Depends- what did : your doctor say? In some cases, 'going on all fours' meaning a position that looks similar to doing the cat/or dog yoga position (without arching your back) on hands and knees will belly hanging down, can allow the fetus to have enough potential space to rearrange itself, its own positioning in the womb to not be breech, not necessarily an old wive's tale. Other times, u need the doctor to assist.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Is my baby only exposed to the herpes virus by passing through the birth canal, not while it is in the womb?

Dr. Richard Godt
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: Generally speaking, the baby will pick up the herpes virus on the way out of the birth canal and thus delivery should be by cesarean section if there are herpetic lesions present on the vulva at the time of labor.

A 21-year-old member asked:

I've had uterine cancer when I was younger, am I more likely to get colon polyps?

Dr. Richard Orr

Maybe: A recent study showed that only 4% of women with uterine ca had a colon polyp at the time of their hysterectomy. Colon ca is even less related to cevical cancer. But several families (lynch syndrome) have hereditary colon polyps, uterine cancer, and breast cancer. See a doc if you have this type of family history. And you still need a colonoscopy at age 50, as we are all at risk as we get older.

What is the relationship between uterine fibroid tumors and anemia in women?

3 doctor answers16 doctors weighed in
Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Heavy menses: Fibroids typically cause anemia by causing heavy menstrual cycles, with or without cramping. Not all fibroids cause this. Depending on the size and number of the fibroids and your future fertility plans, your doctor can help you plan what therapies are best for you.

Fibroids that are along the lining (submucosal) are those that cause heavy bleeding. Bleeding from these tumors can be very heavy causing women to change pads <3 hours or more than 8 pads/day. Some women that bleed this heavy do not realize that this is abnormal as they have bled like this for a long time. The resulting anemia needs to be corrected and the culprit (fibroids) need to be treated.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Does tamoxifen for breast cancer put me at risk for uterine cancer?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Barry Rosen
General Surgery 34 years experience
Yes: Studies have shown that women taking tamoxifen have twice the risk of developing uterine cancer as compared to the general population. However, the benefits of tamoxifen far outweigh this risk when treating many breast cancers. When taking tamoxifen, it is critical to see your gynecologist yearly and be mindful of any pelvic pain or irregular menstrual bleeding.
