If a placenta was low lying during one pregnancy does it mean it will be low lying again for the next?

If a placenta was low lying during one pregnancy does it mean it will be low lying again for the next?

No.: Placentation is not predictable and does not correlate with prior pregnancies, with the exception of placenta previa +/- accreta, which tends to recur. Your 20 week sonogram will establish placentation with great accuracy. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it ok to have clitoris orgasm even during and after 7th month of pregnancy? Anterior lying placenta and no complications as such.

Is it ok to have clitoris orgasm even during and after 7th month of pregnancy? Anterior lying placenta and no complications as such.

Here are some...: The traditional controversy over sexual intercourse or masturbation for pleasure during pregnancy, especially toward its end has endless continued, but more toward meeting the demand of political correctness than medical reasons. But for the sacredness of motherhood, most women would avoid such pleasure toward the end of pregnancy. More? Ask your ob-gyn doc timely. ...Read more

What does lowline placenta means during 13th week of pregnancy.Is it safe to take 2hrs flite after icsi?

Likely okay...: A "low-lying" placenta is not uncommon early in pregnancy and, by itself, is not a big concern, especially if you are not having any bleeding. (may be reasonable to avoid sexual intercourse until it moves, ask you healthcare provider.) regarding the procedure you had, and taking a flight, to be safe, i would consult your obstetrician or midwife. ...Read more

During my 1st pregnancy my placenta was infected with gbs and i lost the baby at 31wks. I am on my 2nd pregnancy when can I be treated for gbs?

During my 1st pregnancy my placenta was infected with gbs and i lost the baby at 31wks. I am on my 2nd pregnancy when can I be treated for gbs?

Not until 35wks: All pregnant women should get tested for GBS, group B streptococcus, at 35wks. It's not an infection; just colonizes the vagina. If it gets onto your baby as it passes through the birth canal, it can lead to sepsis (whole body infection) -- so if you have it and you're going into labor, you HAVE to be at a hospital to get IV antibiotics (PCN). Can't do anything about it before labor. No symptoms. ...Read more

Can taking too many Tums during pregnancy cause aging of the placenta, or calcify the placenta?

Can taking too many Tums during pregnancy cause aging of the placenta, or calcify the placenta?

No: Not that I know of. Granted there is calcium in Tums, but a lot of women take calcium in pregnancy and, for the most part, your kidneys are going to filter out and pee out, excess calcium. Having said that, it's always possible to overdose on any medication, so I would not take more than is recommended. If Tums isn't helping your gastric reflux, then consider taking Zantac or Pepcid. ...Read more
