By doc I tested again for pregnancy but it's still negative and I have this thing moving on my tummy the last time I went to the clinic they gave me the famynor so I want to know what do these pills do

B-Wise Expert Expert 5 June 2020 10:31

Hello,

Famynor is a combination hormone medication that is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin and an estrogen. It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle.

Preventing pregnancy is good for when you are not ready for a baby yet. Contraceptives won't mess with your chances of having a baby when you stop using them

B-Wise Expert Expert 3 June 2020 16:32

The penis does not reach the bladder and womb during sex because they are too far. What the penis is hitting is the opening to the womb called the cervix. You can prevent it by not penetrating too deep and causing your partner pain

Good evening, I'm a girl with 26year . last year I find out that i have depression. When it started I didn't took it seriously until I started talking alone, losing interest in things I use to do, no longer want to socialize, not feeling like bathing and also losing appetite. I once found myself in a place I don't even know around 3am. That's where i decided to go to the clinic to talk with someone. After that i started taking some meds even now am still on it. The problem i have now is sometime am moody and when am angry i destroy everthing that is around me. So what can i do to calm myself because am scared to ask my pcychratist this question?

After giving birth on the 21th of February 2020 I was given a prevention injection (depo). My next appointment for my prevention injection was on the 15th of May 2020, but I didn't go. A week later while having sex with my husband, the condom burst. Is it possible for me to be pregnant even though I haven't had my periods since giving birth?

B-Wise Expert Expert 31 May 2020 16:42

Hello,

The chances are low but I recommend you get a pregnancy test to check. Make sure you go get your injection.

B-Wise Expert Expert 29 May 2020 11:01

Hello,

High blood pressure is a lifestyle disease which means it is caused by how you live your life e.g. what you eat, how much you exercise. It is easier to control which is why you get regular treatment for that.

Kidney disease is more difficult to treat and needs special medication from the doctor

B-Wise Expert Expert 29 May 2020 09:40

Hello,

Pregnancy happens when the sperm goes into the vagina and goes all the way up where the egg is in the womb and fertilises it. If you have been having unprotected sex then there is a chance you are pregnant. Try testing again for pregnancy

Hello,

Prolonged jaundice is when the yellowness of your baby's skin and the whites of their eyes doesn't fade after 2 weeks in a full-term baby, and after 3 weeks in a premature baby. Prolonged jaundice is usually harmless, but can be a sign of a serious liver problem.

There is no set time when your periods will return because peoples bodies react differently, as the medication gets out of your system your periods wil return. Please note that just because you are not seeing your periods does not mean you will not fall pregnant if you have unprotected sex

What to do when your discharge smells bad?

B-Wise Expert Expert 28 May 2020 08:00

Most girls and women have vaginal discharge during their reproductive years. Discharge is normal if a clear or white liquid comes out of your vagina from time-to-time during your monthly cycle. It may feel a bit wet and sticky, but shouldn’t smell bad. If you have a discharge that has changed recently, smells bad, is brown or creamy in colour, or you have itching or sores around your vagina, you may have an infection and need to seek medical attention.

Different types of vaginal discharges that need medical attention:

• Thrush (Candida)
Thrush is an infection of the vagina that causes itching, as well as a creamy discharge. It is very common. It is not a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) but can be sexually transmitted.

• Bacterial Vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis is an infection of the vagina that causes a watery, bad smelling discharge. Although bacterial vaginosis is not an STI, having many sexual partners as well as cleaning your vagina with strong soaps can put you at risk for this infection.

• Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are STIs that can cause an unusual discharge, or pain when you pee. Sometimes people don't have any symptoms of these STIs. If these infections are not treated they can cause damage to your womb, tubes and ovaries and if untreated may result in infertility.

Seek care as soon as possible if you have any symptoms or if you are concerned!

Not all infections are sexually transmitted, but it is not always easy to tell the difference. It is important that you and your partner see a nurse or a doctor to get tested and treated for all infections. Remember to avoid having unprotected sex until your doctor or nurse has advised you that it is safe to do so!

Symptoms, treatment or cure for pneumonia and also what causes it

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 May 2020 18:53

Hello,

Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. Bacteria, viruses, and fungi cause it.

Anyone can get this lung infection. But infants younger than age 2 and people over age 65 are at higher risk.

Lifestyle habits, like smoking cigarettes and drinking too much alcohol, can also raise your chances of getting pneumonia.

Common pneumonia symptoms include:

  • Chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Cough that produces phlegm or mucus
  • Fatigue and loss of appetite
  • Fever, sweating, and chills
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Shortness of breath

Hello,

Yeast infections are caused by Candida infection and the hormones in pregnancy makes it worse, post natally you will still experience the symptoms because the hormones are still equivalent to pregnancy. Please go to the doctor or your nearest clinic and get Anti-fungal medication and creams, you do not need antibiotics.

