Tired of negative pregnancy tests. Crying every month. What can I do if no insurance?

It takes two: The cited average to achieve a desired pregnancy is 6 months. If more than a year, both potential parents would be considered for fertility evaluation. These are RARELY IF EVER covered by insurance in anyone. You must first understand that it is not necessarily your "fault". Fertility studies are not guaranteed to get you a healthy baby. There are other options to be a parent. ...Read more

Is it necessary to take Clomid (clomiphene) for second month i took it this month but no signs of pregnancy plzz tell what should I do next no insurance?

Is it necessary to take Clomid (clomiphene) for second month i took it this month but no signs of pregnancy plzz tell what should I do next no insurance?

Clomid (clomiphene): Mary, the real question is why are you taking clomid (clomiphene)? Do you have regular periods? If the woman is actually ovulating and she takes Clomid (clomiphene) it actually lowers her pregnancy success rateā€¦ google it. If you don't ovulate the Clomid (clomiphene) is in fact an inexpensive way to get that going.I understand you have no insurance-i'm new here so i don't even know if i'm allowed to send you my office number lto help. ...Read more

I had to wait 2 days after my old bc pack ended to get on a new bc. But I had sex before I knew my insurance quit covering it. Pregnancy risk?

I had to wait 2 days after my old bc pack ended to get on a new bc.  But I had sex before I knew my insurance quit covering it. Pregnancy risk?

Sounds confusing...: Birth control pills work the same way regardless of who pays for them (insurance company pays or you pay). If missing the first 2 pills of a new pack, there is an increased chance (but still a very small chance) of pregnancy that month. If worried, and if the regular withdrawal period doesn't come, one can do a home urine pregnancy test when starting next month's pack of pills. ...Read more

If you call your local medical society they can recommend where to go. If you are working does your employer offer health insurance? Find out, if you are not employed, see if you qualify for Obama care (the Affordable Health Care Act) law for health insurance. ...Read more

Hi I have no insurance took Clomid (clomiphene) 1st time don't want to take anymore no signs of pregnancy af due in 5 days does Clomid (clomiphene) will delay my af please possibl?

No easy answer: If you are not ovulating on your own, Clomid (clomiphene) is probably the best answer. If you did not ovulate on Clomid (clomiphene) the first month, your period may be delayed. There is some evidence that the supplements pregnitude or chiral balance (myo-inositol or d-chiro-inositol) may improve ovulation in some women, and should be safe to try. Suggestion: save your money, and try Clomid (clomiphene) again when you can. ...Read more

I am 3-5 weeks into pregnancy. I am a tourist and don't have insurance or enough money to see a doctor. I can get medication. What do you recommend?

Prenatal vitamins: If you are doing well, then you can probably wait till you return home to see a Dr. You should probably start prenatal vitamins however. That is available without a prescription at any drugstore/pharmacy. If there is a problem with your pregnancy and need to see a doctor without insurance, there are "urgent care" clinics that are less expensive than ERs that may be able to see you. ...Read more

I have been off the pill for insurance reasons for about two months now. I had unprotected sex, which led to ejaculation. I was on my second to last day of ovulation. "High chance of pregnancy". I took Plan-B an hour after it happened. ?

I have been off the pill for insurance reasons for about two months now. I had unprotected sex, which led to ejaculation. I was on my second to last day of ovulation. "High chance of pregnancy". I took Plan-B an hour after it happened. ?

Pregnancy unlikely: As long as plan B is taken within the recommended period, within the 1st 72 hours it is very effective. When taken within the first 24 hours it is even more effective. You do however need to be evaluated by your PCP soon to rule out any sexually transmitted infections. I would use barrier contraception i.e. condoms to prevent pregnancy and any infections. ...Read more

Can i get a knee scope during the second trimester or my pregnancy.Cant wait because of insurance policy after i graduate?

Can i get a knee scope during the second trimester or my pregnancy.Cant wait because of insurance policy after i graduate?

Yes: Most surgery, including knee surgery can be done in the second trimester safely. Finding someone to do it can be a problem, as many docs (non-ob) are nervous about operating on pregnant women unless it is really necessary. Even if it is safe however, we don't like to operate on anyone unless it is necessary anyway. If you need the surgery, get it, though "insurance necessity" is not always valid. ...Read more

Late period: Did you have unprotected sex? Do you usually have regular periods? Is it possible that you miscalculated your cycle? If you have regular periods & are 18 days late, a home pregnancy test should be positive by now if pregnant. Unexplained late period could be due to stress, or cld require medical attention. Only way to know is see an Ob ASAP to evaluate. Don't delay due to insurance! ...Read more
