Can A Woman Get Pregnant During Her Menstrual Cycle
How likely is it that a woman can get pregnant if her tubes have been tied, she has had her menstral cycle for the month but has pregnant symptoms?
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. 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

My boyfriend and I had sex and we did not use protection except for the "pull-out" method. Could I still get pregnant? I have do not have a normal menstural cycle. Many people tell me that I can still get pregnant. I am not sure what to believe. Please hel
Basic biology: The "pull out" method is based on the idea that as long as you "pull out" before delivering the "load" pregnancy will not occur. However, it only takes a single sperm, present in all the mucous secretions (semen) of the penis during intercourse. You may cut your risks a small amount, but plan for parenthood if this is your plan. ...Read more
I haven't ovulated in six months. My menstral cycle is just starting today! What are my chances of trying to get pregnant?
See a REI specialist: Your chances are lower than average but not zero. See a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinologist) to find out why you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) very often: could be pcos, thyroid or prolactin hormone issues, low egg supply, or low hormone levels due to stress, exercise, eating disorders. Your chances depend on your age and the reason you're not ovulating - treatment will help. ...Read more

Hi, I took 3 ipills in the gap of 1 week in starting of jan'17 then after 20 days had my Menstrual cycle. Bt I having stomachache since. M I pregna?
Can do preg. Test: Three i-Pills in 1 week means something is wrong. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred) or 1 week after missing a 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 she gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
