A: A person should see a doctor for an infertility evaluation when they meet the diagnostic criteria for infertility or they have a medical history that makes it obvious that they cannot get pregnant. The diagnostic criteria for infertility are based on age. At age 22, you meet the criteria for infertility if you have been at risk for pregnancy 12 months or more and have not conceived. I like to separate the concept of "trying" from being "at risk" for pregnancy. Many of my patients have been sexually active and not on a contraceptive method for many months but have only started "trying" for a limited number of months. I ask them to think back and calculate the total number of months that they could have gotten pregnant and have not. In your case, if that number is greater than 12, then you need to see your ob/gyn or an infertility specialist.

As far as medical history factors that would justify an earlier visit, if someone has had an infection or surgery that has caused them to lose the function of both fallopian tubes, there is no need to wait before seeking help. If someone is clearly not having periods at all or very infrequently, they should seek help right away. If someone does an ovulation predictor kit at home and they are not showing a positive for approximately 3 months then they should seek help right away. These are some of the reasons to go directly to an evaluation. It is always a good idea to let your primary care giver know that you are trying to get pregnant. They can do a comprehensive review of your medical history and identify any other factors which would warrant and expedited evaluation.

From you past miscarriage you know that you ovulate at least sometimes, that at least one of your tubes was working a year ago as was your partner's sperm. Probably the best thing for you to do is to get an ovulation predictor kit and document ovulation. When doing this, you should not abstain from intercourse until the kit turns positive. If you are having intercourse 2 to 3 times a week already then just continue that. If intercourse is less frequent, start having every other day intercourse when you start using the ovulation predictor kit making sure that you have intercourse before it turns positive and then the day or the day after it turns positive.

Good luck! ...Read more

I have just found out I'm pregnant and had a miscarriage last year so I'm really worried about this the doctors don't seem as worried as I am.?

Try to be calm: I know it's easier said then done, but remember even stress can be difficult on a pregnancy. Just try to live healthy, minimize bad habits, and keep up regular follow up with your OB/GYN. Take heart in knowing that many people have miscarriages and later on have pregnancies without issue. If you are really worried, there are many support groups out there that you may find helpful! ...Read more

If I miscarried 2x 10+ years ago will my doctor be able to tell now? How important is it for me to tell her about it if I'm trying to conceive now?

If I miscarried 2x 10+ years ago will my doctor be able to tell now? How important is it for me to tell her about it if I'm trying to conceive now?

Disclosure: When dealing with any difficulty, it is best to be honest and complete in giving health history. This way your doctor can help you best. If you are seeing a specialist to help you conceive, I would think it is important to disclose that you had two miscarriages ten years ago. This information helps paint a clear picture of how well your uterus is able to carry an embryo. Best of luck ...Read more

What tests can I have done at the doctors to see if im infertile? Been trying for 2 and half years with no luck. Can miscarriages cause infertility

You ARE "infertile": However, "subfertile" would be a better term probably. And yes, there are a number of tests that should be done to evaluate your fertility, but you must also have your physician ask you questions and examine you to help determine the cause for not becoming pregnant. ...Read more

I am about three weeks pregnant, my doctor sent me to do a blood test to see if a miscarriage could happen. Would he know by the second test if I would?

I'm 26. Healthy. 3 miscarriages in a year all at 5-6 weeks. The doctor doesn't think anything is wrong with me. All my blood tests are normal?

Early miscarriage: Early miscarriages during the first 8 weeks of pregnancy are very common. Many are never recognized as pregnancy, and are often thought to be just a late pregnancy. Following a miscarriage, it is recommended that a woman wait 3-6 months before getting pregnant again. Given the history of 3 miscarriage within a year, I recommend waiting at least 12 months to allow your body time to recover. ...Read more

Some reassurance: The fact that you have been able to get pregnant once is reassuring. It means that mechanically, all of the parts worked to be able to form a pregnancy even though it did not end well. It is important to note that 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, meaning that the one loss could be just unfortunate bad luck. Other info is needed to comment about your specifics likes age, health, genetic hist ...Read more

Am 24 years old a year ago I had a miscarriage and I been trying for 2 years already and doctors can only do something if I have 2 miscarriages more?

