Re: pregnant & have suffered v v 19 years with menstruation

I fainted after having an amnio but went on to have a healthy child thru a vaginal delivery. I recently had a scary experience fainting while having a rough eye exam (see previous post). I think that it is not uncommon for this to happen when people have medical procedures or invasive examinations. I have never heard of it being a problem for childbirth. Good luck to you!

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
