Getting low risk results on a panorama test does it decrease chances of miscarriage?

Getting low risk results on a panorama test does it decrease chances of miscarriage?

No: I don't believe the panorama test decreases your risk of miscarriage. If the result comes back as low risk it just decreases the risk of having a baby with the genetic abnormalities tested. There are several other causes of miscarriage that have nothing to do with genetic testing. ...Read more

I was taking Zoloft (sertraline) when I had 3 miscarriages could this have been the cause? All tests were fine.

I was taking Zoloft (sertraline) when I had 3 miscarriages could this have been the cause? All tests were fine.

Yes, it is possible.: According to a study published in a canadian study of more than 5, 000 women, there was an association between taking antidepressants, particularly the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) such as paxil, (paroxetine) prozac, and zoloft, and an increased risk for miscarriage. But researchers caution that this association does not imply a cause-and-effect relationship. ...Read more

What tests can I have done at the doctors to see if im infertile? Been trying for 2 and half years with no luck. Can miscarriages cause infertility

You ARE "infertile": However, "subfertile" would be a better term probably. And yes, there are a number of tests that should be done to evaluate your fertility, but you must also have your physician ask you questions and examine you to help determine the cause for not becoming pregnant. ...Read more

I miscarried on 6/16 2014. I went to the dr. On 7/30- negative blood test. 8/7 negative home test. 8/16 & 8/17 positive test. How far I could I be?

I miscarried on 6/16 2014. I went to the dr. On 7/30- negative blood test. 8/7 negative home test. 8/16 & 8/17 positive test. How far I could I be?

Hard to be accurate: A pregnancy test will usually turn positive somewhere around 4 weeks (2 weeks after conception). So you probably weren't 4 weeks on 8/7, but became 4 weeks sometime between 8/7 and 8/16. So you're likely around 4-5 weeks. An ultrasound at 6+ weeks will give you a better idea. ...Read more

Am 29 had 3 miscarriages between each one around a year no heat beat and baby stop at 6 weeks test shows subclinical hypothyrosim is this a reason?

Am 29 had 3 miscarriages between each one around a year no heat beat and baby stop at 6 weeks test shows subclinical hypothyrosim is this a reason?

Cant say for sure: Sub clinical means that you do not have overt symptoms. The body is an amazing and complex machine that responds to subtle changes in hormone levels. If you do not need medical treatment yet I would also consult with an acupuncturist /chinese medicine practitioner. I have had amazing results in patients with both thyroid and fertility issues with these modalities. ...Read more

Are my chances increased after three miscarriages? My ex husband n I had two. Doc did test on me n all came back normal. Curr. Preg n scared to death

Yes: 3 miscarriages qualifies as 'recurrent pregnancy loss' sometimes the miscarriages aren't due to you, but due to sperm as well. Chromosomal abnormalities have to be considered in both of you. You may want to see an infertility specialist to get some testing to see if that could be an issue (i.e. Balanced translocations, etc). Without knowing what tests were done, can't speak if had all workup. ...Read more

"miscarriage? ": The information provided in your question is not sufficient to give an accurate answer, but you should obtain a serum pregnancy test (HCG) and see your healthcare provider for an exam and advice, as you may in fact still be pregnant. ...Read more

Trust the test: A pregnancy test can detect a bhcg of about 20. Your bhcg roughly doubles every 48 hours. Let's say the first day you took it you were barely pregnant with a level of 19. 48 hours later your bhcg would be 38 which is way above the level for a urine pregnancy test to detect it. Home tests work really well and can be trusted. Repeat in a few days and if negative then you are not pregnant. ...Read more

I'm 23 year old. Got married last year had two miscarriages 1st miscarriage was 6 weeks 2nd miscarriage was 7.5 weeks Which type of tests you recommend me?

GYN MD visit: Head to your favorite GYN MD and make sure that you do not have an infection that hasn't been determined as of yet. The products of conception should also have been tested. Often an antibiotic is given prophylactically for such a purpose if all STD testing and other parameters are negative. Keep in mind that the number one cause of early miscarriage are genetic incompatibilities. ...Read more

Not your fault: About 25% of the pregnancies are lost spontaneously, many due to chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo and many others for which a cause can not be ascertained. There was nothing you could have done. I am sorry for your loss. May He bless you with good health and a healthy baby! ...Read more

Possibly.: Assuming your period on nov 23rd was a real period and that your periods are regular (sometimes they're not after a pregnancy loss), you'd expect a period in december but you haven't had one...If you had unprotected sex, it's always safe to assume the possibility and I would get tested. Were you trying for pregnancy? If not and not pregnant, consider contraception. Get on a prenatal vitamin btw! ...Read more
