What is an endometrial biopsy?
An endometrial biopsy is a way to look at a small sample of the uterine lining. Your physician can perform a biopsy in several ways:
- Using a straw-like device to suction a small sample of lining, which is fast and not very painful
Can I use hot tubs or saunas during my pregnancy?
It is best to avoid hot tubs and saunas during pregnancy, because high temperatures can pose some risk to your baby. There is some concern that elevated temperatures of 104 degrees (the temperature of a hot tub) can have adverse effects on a baby’s development, and we advise that bath water should be at a body temperature of 98.6 degrees or only slightly higher.
Can I go tanning or use spray tans while pregnant?
The effects of dihydroxyacetone (DHA), an ingredient in most spray tans, has not been proven either safe or unsafe. We do know that DHA can be absorbed in your bloodstream either through your skin or by inhaling the spray. In general, it is best to avoid spray tans until they have been specifically proven safe to use while pregnant.
