Your Questions About Do Hcg Drops Go Bad After Opening

Thomas asks…

I’m 5 weeks pregnant with my first. Threatened miscarriage.?

I found out 6 days ago with a home pregnancy text. Same day i started bleeding bright red with mild cramping. I went to ER they found a cyst on my right ovary which they said was very common, they said my cervix was slightly open an rotated. they also had to give me a RH shot for my blood. 2 days later i went to the dr they checked my hcg levels to compare with the levels from the ER. that night i had some pretty intense cramping with very little bleeding after cramping stopped i pasted 2 pretty big clots. Went back to have levels checked again and they went from 9000 to 2000. They didnt say much but want me to come back in a week to have them checked again. For 2 days now i have had no cramping with very light dark brown blood mainly just on tp when i wipe. my question is is there any hope to carry baby to term.

Hcg Diet answers:

I am very sorry, but I think you should be prepared for possible bad news.

HCG levels should continuously rise. They do not decrease slightly and do not drop drastically. They continue to rise to maintain a pregnancy.

Your levels went from 9000 to 2000 –> am very sorry, this is not good.

Your best option is to speak to your doctor about all of this, we can’t tell you if there is any hope that you are still pregnant or if you are/have miscarried.

Am very sorry.

Michael asks…

Possible Miscarriage?

So Ya i was Cramping every now & then so on Monday i went to the ER and they gave me a Ultra Sound and they saw a Sac but nothing else so on Tuesday Morning i scheduled a Appt with the Gyno Tuesday Morning so i went there and they were not as worried!! I got blood taken for my hormone level count!! Took another Ultra Sound and the Doctor still couldnt see nothing but a Sac so she thought i was just earlier that we all thought!! So my Hormone Level was @ 51,460 on tuesday wello on Thursday i had to come back in to take another Hormone Level!! Well i came back on Friday to find out my Hormone Level Count went down to 48,000 So the Doctor told me that she was 99% positive i was i gonna Miscarry!! Well the thing is i dont get is that i havent bleed!!AT ALL !!my cramping has gotten alot better!! So i got to go back on Thursday to get another Hormone test done and i think on friday i am getting another Ultra Sound so i know how bad this looks right now!! But everyone please pray for us because i really want everything to work out!!

Hcg Diet answers:

If your levels continue to drop you are going to miscarry.

The reason you have not bleed yet is because you have to dilate and your cervix has to open, just like giving birth.

When your body terminates a pregnancy it stops producing HcG hormones. These hormones will start decreasing by half every 48 hours.

Just keep getting your levels checked.

Good luck.

Maria asks…

How can I motivate myself?

Hi everyone. I am an 18 year old wanting to get in the best shape of my life! I’ve recently had heart surgery, I was told last month that I was able to start exercising and that my heart was doing just
fine.I’ve tried to exercise,but I find it very difficult and hard since I have not exercised in 4 years due to my heart condition. My heart condition showed up when I was 14, my life changed, and the changed was very hard. I was not allowed to continue as a cheerleader to join sports,play with with my friends since I would get excited and that would do bad for my heart since it would make it beat at a faster rate/go running,be outdoors when heat was strong because it would burn my skin very badly due to the medication and many other things. My parents are not the type of people that you can be open with, they take everything the wrong way and are not very supported, as for the rest of my family members the same. At this age I was struggling a lot not only with my heart condition,but as a regular teen who has issues with school,friends and a broken heart. I just ended up in depression and I would just eat and eat,when I would eat it felt as if everything was better,but the pleasure lasted for a couple of minutes only. So it was up to me to make myself feel better, I pulled it off and here I am growing out of it. I found pictures of when I was in Middle school and I miss that body!!! so please help me find a solution? a motivation? and some great healthy diets? :} if personal experienced even better. Thank you so much!!♥

Hcg Diet answers:

What I’ve found that helps me stay motivated is seeing my weight go down on a daily basis. Earlier this year I was introduced to the hCG diet protocol. It was created by a Dr Simeons’ and his research can be found in a book called Pounds & Inches. This doctor discovered a way to lose weight and reset your metabolism. I’m currently on the diet now. You can lose up to a pound a day on this diet. I’m follow his protocol and I use hCG Drops. Follow my weight loss journey at www.Lovemyhcgdrops.blogspot.com

Mary asks…

Have you had an ectopic pregnancy?

