  • 1My 1st born child was diagnosed with ASD, if i'll have another baby, will he have the same condition?

    My 3 1/2 yrs. old son was diagnosed with ASD-highly functional type. My husband &I, (before he was diagnosed) was planning to have another child so it won't be too lonely for him to be an only child. We've been trying for more than a year, but i didn't get pregnant. I still want to have another child even after the bad news we got about my son's condition 4 months ago. My husband on the other hand, changed his mind totally. He's scared (now, I am too) and worried that if we'll have another one, it'll have the same condition or worst. Is, this possible? The doctors here in the Philippines can't really tell us the cause of my son's condition. I gathered from my research that there are too many possible causes to become autistic. But, my husband seemed to think it's genetic (w/ my son's symptoms &our research about this challenge, he figured out that he is ASD-highly functional type too). What are the odds?

  • 4Over a year since our baby was born and my wife is still totally uninterested in sex. Is that normal?

    My wife gave birth to our first child and only about 15 months. Our baby is healthy and well , and my wife is physically healthy . But your sex since before the baby was born has been reduced to zero . We both work , and both are busy . And I know that motherhood has meant a much higher burden to my wife . But she always comes home and tells me that, compared with other women She Talks To, who is grateful for the amount of aid they give to the baby and the house . We talked about the problem . It does not really fit the symptoms of postpartum depression . Since the birth of our baby , I've had a vasectomy , so no fear of another pregnancy ( we both agreed we do not want ) . She recognizes that her sex drive is gone , and she feels bad about the effect it has on our relationship . But she does not want to force something that does not really feel inside, and I do not want that . What are the possible medical or psychological causes of this problem ?

  • 12How soon can a child be diagnosed with autism?

    My son was 2 in September and has not said a word yet, but do not make noises. Although hes very loving and happy does show some signs of autism. Hes being monitored now, but when I ask people what is bad nobody can tell me which is very annoying since I'm thinking the worst all the time. Hes not at the level of another 2 years of age in terms of communication and the next instruction, but reacts to our facial expressions and always laughs when they were being silly . His eye contact has improved a lot and is best played with his toys. He does not usually enter their own world and is sometimes abit hyper . Hes not stupid and even though he knows he can get away with ! Can you improve or may worsen symptoms as it grows ? Im getting so frustrated as all proffesionals tell me that I can not say anything .
