Fertility specialists, have a 1 cent polyp in uterus. Do u recommend trying to get pregnant first or go straight to removal and try after?

The six days of fertility widow can you get pregnant in any day of those six days?

The six days of fertility widow can you get pregnant in any day of those six days?

Not exactly: Pregnancy can start on one day (or 1-2 days) during each cycle, because the egg only lives for a day or two. No egg = no baby. Sperm can live several days, so having sex from 1 to 5 days before the egg is ready, up to and including the day of ovulation, can lead to pregnancy... but the pregnancy can only begin on the 1-2 days that the egg is live and ready. That's why fertile days are 6-7 days. ...Read more

I'm 21 years old, and my boyfriend and I are going to try and have a baby. Well he busted in me on my first day of fertility, can I be pregnant?

Maybe/not: The quoted average is 6 months until achieving a desired pregnancy. That varies from the first effort out to a year, so you may be there or it may take some time. It would be normal if it takes longer but after a year without success an evaluation of both by a fertility center would be worthwhile. ...Read more

My fiance and I had a condom break. He did finish and we did not realize it broke till after. Today is the 1st day of my fertility. Can I get pregnant?

Yes: I don't know how you are determining ovulation, but if you had a condom break during the fertile period, it is possible that you could get pregnant. If you don't want to get pregnant, and it has been less than 5 days since the broken condom, you can call around to different pharmacies to see if any of them dispense Plan B birth control. ...Read more

I had 22mm thick womb lining on cycle day 25 and was trying to get pregnant with no luck could thsis be a reason why does this effect fertility?

Not sure: 22mm is very very thick for day 25. If you are skipping periods (not regular, for example if you go 2-3 months or more between periods) then you may not be ovulating (and that can decrease fertility), but the thickened lining itself would not be a cause of infertility ...Read more

Is menses a low fertility day? Is it a friendly environment to sperm? Does sperm survive 7 days if during menses? Can you get pregnant on 1st d of menses?

School: I am happy you are asking. But this is pretty simple stuff. A female does not get pregnant during menses. She is fertile during ovulation.

Hi! What is the fastest someone can get pregnant with Fertility meds? Would be awesome, if happened in 1-2 months. ;) thanks.

2weeks: Most "fertility meds" are used to aid ovulation (the release of an egg). If medications are started and ovulation occurs you could be pregnant in about two weeks (although it might take a little longer to be able to confirm pregnancy). Sometimes people don't ovulate on their first dose of medications like clomid (clomiphene) and sometimes it takes several ovulatory cycle tries for couples to conceive ...Read more