If so, what week did you start feeling the symptoms? Was it obvious right away (aka when the pain started was it severe or was it subtle at first and got worse?). I’m in my 5th week and have had your typical minor cramping and thankfully no bleeding (have had 2 miscarriages) and am just wondering when the I won’t have to be worried about an ectopic anymore! Thanks!

Hcg Diet answers:

On Feb 14th (at 5 weeks) I had menstrual-style cramps and moderate bleeding. They drew blood and my HcG was really low (81) and I was told that I was miscarrying. They monitoed my HcG and it continued to rise. My bleeding stopped after about 4 days. I was positive that maybe they were wrong!

A few days later (Feb 24) the bleeding started again. The emergency room told me I was at the end of a miscarriage. My HcG was at 650.After a sonogram, they said my cervix was empty, not knowing much I went home. They missed something big.

Within 2 days of my ER visit (Feb 26) I went to the ER again with SEVERE cramping on my left side. UNBEARABLE pain!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t emphasize that enough. My pregnancy always felt normal, then bleeding/cramping, then the stabbing pain. All in progression. My HcG was at 857 the day it ruptured. They did a sonogram and I was rushed into emergency surgery for an ectopic rupture.

What you could be experiencing could be many things:

My doctors say some people do bleed a little normally.

However, it also could be a miscarriage or an ectopic.

Have you had your progesterone and HCG tested? That could give you answers. If it is dropping, you are most likely miscarrying. If it is rising, but NOT doubling every 2-3 days, you most likely are ectopic.

HOPEFULLY everything is fine Some cramping is normal. Red blood will be a bad sign.
I wish you luck. If it gets worse, get to the ER overnight or this weekend. They will check your cervix to see if it is open or closed. CLOSED is a great sign. Good luck. Email me if you need any info or support. Good luck!

Your Questions About Do Hcg Drops Go Bad

Susan asks…

wondering does hcg works?

DOES HCG REALLY WORK IM DETERMINE TO LOSE WEIGHT AND I HEARD ABT THE DROPS??? i want to try it sooooo bad

Hcg Diet answers:

The hcg diet is a scam because HCG does nothing for fat loss. It was a scam from the get go and doesn’t work any more than the other junk on the market like acai or green tea. Even if you manage to lose some weight from the diet alone you will only gain rebound fat because you’ve done nothing to change your eating habits. That will lead to yo-yo’ing until you finally learn that diets don’t work and the only way to lose fat and keep it gone is to make a lifetime commitment to proper eating habits. After all, staying slim only gets more difficult with age. So, you may as well make that commitment now and establish proper eating habits instead of trying an easy way that doesn’t work.

Check the following excerpts from the US National Institute of Health…the place where the doctors get their information regarding health research. And, if you can’t bring yourself to believe the science, visit your physician and find out for yourself. You’ll be wise to ignore the random strangers of unknown credibility with no references or citations who are simply credulous believers incapable of recognizing their own placebo effect.

Here’s what the experts have to say.

“In recent publications describing mostly well-documented double-blind studies authors largely reject hCG administration in dieting. Supporters of the hCG diet must prove the efficacy of this method in controlled studies according to the German Drug Law. Until then the opinion of the German steroid toxicology panel is still valid, that hCG is ineffective in dieting and should not be used.”
Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3609673

“Treatment of obesity with human chorionic gonadotrophin was shown to be of no better value than saline in a double-blind crossover study of weight reduction in obese subjects. There was also no significant difference in mood, hunger, or missed injections, and no apparent difference in adherence to diet when the two agents were compared. In contrast, a significant difference was found in the ability of subjects to lose weight in the first four weeks of the study in contrast with the second four weeks, no matter which agent was used. Thus, the initiation of a new therapeutic program, even using an inert agent, has a temporary benefit–a manifestation both of placebo effect and the Hawthorne effect.”

Mary asks…

hcg diet side effects?

I just started taking hcg drops and was wondering what kind of bad side effects could it cause. I am not worried about 500 calorie restriction. That’s no problem. Just curios as to the side effects. Any suggestions on how to make this diet work even better is appreciated.

