Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. 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

Pregnancy : Pregnancy is always possible. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed or abnormal period or spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's urine test is accurate around the time of your period. Good luck! ...Read more

I havent sex before but there was precum and i havent got my period .... could i be pregnant?

I havent sex before but there was precum and i havent got my period .... could i be pregnant?

Unlikely, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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 thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

I started birth control for the first time about a week after I last had sex, but I never got my period. Could I be pregnant, or could it be from BC?

I started birth control for the first time about a week after I last had sex, but I never got my period. Could I be pregnant, or could it be from BC?

Either: It could be either. It is not uncommon to have light or no period with the pill. But in fact you had unprotected sex prior to starting birth control. I would have a pregnancy test done asap. ...Read more

Could i be pregnant? I took 6 pregnancy test before my missed period, and 4 were positive, and 2 were negative, then a few day's later i got my period. Could i still be pregnant?

Yes : Yes you could be pregnant. Bleeding in pregnancy can be normal, however it could also mean a miscarriage has happened, or will happen. The only way to be sure is to see your doctor and explain what happened. He/she will likely do a blood pregnancy test, and if the results are positive your doctor may do subsequent blood tests to track the progress of the pregnancy. Your doctor will be able to explain everything that has happened or will happen depending on the test results. Good luck. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex. He pulled out and did not come inside me. I got my normal scheduled period. Could i be pregnant?

I had unprotected sex. He pulled out and did not come inside me. I got my normal scheduled period. Could i be pregnant?

Yes, but unlikely: You were having sex during your most fertile days without protection. This is the problem , unless of course you want to get pregnant--doesn't sound like it, though. Even with "pulling out" pregnancy is common. But you having a normal, scheduled period makes it very unlikely that you are pregnant. A pregnancy test is always a simple inexpensive (often free!) test. Consider some birth control! ...Read more

I didnt take my birth control regularly. I had unprotected sex for 10 days straight the last being the 15 I got my period the 19, could i be pregnant?

Unlikely: Although inconsistent use of birth control pills combined with multiple episodes of unprotected sex puts you at very high risk for pregnancy, the presence of your recent period, providing it was completely normal, makes it highly unlikely that you are pregnant. ...Read more
