See a GYN: Sometimes trying to get pregnant is not as easy as you might think. Lots of things interfere with fertilization e.g. Anxiety, low sperm count, fatigue etc. I don't think coffee in moderation is a problem have intercourse not so much to make a baby but to show your love for each other, relax and let mother nature do the rest. If still not pregnant in six months then a visit to a gyn is in order. ...Read more

Do you think drinking coffee&a bagel with cream cheese could be a reason of me getting sick if possibly pregnant? It's 2 days after my expected period

No way to tell...: This is definitely not a confirmation that you are pregnant. There are many possible reasons to get sick with any type of food and many reasons to be late for your period. However and as we know pregnancy is the most common reason so I would suggest to get a home based pregnancy test in order to find out if this is the case. ...Read more

Periods can vary: Menstrual periods may vary a little in length, pain and flow. Sometimes they can even be skipped or come very early or late due to stress. Occasionally periods are more painful due to an STD. If your pregnancy test was negative, and you had a period of any sort, you are probably not pregnant. If you are still concerned, re-check a home test in a week, and/or see your gynecologist. ...Read more

My period is yet to come on the 23rd. Can drinking cinnamon& large amounts of coffee help in preventing unwanted pregnancy if had unprotected sex?

My period is yet to come on the 23rd. Can drinking cinnamon& large amounts of coffee help in preventing unwanted pregnancy if had unprotected sex?

No, but...: The large amounts of coffee will keep you awake, thinking about being pregnant. If it has only been a few days, one can call her Ob-Gyn right away, to see if emergency contraception will still work. If it is almost late for emergency contraception pills, ask about getting an IUD. An IUD works as emergency contraception and also benefits by preventing future pregnancies (until the IUD is removed). ...Read more

Had implanon put in december no problems until now have been on my period for 4 weeks with stomach cramping and the craving off coffee I am worried?

Bummer: I'm so sorry that you're having these side effects. You may want to talk to doctor about taking some estrogen to help stop the bleeding. As far as the stomach cramping is concerned, Ibuprofen should work for that. Craving coffee.... Hmmmm, I'm not sure that's related? ...Read more

You: You need medical attention. The coffee ground vomit is likely due to your nose bleed. The blood becomes oxygenated in the GI tract which gave it this appearance. The blood when you blew your nose, is likely to be from the lesion that is the source of your nose bleed. It needs to be determined why you are continuing to bleed vaginally. You appear to be bleeding several different sites. Sometimes, if the nose bleed is not stopping, it might need treatment (like cautery). Please call your doctor this morning to get further instructions. ...Read more
