Does fasting glucose reading of 104 is too high? Need to take medicine? Had miscarriage 3 weeks before. Please advise.
Borderline: A normal fasting blood sugar (FBS) in a non pregnant woman is less than 100. Since the hormonal changes of pregnancy may have affected the fasting blood sugar, would suggest repeating the test in about 6 weeks. Maintaining a normal weight is the first line in getting the FBS below 100. ...Read more

Are their any over the counter medicines that cause miscarriage. Does taking Ibuprofen during the first few weeks cause miscarriage?
33% of preg misc in:
1st trimester normally. To tease out just what causes them is a process of statistical inference! There is no data implying that ibuprofen causes miscarriage. In general, if you don't feel that you have to take a medicine then don't. Every action you take has its risks and its benefits. We believe that the risks to a pregnancy of taking ibuprofen are minimal and that it is safe to take.

Yes,: A pregnant shouldn't as a general rule take no medication, illicit or not during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. One glass of wine with dinner not a problem.

If your planning travelling to an endemic malaria part of the world---fagetaboutit, seriously! ...Read more

What can cause a miscarriage? The person I had intercourse with did drugs. .. Can that be the reason why? Or...Help please.
Genetic mutations: Most of the time miscarriages are caused by genetic mutations incompatible with life and are no one's fault. That being said, if you are trying for pregnancy, visit your family dr or OB-Gyn and start prenatal vitamins. Stop smoking, no drugs unless check with dr, no hot tubs or hot baths, no alcohol. Of course, it would be good if the father of your child didn't use illegal drugs. Chose carefully. ...Read more

Pregnant for one month. Had one early miscarriage before. Afraid a lot. Took rest and medicine. How long I have any further risk of miscarriage?
A couple of months: You are correct that the risk of miscarriage is much greater early in pregnancy. Remember that by the time you miss your period, you are already at week 4 of the 40 week pregnancy. At that time the estimate of miscarriage is about 25 to 30%. But a mere 4 weeks later, at week 8, the estimates are that miscarriage is down to 2-3% likelihood. Then is stays low. Good luck! ...Read more

Big life decisions: Are you happy when you are lied to? Do keep that in mind if you lie to your doctor or to other people.

Last year, I had a miscarriage due to thyroid & diabetes. After taking medicine, it was control but this month, it is 9.14.How can I control to conceive?
Go see a doctor: Go find a good endocrinologist or diabetologist. You need to get your diabetes under control to ensure a healthy pregnancy. You should probably go on Insulin therapy. Since that is the safe treatment option during pregnancy. During pregnancy your AM fingersticks should be <95 and your fingersticks one hour after a meal should be <130. That is very tight control & will probably require Insulin ...Read more
