Can do a preg. Test: Have faith that the condom worked fine. If still worried, one can do a home pregnancy test. A correctly done urine test 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 a woman's normal, regular period comes, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

When u have your period three weeks early does that mean you can b pregnant? And if so can u please tell me when is the best time to take a test?

No, yes: Early period doesn't signify pregnancy. Best time to take pregnancy test is 4 weeks after last menstrual period (lmp). In other words, check after you've missed your period. If you want to get pregnant but your test is negative, go see your family doc for prenatal vitamins. If test is negative & you don't want to get pregnant, talk to your doc about birth control. Then make partner wear condom. ...Read more

Yes. Days 11-16.: With a 28-day cycle, ovulation happens around day 14. That is day 14 counting from the beginning of a period (the first day of bleeding is day 1). That is also known as 14 days after lmp, which means last menstrual period. If wanting a baby, start having sex twice a day on day 11, for 6 days... And enjoy those days, without thinking about pregnancy, babies, or anything related to cycles. ...Read more

What does it mean when your spotting after your period? I've been having spotting after my period for the first time and it really concern mean a lot, so I'm just asking could I be pregnant or is it normal for that to be happening?

What does it mean when your spotting after your period? I've been having spotting after my period for the first time and it really concern mean a lot, so I'm just asking could I be pregnant or is it normal for that to be happening?

First: First of all, make sure that your bleeding is coming from your vagina and not your urethra or rectum. If you insert a tampon and there is blood on it, then you know the bleeding is coming from wither your uterus, cervix or vagina.

If you are pre-menopausal, there are many causes for vaginal bleeding not related to your period such as:
- iud or Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) use
- stopping or starting birth control pills containing estrogen
- stress
- hormone problems such as with the thyroid
- injury/trauma of the vagina from intercourse or a sexually transmitted disease
- uterine fibroids or polyps
- cervical injury, infection or rarely, cancer
- pregnancy (implantation bleeding)

the best way to sort out what could be happening is to call your doctor. If you are bleeding heavily, call immediately, otherwise you can call during office hours. A careful exam can help show whether your spotting is anything to worry about. Good luck! ...Read more

If the next period comes and is a normal regular one, it means one is not pregnant, again. If worried, one can do a urine pregnancy test the week after missing a period, or 3 weeks after having sex. ...Read more

So I am 17 & I have not had a period in about 2 years, I had sex for the first time, last saturday. Does that mean I am not ovulating & not pregnant?

See your doctor: Not having periods for two years at the age of 17 is not normal and may indicate that you have a hormonal imbalance that should be evaluated. It is likely that you're not ovulating, but you need to be evaluated to be sure as this could lead to more serious problems in the future when you actually WANT to be pregnant. Conditions to consider: hypothyroidism, hypopituitarism, ovarian failure. ...Read more

Wat does it mean wen ur on the Depo-Provera for the first time u don't get ur period for amonth andahalf ur pregnancy test is negative what does this mean?

Wat does it mean wen ur on the Depo-Provera for the first time u don't get ur period for amonth andahalf ur pregnancy test is negative what does this mean?

It's normal: The contraceptive, Depo Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) inhibits egg maturation and hence ovulation. Because it is a progesterone it may cause the lining of your uterus to become thin thus there is no 'build up' or thickening of the lining (endometrium). Since there is no significant 'build up' there is nothing or very little to shed. This shedding is your period. So you may not get you periods or it may be spotting. ...Read more
