Severity score: The amount of bleeding & location help classify groups of patients when discussions about eventual outcome are predicted. G1 is a bleed limited to the germinal matrix & extending to no more than 10% of the ventricle, g2=extends 10-40%, g3=extends >50%. Some add g4 which includes more brain hemorrhage.The lower the grade the more likely a good outcome with less frequent complications.

IVH/PVH: Intraventricular/periventricular hemorrhage (ivh/pvh) is graded from grade i to iv. Grade i, is where is a tiny hemorrhage underneath the lining of the cavity in the brain called lateral ventricle. Most studies have shown that (provided there are no other insults to the brain) and not associated with significant neurological dificits.

Did my baby get sick from breastfeeding?

Dr. Thad Woodard
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: Infections acquired from breast feeding are uncommon but not impossible. More likely, especially if by illness you mean a "cold" or vomiting or diarrhea illness, the illness was spread to the infant by hands or respiratory secretions during a cough or sneeze.

Did stress cause me to lose my last pregnancy midterm?

Dr. Aileen Caceres
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: The most common cause of pregnancy loss in the second trimester is a problem with the structure of the uterus. If you have a septum or congenital anomaly of the uterus (uterus divided into two horns), these structural problems can put at risk of prematurely losing a pregnancy. Any prior surgery of instrumentation on your cervix or placental problems can also increase your risk of miscarriage.

Probably yes: You should have had blood work to see if there is a fixable hormonal reason why you are skipping your periods. In general the pill is an excellent and safe way to regulate your periods. I recommend either asking more questions (maybe going with a list or a friend) so you understand your treatment better. It is unusual to do a D&C for a "stuck" period. Usually that can be treated with medicine.
