Question: Hi, my colleague had undergone two abortions earlier and she is pregnant. However, she had intercourse with her husband even when doctor asked not to have. Will this lead to her miscarriage.

Brief Answer:
Not related to miscarriage.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
An early pregnancy after an abortion can cause weakness in the mother and needs a regular monitoring and proper supplements by a gynecologist. However this is not a cause of recurrent abortion. No need to worry. Consult her gynecologist for proper supplements.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

My daughter was 5 weeks pregnant. Her hcg level were 400. Checked a couple of days later hcg level was 200. Sonogram showed no evidence of a baby in the uterus. She was told to go home and that she would have natural miscarriage. After one no miscarriage. She went back to Doctor hcg levels were 1742. No sonogram was done. She then had to have a shot of methotrexate. Went back week later hcg levels had only dropped 12 percent. She was given another shot. No other follow up testing was done. Her husband called Dr. Told her They were going to Paris did any need to be done. doctor said have fun. Second day in Paris she had severe stomach pain went to hospital had 400 cc of blood in her abdomen. Had emergency surgery and removal of left Fallopian tube. Question is should her doctor have done more tests after shots to check for an etopic pregnancy.

I had a late miscarriage 8 weeks ago (21 weeks gestation). My first period was 4.5 weeks after birth and in the past 3 weeks I have become more bloated then I was before. It seems to get worse at night and is getting worse with time. My stomach is very bubbly, with lose and urgent stools every morning (up to 4 times). Is there anything I should worry about or indeed anything I can do to help it?

Hi, Am 3 days before period, but had intercourse with husband at around day 19 of cycle. Started without condom, finished with one. Sore breasts day after and have continued for a week, hot flushes two days after and have had extreme fatigue for about 4 days, as well as increased appetite. Have done pregnancy test but negative. However, have four children, 9 pregnancys in total, last 3 (4th child, miscarriage and termination) were all pull out method, so am extremely fertile. Last pregnancy was a year ago and I was 35. Age doesnt seem to present a barrier either. Could I be pregnant or is it likely to be something else.
