Embryo transfer ?'s: Usually embryo transfer will be done with ovulatory mucus to accommodate the transfer more easily, but this can be done even with "cloudy" mucus. With normal preparation techniques for reception of embryo transfer, the success rate is not statistically diminished by "cloudy mucus".

A 39-year-old member asked:

If I suffer from low blood pressure, will my fetus receive enough blood flow?

Yes: Unless blood pressure is dangerously low, the baby will typically receive adequate blood flow. During pregnancy the body tends to focus blood flow to the uterus. So while the baby gets plenty of blood flow, you may feel light-headed or dizzy if your blood pressure is very low. Most pregnant women have relatively low blood pressures and feel fine.

Do cervical mucus changes signal ovulation date?

Roughly...: Around the time of ovulation, the amount of cervical mucus increases and it becomes more thin, clear, watery and elastic in response to estrogen produced in the body. After ovulation as the body shifts from estrogen to progesterone, the mucus becomes more thick, opaque and sticky. Tracking these changes can help you to know when you may ovulate, but is not a very reliable form of birth control!

Yes: The toxins from food poisoning will not traverse the placenta so the baby will not get sick directly. However, food poisoning can result in dehydration which can be problematic.

If you have genital herpes, what risks are there to your unborn baby?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Fetus can get herpes: A fetus (unborn baby) can catch herpes from the mother before labor and delivery. Such transmission of the herpes virus is uncommon but does occur sometimes. It happens more often if the mom catches herpes for the first time while she is pregnant, because she won't have pre-existing antibodies to block the virus. Most of the newborns with herpes caught it during or soon after the birth process.
