Not every time, but sometimes when I eat, I start to get hiccups and then experience pain in my upper chest area. I then feel that I have a lot of mucus to spit up. I have Tourette Syndrome and I turn my head to the left a lot and have neck and face twitches. I am sometimes stressed when I am eating a meal, but not all the time.

I was recently diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure and extremely high, off the charts FSH. I am 32 years old and was in the process of planning to increase our family when I was diagnosed. My doctor put me on a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), a combination pill of constant estrogen and progesterone to help with some symptoms I was experiencing. I know there is a very small chance of still getting pregnant while on HRT but my question is, is there one HRT better than another for improving my already slim chances of pregnancy?

I get migraines during my period. I have tried taking a pain killer like paracetamol but that does not help. I am usually very tired during my period. Is there anything I can do to help balance my hormones? I do not get migraines when I am pregnant.

My daughter’s college roommate just informed her that she had a bacterial infection. She was having abdominal pain which brought her to the doctor. What is the risk factor for my daughter?
