Is there a confidential site for miscarriage support?

Is there a confidential site for miscarriage support?

Don't bother: It is my experience that people do more harm than good if there is a significant problem. They're sure they can fix on their own, simply because they're numerous 'answers' out there. Feeling of privacy & staying in control + the extremely unfortunate status of health care that has led to physician's very often not listening to patients, replacing time with tests. Use web as resource of where to go. ...Read more

My blood Group is AB- and my wife blood group is B+ and we married 3 years my wife pregnant twice but miscarriage after 3 months is bld group problem ?

No- it's not: The blood groups are important to preventing an immune reaction that affects the blood of the second child. Your blood group types are not the cause of the miscarriages. there must be some other cause. Sometimes we don't find all the causes. A fertility specialist may be of some help. ...Read more

Hi i have second miscarriage 2 weeks later i dont know why i have miscarry but i have B- blood group n my husband is O+ dos this effect my pregnancy ?

Hi i have second miscarriage 2 weeks later i dont know why i have miscarry but i have B- blood group n my husband is O+ dos this effect my pregnancy  ?

Rh problem: The O and the B blood types have no impact, but husband's being Rh + and you Rh - puts you at risk of developing antibodies to Rh factor, with hazard to subsequent pregnancies. Your obstetrician surely know this (better than I!) and will likely recommend an injection at the time of childbirth (RhoGam) to reduce the risk. If you already have anti Rh antibodies, the management is more difficult. ?? ...Read more

Rhogam in 1st P.G.?: Hopefully your wife got an injection of Rhogam at the first pregnancy/miscarriage to prevent any possible o+ red cells from interfering with pregnancy #2. Confirm this with her md who is providing her present OB care. ...Read more

Why can't you have an orgasm after a miscarriage?

Why can't you have an orgasm after a miscarriage?

No reason: You should be able to have an orgasm after miscarriage the same as you did before. If your orgasms have changed then it may be a sign of depression over the loss. Having intercourse may remind you subconsciously of the miscarriage. If this continues you may want to seek the help of a professional therapist. ...Read more

I can't seem to get over my miscarriage. What do you recommend?

Maybe a therapist: I don't know how long it has been, or if you have tried seeing a counselor, but it may be a helpful step. It definitely takes a lot of time to heal after experiencing a loss. Sometimes a counselor can help you through the grieving process. There are specialists who deal specifically with miscarriage, who have expertise in this area. ...Read more

Help please! i don't know when would i ovulate after having a miscarriage a week ago?

Help please! i don't know when would i ovulate after having a miscarriage a week ago?

3 + weeks: After a miscarriage a woman may ovulate and thus conceive as early as in 3 weeks time. She may not have a menstrual period before conceiving. The pregnancy test can be positive for up to weeks after a miscarriage. It can therefore become difficult to discern, if, in the absence of a menstrual period, a positive urine pregnancy test is caused by the previous or a new pregnancy. ...Read more

Could my miscarriage have been caused because i didn't wear the lead protection from during an x-ray?

Could my miscarriage have been caused because i didn't wear the lead protection from during an x-ray?

Probably not: The new baby created in you is unlikely to miscarry just due to radiation from a simple xray like a chest xray. Even higher dosings of radiation like a ct scan, probably wouldn't cause a miscarriage. ...Read more

Am 11 weeks preg. I still toss and turn at night with force. That can't cause miscarriage, can it? Worried since baby would be bigger now.

Am 11 weeks preg. I still toss and turn at night with force. That can't cause miscarriage, can it? Worried since baby would be bigger now.

Fetus is safe: Your fetus is well protected inside your uterus by chorioamniotic membranes, amniotic fluid, the muscular wall of your uterus, your abdominal muscles, tissues and skin. Therefore "tossing and turning at night with force" will not cause a miscarriage or harm your fetus now or later. ...Read more
