I am pretty sure I pee out of the hole that you use for tampons and I think it has a big effect on becoming pregnant, im not sure what to do from here?

See a doctor: The urethral opening (pee hole) is anatomically very close to the vagina and is actually inside the labia (lips) so you are probably normal but to be sure you need an exam. ...Read more

Found 2 tampons lodged inside me after having sex-1st pulled out next day & some cum came out w/ it-the 2nd wasn't found for 6 days-could I b pregnant?

Are you kidding?: You have given us no sexual, menstrual or ovulatory history. Do you really want us to jus guess if you are pregnant or not? Physicians would never speculate about such a major diagnosis. But, you do not need a doctor to tell you that any sperm in the vagina can cause pregnancy. Right? The presence of tampons would not ever act as any form of birth control. ...Read more

My period lasted for 6 days, was heavy for 2 days (filled super + tampons), red in color some clots. Still not sure if I could be pregnant?

Pregnancy unlikely: Having a normal, regular menstrual period means a woman is not pregnant. If a period was unusual or weird, and one is worried about pregnancy, one can do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. The tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex or later. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds can minimize your periods. Lysteda is a great new hormone free drug used to stop heavy periods.

If I had sex 13 days ago and I got my period like normal time, could I be pregnant?? It was heavy enough to wear pads and tampons. Am I pregnant?

If I had sex 13 days ago and I got my period like normal time, could I be pregnant?? It was heavy enough to wear pads and tampons. Am I pregnant?

No: If you had a regular period after unprotected sex, then it is a very safe assumption that that instance of sex did not lead to conception and pregnancy. Implantation bleeding (bleeding at the time of a brand new pregnancy) would be unusually light and is typically just a bit of spotting if anything at all. Rest assured that an abnormally heavy period would not be implantation bleeding. ...Read more

I'm on birth control. I had a very heavy period for 4 days and bled through my tampons, but it was a day late. And no pregnancy symptoms. Pregnant?

Pregnancy?: Birth control is not 100% - any time there is a question get a home pregnancy test. If you were recently on antibiotics this may make the birth control ineffective.

Good Luck ...Read more

Missed period should I be concerned I have missed my period for the past month had sex last week and three days later had light spotting for twelve hours didn't even need a pad or tampon. I have now missed another period, should I be concerned with pregna

Missed period should I be concerned I have missed my period for the past month had sex last week and three days later had light spotting for twelve hours didn't even need a pad or tampon. I have now missed another period, should I be concerned with pregna

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can always take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period.

There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you have a positive pregnancy test or if you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give you doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Can you get pregnant without penetration?

Can you get pregnant without penetration?

How likely is it to get pregnant from naked grinding? No penetration. No ejaculation.

Zero odd, but...: Considering high fastidious requirement for sperm survival to swim upstream to Fallopian tube to fertilize a timely waiting egg, your odd to conceive should be zero. Nonetheless, still do HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeat it in another 1 wk if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt since no known contraceptive bears a 100% success. ...Read more
