How is your blood pressure? If your BP is elevated, you should see your OB immediately to rule out preeclampsia.

I'm 37 & starting to get these severe headache attacks after a recent miscarriage. They happen exactly on the day I ovulate and on the day my period begins (as well as during the first few days of period). Other symptoms are: nausea, dizziness, left-sided facial numbness, anemia from DUB/menorrhagia, spotting/early period (progesterone deficiency). ...

How far along are you? Have your OB tested you for progesterone level? You might be deficient. Natural progesterone creams can help and they are good for pregnancy. Eating yams help raise your progesterone levels too. During pregnancy, your estrogen level is high, if your progesterone doesn't rise with estrogen, your body is in an estrogen dominance...

Midijane, thank you for the reply! It really helped knowing that I'm not the only one struggling with this and feeling like a baby. I'm feeling better today - able to keep down fluid and meds, able to sleep last night after the pain and sensitivities subsided. I am pretty sure that my migraine is hormone-related. I never had any migraine befo...

Never had a migraine before. I've been lying in my dark bedroom since yesterday with severe headache and nausea. Been throwing up quite a few times... Took ibuprofen, tried hot bath and cold compression. Nothing works. It's unbearable now. I'm in tears and don't know what to do. Pls help!!!!

Could be pelvic floor dysfunction too. Just to throw out a thought. Can you ask your GI about anal manometry test? If pelvic floor dysfunction is confirmed, Mayo has an intensive 2-week biofeedback treatment program that seems to be pretty effective.

Either way, if no tissues are seen, you would need serial follow-up hCG test to see the trend. If going up, then you might be pregnant again, and should be able to estimate when sac will be detectable by ultrasound ba...

I had pre-implantation genetic test done for my embryo and it was normal for all 23 chromosome. The only issue I had was elevated NK cells and activities and TNF-a/IFN-g cytokines, as well as MTHFR C677T homozygous mutation which could cause clotting problems. I was treated for both conditions, taking daily Lovenox injections, and weekly intralipid IV i...

My fever broke after two weeks ago & I was dx'd with missed miscarriage last week. Had D&C on 1/8. I'm waiting for placental immunopathology report. My drs suspected fever, bleeding/SCH & mmc all due to abnormally elevated NK cells and activities. So sad that this has happened. I've seen many women running fever, having cold...
