I had my tubes clamped a year ago after my fifth child I'm in a new relationship and considering wanting to have my last child. Is this possible?

Depends: Reversals are rarely perfect & could set you up for a tubal pregnancy. You could have a fertility center harvest some of your eggs, fertilize them with dad's sperm and implant them in your uterus. This would bypass the blockage. All choices have their expense & work attached ...Read more

I  will like to get advise on the best form of contraceptives. I'm in a new relationship; no plans for babies for the next year or  two. ?

LARCs: Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives like the IUD or implantable devices like Nexplanon should be considered. Of course, if options are limited, regular, consistent use of the pill is reasonable too. ...Read more

When : When a person has cycles as irregular as yours, they are clearly not ovulating. The good news is that usually this problem is easily dealt with. It will require that you see your ob/gyn or an infertility specialist. They will typically do some simple blood tests and perhaps a semen analysis on your partner and a test to check your fallopian tubes. Based on these results they will probably prescribe a pill to help you ovulate. It is unlikely that a birth control pill will return you to regular ovulatory cycles though some doctors might start with that. Once the correct dose is found that will consistently get you to ovulate, the chance of getting pregnant is 15 to 20% per month which is close to what normal is. Hope this helps. Good luck! ...Read more

"I have a paragard IUD that I have had for over a year, I started a new sexual relationship and this menstrual cycle has been nothing but dead blood a?

Get checked: Paragard has no hormones so it should not affect the menstrual cycle. Any time one starts a new relationship STD testing is always a good idea. Your doctor can check the IUD location at the same visit. If you think you are pregnant then check a home test. ...Read more

Positive thinking: I think you should realize that you are very young and you have your whole life ahead of you. The best course of action is to ask yourself to think positively and avoid making negative statements about it. Instead, make positive comments about the future and your future relationships and catch yourself if you ever do the opposite. Good luck. ...Read more

Urology: Member870, your statement is very interesting and i would like to help you with your concern if i can but i don't really know what "a relationship" has to do with urology. If you could share the question that you asked the urologist, i might be able to clarify his response or give you a response of my own. ...Read more

Diagnosed with hsv1 genital- can symptoms show up several years after first exposed? In long term mutually monogamous relationship currently.

Yes: Unfortunately HSV remains in a person's system for the rest of her/his life and symptoms can occur at varying intervals. A person with no visible lesions can still transmit the virus to one's sexual partner. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
