Avatar n tn I have read that the hormonal changes that you go through after a miscarriage are essentially the same that women face after giving birth. That is, what you are probably experiencing is some form of a "post-partum" depression. I would definately talk to your obgyn and let them know. If they cannot recommend someone to talk to, perhaps your primary physician can.
Avatar f tn I have met very few people that haven't mentally hated themselves or regretted their choice after abortion. Have you considered other routes, such as adoption? If you know you can not handle it alone, let someone else care for the child who perhaps can not have children and can give it everything needed. I know you're scared, but oftentimes when you are afraid you make rash choices and look back with regret. Do not make a choice overnight.
885961 tn?1249583403 I was reading in another forum about depression and stress and anxiety attacks because I was looking for something to tell me that either I am normal or that I am not alone in this and noticed many people posted things that are similar to what I have been going through. Just recently in the last couple months I started experiencing Anxiety and OCD again, mild but its still there never the less. I experienced anxiety and OCD when I was a teenager about 15 years old and had an abortion.
Avatar f tn We have received suggestions in the past asking us to create an Abortion Community forum, but after careful consideration have decided not to create one at this time. For now questions of this nature should be posted in the Women's Health forum. Thats what med help wrote me so im guessing we have been declined yet again!! lol I still think it would be better to have one..but im not the creator of med help either! LOL If i was there would be a forum...
Avatar n tn some how the administrators messed up my acount so I have to go with the new nickname. I am currently 11 weeks prego, and am going through sever depression. It seems to e that my depression is getting worse and is not just a first trimester thing. I have seen a psycholigist, who ranked my depression and suggested that I take antidepressant and that it will probably get worse later in pregnancy. my OB thinks antidepressants' effect on baby is unknown.
Avatar f tn I know many women have asked this question before, so I wanted to post a journal entry about getting my period after D&C. I had to get a D&C on April 2, 2008 after finding out that my pregnancy was non-viable/missed abortion. My doctor told me I should start my cycle within 4-6 weeks after the D&C, and I started my period yesterday, May 4, 2008. I thought it would be a light cycle following the D&C, but it actually seems to be heavier than normal.
Avatar n tn The deal is that for a few weeks I had been feeling enormous depression, it was one of my first signs. I cried all the time. I was angry the rest of the time. All for no reason. I told my fiancee that I really needed counseling because I was going crazy. I thought my period was late because of stress, I was not worrying about it, I was sure it would come. It never did. I took the test so sure it was negative.
997670 tn?1297176671 do i fit in here. I had an abortion in my youth. I had extreme panic ocd and depression and was taking valium. i made some tough choices. this website has made me feel alone.
Avatar f tn I think you are having a little bit of depression after having the abortion and I think you need to work on that first, before bringing a baby into the mix. Wasn't your b/f a big reason for you getting the abortion? Is he on board with having a baby? Please don't take offense, I am just thinking of what may be best for you.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn There's actually not a great deal of difference in early pregnancy except that the symptoms of pms usually go away when AF arrives or just before/after. Whereas pregnancy symptoms not only continue but increase in intensity. Hope this helps and good luck with finding out!
Avatar f tn This is going to sound stupid but I sneezed really hard (hurt bad!) and after that all symptoms went away. I have been really thirsty the past few days but that has even subsided. No cramping but achy on my left side and no spotting. Today is day 8 dpt and i used a HPT and was BFN. I know it might be too soon but it softens the blow later. I am on a daily progestrone shot. My doc does not monitor any levels during the 2ww. My blood pregnancy test is on Monday which will be 13 dpt.
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when I should start to having pregnancy symptoms after iui. I am 6 days post iui and yesterday I started feeling naused. It woke me up during the night and I still feel the same today. I don't know if I have a bug or if is maybe a sign. I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
331422 tn?1309930249 fatigue of mainly in my back, legs, shoulders and arms 1 1/2 months after a miscarriage two years ago. I have dificulties climbing up stairs and getting up after sitting on the ground or crouching ( I have to use my hands) and I get easily out of breath with light activities. The level of muscle fatigue varies throughout the day and increases with physical or mental stress and the late afternoon and evening. I have become noticably weaker lifting and gripping things.
