Failed pregnancy. Baby stop growing @6wks. Which is better d&c or natural miscarriage... I don't want to have problem getting pregnant. In the future?

Failed pregnancy.  Baby stop growing @6wks. Which is better d&c or natural miscarriage... I don't want to have problem getting pregnant. In the future?

Depends: There are pros and cons to each option for terminating the pregnancy. A D&C is usually a better option if you just want things completed in a timely fashion, but there are surgical risks with this method. If by "natural miscarriage" you mean allowing your body to initiate the process, it is also an option. You may have more bleeding, it can take a month to complete and you still may need a d&c. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Why during my ovulation days i get pregnancy symptoms almost every month is the same thing but i end up not getting pregnant is that normal?

Why during my ovulation days i get pregnancy symptoms almost every month is the same thing but i end up not getting pregnant is that normal?

No Pregnancy Symptom: I think this is that you are very much misinformed. There are no specific pregnancy symptoms. There are hormone fluctuation symptoms that are hard to distinguish between period symptoms and times of hormonal fluctuation. Ovulation occurs because of hormone fluctuation. These are normal symptoms and do not in any way represent pregnancy. ...Read more

How long for u wait after a miscarriage to get pregnant again? What's the chance of getting pregnant again after miscarriage? Miscarried 2day 06/18.

How long for u wait after a miscarriage to get pregnant again? What's the chance of getting pregnant again after miscarriage? Miscarried 2day 06/18.

Wait for next period: Usually it's a good idea to wait until you've had a normal period. Part of the reason is that your next period after a miscarriage is often late, and waiting reduces the frustration of wondering if you're pregnant again. It also gives your body a chance to get completely back to normal before getting pregnant again. ...Read more

Need to get pregnant fast...7 month of marriage ,no sign of pregnancy...i have thyroid and im fat...will it effect the chances of getting pregnant?

Immensely: Thyroid dysfunction along with obesity seriously inhibit ovulatory function and therefore fertility. I thyroid medication is needed then it must be taken consistently as given by your MD. Weight reduction can assist as well in achieving a reasonable BMI(body mass index). At age 20 corrective measures are very hopeful for future pregnancy. ...Read more

I had my tubes tied 9 yrs ago and just recently remarried. We had a miscarriage in oct. 2011 how can we get pregnant again and how can we increase our chances of getting pregnant again and lower our risk of another miscarriage?

I had my tubes tied 9 yrs ago and just recently remarried. We had a miscarriage in oct. 2011 how can we get pregnant again and how can we increase our chances of getting pregnant again and lower our risk of another miscarriage?

I : I am assuming you had a reversal procedure. Please reply if otherwise. To help pin point ovulation thus having a better chance of conceiving buy an ovulation prediction kit and follow the detailed instructions. As far as lowering the risk of miscarriage, this is nearly impossible. Most pregnancies that end in miscarriage are a result of the fetus having a chromosomal defect that is incompatible with life. There are other causes of miscarriage (clotting disoders etc.) but these are not usually considered until a woman has 3 miscarriages. Please see your doctor; after obtaining a detailed history from you and your partner he/she will be able to give more applicable advice. I wish you the best of luck. ...Read more

I want to have twins ...I have no problem getting pregnant ...I was hoping i could use a fertility druck my bio dad is a twin im 23 years after I have my next pregnancy i was to get fixed ... What can I do?

I want to have twins ...I have no problem getting pregnant ...I was hoping i could use a fertility druck my bio dad is a twin im 23 years after I have my next pregnancy i was to get fixed ... What can I do?

Be : Be careful what you wish for ... Twins are more high risk than a single baby, although most twins do fine with good OB and neonatal care, some twins have long-term problems, some are premature and some don't even make it to viability and are born before 24 weeks. The risk of cerebral palsy, a serious birth defect, is 4 - 5 times higher in twins compared to a single baby. You have a higher chance of pregnancy complications including serous ones like preeclampsia or placental abruption, a higher risk of c/section, and even a very slight increase in divorce rate. I know the media and anne geddes and other baby photographers all love to show pictures of cute twins all dressed up ... The kids with cerebral palsy are generally not shown on the front cover of a magazine. Couples who need treatment for infertility, from simple treatments like Clomid to advanced treatments such as in vitro fertilization (ivf), often have an increased risk of twins if more than one egg is released with fertility medications, or if more than one embryo is replaced into a woman's uterus after ivf. If we're treating couples for infertility who can't get pregnant on their own twins may be an acceptable risk of the treatment. Many couples tell me they want twins - they have been trying for a baby for one or many years, and many couples want two babies total and would love to have twins and 'be done'. We do our best to avoid triplets or more, though. In this case the risk of twins is justified by the benefit of treatment of their infertility. If you don't have any problems getting pregnant your natural chance of twins is about 1%. I don't recommend going to an ob/gyn or fertility md just because you want twins (wanting twins for "social reasons") - if you end up with complications to you or the babies, would it be worthwhile compared with just having two more kids separately? I would not recommend "getting fixed" in your early 20's until you are 100% sure that you're done either, we have great birth control options like the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud which is about as effective as having your tubes tied but reversible if you have one more child and then want another one later. I know this is not the answer you want. Best wishes. ...Read more