B-Wise Expert Expert 2 June 2020 14:09

Hi, 

Jaundice in newborns is common and most babies go to hospital and are treated with UV light rays and respond very well, but it requires one to be patient and the baby will be fine if treated in hospital. Clinics do not have the equipment used to treat Jaundice, its important that you take the baby to hospital.

These are hormonal contraceptives tablets to fix your cycle to be normal and to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The pain might be due to PMS(premenstrual syndrome), and the tablets will help with that. If that does not help please go back to the clinic and explain you are not getting better

B-Wise Expert Expert 2 June 2020 13:53

Hello,

Your case seems like a case that would be seen by Physician, a specialist that deals with diagnosis and medical treatment of conditions. If the hospital did not refer you to this person please ask for one in the gov institutions, its free .

Unfortunately as a gov entity e cannot recommend any doctor besides advice that you use our gov institutions, but if you are not happy with the service then you can google for one in your area.

Hi , I had Hiv exposure 9 weeks ago, I was given pep by my Dr on the 7th day, which he told me the pep. Might not work. He recommended I come back for an hiv test after I finished the treatment. So we did a 4th generation test at 8 weeks post exposure and the results were negative. So Iâ??m at still anxious that the results couldâ??ve been a false negative since I was on TLD for 30 days. Please advise, are my results accurately negative?

B-Wise Expert Expert 2 June 2020 13:52

Hello,

Apologies for such an experience, it really is unfortunate.

The test is done after PEP completion because it checks the transmission that happened after window period and it should be accurate. PEP's main job is to make sure the virus is not transmitted from the host patient to the one who was exposed to it, its also important to use protection when you engage in sex while on PEP

Hi Doc...what causes ectopic pregnancy and how long does it last

B-Wise Expert Expert 22 May 2020 16:16

Hello,

An ectopic pregnancy is often caused by damage to the fallopian tubes. A fertilized egg may have trouble passing through a damaged tube, causing the egg to implant and grow in the tube. 

Once your doctor sees the pregnancy then they will tell you the next steps



B-Wise User Anonymous 22 May 2020 13:09

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 May 2020 14:44

Hello,

Period apps are great at tracking periods but they are not always 100% right. The app being wrong by 3 days is normal because a menstrual cycle can be any time between 28 to 35 days. You are not pregnant and the headache is linked to the period.

Hello,

The only way to tell if you are pregnant is to get a pregnancy test done. You also need to go to the clinic or doctor to get checked so you know why your breasts have brown water coming out of them.

You need to make sure you are feeding him enough food when it is time to eat and giving him smaller snacks through out the day. He might not be getting full because he's not eating enough

Hi doc is it possible to see any symptoms if ur patner use implant or contraceptives or injection? Is it possible to get pregnant if u using implant?

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 May 2020 13:05

Hello there,

You cannot see whether your partner is using the injection, implant or IUD. 

The implant is one of the safest contraceptives available. It will protect you from pregnancy 99% of the time but it doesn't protect from STIs and HIV which is why condoms are important.

The only way to count for pregnancy is when you are pregnant and you go to the clinic and doctor and they tell you.

If the child has been born and you are not sure about their paternity, you need to do a DNA test for the child

Hello,

You will be able to see the symptoms when you have the infection. It takes a few days or even more than a week for symptoms to show in some cases which is why everyone needs to follow the precautions (mask, washing hands, sanitising and social distance) so they don't spread the virus without knowing.

B-Wise Expert Expert 19 May 2020 15:48

Hello,

Some people don't experience symptoms which is why it's very important to have regular pap smears. 

Some symptoms can be: 

  • Blood spots or light bleeding between or following periods.
  • Menstrual bleeding that is longer and heavier than usual.
  • Bleeding after intercourse, douching, or a pelvic examination.
  • Increased vaginal discharge.
  • Pain during sexual intercourse.
  • Bleeding after menopause.
  • Unexplained, persistent pelvic and/or back pain.

Good day doc I am Mrs. T and 32 years of age. I had a tubal ligation in 2014 when i had my last bby who is now 6 years of age. Well doc ever since the sterilisation i had normal period monthly which lasted about 5 days. Now on thr 24th of March 2020 i had my period which lasted 5 days. Thereafter i got my period on the 13 of May 202 which is 45 days late. Its the first time i missed 1 month. And on the 13th i started spotting bt by eveningit was gone hence i took a preg test and was negative. The following morning i started bleeding but that lasted only 2 days on the 3rd day and 4th day no period. I noticed i had a rash like a thrush infection and used uripass pills and subsequently i had a orange dischargr. I called my gynae and he told me that its normal to miss a period once a year. But theb he asked my age and suggested that i wait until next mnth for my mext period. Im still unclear as to what to do.. i still feel uncertain although i know its impossible for me to be pregnant but im just worried contemplating i ddnt go for a papsmear yet since 2014.Any guidance or advise on what to do doc?

