Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. 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

Hello I was wondering. Is it safe to wear scented panty liners? Also I have a holiday booked for the 5th of May this year to which I'll be 2 months pregnant, it's agadir in morrocco, is it safe to travel here? Many thanks Tiffany

Hello I was wondering. Is it safe to wear scented panty liners? Also I have a holiday booked for the 5th of May this year to which I'll be 2 months pregnant, it's agadir in morrocco, is it safe to travel here? Many thanks Tiffany

Yes: Scented panty liners are safe but they do irritate the skin of a lot of women. The safety of Morrocco on the other hand is open to question for all travelers in the current political enviroment. The usual travel precautions about food and water still apply and u need to check with your doctor about vaccinations or prophylaxis against malaria, etc. Some of those may b contraindicated in pregnancy. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant if I dryhump with underwear and panty liners and my boyfriend was naked? I was on the 5th and 6th day of my cycle. I have 28-30days.

Sperm + egg: It is very important that you understand the basics about sex before you engage in it so that you make your own decisions about what you want to do. Do some studying so that you are well informed. To answer for fertilization to occur sperm must be deposited in the vagina so that it can travel up and fertilize one of the females eggs. ...Read more

I am a few weeks pregnant and I am spotting brown blood. Nothing on my panty liners but when I wipe its either brown or dark brown blood. What's wrong?

I am currently 4 weeks pregnant, is it safe to continue to use scented panty liners? I'm due to fly to Agadir Morroco in a month, is this still safe?

I am currently 4 weeks pregnant, is it safe to continue to use scented panty liners? I'm due to fly to Agadir Morroco in a month, is this still safe?

Yes, Yes: While it is probably safe to use panty liners with scent, I would say not to do it unless you absolutely have to, since there is a small risk you might develop an allergy to the scent. As for flying to Morocco at 8 weeks pregnancy, I don't see any reason to be concerned about that. ...Read more

Hi had sex two weeks before my periods, then periods came week later. Then today woke up got light blood on my panty liners. Am I pregnant?

Always a possibility: Pregnancy is always a possibility. In some women, they may have bleeding that is similar to a period but bleeding can happen with implantation. Spotting with or without pregnancy occurs in many women and can be a sign of infection, trauma, or can be normal. A home pregnancy test may be helpful in this situation. For any additional concerns, a visit to a health professional may be helpful ...Read more

The: The iud is pretty effective if in the right location. About 97% or so. There is a chance of pregnancy, however since your pregnancy tests were negative, this is not likely. Your symptoms could be due to hormonal changes.
If your symptoms persist or you develop lower abdominal pain, see your doctor, especially since ectopic pregnancy is common if you conceive with an iud in place.
All the best. ...Read more

I have been on my cycle for 11days now it is light I wear panty liners instead of pads I usually only last 7days what can be causing this?

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I have excessive vaginal wetness. I wear at least two panty liners a day. It's there such a condition as an overactive Bartholin's gland?

I have excessive vaginal wetness. I wear at least two panty liners a day. It's there such a condition as an overactive Bartholin's gland?

Sort of: Vaginal secretions come from the Bartholin's gland and many places in the vagina. If abnormal causes of vaginal discharge are excluded, but there is a lot of vaginal discharge, the term is "physiologic leukorrhea". This can be due to changes in diet, sexual activity, medication stress etc. Its always best to see your gyn and have it checked out before deciding its normal. Best wishes! ...Read more

Does wearing panty liners every day rly cause BV? I wear (non-perfumed) ones but for only about 8 hours and I change every time I use the restroom.

Does wearing panty liners every day rly cause BV? I wear (non-perfumed) ones but for only about 8 hours and I change every time I use the restroom.

Makes no difference: There have always been urban myths and old wives' tales about tight clothing and vaginal infections in women. Mostly these concerned yeast, but if there is any connection at all, it is very minor. There certainly is no evidence that panty liners, underwear, or other clothing increase the risk of bacterial vaginosis -- not even a theoretical reason why they might. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

Hi I always have vaginal discharge and have to wear panty liners what can I do to stop it and is it normal to always have discharge im tired of it?

May be normal: All women have some degree of vaginal discharge. If your is excessive, there may be a reason such as an over growth of bacteria and/or yeast, if you do not have any other reason for the discharge and it is excessive you may have a condition such as an excessive ectropian. That can be treated to decrease the discharge by performing a leep procedure. See your doctor. ...Read more

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

My boyfriend and I just dry humped. He was wearing underwear and jeans while I wore underwear, jeans, and panty liner. Is it possible to be pregnant?

Sperm required: Sperm is required to fertilize and egg to cause pregnancy. That can not happen when you are dressed. It is very important that you do some basic reading on human reproduction and sexuality. You owe it to yourself to be educated before you engage in sexual activities so that you can make decisions that are right for you. ...Read more

Am 24 weeks pregnant, and I have little brown spot on my panty liner for a week now. Is this normal?

Can be: A small brown spot is typically not concerning, though definitely something to mention to your doctor. Most women have something like this at some point in pregnancy. Refrain from sexual intercourse, until you see your doctor. Brown blood is old blood, so there's no telling how old, in fact, it is. Could be weeks old and there's nothing to be concerned about. But definitely tell your doctor, . ...Read more
