Does taking creatine for bodybuilding give you a higher chance that your child will have birth defects?

Creatine

Congenital_malformation
Creatine is a naturally occurring substance that is made from amino acids. The human body makes creatine. Half of the creatine in the human body is made by the body and the other half is from food sources. Since this is a natural product of the human body and found in many foods, it does not cause birth defects.

What is the drug they used to give to pregnant women to treat acne that caused birth defects?

Isotretinoin

Open-uri20120708-23169-d54m2z
Accutane, Amnesteem, Claravil, & Sotret are all Category "X" drugs and cause fetal birth defects and/or loss. It needs to be stopped immediately and see your OB or Physician ASAP for evaluation. Prescribers of these meds have to ensure effective birth control and get written acknowledgement from their patients of the known teratogenicity.

Dr. David Bergman answered:

If I used something doctors used to give to pregnant women to stop morning sickness is it possible that caused birth defects?

Morning sickness

Pregnancy
Depends upon the medication taken. There are currently many medications available for morning sickness that have been well researched and not shown to be associated with birth defects. Discussing which medication was taken will help in guiding you about possible effects on this pregnancy.

What are birth defects from anticonvulsants?

But realize this

Anticonvulsant
Most congenital malformations occur without presence of epilepsy drugs which may increase risk by 50-100% depending on agent. Watch out for Depakote, which has especial risk of spina bifida and mental retardation in kids, and Dilantin which does cause a specific birth syndrome. Newer drugs may be far safer.

What are the causes of birth defects that are preventable?

Pretty limited

Congenital_malformation
Some birth defects such as fetal alcohol syndrome, defects associated with use of accutane during pregnancy, and neural tube defect associated with folic acid deficiency are some examples whose occurrence can be minimized at least if not totally preventable.

What causes premature birth labour?

No one thing

Labor
In America about 12% of women deliver prematurly (before 37 weeks). Sometimes there is an obvious reason like infection, abruption, premature membrane rupture, trauma, history of premature delivery, multiple gestation (twins, triplets, etc). However, the majority of preterm deliveries do not have an obvious cause, and we never know why.

What are the causes of heart birth defects?

Genes, environ, luck

Open-uri20130806-4015-1e73noe
A mix of genetics, exposure & chance. The formation of the heart is a very complex process as a simple vascular tube transforms into a specialized pump intertwining 2 separate circulations. Sometimes cells fail to migrate or grow-->may lead to septal defects. Structures may not form, and if they interfere with bloodflow (e.g., valve not opening), then downstream structures don't grow or develop.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

Which birth defects are the most problematic to fix?

Varies

Congenital_malformation
That varies tremendously. Some are minor and don't need fixing. Some are very severe and can't be fixed at all. Many are in between; they might not be completely fixable, but the right doctor might be able to make the problem considerably better.
