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

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  ?

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

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
