Patient discussion about count

Q. When do you start counting your pregnancy? I want to know if after your last period you start counting your months of pregnancy.

A. so many doctors are counting from your last menstrual day.
so if you had your last menstrual period on 30 october 2008, and today is 5 december 2008, and you check yourself is positively pregnant -- it means you are 5 weeks pregnant already.

Q. how do i teat my no sperm count? i do not have a live sperm,how can i treat and have live sperm count

A. The treatment is done only at specialist centers, and consists first of evaluation of the reason for this condition (called azoospermia). If an anatomical malformation is found, it may be corrected, as well as medical conditions, and in some cases, direct extraction of sperms from the testes (called MESA) enables in-vitro fertilization.

Q. what is the counting diet? when you count your calories of every meal during the day? why is it so papular?

A. because you get so frustrated of counting calories all the time that you rather skip meals :)
yes it's counting calories, and it's popular because at the end our body cannot defy the laws of thermodynamics- if you eat 4000 calories a day and use only 3000, the rest will transform into fat. and in this diet it doesn't matter what you eat as long as you don't go over the calorie level you decided. not always a healthy diet if done without someone supervising it.
