Unprotected sex on period took next choice 4 days after. Cramping several days after now heavy bleeding 18 days before period. Pregnant? Miscarriage?

Maybe: Next choice and Plan B work best if taken within 24 hours. Waiting 4 days in general is not advisable. And of course using a condom is even a better idea. It could be breakthrough bleeding from the use of Next Choice as well. ...Read more

Cramping 3 weeks after ovulation. 5 weeks after LMP. started LIGHTER bleeding a week before EXPECTED period which was the 1st. Now I'm cramping. Preg?

Maybe. Maybe not.: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Heavy discharge 2 days before period is due, had intercourse before & after ovulation time. Am i Pregnant?

Take a test...: If you miss your period, take a pregnancy test. It is the only way to know - guessing based on vaginal discharge is speculative. If the test is negative, and you still haven't gotten your period in a week retest. I would also advise that you make an appointment to see your gyn to have the vaginal discharge tested and rule out STD. ...Read more

First period jan 15th after mmiscarriage. Still no period, took pregnancy test about 2 weeks ago negative. Isit possible to still get pregnant?Normal?

Possible, not likely: After having a miscarriage your periods may take some time to return to normal. It is possible to ovulate and get pregnant even prior to having a normal period. If you don't want to be pregnant, be sure to use some method of birth control. And if your periods have not returned to normal by perhaps 3 months after your miscarriage, it's time to see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Check Pregnancy Test: Any time you have a skipped or abnormal period and you are also having unprotected sex, then pregnancy is always a possibility. So check a home test or see your local clinic so they get you tested. Remember, everyone trying to get pregnant should be taking prenatal vitamins and everyone else should be on a reliable birth control method. Good Luck ...Read more

Miscarriage: It sounds like your body is back on track. Your periods may be slightly irregular for the next few months, as well as your hormone levels. You should be back to baseline within 6 months. There is no harm in trying to get pregnant again - just be sure that you are taking good care of yourself - avoid tobacco, alcohol, drugs. Eat healthy, exercise and take prenatal vitamins. ...Read more

My period came arround 15 days after sex,it was normall,expected and lasted 7 days.Is pregnacy possible after that?Or conceiving a month after sex?

?question: Not sure what your question is here? If you had sex, then had a regular period 15 days later for 7 days, you would NOT be pregnant. You can get pregnant mid cycle when you ovulate if you have unprotected sex. So if you do not want to be pregnant use BC (and condoms to prevent STI's). ...Read more

Miscarried November 2014 Haven't had period post miscarriage Had spotting just once If its implantation bleeding when to test for pregnancy?

Post miscarriage: It takes about 2 cycles after a miscarriage for you cycle to reboot. Spotting may not be a sign of implantation, but only your cycle restarting. I suggest waiting two weeks and if you have symptoms of pregnancy do a home urine test. If neg, then wait another month for your cycle to restart. ...Read more

Emergency room visit: Right lower quadrant abdominal pain in a female could be a number of things. The most life-threatening immediate problem to rule out would be appendicitis. Excruciating abdominal pain, whether you are male or female, always warrants further investigation, even if you are already under treatment for an underlying disorder. Pain is your body's way of signaling you that something is amiss. ...Read more

What are signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage if you haven't have your first period?

Back to School: Wow. Perhaps you are in need of a lesson in how your body works. Once the HCG hormone level decreases then your ovaries can reset and begin ovulation for the next cycle. You have already been told here today that this can take weeks to months to be healthy. Conception occurs if there is sperm ready to meet the ovulated egg at the next cycle. Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more

Soaking Pads Hourly: It's certainly reasonable for your first period after a miscarriage to be heavy. However, if you're hemorrhaging, meaning that you have very large clots or bleeding that causes you to change your pads hourly then you should probably seek attention. Otherwise it may take simply take time. If you ever have symptoms of dizziness or wanting to pass out, seek attention. ...Read more

I have miscarried on october 2013. I had a d& c the 17th of oct. Recieved my first period nov. 23rd . Now 12-29 & no period neg p test. Could i be pg?

Possibly.: Assuming your period on nov 23rd was a real period and that your periods are regular (sometimes they're not after a pregnancy loss), you'd expect a period in december but you haven't had one...If you had unprotected sex, it's always safe to assume the possibility and i would get tested. Were you trying for pregnancy? If not and not pregnant, consider contraception. Get on a prenatal vitamin btw! ...Read more
