Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Acne may occur during pregnancy in association with indigestion problem, mental stress, oily skin, constipation etc. Here, you need to clean facial skin with cleanser regularly, keep bowel habit regular, avoid stress/ anxiety, drink more water and take sound sleep.

In addition, you can use some cream/ lotion like clindamycin/ benzoyl peroxide to get relief from pimples. Please consult with your doctor for proper prescription after clinical examination.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Not due to miscarriage.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Having acne during pregnancy is a normal finding due to the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. This is not suggestive of miscarriage. Please do not worry. As long as the ultrasound scan confirms a normal pregnancy there is no need to worry about a miscarriage.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

I dont usually wear tampons but wore one yesterday. When I took it out last last I felt a dull pain when urinating. This morning I went to urinate and felt the same pain. There is no urge to urininate any more than normal or a feeling of not emptying my bladder. Could this be the beginning stages of a UTI or problems from the tampon. I dont find them to be very easy to come out once they're in. My cervix sits very far back.

hi, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex back in august. Im still bleeding every month but i dont have clots or cramps and i used to have horrible cramps. I've gained 13lbs but i really don't look pregnant and everyday i feel flutters in my lower abdomen but im not sure if it's just my nerves twiching, my feet swell,i get leg cramps, and sometimes pain in my lower abdomen there are also times when my cervix hurts a little, and i have tons of vaginal discharge.I have taken numerous hpt's all negative and i've been to the doctor's twice once for a urine test and once for a blood pg test when i would have been 8weeks all negative i asked for an ultrasound but was told i could not have one since my results were negative. i do not have health insurance so i have to pay for my doctor's vists out of pocket. Im a little hesitant about having another blood test since the first was negative and it costs me $150. i would currently be 23 weeks if i am pregnant. i have been taking prenatal vitamins just in case. I would be grateful for any advice
