I just started new birth control and I am spotting. Is this normal?
Spotting or minor bleeding between cycles during the first few months of a new birth control is normal. To avoid continued spotting or bleeding, be sure to take the pill at the same time each day. If the spotting increases or bleeding becomes heavier, consult with your physician.
What is a glucola test?
Also known as the oral glucose tolerance test, a glucola test screens for gestational diabetes, a type of diabetes that can develop late in pregnancy. The test is typically given between the 24th and 28th week of pregnancy. To take a glucola test, the patient drinks a sweetened liquid called glucola. This liquid is then absorbed into the body, causing the blood glucose levels to rise and allows the physician to test how the body metabolized the liquid through a blood sample.
