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

Do obgyns routinely test for herpes during pregnancy? I have a patch of little bumps by my vagina. They've been there for weeks. They don't hurt thoug

Not herpes: These bumps are not herpes. Lesions of genital herpes go from red bump to blister to sore (with scab if on a dry surface) and then heal over 1-3 weeks. Genital warts are a possibility, but maybe nothing abnormal. Show your obstetrician. Some Ob's test routinely for HSV infection, but most probably do not -- but if you remain concerned about herpes, probably she will test you. Good luck! ...Read more

Can pregnancy cause a woman to have bumps on her vagina?

Can pregnancy cause a woman to have bumps on her vagina?

Maybe: You might have more acne like hair bumps while you're pregnant. However, without seeing the bumps its hard to know if that's what it is. Assuming you're getting prenatal care, I would have your OB provider look at the bumps to confirm what they are. ...Read more

Vaginal supos. Progesterone od? 2000 mg per day for 2 days, before only 1100 mg over the 7 weeks of pregnancy, is new bump in vagina, edema? Serious?

Vaginal supos. Progesterone od? 2000 mg per day for 2 days, before only 1100 mg over the 7 weeks of pregnancy, is new bump in vagina, edema? Serious?

Doubt it: If there is a new bump/mass you should have your doctor examine it, but highly unlikely a discrete mass is caused by Progesterone suppositories. Edema is diffuse and would not mostly be felt as a mass. In 20 years I've not seen this from Progesterone suppositories, but alternatives include intravaginal Crinone (progesterone gel) gel and intramuscular shots of Progesterone in oil. ...Read more

Is it compulsory for every woman that her vagina should bleed during her first sex? Or else there will a problem in her pregnancy?

Is it compulsory for every woman that her vagina should bleed during her first sex? Or else there will a problem in her pregnancy?

No, of course not...: The bleeding with first sex idea is overdone. It doesn't always happen. Bleeding means there were little tears. If a woman has a healthy vulva, vagina, and hymen; 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 gentler motions until she is well-lubricated; there may not be any bleeding. ...Read more

However general pelvic vascular congestion occurs during pregnancy and can result in enlargement of vuvlvar structures, varicosities, and increased moisture. ...Read more
