It depends: An egg will live for only about 24 hours while sperm may live in the reproductive tract for many days. Pregnancy may occur once the egg meets the sperm. Then it takes a bit of time for the pair to travel to the uterus and implant into the endometrial lining. Only once this occurs will a pregnancy test become positive, which occurs about 2 weeks, at the least, after conception. ...Read more

How quickly following stopping birth control can I get pregnant?

Usually 4-6 weeks: When you stop birth control pills, it often takes 4-6 weeks to get back to a normal cycle. In some women, it takes a lot longer than that.

Only about 15% get pregnant with any one cycle, so don't count on getting preg right away. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant 6 weeks after giving birth?

Fertile Ground: If you'd-a asked my grandmother, she'd-a told you that you could get pregnant while you were already pregnant. I think what she meant was that an unprotected fertile woman could get pregnant any time, depending on when she ovulates, which is quite variable after childbirth. So, yes, it can happen,even If you're breast feeding and it's "only" six weeks. Advice: give it a rest for as few months ...Read more

I had sex with my husband after 1 week giving birth it is possible to get pregnant?

Unlikely: One week after birth is almost certainly unlikley to yield a pregnancy, it's more so possible at the two to three mark. Remember having vaginal intercourse so soon after delivery also isn't ideal. Your body is healing due to changes of the uterus from pregnancy and is at increased risk of infection. Also if you had any tearing of the vagina during delivery, your body needs time to heal. ...Read more

How likely am i to get pregnant after having sex after 3 weeks of giving birth?

Not very: It's ok to wait after giving birth to have sex again. 3 weeks seems a little short (we usually say 6 weeks), but if you are healed and it doesn't hurt, it is probably safe enough to have sex. It would be very unlikely that your hormone cycle would start back up soon enough to be releasing an egg 3 weeks after delivery, even if you are not breast feeding (bf). 4-6 weeks is more likely; longer if bf. ...Read more

Unlikely: I never like to say never, but this is close. It is definitely possible to get pregnant after giving birth without ever having another period, but 5 1/2 weeks is extremely early and the Plan B is an extra layer of insurance. Please use protection going forward. ...Read more

I have a condition call vagisms and i was wondering could it cause problem giving birth? Could having cysts on my ovaries cause I am trying to get pregnant but it seems like im not having any luck i don't know if the vagisms have anything to do with it o

I have a condition call vagisms and i was wondering could it cause problem giving birth? Could having cysts on my ovaries cause I am trying to get pregnant but it seems like im not having any luck i don't know if the vagisms have anything to  do with it o

Cysts : Cysts on the ovaries typically means you are ovulating (producing eggs), which is usually a good sign. As long as they appeared to be normal cysts that should not be a problem. I am not sure if you mean vaginitis (infectiono of the vagina) or vaginismus (painful spasms of the vagina). Vaginitis can be a problem with fertility if it was from a sexually transmitted infection such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, which can lead to scarring of the tubes. If you have vaginismus, which is painful spasms of the vagina, it usually does not cause problems with fertility unless it is impairing your ability to have intercourse. When you have intercourse, stay flat on your back for 10-15 minutes with your legs bent up to retain sperm. Be sure you are eating a healthful diet and not on any harmful medications. Be sure you are at a healthful weight (not too high or too low). If you still can't get pregnant, you will need to see your gynecologist or a fertility specialist again. ...Read more
