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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

How likely is it to get pregnant on axithromicin and birth control.. Is that an antibiotic that affects birth control?

How likely is it to get pregnant on axithromicin and birth control.. Is that an antibiotic that affects birth control?

Not really: I never make guarantees, but your chances of a problem are extremely low. Although some antibiotics can reduce the efficacy of birth control, Azithromycin isn't one of the known offenders. It's never a bad idea to use a back up method when you are on antibiotics, but i wouldn't be worried. If your period doesn't come on time, take a pregnancy test to be sure. ...Read more

Depends: If the Mirena (levonorgestrel) device is in place and not expelled the risk of pregnancy while on antibiotic is very low.Always check after menstrual period to make certain that the threads still protrude from the cervix/do not to pull on the threads as doing so may displace the intrauterine system.

Am i likely to get pregnant while on the pill but 48 hrs after finishing an antibiotic?

Am i likely to get pregnant while on the pill but 48 hrs after finishing an antibiotic?

Not likely: Don’t guess. Take a test. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

When sexually active and using a weeks course of antibiotic cream could i get caught pregnant?

Not sure I get it: Are you wondering if the antibiotic cream would prevent pregnancy? It would not do anything about conception possibilities. So, if you hope you did - you don't have to worry. If you hope you didn't - good luck this time - use real protection in the future. ...Read more

I'm on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD and taking a antibiotic (Sulfamethoxazole). Can I get pregnant?

I'm on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD and taking a antibiotic (Sulfamethoxazole). Can I get pregnant?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD: No the antibiotics will not decrease the effectiveness of the Mirena (levonorgestrel). But like any contraceptive method, the IUD does have a low baseline rate of pregnancy. So yes you may get pregnant (very low risk) but if you do, it won't be because of the antibiotics. ...Read more

Can I still get pregnant if I took plan b tues morning (11 am) and then took Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) antibiotic Thurs.( 7 pm) ?

Can I still get pregnant if I took plan b tues morning (11 am) and then took Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) antibiotic Thurs.( 7 pm) ?

Yes you can: If you're ovulating & having relations with a fertile male then, pregnancy's ALWAYS POSSIBLE no matter if you're on Plan C-Z. Nothing is 100% geared against pregnancy except living on Mars right now with a bunch of Dr. Seuss's Sneetches. BUT, even that will change in the 2035 so beware (2018 if the Inspiration Mars crew discovers there's a Starbucks on the surface as they boomerang around Mars)! ...Read more

I'm on the implant, but I have been taking amoxicillin for tonsillitis, as it is an antibiotic could i get pregnant during unprotected intercourse?

Doubtful: If you get pregnant it is very unlikely to be due to the fact that you are taking amoxicillin. This should not interfere with birth control which is never perfect. ...Read more

Hi, can I be pregnant if I'm taking birth control pills cryselle long time and antibiotic clindamycin 2 days and had unprotected sex? Tnx

Low probability : of getting pregnant, although any antibiotic can reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills, less though with clindamycin, more with others as tetracycline. However this behooves you to use extra method of contraception if you are using any medicine that interacts with birth control pilks. Good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, good luck ...Read more

I think I am starting to get a sore throat. Should i get an antibiotic or is it likely a virus? My wife is pregnant and i don't want it to affect her.

I think I am starting to get a sore throat. Should i get an antibiotic or is it likely a virus? My wife is pregnant and i don't want it to affect her.

Take precaution: At least 90% of our so-called sore throats are due to viruses. The incubation period is few days such that by the time symptoms are felt, it has been passed on. Nevertheless, if fever, chills or more symptoms occur see your doctor. Furthermore, it always is best to protect others from exposure if they have not had it yet and that is why we suggest flu shots for the flu. ...Read more

Pre-ejaculate, is a clear fluid that is released at the tip of the penis (prior to ejaculation). It contains a small concentration of sperm (less than semen). There is a possibility that pregnancy can occur with pre-ejaculate. ...Read more

Will i get oregnant if i just got off the nuvaring and taking the antibiotic levofloxacin?

Unlikely: No birth control is 100% effective anyway, but the nuvaring, if used correctly, is very effective. Levofloxacin does not interfere with how well the NuvaRing works. ...Read more
