Determine If You Are Pregnant

Pregnancy Testing is required to help you determining whether you are pregnant or not. Otherwise, some women get the test to rule out their pregnancy prior to medical treatment or fertility treatments.A woman can get the test either by taking a blood test or urine test. If you are taking a blood test, you need to spend more money than taking a urine test. It is because blood tests are more sensitive and more costly. Thus, most women prefer taking a urine test to taking a blood test. Every pharmacy sells urine tests and it simply needs placing a urine sample on either disk or a stick. The main objective taking the test is to determine if you are pregnant.

Determine If You Are Pregnant

Pregnancy Testing should be taken as quickly as possible if you get some pregnancy symptoms. The first symptom or sign is missing your period. It can be the most obvious symptom of pregnancy. Then, you can take pregnancy testing as soon as possible. The second symptom is breast tenderness. You can notice it when you are doing some activities such as getting dressed, doing exercises, taking a shower, or even trying to go to sleep.Breast tenderness happens because your body is preparing your breasts to produce milk for breastfeeding. The third symptom is soreness in nipples. Your nipples may become much darker in color. The fourth symptom is fatigue. When you feel easily tired than normal, you can consider takingPregnancy Testingimmediately. The fatigue is caused by the changes of your body and the increasing level of your hormones. What is more, the symptom includes starting to go to sleep much earlier or getting much harder to wake up in the morning. Another symptom is you get more frequent urination.The more frequent urination happens because there are extra body fluids produced and processed by kidneys and bladder.

Pregnancy Testing has several names such as early pregnancy test (ept), home pregnancy test (hpt), pregnancy test (pt), rabbit test, and home test. Many women tend to take the test on their own because there is no risk occurs to the test. If you get a blood test, you can take it about ten days after ovulation. Meanwhile, if you take a urine test, you can take it around fourteen days after ovulation. The result of can be either positive or negative. Furthermore, it is advisable to get Pregnancy Testingby the help of a doctor or a midwife as well.

An Overview Brief Of Chemical Pregnancy

Every woman want a baby. Have you ever heard about a chemical pregnancy? It is considered as a medical term which refers to a very early miscarriage. If you have this type of loss, you will find out that it occurs before or even right around when you would expect your period. Otherwise, if you have tried very early pregnancy testing at home, a chemical pregnancies may not be an unfamiliar term. Early pregnancy tests can provide you with an accurate positive result before you expect your period. Afterwards, the pregnancy fails. In short, if you never had early pregnancy tests, you might never know that you were pregnant. The following details give you a brief overview of chemical pregnancy.

Chemical Pregnancy

There are several things that cause a chemical pregnancy. The first one is luteal phase defect. The second one is chromosomal disorders. The third one is because of hormonal issues. The fourth one is because of any problems with the lining of uterus. The fifth one is because of some infections. What is more, structural abnormalities within the uterus can be also the cause of chemical pregnancy. In short, chemical pregnancies are not the result of things you have done. If you are suffering from chemical pregnancies, you need to see your doctor or your midwife right away. You might be required to get some medicinal therapies. The symptoms of chemical pregnancies include having vaginal bleeding no longer after you get a positive pregnancy test. Somehow, a chemical pregnancy is very annoying. In one case, after you take an early pregnancy test and it shows the result that you are pregnant, you will get excited at once. Then, several days later you get your period and your doctor or your midwife tells you that it was just chemical pregnancies.

The bleeding caused by chemical pregnancies can be accompanied by more cramps than usual. In addition, the bleeding after a chemical pregnancy is usually even lighter than your usual period. The recovery might not be painful as long as you consult to your doctor right away. Most doctors will suggest you to simply go ahead and try again. If you get chemical pregnancy, there is no need to burry yourself in a deep misery since it happens too just to get attached to the pregnancy. You need to control your emotions and try to give the right emotional responses.So, you had better decide to try again and not to be too sad.

Baby Feeding Bottle Tips

There are two things that make a baby. The first is sleeping, and the second is feeding. In baby’s life, sleeping is as important as feeding. On the same hand, both of them are also complicated. However, feeding baby can be considered as more complicated than to make the baby sleeping. That is somehow true, for sometimes a mother just can’t breastfeed their baby because of many reason that the baby should feed from the bottle. Baby Feeding Bottle is what I am going to talk about here, and I think I have several tips in Baby Feeding Bottle which may bring benefits to you, as parents.

In you want to feed your baby, the very first thing that you have to do it to sit your baby up, or cradled them in your arms. According to the NICU, if you are baby feeding bottle, the baby’s position depends on the time the baby born. If you are bottle feeding a preemie, you should sit them up, for preemie babies tend to be very sleepy when feeding. So, sit your baby on your lap, use your hand to support their head and shoulders. On the other hand, the babies born at term are okay to feed in your arms. While you are feeding the baby, make sure you’re the other hand id holding the bottle and supporting the chin and cheeks to make the baby get good seal on the nipple.

