Had 2 early miscarriages in june and august The acne on my chin/jawline has gotten really bad. Is this the result of the miscarriages being so close?

Probably not: The acne may represent excess sebaceous gland excretion that may not be related to the two recent miscarriages. If your resulting periods have been regular and normal since the miscarriages then it is definitely not related.

What could be causing me to feel like a woman hitting puberty for the first time after a miscarriage. Stopped menstrating, acne, hair loss and moody?

Need to be seen: One concern out of many that I have is of a small androgen-producing tumor somewhere. Your physician needs to consider all the possibilities before deciding that "stress" is a cause. I'm sorry for the loss of your child.

Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.

I'm 6 wks pregnant. When should I stop worrying about having a miscarriage? Also, is E cigarettes safer than regular cigarettes during pregnancy?

I'm 6 wks pregnant. When should I stop worrying about having a miscarriage? Also, is E cigarettes safer than regular cigarettes during pregnancy?

Stop smoking: Smoking raises the risk of miscarriage. Stop smoking to decrease your risk of miscarriage and many other harmful effects to you and your baby. There are no studies regarding the effects of E Cigs or Vaping in pregnancy so the best choice if to stop. E Cigs likely exposed your baby to less chemicals than cigarettes but neither are considered safe.

Just had my third miscarriage in a row and when I started bleesing went to a&e and was told my hCG level was 5 can it be a problem with the progestron?

Just had my third miscarriage in a row and when I started bleesing went to a&e and was told my hCG level was 5 can it be a problem with the progestron?

Could be cervix, etc: This could be due to an incompetent cervix and may need what is called a cerclage to correct it. There could be a Progesterone deficiency and so supplements may help. There could be other issues, like chromosomal abnormalities, preeclampsia, and hypothyroidism involved, so it would be smart to see your doctor for an exam and hormone studies to find out. Best of luck.
