Q: 

bleeding, cramping, continuing pregnancy after abortion pill

A: Dear Lian, Thank you for your question about bleeding and cramping and possibility of continuing pregnancy after the abortion pill. You should definitely see a doctor, to make sure that the pregnancy didn"t continue. The failure rate for the abortion pill is 2-5%. You should not wait until the pregnancy hormones decline - it can take up to 1-2 months to have a negative pregnancy test after the abortion pill.  I am disappointed to hear that the doctor would not see you because they did not administer the abortion pills.  If you were in NYC, we would see you right away.  You do not really need to go to a hospital.  At a minimum, all you need is...
Q: 

abortion pill and continuing pregnancy

A: Hi Tere, I would advise that you talk to your regular doctor if not the one who advised you to take the abortion pill. If you need a referral, contact a pregnancy resource center and see what they can tell you. http://www.optionline.org or call 1-800-395-HELP.

Q: 

Hi, there. My wife, 34-year-old, was just diagnosed breast cancer (Pathology: invasive breast carcinoma, poorly differentiated, Bloom Richardson Elston Mod. Grade III; DCIS, high grade, with focal comedonecrosis; Ultrasound detcted size could be 4-5 cm). She''s in the 12th week of her first prangnancy. My questions are: considering the size and the bad type of BC, should we terminate the pregnancy asap to start the treatment? One doctor suggested that. If she keeps pragnant, how much less chances of surviving the cancer compare to those a non-pregnant woman with the same type of BC? Do the hormones of pregnancy make it harder to successfully treat breast cancer? Is it difficult or impossible to do surgery on the pregnant woman in her 4th month of pregnancy? If she continues pregnancy, will it worsen her chances of recovering from breast cancer? Can breast cancer treatment during pregnancy harm the baby? We want to hear from you, the expert, rather than from some unreliable Web pages. Thanks.

A: There are windows of opportunity to provide the baby safety and your wife treatment during the pregnancy. she needs to be in the hands of a comprehensive NCI designated cancer center though where they will have experts very familiar with dealing with pregnancy simultaneous to breast cancer treatment. if you are within a few hours of us please consider bringing her to us. just call 443-287-2778. Her breast cancer at this point is stage 2 and possibly 3. an ultrasound of her lymph nodes needs to be done to see how they look at this point too. hormone receptors needs to be done to see if the cancer is stimulated to grow by estrogen or not. many things to consider... so don''t hastily do anything based on just one opinion. you need a surgical...
Q: 

In 2004 I Had My Tubes Tied, 1 Year Later I Became Pregnant. Due To Circumstances Didn''t Continue pregnancy. Now I Had My Period But For Only 3 Days Not Like Me Usually Have Menstrual For 6-7 Days Heavily. Could There Be A Chance Of pregnancy?

A: Periods means periods either for 3 days or 7 days. 3 days period are also normal if on time. Tubal ligation is one of the effective methods of birth control with least chances of pregnancy. If you got normal flow of the blood during periods then you are not pregnant. Some ladies can have light periods during first month of pregnancy. It will be better to get pregnancy test to clear doubts....


Q: 

continuing pregnancy?

A: Hi Sammy,    Thanks for your question. I will answer thoroughly and honestly.    Babies rarely survive abortions so the odds are strong that you are no longer pregnant. You have a way less than 1% chance. There are stories of babies surving abortions and being born healthy but these are normally stories of a woman carrying twins or a late-term abortion where the child was born alive. In early term abortions like yours, the abortionist looks to make sure enough of the baby"s body parts are accounted for to ensure the abortion was complete, because any of the baby"s body parts left decomposing in the mother can create a life-threatening infection (which you obviously don"t have). Sometimes, when they only get one baby, they can think the abortion is...

Q: 

pregnancy tests, bleeding after the abortion pill

A: Dear Anna, Everything you describe sounds completely normal.  Bleeding after a medical abortion can last for weeks to months.  It is common and normal for the bleeding to last for weeks to months after the abortion pill. The bleeding can be daily, or it can come and go, or there can be spotting.  There can be clots (small or big, red blood, or brown blood.  This is all normal. A urine pregnancy test will remain positive for at least 2-4 weeks after the abortion pill, so it is not helpful.  It is always important to have a follow up when you do the pill, to make sure it worked.  The good news is the bleeding you describe sounds like the pill worked.  However, you can still have heavy bleeding and a
Q: 

X-ray effects on pregnancy ?

A: Hi, Welcome to ehealthforum. X-rays are generally safe. If your doctor finds that you need X-rays for diagnosis of a medical problem or injury, it is okay to have them. It''s better for your baby that you should be healthy to be able to continue pregnancy safely. The risk from the radiation exposure to your baby is so small that most doctors would treat your pregnancy just like any other pregnancy. If you''re really worried about your baby''s risk, a radiation physicist can help to figure out exactly how much radiation your baby has been exposed to. Usually, an unborn baby should not be exposed to more than 5 rad. Because most medical x-rays cause much less radiation than this, talk with your doctor to see if it...
