Light periods 5 days after taking ECP. Does this mean I am not pregnent? My normal period date is not around this time of the month.

Periods/Plan B: Taking emergency contraception is quite likely to throw your periods off for a month - that's exactly how they work. If you had 5 days of bleeding shortly after the pill use, this sounds very normal and means you should not be or become pregnant. GIve it a couple of more weeks until your normal period would have been due and then if you have concern yet, take a home pregnancy test - but unlikely. ...Read more

Got my normal period on time 4 weeks after unprotected sex, no symptoms, all negative hpt's. What are the odds of me being pregnant?

ZERO: First you did not have sex when you were ovulating and thus cannot be pregnant. Second, you got a period. This is the physical proof of not being pregnant. And, third, even though you wasted your money on these unnecessary tests, you got the tests backing that up. ...Read more

Sex causes pregnancy: But, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

Can I be on my period&be pregnant at the same time? Period isn't the same as my regular period, but came around when I had to get my normal period.

Yes that is possible: Some women will continue to have a cycle when they are pregnant. The cycle will often be somewhat different (eg: amount of bleeding, length) than normal. Other symptoms may make one wonder about pregnancy (fatigue, wt gain, breast tenderness, nausea), but there are a variety of other causes that could cause a period to be different in some way (eg: stress, diet/weight changes, intense exercise) ...Read more

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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

It: It sounds like your pregnancy is very, very early if your beta HCG is 12. An ultrasound will help determine the exact dating. An ultrasound usually shows a sac/fetus at about 4-6 weeks. If you had spotting or pain then also please be sure to have an ultrasound. ...Read more

If I had my normal period in time during placebo week could I be pregnant?

If I had my normal period in time during placebo week could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: A woman who is properly taking her birth control pills, and is beyond her first pack of pills, has contraceptive protection ALL the time, regardless of where she is in her pill pack. That's very important to understand. Also, if she gets her withdrawal period at the end of each pack of pills, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex for the first time yesterday, and bleeding that seems like a normal period came today, 9 days early. Could I be pregnant?

Possible: You certainly could be pregnant. If you don't want to get pregnant take Plan B (you can get it from the pharmacy. It's over the counter now). Or, go to a health clinic and ask for a copper iud for emergency contraception. That's the most effective emergency contraception there is. If your regular period doesn't come in 9 days, check a preg test. ...Read more

Can any girl remain pregnant if she had three times normal period after last safe intercourse?

Unlikely: She is not likely to be pregnant if she had menstruation after sex. Menstruation is a sign that sperm did not successfully join with ovum to form zygote which directs the uterus lining to increase which ultimately helps in forming placenta. If there is no zygote formation then uterus lining starts to shed which is called menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

GYN help would: .. be crucial to you right now. You need to get to the bottom of why your cycle is irregular. Since you have had significant procedures done to your endometrium, it is important for you to be regulated, perhaps with an oral contraceptive, or hormone suppository. I would find out sooner than later from your GYN doctor what you need to do next. ...Read more

Does a normal period mean not pregnant? (only had anal sex). I have no pregnancy symptoms though.

Wrong hole: One does not become pregnant by anal sex, unless the guy misses and ends up in the correct hole. The strangest things can happen in life, so if worried, go to the store and buy a urine pregnancy test. They are very accurate when done correctly at 3 weeks after sex. A normal regular menstrual period means a woman is not pregnant. Also, anuses are not designed for sex's excessive friction trauma. ...Read more

Lighter than normal period for 2mths in row, but on time, neg pregnancy tests, and on birth control? Why is it lighter? Use to heavier flow? Reasons?

Rarely Do Women....: Complain about a lighter flow. You are on birth control. The periods will be lighter and hopefully less bothersome and you will be protected against unwanted pregnancy. It sounds like a win win situation. ...Read more
