    Infertility with One Ovary?

    I had an ovary removed when I was still a child due to a benign tumor that was constricting blood flow and causing extreme pain. I was very young, but continued to see a gynecologist for the years to come ensuring appropriate sexual development. I had multiple procedures when I was 10/11 to inhibit the coming of my period (delayed it by two years) and I got it again when I was 13. Since that period, it has been consistent and I never missed a single month & it did not change the timing it came....

    Accuracy of genetic testing

    I was surpised to find out that I became pregnant 5 days after my 40th birthday. I was also surprised to find out that my initial ultrasound showed a possible set of twins. Due to being in the "high risk" category, I chose to obtain gc testing to rule out any possibilities, all testing was conducted via Kaiser. My first ultrasound with my OB displayed only one baby. My NIPT test came back 93% positive for T21 (down syndrome). I followed up with an NT exam in which bay showed no soft markers....

    Post vasectomy pregnancy?

    I am curious about possibly being pregnant. I haven't taken a test yet, but if I've timed my period correctly, I'm 2 days late, and its normally like clockwork. I've been having heartburn, bleeding gums, super sensitive, tender nipples/breasts, more emotional than normal, changes in appetite. A few other symptoms, but they're not as constant. I've had other children who are older and I'm in my early 40s. My SI had a vasectomy a couple of years ago, but I know that's....

    Should I opt for post natal care services?

    Hi, I am a female (35, Caucasian) and I just gave birth to two lovely twins last week. I had to move to India with my husband last year, and I have been exploring a few mother care/baby care services here. I am really worried about my newborns' needs, and my husband has to go to work except on the weekends. My in-laws too are based out of another city, and I think these post-natal services should be of help to me. So what are your thoughts on such services with post-natal care programs? I am....

    A little scared

    So I am going to be 40 in January, and my husband and I are talking about starting a family. We are both healthy, but I am a little scared.
