Do you mean...: You had sex a couple months ago, she has since had 2 normal periods, and is now late for her 3rd?

I had fibroid surgery on 28th of april and I had my period on 6th of June,had sex on 21st of June.I had another period on 2nd of july.Am I pregnant?

It is possible: The female cycles can be disrupted by a lot of things, including stress from surgery, illness and the fibroids themselves. Having a period on the June date could have been breakthrough bleeding from the middle of the cycle. But without a test or any preventive measures--I would not hazard a guess. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

If you have uterine fibroids causing your lack of period, how much do they effect your ability to get pregnant?

Depends: Usually fibroids cause heavier prolonged bleeding rather than stopping your period. If the size of the fibroid is large, it can affect your odds of getting pregnant. A ultrasound can identify the size and location of the fibroid. See your GYN if you have not been able to get pregnant despite trying.

Take test, follow up: Do you know how large the fibroid is? Sometimes they are large enough to feel like a pregnant uterus and they can be quite hard. They can also complicate pregnancies. So if you have not gotten your menses take a pregnancy test. Either way follow up with your OB/GYN for further advice. ...Read more

I have uterine fibroid. I had my period on 12 jan to 16th. 20 to 24th i had unprotected sex. Is it possible i get pregnant?

I have uterine fibroid.  I had my period on 12 jan to 16th. 20 to 24th i had unprotected sex. Is it possible i get pregnant?

Yes, it's possible: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) 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 therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more

I am on continuous birth control pills mainly due to uterine fibroids. All of a sudden this week I'm having a period. I have not missed a pill or been more than 2 hours late taking a pill. Is this something I should be concerned about?

I am on continuous birth control pills mainly due to uterine fibroids. All of a sudden this week I'm having a period. I have not missed a pill or been more than 2 hours late taking a pill. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Possibly: I'm assuming that you were given birth control pills continuously as an inexpensive way to control abnormal bleeding. You are experiencing breakthrough bleeding on the pill which is common. Birth control pills contain estrogen and progesterone, which may make your fibroid grow. My concern in your case is this: have you had a workup of your fibroid's with CBC, ultrasound, MRI, and hysteroscopy. ...Read more

Im 36. I took norethindrone 5 mg on9/5/14 for fibroids. I got my tubes tied 10yrs ago. My last period was 9/2/14. Can i be pregnant? I have symptoms

Yes.: Pregnancy is possible after a tubal ligation. A fistula track may be form between the ends of the tube and provide a connection. Since this connection is not perfectly smooth, there is a higher chance that the pregnancy may be stuck in the tube and result in an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. This may become a life threatening condition. Do a pregnancy test and if positive see your doctor ASAP. ...Read more
