Can Ecstasy Use While Pregnant Cause My Child To Have A Pfo
All newborns have it: A patent foramen ovale (pfo) is present in all babies prior to birth and just after birth. This hole between the two upper chambers (right and left atrium) closes gradually over time, but in 1-in-7 people it never completely closes. If it is small, it is considered a normal finding. Rarely a PFO is larger than usual and needs to be closed with surgery or, more often, with a catheter procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My mom has PFO which caused a stroke while she was 8mo pregnant at the age of 38. Am i at risk if i get pregnant? Is PFO genetic?
Patent foramen ovale: There is some recent conflcting evidence on pfo and stroke especially recurrence. It can be familial. Certainly ought to let your doc know if mom had a pfo. That she had a cva when she was pregnant doesn't necessarily mean you're at high risk, remember only half your genes came from her. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My cardio said baby aspirin will be enough while pregnant; have small PFO and atrital septal aneurysm. Very scared about this, is it ok? No symptoms.
Clarify. ASD?: Are you asking if the pregnant mother has a patent foramen ovale, or an atrial septal defect? Most women with ASD in pregnancy do fine, and the management is not really different from normal pregnancy other than a possible baseline echocardiogram. Risks, especially in those over the age of 40 include arrhythmias, heart failure, thromboembolism and severe bleeding at the time of delivery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can me having a STD for a while when I was pregnant because I did not know I was affected cause my child to have mental health problems for my child?
Depends on the std: Some like chlamydia and gonorrhea would not bother the fetus during pregnancy but might at delivery if untreated. Syphilis could be a problem at either time unless recognized and treated. Others (herpes) could have variable outcome,primary infection vs recurrence. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can having chlamidyia for a while when I was pregnant cause motor development problems for my child like having mental problem? Worried didnt know
Not an issue: Baby is protected by the fetal membranes from any invasion by chlamydia that may be in other areas of your genital tract. In fact the pregnancy likely prevented the germ from getting up to your tubes, where it could do some damage to your fertility.The fetus is only at risk from the germs that can enter your blood and slip in through the placenta.Chlamydia does not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was hoping to deliver first child before age 35. Would delivering after 35 cause health issues or complications for my baby? Hoping to be pregnant soon.
Not necessarily: The health focus on deliveries over 35 is more because the risks of a chromosome defect like down syndrome increases 5x that of the 16-29 age group.All pregnancies have a basic 4% risk of unexpected outcome (premi, cleft palate, sick, etc.) and being over 35 adds less than 1% to that number. The effect of your age on a normal baby is not that significant.In many, age permits a broader outlook. ...Read more
My friend was wondering if smoking pot while pregnant can cause harm to the baby and or get her child taken away i told her it isn't good is it or not?
Yes to both: Pot use during pregnancy is linked to smaller baby head size.A link to later learning problems is controversial but likely. In my state, if they suspect & test, they will find the drug. Baby would go to foster care and mom would be charged with child endangerment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi my boyfriend and I had sex two days ago and he came in me nd he told me he came in me nd i mean we both wanted a child but its been two days i dont feel any symptoms I mean I'm wondering if I'm pregnant or not cause I really want the baby plzzz
Be patient: The process will take days before it occurs and weeks before you know.Sperm must enter and transit your system until they enter and attach to an egg in your tubes. If they do, a few days later the conceptus will enter the uterus and may attach.If it attaches, it develops further and begins making hormones that can give rise to symptoms.Couples take an ave of 6m to gain a wanted pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

As far as cyst is concerned will it cause complications in havinga child? More over I was recently pregnant.And was diagnosed with a tubical pregnancy
Hard to say: Many women have small cysts that never impair their fertility, while some have multiple cysts and do. I would worry that whatever problem led to your tubal pregnancy may have injured the other tube also.A natural pregnancy may not be possible.You may need to consult with a fertility center.If the tubes are impaired, you may need to bypass them with in vitro fertilization to get pregnant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does frequent driving long distances by a pregnant woman cause unusual stress on the unborn child?
Partially: When you sit in a car for a long time, there is a risk that you could prevent good circulation to your legs and the baby's placenta. When the blood cannot get back into your system from long sitting then you can get a blood clot. The reduced blood flow could also decrease blood flow to the baby. We usually suggest that pregnant women walk around every 30-45 minutes to prevent problems. ...Read more
