Birth defects: Your own OB gyn should help you find a doctor if you would like a termination for an anomalous fetus..
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
However your OB may have strong religious convictions & refuse to do so. You would then have to make enquiries in and out of State to find a rational consultant. However, many fetal anomalies are compatible with a perfectly normal life & life expectancy. For instance a fetus with a single but normal kidney, with a single multicystic or hydronephrotic kidney can look forward to a normal life.

Birth Control (?): If you got an iud on 3/23...That's birth control, you're not likely to get pregnant. If you took ocps for a week and can't get pregnant, good!....They're not made for fertility..... So, if you want birth control, you don't need pills, your iud should suffice. If you want to get pregnant, schedule an appt with your doc & get some seriously well-needed information. Take care of yourself.
