Had a 6 weeks miscariage on 28may. After dat had one normal menstrual cycle. Is it safe to plan a baby again. What precautions shld b taken dis time?

Varies: It may be ideal to wait 3-6 months after your previous miscarriage to try to get pregnant again. Although, there is controversial information out there. The World Health Organization recently showed a study stating that you can get pregnant right away with possibly less complications. In the end, it's up to you.

Are there any pills that are safe to take while breastfeeding that could delay my menstrual period for a few days or a week? It'd really help, thanks!

Yes, oral progrstins: First, breast-feeding is a great decision. Breast-feeding alone can give you reduced or absent cycles. There is a specific type of birth control pill call progestin only pills.

Never!: Although it may take a few days for ovulation to occur after a period, there really isn't a "safe" period of time for unprotected sex. If not pregnancy, then std's are always possible.

I have a irregular menstrual period, it takes 8days of bleeding. Is it safe to have a sex intercourse from my partner right after my period?

I have a irregular menstrual period, it takes 8days of bleeding. Is it safe to have a sex intercourse from my partner right after my period?

No: There are relatively safe times of the month only when a woman has regular periods. With irregular periods, you never know when ovulation might occur, so there is no very safe time. However, with irregular periods, you probably aren't ovulating very often, so you may be less likely to get pregnant. But if you wish to be safe, better use something, such as condoms. ...Read more

My last menstrual period is dec.14 2013 when is my ovulation day if I am 31 day cycle? I have sex ovulated day but with condom, am I safe?

Hopefully: You ovulate 2 weeks before your cycle comes on, so if you are regular, count back 14 days from your expected first day and you will have the most likely day of ovulation. If the condom was worn and used appropriately, you chould be 99% safe to avoid pregnancy. Best wishes. ...Read more

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

Depends: Some women have a 28 day cycle and some have a 35 day cycle, so being 5 days late for each of those women as an absolute number is going to mean something different. Basic rule of thumb, though, if you're more than 5-7 days late, you're likely late. Could be stress, weight gain/loss, hormones, thyroid or pregnancy. See your doctor if you're worried. ...Read more
