QUESTION

Dear Experts,
My husband and I recently suffered a pregnancy loss at 19 weeks. I am looking for support groups in the area. I have been unsuccessful in locating someplace to assist in dealing with this. Also, when do you know you are ready to try again for a healthy baby?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Aimee

Psychiatric Medication during Pregnancy

I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder 7 years ago. It usually manifests itself as extreme irritablility and depression (only 4 severe manic episodes ever). I have been on a class C medication ever since my diagnosis, which elimitates all of my symptoms unless I am under high levels of stess or sleep deprivation...

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
My period has been late for about 9 days now. Actually my period has been irregular ever since I got married (late November last year). But 9 days late is considered a record for me. Since this year, at most my period has been late is 5 days. I did take a pregnancy test (ClearBlue brand) on a day ago (in the morning) and it came out negative. Unsatisfied, I went to the doctor whom took a urine test (which looks rather 'cheap' compared to the one I'd used). It came out negative.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I had my tubes untied in September 2003 and I have still not gotten pregnant. I am 32, I have two children 10 and 12 had no problem getting pregnant with them. My husband had a sperm count, number good. I had the test to make sure tubes were open, both are open. We generally have sex on average 4 to 5 times per week. No luck. Any suggestions?

Please help, I am getting older fast.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,I am a 35-year-old white female with 3 successful pregnancies. My first was born when I was 21. They are 5-15 years old. I am now married again and my new husband has no children and wants one of his own desperately. I am healthy, but I am obese at approximately 185 pounds and 5'4". I do not have regular periods....they are from 28-40 days, so we can't tell when I ovulate. We make love almost on a daily basis.
