Is there much of a chance to become pregnant on day 17 of a 27 day cycle? Thanks

Is there much of a chance to become pregnant on day 17 of a 27 day cycle? Thanks

Yes, a small chance: Even if you have had a fairly regular 27 day cycle, the timing of your ovulation, the few days that you are "fertile" and your chances of getting pregnant may unfortunately vary from cycle to cycle . The postovulatory phase of your cycle usually lasts 12 to 14 days but the preovulatory phase may change. Monitoring your ovulation day will be preferable and more useful to you. Ask an REI doctor how. ...Read more

Not sure about this - is it true we are 'little' fertile starting the day period ends? Can pregnancy be achieved at this time besides during ovulation

Not sure about this - is it true we are 'little' fertile starting the day period ends? Can pregnancy be achieved at this time besides during ovulation

Fertility: Your ovulation will usually be 12-16 days after your period begins. It is only at ovulation that the egg can be fertilized. However, sperm can last for a number of days in the cervical mucus. So if you had sex on say day 5-6, it is possible for some of these sperm to still be "hanging around" on your ovulation day...Not likely, but possible. ...Read more

Is there more risk of having a disabled child if you conceive when the released egg is at its oldest i.e. on the last day of your 5 fertile days?

Is there more risk of having a disabled child if you conceive when the released egg is at its oldest i.e. on the last day of your 5 fertile days?

MIsinformed?: No. The risk of genetic defects increases with the age of you and your ovaries and the eggs all together. Ovulation occurs as an event. It does not happen during the five days leading up to ovulation, the release of the egg. The five fertile days represent the days sperm can survive long enough to reach the ovary and impregnate an egg. The egg is still released on the same day in a regular cyc ...Read more

What are the effects of alcohol on a fetus during the very first weeks -- before a woman knew she was pregnant?

What are the effects of alcohol on a fetus during the very first weeks -- before a woman knew she was pregnant?

Likely nothing: The main risk of alcohol exposure to a fetus is when it is repeated and continuous exposure over 9 months. This is called fetal alcohol syndrome. If toxin exposure to an embryo is going to cause a problem very early, it is an "all or nothing" phenomenon. Meaning, if it was going to cause a problem, you would have a miscarriage. If it doesn't cause a miscarriage, the pregnancy will likely be ok. ...Read more

Had period at expected time, not as painful as usual and it was a lot lighter, lasted the normal 4 days. Is it because I'm on b/c pill or pregnant?

Had period at expected time, not as painful as usual and it was a lot lighter, lasted the normal 4 days. Is it because I'm on b/c pill or pregnant?

Pill: The oral contraceptive pill actually produces a "period" via hormone withdrawal bleeding. Moreover, the endometrial lining is not as thick when on the pill which is one of the secondary methods of contraception by preventing inadvertent implantation. All of this is true only if you have not skipped any pills and if you have run a pregnancy test. ...Read more
