Can progesterone supplement cause constipation or is it a sign of miscarriage in first trimester? Can constipation cause miscarriage itself?

Can progesterone supplement cause constipation or is it a sign of miscarriage in first trimester? Can constipation cause miscarriage itself?

Depend: Unless your constipation is so bad you are turning your uterus inside out by straining and dislodging the content of your uterus there is no direct relation between hormone and constipation, my confusion is if you are taking progesterone supplement how are you going to be pregnant regardless of your constipation. Hydration 6-8 liter of fluids and adequate fibers and exercise might help, eat fruits.

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. 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.

Clomid/pregnancy?: Clomid (clomiphene) from 7/23 to 7/27 is the appropriate time for taking clomid (clomiphene). If you are having irregular cycles, and are taking clomid (clomiphene) to induce predictable ovulation, the symptoms would not occur on the days taking the clomid (clomiphene) ("days 5-9") but could on day 12-14 and beyond. Pregnancy is always possible, but probably occurred a couple weeks before you started the clomid (clomiphene) this month.

I had a miscarriage 9wks ago and haven't had a period yet. Is this normal? I've had bloating, nausea, constipation and sore nipples. Could I be pregnant

I had a miscarriage 9wks ago and haven't had a period yet. Is this normal? I've had bloating, nausea, constipation and sore nipples. Could I be pregnant

Depends: If you had unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. Do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If the result is negative, repeat the test in 5-6 days. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Is it possible to have a miscarriage from straining to poop I've already had 4 miscarriages so I was just concerned I am almost a month late and I am getting constipated and having to stain so I just wanted to know if straining could cause a miscarriage

Is it possible to have a miscarriage from straining to poop I've already had 4 miscarriages so I was just concerned I am almost a month late and I am getting constipated and having to stain so I just wanted to know if straining could cause a miscarriage

I: I am so sorry that you have gone through four miscarriages. No, straining will not cause a miscarriage, but if you are having painful periods you could use a glycerin suppository to help. Or you can also go to a pharmacy and ask for a safe stool softener, telling the pharmacist that you are pregnant. Good luck to you with this pregnancy.

Had a late miscarriage gave birth last Saturday required a d and c in theatre have had constipstion and blood in stools now have diarrhea is this norm?

No: Sorry for your problem. If you were on pain medications then you may have become constipated. Constipation can sometimes cause a fissure and bleeding. If you were placed on antibiotics that may cause diarrhea but overall it is not expected and if it continues be re checked. All the best.

Not likely but: You are very early. Make sure you are on Folic Acid but bowel irregularity is not a sign of impending miscarriage, especially if you've ever been diagnosed with irritible bowel syndrome. Gd luck?

Check pregnancy test: Pregnancies with Implanon are not common. It is greater than 99% effective, but rarely there are failures. Check a pregnancy test then follow up with your doctor. It is not likely that you are pregnant so if the test is negative you need further evaluation to determine why you feel this way.
