I'm 8 weeks pregnant today and my morning sickness and fatigue like completely went away, I'm worried about miscarriage. Could that be a sign?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant today and my morning sickness and fatigue like completely went away, I'm worried about miscarriage. Could that be a sign?

Morning sickness: It is not unusual for the sickness symptoms to get better. It is true the sickness can last longer but sometimes it gets better sooner. Perhaps you are further along in your pregnancy. Miscarriage is always still a risk in the first few months so getting an ultrasound will help you see if there is a good heartbeat and pregnancy. ...Read more

Recently had 2 day period, very fatigued. Miscarriage last yr at 1 month, but normal period and was very tired just like now. Can be pregnant again?

Yes but. . .: I'm sorry for your loss. Yes, you can be pregnant again but only if you've engaged in unprotected sex. Once your period is late, take pregnancy test to confirm (tests are useless if you're not late). Go see your Family Doc, OB/GYN or Planned Parenthood to discuss your need for contraception, preconception counseling or prenatal care. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage in May. Ever since I've had extreme fatigue, pain, nausea, migraines, and mild depression. As well as long cycles. Is this normal?

I had a miscarriage in May. Ever since I've had extreme fatigue, pain, nausea, migraines, and mild depression. As well as long cycles. Is this normal?

No: MOther than the mild depression (if it is because of the loss of the pregnancy) - those symptoms are not common, especially so long (5 months) after the miscarriage. (the heavy cycles can be normal, but best to see your doctor and have a sonogram and make sure nothing unusual with the lining of your uterus). The emotional stress of the loss may well contribute to the fatigue, migraines and other ...Read more

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. Spotting on Depo-Provera is normal. The pain can be evaluated by an obgyn. ...Read more

Miscarriage on September. Unprotected all October, got period. Now 2 weeks after period tender breasts and fatigue. Pregnancy?

Not if a real period: But, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Miscarried 3 weeks ago. Trying again, breast tenderness and fatigue now. Wondering how soon I can test? I haven't had a period since miscarriage.

Miscarried 3 weeks ago. Trying again, breast tenderness and fatigue now. Wondering how soon I can test? I haven't had a period since miscarriage.

Pregnancy testing: You can do a home urine pregnancy test at any point. Then repeat weekly if it's negative. Breast tenderness and fatigue are very "non-specific" symptoms so can be from hormonal imbalances or the period just trying to get back on track. Most women resume regular periods within 6 weeks of a miscarriage. Feel free to contact me if the situation continues to be confusing. Dr. C. Portland. ...Read more

Anemia, Fe deficiency: It sounds as though you may need an evaluation for a bleeding disorder, structural problems with the uterus like fibroids or adenomyosis, or an anti-phospholipid syndrome. But first things first. See OB. You need blood tests, CBC, iron panel, B12 and then replenishment of the lost elements needed to build blood cells. Birth control needs to be carefully considered.

I thought I had an early miscarriage, but I still feel like I am pregnant because of symptoms such as tiredness & frequent urination?

See a Dr for tests: See an OB doctor for a blood pregnancy test - this is the best way to determine if you're still pregnant. The 'worst case scenario' is an ectopic pregnancy (tubal pregnancy) which can be an emergency. If you have two or more miscarriages, if it took a year or more to get pregnant, or if you're 35 or over, see a fertility specialist (rei) for help getting pregnant again. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Cycle after miscarry: After a miscarriage, the usual advice is to wait 3 months of cycling before trying again to make sure your body gets back to normal. This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well. You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you. ...Read more