B-Wise Expert Expert 18 May 2020 18:59

Hello,

I would advise you to wait until next month as your gynae said. Try not to worry too much. You can also go for a pap smear in the meantime to check if everything is still okay.

Gestational hypertension is a condition caused by pregnancy where the blood pressure increases to more than 130/90. This happens after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Importantly the hospital should also check your urine and see if there is protein in the urine as that will mean the hypertension has started to affect the kidneys which is a condition called pre-eclampsia. If the condition is left undiagnosed and untreated that can be dangerous for you and the baby.

Please go to the hospital very soon as this is important for you and your baby. Continue eating healthy food (low in salt), and also avoid alcohol and fizzy drinks. You are not at fault ,most pregnant women develop the condition and its treatable, just go to the hospital to be taken care of.

B-Wise Expert Expert 19 May 2020 15:42

Hi,

It would be lovely to know how old the baby is, as there are milestones that need to be reached by the baby at particular ages. When you need to go back to work or go somewhere you can easily express your milk and leave it in the fridge. If the baby needs to feed, whoever is looking after the baby can just warm the milk up. Please make sure you sterilize or clean the bottles you express in, and also the person who feeds the baby must wash their hands properly before and after preparing feeds. Please continue to bond with your baby even though they will now be bottle fed or cup fed your breastmilk, bonding is very important in their development.

Hi...I am on the two month injection(contraceptive)for more thn 6months now and suddenly i stopped getting my period were as I got it every month..is it normal?could I be pregnant even though I haven't missed any appointment dates?

B-Wise Expert Expert 18 May 2020 12:58

Hello there,

It is very normal for this to happen. The injection can change your menstrual cycle to either get it for longer or shorter or sometimes not at all. You are also likely to see a change in your period flow as well.

Hi,

You should wait to take a pregnancy test until the week after your missed period for the most accurate result. If you don't want to wait until you've missed your period, you should wait at least one to two weeks after you had sex.

The person needs to see a trained psychologist or counselor who will diagnose them with bipolar disorder and give them medication: https://bwisehealth.com/article/can-medication-improve-your-mental-health

A person who has this disorder experiences episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. But remember, the person needs to be diagnosed first by a professional.

Good morning Doc, I have an implant (contraceptive) for over a year now. Since I got it my periods come once in 2 months. My concern is the flow is very low and limited in a dark red/brown colour throughout the week! Should I be worried?

B-Wise Expert Expert 14 May 2020 16:24

Hi there,

This is quite normal when you are on the implant. It changes your period cycle and the way your flow is.

Hello Tshidi,

No, your partner's semen will not affect the baby in any way. What is likely to happen though is that you could fall pregnant again even though you are breastfeeding.

Hi Doc Today I tested for the Corona virus and they inserted a swab thing deep inside my nostril now the thing is I'm scared of what the results might say and the superstitions around the virus and testing that they are contaminated with the virus. I feel scared

B-Wise Expert Expert 10 May 2020 14:23

Hi there,

There is nothing to be scared about. If the results come back positive then you will be treated and you'll have to stay isolated at home. The things they use to test are not contaminated with the virus. You will be okay.

Hi...I gave birth on February and was injected depo for birth control, since then I just stopped preventing my concern is that I'm not bleeding at all I just have a discharge mixed with blood,will it ever stop nd what's the cause of it??

B-Wise Expert Expert 10 May 2020 14:16

Hi there,

Sometimes women experience what you are after getting off the injection. If it doesn't stop, go to the clinic or doctor.

How can I get my stomach flat and my breast is really small can I get suggestions on how to make it bigger pls??

B-Wise Expert Expert 10 May 2020 14:15

Hi, 

You need to exercise and eat healthy to get your stomach flat. Your breast size is not something you can change. Sometimes your breasts get bigger as you get older and once you have a child.

Hello doctor is it possible to test HIV positive nd your partner test negative??

B-Wise Expert Expert 10 May 2020 14:12

Hello,

Yes it is possible. If this happens, the HIV negative partner must consider going on PrEP: https://bwisehealth.com/article/what-is-prep

The HIV positive must go on ARVs and the couple must use condoms every time they have sex.

B-Wise Expert Expert 10 May 2020 14:09

Hey,

Being on contraceptives can change the way your period comes and how regular your cycle is. Your period might come after the red pills or even next month until your body is used to the pill.

B-Wise Expert Expert 7 May 2020 11:39

Hi Lexi,

It is completely normal for someone who is 35 weeks pregnant to experience what you are. The baby has gotten much bigger now and is putting pressure on your back and bladder as well as pelvis. If it gets worse, go to the clinic or doctor to get checked.

