A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

So if your LMP started around Jan 22nd then ovulation could happen around Feb 6,7 or 8. ...Read more

Cycle : Cycle length can vary from month to month, this is not uncommon or worrisome. The pain you get 5 days prior to your period is a symptom of pms (premenstrual syndrome). You can start taking Ibuprofen 400mg or 600mg by mouth every 6 hours the week before your period, this may help ease your pain. If you have failed to get pregnant less than a year of trying then i would not worry about there being any infertility issues. If a year has passed then you should consider seeing an infertility specialist. In the meantime you can buy an over the counter ovulation prediction kit and follow the detailed instructions. Best of luck. ...Read more

Fecundity: Even in the healthiest of individuals, under the optimal condition(s); there is no 100% pregnancy rate (e.g. getting pregnant every time you have sex). Indeed the average fecundity rate can vary from 15 to 30%. Many of these factors are not well understood. However, the high atrition rate (e.g. the amount of sperm that eventually don't make it to the egg) contributes to some of this. ...Read more

I heard I can get pregnant 14 days after the day I start my period. Is that right?

I heard I can get pregnant 14 days after the day I start my period. Is that right?

It depends : If you have regular, predictable cycles conception is most likely between 12-14 days before your next cycle. So, assuming a 28day menstrual pattern, then yes- that would be around day 14. If cycle length is every 30 days, then it would be around day 15-16. That's why it's important to know your menstrual pattern. So, not recess adult days after the start of a period but actually days before! ...Read more

No, not at that time: A woman cannot get her normal regular period and be pregnant at the same time. However, she can get pregnant a week or two after her normal period. If she has some spotting or light bleeding that doesn't look like her normal regular period, she can check a urine pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) to see if she is pregnant. ...Read more

I'm five days late for my period, and I have all the symptoms of what happens before I get it. Why haven't I got it?

Late period.: Assuming you are not pregnant, it is probably due to an anovulatory cycle and due to hormonal shifts. Are you under significant stress? That can cause it. Anorexia or marked weight loss can cause it, too. If it doesn't start in another 5-7 days, and you are sexually active, check an OTC pregnancy test with first AM urine for peace of mind. ...Read more