Miscarriage: If you're 24 years old, you're young and it's unlikely that you're going to be someone at high risk of recurrent miscarriage. Miscarriages happen to 20% of women and so it can be a chance occurrence that won't happen again. It looks like you're having a problem with fertility though if you've been trying for 2 years and so ask about that! Are you having regular periods? Take prenatal vitamins! ...Read more

Hello doc! My period last only for 2 days, is it normal? Since I have history of miscarriage pregnancy a year ago.

Period: Sorry for your miscarriage!
Yes, having had a dramatic change in your hormones, e.g. pregnancy and then miscarriage, can lead to a new and altered "normal" cycle for you. Next visit to your OB doctor you may want to discuss it in more detail. By itself it is not necessarily abnormal. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage ut I did not go see a doctor until the bleeding stopped is there anyway I could still get my confirmation of the miscarriage?

Quantitative hCG tes: Either do the above if a blood test is available to you, it may continue to be positive for some time and then the test is repeated every 1-2 weeks until the level is less than 5. If a blood test is not available to you, you could do a urine pregnancy test, but again this may remain positive for some time after the clinical symptoms of miscarriage have resolved ...Read more

Does a large yolk sac mean a higher risk of miscarriage? Us today, only 5 weeks 4 days, doc said a little early to see hb. Said large sac could be bad

Good doctor: Sounds like you have a good doctor. I figure he/she will repeat the ultrasound in two weeks. By that time you will see a heart beat. Around 12 to 14 weeks your doctor will send you for first screening, an ultrasound and fingerprick test. This is a screening test for chromosomal abnormalities, which can be associated with an abnormally large yolk sac. ...Read more

I want to have a miscarriage and I can't see a doctor what should I do!

Best to see Dr. But: I don't know why you can't see a doctor.
Even if you are young you should be able to go to Planned Parenthood.
The safest choice is RU486 which is 95% effective within the first 50 days of pregnancy. Certain herbs can also be effective but should not be tried if more than 6 weeks since conception- see http://www. Sisterzeus. Com/Abortif. Htm
But I strongly urge you to see a doctor. ...Read more

Is it possible for baby to be hiding at 8 weeks? I feel like my doctor could possibly be wrong about missed miscarriage. Maybe I'm just in denial..

Is it possible for baby to be hiding at 8 weeks? I feel like my doctor could possibly be wrong about missed miscarriage. Maybe I'm just in denial..

Hide and seek: The baby may not be "hiding" and your MD has hopefully been "seeking" the present pregnancy through ultrasound and serial beta hCG's. If those to methods do no show pregnancy progress then a missed miscarriage is likely. ...Read more

I have recurrent miscarriages and am preparing to see a new doctor. What medical history information should I get from my family that would helpful?

Genetic: Some family information is important. You want to know about any genetic. Disorders. You would want to know about any family history of mental retardation. Also you want to know about any infertility or anyone else having recurrent miscarriages. And it is important to know at what age your mother went through menopause.

Counseling: Consider seeing a counselor to help deal with the emotional issues and to help develop coping skills. There is help available. Since your period is late consider checking a pregnancy test. If negative consider seeing an Obgyn to discuss irregular cycles. If positive the Obgyn can help guide you through pregnancy. ...Read more

I had miscarriage and d&c almost 6weeks ago. No periods yet. How long should I wait more? When shoukd I see doc abt it?

See your doc: You need to be evaluated by your physician. Everything is probably fine but you need a pregnancy test to confirm that your lack of a period is not because you have retained placental tissue in your uterus. If your pregnancy test is negative then your lack of a period is most likely because you have not resumed ovulation yet. Please use contraception until this issue has been resolved. ...Read more

Hi doc I have miscarried in July even now I haven't see my periods my quation is can I get pregnant without seeing my periods?

That's possible: That is possible because the egg comes before the true period. That means a woman ovulates and then has her true period 2 weeks later if her egg is not fertilized. Thus, she can ovulate and get fertilized, be pregnant, deliver a baby, all without seeing her period. Of course, her period will hopefully return some months after delivering her baby. ...Read more
