I thought having twins would be good and wanted ivf. But doctor said no. Why?

Increased risks: Multiple births increase risks for both mother and child because the uterus is designed really for only one baby. The more babies crowded in there, the more problems so that is why your doctor discouraged you from tampering with mother nature. She sometimes knows best. ...Read more

Ivf (Definition)

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

Did not think i had schizophrenia but dr said i had schizophrenia and would need meds for life. Is this common?

Did not think i had schizophrenia but dr said i had schizophrenia and would need meds for life. Is this common?

Sometimes: I would recommend you get in treatment with a good counselor and work with them in addition to your doctor to understand what if any diagnosis you have over time . Medications are tools (just like a shovel for digging a hole) they help is.Also excellent nutrition taking additives put of your diet and fish oil can help but meds maybe important tools over the long term. ...Read more

I have 2 girls and since the youngest I have had 5 miscarriages. Doc said nothing is wrong. Is there something i can do to help keep baby?

I have 2 girls and since the youngest I have had 5 miscarriages. Doc said nothing is wrong. Is there something i can do to help keep baby?

Hard to say: This is one situation where a visit with a fertility specialist may be worthwhile. After 5 mc's i would wonder if there is something genetic involved and a proper workup may provide you with some answers.You have obviously been successful in the past, but you or dad may have a balanced chromosome disorder that might affect some conceptions and not others. ...Read more

Don't worrry : If you are having a serious problem, go to the er. If yiu are just concerned about having a routine visit, then do not worry. You can try going to a hospital based clinic or to planned parenthood in your area for an evaluation. Your medicaid can be retroactive. Planned parenthood would be a valuable resource if there is one in your area. ...Read more

I have got endometriosis. I have been trying for baby for last three years but no luck. My doctor said that I might need IVF. I just wana know is ther?

I have got endometriosis. I have been trying for baby for last three years but no luck. My doctor said that I might need IVF. I just wana know is ther?

Try IUI first: First of all, if your husband has provided a normal sperm analysis, the MD should eradicate as much of the existing endometrial implants as possible before embarking on GnRh agonist suppression medication for up to 6 months. Secondly, IUI (Intra uterine insemination) is less expensive than IVF as long as your Fallopian tubes are open. A Fertility GYN MD can be of immense help in this venture. ...Read more

I am 2 months pregnant. My husband wants to have sex but i say no because i don't want any problem with my pregnancy. Would there be a problem if I have sex?

I am 2 months pregnant. My husband wants to have sex but i say no because i don't want any problem with my pregnancy. Would there be a problem if I have sex?

Pregnancy and sex: Having sex during a healthy pregnancy is usually fine, limited by the woman's comfort of course. In "clinical findings" it says you don't know whether you're pregnant? Have you visited your primary doctor about this yet? Do you have an OB doctor? They can examine you and confirm the pregnancy and its health. Be well, . ...Read more

I have had rpl. My doctor did testing but found nothing. I have new insurance that doesn't cover anything for infertility. What would be my next step?

I have had rpl. My doctor did testing but found nothing. I have new insurance that doesn't cover anything for infertility. What would be my next step?

Call insurance: Since infertility is defined as an inability to conceive you could argue you are not infertile (since you can conceive), many insurances will cover treatments for repeated miscarriages but do not cover infertility therapy. In our area bcbs is the only insurance that sees rpl as "infertility" rather than a separate diagnosis. So i would clarify benefits, then see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

I am taking prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) and I have know ovaries but having a period can I still have a baby i would like to have any baby is there a change

I am taking prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) and I have know ovaries but having a period can I still have a baby i would like to have any baby is there a change

It : It is still possible that you can have a baby but there is a caveat. If you are taking prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) that suggests you are older than 40 and maybe have experienced menopause. The best option is to consult a reproductive endocrinologist (fertility specialist). They will weigh factors in such as your age and hormone levels. The two best hormone levels to predict whether you are fertile are the fsh value and the amh value. A normal fsh value is between 4-8 and a menopausal level is above 25. Anything between 8 and 25 suggests decreased ovarian function. Amh is another indicator of ovarian function. If your amh value is below 1 then that suggest decreased ovarian function and that it may be more difficult to get pregnant. Depending on your test results then your fertility physician will be able to suggest a number of options as long as you have not had significant problems with your uterus.

I recently had an appointment with a Cardiologist. They gave me a holter device but I have no clue about the do's and don'ts. All they told me was not to get it wet. Is there anything else I should know?

I recently had an appointment with a Cardiologist. They gave me a holter device but I have no clue about the do's and don'ts. All they told me was not to get it wet. Is there anything else I should know?

Holter monitor: Wear it on you for the time it was prescribed for. Don't get it wet. If you have any symptoms like chest pain, palpitation or any unusual feeling chart it down in a dairy and give it to your cardiologist when you return the monitor. ...Read more

Please inform OB: You need to be up front with your OB in this matter so appropriate surveillance testing can be done during pregnancy. There is a possibility you were not sensitized during the first pregnancy but i wouldn't count on it. If testing shows the baby starting to have problems they can proceed with treatment. ...Read more

I have a male counsellor and have been looking at my childhood. things happened i have not talked about . I feel safe there but is it ok to discuss?

I have a male counsellor and have been looking at my childhood. things happened  i have not talked about . I feel safe there but is it ok to discuss?

Your choice: I find it is a waste of your time and effort when you avoid sharing the things that are troubling you.It's like having one laceration stitched but hiding another that might be in a "private"place.Either share the issue with the therapist or find one you can do this with. It is easy to just talk & act like you're working on things, but unless you do the hard work,you won't make the gains you need. ...Read more

I've had abnormal periods every since I can remember, a doctor suggested I had pcos without actually testing, but I've had an ultrasound since then and nothing, why do I have trouble conceiving?  I would go to the doctor but I don't have the means, or ins

The two: have some connection (since ovulation is variable in your case planning conception is difficult), HOWEVER once other physical reasons for infertility are removed there are ways of detecting ovulation (measure body Temp) and also ways of "regulating" your menses!! Since you cannot obtain fertililty advice due to financial reasons perhaps this is not the time to have a child??? Just sayin... ...Read more

No period for 8months went to doc did a transvaginal ultrasound results normal. They said I had eggs is there any chance I could get preg really fast?

No period for 8months went to doc did a transvaginal ultrasound results normal. They said I had eggs is there any chance I could get preg really fast?

Yes and no: Not having a period for 8 months isn't normal at age 21. I would worry that you have undiagnosed PCOS. Having said that, it's possible that you can get pregnant at any time, given that your cycle isn't regular, you might release an egg before you have a period. Anovulation is one of the hallmarks of PCOS, excess or unwanted hair is another. Have doc test your thyroid, and prolactin as well. ...Read more

Pseudoephedrine: Pseudoephedrine works by constricting blood vessels. There are reports of birth defects possibly associated with its use in the 1st trimester, but is generally considered acceptable later in pregnancy if taken in moderation for short periods of time. The concern of reducing blood flow to the placenta is a valid one, so it, and any medication, should be considered carefully during pregnancy. ...Read more