Secondly, when you want to Baby Feeding Bottle your baby, make sure you do mouth exercise for that you can perform to your baby to help them get prepared for feeding. You are recommended to circle their lips with your fingers and let them move their lips. You can also stoke their chin to get the same effect. Moreover, you can also squeeze the baby’s cheeks gently together.

Then, another thing which is also important both in Baby Feeding Bottle as well as breastfeeding it to keep the pace of the baby. Thus, make sure you pause feeding them for moment to let them breath freely. Sometimes, your baby will gags, and find trouble in breathing as well.

Besides knowing how to bottle feeding your baby appropriately, you should also keep their bottle and nipples clean. Cleanliness is indeed important. And to keep it clean, do not forget to wash them in hot or warm water to clean the bacteria and to remove the dirt as well. You can brush smoothly the baby bottle with baby bottle brushes

The Best Baby Bottles come in a huge variety of styles. What is more, some bottles are already claimed that the gas has been reduced and the bottles can provide more natural feeding. Actually we cannot get the reliable and independent evidence that the newer designs are much better than traditionally shaped bottles. If you consider about your baby health, you should ensure that the baby bottle used is free from some hazardous chemical plasticizers. The Best Baby Bottles are the ones which have no health problem risks. One of the most common bottle designs is glass bottles. The bad things about glass bottles are they are easily to break and very heavy. In addition, several bottles are also sometimes designs to use liners, disposable bags, and drop-in. If you have a great concern of the environmental impact of throwing away the bags, you may not use this particular bottle. There are several tips you can follow to get the best baby bottle for your baby.

Carbon Fiber Composite

For those who have been dealing with modification of cars or motor cycle, I am sure that they already know about what is called as Carbon Fiber Composite. However, I am not sure that most of them know about what really Carbon Fiber Composite is. So, for those people who want to not only use this composite but also want to know more about it, I am here to explain about what it really is. So, what is carbon fiber composite? Carbon fiber composite refers to a thin fiber that is famously known for its strength. This kind of material has been used widely for supporting composite material such as graphite reinforced polymers, and this is why this material is called as carbon fiber composite. The Carbon Fiber Composite is famous for its strength even though, as we have known it all along, this kind of fiber is the thinnest fiber used to support other composite.

People who have been dealing with motor cycle and car modification know better about the importance of this composite. Because of the fact that this kind of composite is study and thin, they like to use it as the body of the car so that the car will be able to run fast due to its light-weighted material while also giving them the strongest protection of the car. In fact, according to people who have been using this material, and of course according to the scientist who have been doing a lot of tests for the development of Carbon Fiber Composite, they state that this composite is even lighter than aluminum and much stronger than steel. It is really amazing, is not it?

Carbon Fiber Composite

Having such qualifications, I am sure that most of you have already expected that the price of this substance will not be cheap. Of course it is! This compound is also known as one of the most expensive compound. However, I am pretty sure that people who really want to have a strong but light compound will be sure that every penny that they spend for this compound will be worth what they will get from the Carbon Fiber Composite. In fact, because of the advantages that we can get from this composite, this composite has been widely used in a lot of industries such as aerospace and even in sail boats. So, if you want to get a strong but light-weighted composite for your car, this will be your thing.

Are These Medicinal Compounds Safe?

Medicine. The word does carry a long history of pharmaceutical industry which went way back to the ancient time. It is said that the word pharmacy has its root from the Greek pharmakon, which by happen also means exactly the two opposite, antidote or medicine, and poison. Little wonder then that even at these present days people are having two different opinions about the medicinal compound found in any kind of medicines. The compound, by the very fact that it is chemical, may thus present blessing and threat to the patients at the same time.

And for such double-edge sword the medicinal compound always carries, some people seek to avoid it all together and choose any alternative cure or medicine available. More often than not, such alternative medicine means herbal mixture or some kind of organic compound which these people believe to have nothing sort of chemical substance as its ingredients. Apart from the fact that such saying of the organic mixture is really all organic, to some degree is also debatable, what is apparently unnecessary is to take such an extreme level to avoid all the chemical compound to be found in the medicines.

Now, of course this is not at all to say that you could then freely consume everything chemical as your medicines. What it is to say more is that you need to be wiser in consuming the medicinal compound even though it has been prescribed for your illness. Just remember that there are developing numbers of cases for prescribed medicine addiction. And you don’t need to be a medical genius to guess that some of the cause may have anything to do with the prescribed medicine’s chemical compound. And of this, the wisest thing to say is just not to take everything over, both in reaction and consumption. Then, everything may indeed be safe.

Household Chemical Compound : How to Deal with?

