Birth control pills work by convincing the body that it is already pregnant, therefore has no need to release an egg - thus preventing pregnancy. Yasmin is very good at protecting against pregnacy (it is a 3rd generation COC - has both oestrogen and progesterone in it.) Stomach problems are not a sy…
Birthing classes are an alternative method. They give you lots of
breathing techniques and alternatives not found with an epidural.

Having a tubal ligation does not increase your bodyweight. The recovery time for the surgery is around three to five days, and should not pose any form of long-term problem in your current diet or weight loss plan.

If you are taking the pill for health reasons, then it is not
morally wrong. I personally feel that it is much more wrong to

Condoms and spermicide will prevent pregnancy if used before sex.

If used correctly, they are 97% effective. The good thing about the spermicidal condoms are if the condom leaks or breaks, your chances of getting pregnant are still somewhat slim because the spermicide may kill the sperm that 'got away'. Also, condoms are the only protection one gets against STDs. …

I don't think that frequent hic-ups during pregnancy are anything
to worry about. Every body is different and many women experience
different "symptoms" during pregnancy - it's all about how YOUR
body reacts. When your contractions are regular and occurring every

"> Actually you seem lacking in knowledge for someone who's been practicing for 20 years. I disagree with many of the answers to this post. To answer this best, I think that it's important to understand the theory behind what causes ADHD. To simplify one of the main theories, it is believed that …
I was diagnosed about 5 years ago, and could see the ADHD all down the road behind me.

Caffeine is not a true stimulant. Rather, it enlarges blood vessels, and blocks neural receptors that try to accept the dopamine which would help the person relax.

The cheapest way to repair a tooth is with a white filling or composite. That is if there is enough tooth sturcture to hold on too. But that is not the most solid treatment.A better way to repair a tooth is to get a root canal, post and crown.
