My friend has a normal 5 yr old baby girl....But other 2 pregnancies she had baby boys with brain tumors. The babies died right after. Whts reason?
Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual. She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more

Confusing question: Pregnancy has been documented after isolated sexual contact on any day of a woman's cycle, including during menses. Conception is less likely for some days around menses, and more likely mid cycle, but there is no "safe" period. If avoiding pregnancy is the goal, contraception is necessary. ...Read more
The girl had a lot prenancy symptoms. Her date of periods was late. Aftr 40 day she took her 1st prenancy test at home it came -ve. And got periods. Why?
Irregular period: Many symptoms of early pregnancy are the same as the symptoms girls have before their period starts. Nausea, bloating and breast tenderness can be pregnancy symptoms OR premenstrual symptoms. There are many reasons for periods to be "late". Normal cycles can be anywhere from 28-40 days long. For women who typically get a period every 4 weeks, stress or other factors can cause late periods. ...Read more
Fooled around with girl, we both had demin pants and underwear on. Noticed spots pre cum on my boxers later chance of pregancy?
Virtually none: The chance against your sperm entering your partner's vagina appears infinitesimal as the boxer shorts and two layers of denim plus her underwear should be impassable. Should she miss her next period for some other reason, she could get a pregnancy test only for peace of mind. ...Read more

Anytime: The hormone that triggers a positive test is not dependent on the pattern of menses, although most suggest to test after missing an expected period.

My girl and I have been having sex and she is 2 months late on her period but she has taken prenancy test and comes out negative. What can it be?
My girl missed her period, she has depression and has been stressed a lot. Took a pregnacy test it was negative. Was it missed because of depression?
Not really: Stress may have altered her pattern of egg release/menses. The test may also be a false negative. It takes time for the new fetal mass to generate the chemicals that turn a urine test positive. It is more likely to be false positive early in the timing than later. If there was unprotected exposure, pregnancy would be possible. If not, it is likely the stress. ...Read more
My wife is in week 16 of her pregnancy. Any signs of whether she could be carrying a boy or girl? We hope to find out the gender in 3 weeks.
No--but enjoy trying: I think folks have been trying to answer this question for thousands of years--and there are plenty of methods that people suggest. But it appears that none of them (short of blood testing, or amnio) are any more reliable than a coin toss. And although ultrasound studies are pretty accurate, I've had a few dozen families who were certain of a baby's gender based on the ultrasound...But surprised. ...Read more

Dear doctor, How to get pregnancy with a boy or a girl during sex? • I want to get a boy not girl, could u explain me? And if I want a girl not boy?
Not specificly: It is the swimmer (sperm) who gets there first that determines the sex of the baby. There is no special position, tea, day of the month or whatever else you heard that makes any difference. Some fertility centers offer ivf techniques that may increase your chances at gender selection but are expensive and not 100% successful. ...Read more
Get an Ultrasound:
At 20 weeks, it is usually possible to see if your baby is a boy or a girl by ultrasound. Sometimes a baby will keep their legs crossed and prevent visualization of the genitalia but if the ultrasound is repeated in a few weeks you can see it.

What do you suggest if my girlfriend finally got a pregnancy test and she is having a kid any names boy/girl?
John and Julie: Use those names.Get a more detailed answer ›
Dear doctor, If I want a boy pregnancy, not girl, could u explain me? And if I want a girl pregnancy, not boy?
U get what U get: The sperm that reaches the egg first determines the sex of the baby. So it is the male, not the female that determines sex. There is no diet/position/timing that changes the odds. If you have lots of money you can try embryo selection and implantation via a fertility center. Even at this extreme there is no guarantee it will produce a healthy baby boy. ...Read more
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
No: If I understand your question correctly - you won't have a positive pregnancy test earlier with a boy than with a girl. ...Read more
