A Cure for my problem... but not in the US!!!

**UPDATE************************************************

I asked my cardiologist about the treatment > Viagra to treat placenta insufficiency < as I find him to very open and trustworthy.

"Yes,  but not in the US because of FDA regulations. Though it has been vetted in other countries, it has not been done here." He said he has had women on it because they were on it before to treat heart problems. No side affects or harm to the child.

So ladies, if your doctor tells you that you have placental insufficiency or fetal growth retardation, instead of giving birth crazy early or risking a stillbirth we now know that this really is an option. You may just have to be clever about it.

**********************************************************

I recently fuund out that half of my placenta isnt performing properly and asked the doc what to do. He said nothing, as in there is nothing I can do, He didnt even tell me that I have placental insufficiency.

I go and do some quick research and find some tips, whih is great news, Do a little more research... turns out there is a cure! Just not in the US!! How devastating. And its so easy. To increase bloodflow you just take 50 mg of viagra everyday (national center for biotechnology information retains studies and documentation for you to read online).

Canada, UK, Australia, Tehran.... Your baby will increase growth by 50%! Now, I feel like I am failing my child because I have a possible answer,  but no way to get to it because I am in my doctors hands.

This is a horrible feeling.

I would take the info to your doctor, and tell him you want to try it.  See what he says.

I think a 2nd opinion and taking the info to your doctor is the best advice.

Second opinion is a good idea after you take the information to your doctor. As someone who is heavily educated in the medical community be cautious about things you read online, etc. You can find anything you are looking for from Dr. google. I hope and pray that something comes of this and you will get answers from your medical team.

Has your doctor read this information yet? I hope you find something that will work

I didnt bring it up to my OB and thought it was best to discuss to the perinatologist.

The informationi I found was on tommmys.org and ncbi.gov. You can find information about the human trail runs they completed in Canada and Iran on both websites. I would suggest anyone look it up, though reading through case studies can be very boring.  :-)

On a good note, my OB said even if my right side completely shut down, that there would be enough blood to support him. He stated the only issue would be after 32 weeks when they look to start labor, Of course, my perinatologist said nothing to that effect before so I will quiz the hell out of him now.

 *hugs*  Have you thought about seeking another doctor?

 The OB we have now was the 4th one we interviewed and I am truly exhausted. He is ok for now. If I start to see something that causes concern I will try to see if I can find docs aware of this discovery.

There are 2 perinatologists we see at the same center. I would like to mention this to the main one first when I go to see him in 2 weeks.

That is very interesting. I would def talk to your perinatologist about it. How far along are you?
