Am i able to get pregnant if my boyfriend sperm is sterile yes or no and i never had sex at all. And if i wanted to what can i do to get the baby?

Am i able to get pregnant if my boyfriend sperm is sterile yes or no and i never had sex at all. And if i wanted to what can i do to get the baby?

Well, yes and no.: If your boy friend has no sperm (no sperm in semen) which is sterile, then you could not get pregnant with him. When you get ready to try to have a baby, having sex or artificial insemination is about the only way. I doubt I have answered your question....but how does your boyfriend know he is sterile? He must have had a semenalysis some time. Men presume they are fertile, until no pregnancy . ...Read more

Can i get pregnant if i haven't had my period for 3 years?  I am 37. If i can get pregnant.  What is the likelihood that i would?

Impossible Questions: There is no way to give you any kind of valid answer to your question. It appears you are in menopause unless the amenorrhea is from something else.

I am on the pill but do not take it at the same time everyday. When I have sex i always use a condom. Am i safe enough not to get pregnant?

Yes: Slight variation in the time of day that you take the pill will not make a big difference in its effectiveness, but you might experience some breakthrough bleeding. If you cannot take the pill at the same time every day, though, universal use of the condoms is a great idea and lowers the chance of pregnancy to almost zero. ...Read more

I've been using Rodan and fields unblemish regimen. I am 12 weeks pregnant. I am worried now. Is this safe to use or should I not be using it?

I've been using Rodan and fields unblemish regimen. I am 12 weeks pregnant. I am worried now. Is this safe to use or should I not be using it?

Not tested: None of the Unblemish routine has been specifically tested in pregnancy. The sulphur wash is probably ok in pregnancy, but the hydroquinone spot treatment is not. The herbal components are untested as well. Best to check with your dermatologist, ob-gyn and primary care about suitability. The benzoyl peroxide agent has mixed reviews in pregnancy by different specialists. ...Read more
