What can happen if a pregnancy is un- or misdiagnosed?

If your New York doctor fails to abide by the standards the medical community demands of a professional in his or her role, your health may suffer. However, if your doctor fails to diagnose your pregnancy, or if he or she misdiagnoses your complicated pregnancy, you are not the only person whose health will suffer. So too will your baby's. Birth Injury Guide explores the very real dangers of an undiagnosed or misdiagnosed pregnancy for both mom and baby.

Failure to diagnose a pregnancy may occur for any number of reasons, including failure to adequately read test results, failure to diagnose common and not-so-common pregnancy symptoms and failure to follow up on test results. Regardless of the reason, any of these failings can result in dangerous or life-threatening consequences for both you and baby. Pregnancy is a delicate time in any woman's life, which is why the healthcare field requires expectant mothers to undergo constant monitoring during all three trimesters.

If your doctor misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose a complicated pregnancy, the risk is even greater. Complicated pregnancies such as molar pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy can result in organ damage, infertility, ruptured fallopian tubes, life-threatening low blood pressure, shock or even death. Other complications that can stem from both un- and misdiagnosed pregnancies include the following:

  •       Baby born with preventable defects
  •       Permanent organ damage
  •       Birth injuries to the fetus
  •       Miscarriage
  •       Termination of an otherwise viable pregnancy

If you have symptoms that indicate pregnancy, contact your doctor as soon as possible. If your doctor fails to perform standard tests or does not follow up with you, seek a second opinion. If you suspect that something is amiss with your pregnancy but your doctor refuses to acknowledge your concerns, do the same. Your actions may mean the difference between a healthy, full-term pregnancy or dire consequences.
