Early pregnancy: Take very good care of yourself as an early pregnancy is vulnerable to a great number of factors. Eat well and rest well. Do not use any form of alcohol, tobacco or illicit drugs. Ask about safety of any prescriptions you may be on. Call your doctor to make an appointment for a pregnancy check up. Avoid any exams involving Xrays. Avoid exposure to chemicals and toxic fumes. Moderate exercise ...Read more

It may sound like a dumb question, but pregnancy is not possible without ejaculatjon right?

It's not a dumb: Question, and yes, pregnancy is possible without ejaculation. A small amount of sperm comes out during intercource before ejaculation. The "pull out" method is not only a poor birth control system but it is also unsafe sex for STD's. Condoms work much better. ...Read more

I had a question bout pregnancy. I had sex on the 25 an I not sure is that around the?

Urine pregnancy test: If a woman had sex (no birth control) 5 days ago, she can get pregnant. Pregnancy is more likely if the sex was some day between 1 week after the start of the last period, through a few days past the middle of the monthly cycle. Since many women have trouble figuring the days, a woman should just check a urine pregnancy test if her next period is missed or is different from her usual periods. ...Read more

Okay doc, I have a question about pregnancy. I am very up and down on my bc pills so I've been spotting but I'm puking have a tight tummy ect am i preg?

The only way: To know this is to use a pregnancy test. You may consider something more user independent like the nuva-ring. I rarely advise depo-provera, but it beats unplanned pregnancy. If not pregnant tie the pill into brushing your teeth at night, good luck. ...Read more

Pregnancy I have questions about some pregnancy symptoms I've been having but I'm not sure if I'm pregnant.

Pregnancy I have questions about some pregnancy symptoms I've been having but I'm not sure if I'm pregnant.

The : The only way to know whether you are pregnant or not is to take a test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 – 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period.

Good luck! ...Read more
