Hello, I had done tiffa scan on Oct 1 4 impressions result was missed abortion as I am not satisfied vit the report can I get it done next day Pl sig.

I don't know: I'm not sure what determines that in India. Tiffa scans are known as Ultrasounds in the states and are very safe in pregnancy or at any time since there is no radiation exposure. The question here would be insurance coverage or patient's willingness to pay and the doctor's willingness to order it. Another alternative would be quantitative HCG levels 2 or 3 days apart. With a missed abortion they fall ...Read more

My wife (rh -ve), had missed abortion & kurittine in dec'12. But not sure that anti d injection was given. V r trying for conception. What to do now?

Request records: Try and request your hospital records to see if Rhogam was given or not and notify your doctor of the results. Rh antibodies will not affect your ability to become pregnant but they could potentially affect the pregnancy itself. When you become pregnant, an antibody screen will be one of the first labs that is drawn to see if any antibodies have formed. ...Read more

How much pain will 600mg of cyototec for a missed abortion at 6 weeks now 7 weeks past cause? I'm scared. Prescription of Vicodin be enough for pain?

Call the prescriber: Whoever prescribed the cyototec is responsible for being available to address your concerns. I'm not familiar with it so it is a "specialized" concern. That being said, I would predict other etiologies for your ongoing pain. With your history I would consider elements of Post Truman's Stress Disorder adding to your discomfort. ...Read more

I had a missed abortion at13 weeks got a d&c right after. Its been 8 weeks and haven't got my period, only clearish light pinkish brownish light flow.

Takes a while: After a stress like that to your body, it can take a few menstrual cycles to get into a proper routine. If you don't feel like your are having a normal menstrual cycle in the next month, go to your OB and discuss in detail. I suspect your menstrual flow will improve with each successive month. You can check on ovulation mid-cycle with an ovulation kit, if you are in TTC mode ...Read more
