I have recently suffered my second pregnancy loss and would like to speak to someone on how soon to see a perinatologist?
Need more info: Have you been under a care of an OBGYN for these pregnancy losses, and if so has s/he done a workup?

I had two periods last month, and now I am almost a week late on this months cycle. Should I go talk to my Dr about taking a pregnancy test?
Hello I would really love to talk about my period because today I've started this morning and it just stopped please sir would you tell me if this is about a pregnancy or something please contact me today or as soon as possible?
Many reasons: A formal consultation would be really helpful for you, I think. There are lots of reasons why a young woman might get unexpected menstrual bleeding, such as a hormonal dysregulation. A gynecological exam would also help to make sure that the bleeding is actually from the uterus and not the cervix or vagina. If you missed a period then definitely get a pregnancy test. Contraception can be helpful. ...Read more

Is progesterone safe to take at 8 weeks of pregnancy? Will it cause any birth defects? Progesterone level at 8.9. Still waiting to talk to my obgyn.
Progesterone: I use progesterone fairly frequently for a low progesterone. There are some risk, but honestly I've been using 1st trimester progesterone for a very long time and never had an issue. I usually treat for level less than 8, but some OB's will treat with higher levels. I prefer prometrium (micronized progesterone). ...Read more

Urine pregnancy test: If a woman had sex (no birth control) 5 days ago, she can get pregnant. Pregnancy is more likely if the sex was some day between 1 week after the start of the last period, through a few days past the middle of the monthly cycle. Since many women have trouble figuring the days, a woman should just check a urine pregnancy test if her next period is missed or is different than her usual periods. ...Read more
Low. ...: Low sperm motility at 25% alone already indicates much lower than the "normal" probability to impregnate a proper female - of course, not impossible. Yet, the volume, viscosity, liquefaction time, total sperm count, sperm concentration, sperm maturity, etc. Of semen also provides some useful insights into the probability of a man's fertility.

I know this might be a weird question but I had a partial hysterectomy done and am now having serious pregnancy symptoms what could this be?
Ovaries: Ovaries are the sources of hormones of pregnancy and menstrual cycle. When a uterus is removed, many of the symptoms of a period are gone, but not all. The ovaries are still going to cause bloating, tender breasts and even a phantom cramping sensation. Pregnancy can never be ruled out so if you are worried take a test. Likely neg. ...Read more
