What Is The Latest I Can Have My Baby It Is Overdue And I Want Natural Birth
Be aware: The chance of stillbirth of an otherwise normal baby increases in post mature babies. The placenta is a time limited organ where blood vessels begin to self destruct as time goes past term.It can function well when there is no pressure of the womb muscle, but fail to adequately nourish baby in labor.The longer you go, the less likely a normal labor. Pay attention to your OB's advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
As a male, how can I get rid of all the pressure that is on me since my wife is on Clomid (clomiphene) and I need to deliver or no baby?
Relax: Clomid (clomiphene) is no guarantee that she will produce healthy eggs or that you would be the only weak point if things don't go well. If you had your counts done & have a reasonable supply of swimmers, you both have better chances of success but many couples do everything right & it takes years and or other assisted technology to get the job done.As many of 1/3 conceptions do not attach before they shed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband and i are trying to have a baby one last time. I am 41 years old. Is it anything I should be doing to prepare? Is there any medication i can take from the doctor that will increase fertility?
The : The best answer is to see a reproductive endocrinologist (fertility specialist) to determine what your potential for getting pregnant is, or you may lose valuable time. Most women will be unable to get pregnant by the age of 45, but may start experiencing a lot of difficulty, even using fertility treatments, as early as age 42. Additionally, miscarriage rates rise for the same reason the risk of down's syndrome rises after 35...The eggs that are released (ovulated) are more prone to have chromosomal errors. As previously mentioned your reproductive potential can be assessed by performing 3 tests: day 3 fsh, amh & an antral follicle count on ultrasound. The important thing to mention is that while there may be age available statistics, those are just averages for your age group. Your chances may be better or worse based on these values and your history. Typically a normal value for fsh is 4-8. A value between 8-15 may indicated decreased ovarian function, and above 15 may predict significant problems getting pregnant. One test that is newer and shows a lot of promise is the amh value. A value less than 1.0 suggests compromised ovarian function and may suggest decreased responsiveness to medication. Often an amh value may pick up subtle ovarian dysfunction before the more traditional test, fsh. The information derived from the amh test can be used to influence what treatment is chosen for your particular circumstance. In a study we published at brown university, amh values less than 1.0 corresponded with less eggs retrieved during ivf (6 or less eggs). Finally, the antral follicle count involves counting the number of "developing eggs" (follicles) and can be used to estimate your ovarian function as well. A fertility specialist will also be able to evaluate and treat other factors that may decrease your chances of getting pregnant. In the interim it is always best to continue taking prenatal vitamins, limit caffeine intake to once daily, avoid cigarette smoke and eat healthy.

I am afraid of the shots that I have to give my months old baby! what is the problem in order to do them later when it is a bit older?I
Exposure: Waiting simply allows them further exposure to the diseases. And having a current epidemic of whooping cough(pertussis) where i practice, your child has an increased risk of serious disease and even death by waiting.And the shots are a much safer risk than taking a chance on getting the disease! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
My mom says that I still can be pregnant even though I got my period, so just in case is there any natural way for me to kill the fetus?
Hey me and my gilfriend are both planning on having sex for the first time but i heard it can hurt the girl the first time which i really wouldnt want for her. is there any way to get around this ?
Hmmm....: The pain with first sex idea is overdone. If a woman has a healthy vulva and vagina; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves with small motions until she is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may be little or no hymen tearing nor bleeding. Also, pain is as much mental as physical. ...Read more
How safe is it to have a baby if I have myasthenia gravis? I know people do it, but what are the risks? Both to me and the baby? Will I have to go off my meds? Will i pass the disease on to my baby? I’d really like to have a baby, but i’m worried. My doc
The : The more common kind of myasthenia gravis is an acquired condition: your body is tricked into making antibodies that attack its own acetylcholine receptors on the surface of your muscles, reducing the ability of your nerves to activate them, and leading to weakness. There is another, much rarer type of myasthenia gravis that is not acquired, but genetic. Women with acquired myasthenia gravis won't pass the disease itself on to their children, but since the myasthnia antibodies made by mom can cross the placenta into the circulation of the fetus, the fetus can be affected temporarily (mom's antibodies can stay in the baby up to several weeks after birth). This condition is called neonatal myasthenia gravis. Newborns with neonatal myasthenia can have temporary weakness of limb muscles, breathing muscles, and feeding muscles. They can also have a condition called arthrogryposis, stiff joints with limited range of flexibility because they didn't move as much in the womb as they might have otherwise. This is why it is important to have acquired myasthenia gravis well-controlled throughout pregnancy. There are many different kinds of medications used to control myasthenia. Some of them, particularly the immunosuppressants (like methotrexate, azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetic) are known to cause harm to the baby if taken during pregancy, while breastfeeding, or even prior to conception. Other treatments such as steroids and ivig are less risky (but not zero risk). Women with myasthenia who are considering pregnancy should work very closely with a team including a neurologist experienced in the treatment of myasthenia gravis, an obstetrician and a neonatologist. This is the best way to reduce worry, and risk, as much as possible. For general information about myasthenia gravis, visit the myasthenia gravis foundation of america website at www.Myasthenia.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

30 wks pregnat. My iron is really low , can this any way effect me or my baby in birth and if theres anything I can do to rise my levels, what is it ?
Take iron supplement: Please talk to your doctor, but you still have a couple of months to increase your iron before delivery. Eat iron containing foods, take a supplement daily, and stay well hydrated. Your low iron could be tough on you after delivery because during childbirth everyone loses blood and the lower the level you start with, the tougher it is to feel energetic after the baby gets here. ...Read more
I want to know if it is safe to have my child if i had an abortion one month ago and now I am pregnant.. Is it safe for me and the baby?
Yes and Maybe: It is generally recommended that you not conceive for 3 months after an abortion or miscarriage. That said, now that you are pregnant, be seen regularly and take your vitamins. It is possible that you will miscarry, but i would not recommend anything unless that happens. The bigger question is why you had the abortion and then became pregnant. ...Read more
