Trisomy 21: This is a common occurrence in obstetrics. Getting the screening tests and how to interpret them can be scary. Having a 1 in 78 chance of downs syndrome does not mean you have a Down syndrome baby. It means you have a greater chance than by your age alone. It also means you have a 77 in 78 chance of not having this condition. Get a Fetal DNA test to help clarify this.

A 30-year-old member asked:

Are the hCG drops safe to loose weight?Does it really work?

Diet sounds unsafe: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Why does everyone opposing hCG drops fail to mention a single harmful physiological effect of the substance in men? Can anyone identify one?

No good studies yet?: Information on harmful effects of hcg, of a particular brand, quality, or amount; on men of a particular age, race, bmi, lifestyle, etc.., may not be available (if such research has not been done). In modern medicine, research starts when scientists have a strong belief that a chemical is beneficial. Then they must get funding to set up randomized blinded controlled studies to test the hypothesis.

Irregular bleeding: A pregnancy test will detect even very small amounts of pregnancy hormone, so if it is negative--highly unlikely you're pregnant. It is common to have some irregular bleeding from time to time, but an evaluation by your gyn may be in order if you are concerned or if this is common for you.

??Pregnancy possible: Your period being late by 5 days could be a sign of pregnancy if your periods had been regular in the past. Usually urine and serum pregnancy tests are positive in 5 days.
