A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

The rule for...: The rule that has worked for many generations is, "The father of the baby is the man she is married to." From a societal perspective, that's a good thing. Children get to grow up in an intact family without worrying about who actually belongs to whom. The modern way (DNA tests) can tell the exact biological relationships among family members... for better or for worse. ...Read more

Is it possible for my last period to be august 29 and had sex july 24 when I found out I was pregnant august 8th?

Unclear: If you had a positive pregnancy test on August 8th then your last menstrual cycle would have been in July and not August 29th. If you were already pregnant on August then 8th then any bleeding after is considered pregnancy bleeding and not a period. Use a reverse due date calculator for free online.

Found out I was pregnant in March, told I had a miscarriage, had 2 day pink period in April, could I still be pregnant and it have been a mistake?

You tell us: Did you have sex after your last period? Did you not use protection? Have you missed a period in May yet? Have you done a pregnancy test? Do you have any specific symptoms to share with us to tell us why you think you are still pregnant? Your question has no detail of any kind upon which to answer. ...Read more

My last period was March 23-28. 18 days later, on April 10 I found out I was pregnant. The line was dark and it came up quick. Did I conceive in 18 days

My last period was March 23-28. 18 days later, on April 10 I found out I was pregnant. The line was dark and it came up quick. Did I conceive in 18 days

Yes: There is no other explanation, if the pregnancy test result is correct, and if the last menstrual period start date is correct. The dates suggest that ovulation and conception was on day 11 or thereabouts, with implantation by day 17 or so... and thus the positive pregnancy test on day 18. Congratulations on your upcoming new baby. ...Read more

Follow up: Most likely your doctor scheduled you for a follow up sonogram and checked your hormone levels. There are two possibilities here. One is that you are very early pregnant and it's too early to see the baby. The second possibility is that something is abnormal. Follow up ultrasound will be needed to determine. ...Read more

5 Weeks: Assuming you conceived when you ovulated on October 20, you would be about 4 6/7 weeks today (11/9/2014). The best way to be sure would be to get a dating ultrasound between 7-9 weeks. Best wishes! ...Read more

So found out I was pregnant by period date I should be 4 weeks but when I went tp the ER for cramps thay said 3 week how's this possable?

Depends: It is difficult to confirm a pregnancy accurately at three weeks, so that may not mean a whole lot. When there is a fetus with a heart beat then the pregnancy can be dated within a few days. If your period started 4 weeks ago, then menstrual dating would put you ay 4 weeks gestation which would be 2 weeks post conception. ...Read more

Ultrasound may help: It is not possible to determine which partner you got pregnant with based on limited information you provided. An ultrasound performed during your first trimester may help confirm your dates and when you likely conceived. However, it may need to come down to a paternity DNA test to be sure. Please seek medical attention asap to discuss your pregnancy options and manage it appropriately. Take Care ...Read more

Lysteda is a nonhormone medication designed for heavy periods. Some benefit from birth control pills, patch or nuvaring. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can stop your period in some cases. Consider an endometrial ablation if you are done having children. ...Read more
