Pregnancy and welfare office question.?
I'm currently a 16 year old girl living in California. I recently discovered I was pregnant after getting raped. I live in a family where communication is an issue and I have a teratoma in my ovary that prevents me from having a successful and healthy birth. I heard a rumor that an underaged girl can walk into a welfare office, state that she is underaged and request to terminate a pregnancy, and the welfare office will pay for it free of charge. Is this rumor true? Please help me I need answers
This is true however you have to have been on welfair... However if you are on medical you should be covered... You should go check out your local plan parenthood for further information... The welfair office dosnt do anything besides pay for it you have to already have been on it... Good luck and im sorry about your recent happenings...

kidney disease /sweating?
I'm a 57 year old female with a history of kidney failure 1 1/2 years ago. Internist did a lot of bloodwork but no relief from constant sweating at night. I have one ovary and had a hysterectomy 20 years ago with the removal of right ovary due to teratoma.
Sounds like you're menopausal. Hormone replacement will deal with the sweating, if that's the way you want to go.

my md found a teratoma on my right ovary
i am going to have surgery in a few weeks
i am scared never had any kind of surgey
any suggestions or comments will be helpfull
I too have had this surgery...and yes any surgery can be scary. You will probably be given something to relax when you first arrive at the hospital and put to sleep during the surgery. Laparoscopy is a very easy surgery with minimal pain afterwards. Having a tooth pulled is in my opinion worse.
In the days leading up to your procedure:
Do not take aspirin, aspirin-containing products, or anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen) for one week before the procedure
Arrange for a ride to and from the procedure
Do not eat or drink for at least 8 hours before the procedure
During Procedure -
The tissue that is removed will be examined in the lab during your procedure. If the testing shows evidence of cancer, the ovary or ovaries that the cyst came from may be removed.
Anesthesia – This depends on the type of procedure done. General is used for open surgery, and general or local is used for laparoscopic surgery.
Description of the Procedure - There are two methods to remove an ovarian cyst: laparoscopic surgery and open surgery. The method used depends on the type and condition of the cyst being removed. Open surgery is often done for larger cysts.
Laparoscopic surgery: A very small incision is made in the lower abdomen just below the navel. Through this incision, the surgeon inserts a laparoscope, which is a thin, lighted tube. Carbon dioxide gas is pumped into the abdomen, to inflate it and make it easier for the surgeon to view the organs. The laparoscope is then used to locate the cyst. Once located, one or two more tiny incisions are made, through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove the cyst. Depending on the situation, the surgeon may send the removed tissue to the pathology lab for immediate examination. Once the removal of cyst(s) (and, possibly, ovary or ovaries) is complete, the surgical tools are removed and the incisions are closed with stitches or clamps.After Procedure – IV fluids, medications
How Long Will It Take?
Will It Hurt?
Anesthesia prevents pain during surgery. However, you may have abdominal pain or discomfort for 3-4 days after laparoscopic surgery
My suggestion is to try and not focus in the surgery for the next few weeks. Anxiety will make you feel worse. If this becomes a problem mention it to your doc and he prescibe an anti-anxiety med. Good luck Dear.
