Why would my dr send me for a quantitative bloodtest, without progesterone test if worried for mc? Or why is dr sending me at all?

Why would my dr send me for a quantitative bloodtest, without progesterone test if worried for mc? Or why is dr sending me at all?

GYN: You will need both a transvaginal ultrasound if not already done and an endometrial biopsy and PAP smear. I suggest asking your GYN about these exams and medication to control your bleeding; however, D&C is a definitive procedure. ...Read more

Could be: A blood HCG level of 25 is consistent with pregnancy. However, since we do not have record of serial HCG levels, there is some doubt. You may wish to ask your doctor and discuss if an ultrasound examination may be helpful. ...Read more

Scared to have a miscarriage. Scared I'm going to go to the dr a d find no heartbeat. What are the chances? I'm 7w 3d and had a mc in sept.

Last mc was 9/10 had intercourse 9/23 got papsmear dr said cervix was blue only seen in pregnant women when the soonest I can take a pt?

Best: 10/8/14: If your periods are regular, 28 days apart, the BEST day to test is the date of your expected next period: 10/8. Some pregnancy tests are 50% accurate 4 days (10/4) before your expected period but what good is wasting your money on a 50% accurate test. ... you still don't know one way or the other for sure. If not 28 day cycles, adjust to 14 days after you think you ovulated. ...Read more

Clarify: I think you are asking if you can be referred to a maternal fetal medicine expert instead of a regular obgyn. If that is the case simply request to be referred. If she is offended you may need to get a second opinion. ...Read more

I recently had a mc & now I have a odd vagina odor, is it possible that my dr could just prescribe me antibiotics just in case of an infection?

I recently had a mc & now I have a odd vagina odor, is it possible that my dr could just prescribe me antibiotics just in case of an infection?

Need an exam: It's never the best option to prescribe antibiotics without an exam. The reason for the odor should be determined, and the location of the infection should be clarified. For example, a simple vaginitis might be treated with a vaginal cream, but a uterine infection might require stronger oral antibiotics. ...Read more

I'm having midcycle bleeding 2mths after micarriage & d&c. I've had one normal cycle. Could this be related to the mc?

Probably: There's a very good chance it's due to the miscarriage. Your body's hormonal axis was basically ripped out of a pregnancy state. It's a very abrupt change in hormone levels and just like happens when you change to a new birth control pill, it can take a while to normalize again. I know that's overly simplified, bit the best short explanation I have. Be sure to let your OB know your concern. ...Read more

I just found out I am preg. 4weeks. I am a smoker, I have put in a plan of action 2 quit by 7 wks. Can I have a bigger risk of mc for not quit b4?

I just found out I am preg. 4weeks. I am a smoker, I have put in a plan of action 2 quit by 7 wks. Can I have a bigger risk of mc for not quit b4?

Thank you: Thank you for putting it out there to quit smoking.
You don't have any more risk quitting now than later. But if you have your quit date go for it. Your baby is thanking you as well.
Tell your friends for support. Have a list of things to do when you have withdraws. Take the money spent on cigarettes and save for something special after the baby is born.

Good luck, I am cheering you on. ...Read more
