This: This is nearly impossible to answer without examining you. Many women have pain during pregnancy, but there are lots of different reasons why. First, you might be having contractions and going into labor. If you are not in labor, the weight of the baby is certainly putting your low back under stress. Massage during pregnancy is recommended to help relieve some of these aches and pains. Other causes would also need a doctor's exam to determine: hemorrhoids, varicose veins, sciatica, and osteitis pubis (pubic symphysitis).

Is it normal at 37 weeks for the vagina to be extremely tight, as the pregnancy progresses, it seems tighter, almost like I have not had sex. Should i?

Is it normal at 37 weeks for the vagina to be extremely tight, as the pregnancy progresses, it seems tighter, almost like I have not had sex. Should i?

Vaginal tightness: As the pregnancy progresses to 37 weeks, the fetus is putting gravitational and situational pressure on the rectum, vagina, and bladder due to the baby's proximity. As to your desire to initiate sex, please contact your OB MD as there may be reasons to not engage in that activity such as low lying placenta, open cervix, etc. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant when he ejaculated on the vagina and a little on the inner leg?

Is it possible to get pregnant when he ejaculated on the vagina and a little on the inner leg?

Depends on where: A fertile woman can get pregnant if she touches fertile semen to the inside of her vagina. With semen only outside the vagina, the answer would generally be NO... but of course, life can surprise you sometimes. (Note that not all semen is fertile. Semen from a guy who has had a vasectomy looks the same as fertile semen, but has no sperm in it.) ...Read more

Call your doctor now: Sharp pains at 37 weeks of pregnancy could be all sorts of things... and should be addressed now. It might be a simple urine infection (which is not so simple at 37 weeks).

My girlfriend and I had dry sex. After she told me that her leg (lose to the vagina) was wet and it was not her. I did cum. Can she get pregnant?

It is possible: I doubt anyone can give a % - it is way less likely than 100% and somewhat more than 0%. Some very vital sperms are outstanding swimmers. You may have to deal with an unexpected expectancy. If she misses her period, a test and decisions may need to be made. Good luck. Next time use protection. Hope it goes well. ...Read more

Messing around w/boyfriend, no penetration but semen maybe on my leg & bed. Not sure if any got close to my vagina bc I was wet. Pregnancy chances??

No clear answer...: Since there has been no known contraceptive ever bearing 100% success but abstinence, always do HPT 7-10 days after missing period and repeat it in another 7-10 days if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt. More? Seek evaluation/ counseling so to each current and future worry by practicing higher standard of safe sex... ...Read more