Hcg Diet answers:

There are no side effects from the drops because the drops have such a tiny amount of hcg they won’t do anything including make you lose fat. They’re a scam…doesn’t everyone know that? And, the prescribed hcg diet is terrible…500 cal/day is awful by any standard.

The hcg diet is a scam because HCG does nothing for fat loss. It was a scam from the get go and doesn’t work any more than the other junk on the market like acai or green tea. Even if you manage to lose some weight from the diet alone you will only gain rebound fat because you’ve done nothing to change your eating habits.

Helen asks…

has anyone tried hcg drops?

I bought some hcg drops [the first ingrediant is hcg so i know they arent rip offs] and i was wondering if anybody had tried the diet? [hcgezdrops specifically] Are you really not starving despite only eating 500 calories? does it actually work? The dont exercise part kind of throws me off a bit.

Hcg Diet answers:

HCG is a phenomenal thing if done right. One thing you must remember is that while Phase 2 (weight loss phase) is amazing once you lose the weight Phase 3 is just as critical where you eat more but introduce carbohydrates and what not in small quantities. This helps reset your hypothalamus gland that controls your appetite.

I am not going to lie and tell you that this diet is 100% easy. While I have had no hunger issues you will ‘crave’ food that is bad for you for about the first 2-3 weeks. You have to stay committed and realize the difference between hunger and cravings. As far as the ‘apple day’ this is to help with a stall where you eat up to 7 apples (nothing else) in a day to break a plateau.

However, when you track your weight loss you should also buy a fabric tape measure and track your inches lost in your waist and where ever else you see fit. On your week(s) that you plateau and have limited weight loss you will see incredible loss in inches the reason is your body is catching up with your rapid weight loss to ensure you don’t have any loose skin.

I can tell you it is a life saver. My brother lost 116 lbs (in just 119 days!) and has kept it all off for over 2 years and my sister-in-law lost 158 lbs (in just 200 days) and has kept hers off for 18 months until gaining some back (which will happen when you get pregnant with your first child :) . My parents both did the diet as well (my mom lost 33 lbs in 50 days and my dad lost 22 lbs in 35 days). As for me I am on day 10 and have successfully lost 22.8 lbs.

Just remember once the weight comes off it is up to YOU to decide to live a healthier lifestyle to keep it off. I mean I know for me the fact that I ate unhealthy for a number of years is the reason I am needing to lose the weight so if I go back to that I will experience the same unhealthy lifestyle. It is all about getting your body use to a lifestyle change once you eat normal portions again.

Hope this helps!

Donna asks…

are slowly dropping HCG levels bad?

Hello everyone, i have some questions and concerns about my hcg levels.

on 4/22 – i went to the doctors for my 1st ob appointment, they did blood work, and my HCG levels were about 40,000

on 4/25 – i got a call for me to come back in because my progesterone levels were a little low, and they wanted to re check them.

on 4/26 the doctors office called me to go to the ER asap to get an ultrasound, my HCG levels were at 38,000. ultrasound was done, they seen a yolk sac heard no heartbeat tho. they said i was 6 weeks. they wanted me back in for more blood work…

on 4/29 my HCG levels were 35,000 . my dooctor started me on the progesterone, and wants me in tomorrow for more blood work and to be checked out.

Has this happened to anyone and did you have a healthy pregnancy? or did you miscarry?

i have no spotting or bleeding.

please give me any help or an experience you may have had. i am so worried, and scared. that everything wont be ok.

Hcg Diet answers:

While there is a point during pregnancy that HCG levels plateau and even fall, it is not usually this soon. That usually happens near the end of the first trimester (around 10-14 weeks) when the placenta is fully formed and functioning.

With HCG levels as high as yours, and being 6 weeks along, there should have been some cardiac activity seen if not heard. I do hope I’m wrong, but try not to get your hopes up. This may not end well.

Hang in there and good luck.

Your Questions About Do Hcg Drops Go Bad After Opening

Jenny asks…

The doctors said I am miscarrying cause my hcg levels dropped? Is it true?

