10 was preg started bleeding thurs. Doc said there is a clot inbtwn uterus and placenta. Started bleeding again this am. Now red instead of brown?

See below:: A clot behind the placenta can go either way. It can turn into a miscarriage, or it can go away. The outcome is hard to predict. This bleeding is usually followed by ultrasound. Sometimes the blood leaks between the membranes and the uterus and comes out the cervix where you can see it. Best wishes! ...Read more

I had my scan yesterday at 14 weeks at my ob & it showed marginal placenta previa- will I bleed as my uterus stretches if my placenta is to migrate up?

No.: The placenta does not necessarily "move" a much as the uterus simply grows.

Usually for something like this, a follow up scan is done in the third trimester to see if the previa has resolved. The majority do. ...Read more

Doc I'm 20 week pregnant now, can I take cleaxane injection on tummy any side during this time? Any chance of needle to enter placenta or uterus?

Doc I'm 20 week pregnant now, can I take cleaxane injection on tummy any side during this time? Any chance of needle to enter placenta or uterus?

Get instructions: Clexane injections are given very superficially just barely below the skin. It is very important that someone teaches you how to use them before you start doing them on your own. If you are using them correctly then it is impossible to hit the uterus. Make sure you are trained before attempting to use them on your own. Your question implies that you have not been taught adequately. ...Read more

28 week ultrasound showes my baby had big facial features like lips, nose, eyes could this b because its squishes to my placenta or uterus?

28 week ultrasound showes my baby had big facial features like lips, nose, eyes could this b because its squishes to my placenta or uterus?

Did the doctor: Think this was abnormal or was this your impression of the pictures? The head/body ratio of the fetus is normally larger than it is in an older child or adult, so you might simply be seeing normal development. Also, if the tech was trying to take a picture showing the facial features, the rest of the body will be out of focus making the facial features seem more prominent. ...Read more

Do the birth-control pills prevent fertilization or they just prevent the fertilized egg to attach to the uterus?

Do the birth-control pills prevent fertilization or they just prevent the fertilized egg to attach to the uterus?

Multi - ways: Birth control pills work in many ways depending on the type (ie Progesterone only or combination pills). The main function is to stop ovulation from occurring. If no egg is released then there is no egg to fertilize. If this fails and an egg is made and released - the secondary defense is thinning the lining to prevent embryos from implanting. They also effect cervical mucus. ...Read more

My wife is pregnant and I am concerned about superfetation occurring where a new baby is conceived but then unable to attach to the uterus wall, resulting in miscarriage. I know it is highly unlikely but is this a reasonable concern? Thank you.

My wife is pregnant and I am concerned about superfetation occurring where a new baby is conceived but then unable to attach to the uterus wall, resulting in miscarriage. I know it is highly unlikely but is this a reasonable concern? Thank you.

Very Very Rare: To say that Superfetation is rare is a gross understatement. There have been about 10 cases documented in all of the medical literature. Nearly all Ob/Gyns go through their entire careers without seeing a case. Being struck by lightning or winning the lottery is more common than superfetation. Its not something I would worry about!
