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

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

I had an ectopic pregnancy about 2 years ago they remove my right ovary and my tube was mess up how long I have to wait to try again to have a baby?

I had an ectopic pregnancy about 2 years ago they remove my right ovary and my tube was mess up how long I have to wait to try again to have a baby?

2 years plenty: Two years is plenty of wait time. If you'd like to try for another pregnancy, check in with your doctor about being ready, get on a multivitamin and have sex unprotected 2-3 times weekly. You'll be at risk for a repeat ectopic so be sure to call your doctor as soon as you get a positive home pregnancy test. ...Read more

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
