Terbinafine halflife: Thank you for your question. When used for short-term use (2 weeks), Terbinafine's half-life is defined as 36 hours, therefore it exits the bloodstream after 72 hours. When used for 90 days for nail infection, Terbinafine may be present in the nail plate for much longer, but not the bloodstream. Varying underlying conditions may alter this and assessment by a medical professional is helpful. ...Read more

If: If you consider the first day of your period "day 1" of your menstrual cycle, then "days 13-16" are the days when ovulation is most likely to occur. This can vary month to month and can vary among women. You may have been a little early... Or not! sperm can stay alive in the vagina/uterus/fallopian tubes for 3 days. There are other subtle symptoms that can help you know when you are ovulating such as:
- mild abdominal cramps
- clear, slippery vaginal discharge - not unlike egg whites (as opposed to thicker, cloudy, sticky secretions when you are not ovulating)
- slight increase in body temperature
you can also purchase a fertility kit at the store that measures hormones in your urine and can help you predict ovulation. Good luck! ...Read more

It may be better to use an ovulation predictor kit. See an infertility specialist if you are having trouble concieving: there is a lot that can be done to help. ...Read more

I never had a regular period it might come every 4 or 5 months, when it comes it stays from 15 days to a month max but this time its reaching 2 months?

See MD for Rx: When menses are very infrequent, it is most likely that you are not ovulating on a regular basis and this can cause a hormone imbalance. Most common causes are polycystic ovarian syndrome, thyroid dysfunction, anorexia, or extreme exercise and low body weight. If you have been bleeding for 2 months, you need to be checked for xs blood loss and the bleeding can be stopped with estrogen/bcp. ...Read more

I have an irregular period, it comes on for months and stays on but just recently it went off. 3 day later I had protected sex. Should I be nervous?

NoNeedToBeNervous: Why are you nervous. You had protected sex. I supposed condom was used. If so there is no risk of pregnancy. But I don't understand what you mean by your period comes on for months. Do you mean it is continuos bleeding. I suggest you consult a Gynecologist and get checked. You may need Birth Control Pills to regulate your period and will also prevent unwanted pregnancy. ...Read more

Prob. Ovulating: You probably ovulated - you should be looking for a 0.5 to 1 degree rise in basal body temperature (bbt) from the first half of your cycle to the second half, going up just after you ovulate. The rise is more important than the numbers. Take BBT before moving out of bed in the morning. If BBT is not working for you ovulation predictor kits are more straightforward if you have regular cycles. ...Read more
