But why should be diabetes be uncontolled. It can be controlled well with insulin which helps in increasing the success rate of pregnancy.

He prevalence of Type-2 diabetes mellitus is higher in women, partly related to obesity. The Type-2 diabetes typically doubles the coronary heart disease risk in men and triples in women. Diabetes Mellitus in pregnant women poses problems for the mother and the fetus. Women with established diabetes may have menstrual problems and difficulty in conceiving. While, pregnancy itself worsens diabetic control and may cause certain diabetic complications to progress in mother. Maternal diabetes is also hazardous for the fetus and carries an increased risk for fetal loss and major congenital malformations. However, nowadays most women of child bearing age can realistically expect to become mothers of healthy children with intensive glycemic control. Improvements have ranged from technological advances in fetal surveillance (ultrasound scanning) to home glucose monitoring and intensive insulin regimens, enabling women with multiple diabetic complications to have successful pregnancies. Diabetes Mellitus in pregnancy is classified into pre-gestational and gestational diabetes; gestational diabetes is defined as diabetes that is discovered during pregnancy. Approximately 7% of all pregnancies are complicated by GDM. Normal pregnancy reduces insulin sensitivity because of diabetogenic effects of placental hormones. This effect is maximal in the late second and third trimester. Gestationaldiabetes resolves after delivery, but may recur in subsequent pregnancies and the lifetime risk for developing Type-2 diabetes is 30%. Indications for detection of diabetes in pregnant women * Family history of Diabetes * Glucose in urine sample * History of unexplained prenatal loss * History of large baby * History of congenitally malformation infant * Maternal obesity * Maternal age more than 25 years * Members of ethnic/racial group with high prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus To prevent excess spontaneous abortion

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.
