Not normal: Please see your doctor to determine the cause and to stop the bleeding. You should supplement with iron tablets to help your body renew blood cells, but see your doctor as soon as possible. ...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

I just had spinal fusion may of last year I am now 21w 4d pregnant would I have to have a c-section or would my pregnancy cause me to have redo fusion?

Pregnancy spinal fus: Pregnancy should not affect a fusion that is over a year old. A c-section should also not be required from previous arthrodesis. Back pain will probably increase as the baby grows. Continue to do core exercises to lower the risk of chronic pain in the last part of your gestation. Good luck. ...Read more

Sex and pregnancy how long after c-section can a woman have sex?...Also how long after should she start doing house work again?

Sex and pregnancy how long after c-section can a woman have sex?...Also how long after should she start doing house work again?

Most : Most doctors say to wait 6 weeks, however i tell patients that they can resume sex when they feel comfortable (i.e. No pain in stomach, scar healed). Some patients feel fine to have sex 2 weeks later. Everyone's recovery time is different. Light housework 2 weeks after a c-sec. Should be fine, and customary housework at 6 weeks. Again i will state that you should go at your own pace, resume activities when you are comfortable. Good luck to you. ...Read more

I'm 35 yrs and have had 2 children via c-section. I now want 1 more child, but had my tubes tied with the last pregnancy.Is this possible or advisabl?

I'm 35 yrs and have had 2 children via c-section.  I now want 1 more child, but had my tubes tied with the last pregnancy.Is this possible or advisabl?

Fresh eggs: From your age i assume you still have a basket full of chances.It may be technically a problem as getting tubes to work again after they were tied is not always successful. A fertility dr could help you ovulate & harvest some eggs through a laparoscope. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Difficult & expensive but possible. ...Read more

I had intercouse 3 days into the period cycle. Now after my period am seeing a white transparent discharge(a little).Do this mean that i am pregnent becuase we dont want to be. Last pregnancy was C-section(18 months back. Next period is 16days away.

No Relation: The fact that you noticed a small amount of white transparent discharge following your period does not suggest that you are pregnant. If you truly do not want to be pregnant, then I strongly suggest that you see your clinician to initiate a highly effective method of contraception. In the meantime use condoms consistently. If you miss your next period, check a home pregnancy test. Take Care. ...Read more

Since my last pregnancy (csection w/tubal) 2.5 yrs ago I have longer periods and spotting light brown discharge. The whole thing lasts for 2 wks.Prob?

Since my last pregnancy (csection w/tubal) 2.5 yrs ago I have longer periods and spotting light brown discharge. The whole thing lasts for 2 wks.Prob?

Hormones out of sync: It is unlikely to be related to your cesarean, but possible hormonal variations after your pregnancy. This is more typical when women are older (over 35) when they undergo a pregnancy. I would consider a short cycle of birth control pills (if you don't smoke, don't have clot risks) to help get your hormones back in sync. ...Read more
