It: It sounds like you may need some help managing your stress level throughout your pregnancy. Your doctor was right in regards to women having babies under extremely stressful situations, however that does not mean it was easy for them. They were under circumstances they could not control. At least you have the resources to manage this issue. I suggest you seek therapy from a licensed mental health professional. He/she can help you learn to manage your stress and help you get through this pregnancy as stress free as possible.
Try not to think of the worse and focus on positive outcomes such as a healthy, happy, pregnant mom to be.
I wish you the very best. ...Read more

It is important for you to understand that you did not do anything to cause this loss. Also, most women who experience a loss will be successful the next time. Just be sure to be seen early. ...Read more

D&c 10 weeks ago for blighted ovum at 12 weeks pg, bled for 4 days after then stopped but bleeding every time after orgasm now, why is this happening?

Still healing?: Orgasm induces vigorous contraction of Fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and vagina, which may lead to spotting blood from incompletely healing of mucosa from D&C. So, it's still logical to be patient and see as long as the spotting is slowly but surely becoming lighter and lighter. If spotting still lingers beyond 4-5 months after D&C, see your Gyn-doc for reassessment and counseling. Best wish... ...Read more