I am 27yrs old and have been trying to get pregnant for 8 years. I only have one tube open so I only have a 50% chance of getting pregnat. I just found out I was pregnant on 10/26 for the first time ever, my last period was 9/20, and on 10/30 I went to the ER because I was spotting and my hcg levels were at 429 so the doctor told me check then again on Tues they dropped to 192 then today (Thurs) to 50. The nurse told me I miscarried or I am going to miscarry, and that my levels need to be 0. I have not bleed heavy just spotting and my breast are sore and back hurts. Will I bleed and miscarry? How do I know when I can start trying again? I am confused since i dont feel like I miscarried the baby! Please Help!

Hcg Diet answers:

It can take a little while, but you will probably have a heavy bleed and cramping and some clots, i am so sorry fo rthis u poor thing it must be dissapointing after trying so long! U need yoru body to get back to normal usually after yoru next proper period it will be ok to try again!
You should look into IVF if u are having problems, there are some less invasive way to help with pregnancy f u have problems!

Good luck and make sure you have a heat pack handy for the cramps and maybe some pain killers, it sometimes isnt too bad but sometimes it can be a bit painful! If u are concerned chat with teh doctor they may need to give youa d&c if its not leaving the body naturally!

Take care

David asks…

Pregnant with low HCG? HELP?!?

Hello all,
I just want to give you a little background first. I am 23 years old. My husband and I have had a successful/full term pregnancy almost 3 years ago and delivered with a C-section. We have been trying to conceive baby #2 for 22 months now. I have had the dye test to see if my tubes are open, and also had the lap surgery done to remove a LOT of horrible scare tissue. The fertility specialist explained to me that one tube is very high risk ectopic and the other is medium risk ectopic.
We decided to have IVF done and were scheduled for our first IVF cycle to start next month.
I was due for my period last monday ( Jan 28th). I started very lightly bleeding that day. I would change my tampon every 5-6 hours and would have like 2 drops of browning blood. It lasted light like this for 4 days (so i figured it was just a very light period). Well that weekend ( Feb 2nd-3rd) I started feeling very tired and nauseous. My hubs forced me to take a HPT although I swore I wasn’t pregnant. Both tests came back positive. On monday (Feb 4th) I had blood work done to verify the pregnancy, it too was positive. That night I have some mild cramping and light spotting of brown blood again.
The next day I met with a nurse in our WoWomen’sealth clinic (military base). She advised me to go to the ER because they did not have an Ultrasound machine in the clinic to see if this was an ectopic pregnancy. She marked me at 4 weeks and 5 days pregnant.
While at the hospital, they drew blood and did an ultrasound. They saw a cyst on my right ovary which explained the intense cramp/pain I felt on the right side, but said there was no evevidence of a pregnancy in either tube or uterus. Then the blood results came in…
He said my hCG level was 87.85 and that is was very low. They told me that I was most likely going to miscarry, unless it is just very early in the pregnancy. He told me to prepare to lose my baby, the baby my husband have been trying for for almost 2 years.
Im heart broken and confused.
Has anyone every gone through this? Is there a chance its still early and thats why my level is so low? I am supposed to have another blood work drawn on friday (feb 8th) to see if the number is going up or dropping.

Please share any good or bad experiences? I just want to know Im not alone going through this =’[

Hcg Diet answers:

Military here too my wife also did this same thing only she found out she was pregnant when she went in for gall bladder pain which she had gall stones. That being said her levels were at 67.84 and she actually had an ultra sound also don’t panic they would not see anything anyways because the fetus just implanted. 2 you can bleed brown from old blood. With any cyst you will have some discomfort because of the growing baby. They also did not see anything for my wife either. She is now 18 weeks 6 days. They just give information like that because they have no other information to give and to remind you in early pregnancy miscarriages can happen. I would not start to worry unless you start heavily bleeding with clots and have severe cramping. They really cant tell how many weeks you are considering they don’t have a correct measurement for the fetus. Relax, unless they can get a for sure measurement.

Robert asks…

I am 4-5 wks pg, poss ectopic, mass on ovary, nothing in uterus, hCG from 900-1300 in 48 hrs? Is this normal?

Hcg Diet answers:

I experienced an ectopic a few weeks ago-here’s my experience:

On Feb 14th (at 5 weeks) I had menstrual-style cramps and moderate bleeding. They drew blood and my HcG was really low (81) and I was told that I was miscarrying. They monitored my HcG and it continued to rise. My bleeding stopped after about 4 days. I was hopeful that maybe they were wrong!

