Is mastitis normal during pregnancy?

Is mastitis normal during pregnancy?

Mastitis: Mastitis during breastfeeding is not normal but is certainly very common. It is caused by overgrowth of bacteria in milk-containing ducts. It is managed with oral antibiotics and continuation of breast feeding to empty the milk ducts. Mastitis while breastfeeding is not a sign of breast cancer.

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

If there's a remaining mass in my breast because of mastitis and I got pregnant again is there a possibility that it will lose if I breastfeed again?

If there's a remaining mass in my breast because of mastitis and I got pregnant again is there a possibility that it will lose if I breastfeed again?

Get checked out: There are some masses that form during breastfeeding that often resolve when milk production ends. I highly recommend that you get evaluated by a breast specialist. The mass should be evaluated fully. If it persists, then you may need a biopsy.

I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now and I keep getting all the pregnancy symptoms but no pregnancy. What does this mean?

I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now and I keep getting all the pregnancy symptoms but no pregnancy. What does this mean?

False symptoms: Pregnancy symptoms can be the same as anxiety symptoms. These symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, and fatigue. You should try relaxing and stop trying to get pregnant. Yoga and guided meditation can help. Also, if you are working out too much, it can affect regular ovulation. Also, know that there may be nothing wrong, your body needs time. See your doctor.

I was on nuvaring for 5 years, I went off bc 5 months ago and no pregnancy yet how longer I need to wait to get pregnant?

Normal: Once a woman stops birth control the chance of getting pregnant is about 15-20% per cycle. 80% of women are pregnant by one year. So it's normal to not be pregnant yet 5 months after stopping birth control. You are most fertile 14 days before the next period is due.

Review/likely: Review your problem with your GYN/OBS MD to see if you require additional workup and treatment to become pregnant. All the best.

Kindly guide that is the masturbation for a wife during sex can be a problem to get pregnant. We are trying from 6 months but no pregnancy occured yet?

Kindly guide that is the masturbation for a wife during sex can be a problem to get pregnant. We are trying from 6 months but no pregnancy occured yet?

Don't worry (yet): Masturbation for a woman will not affect becoming pregnant but a man masturbating often might lower his sperm count reducing the chance of pregnancy. It takes the average couple 6 months to become pregnant, meaning half the time it takes longer. Don't worry unless a year goes by without conceiving. If that happens see a doctor (your husband too)-also consider herbs like rhodiola and ashwagandha.

I missed my period its been 15 days no pregnancy symptoms. Can I get pregnant?

I missed my period its been 15 days no pregnancy symptoms. Can I get pregnant?

No guessing: We do not live in a world where we guess anymore when it comes to pregnancy. If you have missed a period and you were sexual during your ovulation then it is time to get a pregnancy test. All answers to your question will be solved with the results of the test.

8 months marriage. Am trying to get pregnant. Was on Clomid (clomiphene) 4 cycle e good ovulation but no pregnancy.....is it time to do hystroscope...or what???

Infertility consult: Four to six cycles on Clomid (clomiphene) is a sufficient trial. If pregnancy has not occurred it is time to see a reproductive endocrinologist/infertility specialist to see what further testing and/or treatments would be best for you.

Trying to get pregnant got a negative pregnancy test few days ago period is due in 5 days but no pregnancy symptoms can I still be pregnant?

Trying to get pregnant got a negative pregnancy test few days ago period is due in 5 days but no pregnancy symptoms can I still be pregnant?

Possible: Most urine pregnancy test can pick up a pregnancy when HCG is around 50 miu or above. Since your period is not due for another 5 days, it is very unlikely the upt can pick up a pregnancy that early. Repeat a pregnancy test when you miss you period, then more than likely it will be positive if you are pregnant.

Boyfriend smokes n drinks alcohol we've had sex 2years with no contraceptive and no pregnancy how long will it take to get pregnant after he quits?

Boyfriend smokes n drinks alcohol we've had sex 2years with no contraceptive and no pregnancy how long will it take to get pregnant after he quits?

???: Smoking and alcohol should not definitively effect the chance of pregnancy. If mid cycle, when your ovulating, unprotected sex does not yield a pregnancy after many tries, than there may be another issues at play and a fertility assessment may be warranted. Certainly, he should stop smoking and drinking in excess.
