If a woman is pregnant w quadruplets and looses one baby. What happens to that baby? Is the baby absorbed into body?

Yes.: As the attached image demonstrates any fetal demise with ongoing pregnancy will result in mummification of the lost fetus (papyraceous) that can sometimes be seen as part of the placenta/afterbirth. A fetal demise in more advanced gestational age may not always lead to complete reabsorption but rather an incomplete autolysis and dehydration of the retained embryo. ...Read more

I don't know if this is medical or not. But i'm wondering if it's possible to get pregnant even if you're not ovulating. I learned that if you have unprotected sex, no matter what day of the month it is, you will get pregnant.

I don't know if this is medical or not. But i'm wondering if it's possible to get pregnant even if you're not ovulating. I learned that if you have unprotected sex, no matter what day of the month it is, you will get pregnant.

Yes, : Yes, that is a very good question. It is impossible to know exactly when a woman ovulates. Typically, it is about two weeks after the first day of her last period, but this varies a great deal. If the hormones are "out of whack", so to speak, then ovulation is very difficult to predict.

I have habit of eating raw rice frequently im NT able to control myself..! planning to get pregnant n m scared if it will effect bad? any solution?

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy. When rice is cooked, all the germs are killed and its the best way to eat rice when you are pregnant. You should work on breaking this habit prior to "trying" to get pregnant. Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more
