Question: I had had several miscarriages wen i fell for my 27 year old son now i bleed a lot and was on a lot bed rest etc they started o off on 3 hormone injections weekly even though i threatened to miscarry i had a successful preg. The same thing happened with my daughter who is now 22 and again had hormone injections weekly BUT i heard that if you have these injections and it's a girl it's possible that she wont be able to have any children herself. My daughter has never used any conception and has never fallen preg. Is this the reason why? J.T. (UK)

Question: If the fetus is dead in the womb and there is no signs of miscarriage is it still we will have a positive urine pregnancy test? B.J. (UK)
Answer: Yes indeed. The urine pregnancy test works by detecting the pregnancy hormone called beta-hCG. This hormone is produced in the placenta. Cells of the placenta can remain functional for a long time after the fetus has died and, as such, will continue to produce the hormone albeit in steadily decreasing quantities. As it is, modern pregnancy tests are very sensitive and they will detect quite low levels of the hormone in the urine. The test can therefore continue to be positive for weeks after the fetal demise.
