Question: I am 8 weeks pregnant an have a hemorrhage above and to the side of the fetus, what can cause the bleed and will i miscarry? N.Y. (New Zealand)
Answer: A bleed within the womb cavity in early pregnancy is not rare. Sometimes this is revealed and in some cases it is concealed. It is simply impossible to establish why this happens. When the bleeding is revealed it is simply managed as a case of threatened miscarriage. When it is incidental finding on a routine scan, it will be documented as a retroplacental haemorrhage but no attempt is made to explain why it happened because that cannot be answered. The majority of these cases resolve spontaneously and the pregnancy carries on as normal. Any case of threatened miscarriage in the first trimester has a roughly 1 in 10 chance of ending in a pregnancy loss. That’s a 90% chance that it will be OK.

Question: I am a nurse working in an obstetric unit and see the suffering that babies go through whose moms had been on methadone during their pregnancy. Many of these babies have to be hospitalized for weeks and given morphine in order to decrease their withdrawal symptoms and keep them from having seizures.
Are there any clinics that encourage or require them to be on birth control (if they're not already pregnant) while they are on methadone? J.B. (USA)