On Feb 21, they did an sonogram and saw nothing in my uterus or tubes.

A few days later (Feb 24) the bleeding started again. The emergency room told me I was at the end of a miscarriage. My HcG was at 650.After a sonogram, they said my uterus was empty, not knowing much I went home. They missed something big.

Within 2 days of my first ER visit (Feb 26) I went to the ER again with SEVERE cramping on my left side. UNBEARABLE pain!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t emphasize that enough-it was the worst paine ever. My pregnancy always felt normal, then bleeding/cramping, then the stabbing pain. All in progression. My HcG was at 857 the day it ruptured. They did a sonogram and I was rushed into emergency surgery for an ectopic rupture.

I never had shoulder pain or anything even though that is a major sign. I honestly don’t think you have an ectopic but you are so smart to get it checked. Have they verified a fetus in your uterus yet?

Have you had your progesterone and HCG tested? That could give you answers.

If the HcG is rising and doubling every 2-3 days, that is a GREAT sign!

If it is dropping, you are most likely miscarrying.

If it is rising, but NOT doubling every 2-3 days, you most likely are ectopic.

HOPEFULLY everything is fine. Red blood will be a bad sign.

I was about 6 1/2 weeks when mine was discovered…I think the range is 5-8 weeks.

I wish you luck. If it gets worse, get to the ER overnight or this weekend. They will check your cervix to see if it is open or closed. CLOSED is a great sign. Good luck. Email me if you need any info or support. Good luck!

PS- you know your body. Trust your instincts and demand answers.

Let us know what happens!

Helen asks…

I’m about 5 weeks pregnant. I am cramping on my left side. I usually cramp on my left side before my period…

The cramping isn’t bad. It’s almost like growing pains. Sometimes I don’t even feel pregnant. Could this just be because the egg came from my left ovary and it implanted on the left side of my uterus or should I be worried about an ectopic pregnancy?
For any of you out there that have been pregnant before, have you ever felt this and everything turned out fine?

Hcg Diet answers:

Your Questions About Will Hcg Drops Go Bad

Ruth asks…

healthy pregnancy with dropping hcg?

I was tested on Thursday and my levels were 210 now today five days later my levels are 189. The doctor suggests a shot this Thursday to release cells from duplicating (to reduce risk of ruptured ectopic if its not going to naturally MC). Is there a chance of a healthy pregnancy even after mildly decreasing levels? I’m not comfortable with the shot unless I’m 100% sure it’s an ectopic that needs to be released or natural MC anyway. They saw nothing on abdominal or VUS last week.
Additional Details:
so really, should I just wait to see if I have another menstrual cycle, or not participate in the shot until they can confirm an ectopic? I have heard alot of people say they waited a few weeks later and then saw a little bean on a follow up US. I dont want to make the wrong decision!!

Hcg Diet answers:

This early in pregnancy, HCG levels should never go down. That is a bad sign. HCG levels are supposed to double or more every other day. If your levels were 210 on Thursday, then they should have been well over 840 five days later.

I’m sorry. :o (

As for what to do (take the shot or not), that is up to you. You can wait it out if you want to, but be aware of the signs of ectopic and get yourself to the ER immediately if you experience any of them.

Jenny asks…

Declining HCG – inevitable miscarriage?

My LMP was Oct 11 My next period is suppose to be this Sat Nov 8. I have a regular 28 day cycle. On Oct 22 I had severe stomach ache & light bleeding for 1 day. I went and saw my doc on Oct 29, she sent me for an ultrasound as she thought I had an ovarian cyst. The ultrasound tech asked me if I could be pregnant. I said it could be a possibility since we have been trying. She suggested I go home and take a pregnancy test as she could see “matter”. I went home & took 2. They instantly came back positive. I had a blood test Oct 31 & it came back positive too. My HCG was 3100. On Nov 3 my HCG was 3888. On Nov 5 it declilned to 2900 & my doctor said I am going to miscarry & it is not a viable pregnancy. She also said that it was not an etopic pregnancy as the ultrasound had shown my tubes clear. Is there any hope? I am not even 4 weeks pregnant yet as my first missed period would be this Saturday. Is there anything I can do? Does anyone or has anyone had this experience & can share their story with me?

