Highly variable: The biggest risk in coming off a maintenance drug for opioid addiction is NOT the harm to the fetus as much as it is the harm to the mother - relapse. There are no controlled trials of this, but the relapse rate of women who come off methadone is over 90%, and the use of street drugs, the crime necessary to obtain them, the adulterants and contaminants and lifestyle issues are what is harmful. ...Read more

Lmp 5/1, positive hpt 3/2, bhcg 2063 7/2. Dating scan yesterday revealed yolk sac only, no heartbeat dated at 6 weeks only  ? Missed miscarriage?

Another BHCG: The best way to know what is going on with the pregnancy it to have another bhcg level drawn. The number should double every 48 hours. If it is staying the same or declining the pregnancy is probably not going to continue. If it is on the rise then perhaps the ultrsound was just too early to detect the gestational sac and heartbeat. ...Read more

Follow up: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you should see a doctor right away. You need to confirm that your miscarriage was completed, and not an ectopic or a continuing pregnancy. It seems unlikely that you could have a positive test from a new pregnancy so soon after miscarriage. You expect to ovulate no sooner than 2 weeks after the loss, and the test usually doesn't turn positive for 10 days. ...Read more

I used cytotec (misoprostol) to abort but didn't bleed. U/s showed 5 weeks and 6 days fetus but no heartbeat. Will 7 weeks fetus on next ultrasound have heartbeat?

I used cytotec (misoprostol) to abort but didn't bleed. U/s showed 5 weeks and 6 days fetus but no heartbeat. Will 7 weeks fetus on next ultrasound have heartbeat?

Time will tell: No way to predict. If your dates were consistent with a 5wk6d pregnancy chances are pretty good. If the fetus is alive then there should be definite fetal heart activity visible at 7 weeks especially with a vaginal scan. Hope things work out the way you want. ...Read more
