Questions: Some questions. When were you treated with the medication? Have you had any bleeding or cramping in the meantime? Checking progressive HCG levels would be helpful in determining if your current pregnancy is resolving. It is best to use contraception until your current pregnancy is resolved to make sure there is no confusion concerning the pregnancy. ...Read more

Very unlikely.: After any termination of pregnancy, the pregnancy hormone called BHCG must be followed.
This hormone tells the body that a pregnancy is present.
After the termination, you have arrangements to have blood tests to make sure that this hormone is decreasing and ultimately reaches zero.
As long as this hormone is present, your body thinks that it is pregnant.
This hormone goes down gradually. ...Read more

We really can't: Advise you about having an abortion on HealthTap Basic (which is HealthTaps general health & medical education side). Consider consultation with your Dr or an obstetrician. Learn about options at Planned Parenthood Associates. I understand that although abortion is legal in Cape Town, that many abortions are done by illegal Clinics.

Stop having sex!: You should not be having intercourse of any kind. Your cervix (the opening to the uterus) could still be open and you are really risking an infection. Please wait until you have seen your gyno who can help you determine when it is safe to resume intercourse. ...Read more

My cousin of 6months pregnant having low line placnta. If she travel about 7 to 8 hrs in train often is there a chance for abortion or any problem?

My cousin of 6months pregnant having low line placnta. If she travel about 7 to 8 hrs in train often is there a chance for abortion or any problem?

Placenta problems: The short answer is yes, there is always a chance of abortion or a problem if you're pregnant. I would not recommend an 8 hour trip for a pregnant woman with this or any other obstetric problem. Low lying' placenta that has it's insertion near the opening of the uterus can cause bleeding and is a big problem during delivery but at 6 months gestation your cousin should not be delivering. Good luck. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Most women who have had an abortion have no problem conceiving in the future. Having said that, as women get older, pregnancy is more difficult to attain. If they did a surgical abortion, the endometrium could be affected and a very small percentage of patients can develop uterine adhesions that can prevent pregnancy or increase pregnancy loss. ...Read more

Abortion: Pregnancy hormone levels can remain positive for approximately 30 days after an abortion. It also depends if you had a surgical therapy for a miscarriage or a natural abortion.

I had a medical abortion 6 weeks ago, could a blood pregnant test still say positive?

Yes: It is vitally important to do weekly blood pregnancy tests until the value goes to non pregnant, usually 0-5 in most labs. If it does not, there is a possibility of an abnormal pregnancy known as a "molar pregnancy", either complete or partial. A value that does not go to 0 may also indicate incomplete emptying of your uterus. In any case at some point a d and c may be needed to clarify the issue. ...Read more

I had an abortion one month ago... And I am pregnant again I want to know what are my chances of miscarry?

1/4 like anyone else: ~25% of early pregnancies result in fetal loss in the first trimester (mostly). Your risk to miscarry is not increased with one prior loss, so you should still have the above risk, just like everyone else. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily to prevent fetal loss and preterm birth while preventing many fetal anomalies. Good luck! ...Read more

Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

For most people, having intercourse every other day during that time helps chance of pregnancy. Chance of pregnancy is about 15% per cycle. Many things impact that rate. Good luck. ...Read more

I believe I became pregnant last Monday (10 days ago. Have confirmed I am currently pregnant), can I still take plan b and it'll work? I can't afford an abortion. Please help

I'm afraid not: Plan B is very effective if taken up to 72 hours after an unprotected encounter. It is likely to still have good effect up to 5 days after the encounter. I'm afraid by day 10, the body will already be producing pregnancy-related hormones that will prevent Plan B from having any effect. A local Planned Parenthood is probably the best place to go or call for guidance, resources, and referral. ...Read more

Retained tissue?: It's possible that you have some retained tissue. It's also possible that your hormone level is dropping appropriately. I would recommend you see your doctor.
