I want to have twins ...I have no problem getting pregnant ...I was hoping i could use a fertility druck my bio dad is a twin im 23 years after I have my next pregnancy i was to get fixed ... What can I do?
Be : Be careful what you wish for ... Twins are more high risk than a single baby, although most twins do fine with good OB and neonatal care, some twins have long-term problems, some are premature and some don't even make it to viability and are born before 24 weeks. The risk of cerebral palsy, a serious birth defect, is 4 - 5 times higher in twins compared to a single baby. You have a higher chance of pregnancy complications including serous ones like preeclampsia or placental abruption, a higher risk of c/section, and even a very slight increase in divorce rate. I know the media and anne geddes and other baby photographers all love to show pictures of cute twins all dressed up ... The kids with cerebral palsy are generally not shown on the front cover of a magazine. Couples who need treatment for infertility, from simple treatments like Clomid to advanced treatments such as in vitro fertilization (ivf), often have an increased risk of twins if more than one egg is released with fertility medications, or if more than one embryo is replaced into a woman's uterus after ivf. If we're treating couples for infertility who can't get pregnant on their own twins may be an acceptable risk of the treatment. Many couples tell me they want twins - they have been trying for a baby for one or many years, and many couples want two babies total and would love to have twins and 'be done'. We do our best to avoid triplets or more, though. In this case the risk of twins is justified by the benefit of treatment of their infertility. If you don't have any problems getting pregnant your natural chance of twins is about 1%. I don't recommend going to an ob/gyn or fertility md just because you want twins (wanting twins for "social reasons") - if you end up with complications to you or the babies, would it be worthwhile compared with just having two more kids separately? I would not recommend "getting fixed" in your early 20's until you are 100% sure that you're done either, we have great birth control options like the Mirena iud which is about as effective as having your tubes tied but reversible if you have one more child and then want another one later. I know this is not the answer you want. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 43 years old, i still have a period every month, can I still get pregnant or am i to old? Can recreational drug use also be the cause of not getting pregnant if both partners are using? I don't take birth control and I have had the same partner for t
Pregnant at 43: Yes you can still get pregnant at 43. You likely do not ovulate on a regular, consistent basis even with regular periods, but you most certainly can still get pregnant. Drug use may affect fertility. You do not want to be using drugs in preconception or pregnancy timeframes for BOTH your health and that of your unborn child. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If on birth control can you get pregnant from precum? My boyfriend and I had sex twice in one day without him urinating in between. We didn't use a condom and he used the withdrawal method? What are my chances of getting pregnant ?
Birth control: Birth control when used correctly is very effective at preventing pregnancy. The male urinating before or after does not change the risk of pregnancy in any way. That is a myth. The withdrawal method is not needed when on birth control. Condoms help prevent STDs. You are already protected against pregnancy on the pill. ...Read more
I'm trying to get pregnant and I've been trying for a year now and nothing What could I do to help getting pregnant or is there something wrong?
Access to a doc?: 85-90% of totally normal couples conceive with unprotected sex in 1 year, whether they are trying or not, so "infertility" is defined in medicine by failing to conceive in 1 year. By this reasoning you (or your partner) are highly likely to have a problem slowing you down. I don't know how access to fertility care is in Canada but highly recommend seeing a doctor to start problem solving. GL! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have tried getting pregnant since i was 18 and alway negative results. Does this mean i can't get pregnant?
Maybe not naturally.: If you have had six years of primary infertility, you need to seek care with a reputable in vitro fertilization lab in your area. You may have blocked tubes from prior pid/salpingitis, uterine anomaly or trying the wrong way/time. In any case a visit with a specialist in infertility should help answer your questions and get you pregnant (naturally, or with assistance). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily. ...Read more