Hcg Diet answers:

I had a tubal reversal in 2005 and I had to have my hcg levels checked as soon as the preg. Test came back positive. I had bad luck in the beginning. When I first went to the doctors they was where they should have been then 5 days later I went back they dropped real fast. That is not normal. Although I did loose the baby I now have 2 healthy ones here is what ur hcg levels should be while preg. They should double every 48 – 72 hrs.

* 3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
* 4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
* 5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
* 6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
* 7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
* 9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
* 13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
* 17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
* 25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
* Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
* Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml
I hope this helps you and my best wishes to you!

Hcg diet rules help ?????

I’ve been reading about the HCG diet online and read on one forum that you can’t have certain fruit with too much sugar. I know it’s suppose to be fat-free diet but I’d really like to know the specific restrictions other than just don’t eat crappy foods. Also, I was thinking of buying HCG pills from vitamin shoppe and was wondering if anyone has tried those? I would buy the drops but I honestly don’t trust buying something liquid online… Anyway, no need to tell me to not try to a diet and tell me I’m going to gain it all back I actually lost 15lbs using a different diet pill but it left me feelings extremely sluggish and despite my yo-yo dieting I’ve managed to keep those 15lbs off. I’m currently 143lbs and would like to be in the 120s before I go on vacation in a month.

Hcg Diet answers:

My friend did the HCG diet. She basically didnt eat anything you dont need to spend the money to anorexic the diet the HCG hormones come with is just super low calorie she could eat lettuce spinach and boiled chicken. She lost weight but like any fad diet or super restrictive diet it only lasts for a little while. She gained all her weight back super fast after without being gross and eating very bad or anything.. The hormones are not safe though the only time to take hormones is if your docotor prescribes them otherwise the side effects in the future could be devistating . She stopped when she noticed the people posting hormonal changes in there body after … Hair loss/growth unwanted. Skin changes she sweating etc.. But the long term is what scared her the possibility of being steril or getting cancer from this is nuts.

Your Questions About Can I Have A Few Minutes Of Your Time

George asks…

Could global warming be killing the polar bears?

Hi” Good morning

please spear a few minutes of your time reading this thanks

Rising temperatures due to global warming are threatening the entire Arctic ecosystem. Warmer temperatures means less pack ice – ice that polar bears depend on for hunting.

As their natural habitat gets warmer and decreases in size, the end result is fewer polar bears. For the polar bear, an irreplaceable symbol of the Arctic, climate change could lead to extinction. temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate as the rest of the world.
Since 1978, Arctic sea area ice has shrunk by more than 8% per decade.
Greenland’s massive ice sheet holds enough melt water to raise sea level by approximately 23 feet (7 meters).Polar bears are the world’s largest land based predators, but despite being on top of the food chain, they face threats from climate change they cannot overcome – unless we do something about it.

How can you help stop this before it’s too late? Call on the US Government to protect the polar bear’s habitat and slow the effects of global warming in america

Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world, and it is threatening to place the entire Arctic ecosystem in jeopardy. For the polar bear, an irreplaceable symbol of the Arctic, climate change could lead to their extinction.

The polar bear depends on sea ice to survive, hunting for seal until the ice disappears every summer. As climate warming reduces the extent of the pack ice, the polar bear loses precious hunting time, and the number of polar bears declines.

Polar bears are dying because sea ice is melting from global warming. Scientists think that 2/3 of all polar bears; including all in Alaska will be gone by 2050 due to losing 100% of their habitat. Global warming is causing the melting of sea ice and a decline in habitat and food, forcing the polar bears to swim farther distances than normal. The higher temperature is also causing the polar bears to overheat because of their layers of thick fur.