117004 tn?1218648744 I had pg symptoms for about 2-3 weeks after my m/c. I don't know of anyone who needed surgery for a heart-shaped uterus. I have heard it can make conception slightly more difficult but don't know if it can be corrected. My mother has a tipped uterus and was told she would have difficulties conceiving and such. She never had any problems. Hopefully your m/c was an unfortunate fluke and not related to the shape of your uterus. Good luck!
Avatar n tn hi i have been sick during and after eating for the past 2 months. after reading everything you guys have written it all seems we are in a viscous circle of stress related stomach upset. i do believe that the longer we stress the worse it gets and the worse it gets the more we stress especially because it seems no one can help us. i also have sleeplessness and gas that go along with the bloat. has any one figured out anything more about the pill having to do with it?
Avatar n tn I had told anyone who would listen about the pg. Then 5 days after my b-day I found out the same thing. The baby stopped developing 2+ weeks before and it was over. After having the d&c I cried for weeks. I got so tired of people saying "it happened for a reason" because when you are in that position, it is hard to believe.
Avatar n tn i have like a irritating headache everyday, i have the heartburn every night, i am having to urinate alot more than normally and i have a discharge. Has anyone had these symptoms after TL and been pregnant? I really appreciate the info.....
Avatar n tn I would just say that make sure you are over your mc and taking good care of your body if you want to conceive right away And just to let you know, a friend of mine had an abortion and got pregnant right after the abortion. one day she was bleeding very heavy and was in a lot of pain. she went to the emergency room and they told her she was having a mc and gave her some pills to take and sent her home.
Avatar n tn I have a problem bout everyday bleeding after depotrust shot 4 months ago.I had my shot lat May 15 and from day 1 after that shot I was already bleeding until now.I don't know what to do.I think I am having hormonal imbalance.I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn This caused me to have an induction (which failed I might add) a month early. The day after my son was born I suffered a stroke but my symptoms mimicked those of a leaked epidural more than a stroke so that's what I was treated for. I was released from the hospital 4 days later only to have to be put back in 8 days after that when it was discovered that I had a stroke and that a spinal leak was not causing the headache they had fed me pain pills for for almost 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
Avatar n tn I bled for more than 2 months after my miscarriage. On the 5th week, it stopped but it came back after a few days. I have fibroid and after suffering for more than a month of bleeding, my gyne determined that the fibroid cause the bleeding to continue. I had UFE(Uterine Fibroid Embolization) 3 weeks ago and right after the procedure, I stopped bleeding. My HCG went down so slowly. Only after 2 months then it came down to 0.
Avatar f tn They say if you're going to Hyperstimulate you will do so a few days after retrieval. Well, my bloating, etc....just got worse and worse after retrieval. I really thought they were going to cancel my transfer. Luckily, it didn't get too bad, but progressively kept getting worse AFTER my transfer. It's been a rough week, BUT, yesterday I started feeling better. I've had more IVs and blood this week than everything else combined! I'm still having cramps, but they're definitely mild.
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
14831014 tn?1437914333 I broke up with my boyfriend yesterday due to the fact I was confused about the fact I cheated on him (he doesn't know) and the fact that I'm getting symptoms of my anxiety and depression again and i feel it is best if I went through this by myself without being unnecessarily mean to him and being constantly hot and cold with him. What is happening to me?
Avatar m tn Sorry for your recent miscarriage I do know how devastating it can be I had one in 1992 Time does heal..Personally I waited 6 months my doctor said about 2-3 cycles but I wanted to wait to make sure my uterus and everything was back to normal state (maybe sounds crazy)before trying again. I never knew why the miscarriage happened but I wanted to never go through it again .. So I ate better, waited and took vitamins prior to the next time..
Avatar n tn so give yourself time to heal,and it will happen,alot of people say after a lap it tends to clear tubes,i had lap and dye done after eptopic,right tube had scarring .was in pain for while.but it will pass,good luck in the future.
