I am a specialist in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and I really enjoy helping people with fertility problems through HealthTap! I am a HealthTap Founding Expert and Scholar and have provided online patient care since 2012. If you have questions about female or male infertility, assisted reproduction, or anything else in reproductive medicine or surgery I'd be thrilled to help you online. I've answered literally thousands of questions on HealthTap that are immediately available to you, and I'm really exited about online consultation either through video chat or inbox messages! I welcome your questions any time. A bit about my background: I wrote the popular book Overcoming Infertility: A Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant, published by Addicus Books in 2010. I've contributed chapters to several other books on reproductive medicine and gynecology, and I've authored over 30 scientific publications. I earned my M.D. degree in 1992 and residency in 1996 at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. I finished my fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1998, and was an Assistant Professor from 1998 to 2000. I also have a Ph.D. degree from Duke University (1986) and am board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and by the American Board of Physicians and Surgeons.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 18-year-old female asked:
Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 29 years experience
No: It is not possible to have gotten pregnant 9-10 days before a normal period, you can only get pregnant in the first 10-14 days after a period.
A 37-year-old female asked:
Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 29 years experience
Likely impossible: If you were pregnant yesterday morning and had a surgical termination, it's impossible to have gotten pregnant again last night. Usually following surgical termination you are advised to NOT have intercourse or put anything in the vagina for a period (it varies) of time afterwards, to avoid risk of infection. Good wishes.

Had a Pap?: If you've had a Pap smear done before, you'll find the IUI is nearly exactly the same. If not, you can expect some discomfort - most describe it as dull pressure - from the speculum. It should never be a "sharp" pain. If you've never had a pelvic exam before, make certain the person doing the IUI know that. Good wishes.
