Patient discussion about daughter

Q. Will my daughter have endometriosis also? I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 15. Now, 15 years and many efforts later I finally have an adorable baby girl. Because I had such a bad experience with endometriosis, I'm a little worried- will she have endometriosis too? Is it genetic? Can I do something to prevent it?

A. Your daughter has higher chances to also suffer from endometriosis, but there's really nothing you can do to prevent it, so for the time being you shouldn't really worry about it. What you can do is to be more aware of the appearance of symptoms, so it can be diagnosed more quickly.

Q. I had one daughter and I believe that she is with ADHD.. This is Linda, I had one daughter and I believe that she is with ADHD. In about three weeks, my daughter is going to be 3 years old. She is very hyperactive and she can’t sit in a place even for 2 minutes. She’s just hitting every body around the house even when we go out in the playground or at relative houses. I just really don't know what to do any more. What do you think I should do? I am wondering if you can give me some advice!

A. diagnosing ADHD is done on older age then 3. It is important to understand that diagnosis of ADHD usually comes after the age of 6 -before that it can be a wrong diagnosis. even after the age of 6 it's not an easy diagnosis and hyperactivity can be caused by several other things. could be very active thyroid, but most of the time it's called - childhood :)
