I have recently suffered my second pregnancy loss and would like to speak to someone on how soon to see a perinatologist?

Need more info: Have you been under a care of an OBGYN for these pregnancy losses, and if so has s/he done a workup? A general OB/GYN should be able to start the workup (looking for genetic abnormalities in the fetuses if available as that is the most common cause and usually not persistently recurring; medical conditions such as thyroid dysfunction, diabetes and clotting disorders that predispose to blood clots) ...Read more

Hello I would really love to talk about my period because today I've started this morning and it just stopped please sir would you tell me if this is about a pregnancy or something please contact me today or as soon as possible?

Hello I would really love to talk about my period because today I've started this morning and it just stopped please sir would you tell me if this is about a pregnancy or something please contact me today or as soon as possible?

Many reasons: A formal consultation would be really helpful for you, I think. There are lots of reasons why a young woman might get unexpected menstrual bleeding, such as a hormonal dysregulation. A gynecological exam would also help to make sure that the bleeding is actually from the uterus and not the cervix or vagina. If you missed a period then definitely get a pregnancy test. Contraception can be helpful. ...Read more

Hi, I am now 5 days late on my period. I am scared to talk to my parents about a possible pregnancy occurency. I am scared to death. Can you help me?

One step at a time..: Being scared is understandable but don't let fear paralyze you. If you have a good relationship with your parents, its always best to be open with them. You can also go to the drug store and get a home pregnancy test. You can find out if your suspicions are correct. You can also get free medical care and pregnancy tests at your local health department. Take one step at a time. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is progesterone safe to take at 8 weeks of pregnancy? Will it cause any birth defects? Progesterone level at 8.9. Still waiting to talk to my obgyn.

Progesterone: I use progesterone fairly frequently for a low progesterone. There are some risk, but honestly I've been using 1st trimester progesterone for a very long time and never had an issue. I usually treat for level less than 8, but some OB's will treat with higher levels. I prefer prometrium (micronized progesterone). ...Read more

I had a question bout pregnancy. I had sex on the 25 an I not sure is that around theĀ ?

Urine pregnancy test: If a woman had sex (no birth control) 5 days ago, she can get pregnant. Pregnancy is more likely if the sex was some day between 1 week after the start of the last period, through a few days past the middle of the monthly cycle. Since many women have trouble figuring the days, a woman should just check a urine pregnancy test if her next period is missed or is different than her usual periods. ...Read more

My question is that with active motility semen 25% pregnancy can be achieved. My reports as?

Low. ...: Low sperm motility at 25% alone already indicates much lower than the "normal" probability to impregnate a proper female - of course, not impossible. Yet, the volume, viscosity, liquefaction time, total sperm count, sperm concentration, sperm maturity, etc. Of semen also provides some useful insights into the probability of a man's fertility. If needed or in doubt, ask Doc timely for detail. ...Read more

Ovaries: Ovaries are the sources of hormones of pregnancy and menstrual cycle. When a uterus is removed, many of the symptoms of a period are gone, but not all.
