Q. Is it effective to determine the problem?

How is the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy done and is it effective to determine the problem?
A1actually it will come with three common symptoms such as : positive pregnancy, abdominal pain or cramp, and bleeding. if you're happened to feel one of those symptoms, i'll suggest you to go see your ob-gyn specialist, then the doctor will do the physical examination on you, and will confirm the diagnosis with ultrasound.
A2first of all you come with pregnancy signs, then a blood or urine sample confirms it. in an ultrasound you see there's no fetus in the uterus, and if the the egg is visible you may see it on the fallopian tubes. rarely it can occur in the abdominal area, and this is bad.
A3Generally your doctor will check for pelvic and check for your pain and mass in fallopian tube or ovary. The further tests are taken to confirm after physical examination, as physical checking will not confirm it. Other important tests are ultrasound and blood tests and are effective.

Q. In which month of pregnancy it's possible to determine gender of the fetus?

A1following marin's question - is there a difference when it comes to twins?
A2thanks :-)
A3its usally done in the second trimester,or about 4 months.

Q. how do i determine what is the right weight i need to be? i know there is a way to calculate it, an equation

, what are the parameters in it ?
A1I don't mean to burst any bubbles, but BMI is definitely not a good way to determine what weight you should be. If you considered that a body builder or a professional athlete is considered obese under BMI standards then you would know what I mean. Here is an article about it I found on Medical News Today: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/49991.php
A2The ideal body weight is usually determined by the body mass index, or BMI: it is calculated as weight (kg)/[height (meter)* height (meter)]


When using the US units it is calculated as

weight (lb)*703/[height (in)* height (in)]
or
weight (kb)*4.88/[height (feet)* height (feet)]

The normal BMI (for normal adults) is 18-25.

Other indicators of overweight and it's resultant health risk are waist circumference [In adults with a BMI of 25-34.9 kg/m2, a waist circumference greater than 102 cm (40 in) for men and 88 cm (35 in) for women is considered high risk] and body fat percentage.

Q. My friend is on a crash diet and is determined to lose 10 kilograms in a month.

My friend is on a crash diet and is determined to lose 10 kilograms in a month. She either eats very little or nothing at all. She doesn’t even drink enough of fluids and her skin has become sallow. She complains of stomach pain every now then. The worst part is that, she has started getting depressed and refuses to have a bath also for two days at a stretch. I was wondering if all these symptoms were due to her poor diet. Can someone please suggest how I may help her regain her original state of mind?
AThis is very common in women and your friend should have a regular meal intake with a well- balanced diet. Foods rich in vitamins and minerals can sustain the body and improve memory problems. A diet with plenty of fish is not fattening and the same goes for any white lean meat. Amino acids are also necessary in such cases but additives should be avoided.
