Question: Hi,

This is with reference to pregnancy. My wife is pregnant second time (last time got terminated due to missed abortion/ miscarriage) and is in 11th week currently, consulting a doctor in XXXXXXX With early scan and then during 8th week scan, the baby foetus was found to be good and healthy. Now we have to wait until 3rd month scan for further as advised by the doctor. But there is this worry and we want to be assured that everything is good (due to missed abortion last year). Wanted to know is there any test or scan we can undergo to be safe and take remedy in case of any concern - in context of before going for 3rd month scan.

Let me know if you need further details.

Brief Answer:
Be optimistic

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Missed abortion once can be due to chromosomal anomaly. This is the commonest cause of first trimester abortion.
Other causes should be ruled out like diabetes and hypothyroidism.
So, blood sugar fasting and post prandial levels and TSH levels should be done.
Moreover, folic acid should be continued.
Stress should be avoided and she should be optimistic.
Rest, scan should be.done at 3 months.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Hello Dr, Iam a 53-year old woman. My skin is comparatively very dry. Since my teenage I am having some itching and irritation at different parts of my feet and elbows and on right knee. I approached many skin specialists, and tried many ointments. They all give temporary cure. A few weeks back, I consulted with a skin specialist and he recommended to take a biopsy to distinguish whether it is eczema or psoriasis; it is confirmed as psoriasis. I did my LFT and having no problem, sonography of my stomach was also conducted, and having no problem.. Now the doctor prescribed Oncortex 7.5 (once in a week for 3 weeks) and Tablet Folic acid 5 mg twice in a week. When I checked Oncortex in the web, i happened to see its side effects. So slightly confused whether to take or not. I need your advice. My dr also said to consult with him after 3 weeks. Hope nothing will happened to me harmful. I have blood pressure and cholesterol, taking medicines for them regularly. Moreover, I am taking tablets for once in a month for Vit B12 deficiency.
