Sometimes medications are used to calm the uterus. ...Read more

I've large fibroids -22 weeks pregnant look like for 1 yr now, what's happening to my body? Can it cause damage to my uterus , kidneys /organs ?Gyn's

Kidneys: Large fibroids are usually just uncomfortable because the uterus presses on the bowels & bladder. This won't usually cause any damage but can contribute to constipation & frequent urination. Very large fibroids can cause kidney damage by blocking the flow of urine in the ureters. The ureters carry the urine from the kidneys to the bladder. If the urine backs up into the kidney it can cause damage. ...Read more

Is 1.5cm dilation at 22 weeks pregnancy is Cervical incompetency? usually heard that cervical dilation at 20-50mm is incompetent. what is true?

Controversial topic: Premature cervical changes(dilatation,shortening, funneling,softening...) are difficult to measure and to interpret.Sonographic or clinical exams of your cervix are very variable, very subjective, not accurate nor reliable predictors of premature labor or preterm delivery. Consult a knowledgeable MFM doctor regarding accepted criteria for "cervical insufficiency". Your risks at 22wks.seem small. ...Read more

I am between 5- 6 weeks pregnant. Had u/s no baby. Hgc 2400. Said my uterus is not thick. Is this normal?

Not normal : If the HCG is 2400 and they dont see anything in your uterus you need to see your doctor. It's possible you are having a miscarriage. It's also possible you have an ectopic pregnancy. That's when the pregnancy is not in the uterus where it is supposed to be. Your doc will do blood tests and help figure out what is going on. If you have bad pain or cramping go to the hospital. ...Read more

See specialist: Consider seeing an MFM (maternal fetal medicine) specialist. They can take more detailed look via ultrasound and make recommendations if they think you are at risk for preterm labor. After delivery and postpartum period, consider a hysterosalpingogram (x-ray study of uterus and tubes) or MRI. Your reproductive specialist can schedule these. Ask your OB to get records from your infertility dr. ...Read more

How does your uterus shift when you are pregnant?

How does your uterus shift when you are pregnant?

Up, Out and Right!: In general, the uterus "grows" out of the pelvis by the start of the second trimester (14 weeks). Additionally, with ascent from the pelvis, the uterus usually undergoes rotation with tilting to the right (dextro-rotation), probably due to presence of the rectosigmoid colon on the left side. This adds to the symptoms of "soreness" at each side of the uterus called "round ligament" pain. This is qu. ...Read more
