Why does c sections increase the risk of amniotic fluid embolism?

Why does c sections increase the risk of amniotic fluid embolism?

2 possibilities: The theoretical reason is that the operative delivery disrupts the tissues and allows amniotic fluid to more easily pass into the woman's blood vessels. But it's not entirely clear if this is a true risk or just an association. Women with suspected amniotic fluid embolism are rushed to c-section. So it's possible it's the other way around, amniotic fluid embolism increases risk of c-section. ...Read more

Does fish oil reduce the risk of preterm labor?

Nope.: Unfortunately, trials of nutritional supplementation to improve perinatal outcomes have pretty consistently failed to show any measurable improvement and some have even suggested there may be some risk.

Consume 1-2 serving of fish low in methylmercury (i.e. Not predatory/large) weekly. ...Read more

Can sudden and strong scare cause problem at 23 week of pregnancy?I am high risk pregnant, with history of PPROM, currently low cervix w/cerclage

You should be ok: Preterm Labor and/or weak cervix are very complex conditions. You already do have the best evidence based preventative tool in use: a cerclage. PERSISTENT high emotional stress is not good for your overall health, but a one time high stress event should not adversely affect your pregnancy. If you have leakage of fluid or persistant vaginal bloody discharge, seek MD eval. Otherwise you should be ok ...Read more

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

Yes: Actually, AFE is quite a rare event and, to a degree, independent of a patient's ruptured status. The general idea is that there is a breech and/or permeability of the of the natural blood-amniotic barriers. This allows products of pregnancy to, unaturally, enter the maternal circulation and cause catatrophic events (primarily in the lungs), culminating in death, oftentimes. ...Read more

I had preterm rupture of amniotic sac.My FSH is 17(range:3-12). AMH is high,AFC is high. Does high FSH and history of PPROM indicate poor egg quality?

I had preterm rupture of amniotic sac.My FSH is 17(range:3-12). AMH is high,AFC is high. Does high FSH and history of PPROM indicate poor egg quality?

High FSH/egg quality: I'm curious why you had your FSH level (assuming done day 3 of period) checked. For example, do you have a history of infertility and need treatment to aid in getting pregnant and this is an updated check? If you delivered recently and got pregnant without difficulty (esp. at your age), it's unlikely the FSH of 17 means anything for you as far as egg quality. PPROM per se not marker of egg qual. ...Read more
