Does repeated and/or monthly use of Plan B one step cause infertility? Or increase risk of breast cancer?
Plan B: Plan b is only a high dose of birth control medication. You run the same risks taking Plan B as you would taking birth control however you do not take it for long periods of time rather you just take high doses occasionally when needed. If you are concerned about the side effects of taking birth control you may want to look into using different methods of birth control rather than hormones. I do not believe there is any documentation supporting infertility. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Fetus's tissue testing on D&C (8 weeks and 2nd early MC) showed turners syndrome in the feutus. Future pregnancy implications of this? Any precautions
Generally no: In general, in each subsequent pregnancy, the chance of having another pregnancy affected by Turner syndrome would not be increased given that it occurs due to a random error in the splitting of chromosomes during the creation of sperm usually, though sometimes also the egg.

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?
At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
