Pregnant and taking Humira

A: I was pregnant last June and on Humira. I was told by several docs it was ok.  My GI told me he wouldn''t take it because not enough is known.  I ended up miscarrying at 17wks.  I am currently almost 6wks pregnant again and flaring.  I am chosing not to take the Humira this time.  It never had me in remission so it is not like it was working.  They say the benefits to the mother are greater than the risks to the baby.  It is a class B in pregnancy.  I guess it is going to be your decision.  Good luck with the pregnancy.  injecting if I''m not too bad. Guess I''ll have to wait and see what the Gyny says Thanks for your reply IGI had many conversations with my GI prior to conceiving and he...

HCG Levels on the rise, but no sign of baby

A: I''m following up on the latest...I have a healthy baby with a strong beating heart!!!! I pushed for another US and proved the doctors wrong!!!

I have been taking trinessa for over a year now. Just recently, I have been experiencing nausea and?

A: Hi Im male 41, I have a friend, she is a gynecologist... she knows her stuff I spoke to her and she sent me this for you TriNessa (28) Oral Uses This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin and an estrogen. These hormones prevent pregnancy in 3 ways. One way is by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation). A second way is by changing the cervical mucus, making it more difficult for an egg to meet sperm (fertilization). A third way is by changing the womb lining, making it difficult for a fertilized egg to attach to the lining of the womb (implantation). A fertilized egg (embryo/unborn baby) needs to attach to the womb to receive blood and nutrients and continue to grow. If an...


bleeding 5 weeks pregnant

A: I am 5 weeks and 5 days and started bleeding. With a history of miscarrages I went to the hospital right away (the bleeding started on a Saturday night and continued into Sunday so the Dr.s office was closed). They did HCG levels and they came back around 14,000. On the ultrasound the everything was in place and still very high up. I was instructed to follow up with my Dr., take it slow and rest for a couple days and not to lift anything very heavy. What you need to watch out for is heavy cramping, clots, fever or chills. Some bleeding early on is caused by implantation, but that is usually around 2 weeks after fertalization. Bleeding can also be caused by the ovary that is supplying the blood. Sometimes it can "overproduce". I have an 8 year old and did not have or feel anything...

A: Hi there! I feel for you. I''m almost 7 weeks pregnant and Bipolar as well. I used to take Seroquel but eventually switched to Trileptal, Gabapentine and Cymbalta together. I''m now trying Omega 3 supplements. (If you haven''t tried them they are highly reccommended by many psychatrists ESPECIALLY for pregnant women... not to mention they are supposed to help your baby''s development and make them smart...YAY)... okay anyways... My doctor told me that although I HAD to stay off of the Trileptal that if worse comes to worse I could go back to Seroquel. They obviously like to avoid anything that could potentionally harm the baby... However, if the Mommy''s aren''t in good health it can harm the baby...Good luck and keep your chin up! Hi - all I can tell you is that I stayed on Seroquel...


I have a 5 month year old daughter and i just found out that i am 6 weeks pregnant with my second

A: I am currently 38 weeks pregnant and I have a now 19 month old daughter. Throughout my pregnancy I have done the same things that you are describing and continue to do so. The only restriction that my doctor gave me was when I was spotting a little. I''m sure there are many other women that have had to care for a small child while pregnant and made it through. You will be fine, if you are doing to omuch your body will tell you. LOL I''d be in trouble if I couldn''t lift more than 20lb, I think DD passed that mark around 6mo or so (right around the time I found out I was preggo). I continued to do everything I normally do throughout my first pregnancy with no problems, and also this time. If you do feel any kind of strain from something...


blood problem, anemia, APS, now epilepsy

A: yes I think you should see an hematologist not just for your coagulation problem but also for you eosinophils increase which can be caused beside of parasite and allergies to other causes as eosinophilia. If you do not have menses caused by you pcod , meaning you are not bleeding or you might be and taking iron without any specific causes beside of an explained anemia [probably of chronic disease or hemolysis ] can be dangerous by overloading iron.The number of white blood cells may go up and this may be because of a bacterial infection, bleeding or a burn. More rarely the cause of a raised white count is due to leukaemia, cancer or malaria. A person may lose white blood cells because they have autoimmune problems - this is where the antibodies that should fight diseases attack the...


7 Weeks pregnant with unusual cramps

A: Hello, I''m afraid I can''t say what is causing this. Your abdomen does contain a number of organs - bladder, bowel, as well as uterus and others. Cramping sensations can originate from any of these. If it is just occasional and not continuous, I doubt it is serious but early pregnancy pain can be a symptom of ectopic pregnancy so pain should not be ignored. If it worsens or lasts longer you should see the doctor. Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy....
