What is the risk of miscarriage after the heartbeat is seen on a 6 week ultrasound?

10-20%.: After your physician can identify limb buds and movements of the embryo your risk will decrease to less than 10%. It will be decreased even further (<1-5%) if your embryo grows well at the end of the first trimester (14 weeks). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

Fertility evaluation: If you have been trying to get pregnancy for more than 12 moths without success then it is time to see a doctor for a fertility evaluation.

What could be the reasons for 3 miscarriages in a row? Miscarriages 10/2013, 11/2013 and 01/2014. I've had 3 heathy pregnancies previously.

What could be the reasons for 3 miscarriages in a row? Miscarriages 10/2013, 11/2013 and 01/2014. I've had 3 heathy pregnancies previously.

Chromosomal: The most common reason for any miscarriage is a chromosomal problem. Assuming this is the same father. It's unlikely that you have a problem that has gone 'undetected' in your 3 prior normal pregnancies. But 3 miscarriages in a row is traumatic and emotionally painful. You and your husband/partner may want to see doctor just to get checked out. I'm so sorry for your losses. ...Read more

Lots of reasons: There are several possible reasons for pregnancy loss, from sperm problems that may not have existed before to older eggs to fibroid tumors that may be inside the uterus (and weren't there in the past). See a qualified fertility specialist who can test you and your partner and get to the bottom of your losses. ...Read more

Well: The pregnancy likely stopped evolving at 5-6 weeks though you were 11 weeks pregnant, these usually pass on their own, Misoprostol at 800 mcg vaginally can speed things up but at 5-6 weeks it doesn't always come at once leading to heavy bleeding and a d@c. Don't worry, ask about misoprostol, look it up, and get some pain medication to expedite. Sorry for your bad news. ...Read more

High ptt: There are many causes of miscarriage. A high ptt is something that should be investigated among other things for general health, not only miscarriage. The reasons for high PTT can be autoimmune disease, liver disease, including hepatitis or other liver infection or infestation. This is something that should be looked at by your doctor or a hematologist. ...Read more

Am 11 weeks preg. I still toss and turn at night with force. That can't cause miscarriage, can it? Worried since baby would be bigger now.

Am 11 weeks preg. I still toss and turn at night with force. That can't cause miscarriage, can it? Worried since baby would be bigger now.

Fetus is safe: Your fetus is well protected inside your uterus by chorioamniotic membranes, amniotic fluid, the muscular wall of your uterus, your abdominal muscles, tissues and skin. Therefore "tossing and turning at night with force" will not cause a miscarriage or harm your fetus now or later. ...Read more

My dr said I was having a miscarriage because my hCG was 1157 at first on 11/29/11 than it went down to 501 on 12/1/12 than 959 in 12/4/12. Am I ok?

Follow HCG to Zero: I would agree that this is unlikely to be a viable pregnancy. However, Its unusual that it would drop from 1157 to 501 and then rise to 959. Usually it just keeps dropping. It would be prudent to keep testing until the level drops to zero. If it doesn't, you need further testing. Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (molar pregnancy) is a rare complication of a miscarriage that is possible. ...Read more

How do I know if I miscarried or not?

You may not know: You can know you have miscarried if you pass and can recognize pregnancy tissue, or if you have a positive pregnancy test that becomes negative after heavy bleeding.
