I always crave eating oranges and have just been told that too much can cause a miscarriage. How so?
I did have a miscarriage its 5 days now and now I'm having brown blood does it mean all what I had inside is gone?
No: Brown blood is caused by blood that has remained inside the uterus of vagina a bit longer and has started to break down. This occurs as bleeding rate slows down and does not necessarily indicate that you have passed all the products of conception. Depending on how far along your pregnancy was, you may see bits of tissue from the fetus. You should follow up with your gyn md for an exam to be sure. ...Read more
I miscarried on 6/16 2014. I went to the dr. On 7/30- negative blood test. 8/7 negative home test. 8/16 & 8/17 positive test. How far I could I be?
Hard to be accurate: A pregnancy test will usually turn positive somewhere around 4 weeks (2 weeks after conception). So you probably weren't 4 weeks on 8/7, but became 4 weeks sometime between 8/7 and 8/16. So you're likely around 4-5 weeks. An ultrasound at 6+ weeks will give you a better idea. ...Read more

I miscarried 6wk ago. Had a light peroid that lasted 11days & ended a wk. Ago. The last 2 mornings after sex I have had pinkish blood when I wipe...?
A few ideas: Sometimes when women have this is a vestige, leftover, bleeding from the period. Other times it can be due to bleeding from the cervix. So long as your pap is up to date and normal, then likely coming from uterus. Not much to worry about at this time, as you're not likely pregnant again so soon especially given you had an 11 day period. You can always check a test as wouldn't hurt. ...Read more
