If I'm 230 pounds and I get my period every month and it's never late. Can I still get pregnant?

Can't see why not.: I imagine you're concerned that your being overweight might be a problem. And you're right. But it probably won't prevent conception. It may make the pregnancy more difficult and may make it harder for you as a mother of a baby. It's very demanding and even if you're in good shape, it can be exhausting. So, if you can wait for awhile and shed some lbs - that'd be good. But you can try it. Best! ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I been trying to get pregnant for over a year, but I do get my period every 20 days, can I still get pregnant even if I get my period every 20 days?

As long as ovulate: As long as you ovulate, you can get pregnant. Although, 20 days sounds somewhat short for a normal cycle, if you have ovulation mid cycle, you can get pregnant. Use an over-the-counter ovulation test to check for it and then you can have a definite answer. ...Read more

I am 43 years old, I still have a period every month, can I still get pregnant or am I to old? Can recreational drug use also be the cause of not getting pregnant if both partners are using? I don't take birth control and I have had the same partner for t

Pregnant at 43: Yes you can still get pregnant at 43. You likely do not ovulate on a regular, consistent basis even with regular periods, but you most certainly can still get pregnant. Drug use may affect fertility. You do not want to be using drugs in preconception or pregnancy timeframes for BOTH your health and that of your unborn child. ...Read more

I'm on birth control and take it every day. I'm on my period and my boyfriend and I had sex but he never came. Can I still get pregnant? If so how?

No: You are over 99% protected against getting pregnant due to fact that you take the birth control pill everyday, and that during your intercourse you were menstruating. Also, it sounds like he did not ejaculate in your vagina, so pregnancy cannot occur. ...Read more

For the last two months I been having a period every two weeks....Could I be pregnant or is it still possible for me to get pregnant?

Yes to both.: Irregular menstrual vaginal bleeding should be easily distinguishable from an early pregnancy with threatened abortion by a home urine pregnancy test. Irregular menses decrease fertility but you can still get pregnant if unprotected vaginal intercourse takes place. Please take Folic Acid 1 mg daily and consult with your gynecologist. Best of luck! ...Read more

I been trying to get pregnant. He smokes weed every now and then and have been going thro my days I still have 7 days till period what u think?

No weed!: Don't allow weed into your baby garden (uterus)! Marijuana affects sperm quality & so can have effects on the baby made. Cannabis takes a long time to get out of the system, too. No pot for at least 3 months before trying to conceive to have the healthiest, smartest baby you can! See http://www. Menshealth. Com/health/pot-hurting-your-sperm ...Read more

Ovulation: You only have a 10 percent chance of achieving pregnancy each month this is why the definition of infertility at your age is 1 year I would recommend using an over the counter ovulation kit and have intercourse every other day around the time of ovulation. ...Read more

Trying to get pregnant haven't had a period still have symptoms of a period but no blood comes down what to do been to three doctors can't find anything wrong no std's nothing I've taken pills to help but still nothing

Trying to get pregnant haven't had a period still have symptoms of a period but no blood comes down what to do been to three doctors can't find anything wrong no std's nothing I've taken pills to help but still nothing

The: The menstrual cycle bleeding is controlled by hormones and these can be tested for by blood tests. Your ovaries make estrogen to grow an egg and then after an egg is released Progesterone is produced and if you do not get pregnant then these two hormones fall and trigger a regular period bleed. If you are not making eggs you do not make regular period bleeding. You can take a progestin pill to make bleeding but that will only work if you are making estrogen. There is no way to fix this over the internet, you will need to see someone. Naturally you would have also checked a pregnancy test too. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can I get a negative pregnancy test (clear blue) three days before expected period and still be pregnant.

Yes: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. ...Read more

Can a girl still get pregnant If she is on her period three days after having sex?

Can a girl still get pregnant If she is on her period three days after having sex?

Yes...: Ovulation isn't always predictable so although there are certain "expected" times for increased chances of getting pregnant, this is not a perfect science. Especially if your partner is also a teenager (you are 16, correct?). Hormones are really hard to predict at that age. To avoid pregnancy and STDs, learn proper use of condom and spermicide foam for EVERY sexual encounter. ...Read more

Oh,: Oh, my. You may not be ready to be having sex if you don't have a good understanding of it. If you are having regular periods you should not be pregnant. Every time you have unprotected sex, you put yourself at risk of becoming pregnant. If you have uncertainty about whether bleeding actually was your period, you can always take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Depends: You may wish to delay having children as you are quite young. However, if you have sufficient resources to take care of a child or children you need to address the following. If you have been having unprotected sex for a year or more, you need to consult a fertility specialist. If it has been less than a year, you may wish to time your sex better by learning to find out when you may be ovulating. ...Read more

It's: It's impossible to know whether you are pregnant or not just based on history alone. You need to take a home pregnancy test or call your doctor and have them do a pregnancy test for you. Pregnancy is the #1 cause of missed periods in young women. The sooner you know, the better! ...Read more

Hi I am 16 years old and I am married for a year I have been trying to conceive for 8 months now and still not pregnant I get my period every month.

Hi I am 16 years old and I am married for a year I have been trying to conceive for 8 months now and still not pregnant I get my period every month.

No need to worry: It takes an average of 6 months to conceive which means about half of women take more than 6 months. It's not considered a concern unless you try for a year without success. If in a year you're not pregnant then your husband should have his sperm count checked. If that's ok I advise you be evaluated for hypothyroidism first ; of course see a gynecologist too.
I think 16 is a bit young to be a mom. ...Read more

Yes you can: Yes you can, however spontaneous ovulation post Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) is inconsistent.

I have pcos. My periods come once every 3 months. Could I still get pregnant if I don't use condoms? Even if I don't lose weight? I'm 5'7 165 lbs.

Yes. If you ovulate.: Any premenopausal woman could potentially conceive even if her periods are irregular. A spontaneous ovulation could occur and unprotected intercouse could lead to pregnancy. Your weight may be affecting your ovulatory status as well. Strive for a normal bmi between 19-25. ...Read more

Hello! I was wondering if you could still get pregnant if a person hardly is see their periods, if you see it every other month or every 2-6months?

Infrequent periods: It sounds like your periods are both light and come infrequently, every 2-6 months. When your period is that infrequent then it is likely you are not releasing an egg, or releasing one occasionally - so it is much harder to get pregnant. The cause is usually something blocking ovulation - you need to see a doctor to figure out what is going on and treat it. ...Read more

Metformin can cause Side effects such as nausea, belly pain, constipation diarrhoea, metallic taste etc. Patience, usually with time women with PCOS get pregnant

I have been off the Depo-Provera shot for 8 months I get my periods every 24 days and am still not pregnant but I was the Depo-Provera for a year and half?

Normal cycle: Your cycle is normal and the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) taken before, likely has no influence on your inability to conceive. If you have not conceived in 8.5 mo and are having regular sex mid cycle, you could try to measure follow your ovulation with a kit to better time the optimal day to try. If you do not conceive in the next few cycles, I would seek help from an ob/gyne. ...Read more
