I Missed My 6 Week Checkk Up After Having A Baby Do You Need To Have One
I had a baby 6 weeks ago. Do i need to have my period after i give birth to be pregnant again in that 6 week period time
Hi. 4 months ago I had a missed abort at 7 week. I want to know if I should do again TORCH test,because i have done it once before 6 months. thanks a lot?
Do you need to ovulate to get a period? I had a d&c 6 weeks ago and i haven't had my period and opk's are all negative any help?
Not unusual: Yes you do, you can only have a spontaneous period (meaning without medicines) if you have ovulated. If you had a d;c 6 weeks ago it wouldn't be unusual to have not ovulated yet; i'd guess you still have detectable HCG (pregnancy hormone) in your system. You could have this checked; when it drops to zero you should start cycling again. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have preeclampsia 2011 and stillbirth 6 months.What test should should be done before i get pregnan to tell if im going to have preeclampsia again?
Please make an appt : To see your OB as your OB has your old records or can get them, and can refer you to a perinatologist for a consult before you get pregnant and based on your health and your previous pregnancy they will order any appropriate testing, but they will not be able to predict with certainty one way or the other if u will definitetly get it again but just from your hx u are at higher risk to get it again. ...Read more
I am pregnant. I have got syrinx in my c6-c7 and I have minor symptoms. I need to get a check up MRI done. I haven't had one in five years. Could the MRI be dangerous to the baby or should I wait for 10 months?
Not a problem: A simple, non contrast MRI of this area would pose no risk to the baby. Any contrast agent would need to be assessed and cleared by your OB before i would consider use. If you've waited 5 years, i'm not sure why waiting another would be so bad, yet MRI by itself is not a risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a few questions? I haven't had my period since november 12, 2011. Could i be pregnant? Im afarid to take the home pregneany test, cause everyone of them have been negative. I need help what should I do? When should I start to worry the longer that
The : The only way to know whether you are pregnant or not is for you to take a pregnancy test. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a sexually active woman is missing a period, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise, illness or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If your pregnancy test is negative and you continue to not have your period, you should contact your doctor. ...Read more
I am going to see a doctor next week to see why I haven't had period for 8 minths. Will she have to look and feel down there?
I am pregnant 5 weeks and 6 days when should I go to doctor for checkup, i had hpt at home and came positive, and can I eat lychee during pregnancy.
Now, more or less: If you have not seen an obstetrician to establish a patient/doctor relationship, but your pregnancy test was positive almost 6 weeks ago, you should get a prompt appointment for a first prenatal checkup. You want to make sure all your blood tests are normal, perhaps have fetal abnormality testing, perhaps have a first ultrasound examination, and find an obstetric practice with which you are happy. ...Read more

By : By the date of this post about a week has passed. I am sorry your question was not answered sooner. To use your question as an example, i would recommend in a situation like this to see a medical professional if the bleeding is very heavy( as in what you described in your post). A blood transfusion is often needed and possibly a d&c, a surgical procedure to clean out the uterus. Please give us an update. I hope you are well. ...Read more
Why do I have to repeat my STD and sts test multiply times during pregnancy? My medical nurse sent me and do a STD and sts test at 6 weeks in my pregnancy and now I am 3 months I have to repeat it, why?...I heard someone once mention something about anti
Honestly : Honestly I am not quite sure what you are referring to regarding the antibodies. The only reason to do repeated std testing is if you are at high risk. This information would have been obtained during the first prenatal visit. I encourage you to ask your doctor why the testing is being repeated. Always make sure you get all your questioned answered. All the best. ...Read more

Can i get pregnant without having a period.I was place on birth control for a yr for cyst .Now im off birth control for 6 months no period what should I do want a baby .Do u recommend sex every night .
See REI for testing: No period means you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) every month. We need to find out why: polycystic ovarian sydrome (pcos), thyroid or prolactin issues, aging of the ovary (low egg numbers), or low hormone levels (hypogonadism). See a reproductive endocrinologist for tests / treatment to help you conceive. You can still get prego with no period if you ovulate once. Sex 3 times a week is ok. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