B-Wise Expert Expert 7 May 2020 11:32

Hi there,

Circumcision can boost your confidence as a boy but most importantly, it keeps you safer from infection.

Penises grow at different rates and they become different sizes. They don't always grow as you grow. Nothing is wrong with you.



B-Wise User Thobanie 6 May 2020 16:25

Hi there,

There is nothing you can do to increase penis size. Staying at home also does not impact penis size.

B-Wise Expert Expert 6 May 2020 11:16

Hi there,

Yes, there is a possibility of pregnancy. There is always a chance of pregnancy when you have unprotected sex. It is not true that a female must also cum in order to fall pregnant.

You will not experience symptoms so soon. I advise you to get a pregnancy test to check.

B-Wise Expert Expert 4 May 2020 15:48

Hi there,

There is only one way to tell who impregnated you. You need to have a DNA test done either while you are pregnant or once the baby is born. There is no way to tell based on dates because the dates are too close.

It is normal to experience side effects like this when you are still starting treatment plus the pregnancy also has side effects. If things don't improve, go to the doctor or clinic.

Hi there. About 67 days ago I had my last period then about 4 days later I went on the pill. Then about 37 days ago I started on nuristerate without getting my period (I didn't drink the red pills so I didn't get my period, I thought it would come but it didn't). So today I got my period but I've been extremely moody and bloated. Am I pregnant? Or is this normal?

B-Wise Expert Expert 30 April 2020 13:00

Hi there,

What you are describing sounds normal because it can take a few months for the period cycle to go back to normal when you stop a contraception. Since you took the pill and then changed to the injection, your body was working on adjusting.

A lot of women experience brown discharge for a day or two after their period but since you say it's been a while, go to the clinic or doctor to get checked.

Hi, I had my first shot of the nuristerate injection on the 20th of Jan 2020. On the 11th of feb I had unprotected sex then 4 days later I had my normal period and never had sex after that. I was due for my next shot on the 16th March but I never went I decided to stop. I haven't had my periods during march and now April is ending. I had a day of light bleeding during april but nothing else since then. Please advise on what the problem is, could I be pregnant?

B-Wise Expert Expert 28 April 2020 11:34

Hi there,

Your body is going to take a while to go back to normal where your period is regular. After stopping the injection, it may take a month or two to get your period as normal. If you are unsure, get a pregnancy test to check.

Hi there,

Your loop needs to be checked to make sure it is still in the right place and to make sure it doesn't need to be replaced. Go to the clinic or doctor to get checked.

Hi Boniswa,

It is possible that you could be pregnant but the only way to know for sure is to get a pregnancy test and check.

Hi. I have been using the prevention injection for about a year but I decided to stop last month and I got my period a day after my injection date. Now my breasts are swollen and heavy,my nipples hurt,and I'm urinating frequently and I haven't had my periods this month.I had unprotected sex a few times.I heard it takes about 3 to 4 months for the injection to wear off but I also know women bodies react diffently.Is it possible that I could be pregnant ?

You are right when you say that women's bodies react differently. It is possible that you could be pregnant. Get a pregnancy test to check.

Hi there,

It is not a good idea to stop your medication. The clinic or doctor will still be able to give you your medication because it is an essential service. You are also not forced to tell your employers about your status. Just tell them you need your chronic medication.

B-Wise Expert Expert 23 April 2020 17:59

Hi there, 

Firstly, you have to tell your partner that you are HIV positive and that he may possibly be positive as well. That is very important. It's also important that you have sex with a condom every time to keep the baby and yourself safe from re-infection. You need to be brave and tell him to go to the clinic.

How can I stop myself from eating too much. And how effective are the fab diets

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 April 2020 11:25

Hi there,

Fad diets are not effective because they might make you lose weight but you usually gain the weight all back.

You can stop yourself from eating too much by planning what you are going to eat each day and write it down the day before. It's best to have three main meals and one or two snacks each day. Also drink a glass of water before you eat.

It is very important to accept your body and penis size as it is. Growing your penis is something that is very difficult to do. If you are a teenager, it is still growing. The size of your penis should not contribute to how you see yourself as a man.

Thank you very much Doc,you always helpful and this app is really helping us. If only Department of Health and labour Department can really toughen up and visit all local Motuaries we will be safe,...because Motuary Managers and Bosses don't supply us with Uniform(PPE)and necessary apparatus for the kind of work we do...they don't care about our safety they only care about money...we were recently told that family members of the Deceased is not allowed to bath their own Corpse...Employees of the Motuary should...but its very difficult for us without proper safety....i dont know who to report this matter to ...especially one who can't be bribed...sorry to elaborate much on labour issues but i am really frastrated because no one is willing to regulate and properly inspect motuaries and they really are killing us as well...

