Q:

What are some risks considered before my doctor prescribes birth control pills for me?

A:

Your doctor will review your health history and help you decide whether the birth control pill is a safe option for you. Things that could prevent the pill from being recommended include smoking, your age, your body weight, and your family history. If you are considering taking birth control pills, talk to your doctor about a risk assessment before the prescription is written.

Q:

What is vascular dementia?

A:

Vascular dementia is a form of dementia which involves problems with the blood supply to the brain. This can happen after a stroke, and you may notice the signs of dementia come on suddenly. With dementia caused by Alzeimher's disease, you may notice a gradual decline in brain function, but with vascular dementia there is a more 'stepped' progression of the changes in brain function.

Q:

When should an atrial fibrillation patient stop taking their blood thinner?

A:

If you are experiencing a bleed from your gut or large volume bleeds are times when you should visit hospital, and at that time your blood thinner may have to be stopped for a short period of time in order to control the bleeding. Minor bleeds such as bruises that you find on your skin or cuts that won’t heal as quickly, or minor oozes for example while you’re brushing your teeth are not reasons to stop taking your blood thinner.