The US Department of Interior announced that the polar bear will be listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act on May 14, 2008, but the listing was filled with contradictions. for example, the administration signaled that it would take no steps under the Endangered Species Act to protect the polar bear from the massive oil and gas development currently planned in the very heart of its habitat. meaning thousands of polar bears will die drowning

Don’t worry about me, i already donated $100 each month to WWF to help our environment. i just hope they give my the free polar bear Adoption. that’s all. it will make me feel good, in time i am going to fight for those endangered polar bears to save lives
ok i gave everyone a thumbs up

Daniel asks…

What is one way to understand algebra if your teach’ is never on the subject on the 1st few minutes of class?

my teacher never concentrates the first few minutes of class and spends time talking about foot ball or basket ball when he does get on task he goes fast and you have no time to right notes , also if you ask a question he answers it like you are retarded and dumb how can i learn better and concentrate and get him on task he also gives us a WHOLE lesson of homework and it gets to be like question one and the A. B. C. D. which is four questions in one HELP!!
thanks . since you are the first to answer might i say my friends are not in the same class as me some are on grade and some are above two grades and they are kind of not that smart and where can i find a tutor

Hcg Diet answers:

Get a tutor or a friend that is smart in math to help you keep up. Teachers like yours are an unfortunate situation that students have to deal with.

One of your friends ahead of you might help. Especially one who has a high aptitude for math. Some schools have students who are tutors. You might ask your teacher or your counselor if there is someone who can help you.

Good luck, don’t give up.

Maria asks…

May I borrow a few minutes of your time please?

Why do people blame God for everything? Just now some dude made God responsible for the starving children in Africa. Then they say how could God allow earthquakes and other catastrophes that kill people. I find it funny how the ones that blame this on God don’t even believe in him. If they don’t believe in God why do they blame everything on God? Why not buddha or allah or zeus? No it has to be God. God loves us yes and he caring yes, but he’s not going to do what we want him to do and he’s not going to do our job. Maybe God hasn’t helped the kids in Africa because he knows that we can and he’s waiting for us to do it. I mean why should he do what we refuse? Why should we expect him to do what we refuse. If you ask me the people that blame God for not helping starving kids in Africa are hypocrites. I highly doubt that they’re going over there trying to make a difference. Some people just ask that question as a scape goat just to try to prove that God doesn’t exist knowing good well that they don’t even care about the kids in Africa. That’s low and pathetic. The same thing goes for those that ask why did God allow victims of a catastrophe to die. People die every day. It’s a part of life and did you ever stop to think that maybe that was the devils doing?
So stop blaming God for everything. Especially if you don’t believe in him. I don’t know which one looks more crazy. Us christians believing in a “sky dad” or you non-believers blaming something that you claim doesn’t exist. That is just the ultimate foolishness. How can you blame something that you don’t even believe in?
I guess serious answers are too much to ask for.
Wesley B: Thanks for the serious answer. What you said makes sense yes God did make the good and the bad was just his creations that became abominations. God did set life up the way it is yes, but I like to believe we are part of the reason. He does what he does for a reason. Maybe to get our attention. God works in mysterious ways. Though I must disagree with on what you assume that this person was getting at. He was inclining that we should include the fact that God made bad as well as good. He was just being ignorant. How can you expect God to do what you refuse to. I have yet to help the kids in Africa, but instead of questioning God and blaming him for not helping them I pray about it. It makes no sense to just ask God why isn’t he helping them when we’re capable of helping them, but refuse to.

