I just found out I'm pregnant. 4weeks along and I'm addicted to laxatives I take 25mg of bisacodyl a day for 6 years. Will this hurt the fetus?

Shouldn't be problem: With the pregnancy per se, but laxative abuse can be part of a larger problem, including eating disorders like anorexia nervosa and bulimia, both of which can cause problems in pregnancy. You need to talk to your PCP and/or OB provider about your laxative use and get help. It can be treated, it isn't rare, and it doesn't make you a bad person. Especially now, when you are expecting, get help!!

I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?

I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?

No: If you had surgical (d;c) abortion the pregnancy was missed. If you used Cytotec (misoprostol) to induce termination it was unsuccessful. If there is a heart beat at 7 weeks and 4 days either the first heartbeat was missed or a new pregnancy was conceived. The abortion unfortunately was unsuccessful. Contact your doctor.

How can I get rid of a fetus without an abortion?

How can I get rid of a fetus without an abortion?

Home remedies for: Abortion are far too dangerous to recommend. They work by the principal of toxicity. The toxins affect the mother ; fetus. The idea is that the mother will survive the poisons but the fetus won't.

Abortion: An abortion, whether spontaneous or induced, is fetal death. The fetus was either too young to survive outside the uterus or was abnormal and died.

Abortion is illegal in most countries but I'd like to know if there is a pill that can be taken to exspell the fetus in its early stage?

Abortion: Some abortions are done surgically and others are done using medications. Medical abortion is what you are referring to. RU 486 is the name of the medication.

Isn't it true that when women have an abortion in the first trimester the fetus isn't really developed. Yet?

Isn't it true that when women have an abortion in the first trimester the fetus isn't really developed. Yet?

Depends: This depends on when you believe life starts. Some say it is at conception when the egg and sperm join. Some say it is at about 24 weeks pregnant when the baby has a chance at surviving if it were born. Others say it is not until birth. This is a true ethical debate.

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Certainly: A fetus can have normal karyotype and still have any one of a large variety of really bad congenital defects. That means many bad birth defects happen in babies who have normal karyotypes. As we each walk our journeys in life, we must make the best decisions we can, with the information we have at hand... people make the best call they can, and then move on, to the promises that the future holds.

How long after a medical abortion at 8w 5d, does it take the fetus to pass and come out?

24 to 72 hours: Once the 2nd of the two abortion pills are taken, contractions with fetal passage should begin in 24 to 72 hours. If that does not occur and the 2nd pill was not swallowed, but held between the check and gum, then you need to see your abortion MD for another ultrasound examination to determine fetal passage or not and the next treatment step as needed.

I was 12 wk preg. Fetus had cystic hygroma&above normal N.T&generalized edema, my Dr. Decided abortion, was it the right decision?

I was 12 wk preg. Fetus had cystic hygroma&above normal N.T&generalized edema, my Dr. Decided abortion, was it the right decision?

12 wks fetal hydrops: That early in pregnancy, edema is hydrops, generalized; an increased nuchal translucency will be seen, which later in pregnancy may turn into a cystic hygroma, unless septation was already present--as seen in severely affected 45X (Turner syndrome) fetuses. Many other potential causes, but prognosis of hydrops this early is dismal. An amniocentesis prior to abortion allows chromosomal analysis.

Genetic Counseling: If you have had 22q11.22 duplication testing it is likely that you have access to genetic counseling. Important to raise questions with the genetic counselor or geneticist (doctor who specializes in genetics) about percentages with Autism and other developmental delays with this particular duplication. Decisions about whether to continue the pregnancy should be made after thorough discussion.

Patience, expectancy: Your betaHCG may take several weeks to return to normal depending on the gestational age at which your pregnancy was terminated. If you have no pain, no excessive bleeding, no fever or other symptoms, there is little cause for alarm. Otherwise, be patient. If you remain concerned, you may want to repeat your HCG in another week or so.

Tubal abortion. Dead fetus 17 x 27 mm located in pouch of douglas. Bhcg = 5.7 ; LMP = 9 jan; bleeding 2 mar. Will it absorbed in the body normally?

Tubal abortion. Dead fetus 17 x 27 mm located in pouch of douglas. Bhcg = 5.7 ; LMP = 9 jan; bleeding 2 mar. Will it absorbed in the body normally?

Yes, probably: A small number of ectopic pregnancies will actually "abort" out the end of the tube and not require surgery. This should never be the assumption, and weekly followup HCG levels should be performed until cycles resume and they remain negative. Also, in a case such as this, I would probably perform some form of ultrasound in the next month - this must be coordinate with an ob/gyn!
