiped sperm onto my vagina. I also either ovulated on the day before or after this incident. I took plan b 21 hours after this occurred. I am wondering how likely it is that I have conceived in this time period.

The morning after pill (Plan B), a high dose levonorgestrel (synthetic estrogen), is one of the most effective methods of emergency contraception.

My partner had a right thyroid lobectomy about 5 months ago, to remove a growth. At the time all scans and blood tests and biopsies were all negative for anything nasty, as was the biopsy on the growth they removed. About a month ago he was started on eutroxsig – 50mg for an underactive thyroid. Over the last 2 weeks he said that his throat muscles seem a bit tight, no sore or hurting or anything and not causing problems with swallowing etc. He has always had a gravelly voice but I feel since he mentioned his muscle being tight I don’t know if if is my imagination I thing his voice is more so. I am stressing that it could be pointing to something serious even though all the tests at the time of the operation were all clear. He definitely cannot feel any lumps and his throat is not sore in any way.

As people recover from a thyroid lobectomy they may experience symptoms such as sore throat, difficulty swallowing, or hoarse voice which may last for 5-7 days immediately post-operatively. These symptoms are mainly due to the tissue swelling around the area of surgery and should resolve over time as the swelling decreases.

I have been experiencing pain in my left chest area for 3 days now. As far as I know, I did not do anything to aggravate it. Any idea of the cause?

Any chest pain not related to trauma can be a warning sign of an underlying heart condition especially those with increased cardiac risk (history of diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart problems, etc.) such as yourself. The pain would be especially worrisome if it increases with exertion and activity, increases in magnitude, is associated with shortness . . . → Read More: I have been experiencing pain in my left chest area for 3 days now.

I am 30 weeks pregnant. I have degenerative disk disease and 2 bulging disks, so i have constant back leg and feet pain. However since about 24 weeks My feet pain has greatly increased and both of my feet seem to be numb on the inside of my heels. I have calluses and cracked heels as well so I don’t really know what is going on. Even though there is numbing there is still pain. Help!

Pregnancy is likely to increase back pain because of the added weight of the fetus stresses your spine.

Your foot pain and swelling is most likely not related to the back pain. It is, however, related to the pregnancy. As your fetus grows and your uterus enlarges in size, it compresses the major vein . . . → Read More: I am 30 weeks pregnant.
