Can a women become pregnant 1 day after her period? 21 years old

Can a women become pregnant 1 day after her period? 21 years old

The: The odds of this happening are extremely low, but yes it can occur. Ovulation (fertile time) typically occurs around 14 days or so into a woman's cycle (for example if bleeding started on the 1st then ovulation would typically be the 14th, but could be a day or two before or after this) here is an example of how pregnancy could occur in this situation: if her period was 7 days long and sex took place on day 8, considering sperm could live about 2-3 days, and if ovulation occurred earlier for some reason that month, there is a chance that pregnancy could occur. But as you see for this to happen a lot of "if's" have to occur. Good luck and always remember condoms are very effective in preventing pregnancy. Read more

I'm 36 years old trying to get pregnant but I'm concerned about having a Down syndrome because of my age how at risk I will be if I conceived?

I'm 36 years old trying to get pregnant but I'm concerned about having a Down syndrome because of my age how at risk I will be if I conceived?

For giving birth: To a child with DS your risk is 1:275. At 16 weeks gestation your risk of having a fetus with DS is 1:200. This is assuming there is no FH of Down Syndrome. These numbers are approximations based on no other risk factors. They all, however, calculate your risk of having a child without DS at greater than 99 percent. Read more

What are the next steps to become pregnant if my wife has low egg supply? She hasn't been fullly tested for low egg supply, but I doubt she has a low supply since she's only 32 years old.

What are the next steps to become pregnant if my wife has low egg supply? She hasn't been fullly tested for low egg supply, but I doubt she has a low supply since she's only 32 years old.

Depends on how bad: Some 32 year olds have low ovarian reserve or low egg supply, even some women in their 20's. Some have normal egg supply in their mid 30's or older. .. Everyone is different. Treatments may work by releasing more than one egg in a month with Clomid (clomiphene) or letrozole, or using injectable medicines with, or instead of tablets to release more eggs. Some women need in vitro fertilization or ivf to conceive. Read more

Hello,: Hello, the effectiveness for condoms when used consistently and correctly is about 98%. However, often they are not used consistently or correctly. Warfarin is contraindicated in pregnancy.

I am 42 years old and have had my tubes banded for 12 years. Is it possible for me to have a reveral and have a baby? I want to know if I do become pregnant, what are the chances of complications of pregnancy or birth defects.

I am 42 years old and have had my tubes banded for 12 years. Is it possible for me to have a reveral and have a baby? I want to know if I do become pregnant, what are the chances of complications of pregnancy or birth defects.

Fresh eggs: From your age I assume you still have a basket full of chances. It may be technically a problem as getting tubes to work again after they were tied is not always successful. A fertility dr could help you ovulate & harvest some eggs through a laparoscope. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Difficult & expensive but possible. Read more

If: If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months without any luck, then you should call your ob/gyn to discuss - especially if you are not having a regular period. There are lots of other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, illness, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. All of these things can also affect your ability to get pregnant. Give your doctor a call. Read more

Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant? What are some of the signs?

Yes: The chance of getting pregnant after a tubal ligation is low but not zero. According to one study, the failure (pregnancy) rate can be as high as 5.5% over 10 years. This means that if 100 women had this procedure 5-6 would get pregnant over the next 10 years. Of course, the risk of pregnancy depends on the type of procedure done. The signs are the same as without a tubal ligation. Read more
