Good luck. ...Read more

Think calm positive thoughts about your future conception possibilities. ...Read more

Need an indication: Since most uterine fibroids are benign and are often asymptomatic, there may be no indication for seeking treatment or looking for "option to save your uterus". If you are in pain or are very concerned, consult a knowledgeable Gyn and an experienced laparoscopic surgeon regarding the risks/benefits of medical treatments versus those of a simple myomectomy or a fibroid electrocoagulation. ...Read more
Wife 20 weeks pregnant, severe cervix infection, no bleeding, never saw ob/gyn, emergency room, gave her antibiotics in butt & pills, will baby be ok?
Gf 10 weeks late. No physical contact. Clothes on. She just swallowed sperm. Neg EPT and stds. 4 MDs said sperm can reach uterus by blood orally! WHAT?

If her menstrual period is late it may be from numerous other causes, but if she is pregnant and you did not have vaginal intercourse or somehow deposit semen on her genitalia then she is not telling you something. Get a home urine test kit and check her first voided AM urine. This is not a result of oral sex. ...Read more

A positive CMV IgG means you had the germ at some point & it should not bother future pregnancies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long would it take for an air embolism produced by blowing into a pregnant woman's vagina to severely harm her?
Define baby: I believe one legislature just failed to pass a law stating life begins at conception, an interesting idea but one fraught with problems. The blighted ovum is one example of why legislatures need to stay out of this issue. Here a sperm fertilized an egg with just enough information to start the process, but not enough to complete the job. Study of the shed debris often shows chromosome defects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
