I Want To Be Pregnant What Can I Do
Late sex: Many women have longer cycles which means they ovulate later. This does not interfere with fertility. It simply means that the most fertile time is later. If the interval from ovulation to the start of your period is short however that can mean a luteal phase defect which can cause fertility problems. This is very treatable. See your doctor to look into this. ...Read more

Pregnancy: You have the greatest chance of pregnancy when you are sexually active on the day of ovulation and 5 days prior. Most women ovulate around day 10 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

Ovar. Cyst and irregular cycles, I took birth control for 3 mos. But only worked for a lil I want to get pregnant what can I do my ob just give bcp?
Irregular periods: Are common among young women and are often associated with anovulatory cycles. Pregnancy is not likely to occur with anovulatory cycles. Menstrual cycles usually regulate on their own. You may just need to give it some time. Try to maintain a healthy weight and get regular exercise, but not excessive exercise, and take Folic Acid every day to help avoid birth defects when you do get pregnant. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I just received my period today and I want to stop it immideatly, I want to try to get pregnant, what can I do?
Not possible: You can only stop your period immediately by taking certain doses of hormonal medication which can then prevent you from getting pregnant. I would start counting the days to the next time you will ovulate, which if you have a normal cycle is 14 days from the time your period ends. This is when you are most fertile. But I would also talk to a local physician to make sure it is ok for you to try. ...Read more

Couples therapy: It would help if you both went to couples therapy as a way to learn how to work through difficult issues as a team. If he doesn't want to go, go yourself, you will need to develop skills either way. Even if you went along with the idea, your babies could all be girls. Adoption would be the only way to select a son. But would either of you be willing to go that route. Again counseling helps. ...Read more

Not enough info...: "Pills" tells me nothing of what you took & stopped. Pregnancy is caused by sex around the time of ovulation, leading to fertilization of an egg by sperm that then implants. If you are healthy, then a regular unprotected sex life (with some attention to mid-cycle/ovulation) generally EVENTUALLY leads to pregnancy. At your age, evaluation after 1 yr of not conceiving is warranted. Take care. ...Read more

I took depo about 3 months ago but it's around that time for me to go and get the next shot. I had unprotected sex last week and I've been tired lately, been popping more often, and my stomach feels weird. Could I be pregnant.
Too soon to know:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 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, if you have sex.
