my sincere appologies to the gynea
I replied to a girl named scared. I was really worried about her, she could have had a ectopic(not sure if this is the right word) pregnancy, or so she thought. A friend of mine had the same symptoms, i was really scared fo her, since i am on my first pregnancy and can't image what it would be like if i have to loose my baby now, i was anctious for the doc to answer her question, this was no laughing matter. i just asked why the doc doesn't answer her question. i know you are busy doc, but i think you should probably get "students" good students off course ;-) to help out a bit. I think they should have 2 gynea's on this site to answer the urgent questions... no hard feeling intended on the gynea. And to anyone else who i might have been rude to in my answer, sorry, i didn't mean to be. i am a very direct person and doesn't always realise that what i say may hurt other people, this is a great site and i don't want to spoil it, so i am really sorry.

I think that the idea is to realise what the purpose of a forum such as this is. It is basically a site where people can obtain more information on problems. It is not a consulting service and it does not replace seeking medical attention. The questions asked are very brief summaries compared to the full assessment you haev when seeing a doctor. Therefore there are two different functions. The function of the forum is to provide basic advice, clarify some issues that may be hard to understand and to point people in the right direction. It cannot be used as an emergency service and any urgent or serious problems should be seen by a doctor.
