According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Calorie dense foods: Eating calorie dense foods such as nuts, heavy cream, butter, fatty fishes, dried prunes, and avocado can help increase your daily calorie intake and assist in the desired weight gain. Supplements for weight gain would be inferior in quality to whole foods which are readily available and much less expensive. Your obstetrician should be made aware of your weight concerns. ...Read more

period was 2 days late and only lasted 3 days, first day being heavy second day not so much and third barley anything. Pregnant?

period was 2 days late and only lasted 3 days, first day being heavy second day not so much and third barley anything. Pregnant?

Probably not: If you are now 5 days after your expected period a urine pregnancy test would be accurate. This could be a normal variation on your cycle, or possibly an early conception that failed (miscarriage). If you are not trying to get pregnant use contraception to avoid these scares. If you are trying to get pregnant continue with good health practices and self care including a vitamin with folic acid. ...Read more

Repeat in morning: The earliest way to tell if you are pregnant is with an early detection pregnant test done on your first voided urine in the morning. This can be positive even a few days before a missed period. Your doctor's exam should be able to tell if it has been more than 4 weeks since ovulation. ...Read more

I have had hypogonadism since I was 26. I've not been able to get my wife pregnant and my testicles use to hang down, now there in me or barley out?

I have had hypogonadism since I was 26. I've not been able to get my wife pregnant and my testicles use to hang down, now there in me or barley out?

Hormone Blues: If you are hypo gonadal then hormone replacement can help you to produce sperm. I assume you have had treatment since you imply failed attempts. Having sperm is not the same as having functional sperm. You may have poor quality sperm that cannot fertilize an egg. Ivf with icsi (sperm injection into the egg) is very effective if hormone therapy alone is not. See specialist for details. ...Read more

My girlfriend barley got off her period and we had unprotected sex, could she get pregnant? This happen a week an a half after she got off her period.

My girlfriend barley got off her period and we had unprotected sex, could she get pregnant? This happen a week an a half after she got off her period.

Yes, definitely: Your timing could not be much worse. Pregnancy risk is highest in the first two weeks of a normal cycle, and waiting until the period is over will put you into the beginning of her most fertile period. Unprotected sex is unwise in any case and you and she are not acting very responsibly. ...Read more

I barley got off my period and I had unprotected sex, could I get pregnant? This happened a week an half after my period.

It's always possible: Any time of the month where unprotected sex occurs can result in pregnancy. Ovulation tends to occur 14 days before the onset of the next menstrual period, but multiple ovulations can and do occur in a single cycle. They are known as fraternal twins! Contraception works during any part of the menstrual cycle-use it. ...Read more

This my 2nd pregnancy. My 1st pregnancy I had symptoms, this pregnancy my breast just hurt and I barley have any symptoms im 5 weeks is this normal?

Normal: For many women, the only sign of a pregnancy is a missed period and a positive home pregnancy test. Others may experience breast tenderness, fatigue, and nausea. It is also common to feel some pelvic fullness, mild cramping, and urinary urgency. A lot of women have no symptoms until about 6 weeks. Second pregnancies may have fewer symptoms than first. Each pregnancy is different. Good luck! ...Read more

I am 16 weeks pregnant and have been having severe stomach pressure. It has gotten to the point where I barley even eat anymore. What is wrong?

I am 16 weeks pregnant and have been having severe stomach pressure. It has gotten to the point where I barley even eat anymore. What is wrong?

Please get checked.: It's impossible to determine if this is related to the pregnancy or not. Lots of things can cause severe stomach pressure: ulcers, gallbladder problems, viral illnesses. The growing baby can push on the stomach and cause more problems, especially with eating, but it really takes a good history and exam to know what's going on. Please let your doctor know- don't put this off! Best of luck! ...Read more

Been on birth control for a year to regulate my period and prevent pregnancy have been diagnosed with PCOS and now I barley get a period lasts 1-3 day?

Been on birth control for a year to regulate my period and prevent pregnancy have been diagnosed with PCOS and now I barley get a period lasts 1-3 day?

PCOS: Oral bcp's are prescribed for PCOS because ovulation is infrequent and unpredictable, so fertile times are difficult to predict. If you stopped bcp's and your periods are short (1-3 days) you might not be ovulating. It is not always PCOS which causes this, and simple means to cause ovulation may help. Unless you are trying to become pregnant, bcp's are safe with PCOS for other reasons. ...Read more

Period started on the fourth ended on the sixth today I use tolet paper seen small light red streaks but it was barley noticable cab I be pregnante?

Take a test: Don’t guess. Take a test. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Why would my period start barley and then stop? I am not pregnate. I do have hpv. I had very light bleeding hardly any thing and now there is nothing. I will be 31 so I don't think its menopause

Why would my period start barley and then stop? I am not pregnate. I do have hpv. I had very light bleeding hardly any thing and now there is nothing. I will be 31 so I don't think its menopause

Abnormal: Abnormal periods can be caused by fluctuations in hormones. If you continue to have irregular spotting you should be seen for this. Please be sure your thyroid functions are normal. Weight issues (too high or too low) can cause abnormal bleeding. Please be sure your pap smear is up to date also. If this continues you need a complete medical evaluation. If you have pain, vomiting, or light-headedness, then you would need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more
