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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Consult needed: unfortunately, because of the character limit on healthTap I am unable to understand your full question, but it seemed somewhat complex. You have a delayed period, but you still ovulate. Are you trying to get pregnant? Are you thinking about when to time intercourse? Would be happy to field a consultation. ...Read more

Been having pregnancy like symptoms. Took femara (letrozole) about 3 weeks ago, had blood test for progesterone day 21 level, came back .4 and had ultrasound done which said I ovulated. Could I be pregnant, be having ectopic pregnancy, or miscarrying?

See your physician: Have a bhcg quantatative done, not bhcg qualatative. It would be good to see what your bhcg number is to determine if you are pregnant. Most home preganancy tests are qualatative which tells you if you are pregnant or not. A quantatative test will provide a "number" to indicate "how much" of a product is produced. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant if hCG levels are above 100 after a recent ectopic pregnancy? How low would they have to be to ovulate again?

Is it possible to get pregnant if hCG levels are above 100 after a recent ectopic pregnancy? How low would they have to be to ovulate again?

Zero: You need to wait until the HCG reaches zero to try again. That is for several reasons. First you could be at danger from the ectopic still if is not totally gone. Also after a miscarriage or an ectopic it is possible to have a type of pregnancy cancer where the HCG never goes down to zero. So in either case it is very important to follow the HCG down to zero first, . ...Read more

After my ectopic pregnancy, i loosed my right fallopian tube, so will it effect me every month from conceiving? Do ovaries ovulate alternately ?

Ectopic pregnancy: Ovaries normally ovulates 70% of the time on the same side. Losing a tube due to an ectopic pregnancy will decrease your chances of conception but there is still a high likelihood of conceiving. Ask your physician to determine which side you ovulate the majority of time on and possibly taking Clomid (clomiphene) will allow you to ovulate on both sides to improve your chances of conception. There is an approximate 10 to 15% chance of having another topic pregnancy. ...Read more

I have been having irregular periods since ectopic pregnancy six months ago, can I ovulate while on my menstrual cycle?

I have been having irregular periods since ectopic pregnancy six months ago, can I ovulate while on my menstrual cycle?

Yes: Not because you are bleeding vaginally means you are having a regular menstrual bleed. If you ovulated and then bleed 2 weeks later, you are not going to ovulate while bleeding, no. But, if you bleed randomly, you can certainly ovulate while bleeding. ...Read more

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Did  having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read more
