Period is a 30 day cycle. I had unprotected sex with bf after period ended which was 3 days. Just making sure. Isn't it impossible to get pregnant?

Yes, and STD too: Anytime you have unprotected sex you are at risk for getting pregnant if you are not using a reliable form of birth control. Although, theoretically women are most fertile about mid cycle, a woman can potentially get pregnant at any time during her cycle. In addition, anytime you have unprotected sex you put yourself at risk for getting a sexually transmitted infection. Protect yourself! ...Read more

If I were making out with my girlfriend and I precum and I see the wet spot, can the precum get her pregnant though the clothes, ? thanks

Super Sperm: While I cannot give you a "free pass" as if a sperm DID make it through your clothes, through her clothes, into and up vagina and fallopian tube, then yes, could happen. Oh, and she'd have to be at/near ovulation in cycle. Would call it a very low risk activity. If she should be late, can always check home pregnancy test for reassurance. ...Read more

Is it true if he ejaculate inside me and I used douche it actually pushed it further up making it easier to get me pregnant than preventing?

Is it true if he ejaculate inside me and I used douche it actually pushed it further up making it easier to get me pregnant than preventing?

No, not true: Douching will not promote the semen/sperm into a more advantageous position for fertilization. If anything, the douche solution may reduce the likelihood of pregnancy because it can alter the pH balance in the vagina or interfere with cervical mucus. Cervical mucus facilitates the passage of sperm to the egg. In general, douching is not recommended unless recommended by your care provider. ...Read more

Am I infertile? My boyfriend and I have used only the withdrawal method while making love for over two years now and we do it at least 2-3 times a week. I haven't got pregnant, not that I'm trying to get pregnant anytime soon, however I do want children

Am I infertile? My boyfriend and I have used only the withdrawal method while making love for over two years now and we do it at least 2-3 times a week. I haven't got pregnant, not that I'm trying to get pregnant anytime soon, however I do want children

The: The withdraw method is not a very reliable form of contraception. It is reasonable to be suspicious that there may be an issue given the duration and frequency of intercourse. I don't think that it would be appropriate to give you a firm diagnosis of infertilty however. Probably the best approach is to consider your current age, the number of children you want, and make informed decisions about how to move forward. If you are 23 then not worrying about this for 4-5 years is ok. If you really don't want children now then get on a more reliable form of contraception. If you are 32 and want 4 children then waiting 4- 5 years is probably not a good idea. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant with a copper IUD if he doesn't cum inside you? Is it possible the stress of worrying is making me late?

Unlikely: The sperm must be present, and travel, and meet the egg and have a place to settle in.
Sperm release can be without full ejaculation, so condom has merit in control.
Iuds make the uterus inhospitable but very rarely pregnancy can occur.
If you do not want to get pregnant, there are some choices to be made. ...Read more

Hubby & I r ttc but im taking vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Dr says to stop once we get a confirmed pregnancy but is taking it making ttc harder? Or creating miscarriages?

Pregnancy Category C: In my opinion if you r TTC (took me awhile to figure that one out! HA!) because this is a Cat. C drug meaning we don't know how it really affects pregnancies then, I would recommend being off the drug for a minimum of 4-8 weeks, make sure you're on your Folic Acid during the same time and then, TTC. That way you'll never have a doubt as to what or what not the med is doing for conception. ...Read more

18 weeks pregnant and having pelvic pressure which is making it difficult to walk. It's hurts when I sit up or get up to move around. Is it bad?

Round ligament pain: Between 18 and 24 weeks many people will have round ligament pain. It occurs due to stretching of the round ligaments as the uterus enlarges during pregnancy. Typically it is worse with walking upstairs, rolling over in bed or pushing your uterus from side to side. Gentle walking will help. If you have unprovoked regular pain or any bleeding or loss of fluids, you should consult your doctor. ...Read more

See obstetrician: Folic acid does not make a person fat.
It is normal for it to take up to a year of unprotected sex to get pregnant. It would be prudent to see an obstetrician and take pre-natal vitamins and discuss your diet, as with your current habit you are likely to gain too much weight during pregnancy.
Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
