Role of estrogen in pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Role of estrogen in pregnancy


Avatar n tn Migraines are often liked to hormones. Usually the drop in estrogen the female body goes through at the beginning of pregnancy, but these levels should return and go up after breast feeding is stopped. She might be having the opposite effect, honestly anytime your body goes through a hormonal change it is a physical stress to the body which can trigger migraines. She should consult her doctor.
Avatar f tn That was 2 years ago and since then I have had a lot of stress and upset in my life. I have recently started with stabbing pains in my right breast again and for a few months now my joints, especially my lower back have been so painful. I have a new Dr who has read up on my condition tho and has said that there is a link between IGM and joint pain! However, he also thinks I have started early menopause too, so I'm now thinking that my IGM may flare up?
Avatar n tn -Estrogen also contributes to the increase in breast size Another function of estrogen is change in the character of tissue. -There is a change in composition of the blood. -Estrogen, along with the hormone relaxin, relaxes pelvic joints and ligaments, and increases mobility of nipple tissue. In late pregnancy, fibers of the cervix are swollen and loosely connected to each other.
Avatar f tn Yeah, I agree w/ you in terms of the listening to your body thing. Which kind of goes along with Uzzi Reiss' book, to use the estrogen bio indentical's for cyclic symptoms, and then cut back, etc. Blood tests can only tell you so much cause they fluctuate, so it depends on when youre taking them, unfortunately, that "can" be true for other hormonally related illness, like thyroid, etc.
Avatar n tn And if the tumor seems to be hormone receptor negative, would there be no concern anymore about the influence of high estrogen (during pregnancy) on the reccurence of the tumor? Or is that still not enough evidence?
Avatar f tn Last night I went to the bathroom and I had some stretchy,clear-ish stuff but had blood in it.  I had a miscarriage in late May, I started bleeding on the 24 til the first of June.  I spotted a few days after that but not much.  Within the first few days of bleeding I had passed everything.  On the 18 of June I went back to my doctor for blood work and my hormones were at zero, before that I went the 5 of June and they were at 100 something.
Avatar n tn There could be, but I doubt it unless that was the cause of the infertility in the first place. Pregnancy is timing, health of the sperm, egg, etc then properly attaching in the uterus. You can have her up her calories, there was a study that showed male embryos needing a higher caloric intake to thrive and prevent miscarriage. Another is having too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. Progesterone is needed to sustain the pregnancy, low levels indicate impending miscarriage.
Avatar f tn He is a result of our first try, my last pregnancy a result of our second, and this pregnancy is a result of our third. And I probably wouldn't have gotten so lucky if not for the charting. I still get blue thinking about my m/c, but I try to focus on my son and my new little angel, and my husband, who can be a ****, but is great for the most part. Anyway, best of luck. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn They give possible reasons a child might have sensory issues but there is nothing proven. Yes, using drugs during pregnancy is one of the reasons they give. I didn't. In my opinion, who cares about the link. I stopped asking why a long time ago------- and just started focasing on what I needed to do to help my child. And early intervention is really the key to that. Dominosarah brings up a good question and that is if you have had her evaluated by any professionals.
Avatar n tn What do you mean when you say that a positive blood test doesn't mean a successful pregnancy? My blood test came back positve on Aug. 8 with a HCG level of 302 then I had to go back on Aug. 10 and my HCG was 708. I took another one yesterday but my doc hasn't called me back with the results. So, should I still be worried???? mrsstr- Good luck to you and I hope that your bpt come back positive.
Avatar n tn I've done 5 hpts in the last week. I'm totally obsessing too. I'm never late and all of them are false. Called the doctor and he said to wait until after the weekend and if still no period, he'll do a blood test.
Avatar m tn According to a report in Science Daily, a new Canadian study shows that children exposed to high concentrations of manganese in drinking water performed worse on tests of intellectual functioning than children with lower exposures. The results were published in an article in Environmental Health Perspectives.
Avatar n tn Vitamin D from sun exposure also plays a significant role in this equation. Low levels of vitamin D in your blood have long been correlated with higher risk of heart disease and heart attacks.
237300 tn?1231458318 You are not over weight so, your chances of conceiving increase because your body doesn't have too much fat in it, which in the case of us chubbies, estrogen gets irregular... blah blah blah.... now, let me tell you, you are not the only girl who's hubby gets sh*tty with when it comes to TTC... mine used to tell me 'oh get over it! just don't obsess this much!' I just wanted to stab him in the a$$ with a fork!!!!
