A 31-year-old member asked:
If I took indoethacin in my last weeks of pregnancy, should the fetal heart rate be monitored on a daily basis?
2 doctor answers • 4 doctors weighed in
Specializes in Gynecology
Depends: Indomethacin taken frequently over a long period of time can cause a transient change in the fetal heart circulation (in doctor speak it closes the ductus arteriosus). Small doses for only a few days, which is usually the only thing we would do, is not particularly dangerous. Check with your doctor on why you are taking it and whether monitoring is needed.

A 41-year-old member asked:
Can a gonorrhea infection during pregnancy harm the unborn child?

Depends: Recognition & treatment of gonorrhea during pregnancy does not necessarily harm the fetus. The infection can remain localized to external glandular structures and the exterior cervix without invading the fetus. Other std's like syphillis have a variable effect. If untreated, the baby may acquire gc and lose vision from a tremendous eye infection. If concerned get tested & treated.

A 38-year-old member asked:
If I have too much estrogen, or not enough progesterone, does that make me more susceptible to breast cancer?

Breast cancer risk: Maybe: some breast cancers take up estrogen as a sort of growth hormone to encourage growth, so too much estrogen can speed growth of these cancers. There is a very small increase in breast cancer risk with estrogen only given postmenopausally for the symptoms. Relative increase in Progesterone only is associated with some breast disorders also but cancer risk is unclear.
