Avatar n tn I am 36 and had a massive stroke 2yrs ago (18mos after the birth of my daughter)....most likely caused by birth control pills...luckily, my neurointerventionalist was able to use the MERCI retrieval system and I have made a total recovery, I was only in the hospital 6 days! ANyway, now I have to take Plavix, and I'm considering getting pregnant again. It is scary b/c none of my doctors want to tell me "yes" or "no", they say it's up to me!!
Avatar f tn I had a stroke a few years ago and I am considering having a baby. I have heard that because if my stroke i will have to have a c section. Does anyone know if this is true?
Avatar f tn I want to know if anyone has gotten pregnant after a stroke and how it went for you? Oh and after my stroke all I think about most of the time is of the stroke, having another stroke, or dying due to a stroke. I guess I am traumatized now. Does anyone else suffer from this?

I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE. I am having mental exhaustion,confusion and altered mental state with many others symptoms to many to state.
1157646 tn?1343967128 The rest of the day went as usual, until a phone call at 10pm. Grandad was rushed to hospital. He had a stroke (Which eventually killed him approx 6 weeks later). In the current day, 2 years on from that first stroke, 2 years on from the last time I had a proper conversation with my grandfather I still continue to remember and love the good times, the stories and the many times he told me to turn the music down while I was driving.
Avatar n tn re risk is definitely higher....I had a stroke 2 weeks after having a baby (when I was 29) and doctors are still giving me different views....they say I should be fine, but no one knows for sure.
Avatar f tn Well here is my story and update. I am now 13 weeks and come to find out the first healthy pregnancy after a cryo-ablation. My Dr.'s are suprised. About 2 years ago I had 4 miscarriages. Due to the bleeding I had a cryo-ablation (freezing of the lining). I was told that I still had a slight chance to get pregnant. I was also told of the risk of loosing the baby. Well it's been 13 weeks and the baby is growing. My Dr.

Avatar f tn Is there a medication or treatment for migranes with stroke symtoms, numbness, speech slurring and dizziness for someone who had a stroke. I am having neck and back therapy to relieve tightness but that is about it. I am seeing a nearolgist and internist but so for no luck and the headaches won't go away. Cat scans do not reveal any new strokes. Headaches are getting worse and I am getting fatigued from having to fight the symtoms all day.

598319 tn?1282102140 I hope I actually keep up with this little journal to chronicle the early life and times of the little nugget growing inside me. Today is Tuesday, September 30 and we got our true-blue positive home pregnancy test! Yesterday we tested and the line was so faint neither of us knew what to think about it... but today there is no denying! We are both in absolute shock.
Avatar n tn Migraines can be difficult to treat after a stroke. The fact that you still suffer from headaches is still a bad picture. I had a major stroke 5 years ago and still suffer from headaches with some severe migraines. If you're having headaches at least 14 days a month, then you would qualify for Botox injections which gave me amazing relief from my 24/7 severe migraines. How long do your nerve block injections work?

Avatar n tn When having a baby after a stroke midwives will watch you very closely. Neither them nor you will let it get bad again. I had a stroke after having a baby. I had an epidural and it went wrong so I had to have a blood patch (your own blood is put into your spine to clot and block a puncture hole). It all went wrong and three clots formulated in my brain. When I told the Doctors that I had started to have a severe headache the didn't listen and sent me home.
