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.

Missed 2 period (not pregnant), gained weight despite eating less&exercising more, abs bloat, is the weight gain due to missed periods (temporary&will go?

Discuss Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) w MD: The missed periods, bloating and weight gain may be related to the birth control pill and hormone imbalance. Please discuss with your GYN as there may be a pill or dosage better tolerated by you. In the meantime adding a good B complex vitamin, enhancing your intake of deep green leafy vegetables, possibly a probiotic - all directed at enhancing exogenous oral hormone metabolism may be helpful. ...Read more

Missed Periods: Can occur in certain medical conditions related to the ovaries and/or uterus in the absence of pregnancy. Some of these conditions can cause weight gain. I would recommend seeing your doctor for a physical exam and for labs. These labs can show if you have imbalances in the hormones that regulate your period. With these labs, I recommend getting your sugar and cholesterol checked. Best regards. ...Read more

Two months with no period plus weight gain-neg home pregnancy test husband had neg thyroid test Age 41 possible Causes?

Hormonal imbalance: At the extreme it could be the beginning of menopause. Your husbands results are not relevant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Last period 28feb, unprotected intercourse 3mar. No period. Only sign weight gain 2-3kg/bloated. 3 negative hpts in 2 weeks. Am I pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… a visit to one’s ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Can you PMS and have missed periods (im a virgin so no im not pregnat) can I still gain weight and bloat...

PMS: Pms occurs about a week to two before your period starts. If these symptoms are not followed by a period then they are likely not premenstrual. However hormonal changes due to weight fluctuations, stress/anxiety, etc, may contribute to your symptoms.
If you want to regulate your cycle you can take birth control pills for this. Discuss with your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

Irregular/missed periods since I was 17, now 26. Weight gain, some hair growth on lower stomach and neck?

Get evaluated: Your symptoms may point to an underlying medical condition that can be treated if properly diagnosed, for example thyroid disorders or polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), which is an illness that may be characterized by irregular or no periods, acne, obesity, and excess hair growth.

I tested today 2 days after missed period. Its negative. I got symptoms 1 week after sex. And continuous 2 days before miss period. Can I b pregnant?

I tested today 2 days after missed period. Its negative. I got symptoms 1 week after sex. And continuous 2 days before miss period. Can I b pregnant?

Misinformed: Your symptoms are being incorrectly labeled by you as pregnancy symptoms when they are not. That would be impossible. A fetus is not conceived for up to five days after sex and then is not connected physically or chemically to a female's body until it is big enough to have blood cells and chemicals to share, about fourteen days after conception. You are not pregnant. The tests say no. ...Read more

Feelin vrry pregnant neg test missed period 18 days now had Depo-Provera shot but miss 2 wks sexin strsight thru unprotected plenty lower cramps m I prego????

Maybe: If you have been on Depo-Provera for awhile or started it on the 2nd or 3rd day of your last period, pregnancy is unlikely. Depo does cause irregular bleeding and then the absence of periods and this is likely to be the cause of the late period. It does not help with prevention of STDs though and the cramping could be a symptom of one of those. You need to use condoms to help decrease that risk, Be safe ...Read more

Testosterone 58 and thyroid peroxidase ab T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 TSH 4.08 checked for pcos in jan no signs of pcos missed period am I pregnant never miss my period?

Testosterone 58 and thyroid peroxidase ab T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 TSH 4.08 checked for pcos in jan no signs of pcos missed period am I pregnant never miss my period?

I have absolutely: No way to tell if you're pregnant. You, on the other hand, can find out by doing an hpt. By the way, your testosterone is mildly elevated and your tsh, while "normal" is not appropriate for age. See an endocrinologist about both. You're probably overweight and Insulin resistant, and may actually have some degree of pcos. ...Read more

I missed periods for 10 days I did urine and blood test and both came negative but I still miss my periods does the blod pregnancy test is accurate?

It should be: Accurate at that point. Reasons for missed /late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight gain or loss, over-exercise such as in endurance athletes, breast-feeding, stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, medications (i.e., birth control) or med problem (polycystic ovary syndrome or Asherman’s syndrome. #1 reason is pregnancy. ...Read more

I missed my period I last had intercouse 25 days ago I am spotting (12 days after missed period) Am I pregant?

Maybe: One can do a pregnancy test to find out. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a regular period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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
