Should too many ultrasounds be avoided? Could they cause miscarriage, especially in early pregnancy?

US only when necess.: Ultrasound (us) is a very safe examination. However, it should be used only when necessary to properly care for the patient or fetus.

Why? Us uses high frequency sound waves that we cannot hear, but do have energy. Some us techniques involving doppler to look at blood flow are even more energetic.

We do not know for sure what that energy could do to a fetus or embryo, so no us unless necessar. ...Read more

My friend had a miscarriage at 17 weeks. She then fell pregnant again and lost the second baby at exactly 17 weeks again. Both boys. Causes please?

My friend had a miscarriage at 17 weeks. She then fell pregnant again and lost the second baby at exactly 17 weeks again. Both boys. Causes please?

Incompetent cervix: If this was a problem because of abnormalities with the baby/fetus, such as chromosome abnormalities, I would expect the miscarriage to occur much earlier - usually within the first trimester. The fact it occurred when it did in mid-second trimester and almost exactly the same time/weight/gestational size - make me very suspicious for a problem with your cervix opening and shortening too early. ...Read more

How does low progestrone cause miscarriage (in brief)? How far along in pregnancy does this kind of MC usually happen? Pls no website links. Thank you

Progesterone: Low progesterone, also referred to a luteal phase defect is most likely to produce a first trimester miscarriage. Most often 5 1/2-8 weeks, though your LMP based gestational age may say you're further along when it is discovered as it may take a week or two to get symptoms. The placenta takes over progesterone production around 12 weeks, which is why this is a first trimester issue ...Read more

I didn't know I was pregnant and I pulled a heavy pool with water in it and my son, could that cause a miscarriage if I didn't know I was pregnancy?

I didn't know I was pregnant and I pulled a heavy pool with water in it and my son, could that cause a miscarriage if I didn't know I was pregnancy?

Wouldn't think so: Once attached to the uterus the embryo is rather well insulated against the normal goings on in a persons life. I've followed a jazzercise instructor through pregnancy that routinely went through more physical maneuvers than a Navy seal and never had a problem. Miscarriage, when it occurs is most often due to a problem with the fetus, not the incubator. ...Read more

I'm 34wks pregnant, 38yrs, on clexane 40mg for 8mnths. My gyn told me we'll go for ceserean cause I had 2 previous miscarriages (1rst trimster).Is it true?

I'm 34wks pregnant, 38yrs, on clexane 40mg for 8mnths. My gyn told me we'll go for ceserean cause I had 2 previous miscarriages (1rst trimster).Is it true?

No: There is no need for a cesarean because you had 2 miscarriages. There may be several other reasons to suggest a cesarean (baby's position, baby not tolerating labor, no progress in labor, etc.), but not miscarriages. Question your gyn on why that history should make a difference on the delivery method. ...Read more
