If a mother and father both have genital herpes, what are the chances of their new baby having it?

If a mother and father both have genital herpes, what are the chances of their new baby having it?

Manageable risks: If a mother delivers vaginally with her first genital outbreak, there is ~30% risk the baby could get it and have a terrible illness. If a recurrent outbreak, this drops to ~4% but suppression of outbreaks or c-section delivery before the membranes are open 4 hours can cancel the risk.

If a mother has a history of genital herpes, what are the odds of a baby having birth defects both for c-section and vaginal birth?

Varies: Birth defects are not an issue with maternal herpes. The baby is at risk of a severe infection from the germ. The risk period begins with the opening of the bag of waters if mom is actively shedding the virus during a recognized or silent outbreak. The germ can travel into babies system & lay dormant for a while or immediately cause infection. A c-section before labor starts can avoid the risk. ...Read more

My 89 year old mother fell and they are saying she has a slight dislocation of pelvis, is this possible or am I hearing the doctor wrong?

Likely stable: Elderly individuals that sustain low-energy falls can have pelvic ring injuries with pubic rami fractures and impaction fractures of the sacrum. I doubt she has a dislocation, those typically are associated with higher energy injuries. The rami fractures are stable and she can walk on it safely without displacing if there is not a complete sacral fracture. ...Read more

I need a new hip, what is the best procedure? I'm 58, having chronic pain.  Hip locks, can't bend.  Mother had both done in her 50s.  In good health, very active.

The : The main types are:
1. Hemiarthroplasty, which is a surgical procedure which replaces one half of the joint with an artificial surface and leaves the other part in its natural state. This class of procedure is most commonly performed on the hip after a fracture. The procedure is performed by removing the head of the femur and replacing it with a metal or composite prosthesis.
2. Hip resurfacing is an alternative to hip replacement surgery. It is a bone conserving procedure that places a metal cap on the femoral head. It is more like a natural hip and may allow patients a return to many activities, including marathons and triathlons.
3. There is also conservative treatment, such as injections, to try to avoid a hip procedure. ...Read more
