Can the doctor induce me for an irritable uterus at 37 weeks?

No: Really should not. At 37 weeks the baby's lungs may not be mature. If you have true labor then we would not stop it. But if you have irritability then better to let natural labor occur. ...Read more

Can Irritable uterus make me have pre mature labor? I'm 32 weeks pregnant

Can Irritable uterus make me have pre mature labor? I'm 32 weeks pregnant

No: An irritable uterus is one that can be contracting, but is not the same as preterm labor. Preterm labor means the cervix is opening and that is threatening for you and the baby. Preterm contractions are when the uterus contracts but the cervix doesn't open. It can be VERY hard to distinguish the 2 from patient perspective (I had them same in my pregnancy). See doctor or L&D! if worried though! ...Read more

Close monitoring: An emergency cerclage is an extremely high risk procedure. Very close monitoring by your doctor is warranted. Please clarify the plan of care with your Obgyn as to how you should proceed. Often these cases are managed with bedrest at home or in the hospital. Serial sonographic cervical lengths are done. Sometimes medications are used to calm the uterus. ...Read more

What is an irritable uterus and how its contractions are different from Braxton Hicks contractions? Can either efface or dilate my cervix? I'm 33w5d.

What is an irritable uterus and how its contractions are different from Braxton Hicks contractions? Can either efface or dilate my cervix? I'm 33w5d.

Same contractions: Braxton Hicks contractions indicate the level of sensitivity(irritability) of the uterus to the agent(oxytocin) that can cause labor. The difference is the frequency, intervals, and duration of the contractions that will eventually be progressive enough to produce changes in the cervix-AKA active labor. ...Read more

30 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby. Loose stools for 2 weeks and feel like I need to go all the time. Also have irritable uterus should I be concerned?

30 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby. Loose stools for 2 weeks and feel like I need to go all the time. Also have irritable uterus should I be concerned?

Taking care w/ baby: Given that you have a baby-on-board, I would be proactive about getting you treated. You should go to the doc and get a diagnosis for the diarrheal illness. With some history, exam and lab tests, there should be some 'road map' to follow. Pregnancy causes your immune system to weaken, and you don't want things to get out of hand. I hope you can get seen TODAY. Take care. ...Read more

Small pieces of mucus plug lost, diarrhea, increased intensity of contractions (diagnosed w irritable uterus), 35 weeks. early signs of labor?

5 more weeks: it is not uncommon for attraction to begin starting at 32 weeks and they may not be a true sign of labor, rather the might just be practice contractions or whatare called Braxton Hicks contractions. Just because you lose some mucus, does not mean you will go into labor because your cervix will keep on creating mucus. call the hospital though, for regular painful contractions or loss of fluid. ...Read more

HOW CLOMID (clomiphene) CAN AFFECT WHEN USING IT FOR OVULATION INDUCTION THE UTERUS LINING?

HOW CLOMID (clomiphene) CAN AFFECT WHEN USING IT FOR OVULATION INDUCTION THE UTERUS LINING?

Estrogen blocker: Clomid (clomiphene) acts by blocking estrogen receptors. These receptors are present in many parts of the body, including the brain & the lining of the uterus (endometrium). Without estrogen, the endometrium thins out. It doen't affect the other layers of the uterus, so your uterus won't "burst open."

I am between 5- 6 weeks pregnant. Had u/s no baby. Hgc 2400. Said my uterus is not thick. Is this normal?

Not normal : If the HCG is 2400 and they dont see anything in your uterus you need to see your doctor. It's possible you are having a miscarriage. It's also possible you have an ectopic pregnancy. That's when the pregnancy is not in the uterus where it is supposed to be. Your doc will do blood tests and help figure out what is going on. If you have bad pain or cramping go to the hospital. ...Read more

The endometrium measured 1.7cm in thickness. Age 39. Period 16-20 March 2015. Also anteverted uterus measuring 9.7X8.8X7.8 cm seen. Bad?

Enlarged uterus: From what she described her uterus is mildly enlarged. The endometrium measuring 1.7 cm is not unusual at this point in her cycle. Technically you should be somewhere midcycle and the endometrium will be thickening in this phase. As long as they were not able to see a polyp within the endometrial cavity or a fibroid tumor which is benign, then I would proceed conservatively. ...Read more

No need to change: If your physician has cleared you for moderate physical activity, you should be fine. Your bicornuate uterus should not place you at increased risk of pregnancy loss in your first trimester, but be sure to notify your physician if you note any changes. ...Read more
