Hi Aisha;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
You should be happy to have one girl and a boy inspite of having mitral valve prolapse.If the doctors as well as your family members are saying not to take risk of another pregnancy then i guess it is enough reason not to go for it.Still if you think logically it is like you are risking life of mother of two kids just because you want to have another.Heart disease is risky and you have taken your chances so better to avoid pregnancy.
Thanks

My husband is 65 years old, 178 lbs, 6 . Has been diagnosed w/MVP. Had stress tests and heart pics and ultra sound. Dr. gave him Ramipril 2.5mg to start taking and he is taking them. He is not swelling in ankles, heart is strong, not having severe shortness of breath and is VERY active. Dr. said will watch valve for now and do nothing. However, he is having more frequent irregular heart beats & dizziness when he gets up from sitting. When we go cycling he may start having palipitations, but after a while it subsides w/the exercise. So is there anything more he can do when the palipitations last a long time? Certain exercises? An asprin? What if anything can can he do to help them subside? He is also taking Viagra, does that conflict with his medicine and condition?

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.

Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
