Can A Woman Have More Than One Stillbirth Scared To Try Again
Stillbirth: The cause of the first stillbirth would help determine your recurrence risk. In general, there is a 3 - 5% risk of recurrence. Older women however have a greater chance of stillbirth.

Would birth control give me a higher risk of getting pregnant if I try it for a week or two? Or would I have to try it for a longer period of time?
No to both questions: Some women conceive right after stopping birth control pills, stopping nuvaring, or removing an iud. These and other birth control methods reduce the chances of getting pregnant. Starting then stopping birth control won't improve your fertility or help you to conceive. See a fertility specialist (rei md) if ttc without success for 6 - 12 months: up to 1 year if you're under 35 with regular cycles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do I have to try a vaginal birth if I am expecting twins? Can i choose a c-section even if first one is head down?
Great question: Most ob's i work with consider vaginal birth for twins only with women who are delivering early and with all favorable indicators. They rather deliver them c-section than worry about the second twin hanging up in delivery. Discuss this with your OB and have a game plan ahead of time.Coming in during early labor may give you the most options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I wad wondering if after two misscarriages one at 8wks and one at 15wks would it be a good idea to take to my obgyn about maybe my cervix (ic)?
See answer : I'm sorry for your losses. ~12-15% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Most pregnancy losses in first trimester result from chromosomal (genetic) abnormalities, and are random events. The abnormality may come from the egg, the sperm, or the early embryo. This would be most likely explanation in your situation. Incompetent cervix is one of the causes of second trimester miscarriages. ...Read more

Why would menstruation happen every fortnight, rather than every month? is it more likely to be due to too much E/P, or too little? tips to fix it?
Dont hold yer breath: Anything is possible and not all 18 year olds have finished growing but most have. 5' 11" is pretty tall and in fact an optimal height. You should take a long hard look at why you are not satisfied with your height because i'm willing to bet you that many who are 6' 4" would tell you that they wished they were 5' 11" when they were 18. Extremes of height are associated with unique problems. ...Read more
If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?
Extremely: No doctor should consider this based on current guidelines. You should be evaluated for causes of a large infant. Elective delivery should not be performed prior to 39 weeks. Estimated size is not an appropriate indication for early delivery due to the inaccuracy inherent in estimating fetal weight. Size may be considered when deciding the route of delivery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
