Transvaginal: sonography is generally more accurate than transabdominal sonography in early pregnancy. Also, the inherent error range for ultrasound dating at this stage is about +/- 3 days, so it may be likely that all is well, but follow up with your doc to make sure. ...Read more

Period type miscarriage a month nd 2 weeks trying to get pregnant no period until spotting with clear bloody discharge could this be pregnancy?

Period type miscarriage a month nd 2 weeks trying to get pregnant no period until spotting with clear bloody discharge could this be pregnancy?

Doubtful: I have to admit your presentation is not that clear with the amount of info presented. First off, i would refrain from trying to get pregnant until you get your periods back on regular track for at least 2-3 months. That way you can "schedule" your pregnancy. When your periods are not back on schedule, you will be at the mercy of guess of what's going on. The only way to know - pregnancy test now. ...Read more

I am O negative blood type and had a miscarriage in August of last year due on January. They gave me the rhogam then, do i need it again if trying?

I am O negative blood type and had a miscarriage in August of last year due on January. They gave me the rhogam then, do i need it again if trying?

No: There is only risk of sensitization at times when there may be mixing of blood, for example during delivery or with a miscarriage/abortion. Rhogam also given during 2nd trimester in case a few of the baby's blood cells mix with mom's circulation to prevent sensitization. But if no fetus/baby or blood is present, no reason to do the rhogam. So no, you don't need it peri-conception. ...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

Negative RH: you will want to see you OB soon and get RH testing including anybody testing. You will want to be followed very closely in this pregnancy. Perhaps even seeking a consult with a maternal fetal medicine specialist due to your prior history. Best wishes. ...Read more

Passing large pieces of tissue from vagina 5 days before expected period, could this be an early miscarriage? What type test could tell?

Passing large pieces of tissue from vagina 5 days before expected period, could this be an early miscarriage? What type test could tell?

It is possible: If you were pregnant and miscarrying, then a pregnancy test would likely still be positive. You should check this. If it is negative, then this is probably not a miscarriage. Given that it is abnormal anyway, you should run it by your ob/gyn and see if they want you to be seen. ...Read more
