Common problem: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. If you are always irregular then you are likely not ovulating consistently. Try a home ovulation kit. If it shows no ovulation then schedule a visit. ...Read more

Is having menstural like cramps on and off normal in early stages of preg? Missed period trying to conceive. Cramps here and there but no period..
Hard to know: Cramping is very common in early pregnancy and has no specific meaning. It does not mean you will have a miscarriage or other problem in pregnancy. We recommend just no vigorous exercise but otherwise going about normal activity. Often this is just bowel pain from dramatic increases in Progesterone hormone in pregnancy; this despite the feeling similar to menstrual cramps. Good luck. ...Read more

I ve never been late on my period. Was trying to conceive and found out NT ovulating. Dr pres Clomid (clomiphene) and GT preg on 1st cyc. No pcos. Why anovulation?
See details: You say you have never been late. Make sure your menses are regular i.e. first day to first day is the same each cycle. If you are, it would require testing to determine why. Check with your doctor to see if he performed any tests other than checking for ovulation. By the way, what was your lack of ovulation based on? A mid-luteal progesterone? ...Read more

Following: Following ovulation can be frustrating. I find that the best approach is to use an ovulation predictor kit that you can get at any pharmacy. The instructions are very good in the kits so just follow them. As far as doing something to increase the chances of a boy, that is more difficult. There are procedures to select male sperm but it is not clinically available. Search on this website for a previous answer I have given that discusses this. The procedure is called microsort. Other than that, there is no proven way to change the odds. If you test and are not ovulating, or you have been trying for more than 6 to 12 months, it is time to see an ob/gyn or reproductive endocrinologist. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Possibly: There is always a possibility of pregnancy if you are having unprotected intercourse. It is best to always use a condom and another form of birth control - that way you're protected from std's and pregnancy as much as possible (except for not having sex at all). Women have even become pregnant while bleeding (during their period). Our ovaries are not swiss clocks, keep their own time..... ...Read more

I am having some discharge, and are 2days late on my period. I'm trying to conceive but home pregnancy test are negative. What could this be?
Trust the 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. The discharge will require an examination and testing. ...Read more
