Dear Fitness Expert,
I am a 36-year-old Brazilian mother of a 5-year-old child and would like to have my second baby. The problem is that in 2000 I broke my left knee and later found out I had osteopenia (a phase before the osteoporosis). Later I also had a rib fracture while I was coughing during a cold episode. It has been treated with calcium and vitamin D supplements and it has shown to be stable so far.
I'm 5 feet, 4 inches. I'm not sure what I weighed before I was pregnant, but I was slender (usually a size 4).
Hi. I'm 31 years old, my husband and I are both planning to have kids soon. We've been trying for the last 3 months of our 3 year marriage to have a baby but unable to do so.
Question -- most articles refer to nutrition for women. Do you have any advise for men to assist women in conceiving? We would appreciate any information you may have.
Dear Fitness Expert,
Hello. I have a 2-month-old baby, and started back at the gym. It's okay'ed to do anything as far as exercising with my doctor. I would like to know if this routine sounds good. Do you think I'll start to see a difference? I know it takes a while to get back into shape. I go to the YMCA 4 times a week. I usually start on the elliptical machine for 20 minutes, then I go do the resistance machines.
I have had a yeast infection throughout my entire pregnancy. My doctor has tested me for STD's and all are negative. He has prescribed metro gel to me. I have used this every few months. I am now on my 32 week and am using this prescription every other week.
Is there something stronger I can use or something I can change or do differently to help?
