My wife. 37, is not having monthly periods since she gave birth 6 moths back. It was caesar. At the time of delivery ligation was done. Is she pregnant?

No Guessing: Doctors never, ever, guess when it comes to pregnancy. But, pregnancy is very much not likely after tubal ligation. There has to be another explanation for this lack of periods. If a pregnancy test is negative. Then the diagnosis to this condition will come after other testing and examination. ...Read more

What kind of shunt?: Please clarify what type of shunt you have, in your heart? From your brain to the vena cava or abdominal cavity for hydrocephalus? What type of shunt goes to your bladder? None should preclude you from getting pregnant, but getting pregnant may not be wise, depending on what type of shunt it is and what it was inserted to treat. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I got 3 positive pregnancy test but the last time I had intercourse was on november 15 and I had my period all this moths except this one march.

Newly Pregnant: Again not sure why this question warrants asking a dozen times. If you only missed one period this is likely a new pregnancy. Or the tests are inaccurate. Or there is much more to this story. I would bet an ultrasound will tell you a lot of real information. It is time to get to the ob's office urgently. ...Read more

Abortion pill is effective on 2nd moth of pregnancy? If not what is the remedy?

Maybe?: Depending on your location and the centers prescribing it, "the abortion pill" (i'm guessing you mean mifepristone, or ru-486) can be used up to 9 weeks or 12 weeks. Anywhere that can prescribe that should be able to counsel on other options depending on the actual gestational age of the fetus. ...Read more

In july I took the planb pill cause we felt we weren't ready I bleed twice that moth. Now we r willing to go for it. Will it be much harder now to become pregnant and also I am 37 as well will that make it even hard as well?

No and yes: Using the Plan B does not affect your future fertility. Age does - as you get older, your fertility will decrease. By the age of 37 there will be some decrease in fertility -although the majority of women at 37 will still be able to conceive. The fertility clock is constantly ticking - at the age of 37 you should notice that the ticking is getting louder. ...Read more

Doubtful-needs test: Get a blood pregnancy test (HCG). In an otherwise healthy feamle, a completely missed mentrual cycle is pregnancy until proven otherwise; however, it IS possible to be pregnant and still have periods. I suggest BOTH birth control and pregnancy testing. ...Read more

When your cycles are long and irregular, it is less likely that you will get pregnant but definitely possible.

Probably not preg: Fingers crossed that you probably not pregnant. If the preg tests were urine, then you could check again with a blood test - go see your provider to do that. To make absolutely sure

otherwise, probably just the stress is making your periods light

but could be something else, so see your provider! ...Read more

Can you get pregnant at any time during unprotected sex, even if there's a week before your period starts?

Can you get pregnant at any time during unprotected sex, even if there's a week before your period starts?

Not exactly: You can't get pregnant at any point, there is a fertile window which corresponds to about 5 days before until 1 to 2 days after ovulation. But because some women's cycles are quite variable in lengths and because sperm can survive in the reproductive tract for up to 5 days, it can appear like pregnancy can happen at any time. It is even possible (not likely) to get pregnant during your period! ...Read more

More recent studies show that women who wait have lower fertility rates than women who don't. So, if you are trying to get pregnant, you can determine when you feel ready to resume sexual activity.

Can short/small overies cause you to have a tougher time to get pregnant?

Can short/small overies cause you to have a tougher time to get pregnant?

Probably not: The size of the ovaries varies with a woman’s age and hormonal status. During childbearing years, the ovaries are 3-5 cm in length. Relatively smaller ovaries are probably no reason for concern as long as the ovaries are functioning properly. Hormones released from the ovaries control a woman's menstrual cycles. If menstrual cycles are not normal, there could be premature ovarian failure. ...Read more
