I'm on Apri. I didn't miss a pill but I had unprotected sex one week before my inactive pills. I had my withdrawal bleed as usual could I be pregnant?

I'm on Apri. I didn't miss a pill but I had unprotected sex one week before my inactive pills. I had my withdrawal bleed as usual could I be pregnant?

Birth control: Is 99.9% effective, so there is a very slight chance you can be pregnant, but the odds are in your favor, and since everything is going normally and you did not miss a pill it is improbable. If you want to be even safer, you can also use condoms as well as the Birth control, which also protect against STI's. Best wishes. ...Read more

I'm on apri the birth control pill. I've taken many pregnancy tests it's been 42 days since sex. Can my birth control make the tests negative?

I'm on apri the birth control pill. I've taken many pregnancy tests it's been 42 days since sex. Can my birth control make the tests negative?

Yes, indirectly...: Birth control will "cause" a negative pregnancy test, which is a main purpose of birth control pills... they prevent pregnancy, thus causing a negative pregnancy test (because the woman is not pregnant). However, no contraceptive is perfect, so if a woman gets pregnant while on birth control pills, her preg. Test will be just as POSITIVE regardless of whether she is on or off birth control pills. ...Read more

Can someone still get pregnant, even after using plan b?

Can someone still get pregnant, even after using plan b?

Yup.: Plan b is very effective, but it is still possible to get pregnant even though you took it properly and within the proper guidelines. For that matter, you can get pregnant while taking the pill - perfectly, with an iud, or even after a vasectomy or tubal ligation. Granted, the latter scenarios are unlikely - but I've seen them all! Do the best you can. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Can a massage worker trap me into a pregnancy using a kleenex?

Can a massage worker trap me into a pregnancy using a kleenex?

Pregnancy: Since you are a male - I would assume that you are asking if an exotic massage worker can procure your ejaculate on a tissue and introduce the semen into her vagina. This scenario would be highly unlikely. But the fact that you have this concern raises the issue that you may not be comfortable with this activity (essentially a form of prostitution). Encourage you to consider that. Take care. ...Read more

Am using provera10mg as prescribe by d gyno so am asking is it possible for me to get pregnant whiles using it. Thanks?

Anything is possible: If using every day it will likely trick the brain and inhibit ovulation; may want to add Estradiol at 1mg 1/2 to avoid mood effects but it sounds like endometriosis treatment or sporadic use for withdrawel bleeding. I would add a little estrogen for bone and to prevent bleeding; a small dose would be more helpful than not. Good luck. ...Read more