Hey am 29yrs old, married and a mother of one. I have been using depo-provera injection since september last year. This year, i was to go for my shot on March 27th but was late due to my demanding job. I took it on the March 31st. Now i feel a tingling sensation on my breast en irritation? Could i be pregnant? Before i got the shot i was slightly bleedinng could i have been fertile cz i slept with my husband same day and didn'nt use protection

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 April 2020 13:43

Hi there,

It looks like you are ready for another baby, and good luck in trying. There really is no way of telling whether you are pregnant or not, it all depends on you taking a pregnancy test to prove to yourself. If the test is inconclusive as it might be early to tell, please go and see a dr. the signs you are mentioning can also be signs of PMS (pre menstrual syndrome),  which happens just before you go to your periods. Please confirm from your doctor.



B-Wise User Anonymous 17 April 2020 14:45

Good day Doc, I have been on Arv's since last year but not more than a year though.

I can promise you that I always take my meds accurately! Waht could be the Case?

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 April 2020 13:42

Hi there,

We are thank full that you managed to fight the meningitis off , the fact that you consistently take your treatment that has caused you to have an immune system that can fight the disease. The signs and symptoms are suggestive of TB , and it’s the first opportunistic infection that affects people living with HIV. May you please visit your nearest clinic and test for TB, or revisit your Dr and explain what is happening.

B-Wise Expert Expert 17 April 2020 17:01

Morning, I am HIV positive and on treatment since January last year (2019). What may be the cause of my viral load to flactuate (up and down) even though I take my meds at the same time every day (night) and constantly use protection (condoms) with my wife? The blood tests done in January this year (2020) came back with a viral load of 197, an improvement from the previous 497 last year around September. I took another blood test in March this year and the results came back this month with a disappointing viral load of 524. It is stressing me out as I am determined to leave a healthy life.

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 April 2020 13:26

Hi there,

The viral load is the number of Virus copies in your blood and checks if the body is responding to ARVs that you take  and we want to decrease all the time to less than 50 copies (new ART guidelines) we call this viral suppression. And then there is CD4 count cells which assess how strong is your immune system, this we want to increase all the time to above at least 50-600 cells .

Please visit Your clinic and ask about the new drug DTG (DELATEGROVIOUR), this drug has been tested and proven to suppress viral load  quick and maintains good quality of life. The clinic or dr will check if you qualify for the criteria of being switched to DTG.

Good day, 4 years back my wife gave birth to our baby and unfortunately the baby died the following day and after that she tried to commit suicide by drinking pills and she survived that. The problem is that we have been trying for a baby for this past years and she doesn't get pregnant. She went to the clinic, she did pap smear and also she was given medication to drink for the whole month before trying again and the problem was still the same. She went for the second time and was given the medication again to drink for the whole month before trying again and the problem is still the same. Can you please help us!

Invitro fertilization (IVF) is when a woman's egg is combined with a man's sperm outside the body by a doctor and then put back into the women's body so the baby can grow in her womb. This process is done when a couple is struggling to have a child.

Hi there,

The pill can change your period (menstrual) cycle in many ways. Some people experience more periods in a month or longer periods. Some people miss their period on some months. If you keep missing your period, go to the clinic or doctor and get checked.

I also advise that you use also use a condom everytime you have sex to ensure more protection from an unplanned pregnancy and to prevent from STIs.

Breastfeeding can make the breast painful and swollen especially if she produces more milk than the baby is taking.

She can express the milk to relieve the pressure in her breast but if the pain is unbearable please visit the clinic/Dr

B-Wise Expert Expert 16 April 2020 15:37

Hi there,

There is no clear cause for SIDs. This syndrome is when a baby under the age  of 12 months dies without a clear reason. There is not much you can do to prevent it but it can be helpful to put a baby on his/her back when they are sleeping instead of on their side.

Tonsils can be caused by infections or viruses. Removing your tonsils will mean that there is less chance of them recurring but it is important to talk to a doctor who has examined you. Sometimes it is not wise to remove tonsils but rather to treat the infection.

B-Wise Expert Expert 16 April 2020 11:55

Hi Willamina,

Since you did attend you appointment in April, I would say that the chances of pregnancy are low.  I would recommend though that you still use condoms because they increase the protection when they are used with a contraceptive.

Having unprotected sex puts u in risk of infection besides using a condom wats the safest way to impregnate my partner

B-Wise Expert Expert 16 April 2020 11:49

Hi there, 

It is very important that you keep using condoms and ensure that the partner is using contraceptives as well. This is called dual protection. Read more about contraceptives here: https://bwisehealth.com/article/different-kinds-of-contraceptives-and-family-planning-options-to-prevent-pregnancy

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 April 2020 13:25

Hi there, You need to see a gynecologist to assess the wound and for further advice.



