Why during my ovulation days i get pregnancy symptoms almost every month is the same thing but i end up not getting pregnant is that normal?

Why during my ovulation days i get pregnancy symptoms almost every month is the same thing but i end up not getting pregnant is that normal?

No Pregnancy Symptom: I think this is that you are very much misinformed. There are no specific pregnancy symptoms. There are hormone fluctuation symptoms that are hard to distinguish between period symptoms and times of hormonal fluctuation. Ovulation occurs because of hormone fluctuation. These are normal symptoms and do not in any way represent pregnancy.

Sperm plus egg: The length of sex is meaningless in the question of fertility. Sperm in the vagina on the five days leading to ovulation are the sperm most likely to cause pregnancy. It only takes one sperm and one egg.

Can a woman become pregnant during perimenopause?

Yes: Until a woman has had no menstrual periods for a full year, it is possible that she could unexpectedly ovulate and become pregnant. That said, fertility is certainly decreased at perimenopause.

Does it make sense to get a liposuction just before getting pregnant?

Does it make sense to get a liposuction just before getting pregnant?

No: I would strongly recommend you wait until after pregnancy before you consider any type of body contouring procedure. Your body will change with pregnancy and may require a different contouring procedure such as an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck.

Do you think it could be a waste to get liposuction before getting pregnant?

Do you think it could be a waste to get liposuction before getting pregnant?

May be.: If you are planning on pregnancies in the near future, best to wait on having any type of body contouring surgery at this point. Complete pregnancies, achieve a long-term stable weight, and then evaluate to see whether you will need the help of a plastic surgeon to achieve your goals. Best wishes.

Can I get pregnant from precum, and what are the chances of getting pregnant from precum?

Can I get pregnant from precum, and what are the chances of getting pregnant from precum?

Here are some ...: The odd to conceive from per-cum is probably zero, but no one can guarantee to say it in 100% manner so to serve political correctness and professional self-protection since there is still few sperms in pre-cum. Nonetheless, do HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st was (-) and still in doubt. More, seek pro-evaluation & counseling.

I have been trying to get pregnant and I'm not getting pregnant. Does this mean I can't have children ?

I have been trying to get pregnant and I'm not getting pregnant. Does this mean I can't have children 
?

Not necessarily: We usually tell women that are trying to conceive not to be concerned about a problem until they have been trying to get pregnant for at least a year. This means having regular sex around the time of your most fertile period which is 14 days after the first day of your period. If you have been trying for a year then both you and your partner need to get a check up and labs. Good luck

I can't touch anything anymore. I get very anxious about someone getting pregnant after i masturbate. What do I do?

I can't touch anything anymore. I get very anxious about someone getting pregnant after i masturbate. What do I do?

Reassurance Trap?: Is this a thought (fear) that's getting stuck in ur head ; causes u 2 feel very anxious ; worried? If so, then there's no point in any of us giving u a logical answer b/c it won't reassure u. Pregnancy can occur only if sperm actually find their way in2 the vagina. So if you're worrying about pregnancy when there's no chance of this, consider speaking w/anxiety/ocd expert. And check anxietybc.Org.

I'm 32 years old and it being a year trying to get pregnant, I want to know if hysteroscopy can help me getting pregnant?

Yes: Hysteroscopy can definitely help you with evaluation of your ability to conceive. Sometimes there are septations or tissue curtains in the uterus that prevent pregnancy from occurring and a hysteroscopy can detect that. Also, at hysteroscopy, the tubes can be evaluated to make sure there is flow or patency of the tubes (combined with laparoscopy). If you've been trying for a year, I recommend

After trying to get pregnant, when is a good time to go to the dr to see what is going on to why your not getting pregnant?

Age related: If you are under 30 and have had unprotected intercourse for one year then it is time to go to the MD to obtain and evaluation. since you are only 20, there is plenty of time to try. Women over age 30 to 35 have less time to wait and are encouraged to see the fertility MD after at least 6 months of unprotected intercourse instead of one year.
