If i can not have kids, and i get someone to carry. Would i have to be asleep/sedated for my eggs to be removed or could i just get my cervix frozen?

If i can not have kids, and i get someone to carry. Would i have to be asleep/sedated for my eggs to be removed or could i just get my cervix frozen?

Sedation: Egg retrieval (aspiration of oocytes) is nearly always done in the US with a conscious sedation, II believe this is mostly true worldwide. Earlier studies with regional blocks like epidural/spinal have not yielded as good results. ...Read more

Genetic (Definition)

From a medical standpoint, "genetic" refers to the potential heritability of various medical conditions. While some conditions are inevitable (at some point in one's life) as a consequence of simple genetic heritability (eg huntington's disease), a large number of medical conditions (including all behaviorial health disorders) are the expressed final pathway of a ...Read more

I have high risk HPV. Im scared I could have passed it on to my baby when I gave birth to her and it would be left undiagnosed as it is symptom free. ?

I have high risk HPV. Im scared I could have passed it on to my baby when I gave birth to her and it would be left undiagnosed as it is symptom free. ?

Relax: We do see occasional cases where the wart strains are transferred to baby if they are delivered while you have warts. They can show up around the genitals up to 2 years later or may be seen as vocal cord warts in the same time frame. We do not have any indication they are affected by the high risk strains. That appears to be limited to older patients.I'd quit loosing sleep over it. ...Read more

I have a clubbed thumb, I would feel bad if I pass this syndrome on to my children. Would it be possible to filter out the defect?

I have a clubbed thumb, I would feel bad if I pass this syndrome on to my children. Would it be possible to filter out the defect?

Not possible: It is my understanding that clubbed thumb is caused by a recessive gene that may have been passed down hidden for generations until matched by the genes of the other parent, to now manifest. It is not possible at this time to alter the genes in one's eggs or sperm and this gene will be passed on but has less than 25% chance of showing in your children, even if their other parent is a carrier. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I have hiv/aids will my child be born with it too ?

Can you tell me if I have hiv/aids will my child be born with it too ?

Treatment: One of the best successes in HIV treatment has been the reduction of maternal transmission to her fetus/newborn.If started and continued throughout the pregnancy, mom's viral load is minimized and transmission to baby can be cut down to 5% or less. C-section delivery is often chosen to avoid babies exposure to maternal blood. ...Read more

If I was cut,tied,and burned can it be reversed so I can have another baby and is it possible to become pregnant ?

If I was cut,tied,and burned can it be reversed so I can have another baby and is it possible to become pregnant ?

Possibly: the more damage to the tubes, the less tube there is to put back together. You might have a good reversal, you'd need to be evaluated before to know. If you aren't a good candidate for reversal, many women end up using IVF to conceive. ...Read more

Hi, I'm a 24yr old female and for the past 3months I haven't been able to pass a bowel. I know I'm not constipated because if I stick my finger up there I can make it come out but it will always be gastric dioreah. Please help!

Constipation: Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/constipation/basics/definition/con-20032773 where you appear to meet definition of constipation. It also sounds like you're disimpacting yourself (manually removing stool). In elderly, one of many causes of diarrhea is impaction/constipation whereby liquid stool leaks around blocked stool. So go see your GP for evaluation. Perhaps hypothyroid ...Read more

It : It depends on what you had and what kind of chemotherapy you were treated with. Most women treated for leukemia as children go on to have normal fertility meaning that they can have their own children. For lymphoma, there is a higher risk of infertility, but it does not affect everyone. Your best bet to know for sure is to call the oncologist who treated you. They will know what kind of cancer and treatment you had and will give you the most accurate assessment as to whether you can have kids. Odds are, you can. ...Read more

If a 2 yr old boy's testicles have not come down yet will it cause him to be sterile and when should he have surgery?

What causes you to have an attached kidney when no one else has it in my family? Will my children have it to if husband don't have it but i do?

What causes you to have an attached kidney when no one else has it in my family? Will my children have it to if husband  don't have it but i  do?

Confusing label : I have never heard or read of an attached kidney.They are sometimes fused & may be called "horseshoe"kidneys. Kidney defects arise in ~ 1/500 of the general population & are found in ~1/50 in close relatives of those found with a defect& often go undetected. The process is multifactorial & direct risk is probably about 5%. This is something pre or postnatal ultrasounds would easily detect. ...Read more

I just had an episiotomy with my 1st child will it be likely that they will have to cut me again?

I just had an episiotomy with my 1st child will it be likely that they will have to cut me again?

Episiotomy: Whether or not you have an episiotomy in subsequent deliveries is dependent on many thing: the size of the current baby, the control or lack thereof that you have at the delivery, the speed at which the baby needs to be delivered, should there be a problem. Speak to your doctor about your concerns and together form a plan on how to proceed. ...Read more

Unlikely: It will be very unlikely to have swallowing difficulty due to thyroid enlargement unless it's significant. Check with your doctor first to see if thyroid testing is warranted. ...Read more
