I have IVF missed  abortion 8 weeks   have bleed large clots gy  say i has hematoma embryo was growing normaly and just die was embryo chromz.Abnormal?

Likely: Sorry about the bad news. Yes. Most likely this was a problem with the embryo and not with you. It is good that you got pregnant. This often bodes well for future ivf cycle success. Most embryo problems this early in pregnancy are chromosomal issues. Please speak with your doctor about your particular situation. Take care and best of luck. ...Read more

Im in a country where abortion is illegal, i'm 27 yo, healthy and 8~ weeks.  I can get mtprost from a friend. Should I take 1 or 2 doses?

Dosing is on the web: This reminds me how lucky we are to live in the United States, where women are free. Misoprostol info is online: http://www.Iwhc.Org/index.Php?Option=com_content&task=view&id=3747&itemid=614 (and other sites). Dosing varies, but for a 4-12 weeker, is about 800 mcg vaginally every 3-12 hours for 3 doses. Sublingual (under tongue) is every 3 hours. Look for the baby fetus, the size of a kidney bean. ...Read more

I think i'm having a mental breakdown lately IV been having panic/or rage attacks that r almost everyday is abortion 8 weeks ago causing this ?

Panic and rage: Many feelings including extreme grief are possible after an abortion. Your situation and response to this procedure is unique to all others, and deserves care ; concern. I suggest you see your doctor about this, and possibly also a psychiatrist to review what you're experiencing. It may or may not be related only to the abortion. Your relationship to the baby's father is important also. ...Read more

8 weeks preg. had abortion last march, have low lying placenta now, what are the risks?& can I air fly (5 hrs) on week 11 or 12?

8 weeks preg. had abortion last march, have low lying placenta now, what are the risks?& can I air fly (5 hrs) on week 11 or 12?

Normal: A low lying placenta is common in early pregnancy and usually migrates upward as the pregnancy progresses and the uterus grows. Unless there are other possible complications flying should be fine in week 11 or 12. Discuss it with your OB first however to be sure. Your doctor knows your full history and can give you the best answer. Best wishes to you and the baby. ...Read more
