  • Hyperthyroid and pregnancy?

    The best thing you can do is go to your OB and have them test your thyroid right away. There are medications to treat hyperthyroidism while pregnant. If left untreated, maternal hyperthyroidism poses a risk for both mother and baby. Pregnant women with uncontrolled hyperthyroidism can develop high blood pressure. There is also an increased risk of miscarriage, premature birth, and having a baby with a low birth weight. READ MORE

  • Can a baby move at 3 months?

    It is very rare to feel a baby move at 3 months but it is possible. First time mothers usually feel the baby kick around 5 months or the 20 week mark. While women who are having their second+ child can feel kicking as soon as 4 months or 16 weeks. READ MORE

  • Which is the best day to conceive a baby boy after your period?

    While some believe in the timing of intercourse, and other factors, like sexual position and the pH of body fluids, to determine what might have an effect on which sperm reach the egg first, we believe that the true odds are still 50/50. Some patients do test their embryos if they have gone through IVF or INVOcell. The PGT-A test will tell you the gender of the embryo as well as if your embryos are chromosomally normal. READ MORE

  • Are painful periods normal?

    Menstruation occurs when the uterus sheds its lining once a month. Some pain, cramping, and discomfort during menstrual periods is normal. It’s not always possible to identify the cause of painful menstrual periods. Some people are just at a higher risk of having painful periods. Painful menstrual periods can also be the result of an underlying medical condition, such as: Endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, fibroids in the uterus, pelvic inflammatory disease, adenomyosis, or cervical stenosis. The best thing to do is go to your primary gynecologist and talk to them about your pain. They can narrow down what is happening with your periods. READ MORE

  • Foul-smelling vaginal discharge?

    When urine smells and is cloudy, that usually is a sign that you may have a urinary tract infection. You will want to see your gynecologist to have a urine test done. They can also test your urine to make sure it isn’t a kidney stone or Kidney infection as well. Then they can prescribe you the best medication to help the cloudiness and smell. READ MORE

  • Why are their lumps in my vaginal area?

    Usually these lumps that form are Pediatric Vulvar Cysts. The vulva is the external portion of the female genitalia/sex organs. If you have a cyst, growth, rash, or other abnormalities on or around the vulva, you should see a gynecologist for an examination. Inform a parent and have them make the appointment for you. READ MORE

  • When do you get your period after a miscarriage?

    It usually takes 4 to 6 weeks for your period to return after a miscarriage, although it can take longer to settle into a regular cycle. The length of time it takes will depend on how regular your periods were before your pregnancy. The exact timing can vary by several weeks also depending on when your hCG levels return to zero. Your body will still think it's pregnant until your hCG levels are gone. READ MORE

  • How long does it take to walk normal after a c-section?

    After a C-section, you will probably have to stay in the hospital for three days and, even when you’re released, you’ll need to take it easy. For most moms, it will take four to six weeks to make a full recovery. 4 to 6 weeks later, your pain should be minimal, if not completely gone, so it’s likely you’ll be able to ease into doing more strenuous activities. READ MORE

  • What week in pregnancy do you start producing milk?

    Many moms experience the discharge of colostrum as early as halfway through the pregnancy, about 18-20 weeks or midway into the second trimester. Your breasts may feel full or engorged but your milk won’t let down and there shouldn’t be a need to pump yet. If this doesn’t happen, it doesn’t mean that your milk production isn’t beginning inside your body and there is nothing to be worried about. READ MORE

  • How do I figure out when I am ovulating?

    With a normal menstrual cycle, ovulation usually occurs around 10 to 16 days before your period starts, so you may be able to work out when you're likely to ovulate. Paying close attention to your body can also provide helpful information regarding your ovulation. Examining your cervical mucus can give information regarding ovulation. Before ovulation, your cervical mucus may be dry or sticky. Closer to ovulation, it may take on a creamier consistency. Right before ovulation, your cervical mucus may take on a slippery consistency, similar to a raw egg white. Your  basal body temperature (BBT)  can also tell you when ovulation is approaching. A special BBT thermometer can be used to measure your temperature to the tenth degree. An increase of about 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit higher than your normal temperature can indicate ovulation. There are also secondary signs of ovulation, which may not be present in all women in a consistent manner. These include: Slight spotting Abdominal pain Breast tenderness Bloating Increased sex drive If you’ve been charting your basal body temperature and tracking ovulation, but you still haven’t gotten pregnant, it may be time to see a specialist. Current medical guidelines suggest you should consult a fertility doctor if: You’re a woman under the age of 35 who has been trying to conceive for one year with well-timed intercourse. You’re a woman over the age of 35 who has been trying for six months without success. READ MORE

Get to know Fertility Specialist Dr. Robin L. Poe-Zeigler, who serves patients in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Dr. Poe-Zeigler’s medical story is one that is driven by love, passion, and a constant desire to spread hope. In 1982, she lost her mother to breast cancer- a loss that would shape her medical career forever. She started medical school with a focus on gynecologic cancer, trying to help women who suffered the same way her mother did, but as she progressed through school, she realized that this course caused her to frequently relive the loss of her mother. So, instead of focusing on cancer and potential death, Dr. Poe-Zeigler changed directions to focus on infertility and potential life. To this day, this still brings joy and great meaning to her life.

After finishing medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School and her 4 year residency at the York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania, Dr. Poe-Zeigler was awarded a fellowship at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia. Four years later, she opened The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine “on a wing and a prayer.”

Since the practice’s opening in 1997, Dr. Poe-Zeigler has helped bring over 3,000 babies to loving families all across the world. In the almost 20 years that New Hope has been open, Dr. Robin and the New Hope team have perfected a unique, personal and boutique style fertility center, where patients are family. While clinical excellence and success mark her professional career, it is her hugs and compassionate style of care that have become Dr. Poe-Zeigler’s trademark.

Dr. Poe-Zeigler is also affiliated with several hospitals in the area, including Sentara Leigh Hospital and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Dr. Poe-Zeigler is board-certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology, as well as Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The ABOG is a non-profit organization that board certifies obstetricians and gynecologists (OB GYNS) and offers continuing certification to OB GYNS in the United States and Canada. Their mission is to define specialty standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge, practice, and professionalism in women’s health.

Dr. Poe-Zeigler is a Fellow of The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG). Founded in 1951, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is the specialty’s premier professional membership organization dedicated to the improvement of women’s health.

An OB-GYN, or obstetrician-gynecologist, is a doctor who specializes in women’s health. A fertility specialist is a reproductive endocrinologist – a physician who practices a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology called reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI). REI is an area of medicine that addresses hormonal functioning as it pertains to reproduction and infertility in both women and men. As an OB-GYN & Fertility Specialist, Dr. Poe Zeigler’s clinical interests include cervical disease, abdominal surgery, adolescent gynecology, fertility, gynecologic surgery, menstrual disorders, ovarian problems, hormone therapy, and many more.
