I'm feeling movement like a baby kicking in my stoumic had a period on 10/30/14 ended three four days early after that around 11/13/14he enjaculated?

Pregnancy: Unless you want to have a child it is best to use birth control/condums when having sex. At 17 it is young to have a child it is best to get an education/job first. That being said when pregnant you don't fell the kicking till 4-5 month along. Since your last period was 10/30/14, you likely would not be able to test for pregnancy till the first week in December.

It: It may be that your hormones are off balance, which can happen from conditions such as stress or weight changes (weight too high or too low). If there is any chance that you are pregnant please take a test (some pregnancies can cause spotting or bleeding).

If you have pain, soaking more than a pad an hour, light-headedness, fainting or vomiting then you would have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Four days period late.. Could I be pregnant? I did a pregnancy test yesterday it was negative.. what should I do now is it too early

Pregnancy unlikely: Pregnancy unlikely, but can repeat a test in one week. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after 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. ...Read more

I have paragard non stop bleeding two mos was on bc to regulate for 1 1/2 wk, had a regular period. Started 5 days early light spotting for four days.

Still bleeding?: The heavy bleeding from ParaGard does seem to lighten up within six months after placement. You can try a nonsteroidal like Naprosyn, (naproxen) or prescription med called Lystada. You also can continue using the birth control pill to control the heavy bleeding for a few more months. I would recommend doing continuous cycling with the pill or ring which could stop bleeding all together for a while & is safe ...Read more

Had intercourse day before period. It came next day but foe four days instead of six. Took pregnancy test two days ans negative. Is this too early.

Had intercourse day before period. It came next day but foe four days instead of six. Took pregnancy test two days ans negative. Is this too early.

Yes, too early: Since you had a period after sex, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

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
