Consequences: Diabetes can have adverse health consequences on both the mother and the fetus.

I am experiencing pain upon insertion & post coital bleeding. I went to the ob & all the tests were negative.Its still happening, what should I do?
Endometrial polyps: If there is pain on insertion, then use more lubricant, and try to relax your pelvic muscles (reverse kegel maneuver) to prevent pain and actual trauma to the vaginal skin during intercourse. If the local OB doctor can't find a cause for your bleeding, then hysteroscopy may be something that you may want to have, to look for endometrial polyps. ...Read more

Was embryo seen?: Life can be hard for couples who are trying to conceive (ttc) and having negative pregnancy tests month after month. Also difficult are recurrent miscarriages when embryos don't develop. If a physician has confirmed a pregnancy and two or more consecutive ones are 'lost", it is reasonable to ask about a referral to a fertility subspecialist. I will share this question with some on this site. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you tell me how to find a ob doc that would do a has anyone lost there baby with amniocentesis test 4 DNA reasons?
Amniocentesis Safety: Rate of loss from amniocentesis is often quoted anywhere between 1/300 to 1/500 and often it has to do with the reason why the amniocentesis is done...If there's suspicion for infection or a genetic problem...The fetus may already be predisposed to stillbirth which could be wrongfully blamed on the amniocentesis. More likely to get fluid leakage with amniocentesis (1%) than fetal loss. ...Read more

It typically causes severe itching all over the body without a rash. Serum bile acid levels are elvated which is the reason why your doctor is checking this. This condition is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. ...Read more

First herpes OB 3 weeks ago. 2 swab tests (BD) both came back pos. for HSV1 and neg. for HSV2. But OB is so persistent it possible this is HSV2?
You have HSV1: You can be sure it's HSV1; a lab would not confuse with HSV2 on swab testing. There is no difference in severity or duration of symptoms for HSV1 vs HSV2. I hope you have been taking an anti-herpes drug like aciclovir or valaciclovir, but HSV1 sometimes needs higher doses than HSV2. With proper treatment, symptoms should have cleared much sooner than 3 weeks. Discuss with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
Had a culture done genitally came back hsv1. Did blood test I have both 1 and 2. Will I have ob of 2 as well as 1 now? Or will it always be just 1?
28wks pregnant. Ob ordered sleep study. I haven't gotten results but sleep dr is ordering a multiple sleep latency test. Why? Cant i be just tired?
My ob referred me for a blood test to test if i'm ovulating or not. Im quite doubtful on this. Is it possible through bloodtest instead of opt kits?
First herpes OB. Has 2 swab tests, both positive for hsv1 negative for hsv2. I heard swab tests can be inaccurate. Is it possible I have hsv2 as well?
Unlikely: I wonder what exactly was the type of test used? If it was a PCR test, then I would trust those results. Besides, you had it done twice which has shown the same result in each case. It would be rare anyway to have transmission of HSV-1 and HSV-2 all from one incident. In fact, having one of the herpes viruses may partially protect against getting the other one. So I think you only acquired HSV-1. ...Read more
After 3 consecutive missed miscarriages ob/gyn won't do any tests. I have had other children but don't agree with his 'bad luck' diagnosis.
Re-evaluate: I think most doctors would consider a work-up after 3 consecutive miscarriages, even if you have had children previously. Something may have changed with your body. You want to make sure that there is nothing that needs to be done differently before attempting to get pregnant again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