Wesley B: God can protect us from death. HELLO! God didn’t tell the Devil to turn evil. Answer that have at least a good argument are serious answers. What do you think that your answer wasn’t serious? I could care less if anyone agrees with me or not.
lolwut: Who is they. They don’t solve any problems and neither do you.
Look at m’beard!: Once again how can you expect him to do anything when you refuse to? Just what do you do for the world? Have you changed anything? Do you do anything to help anyone? Please get off it. What good will sitting around and blaming him do? It’s not going to make him fix a thing. It’s just going to make it worst. Lolwut talked about christians sitting on their *** and praying, but at least we’re trying to help out. All y’all do is blame God. Oh yeah that’ll fix everything. With great power comes great responsibility? Tell that to the world. Their are plenty people out there with the power to help starving kids, but are they making it their responsibility? Nope. I just don’t get why people make God out to be a super hero. I personaly never said he was one, so I don’t know where this is coming from.
animefreakkatie: Why do we allow it? I have yet to see some one answer this. Don’t say that allot of us can‘t do anything about it. To be honest to many of us can do something about it, but we just don’t.
Red: I agree
Good job you guys are convincing and have made some great points! (-.-) All jokes aside what was proved here? Exactly what I was saying. All we do is blame God and what has this done? Nothing. My point was stop blaming God and effing do something about it. Next time instead of asking why did God let this happen? Ask was there something I could do about it and if so why didn’t I?
Nous: Another who blames God. Maybe WE can do something about cancer, heart disease and strokes. Do we not have the technology? We can help the one that are starving,but do we? We should be able to do something about these diseases. God puts humanity through tests to see who’s with him and who’s not. So far we are failing! All these things that he puts us through we can do something about it, but we’re to lazy. All we ever do is blame God. How about we blame ourselves for once.
Look at m’beard: Sowy that I hurt ya feewings. Don’t be angwy. Also I don’t smoke. “I work two voluntary jobs and my profession is all about helping people”. Wohow! You’re making a huge difference (two thumbs up) (-.-). There is no evidence that God doesn’t exit. I wonder why that is.
“My point was that anything and everything I could do even with the entire support of the human race would be nothing compared to what a god could do on a WHIM.” My point was why don’t we stop expecting God to do everything on a whim and do it ourselves. Can we not feed starving kids? Can we not find cures for diseases? Can we not help people out during natural disasters? We expect God to do everything. Even though all you’re trying to do is give reasons why God doesn’t exist, but all I see is excuses.
Wesley B: “Actually, a lot of those people DO make it their responsibility. And none of those people could solve the problem with a snap of their fingers like a god could.” Yes a lot of people do try to make a difference but too many don’t. I‘m just saying this probably wouldn’t be a huge issue if the majority of us would take on this responsibility. “The issue is that IF there is a god, then the god COULD help…but doesn’t. Actively chooses not to. And that is cruel.” Tell me how exactly do you know for fact that God isn’t doing any thing to help out? You don’t. Just saying that he doesn’t exist and throwing blame his way doesn’t prove anything. How do you know that he’s not helping a starving kid right now? How do you know that he hasn’t helped countless numbers of starving people already? “I was taught that if you prayed hard enough, god could cure just about any hidden disease (like cancer or arthritis) but for some reason no matter how hard you prayed he’d never heal you if you h

heal you if you had something obvious wrong, say Parkinson’s or a lost limb because those he gave you “for a reason.” I know one man that got cured of cancer without taking any kind of treatment. I know one man that got cured of AIDS. My pastor had seven strokes at once and didn’t even notice it and is still walking, talking and preaching like nothing happened. Doctors swore up and down that my cousin wouldn’t make it pass the age of 10, but my church prayed constantly for her and what do you know she’s a grown women now. This man died and was dead for three days. His wife told brought his body to a church and asked the deacons to pray for him. They prayed and gave thanks to God. The next thing you know that dead body woke up. That man came back to life and is now a pastor. This doctor who didn’t believe in God what so ever was operating on a patient, but they lost him. The guy’s heart failed him. After saying the time of death the doctor was leaving the room and all of a sudden he he
The guy’s heart failed him. After saying the time of death the doctor was leaving the room and all of a sudden he heard a whisper in his ear. The voice said to go back and pray. The doctor did. Few minutes later he heard a noise. He looked at the heart monitor and saw that the guy’s heart was beating again. Prayer does work. I‘m sorry that yours wasn’t answered, but it’s not about how hard you pray. It’s all about your faith and obedience to God. Praying hard won’t cut it. The guy that was cured of cancer prayed the same day he was diagnosed. Clearly he had strong faith and new that God would in deed cure him if he asked. The guy that was cured of AIDS asked God because he new that God was his only hope. He was cured because of his faith. My pastor walked away from seven strokes because she had a lot of people with good faith praying for her. My cousin is living right now because that church that prayed for her was full of faith. The man that died for three days came back to life becau
The man that died for three days came back to life because his wife had so much faith that God could do anything. The man who’s heart failed him is still alive because that Doctor turned from his stubborn ways and obeyed God. Prayer is answered by faith and through obedience. You can call prayer a waste of time all you want. The point is it gets the job done

Hcg Diet answers:

I don’t blame God for anything and those you mentioned are all God/s to some religion or another. “God” is also another name for deity or higher power people believe in whatever power that is. Some of this sounds a bit puritanical, (after the Puritans who believed the devil walks among us) there is definitely evil in the world though I have no doubt about that. As for the devil or God causing all the problems of man? I think man causes it’s own problems.
