Told by nurse after ttc for 3 yrs that I needed to wait 6 months after loss of 1st pregnancy To try again, is there a medical reason to wait so long?

Simply, no: Simple answer: no, there is no generic medical reason to wait 6 months. There may be reasons to wait, but that is not any medical standard of care. Many things to consider to answer this question: feel free to ask specifics, or certainly talking with your doctor about pros/cons would be a good idea. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is there any benefits to still be breast feeding my 18month old? I need to wean before the summer due to medical reasons!

Is there any benefits to still be breast feeding my 18month old? I need to wean before the summer due to medical reasons!

Not specifically: The immune & dietary benefits of breast feeding begin to wain after the introduction of baby foods & little data supports i's superiority after 9 mo. The child also gains nurturing benefits from the process & some are more needy than others. Eventually the neediness has to be addressed in other ways as the kid moves to more mature behavior. Stop when you can but be aware of the nurturing need. ...Read more

Isn't it to soon to get another ultrasound after only 1 month for complex cysts, will anything change? is there any other tests?

Isn't it to soon to get another ultrasound after only 1 month for complex cysts, will anything change? is there any other tests?

Complex cyst: If the cyst is most likely a hemorragic cyst, these are functional cysts that result from an ovarian follicle enlarging and not rupturing to release the egg as it normally would. They typically resolve in a matter of days to weeks so there is a good chance it will be gone in a month. Sometimes the follow up is 6 or 8 weeks, but 4 weeks not unusual. ...Read more

Pregnancy after how many months of taking MMR vaccine is safe? Is it 1 month or 3 months? Various medical websites gives different answers. What is the actual period till which pregnancy needs to be avoided? Is it 3 months or 1 month?

I : I see what you mean! the recommendations according to the center for disease control (cdc) and the american college of obstetrics and gynecology (acog) are to wait 1 month after vaccination with the MMR to become pregnant. The recommendation from the american academy of pediatrics (aap) and merck, the vaccine manufacturer is to wait 3 months. All 4 are excellent sources of reliable information. My recommendation is to play it safe and wait the 3 months after vaccination to become pregnant or ask the opinion of your ob/gyn. Good luck! ...Read more

Would there be any reason for the baby to move more frequently after receiving the anti-d injection?

Would there be any reason for the baby to move more frequently after receiving the anti-d injection?

No: There is no reason why the baby should move more after you receive your anti-d injection. This injection, also commonly known by its brand name of rhogam, is usually given around 28 weeks, when the sensation of fetal movement tends to be very strong; it may therefore be a coincidence. ...Read more

Is there any added complications or risks having a 2nd abortion 6 wks after a 1st abortion and is there any effects to fertility or future pregnancy?

Is there any added complications or risks having a 2nd abortion 6 wks after a 1st abortion and is there any effects to fertility or future pregnancy?

Yes: Every time you traumatize the uterus (presume she was not taking the after pill to abort) , you have induced some injury and possibly scarring. Having 2 abortions within 6 weeks should prompt one to take precautions (BCP or condom). Nonetheless if your partner can get pregnant within 6 weeks after an abortion, it is unlikely that a couple of D/C would slow down her fertility. ...Read more
