If you have an iud, can you get pregnant when your boyfriend hugs you when you're both naked and there is no semen and no pre-cum present?

If you have an iud, can you get pregnant when your boyfriend hugs you when you're both naked and there is no semen and no pre-cum present?

IUD great: ChristinaR--If you've had an IUD, chances are you've been sexually active before. Generally, hugging--even naked--won't allow for pregnancy. That being said, even in the most fertile of women, IUDs prevent 99% of pregnancy. So you should be safe...Remember, IUDs do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases, so be careful still! ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I'm on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD and taking a antibiotic (Sulfamethoxazole). Can I get pregnant?

I'm on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD and taking a antibiotic (Sulfamethoxazole). Can I get pregnant?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD: No the antibiotics will not decrease the effectiveness of the Mirena (levonorgestrel). But like any contraceptive method, the IUD does have a low baseline rate of pregnancy. So yes you may get pregnant (very low risk) but if you do, it won't be because of the antibiotics. ...Read more

Trying to conceive, but husband is taking antibiotics amoxycilin and dicloxacillin 250mg each. Will it affect sperms or pose prblms if I get pregnt?

Trying to conceive, but husband is taking antibiotics amoxycilin and dicloxacillin 250mg each. Will it affect sperms or pose prblms if I get pregnt?

Probably not...: What I have known and what I have reviewed and read failed to reveal any mention of their possible effect on spermatogenesis - sperm formation. So, I would say both have no concern on sperms. However, in reality, behind what we have known always still hides a lot of what we don't know. If still in doubt, ask his prescribing doctor. ...Read more

Going to be tested for C diff after antibiotic use. If I end up being tx for it, is it okay to try for pregnancy next month? Recurrence risk? Worried!

C diff: If your treatment for c diff is successful as determined by follow-up stool culture and you feel healthy, I don't see why you shouldn't attempt to get pregnant. If you have to stay on medications, then you should ask your obgyn for advice on this matter. ...Read more

2 weeks late on my period but have the IUD can I still get pregnant?

2 weeks late on my period but have the IUD can I still get pregnant?

Yes: IUDs are very reliable but no method of contraception is 100% effective. The progestin containing IUDs like Mirena (levonorgestrel) and Skyla can cause you to miss periods as can many things other than pregnancy but, if your period is late, do a pregnancy test and, if it is negative and your period still hasn't started, repeat it in 3-5 days to know for sure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My iud mirena (levonorgestrel) expired February 4 2015 can I get pregnant if im bleeding?

Time to change: The manufacturer of Mirena (levonorgestrel) recommends removal after five years. We do know a "grace period" is built in knowing that some may keep in longer. A few studies have demonstrated that it is effective for longer than five years. Regardless, it should be removed and replaced if you are not ready to get pregnant. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. ...Read more

Is it possible for you to get an accurate reading from a home pregnancy test while on the iud?

Iud and pregnancy: Home pregnancy tests are accurate but not the best. They can be the first useful tool in diagnosing early pregnancy before you get to your doctor. Iud's do not influence or interfere with results of home pregnancy test or any pregnancy test at all. ...Read more

I had sex a gentleman on a Thursday. Then on Friday I had my copper IUD removed and had sex. Could I get pregnant from thursday?

I had sex a gentleman on a Thursday. Then on Friday I had my copper IUD removed and had sex. Could I get pregnant from thursday?

Possibly: The deposits of Thursday can remain active for a couple of days in your tubes, and fertilize an egg coming through. Since the coil was removed Friday, it would not be around to receive and interfere with implantation if it was to occur. However, the trauma of coil removal might have made the area unsuitable for implantation. It's always good to overlap methods of BC if you are in the process of change ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant with a copper IUD if he doesn't cum inside you? Is it possible the stress of worrying is making me late?

Unlikely: The sperm must be present, and travel, and meet the egg and have a place to settle in.
Sperm release can be without full ejaculation, so condom has merit in control.
Iuds make the uterus inhospitable but very rarely pregnancy can occur.
If you do not want to get pregnant, there are some choices to be made. ...Read more

Got the IUD out nov16 & I just had unprotected sex today will I get pregnant? & how long will it take for me to take a pregnancy test?

See below: You could get pregnant from the sex, if you ovulate within 4-5 days after the sex. You may do a blood test for HCG in about three weeks. Better would be to do a home pregnancy test if you miss your period by 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Yes: The iud does not inhibit an egg coming off the ovary. I assume it was a mirena, (levonorgestrel) the bleeding may have been menstrual bleeding.

Is it possible to get pregnant from unprotected sex 5 days before iud removal? I also took a plan B & had 6 day cycle starting 2 days after removal

Unlikely, but...: Life can be full of surprises. Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

I don't feel my iud string n I think I might be pregnant n I took a home pregnancy test twice n it came back negative n I get symptoms of pregnancy?

Blood test: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to both is yes, you may wish to get a blood test for HCG. Or you could repeat the hpt in a week or so. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
