Not typically: Not typically. Unless your miscarriage was due to trauma or something that could have injured the uterus. Most miscarriages are due to chromosomal abnormalities and nothing could have prevented them. Most women will wait a cycle before they try again, but there's no harm in trying whenever you want. Best of luck. ...Read more

May repeat test...: 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 (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

Should a womans cervix feel a certain way when checking for early pregnancy signs?

Should a womans cervix feel a certain way when checking for early pregnancy signs?

Myths: No. Please review your health class lessons. A fetus is not connected to its mother for about fourteen days after conception. The mother's body has no symptoms from pregnancy until this time when the fetus is big enough to be sharing blood and chemicals with her. True early pregnancy is symptom free.

Cervical shortening: The average cervix at 15 weeks is usually 3 cm or more, but what's more important is whether or not there was funneling. When the tech pushes on the uterus and the membranes and cervix appear to flatten out or even bulge through the cervix then you have funneling. If that happens they likely discuss using a pessary or elective cerclage. Prior preterm birth patients do get the length check early ...Read more
