I recently had a miscarriage and only waited a week to have sex now I have nausea vomiting and also smells are making me sick what's wrong with me?

Hormones dropping: It takes some time after a miscarriage for the HCG levels to drop, so you may still experience some pregnancy symptoms. You need to give your body time to heal, though. I usually recommended avoiding pregnancy until you have 2 normal periods. Use condoms and spermicide or abstinence until then. ...Read more

Taking oral progesterone due to 2 miscarriages. Last period on 7/6. Ovulated & started progesterone 7/24. Sense of smell very strong and sore breasts?

Taking oral progesterone due to 2 miscarriages. Last period on 7/6. Ovulated & started progesterone 7/24. Sense of smell very strong and sore breasts?

Ouch!: The symptoms you are experiencing are likely d/t the Progesterone- remember the breast swelling just before your period? Prog levels are the highest then; and that is part of its function, to also enrich the uterus to sustain pregnancy. First, let me empathize, my wife took Prog to maintain her pregnancy (our only one!) Also, you may get pregnant underneath this, so much the better! Good Luck! ...Read more

Miscarried in march, anxiety and easy tensed. Had accupuncture but still in bad condition. When is the best time to get pregnant again?

Take time to recover: A miscarriage can be very stressful, but so is getting pregnant. I advise waiting until you're less anxious before getting pregnant. While it was reasonable to try acupuncture, consider other approaches. Make sure your thyroid & adrenals are working well- low function could have caused a miscarriage. Consider counseling, magnesium & homeopathy, seeing holistic doc: http://www.Abihm. Org/search-doctors. ...Read more

3 miscarriages this year for surrogacy. History of bad periods. I'm 36 and done having kids. I really want a hysterectomy this time.?

3 miscarriages this year for surrogacy. History of bad periods. I'm 36 and done having kids. I really want a hysterectomy this time.?

OK: That seems like a reasonable plan. However, you should consider options. For instance if you are going to find a surrogate you might want to have a good supply of embryos before that or make sure the surrogate delivers before you have a hysterectomy. You will likely want to keep your ovaries. But ivf after removal of the uterus can be more difficult so consider all options and the timing! ...Read more
