Can ovulation happen during your period or day after? Took ovulation Test today and positive. Ended period yesterday

Can ovulation happen during your period or day after? Took ovulation Test today and positive. Ended period yesterday

Depends: Ovulation can occur as soon as 7 days after a period starts. So if the period lasts 7 days, then ovulation could occur at the end of the period. In that case the cycle length would be 21 days because the period always starts 14 days after ovulation. The average cycle is 28 to 30 days which means ovulation happens on cycle day 14 to 16. The first day of the period is the first day of the new cycle ...Read more

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

Ended period last week now experiencing flu/cold like symptoms & some nauseous. Is this normal after ending a period? Or what can this be?

Ended period last week now experiencing flu/cold like symptoms & some nauseous. Is this normal after ending a period? Or what can this be?

No: It may be totally unrelated to your cycle. If you are not experiencing discharge or abdominal pain and you had a normal cycle then more likely a virus or cold. Treat symptomatically to see if you improve over the next 2-3 days. If not see your doctor. All the best for good health. ...Read more

Could be endometrios: Endometriosis or other, you need to see a gyn as you can get on pain meds or bcpills, and you need an ultrasound and most likely you are going to need laparoscopy to see what the problem is so you can get the proper diagnosis treatment, so see a gyn no need to suffer. ...Read more

Evaluation: Abnormal uterine bleeding is not uncommon in young women, even when accompanied by hormonal or mood symptoms. Some of your symptoms may or may not even be related. You could have ovulatory bleeding with a viral syndrome, stress and breakthrough bleeding, early pregnancy, a vaginal infection, or other less common or more worrisome issues. Please contact a local provider for an exam and evaluation. ...Read more

Ended period 2 days ago. Use tampons. Now have a dull ache off and on in vagina. What could this be? Is it normal to have occasional pain there,

Hard to say: It is hard to guess what might be causing this. If this is not typical for you after each cycle then we can not conclude that it is normal. If the pain continues the next step is a physical exam by a gynecologist. ...Read more

Ended period 9/24 and my BF ejaculated inside of me on 9/25, 9/26 and 9/27. Took Plan B on 9/27 and my period is 6 days late now could I b pregnant?

Yes: Pregnancy has been documented from unprotected sex on any day of a woman's cycle including during menses. Plan B is not 100% effective in stopping pregnancy. Wait a while and do some OTC urine pregnancy tests. They are more often falsely negative early in pregnancy but once they turn positive the test is valid. ...Read more

Dark brown discharge and cramping on and off. Ended period about 1 week ago. What is it? A cyst? Only had protected sex once after period. Scared

Dark brown discharge and cramping on and off. Ended period about 1 week ago. What is it? A cyst? Only had protected sex once after period. Scared

Hormones: It sounds as if you hormones are a little imbalanced. It's not necessarily a cyst. If you are worried about a cyst, however, you might want to see your doctor and have an ultrasound in case there's something there. If you're worried you could be pregnant, then take a home pregnancy test. They are fast and accurate. Good luck. ...Read more

Ended period friday&unprotected sex Sunday. Spotted Tuesday&today (Wed). Had mild abdonial pain&breast hurt on side sometimes Another period? Pregnant?

Too early to tell: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Ended period friday, unprotected sex Sunday, today is Tuesday pinkish while I wipe, side of breast hurts sometimes should I worry? Pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly, about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Whenever a fertile woman has sex with a fertile guy, there's a chance of pregnancy. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 1 week after my period ended (period was 23rd-28th Dec, I had sex 3rd Jan) light spotting yesterday but heavy today. Pregnant??

Too soon to test: After fertilization it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. Given that you are bleeding suggests you are having a period. ...Read more

Back to School?: Remember what you learned about how babies are made in health class that it takes one to five days after sex for the pregnancy to be conceived and then it is fen to fourteen days after that for the fetus to be big enough to be sharing blood and chemicals with the mother's body? That any symptoms before the fetus is this big cannot possibly be related to pregnancy? Don't you remember this? ...Read more

21, f, I have muscular dystrophy. Have been having chills, hot skin and night sweats. No fever. Ended period 1 wk ago; been happening for 2wks.

Any fever?: Might want to have a chest x-ray done and a urinalysis. When relating your history on heath tap its ok to be more specificic about the type of muscular dystrophy you have. If you have, for instance fsh dystrophy and you have these symptoms i'd look for aspiration pneumonia before thinking about uti. Use of hydrocodone and Ativan (lorazepam) can increase your risk of micro-aspiration. Due to sedation. ...Read more

I am 31 and just ended my period on the 17th of april and I just started again tonight on the 27th of april. Is there something wrong with me?

Maybe: When all your systems are working perfectly, periods should occur about the same time every month. (every 28 days +/-). Bleeding in between can signal that something isn't working right. If it happens once, I wouldn't worry. If it happens repeatedly, you should have it checked out. ...Read more

Can't know for sure: Breakthrough bleeding midcycle is common. It is common to have some spotting with ovulation. Unless you miss your period, or start having spotting multiple times a month, it is likely nothing to worry about. ...Read more
