Risks Of Exposure To Croup During Pregnancy
Parvo and pregnant: Fortunately, about half of pregnant exposed to Parvovirus B19 are already immune, and there are no ill consequences to mother or baby. Risk of miscarriage and fetal anemia occurs in less than 5%, usually in the first few months of gestation. There is no treatment, but your OB may want to increase monitoring, and they would likely want to be notified of your possible infection.See 1 more doctor answer

Some common are tobacco smoke and smog in air, heavy metals and pharmaceuticals for oral, and oil based toxic substance 4skin.See 2 more doctor answers
I had a possible exposure to HIV when I was pregnant tested neg twice during pregnancy and me and my daughter got tested and was neg shes5 tested 5/14?
See details: Your daughter is not infected and needs no further testing. If you were tested negative 3-6 months after exposure you also need no further testing.
Depends: Most women today do not reach child bearing years without having had chickenpox or the vaccine. That vaccine became available more than a decade ago for those over a year of age. If you had chickenpox or a blood test says you are immune, there is no reason to avoid it. If not immune, you should and a vaccination after delivery would be a good idea.
We make effort to: Not expose potentially or actually pregnant women to any ionizing radiation. The effects are on the developing pregnancy and depend on developmental age. You would need to know how many weeks pregnant at time of exposure. Tell your obstetrician or report back to where the x-ray procedure was done.
Radiology department: Universally ask about pregnancy before any x-ray procedure. There is potential injury to developing embryo and foetus to any ionizing radiation during the first 3 months of pregnancy, and other hazard in last 2 trimesters. See your obstetrician, tell the facility that did the ct scan and follow their advice.
Common sense: Always follow common sense, especially when pregnant. It is recommended to avoid the extremes of heat and cold when pregnant as you want to protect the growing baby inside you as best as you can as a mother. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Likely Not: There is no data to support this. Please discuss further with your ob/gyn.
Plan B: Plan b contraceptive within 48 hours of exposure. Call your doctor.
Possible: Generally, 25% of women get pregnant on the first attempt, 30% at the end of 3 attempts, 60% at the end of 6 attempts, 80% at the end of 9 attempts and 85% at the end of a year. The remaining 15%, by definition, are infertile and should consider seeing their gyn or a infertility specialist. Good luck.
Menopause: Menopause is defined as the normal ending of the menstrual cycle after one year without a period. The ovaries stop producing eggs and hormones. So women can no longer conceive after menopause and decreasing hormone levels can cause symptoms of aging, hot flashes, mood changes, skin changes less libido and vaginal dryness. Symptoms can be treated with both traditional and natural approaches.
Dietary means: Increasing the amount of fiber in diet to levels greater than 25-30 gms daily, hydration, exercise, addition of stool softener daily, avoidance of marked straining during defecation, avoidance of reading while on the potty to decrease the time in that position. Going immediately to the potty with the urge, and not trying to hold it.See 1 more doctor answer
Incorrectly bent down during pregnancy @24w. I have marginal previa. Could I've caused more issues or posed a risk to my baby?
Absolutely not: Bending over alone cannot cause you to hurt your baby or aggravate your previa. If you were to bend over and lift 50 pounds that wouldn't be recommended, but I don't think you're doing that. Marginal previas, at 24 weeks, typically do move out of the way by term, so fingers crossed that you can have a vaginal delivery at term! Best of luck.See 2 more doctor answers
I have gilbert's syndrome & my wife is pregnant, is there any risk of pregnancy& baby and is there any medications must be addressed during pregnancy?
Gilbert syndrome: You needn't worry gilberts is more of a medical oddity and poses no problem.
Multiple factors: Just being pregnant gives you a 1 in 3 chance for spotting or bleeding during the first 3 or 4 months of pregnancy. This is usually due to "implantation bleeding" which is usually benign and does not mean there is anything wrong. More concerning issues that can present as bleeding include miscarriage, molar or ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa, infection, and placental abruption.See 1 more doctor answer
