Pregnancy Incidental Contact
Are there any documented cases of pregnancy through incidental/nonsexual contact with semen (I.e. touching money, doorknobs, other common items)?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Ectopic pregnancy history.I'm 4-5 weeks pregnant but abdominal ultrasound did not see anything in uterus.To repeat scan in 14days.Is this normal?
Hcg betas 48 hrs apart: 1=51 2=60 3=130. Doc says either ectopic or viable pregnancy. Is there any chance this pregnancy will result in a live birth?
What is the progeste: Progesterone level, cause a prog under 10 is worrisome, under 5 is really bad and over 20 is great u need another beta and prog level to see if the beat doubles , if the beat keeps doubling then when it reaches about 2000 u should be able to see a sac( too early for ht beat in the uterus) but I am sure your OB has already explained all of this to u, if u have an sharp pain then u need immediate. ...Read more

Pelvic u/s done 2 months postpartum (vaginal birth) says "no significant free fluid in pelvis". Is this normal? Shouldn't there be 'none"?
Pelvic Fluid: There is always a small amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity. Fluid leaks from your blood vessels, your intestines and other areas and is absorbed by other systems within your body to keep things moving. It is totally normal. When there is a large amount of fluid, that becomes abnormal and we need to find the cause of the fluid. ...Read more
Dry humping w/ underwear. No penetration & direct contact possible precum day before ovulation. Possible pregnancy?2 negative pts. Pms signs.Stressed
Lmp 2/24/13. +serum pregnant 4/1/13.Spotting started 4/10/13 with hCG 215. Us showed no fetus, small sac. 4/12 hCG 310. Could this be a viable pregnancy?
Early pregnancy: The timing is right for a 5 week pregnancy but the HCG is much lower than may be normal. If you are not having any spotting, pain or bleeding, then repeating the ultrasound in 1 - 2 weeks will let you know definitively what is going on. Still, if any of the other symptoms occur, you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Is this normal pregnancy or miscarriage?
single intrauterine gestational sac seen measuring 2.2 cms,corresponding to 6+ weeks
Positive test hcglevel 950 LMP may 6 previous ectopic.transvaginal ultrasound today said they don't see anything in uterus is it early or another possible ectopic?
Too early to know: With an LMP 5/6, you would be about 5+weeks by dates. The HCG is only 950 and too low to see a sac yet in the uterus. Generally we can see something on a vaginal scan by 6 weeks or an HCG higher than 1500. You need a followup HCG done to ensure it is rising normally, then another ultrasound the make sure there is a sac in the uterus. Please see your gynecologist ASAP. ...Read more
Gestational sac: Between 4 and 5 weeks the gestational sac should become visible, followed by the yolk sac by mid 5th week, and fetal pole by 6th week. ...Read more
Depends: If your dates are absolutely correct, and you have not had any irregular bleeding, and you have had regular periods in the past, then at 7 weeks gestation, an ultrasound would reveal pregnancy signs. So if the ultrasound was negative for any intrauterine or extrauterine pregnancy, usually, this is corroborated with quantitative beta hCG levels. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is zika still a
Concern at 24/25 weeks pregnant? The studies are confusing - are most of the severe birth defects seen with 1st trimester transmission
Confusing=yes: Zika like many viruses can infect a fetus at any point and the outcome is hard to define at this point. It seems to attack/damage the developing nerves within the brain more in their earliest stages. Such damage lessens brain growth and leads to the small head. Most older kids and adults have few if any symptoms when infected. When the nerves are safe or resistant to damage is not clear. ...Read more
With a normal pregnancy, all ultrasounds including ones in the 1st trimester showed LMP 10/15/12. Could conception have occurred after 11/7/12?
Pregnancy sono: If the ultrasounds were done in the first trimester and all confirm the 10/15/12 lmp, then there is little chance that conception occurred after 11/7/12. The first trimester ultrasound is usually sensitive to +/- 3 days. ...Read more

Why would polyps on cervix cause spotting during pregnancy if untouched by intercourse or anything else?
Very friable: Emdocervical polyps bleed easily in pregnancy simply from the engorgement (swelling) that occurs with pregnancy. The polyp wall is thin, erodes easily, and can bleed spontaneously especially if extruding from the cervix. Better to deal with it after delivery unless it causes problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