If you are running over managing your own house, cleaning and everything, you certainly have been running all over with any chemical compound embedded in the household cleaning products. Mopping the floor, for instance, is one of the easiest examples in which you have been using certain chemical compound to make your flooring as shiny as it is new. And for the sake of further example, washing dishes is another apparent instance where you all relies on another kind of chemical compound to make your plates and glasses as clean as ever.

Now, if all this chemical compound seems as natural as cleaning or washing ever, why is it with all the fuss? Not to say about any fuss actually; it is more like to say something about those compounds you have been constantly exposed daily. Of course, the very first thing you need to do is to develop some kind of awareness that this compound is, indeed, chemical. By that it means, some potential that the substance may be toxic, though not at all lethal, by the constant or everyday use may act as the best precaution you need to keep in your mind.

If such cautious act has been set in your mind, it is just the natural thing to do if you want to reduce the level of your exposure with any chemical compound in or around your house. Needless to say, to completely avoid using the chemical compound is not even possible at all. How do you keep your floor or plates and glasses clean by then? But, those mosquito repellents, sprays or lotions, are of the few things you could begin considering to use wisely, right? See, this is not such a fuss. This is, however, to make any of you all the wiser to use the chemical compound which, like it or not, is always present to some degree.

What Would You Do with Chemical Compound in Food Additives?

Everyone needs food, that is just the fact and let just face it bravely. The problem is this: most of your, probably even favorite, foods come from the industry. This means, many of them have been manufactured with any chemical compound that often acts as additive. From the point of view of the industry, this additive compound is everything that is necessary. They need something to make the food last longer just to get them sold, and chemically manufactured compound which could make the products stay a few days longer, at least longer enough for the customers’ hands to reach or grab them before putting them in their shopping cart, touches the basic problem of their survival and collapse, as an industry.

Little wonder then that most of food industries are more than ready to do as what seem as blatant lies by saying their products carry no such thing as chemical additive compound or that all of their canned products are as natural as nature herself! Yet, despite the obvious lies and persistent campaigns to tell the lies through many advertisements, that is just how the food industry could ever survive.

And of these lies, the food additive compound which has been inserted into the food products, is not without the consumers not knowing anything about it too. Just ask every single adult consumer who happens to be in any store and shop for any food product: all of them would have been aware about the presence of chemical compound, or even compounds really, that they also buyalong with the food products they put in the cart. And thus, yes, the problem seems to round back to you all over again: would you still buy such products or you would care enough to look for much natural or organic products, albeit the rareness such latter products can be found in the market?

Dietary Supplements and the Chemical Compound Inside

Almost everyone of you is familiar with dietary supplements. In fact, many, if not most already, may have already consumed or using any supplementary product as your daily intakes. As familiar you are with the dietary products themselves, certainly you also are equally familiar with the chemical compound usually found or used as one of the ingredients of your dietary supplement products. Of this very problem, some people may find that they have been in split, if not already deversed, agrements. Though most, or all, may agree that such compound found in the supplement products are chemically manufactured, even more would find in disagreement in the danger of such unnatural substances.

The first group of people would have been arguing that such chemically manufactured compound is not at all dangerous if we employ careful control in the intake of such substances. By this it means, these people are saying that such compound may be dangerous alright, but it is not of such danger that they could not manage to. The other group may find themselves in another tip of the scale, and probably even much further still. This compound, they may say so, is not natural. And everything that is not natural has never been to any good.

Thus, this group of people would likely to take much precautionary steps for not taking anything having any chemical compound inside. The third group of people may, almost literally, hope for consuming any chemical compound in the supplementary diets. Technology, they may say, has been blessing modern society with instant processes: and these usually means manufactured. Nature may be healthy, but no one seems to deny the fact the she is also a little bit slow in everything. Technology, on the other hand, is speeding up everything and thus, as far as dietary supplement is concerned, getting either slimmer or fatter,all quicker.

The Chemical Compound in Many Cosmetic Products

Living in the great advancement of technological era is not without its cost. When everything around you suddenly turns to either electronic and or plastic, at that same moment, some of the most dangerous chemical compound products emerge and you just have to live with them all. Take cosmetic products, for example. Almost all of these cosmetic products contain one chemical compound and even, most often than not, more dangerous compounds. And at some point or another, every single one of cosmetic customers, you included, does already know about this fact, or at least, they have either assumed or thought about it so.

By the very reading of the products’ ingredients, of which most people would readily admit that they know nothing of the meaning because of the strangest compound listed there, most or all of these people would have correctly guessed still that the compound is everything that is chemical. Now, the problem is that, since these cosmetics are also daily products, it would have been the same with saying these people, you also, have to live with such chemical, and mostly dangerous, compound in their lifetime!

