I have pots, and lost my baby to placental abruption (which they think caused the pots) should I not try again? Better to adopt? Once pots gets better

POT[t]S. Stands for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and is caused by abnormal activity of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system (ans). I think that the "abruptio" and the pots are from a common cause---- compromised body chemistrry, in the control mechanisms of the ANS and the normal function of pregnancy. My guess is that it is due to lousy diet that provides the energy for cellularfunction.

Can progesterone defiency cause placental abruption?

Great question! Not known. Placenta is the major producer of Progesterone in pregnancy, and Progesterone serves to keep the uterus quiet as the fetus grows. It is possible that perturbations in the uteroplacental interface (eg placental infarction) could lead to both Progesterone decline and increased risk for abruption. No study has addressed this to date; abruption remains an impossible complication to predict.
