Could Having General Anesthesia Just Before Conception Be Dangerous To My Baby
Is it possible to be well into 1st trim w/o knowing? Worried if sex would cause any issues for baby. Wouldnt i feel cramping all time?
Being Pregnant: Are you pregnant? Have you missed a period? Is this all theoretical? Cramping is not a symptom of early pregnancy. It is a symptom of infection or premenstrual problems. Pregnant uteruses try to keep the uterus stable and not try to expel the fetus. Most couples continue their sexual activity throughout pregnancy. ...Read more
I need to have my remaining teeth pulled during my pregnancy. Is laughing gas harmful to the fetus? Also, what pain meds after the procedure are safe
Yes : I would advise you to avoid the extractions until after your pregnancy is completed if possible. If you must have the extractions i would avoid nitrous oxide, usually, obstetricians allow tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain but the obstetrician should be consulted. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I just found out today that I am 2-3 weeks pregnant and i'm due to be sedated for a minor dental operation tomorrow, can this effect the pregnancy?
Yes, reschedule: There is risk (small) of problems during the first trimester of pregnancy with any dental work. If it is a minor procedure you are scheduled for, why take the risk to you and the baby, no matter how small?! rescedule for sometime during your second trimester--by then the risk is almost non-existent. If you wait til third tri, you might be too uncomfortable because of the baby's size. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When a pregnant woman has a c-section, is she able to be awake during a major surgery, and not under anesthesia. Or am i missing something?
Yes: For a c-section the preferred mode of anesthesia is a spinal. In these cases a small amount of local anesthetic and opiate is injected next to the spinal cord. This results in the patient being numb from the chest down. This is preferred because it is safer than putting a pregnant woman to sleep and it allows the mother to immediately see her new child. ...Read more

I heard that getting a dental X-ray without a shield during thefirst 8 weeks of pregnancy can cause organ problems to the baby. Is it true? I am worried about mine.
Be Careful: It is always wise to shield vital organs whenever you are having dental xrays taken. When you are pregnant it is advisable to double shield your abdonem. That means placing one shield from neck to knees and another shield across your abdomen. The risk is small, but it is not worth taking a chance of having the radiation causing changes in any rapidly growing cells (the fetus). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
My daughter is 9 months, I had csection w/ her due to her being a breech baby. Can I try vbac? There might be a possibility that I might be pregnant.
You can try,: I would recommend waiting until your daughter's first birthday to attempt future pregnancies. You should talk to your obstetrician about trial of labor after cesarean section (tolac), taking into account that the risks associated with it can only be offset by future pregnancies. If you want only one more pregnancy i would recommend repeat cesarean section and bilateral tubal ligation (btl). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had gen. anesthesia today, will it affect my sperm or be dangerous for the baby? We are trying to have a baby and my wife just got a + test foR ovul
No impact on either: The only question I'd expect is if you'd be able to perform sex and ejaculate - if you are - there is no reason to think anesthesia will have an effect on sperm or the potential baby. I hope your procedure heals well and - since you want a baby - that it happens for you. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wisdom teeth: Unless it is an emergency, elective surgery should wait until after the baby is born. If removal of the wisdom teeth for any reason cannot wait, the safest time is during the 2nd trimester. In any case always check with both your ob /gyn and your oral surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
