Congenital problem: If the developing baby is exposed to excess alcohol then it can develop abnormalities in brain function as well as facial development. People with fetal alcohol syndrome can also have emotional difficulties. No one really knows how much alcohol is too much for the baby so we generally advise pregnant women to avoid alcohol.

Should I be concerned if I consumed alcohol before I knew I was pregnant?

Probably not: Habitual, or alcoholic, drinking during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome which causes major problems for the newborn. Just one or two drinks will not cause this, but you should not drink alcohol if you are pregnant, just to be safe.

What are the effects on drinking alcohol on anti-depressants?

Runs against them: Using both alcohol and antidepressants together runs the risk of intoxication and sedation -- more than expected with either alone. Also in the long run, alcohol is a depressant, and disrupts sleep cycle. Your antidepressant will be fighting this, in a sense. Alcohol may give the temporary illusion of improved mood, but repeated binges can also dysregulate -- rather than even out -- your mood.

How safe is the polyvinyl alcohol used for uterine aterial embolization?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Shawn Sarin
Vascular Surgery 23 years experience
Safe: Pva is a safe particle that is used for uterine artery embolization. However, it's particles are irregular in shape and not a consistent size. Therefore the use of this has largely been abandoned outside of a few select centers. There are many other embolic agents that are used, thought to have have more uniform size.
