As: As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 to 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor or a planned parenthood in your area and they can test you even earlier. Other than taking a pregnancy test, there's no way to know whether you are pregnant or not. It is always better to be safe than sorry and to know sooner rather than later. Whether you are pregnant or not, if you are having sex and do not want to be a parent yet, you should talk to a healthcare provider about birth control. In the meantime, you need to use condoms every time you have sex. "pulling out" is not an effective method since there are sperm released before your boyfriend has an orgams which can get you pregnant.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Hi, Eleven days ago, I had my frozen egg transferred. I am forty and have a 12 year old son. I have no symptom of pregnancy. I am getting anxious.

Relax. Enjoy life.: There is no question here. In general, we prefer parents and potential parents to not be anxious, but rather to be calm and relaxed. One can just do a home pregnancy test 2 weeks after embryo transfer. That should be enough time for an embryo to implant and make bHCG. Meanwhile, one should not think about babies, embryos, nor pregnancies... but just do other things and enjoy daily life.

I: I am sorry that you are going through all of that. That is a wide variety of symptoms. The best advice would be to seek out a low cost or no cost clinic in your area. The best start may be to start at planned parenthood who could evaluate your abnormal periods and discharge, and could refer you to another low cost or no cost provider for assessment of your other symptoms. There are providers who will help you so please be sure to start calling to be seen.

19 year old girl; fainted today for the first time. Could it be pregnancy symptom?

19 year old girl; fainted today for the first time. Could it be pregnancy symptom?

Yes, but....: ...There are many other possible explanations. Is the fainting episode a true "faint" or dizziness or some other symptom? Other reasons may include low blood sugar, dehydration, medications/drugs/toxins, hyperventilation, abnormal cardiac rhythms (an ekg is imperative), and the common "vasovagal faint" or cardogenic syncope, which is usually diagnosed if the workup is otherwise negative.

Hello.: Hello. I don't know if you are pregnant or not. However, normally classic type pregnancy symptoms (i.e., nausea, frequent urination, fatigue, breast swelling and tenderness etc) do not occur until the time that you have actually missed your period. You could have mild cramping with spotting at time of implantation. Sometimes, even if you are pregnant, the HCG levels could still be too low to trigger a positive on the urine pregnancy test. If that were the case, repeating the urine pregnancy test a week after the first one, may be beneficial.

Wait 4 blood result: Home pregnancy tests are quite good...But not 100%...Even blood test is not 100%. So, wait for the result and go from there....If it is negative, your doc may do more test such as an ultrasound etc... If it is positive...Congrats.

Evaluation: If the pregnancy tests are negative and you have no symptoms of pregnancy, you are probably not pregnant. There are a lot of things that can make you miss periods. Evaluation with a full history, an exam and appropriate testing are needed to know what is going on in your case. Hope this helps.

44 years old. Trying to get pregnant. Could symptoms I'm having be pregnancy or premenopausal?

44 years old. Trying to get pregnant. Could symptoms I'm having be pregnancy or premenopausal?

No description: You didn't give any symptoms for us to evaluate, but many early pregnancy symptoms and the symptoms of irregular menses in the premenopause are the same. At 44, I would see your GYN before conceiving to talk about some risks and of course you need to be taking a prenatal vitamin before you conceive.

Is it possible for a 15 year old to develop symptoms of als?

Is it possible for a 15 year old to develop symptoms of als?

Very unlikely: Why is this a concern? What symptoms cause this consideration? See a pediatrician, get evaluated for whatever ails the adolescent, and get it stabilized. Would be very unique to see ALS at age 15!!

My healthy but very underweight 15-year-old son has recently been looking somewhat bowlegged. If he has no symptoms, does this need to be repaired?

Not necessarily: Not necessarily repaired but he should be seen by a physician and checked for nutritional deficiencies as there are some that can cause this.

I think I am add. Could I be without being ADHD too? What are al the symptoms of add? (i'm a 15 year old girl.)

ADHD: Inattention, impulsivity & hyperactivity. In school, you daydream a lot, fail to finish tasks, and are absent-minded. When u have chores, u end up with multiple unfinished chores, get frustrated easily &act before thinking.

Hi, I'm 16 years old and I'm afraid I might be pregnant. I've had a bunch of symptoms but I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative?

Timing of test: If you do your pregnancy test too early in your cycle it might still be negative, you might need to wait 1-2 weeks. If you have symptoms, you might want to see your doctor for advice.

My 15 year old daughter has a swollen axillary node that swells after shaving. It's very tender. It went way down and then came back. No other symptom?

My 15 year old daughter has a swollen axillary node that swells after shaving. It's very tender. It went way down and then came back. No other symptom?

Trauma: Probably a reaction to trauma induced by shaving her armpit.Warm compresses may help, but not shaving, unfortunately is the answer.

2 days late with period, took pregnancy test turned out negative. No symptoms, 16 years old?

2 days late with period, took pregnancy test turned out negative. No symptoms, 16 years old?

Can be wrong: The urine pregnancy test depends on the quantity of chemicals released by the new conception/embryo into the body that make it to the urine. An early morning specimen is more concentrated & more likely to be accurate, but it can take a while to test positive. At 16 you may just skip a cycle occasionally.

My 15 year old faughter has been having pretty heavy chest congestion for 5 days. She's coughing a lot. She had no other symptoms. No fever either.

My 15 year old faughter has been having pretty heavy chest congestion for 5 days. She's coughing a lot. She had no other symptoms. No fever either.

Continue to monitor: Symptoms less than a week without other problems. The lungs make mucous to wrap around the irritant or infection to help it come out with cough. Drink lots of water-vaporizer at night. If not improved by a week or worsening symptoms especially late onset fever see an MD. Http://www. Webmd.
