Could stress cause me not start my period on time. My periods haven't been on time all the time after i had my daughter and i can't afford to get on birth control yet and my boyfriend and i don't use condoms.
You : You can get free condoms at most clinics, such as planned parenthood. Hormone changes can cause late periods, but since you are having unprotected intercourse then you should take a pregnancy test to be sure. Please be seen at a clinic and have them advise you; there are many means of free birth control if you desire it. ...Read more

Okay I have no health insurance. I have problem every time i get ready to come on my monthly. I get boils in places on my body. What can I do?
No reason: Despite my misgivings on obamacare, you should be able to get some insurance coverage free or with federal subsidy. I am concerned that you may have an impaired immune system or possible Progesterone allergy. You need to have an immune work up if hormonal effects have been ruled out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have gone off the pill for 2 months and have got my initial period but have had nothing else. I am going on holiday this weekend and was wanting to know if I have to can I go back onto the pill so I can control my periods while on holiday?
Pregnancy test first: When a woman misses her period the first thing she wants to do is a pregnancy test, if she is sexually active. Ovulation after stopping birth control pills can be rather erratic. A pregnancy test can become positive as early as 1 week after conception. If a pregnancy has been ruled out, birth control pills can delay a menstrual period, but may not do so successfully. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can i get pregnant even though everytime my husband and I have sex the semen runs right out. I lay on my back and side to try and aid pregnancy.
Yes: Laying down after sex shouldn't make any difference to your chances of getting pregnant - some semen will leak out of your vagina anyway, but it's the sperm that get through your cervical mucus then up through your uterus to your fallopian tubes that have a chance of reaching your egg. At 22 it should take less than a year to conceive - see a rei if you're not prego, or sooner if you're irregular. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 6 months pregnant and I just cut my finger, I put coffee on the cut, will this hurt my baby?
If the both of us were masterbating and my boyfriend cums on my stomach, while I continue to finger myself not knowing if it went in. Am I pregnant?
I had my first baby 6 months ago, and after that i lost my drive for sex. what can i do to restore my desire for sex, what drug or food do i take.
It's complicated: Women's sex drives are fueled by many different factors. Certainly hormones play a big role, and yours aren't back to normal yet. But also, fatigue, stress, depression, diet, exercise, all play a role. If it's been a while since you've had sex, you may want to make time to get "reacquainted" with your husband, with non-intercourse touching (like massage) and see where that takes you. ...Read more
I love yoga and practice it every day. This past week, i have been attempting handstands. The muscle on my midspine will not stop twitching. Why?
Twitching of muscle: You have potentially compressed a nerve in your back during one the poses. Apply heat and ice alternating 20 minutes on and 40 minutes off ( that is using ice one hour, then heat the next hour) to the area of your spine where you feel the twitching. A visit to a chiropractor may help as well. ...Read more

Unlikely: if you are taking them every day it is unlikely, but to be certain, check a pregnancy test.
