Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Hi there, I have a problem. I have been trying to get a baby 4 the past 6 months bt I can't get pregnant. Am worried becoz I track my ovulation days wel?

See Your Gyn: If you've tried for 6 months it's probably time to see your gyn for routine eval and testing. They'll ensure ovulation, help confirm fertility, document patent (open) fallopian tubes, & check your partner's semen for viable sperm. You're young enough that you can buy an lh kit (ovulation kit) & check this first, but there's nothing wrong in seeing a professional & updating your exam. Take care. ...Read more

A number of things: A number of things can cause irregular or heavy menses - you should see your physician and if at all possible keep track of when you have your period, how many days you bleed, etc for 3-4 months when you see them. They can help determine if there is something wrong or not. ...Read more

I can't get pregnant and my periods are always very late with negative preg results. I am currently 18 days late but I am not pregnant. I need help?

Unable to conceive: Period irregularity is not uncommon, but it appears you get a period about every 6 -8 weeks. OTC ovulation tests may help you if you are trying to conceive, since there is a short window for conception. The egg is viable for only 24 hours after ovulation and sperm lives only 3-5 days (max 7) in the vaginal tract. If it has been > 1 year trying seek fertility input. F/u w/doc ...Read more

I don't have my period for 4 to 6 months at a time and when I do they are very light and last for about 3 days is there something wrong with me? And is this the reason I can't get pregnant?

Oligomenorrhea: Clearly only 2-3 cycles per year is abnormal. It's more common with hormonal contraception but it sounds like you would like to get pregnant. You're not ovulating since you're not having regular menses. It's best to see a gyn to start an evaluation. They may refer you to an infertility specialist (rei) depending on their findings. Good luck. ...Read more

Female Fertility: Let's start at the beginning. The period is the opposite of the ovulation. The period is the cleaning out of the uterus after an egg is not impregnated during or after ovulation. Ovulation occurs usually just shy of half way through a cycle. Your best bet to get pregnant is from intercourse the five days prior to the event of ovulation: the egg being released from the ovary. ...Read more

You sure I can't get pregnant having unprotected sex 6 days before ovulation? I had sex at 1:30 pm and my fertile days are 08/24-29

You sure I can't get pregnant having unprotected sex 6 days before ovulation? I had sex at 1:30 pm and my fertile days are 08/24-29

Not impossible: Anytime you have unprotected sex and are fertile, you are at risk for pregnancy. Although 6 days before ovulation date is unlikely to cause pregnancy, it is still possible. You can guess when you ovulate but never know for sure, thus the possibility is there. That's why we always recommend "protection" if pregnancy is not desired. ...Read more

I have high dheas 650. All other hormones are normal and I get my period every 28 days. I can't get pregnant. Is this bc of dheas and how can I fix it?

Age 38: At age 38 fertility rates will be lower. Consider seeing ann obgyn for fertility testing. An AMH test could be considered to determine if there enough eggs left. Ovulation testing should be done as an elevated DHEAS can sometimes inhibit ovulation. A semen analysis should be done to make sure there are no male issues. ...Read more

Infertility: The stress of trying to get pregnant (monitoring your cycle, planning the times to have sex, worrying about the outcome) is one of the greatest stresses a couple can face. You need a way to unwind, relax, and let go of the outcome. I think the best way to do this is through meditation--spend 10-20 minutes each day, comfortable position, just watch your breathing in and out, just watching. ...Read more

Been trying to conceive since I had my mirena (levonorgestrel) removed, we have had intercourse every 1-3 days, how come I can't get pregnant?

12 months: If you have been trying for more than 12 months then it is time to get some help. If it has been less than that then just keep trying. 90% of couples will get pregnant over this time period. The return to your baseline fertility occurs about 7 days after Mirerna IUD removal. ...Read more

Emergency: Contraception is designed to be used after an episode of failed contraception - not before. If you should not get pregnant for the next 28 days - don't take shortcuts. Either use protection consistently or don't have sex. ...Read more

I read that there are no safe days if you don't want to get prego. What are the chances of being pregnant say on CD 1-3?

I read that there are no safe days if you don't want to get prego. What are the chances of being pregnant say on CD 1-3?

Low chances...: The reason why there are "no safe days" is because there is always a small chance of random ovulation. In a normal cycle, the expected ovulation is roughly two weeks after the beginning of your period. So pregnancy after sex on cycle days 1-3 is rare, but can happen. ...Read more

Do a product called naturacure get a women pregnant fast in days because I beebn seeing a lot of women with this product and I don't know if itss safe?

Unknown safety. ..: If you're 22 you have a low chance of having difficulty getting pregnant! take a prenatal vitamin 800 micrograms of folic acid. I checked out the website naturacure. Net and it contains 15 herbs. We don't know if it's safe or if it works. It's "award winning" with no awards listed, and "98% effective" - they refer to chinese clinical studies but don't list any. They say don't take when pregnant. ...Read more

If I still didn't get pregnant yet could it be bad timing or I'm not doing it on my fertile days?

If I still didn't get pregnant yet could it be bad timing or I'm not doing it on my fertile days?

Maybe: How long have you been trying? Are you having regular periods? How often are you having intercourse? All these are factors in answering your question. If your periods are regular and you are having intercourse at least once a week the likelihood of pregnancy is high within a year. If you still haven't become pregnant after 1 year, it is time to see an infertility specialist. ...Read more

Haven't received a period in 2 months I just spotted for the days I was suppose to get one. Just got off bc can I be pregnant?

Posible: If you are having unprotected sex and are not on birth control, you could get pregnant. Often, once bc stops, it may take some time to regulate back to a normal cycle. Often the bc itself helps regulate women who have abnormal cycles, so if it persists, see your gyn, best wishes. ...Read more

After missed period: A blood test may be positive as soon as one day after a missed period. Home pregnancy test may be positive one day after a missed period, but a negative result at that time does not rule out pregnancy. It is better to do the home test 4-5 after a missed period, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the package carefully. ...Read more

I haven't got my period for 38 days and I don't want to get pregnant?

Need to clarify...: Did you have unprotected sex in the last month? Do you have regular periods each month? If both answers are yes, then you are at risk of pregnancy and should get tested now. Go visit a doctor early to discuss your options. If you're pregnant and don't want to be, you can adopt/abort. If you're not pregnant and you don't want to be, the same doctor can help you get better contraception. ...Read more
