are congenital abnormalities genetic?

Sometimes.

Open-uri20120821-12615-4i3k56
Although it's true that most congenital anomalies (duodenal atresia, ventricular septal defect) have some (currently known or unknown) genetic underpinning, some clearly do not (amniotic band deformation sequence, hydranencephaly, gastroschisis, porencephaly) and some are due to teratogenic exposures unrelated to genetic information (valproic acid, paroxetine, coumadin, enalapril, alcohol).

Congenital abnormalities are physical differences in the body that are present at birth;each body part has the potential to have an anomaly.Some are genetic,some are due to things that happen in the womb,& some happen for unknown reasons.These differences can vary from minor anomalies (like an extra finger or an ear tag) that don't affect function,to major defects that can be fatal.

Dr. Allen Seely answered:

How common are babies born with congenital abnormalities?

2--3%, up to 7%

Baby
The usual QUOTED rate is as low as 2-3%. However in one PROSPECTIVE study of the outcome of 5,964 pregnancies the incidence rose to 7%! The cause of 40-60% of congenital anomalies in humans is unknown. These are referred to as sporadic, a term that implies an unknown cause, random occurrence regardless of maternal living conditions.

I'm concerned. What symptoms go with congenital abnormalities?

It Depends

Congenital_abnormalities
Congenital abnormality is a very broad and non-specific term. Symptoms will depend on which organs (body parts) are affected. Typically functions of those organs may be affected, sometimes though you may have congenital abnormalities which will be without any symptoms.

Is it genes or lifestyle or both that make it likely to get congenital abnormalities?

Congenital anomalies

Radioactive
Your background human risk of having a baby with a congenital anomaly is 2 - 3 %. Breaking down the causes of congenital anomalies finds that 90% have some genetic component. Only 10% are caused by things happening during the pregnancy, such as illnesses, infections, exposure to radiation, drugs, and chemicals. So the genetic component is far more associated with anomalies than any lifestyle issue

Probably

Open-uri20130103-21461-1bvchfh
This type of pattern can be consistent with a non-viable pregnancy, but you should see your OB Clinician in order to make a diagnosis and to make sure you do not have an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening. There is a 1:85 chance of delivering a baby with Down's Syndrome at the age of 41 at delivery; 1:65 at the age of 42 at delivery.
