I had anal sex with my husband on 8th day of my periods, he ejacuated in my anus twice. Insd of next periods I got only brown discharge. Am I pregnent?

Maybe but not fromit: If you only had anal sex and ejaculation into your anus on 8th day of your period you will not get pregnant. If healthy viable and mobile sperms were introduced into your cervix then or at other times, the risk of pregnancy would increase. A simple blood pregnancy betaHCG test will answer your question. ...Read more

Is lower back pain near pelvic area normal, and how will I know if burning in vagina area is already UTI w/o urinalysis in 31 weeks pregnancy?

Is lower back pain near pelvic area normal, and how will I know if burning in vagina area is already UTI w/o urinalysis in 31 weeks pregnancy?

You can't know: For sure without an exam and a urinalysis. It is important to get a diagnosis and treatment since you are pregnant. If you can't get to a clinic/lab over the weekend, you can drink lots of cranberry juice. You can also clean yourself off VERY well, go into a clean cup or jar and check for any odor. Leave it at room temp overnight, if not infected, it should still be clear and nearly odorless. ...Read more

Pink/brown discharge 5 days after unprotected sex with 99% positive no ejaculation on microlite contraceptive pill. Slight bloating/pain. Am I pregant?

Unlikely, but...: 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 withdrawal 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
