I was taking Zoloft (sertraline) when i had 3 miscarriages could this have been the cause? All tests were fine.

Yes, it is possible.: According to a study published in a canadian study of more than 5, 000 women, there was an association between taking antidepressants, particularly the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) such as paxil, (paroxetine) prozac, and zoloft, and an increased risk for miscarriage. But researchers caution that this association does not imply a cause-and-effect relationship. ...Read more

I don't have insurance but I think I might be miscarrying. What should I do?

I don't have insurance but I think I might be miscarrying. What should I do?

Miscarriage: There is no specific treatment for miscarriage. Some bleeding during early pregnancy is common. If it is persistent, it may result in miscarriage and there is nothing that doctors can do to prevent it. Thus, while i realize that you are probably very anxious, the best thing is to just wait and see what happens. If the bleeding persists, you will know it is a miscarriage with a blood test (hcg). ...Read more

6 weeks after my miscarriage and still haven't had a period why?

6 weeks after my miscarriage and still haven't had a period why?

Hormones: I tell women it can take 6 to 8 weeks to have a cycle that's normal following a miscarriage. Sometimes the lining has to build all the way back up again, in order to have something to bleed from. At this point i wouldn't worry. Likely time will give you your answer. If after another 2 to 3 weeks you still haven't had a cycle consider consulting your gynecologist. ...Read more

I want to have a miscarriage and I can't see a doctor what should I do!

I want to have a miscarriage and I can't see a doctor what should I do!

Best to see Dr. but: I don't know why you can't see a doctor. Even if you are young you should be able to go to Planned Parenthood. The safest choice is RU486 which is 95% effective within the first 50 days of pregnancy. Certain herbs can also be effective but should not be tried if more than 6 weeks since conception- see http://www.sisterzeus.com/Abortif.htm But I strongly urge you to see a doctor. ...Read more

I've had 3 abortions and 1 miscarriage and now i can't get pregnant why can't i get pregnant?

I've had 3 abortions and 1 miscarriage  and now i can't get pregnant why can't i get pregnant?

Need evaluation: This is impossible for any doctor here to answer without much more information. When you say you can't get pregnant, how long have you been trying? It takes an average of 6 months ; is not of concern unless you have been trying for a year. If that is the case you should see a good ob/gyn doc to have a thorough evaluation to determine why; but with a history of 4 pregnancies you have good odds. ...Read more

My second sonogram showed the baby didn't grow much after 2 weeks...could it be a miscarriage? ?

My second sonogram showed the baby didn't grow much after 2 weeks...could it be a miscarriage? ?

Not sure: 2 weeks is a short time and may not show much do to variability in the way measurements are taken. Before anything can be said about the pregnancy, I suggest you get a follow up sono. Caveat, if the heart is beating normally, a miscarriage is not likely. ...Read more