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape… But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape. A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
328927 tn?1227765440 How often does that happen? I have heard of people being hyper and energetic from day 1 of pregnancy. You never know. . . that could be you. Me, I always have some ailment or another, so these "symptoms" could be psycho-somatic or just hormones. (If so, I really want to find out how to get rid of the heartburn psychologically.) Being in limbo sucks. I'll hang in there if you will! (What choice do we have?
Avatar n tn A dear friend of mine has this issue also, but she is in constant pain, she can feel the pain go down her arm and then her hand swells and a vessel pops and bruises instantly. She's been to every Dr. there is and no one has an answer. If anyone ever does get and actual diagnoses please share.
Avatar f tn Vitamin D also appears to play a role in how estrogen acts in the uterus, particularly in regard to development of the lining. In fact when vitamin D levels are low, your uterus may not develop a lining sufficient enough to hold on to your embryo – which in turn frequently leads to very early stage miscarriage. In fact, vitamin D is now considered such an important fertility nutrient, one group of Yale researchers devoted an entire study to learning what happens when levels decline.
Avatar n tn But there are times, like today, where I just want to sit and cry because of all of the pain. One new addition is this strange vibration in my left leg, where I had the horrible fracture. I kept thinking that my cell phone was near my leg, but it wasn't. This weird sensation is actually going on right now. I just attribute everything to the severity of my injuries and nerve damage. But, should anyone find anything else new about this, please post.
Avatar n tn I am in the same situation. I am cofused b/c I had my first day of my last normal period on April 13, 2005 and I ovulated on April 28 (30 day cycle). On April 27 my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex (normal for us -- together for 4yrs). AF was to come on on the 13 of May and she didnt show. I usually get breast tenderness and swellness really bad a week before AF is to show but this time I did't get anything.
Avatar n tn I still have 1 ovary but if the estrogen has dropped this plays a critical role in the reestablishment of lactic acid producing flora. The good bacteria thrive on an estrogen rich vaginal mucosa. They feed on it and estrogen also lowers the PH of the vagina which good flora thrive in. They good flora also produce and acidic environment which keeps ph low. Bad bacterias can not thrive in low ph.
380530 tn?1239166138 Dee, it's midnight here in TX but I am determined to see your update from down under :) Also, how was your interview? I hope it was a great success. Mary, sorry about that nasty infection. I absolutely hate when I cannot breathe freely. It just ruins your life and sleep. I hope you are on your way to recovery. Heather, Congrats on 3 heart beats! That must be amazing! Lisa, thank you for your empathy. Most of us been there, having to wait for weeks.
1202943 tn?1347844252 I can't believe the number of requests for a good thyroid doctor in that area. Is it something in the water? LOL Sending info by P.M. Just click on your name and then go to messages.
280700 tn?1210287416 Also beware that many of the other side effects of clomid nausea, tender breasts, some cramping are also signs of early pregnancy. Good luck and SSBD to you!
Avatar f tn did u finally end in a baby?ihad 3 embies transfered but my RE says i can never complete with all of them&had to drop 1&c whether 2 remaining will complete or only 1,is this right?
Avatar n tn And I now pray everyday for ladies I have seen there.I do believe in God and in His promises He said He is no respecter of persons what He done for one He'll do for another. But we have to have our faith in Him.I don't have my faith in my doctors I have my faith in that God is using my doctors to make this happen.We struggled with the choice to use fertility treatment or not and we finally agreed that it was o.k. I have learned that faith without works is dead.
Avatar n tn I also find that I love the smell of fresh cut wood, such as you would find in the lumber isle of Home Depot, etc. I have even stopped at Home Depot just to walk through the lumber isle and smell the wood, all the while salivating!! I also want to eat the wood, and I try to think of ways that I can do this without harming myself. I sit and daydream of eating sawdust that is soaked with gasoline!! I have told my son and my husband this, and they seem very concerned.
Avatar n tn I figured why not lose some of the 60 extra pounds I was carrying in the meantime. as I became more aware of my body and health, I realized that my digestion, pms, exzema and fatigue were also completely related to my diet. I found out that I did have candida (mentioned above) and had to bite the bullet and finally become healthy. My sweet tooth and habit of eating starches and enjoying moderate alchohol with my friends had to go.
Avatar f tn Eat well. Pregnancy-related hair loss can be a symptom of a diet deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients. Make sure that you are eating a well-balanced diet, with plenty fruits and vegetables, and taking any vitamin supplements your doctor has prescribed. Avoid frequent hair washings, and refrain from over-styling your hair. You may even want to consider a short style until at least 6 months postpartum, when estrogen levels return to normal and hair loss is minimized.