The moment these people use their hair treatment products, certainly they are washing their hair with chemical compound. Also, when they are washing their bodies with soaps, spraying their bodies with perfumes, even when cleaning or washing their clothes, all these daily activities must involve some chemical compound at some point and another. Likewise, the cosmetics products that have been made specifically for babies. Lotions, shampoos, soaps, you name and continue the list; every one of these baby cosmetics is fully manufactured using some chemical compound, even the complex compounds. Of course, this is not to say that we have to then live in greater fear than ever. It is to say, however, that we just have to be more careful in life.

Different Types of Bonds in Chemical Compound

Almost every student, at least one who ever follows chemistry subject, knows what a chemical compound is. To say in the simplest and most common definition, a compound, chemically speaking of course, is that of a chemical substance, and a pure one that is, which has two, or could be more of, different chemical elements. These elements, which are bonded together to make the chemical compound, can always be further separated into much simpler substances by the means of the proper chemical reaction, or reactions. Thus, any chemical compound must have quite a unique and fixed chemical structure. That is to say, the compound must have the exact ratio of atoms and every one of which will be held in place by such spatially defined arrangement of chemical bonds. Take water, for example (and as also the easiest example of a chemical compound being around plentifully in this planet). In the light of chemistry, this liquid material is seen to have been built by two different kinds of elements: two of hydrogen atoms and one of oxygen atom which are held together in such specific relation called the bond.

Chemical Compound model hydrogen bonds in water

The chemical bonds, however, are of different types. One chemical compound can be called having a molecular bond which is covalent in the form. The prefix co- means that of joint or associated, while valence means the number of bonds (usually the electrons) one specific atom can form with the other atoms. Of this valence, chemistry knows a chemical compound which could have those atoms that are univalent or monovalent, thus only able to form only one covalent bond, or those of divalent atoms which could form either two sigma-bonds to two completely different atoms or one sigma-bond and one phi-bond to one single atom. Another type of bond which could make a chemical compound is that of the ionic bond. This specific bond is made when two opposite charged ions form an electrostatic attraction to each other. To be ionic, the bond is usually made of a metal, or a cation in chemical term, and a nonmetal element called the anion. The important thing about this chemical knot is that there is no chemical compound which can be made of pure ionic bonding. That is to say, all ionic bonding has, to same degree, covalent bonding. Hence, this bond is to be understood as that of a bonding in which the ionic character is simply greater than its covalent character.

The next bond which could make a chemical compound is that of the metallic one. When two different metallic phenomena occur and combine together, metallic bonding rises: delocalization of electrons and the deficiency of electrons. Of course, there are many metallic physical properties which are to be accounted for the bond. These include the thermal property, malleability, luster, ductility, strength, opacity and eletrical conductivity. The last type of bond which could make a chemical compound is the complex or dipolar bonding. Known also as coordinate or dative covalent bonding, the structure resembles that of 2-center, 2-electron in covalent bonding type where the two of those electrons are coming from the same atom. The very term of dipolar bonding is much more common in organic chemistry to name a chemical compound such as amine oxides where the basic amine element becomes the donor of two electrons to one oxygen atom. The very last thing needed to say about this chemical compound is that it is to be differentiated from those of pure chemical elements even if these pure elements do have molecules consisting of multiple atoms of single element. For the latter, chemistry uses diatomic or polyatomic molecules instead of chemical compound.

Tetracycline is defined as an antibiotic which is able to fight bacteria in the body. Commonly, people use tetracycline to treat several kinds of bacterial infections such as gonorrhea, urinary tract infections, chlamydia, and acne. Before taking this antibiotic or using this medication, you need to find out whether you have any allergic to tetracycline or other similar medicines. You are not allowed to use this medication if you have any allergic. What is more, you need to see a doctor and tell him or her if you have liver disease or kidney disease. If you are suggested to use a specified dosage adjustment or get monitored, you need to follow it thoroughly. In one case, if you are planning to use tetracycline to treat gonorrhea, you will be tested by a doctor to make sure that you do not have kinds of sexually transmitted disease. There are some side effects caused by tetracycline we need to know.


The common side effects of tetracycline are diarrhea, skin reactions to sunlight, fever, and cramps. Besides, there are also some serious side effects of tetracycline because of the compound of it such as blurred vision, watery diarrhea, and unusual headaches. Several side effects which occur rarely are hair loss, allergic reactions, and irritation of the esophagus. Tetracycline is sold as generic tetracycline tablets or capsules. In addition, it is also sold under a variety of brand names suchlike Sumycin. You have to get emergency medical help right away if you have these particular signs such as hives; swelling of your face, lips, throat, or tongue; and difficulty breathing. It is advisable to stop using tetracycline if have some serious side effects such as severe headache, fever, body aches, fly symptoms, severe blistering, urinating less, pale or yellowed skin, severe pain in your upper stomach which is also spreading to your back, loss of appetite, easy bruising, unusual weakness, and confusion.
