Pregnancy (Definition)

Can you tell me if throughout pregnancy, what has effect on the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome?

Can you tell me if throughout pregnancy, what has effect on the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome?

SIDS : SIDS happens after birth. As far as I know, there are no prenatal risk factors. Of course, you should take good care of yourself, and follow your ObGyn's instructions. After birth, follow the SIDS prevention instructions, and always put your baby on it's back, to sleep. http://www.cdc.gov/sids/ ...Read more

What does sids (sudden infant death syndrome) have to do with smoking?

What does sids (sudden infant death syndrome) have to do with smoking?

POISON!!: We don't know the exact specifics of what happens, but the statistics clearly show much higher rates of sids in parents who smoke. If mom smoked while pregnant, the toxins likely affect baby's respiratory center in brain and make it less mature. After birth, the poisons and toxins in the smoke, which can stick to your clothes, may affect the "switch" to tell baby to breath or affect the heartbeat. ...Read more

See hematologist: You should see a hematologist for further evaluation. There are many causes of thrombocytopenia- or low platelets. See a hematologist for a careful history and examination. You could have an autoimmune condition called immune thrombocytopenic purpura- however, other causes have to be ruled out as well that would include pregnancy related thrombocytopenia, vitamin deficiency, other things.

Maybe: A series of studies showed organic milk had healthier fats than conventional milk (more omega 3s, for instance), that the breast milk of women who drank organic had even healthier fat profile than those who drank conventional, & and that the babies born to women who drank organic during pregnancy & nursing had far less eczema. Genetics sets susceptibility, but there are also environmental triggers. ...Read more

Mother drinking, smoking, taking dilantin, Valium pretty strong, ad a questionable pegnancy drug 1965. Could this cause brain chemical imbalance .

Many things combine: In our lives many partake of many things that are not good for us and they impact our entire body. As part of our body, the brain is not immune - but there's no reason to search for a prime culprit. If your Mom's mental health is a problem, a good psych eval and treatment is the important thing. The questionable substances may be addressed in such therapy. Try not to strengthen her defensiveness. ...Read more

Is the aspiration abortion method safe and effective for early pregnancies? How come it is so quick vs. Other surgical methods? Is it fda approved?

I'm not: Sure about a specific "aspiration technique". There are small devices that aspirated and do not require the same amount of anesthesia as a suction d@c. It's gonna be the sterility of where your going but most surgical terminations r done by some form of suction ( aspiration same). ...Read more

Not entirely: there's definitely a risk of terminating too many or too few. This varies so much with different centers/operators that finding the average rate would be truly misleading. best of luck on this one. ...Read more

Hello, I had an aspiration abortion 8/19 and now have had 5 positive pregnancy tests. I have had unprotected sex and have not gotten a period. I feel similar to the first time I was pregnant. Could I be pregnant this soon? The test line is very faint but

Hello, I had an aspiration abortion 8/19 and now have had 5 positive pregnancy tests. I have had unprotected sex and have not gotten a period. I feel similar to the first time I was pregnant. Could I be pregnant this soon? The test line is very faint but

Possible: From what you described you could well be pregnant. It would be prudent to see your doctor for a blood test for HCG level. You may repeat the home test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
