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.

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

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

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.

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

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