B-Wise User Anonymous 15 April 2020 16:30

Hi I'd like to know the chances of getting pregnant on implant birth control and what would happen if one is pregnant on implant and is unaware of it for more then one month if possible and how could one tell they are pregnant on the birth control implant?

B-Wise Expert Expert 16 April 2020 11:25

Hi there, the implant is one of the most effective contraceptives available. It has a 99.9% rate of effectiveness. People still can get pregnant when they are using the implant but the chances are low. How a person would know they are pregnant is if they take a pregnancy test to check. If you do find that you are pregnant, you then need to decide what you want to do.

Hi Doc . I last had my periods on the 9th until 13th of March . Had sex on the 23rd I'm not on contraceptives . I was suppose to see my periods on the 10th this month nothing happened . My nipples are so painful when i touch them what could be the problem

B-Wise Expert Expert 16 April 2020 11:19

Hi there,

I would not immediately panic. Sometimes a menstrual (period) cycle can be irregular and take slightly longer than usual. If your period has not come in a few days then I would advise you to either go to the clinic or get a pregnancy test just so you can be sure.



B-Wise User Anonymous 15 April 2020 14:31

Hi, i had unprotected sex then I took a morning after pill but then i haven't got my period and ive been vomiting after eating meals. Could i be pregnant

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 15:03

Hi Amaya,

The morning after pill can sometimes change how long your menstrual (period) cycle is. This means that your period can either come earlier or later than normal within the next month.

This pill can also cause vomiting and nausea sometimes. If this continues and your period doesn't come,, please get a pregnancy test or go to the clinic.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 14:30

Hi there,

When you are a teenager, it's a very hard time because you are dealing with so much and always comparing yourself. The only advice I can give you is that you need to learn to accept your boobs and body as it is. You are beautiful in your own way and need to learn that but it does take time.

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 April 2020 17:26

Hi there,

Go back to the clinic or doctor and tell them that you are still having these problems. They will check you again and give you more treatment.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 12:45

Hi there,

It is very normal to experience lower back pain and the urge to pee when you are pregnant. The baby is pushing on your bladder and causing pressure in your back.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 12:44

B-Wise Expert Expert 22 April 2020 12:08

Hi, In that case then a different test must be conducted. You blood must be drawn and taken to the lab for testing than using a rapid test

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 12:36

Hi there,

I highly doubt that you are pregnant. Were you checked for pregnancy before you got the implant? It might be a side effect of the implant since it is still new so I would advise you to go to the clinic and get checked.



B-Wise User Chweu 14 April 2020 16:08

Why would the clinics recommend rapid testing knowing that some individuals are undetactable and not showing on test results.

B-Wise Expert Expert 22 April 2020 12:08

Rapid testing is used when you 1st test for HIV. If you are on ARVs a rapid test is not used.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 11:41

Hi there,

It is natural for babies to cry and get a bit sick when they are teething. You can try calm the baby by massaging their gums, giving them cold fruit to suck on. You can also go to the clinic or chemist to get something to help the baby feel less pain and discomfort.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 11:38

Hi there,

Firstly, you need to talk to him and tell him that you are serious about using condoms. You need to use protection, this is very important.

I would also advise that you go to the clinic and ask them about PrEP (pre exposure prophylaxis). This is for people who are HIV negative but exposed to the infection through their positive partners. Read more about it here: https://bwisehealth.com/article/what-is-prep

B-Wise Expert Expert 14 April 2020 17:58

Hi Passion,

This sounds like it's either an STI if you once had unprotected sex or it could be an infection which is caused by many things. You need to go to the clinic or doctor as soon as you can to get checked and treated.

As long as you are keeping yourself and the baby as clean as possible and you are washing your hands regularly, kissing your baby shouldn't be a problem. Just don't kiss the baby when you are sick as that could infect him/her.

B-Wise Expert Expert 14 April 2020 17:26

Hi there,

It is important that you stretch out the parts of the body that you have been working out so that the microscopic tears don't hurt as much. The body heals at different rates so it's normal that sometimes it takes longer than 2 days to heal. I would not panic.

Hi. I have recently got a boyfriend and we been together for 3 months, so we have not been using a condom coz he said he knows his status and he tested HIV negative last year around January, so I bought pregnancy test and tested positive. When we went to the local clinic we decided to test for hiv and his results came positive and mine negative. Can there be any chance I test negative after 3 months but while I'm pregnant? Or is it obvious that I will test positive?

B-Wise Expert Expert 14 April 2020 17:24

Hi there,

I would recommend that you go back to the clinic to test after 3 months to make sure that you are actually negative. Sometimes it takes as much as 3 months for your test to be accurate.

