Know your ovulation: First, urinating after sex has nothing to do with pregnancy , it is to prevent urinary infection. Secondly,if you wish to get pregnant you should know when you ovulate( when the egg comes out and ready to meet the sperms). It happens in the mid cycle, 14 th day after periods, . There are over the counter kits availble at your pharmacy to know this. You should have intercourse on that day. ...Read more

Are my chances of getting pregnant just as likely if he didn't climax inside me? Could the "pre cum" get me pregnant? How likely is it?

See below: Chances of getting pregnant certainly are much greater if ejaculation occurred, especially if around your mid-cycle "fertile window" with ovulation. Also, sometimes men ejaculate semen/sperm without being aware of it. As for "pre-cum", in some men it has been shown to contain viable sperm and, even though in smaller concentrations than in a normal ejaculate, the potential for impregnation exists. ...Read more

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

Ok: Success of a tubal reversal depends on three things: age of the patient and at 39 you are still ok, skill of the surgeon and length of tubal segments remaining. In my experience, the "bands" are the easiest to reverse and give you the best success rates. Ivf is also an option but generally is more expensive. It is a choice. Good luck. ...Read more
