Yes, : Yes, that is a very good question. It is impossible to know exactly when a woman ovulates. Typically, it is about two weeks after the first day of her last period, but this varies a great deal. If the hormones are "out of whack", so to speak, then ovulation is very difficult to predict. Some women also have irregular periods or even spotting that is not actually their period, which also makes it difficult to predict. Therefore, you are right; unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy on almost any day of the cycle. ...Read more

No: It would be a rare event for a woman to get pregnant naturally, at age 47 years. Rare events are possible, but almost never happen. Menopause occurs between ages 42-58, with the average at age 51 years. ...Read more

If you are fertile: If you had the sex around the time you ovulate (if you are still fertile and having your period-even if irregular),...which is usually mid cycle, then you certainly could be/get pregnant . Check a pregnancy test if you miss your next period or get any symptoms. ...Read more

Miscarriage: I recommend you have your MTHFR 677 and 1298 genes checked. If you have SNPs in either, that can affect your risk for miscarriages and birth defects. You can take specific actions based on the results. ...Read more

I have a water cyst (4.7 mm) in my left ovary...Will i be able to get pregnant?

Hopefully: Ovarian cysts are common, and usually come and go. They don't usually affect fertility. So most likely you will be able to get pregnant. Depends more on whether you're having normal regular periods. ...Read more
