I am 4 weeks pregnant at the moment and have taken 75mg aspirin after recurrent miscarriages previously. I managed to carry successfully a pregnancy to term using aspirin on this dose up until I was 37 weeks. Do I take it for my current pregnancy or risk another miscarriage please?

I had an induced miscarriage at 13 weeks with misoprostal

Hello, I had an induced miscarriage at 13 weeks with misoprostal and passed the fetus within 24 hours, light bleeding following a week after. At my 1 week check up, the doctor did a sonogram and said there was a piece of tissue left behind and gave me more misoprostal. Upon taking the medication again, I bleed heavily and ended up hospitalized, the did more scans and sonograms, put me on another medication to help expell whatever tissue but this medication helped with clotting as well, I stopped bleeding about 5 days later and went 8 weeks with no bleeding, however brown colored discharge at times. I started bleeding red blood 16 days ago and it still continues. I thought this was my first period as I had cramping the first week, however I feel like it will never stop. Is this normal? I am on the birth control pill estarylla.JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: YesJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I'm anemic, I take iron pills daily

A person has been pregnant 10 weeks through IVF (her egg).

A person has been pregnant 10 weeks through IVF (her egg). She has significant number of antibodies (thyroid type) and also has thin uterine lining which was 4.5 mm. First question - if one did not have a miscarriage in the first 10 weeks due to antibodies -- is this person over the hump now (in other words how soon into the pregnanacy the miscarriage occurs due to antibodies)? Same for thin uterine lining -- is the person over the hump after 10 weeks to have a miscarriage due to thin lining?

Two days ago I was about 15dpo (last period began May 2) and

Hi, Two days ago I was about 15dpo (last period began May 2) and I got a faint second line on a "6 days sooner" First Response urine test. I got a "Pregnant" on a digital ClearBlue test. Yesterday, I went for hcg and it was at 23 and progesterone was 2.94. Today the digital says "Not Pregnant" and I'm having a little brown discharge when I wipe after peeing. Does this mean I'm miscarrying? Is there anything I can do? Also, less than a year ago I had a miscarriage after 8 weeks and a d&c was botched and I got septic shock and they had to remove one ovary and tube. I then had cervixal stenosis and had treatment. Am I at risk or do I have symptoms of ectopic pregnancy?

My husband and I are trying to conceive. I am 34 years old

My husband and I are trying to conceive. I am 34 years old and it will end our first pregnancy. I've never been pregnant before. We've been trying for 3 months. During this cycle we had sex on day 10, 12, 14, 16, 17. I have charted in the past but DID NOT for this cycle to give my mind a rest from the stress of hitting the perfect day. My cycles are usually 29 days long. I usually ovulate around day 13-16 and I've only had one cycle in the past three where I have experienced spotting 2 days before my period. I usually have one to two heavy days of red blood followed by 3-4 lighter days. So my period is 5-7 days in length. For this cycle that I am referring to, I started brown spotting on and off on day 26. This continued until day 28. On day 29, the blood was still brown but a TAD heavier in volume. On day 30, I would say the flow was medium--but the blood was dark brown and at times looked black. I had some definite thicker discharge that looked like clots that were dark brownish, resembling tar. I am currently on day 31 and still experiencing this bleeding. It is lighter than I think was yesterday, but still having those clots. I had one or two spots of more red blood but then it's back to dark brown. This has never happened before. When I have brown blood, it's at the end of my cycle NOT at the beginning. I am wondering if I had an early miscarriage?? Or is this old blood that did not or expel from my body last cycle? I'm confused?? Should I be worried?
