I Have the paraguard iud, why am I freaking out about pregnancy when my boyfriend and I hugged while naked?

I Have the paraguard iud, why am I freaking out about pregnancy when my boyfriend and I hugged while naked?

Anxiety: You are "freaking out" due to anxiety over having an unplanned pregnancy. Although the left half of your brain which is associated with logic "knows" that you can't get pregnant, the right half of your brain (creative/artistic side) is thinking, "What if?" Could the IUD fall out? Could sperm suddenly jump from his body into your uterus? In truth, anxiety is more complicated, but I am out of space ...Read more

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. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I just took 2 hpt, both were positive. I had an ectopic pregnancy about 11 months ago, so scared I'm going to have another one...likely hood??

Recurrent Ectopic PG: You are justifiably concerned about a 2nd ectopic pregnancy with this pregnancy as often the intra-tubal obstructions that were present in the 1st pregnancy are also still present in the 2nd. There is a 10 % chance of that occurring. The good news is that you are very aware of the possibility so "run" do not "walk" to your OB GYN now and get the necessary testing for intrauterine pregnancy. ...Read more

Had my methotrexate injection 7 weeks ago for an ectopic pregnancy (about 3 weeks along). Still getting pos. home pregnancy tests. What's going on?

Should be tracked: After Methotrexate it is important that your BHCG levels be tracked all the way down to zero. Usually this is done weekly. This is done to make sure that Methotrexate worked to treat the ectopic pregnancy. Also since it has been 7 weeks are you sure that this is not a new pregnancy? It is possible that you are pregnant again. See an Obgyn for a BHCG blood test. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pregnancy about 3 years ago then had to remove a tube and my right ovary me and my boyfriend been trying to have a baby?

I had an ectopic pregnancy about 3 years ago then had to remove a tube and my right ovary me and my boyfriend been trying to have a baby?

Your question is ???: If you are wondering if you can conceive, it is hard to say. Ectopic's often occur because of a scarring within the tube that prevents the egg from moving normally to the uterus. If your other tube is normal, pregnancy should be possible. If scarred, maybe not. Talk with your OB about some testing &or other alternatives to achieve pregnancy. ...Read more

frequent urination
spotted dark brown/pink blood for 2 days
tender breasts

had low grade fever yesterda

Low : Low grade fever can be a sign of early pregnancy. Not everyone experiences this, so to answer your question, yes you can be pregnant and not have a low grade fever. On the other hand low grade fever, especially if it lasts for a while, may may a sign of an infection. If this is the case(prolonged fever) you should inform your doctor right away. Also you can take an early prediction test at this point. Good luck. ...Read more

How do pregnancys go about showing up on blood test?
Do they always check if you are when taking blood?  As a teenager how likely is it to misscary?

Teen Pregnancy: Blood tests measure a hormone called beta HCG. It is only measured when specifically ordered (not in every blood test). Being a teenager does not increase your risk of having a miscarriage. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Took a pregnancy test about 3 -3.5 weeks after sex.. Came up negative. Is this enough time for a accurate test?

Took a pregnancy test about 3 -3.5 weeks after sex.. Came up negative. Is this enough time for a accurate test?

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. ...Read more

Hi I took a pregnancy test about three months ago but I've had bleeding twice within 3 weeks of each other what could this mean ? Ps test was positive

Test was positive: If your test was positive then this indicates pregnancy. If you have been bleeding after a positive result then prompt evaluation by an Obgyn is needed to confirm that everything is ok with the pregnancy. Bleeding in pregnancy is common but never normal. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex less than 2 weeks ago. I took a pregnancy test about 3 days later, and it was negative. Am i in the clear?

I had unprotected sex less than 2 weeks ago. I took a pregnancy test about 3 days later, and it was negative. Am i in the clear?

Too early to test: The time to test would be after you miss your period, better yet 4-5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. I trust that you know about morning after pill (plan b) that you could have taken after the unprotected sex. You may wish to see your doctor to get tested for std. ...Read more

I took a first response pregnancy test about almost 4 weeks after sex. Came up negative. Is this a trustful reading ? Used morning urine.

I took a first response pregnancy test about almost 4 weeks  after sex. Came up negative. Is this a trustful reading ? Used morning urine.

Yes: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Impossible to answer: You failed to include any menstrual, ovulatory or sexual history with your question. If you do not trust a test, repeating it one more time is the standard advice in this situation. ...Read more

Navel poped out during pregnancy tells about gender boy or girl?

Normal at some stage: Not all women pop but most do - and no - it does not reveal the gender of the baby. Now, it is easy to determine that for most OBGYN doctors - ultrasound may show the genitals too. But this was just an idea people had. No more. Best wishes for your birth. ...Read more
