Stress: Stress can affect the timing of your menses onset. Sometimes you can get a tubal pregnancy even if your tubes are tied. I would take weekly pregnancy test until your period starts.

I recently had a d and c on march 26. Ob ob gave us the ok to try again. Having pregnancy symptoms but period is 11 days away. Is it possible I am?

Maybe: You might be, but it is early and seems unlikely. I'm assuming the d;c was for a miscarriage. Your next ovulating could occur about april 8-9 and your next menses about april 22-23. It might be a little delayed from these dates. If you are pregnant a pregnancy test should be positive during the next few days, even before your expected period. ...Read more

Yes it is possible: After a miscarraige you quickly return to your normal fertility state and it is possible to get pregnant again. As for predict the future of your next pregnancy no one can say. Having one miscarriage in the past certainly does not mean you could not have a normal pregnancy in the future. ...Read more

Hi had a mc on 19nov nd want to get pregnant now I got my first period so is it normal to get pregnant now or I have to wait?

Normal: If I read your question correctly, you had a child in november, now you have had a period, and you are wondering if you can get pregnant. Certainly if you have sex without any contraception you might. If you are breast-feeding it is less likely but not impossible. It may not be a good idea to get pregnant again so quickly, but you should consult your OB doctor for specifics as to your health. ...Read more

Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more