In the meantime, I suggest that you and your partner use condoms whenever you have sex.

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 April 2020 13:34

Hi there,

Firstly, you need to go back to the clinic or doctor to discuss another type of treatment since you are HIV positive that won't have too many side effects. You need to be on treatment otherwise you are going to get very sick. You also need to use condoms when having sex all the time to protect yourself and the person you are having sex with. You and baby daddy also need to get screened for STIs and baby daddy needs to go back to get tested for HIV again.

He also needs to tell his first baby mama to get tested for HIV and screened for STIs.

Hi Nombushezi,

It's very important that you go to the clinic or doctor as soon as possible to get checked so you can know exactly what kind of STI you have and get treatment for it before it affects the baby.

Hi Makabelo,

It's time that you decide what you want for your life and the lives of your children. Dating a married man is always complicated because you can never be sure that he is going to leave his wife. It's time you sit down with him and tell him to do the right thing or you might have to consider leaving him because 9 years is a long time.

Hy i wanted to know if pull out prevent a girl from falling pregnant

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2020 15:21

Hi there,

The pull out method is not a good way to prevent pregnancy because the girl can still fall pregnant.

  • Not all sperm are released when you ejaculate or cum, some are a little more eager and release in your pre-cum, so you could still get someone pregnant.
  • Pulling out will also not stop you from getting STIs or protect you from getting HIV.
  • Constantly worrying about pulling out in time - or if your partner will pull out in time -doesn't make for satisfying sex.

It's important to accept your body as it is. You can still love yourself and please someone sexually with your penis, no matter the size.

Sexual health is a source of great concern for many men. Yet, most men do not talk to their nurses or doctors about their sexual health concerns. But as men, we really need more information about our sexual and reproductive health to help with our sexual health issues, no matter our age.

Here are a few sexual reproductive health issues you should know about:

• Sexual dysfunction: Sexual problems that cause a man to ejaculate early or late, lose sexual interest or have problems getting or keeping an erection.

• Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Sexual diseases that you get during sexual intercourse that cause pain when peeing, discharge from the penis or swelling around the penis area.

• Prostatitis (pross-tuh-TYT-uhss): Swelling of the prostate that causes pain in the penis especially during peeing or ejaculation as well as difficulty peeing.

• Prostate Cancer: Cancer that affects a gland in a male's reproductive system causing difficulty in peeing, frequent peeing, blood in the pee or pain when actually peeing.

• Testicular Cancer: Cancer affects the balls, causing a lump to grow on one ball and appear to be bigger than the other.

The good news is that it is very easy to detect these infections and sexual reproductive health problems and treatment can often help sexual problems. You just need to visit the nearest clinic and talk to a nurse or doctor about your concerns.

Hi, i have a problem. I had an unprotected sex on January so i used plan B the following day. I repeated the same thing the following week so now I have not seen my periods on february and march. what could be the problem please help

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2020 15:01

Hi there,

The plan B can change your menstrual cycle so that your cycle is longer or shorter. Some women even notice some bleeding or spotting. This is the reason why you haven't seen your periods for two month because you took it twice.

Your period will come.

It's very important that you only have protected sex with a condom and that you go on a contraceptive.

B-Wise Expert Expert 15 April 2020 12:26

You can not use your partners with ARV treatment. You have defaulted and need to go back to the hospital for more test. You can also go to a public facility ad get your ARVs without any medical aid. that way you will not default on your treatment

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2020 14:49

Hi Carol,

Many women struggle with reaching an orgasm and it takes time. 

I would recommend you starting by masturbating when you are alone to help you figure out where you like being touched and what kind of pleasure you get. Once you've figured out how to pleasure yourself, you can teach your partner how to do that to you as well.

Please read this: https://bwisehealth.com/article/pleasuring-yourself

You can also include the use of sex toys to spice up your sex life.

Should I go seek medical assistance?

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2020 13:46

Hi there,

It can take a really long time for the body to regulate itself after being on the depo injection as a contraceptive method. 

It can take as short as 6 months to as long as 18 months but I would recommend you go to the clinic or doctor just to check that everything is okay.

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2020 13:41

There is always a possibility of falling pregnant so I would say get  a pregnancy test done to ease your mind. 

It's also important to get checked to make sure you don't have an infection left by the condom being inside for too long. Go to the clinic or doctor.

When do periods start after you've stopped using petogen?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 16:44

Hi there, it can take a few months after stopping petogen for your period to go back to normal. You might start noticing some spotting after while. Please be sure to visit your nearest clinic if you are not sure.

Hey there,

That sounds really uncomfortable. What you are describing sounds like a type of period pain called dysmenorrhea. Please go to the clinic or doctor to get checked because something could be wrong.

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 16:38

Yes it is possible. It's always best to use dual protection so a contraceptive and a condom.

