Anyone been pg and suffered from vv episodes?? I just recently found out Im pg (after 4 years trying and 2 IVFs)....and suffered a pretty bad vv episode last night and it has me scared. I usually only have the middle of the night episodes shortly after ovulation and a few days before my period. But Im guessing if men have this reaction too then those cant be the only causes of an episode. I have never been officially diagnosed but Im positive I have VV syndrome. I have had 2 episodes following gynecological procedures, 1 every 6 months or so in the middle of the night (diarrhea and low bp), and quite a few blackouts when I was younger.....Does anyone know what triggers these episodes.....Im scared I wont be able to carry this baby!!!!

Thanks Rose
