How long after d&c will I get pregnant?  been trying for yr to get pregnant, so had d&c done to help me get pregnant,Plus being put on fertility pills

Can happen anytime: Typically a D&C doesn't increase your chances of becoming pregnant. And fertility, if it's going to happen, can happen right away (4-6 weeks) after having a D&C. If you haven't been able to conceive, I'm assuming your doctor checked your weight, your thyroid, and your pituitary if you've been trying for a long time. You're on fertility pills, as you say, so your own ob/gyn should be able help ...Read more

Fertility blend is such an unproven product, in spite of what it says on their website. ...Read more

I’m in my fertility window and I’m on prenatal pills. I’ve been having unprotected intercourse during my fertility. How possible can i get pregnant?

I’m in my fertility window and I’m on prenatal pills. I’ve been having unprotected intercourse during my fertility. How possible can i get pregnant?

Sure, it's possible: Fertile couples having sex in their "fertile window" have the possibility of getting pregnant. If they are young, healthy, and fertile, they often get pregnant within 4-5 months of steady sex. One can look at it as a 20-25% chance of getting pregnant each month... but what does that mean? Mathematical numbers have little meaning to an individual because she may be the lucky one or the unlucky one. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. There aren't good studies on this. Some of the slim quick products contain chaste tree. Chaste tea may increase increase menstrual flow.
