Can rough sex cause a miscarriage if I was diagnosed a month ago with threatened miscarriage but now I'm told I'm ok?

Can rough sex cause a miscarriage if I was diagnosed a month ago with threatened miscarriage but now I'm told I'm ok?

Well: It may make you bleed and cramp for 2 or 3 days afterward. Even though the bleeding and cramping after sex during pregnancy is often times more related to bleeding from a friable cervix, it can be difficult to distinguish this from a threatened miscarriage. But sex isn't a cause of pregnancy loss. ...Read more

Threatened miscarriage baby has a hearbeat should I be worried what should I do?

HaveATalkWithYourDoc: On one level you could "trust in the wisdom of Nature" and chill your anxiety--that most of these situations are Nature's response to a biological problem. On the other hand you and your doc should discuss the baby's viability. Depends on the baby's age so far. Early on, it's usually "in the hands of God." In later stages, with a viable baby, things can be done to help facilitate a viable birth. ...Read more

When I was 6 weeks along I spotted and had a threatened miscarriage. I never got an rh negative shot and I'm 21 weeks along now. Should I get one?

Depends: What is your Rh blood group? If you are Rh positive, you do not need the shot. It would be prudent to see your obstetrician regularly during pregnancy for the sake or your and your baby's health.
Wish you good health and a healthy baby! ...Read more

I'm going through a "threatened miscarriage" the dr said my cervix is closed. What's going to happen?

Please ask your doc: Your doc should explain everything about what could or could not happen to u it depends if u are really going to have one or not because when I use that term it could go neither way, your doc should be able to see a fetal htbeat by 6 1/2 - 7 weeks if it is not going to be one, if u are going to misc your cervix will open and u will start to bleed and pass tissue, or u may not pass the tissue. ...Read more

I'm rh negative. I had a threatened miscarriage at 6wks and I'm 21wks now. I was never given the shot. Should I go to the hospital and request it?

No: No, Rhogam is most effective within 72 hours of an event where an RH- mother's blood may come into contact with RH+ fetal blood. This late it would have no effect.

If it's known for sure that the baby's father is RH- also, then Rhogam could be withheld because it is not possible for 2 RH- parents to have an RH+ baby, so there would be no chance of sensitization to RH+ blood. ...Read more

If you had a threatened miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) how long to wait before having sex again?

If you had a threatened miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) how long to wait before having sex again?

Clarification?: Are you still pregnant or have you had a miscarriage? Older recommendations to wait for 3-6 months after a miscarriage before attempting another conception have only been shown to increase infertility risk without preventing any complications. Nowadays, it is recommended that you may resume sexual activity as soon as you feel like it. If you are sill pregnant, ask your obstetrician if sex is safe. ...Read more

I had a threatened miscarriage almost two weeks ago and the doctor said everything was ok but I still see brownish blood on and off when I wipe?

I had a threatened miscarriage almost two weeks ago and the doctor said everything was ok but I still see brownish blood on and off when I wipe?

Preg may be ok: I would see your dr again and get a serum pregnancy test now and in a couple of days. I would also get an ultrasound. If the serum levels in the pregnancy tests are increasing, and/or a fetal heart is seen by ultrasound, your pregnancy is probably ok. But, if not, you could have had a miscarriage or a tubal pregnancy. A tubal pregnancy is dangerous. See your dr. Again to figure out what's going on. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a threatened miscarriage due to severe cramps and bleeding. But my hormone levels are increasing. What could cause that?

Threatened miscarry: Many of the answers to your questions depend on getting more information from you. First of all it depends on how far along in your pregnancy you are now. The second thing is what hormone levels you are talking about. The pregnancy hormone (HCG) rises with pregnancy and if that level is going up quickly early in your pregnancy that is a good thing ...Read more

Five weeks pregnant and been to the ER two times and they said I had a threatened miscarriage but I have no pain. How can I stop the bleeding?

5 weeks bleeding: Miscarriages at this stage in pregnancy are very common. There is not likely anything you did or can do to cause or prevent a miscarriage. Time will tell whether your bleeding will be a sign of miscarriage. Go see your pregnancy doctor to get a blood test that you can repeat every 48 hours to help determine whether the pregnancy will continue or result in a miscarriage. ...Read more

I had threatened miscarriage at ~12 wks in my first pregnancy. I am now 4 wks pregnant & will fly long distance in 2 wks (16hrs each way) Is it risky?

I had threatened miscarriage at ~12 wks in my first pregnancy. I am now 4 wks pregnant & will fly long distance in 2 wks (16hrs each way) Is it risky?

No, but be careful: The flight itself is not a risk to your pregnancy. However, the typical process in long flights involves you sitting for prolonged periods of time and possibly getting dehydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water and try to get up to walk every couple hours to promote good circulation through your legs and prevent blood clot formation. ...Read more

What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

The: The "sack of the baby" is likely the amnion, which encases the amniotic fluid. Having a "low" sack is not very common or a recognized complication in pregnancy. It is possible to have the pregnancy be in an abnormal location (like the cervix, which would be really low!), but that doesn't seem to be the case here.
