Hard to say: Conception rates are approximately 15 to 20% per cycle in couples that have no issues conceiving. Since you're only 12 days from ovulation, potentially you can try your pregnancy test but may not be positive for another 2 to 4 days. ...Read more

Wait.: Wait for your scheduled period, assuming your periods are regular. If you miss your period then it makes more sense to have checked. I do not think few days will make a difference. ...Read more

My husband came in me 2 days after my period and then twice more, 3 days after my period. is it possible to get pregnant? how long until I can take PT

My husband came in me 2 days after my period and then twice more, 3 days after my period. is it possible to get pregnant? how long until I can take PT

Sure, it's possible: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Probably: Those pregnancy tests are pretty sensitive to early pregnancy but on the other hand each person is a unique individual in a unique situation. Wouldn't hurt to wait a few more days to test but I also know some women who will test every morning for several days. But that's probably over-doing it. Just wait a few days and test again. Let your doctor know. There may be other factors to consider. ...Read more

Can you let me know how many days after my period should I wait until i take that home pregnancy test?

Pregnancy test : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. 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

Withdrawel bleeding: When you are on an estrogen and/or a progestin containing pill, the hormones prevent bleeding from the uterus. Stopping these hormones usually cause bleeding even if you are in the middle of a pill package. To prevent this take your pills as directed, and use protection if you have missed more than one pill. To be safe, for the remaining time of this pack and 3w eeks into next pack. ...Read more

Unclear plan: It is not clear why you are taking the pill and the IUD. Sometimes this is done when one experiences breakthrough bleeding while on Mirena (levonorgestrel). If that is not the reason then I would clarify with the prescribing physician why you are doing both things. If you are not satisfied with the level of bleeding then they can discuss alternatives. They can also check that your IUD is in the correct position ...Read more
