Thank you for asking this interesting question Hazel, I am sure many patients are keen to know as well.

If you remembered some chemistry from your school days, iron oxidises, or rusts. So the longer the iron or the lining has been in your body, the more likely it will "rust" inside.

It is absolutely normal to have brownish or even black colour menses on the first few days. But of course if you are worried, you can see a GP or Gynae to have it checked.

Take care!

Thank you M. for your interesting question.

I see that you have taken a lot of steps to try to deal with the problem. That is assuming that it is a problem in the first place. Because some people just are born sad and most people do not know their "purpose" in life until much later in their lives. Comparing ourselves with other people causes a lot of our suffering.

Reading about something and understanding it is absolutely different from doing it. You should see a psychologist for long term therapy. 

Take care and hope that you find some hope.

Thank you for asking this interesting question. Your medical ID is supposed to keep critical information, such as drug allergies and main medical diagnoses.

I think "KLACID and AVELOX ALLERGY + your biodata + blood group" might be the only things that can fit.

Children feeding can be rather variable from day to day and if they are sick also can be quite different. 

To answer your question properly though, we need the following information such as the sex, weight, race of the baby as well as the type of milk. Also relevant medical history.

A sudden drop in feeding can be due to many factors and sometimes they can be sick and need to see a GP/PD. Whereas sometimes could be simple things like change in the caregiver or the nipple.

Assuming the child is average in singapore, assuming a weight of about 5.5kg, they will require 120-150ml/kg of formula milk daily. The feeding works out to be quite within the range. 

Also babies sometimes can have short periods of growth spurts when they drink a lot and some periods when they drink lesser.

If you are still facing problems, we should have a look at the child to figure out.

Top Questions


I've just discovered that I am pregnant (and could be at week 6). Unknowingly, I have worn waist tight pants and tight clothings during this period. Will this cause harm to the growing fetus? 

I've just ended my first month of birth control pills (Mercilon). I started taking them the 5th day into my period cycle. I have been consistent in taking them and only took one of the pills an hour late. When should I take the first pill in the new pack? I would appreciate any other general advice and tips on how to take them effectively. Thank you!

I am 31 years old, exercise regularly, and have regular periods, but have not been successful when trying to conceive. Should I exercise less?
