Hi I have 2 daughters and working on another baby but is there anyway I can. Ensure I will have a little boy? Or tips for conceiving a boy?

Nothing realistic: The gender of any offspring is determined by which sperm reaches the egg first and fertilizes it. All the myths about timing intercourse/ positions/special drinks/etc are just myths. They work half the time, the same as no effort at all. ...Read more

Hi I am having small cysts in my ovaries I had a scan and report says that the ovaries are enlarged and have cysts. Will this affect me to conceive?

Hi I am having small cysts in my ovaries I had a scan and report says that the ovaries are enlarged and have cysts. Will this affect me to conceive?

Maybe: It depends what type of cysts they are. It also depends on if the cysts are elevating your hormones and thus affecting your hormone cycle or egg production. If the cysts are truly small (<1 cm) then there is nothing to worry about. You may have pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) but not everyone whose has that cystic appearance on ultrasound actually has pcos. So a full evaluation is helpful! ...Read more

I have a little hearing loss, I am trying to conceive, what can I do to keep my hearing from worsening? And not passing it my baby?

I have a little hearing loss, I am trying to conceive, what can I do to keep my hearing from worsening? And not passing it my baby?

Transmitting hearing: Loss to a baby can occur with HCMV and other "torch infections" (you have to have the infection yourself though)
Autosomal dominant congenital hearing loss is transmitted to all offspring (but may have variable expression). Recessive inheritance requires both parents have the gene. There are over 300 causes for inherited deafness.
I suggest you see a specialist who can determine your type. ...Read more

Feeling a little pain in my left ovary for last 2 days after intercourse. Is this symptom of conceiving?

Feeling a little pain in my left ovary for last 2 days after intercourse. Is this symptom of conceiving?

No.: While possibly related, true ovarian pain is not a reliable sign of conception. If you are having intercourse in the middle of your cycle, the best time for fertility, your ovaries will be producing several eggs, which emerge from cysts on the ovary. Any of these cysts can cause some short-lived pain as they burst normally. There is no pain caused by a sperm meeting up with an egg. ...Read more

Husband is on heptral and folic acid because of a little high bilirubin, can we conceive now or after one month?

Husband is on heptral and folic acid because of a little high bilirubin, can we conceive now or after one month?

No data: There is no data available to see if it causes birth defects. It is not approved for use in pregnant women because no one knows. So it would be smart to wait. Also, waiting to see if the bilirubin level returns to normal is a good idea. When both of you are healthy, that is the best time to consider conception. Also, what other meds does he (or you) take?

My LMP was 3rd February. I have 28 days cycle. I bled little but for 4 days. I am trying to conceive so when is best day I have sex?

Ovulation count back: In a regularly cycling female ovulation usually occurs 14 days prior to your period if you don't get pregnant. Any abnormal period should be followed by a pregnancy test. So if you have a 28 day cycle 28 -14=14 so sex should be a few days before Day 14 To a few days after. If 30 day cycles then sex surrounding day 16 and if a 32 day cycle sex surrounding Day 18. ...Read more

I have bilateral hydrosalpinx, right tube blocked, left tube with small restriction spill at the end. What is my possibility to conceive?

I have bilateral hydrosalpinx, right tube blocked, left tube with small restriction spill at the end. What is my possibility to conceive?

Low chance: You have significant bilateral tubal damage. This makes your chance of conceiving (without IVF) low, hard to give you exact numbers but probably < 20%. If you do conceive, there is a high chance for an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy which can be an emergency. IVF offers you the best chance to conceive. Your tubes will likely need to be removed first prior to IVF to give you the best chance. ...Read more

Dx of salpingitis isthmica nodosa on left tube. Dr had little info, said very rare. Can I still conceive naturally since no other issues? Only ivf?

SIN: Is extremely rare nowadays, esp. In the us. Most non-specialists in this country have never actually seen it, even most career res have not seen many cases. How was this diagnosis made? If it was made on hsg, it is a tentative diagnosis at best. If it was surgery by an experienced physician, more likely. If you do truly have sin, ivf likely is your best solution. ...Read more
