I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?

I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?

No: If you had surgical (d;c)
abortion the pregnancy was missed. If you used Cytotec (misoprostol) to induce termination it was unsuccessful. If there is a heart beat at 7 weeks and 4 days either the first heartbeat was missed or a new pregnancy was conceived. The abortion unfortunately was unsuccessful. Contact your doctor. ...Read more

How long after a medical abortion at 8w 5d, does it take the fetus to pass and come out?

24 to 72 hours: Once the 2nd of the two abortion pills are taken, contractions with fetal passage should begin in 24 to 72 hours. If that does not occur and the 2nd pill was not swallowed, but held between the check and gum, then you need to see your abortion MD for another ultrasound examination to determine fetal passage or not and the next treatment step as needed. ...Read more

Isn't it true that when women have an abortion in the first trimester the fetus isn't really developed. Yet?

Isn't it true that when women have an abortion in the first trimester the fetus isn't really developed. Yet?

Depends: This depends on when you believe life starts. Some say it is at conception when the egg and sperm join. Some say it is at about 24 weeks pregnant when the baby has a chance at surviving if it were born. Others say it is not until birth. This is a true ethical debate. ...Read more

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Certainly: A fetus can have normal karyotype and still have any one of a large variety of really bad congenital defects. That means many bad birth defects happen in babies who have normal karyotypes. As we each walk our journeys in life, we must make the best decisions we can, with the information we have at hand... people make the best call they can, and then move on, to the promises that the future holds. ...Read more

I was 12 wk preg. Fetus had cystic hygroma&above normal N.T&generalized edema, my Dr. Decided abortion, was it the right decision?

12 wks fetal hydrops: That early in pregnancy, edema is hydrops, generalized; an increased nuchal translucency will be seen, which later in pregnancy may turn into a cystic hygroma, unless septation was already present--as seen in severely affected 45X (Turner syndrome) fetuses. Many other potential causes, but prognosis of hydrops this early is dismal. An amniocentesis prior to abortion allows chromosomal analysis. ...Read more

I'm pregnant. The fetus has been diagnosed with 7q11.22 duplication. What are the percentages of Autism? Do we nee to consider abortion? Thanks,

Genetic Counseling: If you have had 22q11.22 duplication testing it is likely that you have access to genetic counseling. Important to raise questions with the genetic counselor or geneticist (doctor who specializes in genetics) about percentages with Autism and other developmental delays with this particular duplication. Decisions about whether to continue the pregnancy should be made after thorough discussion. ...Read more

I had abortion on 2-3, bec fetus had cystic hygroma&other anomalies. Blood HCG quantitative on 24-3 : 23.95. any indication?

Patience, expectancy: Your betaHCG may take several weeks to return to normal depending on the gestational age at which your pregnancy was terminated. If you have no pain, no excessive bleeding, no fever or other symptoms, there is little cause for alarm. Otherwise, be patient. If you remain concerned, you may want to repeat your HCG in another week or so. ...Read more

Tubal abortion. Dead fetus 17 x 27 mm located in pouch of douglas. Bhcg = 5.7 ; LMP = 9 jan; bleeding 2 mar. Will it absorbed in the body normally?

Tubal abortion. Dead fetus 17 x 27 mm located in pouch of douglas. Bhcg = 5.7 ; LMP = 9 jan; bleeding 2 mar. Will it absorbed in the body normally?

Yes, probably: A small number of ectopic pregnancies will actually "abort" out the end of the tube and not require surgery. This should never be the assumption, and weekly followup HCG levels should be performed until cycles resume and they remain negative. Also, in a case such as this, I would probably perform some form of ultrasound in the next month - this must be coordinate with an ob/gyn! ...Read more

33 yr healthy female.2 cesarean. Both healthy daughters. 2 missed abortions, first at week 9, no heartbeat. Second at week 12, fetus had heartbeat. Reason?

Many possibilities: Making a human being is very complicated. Sometimes something goes wrong. When your body recognizes the problem, you have a miscarriage. One of the most common problems is a genetic abnormality in the growing embryo. Other causes are recreational drug use, toxin exposure, trauma, maternal illness, infection... Since you have had 2 successful pregnancies, your chance of another is excellent! ...Read more

Need evaluation: I am very sorry to hear about your loss. You did not mention how far along you were. If this wasn't early pregnancy loss then the treatment is a D and C. If you are far along in pregnancy then an induction of labor may be warranted. Although maternal death is a theoretical complication this is exceedingly rare In caused by untreated infection or coagulation problems ...Read more

How could people say that abortion is not killing anything?

Wrong forum: This is not the place to talk about questions that are basically about religion and on which people will never agree. There there is life, there is death -- and there are people who are so respectful of life they will not swat a mosquito. I honor this though I disagree. I'd also suggest that your life will be happier if you not seek out arguments that you know will not get settled amicably. ...Read more

Could birth control eventually kill the fetus?

Could birth control eventually kill the fetus?

No: In a world that allows free speech, there are people who make political capital and money by making false, inflammatory statements about the things that are most personal and private. Having used birth control will not kill or harm the baby that you eventually want. Some contraceptives may prevent implanting the fertilized eggs -- this isn't a fetus and most religions are fine with this. ...Read more

Number of abortions: Sterilization must be a matter of individual choice. Forced sterilization based on political-"medical" considerations were common in the early 20th century, until judged to be an unconstitutional infringement on women's autonomy. Multiple abortions occur for many reasons-- repeated coercive sex, contraceptive failures, genetic defects, and life circumstances. None justify sterilization. ...Read more

How can I get a baby boy my age is 30 year I have a abortion 5th month due to fetal morphology is abnormal?

Same way every time: Urban myth may have you believe you can pre-select your offspring but that is bogus. If you go the test tube baby route you might be able to pretest an embryo & have it implanted, but that is tedious & expensive. You get pregnant & get whatever the successful sperm has made. (the sperm determines the sex)you have the same chance for boy or girl any pregnancy. ...Read more
