Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Would a D&C be performed if a mother is miscarrying at 37/38 weeks pregnancy? And if so, how soon before the patient is discharged?

Would a D&C be performed if a mother is miscarrying at 37/38 weeks pregnancy? And if so, how soon before the patient is discharged?

Term pregnancy: At that point, the pregnancy is full term and will be "stillborn." A sad situation and I feel for her.
She will likely have her labor induced and deliver vaginally if possible. The length of stay in the hospital will be similar to one for a regular birth. This assumes the mother doesn't have a complication such as an infection. ...Read more

On the pill but having spotting and pink discharge. Could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: Spotting and discharge would not be normal signs of pregnancy. They are, however, very normal when starting a new birth control pill and can occur sporadically even when stable on a pill. Pregnancy is not impossible on birth control, and home pregnancy tests remain accurate on the pill so may ease your concern. Persistent discharge with pain, discomfort, a foul odor, fever may suggest infection ...Read more

I am two days late for my period I've had some light pink discharge but nothing else. Could I be pregnant?

Pregnancy: If you have regular menstrual cycles and are spotting now, you could be pregnant. A pregnancy test will be positive soon after your missed period (1-3 days) and sometimes earlier before you miss your period with the more sensitive urine tests. I would check a pregnancy test or your doctor can order a blood pregnancy test to be more certain. ...Read more

The day of my period I only had pink discharge all day. Then a 3 day period after that can I be pregnant.?

Unlikely: If you did not have sex since your last period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. If you did, having a period, even a light one argues against pregnancy. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I'm not pregnant, but for the past week or so when I have a BM when I wipe I pink discharge coming from my vigina, I'm worried HELP??

Not serious: Often the pressure of a BM on the vagina will squeeze out anything left from the last period. If there is an odor or any pain, you should be seen. Otherwise, just possibly take a stool softener so there is less pressure and be sure always to wipe from front to back. ...Read more

15 days late and I have some pink discharge like light spotting. Also take regular steroid injections for my back. Could I be pregnant?

15 days late and I have some pink discharge like light spotting. Also take regular steroid injections for my back. Could I be pregnant?

Absolutely!: Unless you've had a hysterectomy, then its always possible! If you are 15 days late and you have regular cycles then take a pregnancy test. If you are wondering if the steroids cause you to be late, the answer is likely not, if your periods are always regular. If you are indeed pregnant the steroid injections are likely not harmful. If you would like to avoid pregnancy, see your gyno for options. ...Read more

Could I be pregnant. If my period was light and lasted 2 days then stop for a day. After that I had light pink discharge now it's brown?

My period is EXTREMELY normal starts every 5th of the month. My period is 6 days late and I have VERY light pink discharge. Could I be pregnant?

Take a test: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections, hormonal changes, polyps and fibroids can cause spotting. If concerned for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.
