High risk pregnancy
Recurrent abortion: Patients with multiple abortions are investigated thoroughly, including blood test, hysterosalpingography , and husband’s semen analysis. Corrections of uterine defects are done hysteroscopically. Further, with special injections and medications, many couples with history of many abortions, even upto 8 in number have carried their pregnancies upto term.
The main concern is that patients get apprehensive about taking many medications. It is absolutely necessary to take many medications when the number of abortions she has undergone are high.
Intrauterine growth retardation: With constan ultrasound monitoring and good administration of medications, most women with intrauterine growth retardation could be managed effectively without having to admit them for long periods in the hospital. They could go home with babies with reasonable weight, without prolonged ICU care.
