Can Gay People Get Pregnant
I am 36 and am on my 3rd round of IUI (we did 2 vials this month) but my doctor won't allow me to take Clomid or any other medecine until after 6 failed attempts. Is that normal? I am gay so it's not like I was trying to get pregnant before this and fail
Hmmmm: You should trust your doctor of course, but multiple IUI with unstimulated cycles (no medicine) is an 'unusual' treatment plan. If you are having trouble communicating with this doctor, a second opinion could be in order. ...Read more

I went for the HSG test as recommended by doctor. Its been almost 45 days n now I found out that m 60 gays pregnant will the test affect my baby?
I don't know if this is medical or not. But I'm wondering if it's possible to get pregnant even if you're not ovulating. I learned that if you have unprotected sex, no matter what day of the month it is, you will get pregnant.
Yes,: Yes, that is a very good question. It is impossible to know exactly when a woman ovulates. Typically, it is about two weeks after the first day of her last period, but this varies a great deal. If the hormones are "out of whack", so to speak, then ovulation is very difficult to predict. Some women also have irregular periods or even spotting that is not actually their period, which also makes it difficult to predict. Therefore, you are right; unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy on almost any day of the cycle. ...Read more

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy.

Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more

Stay healthy: A healthy woman is the best place to start. Be at a healthy weight, eat healthy foods, and exercise at least 30-60 minutes a day. Get regular sleep of 7-8 hrs a night. Don't smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs, all of these decrease fertility. Have sex every other day during your ovulatory time (can purchase ovulation predictor kits at drug store).

Slow down: It seems illogical at first, but anxiety to become pregnant is not productive. At least it seems longer and causes more anxiety. There are many stories of couples "trying" for months or years without success. They go on a cruise or a vacation and just relax and enjoy each other. Pregnancy usually follows. If you think you maybe having fertility issues, see a fertility specialist. ...Read more
