My husband and i are trying to conceive. I am ovulating today but I have a concert in a week to go to. Is it okay to consume alcohol a week after ov?

Back to School?: Sex has to occur before ovulation. Before the egg is released from the ovary. Sperm will not reach the ovary in time to cause a viable pregnancy if one has sex after the egg is released from the ovary. There is no chemical or physical connection between a new fetus and the mother for about fourteen days after conception. Thus alcohol in the week of concept would not harm the fetus. ...Read more

Also, the timing of ovulation is not always predictable, and can be affected by hormonal contraceptives. Alcohol and drugs should, of course, be avoided when a woman is trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

Does plan b cause a delay on ovulation or how does it work?

Prevent ovulation.: If taken at the right time, before your body sends a signal to ovulate (LH surge), EC can stop the signal and completely prevent ovulation. The follicle will likely degrade without the signal to release the egg. The EC would sustain the lining of the uterus and once that is cleared, you'll have a period. ...Read more

Question: Had Protected sex May 3 plan b May 5 ovulation date May 7th Did plan B delay ovulation date to a further date ? Thanks!

Question:

Had Protected sex May 3
plan b May 5
ovulation date May 7th

Did plan B delay ovulation date to a further date ? Thanks!

Sort of...: When Plan B blocks an ovulation, one cannot predict the next date that ovulation will occur, but cycles should normalize after another monthly cycle. The simple act of taking Plan B is an enormously loud voice saying: USE RELIABLE CONTRACEPTION RIGHT NOW AND EVERY DAY. Hopefully, that is easy to do in most cases, and can eliminate the desire or need to know exactly when ovulation will happen next. ...Read more