Are you on contraceptives?

There is always a chance of getting pregnant when you have unprotected sex. Please get a pregnancy test to make sure and keep away from engaging in unprotected sex.

Hi there,

There is always a possibility of being pregnant when you have unprotected sex. I would recommend getting a pregnancy test just to be sure.

In future, avoid unprotected sex because it is dangerous to your health and increases the chance of pregnancy.

Does smoking help with anything when stressed?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 16:20

Hi there,

Smoking is very unhealthy and does not help.

People become addicted to the short relief it gives them but then they need more. I would recommend you find another way to deal with stress such as exercising, going for a walk, talking to someone.

Hi a 44 years old woman with 3 handsome young man age 23 16 and 8 married for 24 years. My problem is that since the lockdown has started it has been tence in the house. I was so happy about it as it was going to bring us together as family because my husband is always at work but it turns out that I was wrong. Our marriage has never been perfect for all past years it had been quite tough for me but I kept on hoping it will be ok but nothing change. I love my husband but I'm really tired i want out before is too late. I was just hoping to get a job so that i can be able to take care of my boys please help me I'm desperate

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 16:04

Hi Mmapaseka,

I am so sorry to hear about your situation at home. It sounds really rough.

Firstly, it is important that if your husband is abusing you in any way (physically, emotionally, mentally), then you must read this link for help on who to contact: https://bwisehealth.com/article/abuse-is-not-normal-behaviour 

You need to make a decision to leave if that's what you want and check on job websites on the internet such as https://www.careerjunction.co.za/.




B-Wise User Anonymous 4 April 2020 11:07

Hi. I always take my arvs at 20:00 but sometimes i take tuem at 23:00. Is that ok? If it bad how can it affect me

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 16:00

Hello,

The time is set because tablets have a half life and threshold inside our bodies. So if I am suppose to take treatment for two times a day, at 08am and 8pm for example this means that the pill has ended in my body by 8pm, hence I have to top up with another pill .


So if you miss a pill by 20 minutes or so, its not a train smash especially if it happens now and then, but you must make sure that it does not happen everyday, because you will now confuse the body. 

Taking your ARVs at the same time will help lower the HIV infection in your blood. Messing this up will potentially increase the infection.

Hello Gugu,

Have you been having unprotected sex? If so, please get a pregnancy test to check or go to your nearest clinic to check. 

There are people who can fall pregnant even when using amaphilisi. Not that many people but some.

Another reason could be that your period is irregular. Go to the clinic

Hi, I have a question. I got my period for the first time 3 years ago, and I still have irregular periods, and end up not getting it months at a time. I am still young so I am really worried.

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 15:49

Hi there,

It is quite normal for a period to be irregular for a while after starting it, especially as a teenager. This could just be because your body might not be ovulating regularly yet so I wouldn't worry too much.

If you would like to get checked though, please visit your nearest clinic.

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 15:47

Hi Basa,

It sounds like you need to develop study habits that will motivate you to study. A major reason why you might be tired whenever you study is because you are not doing it in a way that is interesting or in a way that holds your attention.

Hi there,

This sounds very uncomfortable. It sounds like you might have an STI but it is very difficult to tell based on the information you gave me. 

(Read more on STI's here: https://bwisehealth.com/article/sti-questions-all-the-answers-)

Hi doc,is it safe to have sex under the age of 16 or 18 and can we use unprotected sex and I've been saying to my boyfriend that I'm not ready for sex yet but he would not listen so what do I do to make him understand because I am too young

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 15:39

Hi there,

Firstly, your boyfriend needs to respect the fact that you are not ready for sex. If you have explained this to him and he is still forcing you, then please leave him. (Please read more here: https://bwisehealth.com/article/sex-on-the-mind-are-you-ready)

The legal age for consent in South Africa is 16 years old which means that people from that age can give consent to having sex. When it comes to safety, it doesn't matter what age you are- you need to practice safe sex by using condoms as well as another form of contraception. Unprotected sex is very dangerous.

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 15:29

Hi there,

It's very important that you sit down and think about what you really want. You definitely can't have them both or lead them on, especially the baby daddy as it is unfair. 

Why are you still attracted to your ex? Be honest with yourself and make a choice especially for the sake of your child.

Hey I have a problem, when I'm doing a sex with my partner I feel pain in my vagina, and I don't ejaculate

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 April 2020 15:21

Hi Zizi, 

The first thing to make sure of is that your vagina is not dry during sex as this can cause pain. Sex should be a pleasurable experience so make sure your partner knows what you like and don't like. This might help with you reaching an orgasm. (read more here: https://bwisehealth.com/article/masturbation-and-orgasm-touch-play)


You should not be feeling any pain when having sex. If this continues, please visit the doctor or clinic.
