There's : There's a name for people who rely on "pulling out" to prevent pregnancy: "parents." that technique is extremely unreliable. Yes, you could certainly be pregnant. It's also possible that you could be experiencing a complication related to the pregnancy itself. Six weeks is a long time delay for infections or other directly related problems, but if a pregnancy test is negative and you continue to have problems, you should see your obstetrician.

Agree : Agree with the earlier response. Unprotected sexual intercourse puts you at risk for pregnancy, whether the male pulls out his penis prior to ejaculation or not.

Ulnar neuropathy: You have likely heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a compression and irritation of the median nerve in the wrist. Ulnar tunnel syndrome, which it sounds like you may have, is a compression of the ulnar nerve in elbow. This nerve supplies the ring finger and pinky fingers. If it is compressed and irritated it can produce tingling and pain in those fingers. It is more common in pregnancy.

No meds: Medications have not been proven successful at this age and pediatricians do not recommend any over the counter cough and cold medicines for kids under 6 years. For babies of this age a nasal aspirator can help remove the thick mucus in their noses- the blue bulb syringe can do the same. Humidification may also help. Most importantly keep them hydrated- increase the frequency of breastfeeding.

Fungal infection: Chronic sinus infection is usually due to mold - try antifungal cream and neosporin oint to nostrils twice daily and orally supplement garlic which kills infections - it will take 4-6 weeks to clear fungal infection. Once healthy take iodine daily will prevent infections.
