Can A Woman Who Is Very Hairy Have Problems Giving Birth
No problem: It depends on the cause of the hair growth but if it's genetic (you're always hairier than others) and not due to a hormone producing tumor, then no problem.

Probably not: First, if you have constipation you can use immodium safely to prevent/treat the diarrhea. The main risk other than dehydration is contractions. Calcification means early aging of the placenta. Very common in smokers, high blood pressure and advanced maternal age.

Is a woman more likely to have a child born with birth defects if she's had multiple miscarriages, as opposed to a same aged woman that's had none?
Depends: We studied a woman that had 17 miscarriages by the time she was referred to the genetic service. A chromosome study revealed an extremely rare balanced defect that would lead to more in the future. However this is the rare exception, you will only gain a good picture of your personal risk if you meet with a medical geneticist and s/he explores both sides of the family. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are birth defects possible in women who have become pregnant by a man who has used soriatane (acitretin)?
Not likely: Studies show that there are extremely low levels of the drug in the seminal fluid. The study showed that if the man had a 10ml ejaculate (not likely: most men ejaculate 1 to 5 ml) the amount of drug in the seminal fluid would be 1/200, 000 the level of a single dose (25mg) this study is at least 10 years old. So not likely. See your ob/gyn if you are pregnant. Have an anomaly scan done early. ...Read more

Would marrying a female cousin from my mothers side cause any complications for pregnancy? For some people this is normal tradition.
Genetic Disorders...: There are two copies of every gene. In some genetic disorders, if one gene is abnormal but the other is normal, the affected person will be normal. If both genes are abnormal, the disorder will manifest. Marrying a cousin carries an increased risk of these genetic disorders because the chance that both you and your cousin both carry the abnormal gene is higher so your children may be affected. ...Read more

If 2 ppl, woman(156cm) and man163cm)marry, does this yield a possibility of dwarfism for their children or may result in children being shorter thn thm?
Not really dwarfism: That's a 5'1" woman and 5'4" man... Both shorter than average but in the normal range for people. "shorter than average" is not related to dwarfism, because dwarfism is usually due to a genetic problem. Without some type of defect, such normal heights should not be a factor in deciding to marry and have children, unless a parent would have some sort of psychological problem from having short kids. ...Read more
