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

Had an ectopic pregnancy, removed the left tube on 2/28. What should I do to figure out whether I can get pregnant on my own? I.e.How do I know whether my right ovary is functioning well and has eggs?

Had an ectopic pregnancy, removed the left tube on 2/28. What should I do to figure out whether I can get pregnant on my own? I.e.How do I know whether my right ovary is functioning well and has eggs?

3 months: You should avoid pregnancy for 3 months, simply to give your body a chance to recover from surgery. However, I would not be concerned about the right ovary not functioning. Your gynecologist should be able to tell you if it looked normal, though, presuming it did, it should work fine. ...Read more

Can a woman with 46 xy chromosones get pregnant through donor egg / ivf? And if so is there any risk during the pregnancy of being unsuccessful? Thx

Can a woman with 46 xy chromosones get pregnant through donor egg / ivf? And if so is there any risk during the pregnancy of being unsuccessful? Thx

Genetic male: A phenotypic woman with genotype 46, xy is likely suffering from complete or partial androgen insensitivity, formerly known as testicular feminization. These patients lack a uterus, and usually have a blind-ending vagina. The gonads present in the patient are testicles, and not ovaries. The patient would need to utilize a donor egg and surrogate mother for the zygote. ...Read more

Had sex 21 of cycle. Cycle 26 d.Oculation meybe on 13d becouse liquid like white of egg. No ejaculation. Meybe pregnancy? If she get menstrual isn't pregn?

Probably not preg.: If ovulation was around day 13 and sex was day 21. Period started on day 26? And there was not ejaculation, then she is most likely not pregnant. If she has monthly periods, and she hasn't started yet. .. Wait a few days or what ever is "normal" for her.. .. If she has a periods = not pregnant. If she's late (doesn't start) = do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

How long after sex does the implantation process occur? Could the egg already have implanted 3-4 days after sex to get a positive pregnancy test day 5?

Usually day 6: Humans are not as predictable as we would like so ovulation may have happened early or implantation maybe could have occurred early. I would not discount the possibility of an early pregnancy ...Read more

Is pregnancy possible b4 your period? I know an egg must be present but can some1 get pregnant the week before their period and get menstral 1 day late

Is pregnancy possible b4 your period? I know an egg must be present but can some1 get pregnant the week before their period and get menstral 1 day late

Yes: Pregnancy is always possible in a reproductive age female, who is not menopausal engaging in unprotected intercourse. While regular menses are a reasonable indication of ovulatory function and timing; it is not a definitive indicator and should not be used as a contraceptive method. When in doubt, do a pregnancy test and repeat, if necessary. ...Read more

Hello, I had my right fallopian tube removed Dec. 26 due to an ectopic pregnancy. Where does the egg go and can it get fertilized?

Hello, I had my right fallopian tube removed Dec. 26 due to an ectopic pregnancy. Where does the egg go and can it get fertilized?

Can't be fertilized: When there is no fallopian tube, eggs released by the ovary are released into the area surrounding the ovary and are absorbed by the body. Fertilization takes place in the fallopian tube, and without one, fertilization cannot occur. If your other fallopian tube is intact, then you could still get pregnant every other month, when an egg is released by the ovary with the intact tube. ...Read more

My mrs. Is getting periods for 32 days for every month. At what time egg can release in her cycle. At what time we should have sex to get pregnency?

Here are some...: Ovulation occurs some 2 wks before period regardless of personal menstrual cycle. Besides, it is useful to know that some 50% of causes of infertility are from females, 30% from males, & 20% from both as well as the odd to conceive under unprotected intercourse is about 20-25% in a month, 50-60% in 6 months, & 80-85% in one year.

Can you still have a successful pregnancy with fresh cycle transfer and med qual eggs? My dr. Pushed for this & wanted to freeze our top quality eggs

Can you still have a successful pregnancy with fresh cycle transfer and med qual eggs? My dr. Pushed for this & wanted to freeze our top quality eggs

Yes: Our grading system for quality of eggs does not acurately predict implantation. Some feel that the best looking embryos - no fragmentation - may not be as good as ones with some fragmentation. We do know that lower grade embryos do not survive the freeze/thaw process as well. You should have your doctor explain his reason so you could understand and not feel pushed into a decision. ...Read more

Can I freeze eggs and safely delay pregnancy to 45?

Can I freeze eggs and safely delay pregnancy to 45?

Sometimes: It is certainly possible. That depends on your current age, how many eggs you have in your ovaries, and any underlying infertility problem. Egg freezing may give you a good chance to delay pregnancy, but it is in no way a guarantee. A proper evaluation and discussion with a fertility specialist is needed. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pregnancy 6 months ago, losing my left tube. How long does it take for my body to only releases eggs from the right/working side?

I had an ectopic pregnancy 6 months ago, losing my left tube. How long does it take for my body to only releases eggs from the right/working side?

Both sides: If you still have your left ovary, you will continue to ovulate from both ovaries. Each month will be a 50% chance the egg will be released on the good side. Because you had one ectopic, you are at risk for another. As soon as you think you are pregnant, you need to get in and get checked. ...Read more

I am taking infertility treatment from 6 months. Last month I have two eggs measuring 23, 25 cms. But I didn't got pregnancy. Why?

Nature: You need to discus this with your MD, but even when everything works right, there is only a 25% chance of getting pregnant each month. If the regimen you are on is working, keep trying. If after a few months with no success, you MD may look at other issues or discuss other options. ...Read more

When period skips a month it leaves an inside. So next month there are two eggs, right? Will both be fertile still? Pregnancy would be twins?

When period skips a month it leaves an inside. So next month there are two eggs, right? Will both be fertile still? Pregnancy would be twins?

No, no, no, no: Your inferences arising from missing a period are inaccurate. Most folks skip a period due to lack of ovulation or egg not being released. It does not therefore mean that the eggs continue to be incubated and be available for fertilization. ...Read more

Had 2 miscarriages now used clomid (clomiphene) 100mg scan on 14th day showed 2 mature eggs 22mm & 23 mm & also large cysts. Is this dangerous? Chance of pregnancy?

Clarification: You will need to contact the treating physician and ask for clarification on what a “large cyst” means. Without more detail we can not draw conclusions. Also confirm with your treating physician when you are to return for follow up and a when to do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Hi pls help I 52 and just stopped hrt to assess my menopause level my scan showed atrophied ovaries but a couple of eggs what chance of pregnancy?

Very low chance: At the age of 52 you have almost a zero percent chance of pregnancy. If they did a sonogram and saw "eggs" as you say, it was more likely small simple cysts that do not contain eggs. In a 20 year old woman, for example, you can see follicles (which contain an egg) by sonogram. The egg itself is microscopic and therefore cannot be seen by sonogram. ...Read more

Hx of 4 diagnosed chromosomal pregnancies in a row trisomy 22, 18, 13 & mono 21. I'm 39 yrs old. Is there hope of a normal pregnancy using my own eggs?

Hope yes, but..: Remember, the ancient greeks said that hope was the last evil in pandora's box. Your history sounds horrible and I am very sorry. There is always a chance of normal pregnancy with your own eggs, however I would recommend genetic counseling and ivf with preimplantation genetic diagnosis in your case (or donor eggs). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

Adopt or IVF: All the myths are just that. No sex position, diet, timing, etc assure gender selection. The male sperm does. If you want your own genetic girl, an IVF center can harvest your eggs, fertilize them with dads sperm & select female embryos to implant in you. There is no guarantees it would produce a full term pregnancy. ...Read more
