Up to one year: It can take up to 12 months after the last Depo shot for someone to begin ovulating again. Many will ovulate sooner. IF your periods were irregular before Depo then this may indicate that you ovulate irregularly or not at all. The fact that you got pregnant once before is a good sign though. ...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

What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

The: The "sack of the baby" is likely the amnion, which encases the amniotic fluid. Having a "low" sack is not very common or a recognized complication in pregnancy. It is possible to have the pregnancy be in an abnormal location (like the cervix, which would be really low!), but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

Pregnancy test: My condolences for your miscarriage. If you've had intercourse during your fertile time, (ovulation) it is possible you are pregnant again. However, depending on how high the hormone of pregnancy (betahCG) was before miscarriage, the pregnancy test may be falsely positive. ...Read more

Can you tell me how to know if I'm having implantation bleeding, a miscarriage, or another period?

Can you tell me how to know if I'm having implantation bleeding, a miscarriage, or another period?

I had a miscarriage nov 27th I started my period jan3 it ended jan 7th now its jan14th and im bleeding again why is that?

Body reset: I'm so sorry about your miscarriage: (Following a pregnancy loss, your entire reproductive & hormone system has to reset itself to get ready for another pregnancy. Time to first menses following miscarriage is highly variable, and now that you had a period, it may be atypical (short or long) and bleeding may be irregular for a cycle or two. What you observe is in the normal range. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Maybe: You could have had a very early miscarriage or you could just have had a late period. The only way to tell would be to do a blood pregnancy test, which can detect even very low levels of pregnancy hormone. See your doctor if you continue to have abnormal bleeding. ...Read more
