Wean off Subutex in pregnancy ok'd.WorldHealthOrg: "1st trimstr = inc rsk miscarry, 3rd = rsk preterm labor". Is 2nd tri then safest option for fetus?
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

Do hCG levels increase during a miscarriage or increase then decrease? Was told I miscarried. In 1 week level went from 412 to 3548. 2nd opinion?
See your Doc: If your HCG levels are still rising, you need to be re-evaluated by an Ob/Gyn. After a miscarriage, the levels should continue to drop to zero. Rising HCG levels after a miscarriage can indicate something serious such as Choriocarcinoma. Its also possible that the initial diagnosis of a miscarriage was incorrect. Don't wait to have it checked out. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Type 1 diabetic. Had PCOS & anemia Oct 2014. Reg period now. Felt bloated despite of exercise 2x/wk & right food. Why do I gain weight? Gas problem?
Excessive bloating (5 CM) in 5th week of pregnancy. 2 doctors said no meds allowed. I gain/lose 3 kilos during day. 1st pregnancy was the same! ?
Actually: I allow my patients to use simethicone (gas x) for bloating. If this is from constipation, you can also use metamucil, colace, dulcolax and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). If your IBD causes diarrhea you can safely use immodium (generic fine), pepto bismol, kaopectate. I usually hand a list of safe meds for common problems at the first visit. Ask your OB if he/she has one. ...Read more

Missed miscarriage at week 8, baby lost heart beat. Induced miscarriage with cytote 3 weeks ago, now hcg level 300( was 337 two days ago), need D&C?
Probably...: Cytotec (misoprostol) will usually cause you to pass the tissue left in your uterus. If it doesn't, a D&C is frequently performed. Its also a good idea to continue repeating the HCG level after the D&C until it is zero. This will ensure that there is no other problems related to the miscarriage such as gestational trophoblastic disease. Best Wishes! ...Read more
