In Vitro Fertilisation

In Vitro Fertilisation I am 38 and would love to have a baby, but, although all the tests have proved ok for both myself and my husband, we're not having any luck. I started IVF this year and found the side effects of the drugs terrible. I have had two sessions of embryo transfer without success. Can you recommend anything?

In-Flight Infections

In-Flight Infections With summer holidays coming up, I'm very concerned about picking up infections on long- or short-haul flights. Since smoking was banned on flights, airlines have saved money by changing their cabin air less frequently, and many passengers, like myself, catch colds, respiratory infections and viruses. Could you recommend any antibacterial sprays or throat lozenges that might reduce the likelihood of infection? Also, when travelling, should you drink water only from sealed bottles to avoid infection?

Insomnia

Insomnia I have had difficulty in sleeping for many years. My doctor has diagnosed insomnia and given me sleeping pills but the effect invariably wears off and then I have to change pills. Also I never wake up feeling well. What can you suggest?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome I am 22 and have suffered from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) for eight months. I have tried Western treatments, acupuncture, and cut out dairy and wheat from my diet, but nothing helps the severe bloating. What can you suggest?

Impetigo

Impetigo My 19-year-old daughter, who's at university' suffers from impetigo on her face, which she finds distressing. She has been prescribed antibiotic ointment, but this only clears the spots for a while. They tend to appear at certain times of the month. Is there an alternative treatment?

Insect Bite Reaction

Insect Bite Reaction My family has always suffered from insect bite infections but these past few years my son, who is 38, has suffered worse reactions than previously: he has to take antibiotics and has been hospitalised for blood poisoning in his leg. He uses insect repellent all summer but is due to go to the Middle East. Do you have any advice?
