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.

Is it safe to have a tooth pulled/extracted during pregnancy? I have a broken tooth that needs to be removed it is causing my whole right side pain

Is it safe to have a tooth pulled/extracted during pregnancy? I have a broken tooth that needs to be removed it is causing my whole right side pain

During pregnancy: Most patients and unfortunately even some dentists shy away from proper dental care for pregnant women. Any elective treatment can\should be postponed but all emergency and\or necessary dental care including extractions can usually be performed with proper precautions and by competent dentists. You, your dentist and your ob\gyn should consult with each other. Often, no treatment is worse for all.

It's almost been a month since I had sex. Can I be experiencing pregnancy symptoms this soon? (veiny boob, right side pain)

It's almost been a month since I had sex. Can I be experiencing pregnancy symptoms this soon? (veiny boob, right side pain)

Possible: Have you had your period yet? If not, I would recommend you get a pregnancy test to rule it out. Yes, you could be pregnant that soon (one month) and need to find out. If not pregnant, see your doc about what it could be.

Starting to get a little worried now, are postivie hpt and left side pain symptoms of ectopic pregnancy?

Starting to get a little worried now, are postivie hpt and left side pain symptoms of ectopic pregnancy?

Many possible: Pelvic/abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding are most common symptoms. These are rarely present with an early ectopic though, so if there's reason for concern about ectopic consult your doctor, do not rely on symptoms.

My period is late! Do I need pregnancy test right away for side pain?

My period is late! Do I need pregnancy test right away for side pain?

It could help dx: If you are pregnant, the test will be positive by 10 days after ovulation. Pain with a positive test would be concerning for an ectopic pregnancy.

I'm thinking a lot everyday if im having ectopic pregnancy and im having lower right side pain in abdomen. I also feel dizzy. But negative. Can be anxiety?

I'm thinking a lot everyday if im having ectopic pregnancy and im having lower right side pain in abdomen. I also feel dizzy. But negative. Can be anxiety?

Yes, it sounds like: Anxiety. You are not concerned about normal pregnancy, but a variation, an ectopic, despite having a negative pregnancy test. The pain the the abdomen may be a few things but not uncommon. See your doc. Stress or mood disorders cause poor sleep, low energy and pain without a physical cause. Consider a psychiatrist if available, not because you r crazy but 4 best meds if needed, good luck.

Had tubes tide burned and clipped in 2008. Haven't started my period, took home pregnancy test neg. Also having right side pain. What does this mean?

Had tubes tide burned and clipped in 2008. Haven't started my period, took home pregnancy test neg. Also having right side pain. What does this mean?

Could be: Could be anovulatory cycle - meaning you didn't ovulate - or a late ovulation. If your periods are not regular, it might be worth doing a pregnancy test again to be sure. If you are usually regular and the hPT is still negative, check with a doctor if the next period is missed too. Sometimes a period can be missed due to a persistent cyst from the cycle before, again a doctor can help.

Had back&side pain (left), abdominal&hip pain. All since had c section 13 weeks ago, could it be related to pregnancy or recovering?

Had back&side pain (left), abdominal&hip pain. All since had c section 13 weeks ago, could it be related to pregnancy or recovering?

That is odd: Continued pain as you described is of some concern. You may have scar tissue. There may be some injury to the ureter (the tune from the kidney tintype bladder) which may explain the left-sided back pain though this is not that common in C-sections. Finally, it may be chronic back issues or positional problems even nerve stretching or injuries from the procedure itself though less likely.

I feel very dry no discharge but this is my 10wk of pregnancy sometimes just watery is it normal have backache plus left side pain under lower belly?

Lower belly pain: Often in early pregnancy people experience pain in lower abdomen described as cramping/pulling... This could be due to change in bowel patterns, or stretching of the ligaments attached to your uterus... If very severe pain you should definitely see your doc for an eval.

Having right hip and side pain, last period Feb 22-27, no birth control for over two years. 2 negative pregnancy test. What to do?

See doctor: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.

Can hip pain (both), lower back and side pain, and some stomach pain be normal after pregnancy? (birth by c section. 13 weeks ago). (PAP up to date)

Worth getting check: If your c section was 13 weeks ago things should be getting back to normal by now. If you are having all of these pains in various body parts then it is worth while to get an exam done by your doctor.

6 weeks pregnant, got sudden onset of dull right flank pain, no vaginal bleeding, hcg of >1500. Could these be signs of ectopic pregnancy?

Evaluation: If you are in early pregnancy with new onset of pain then evaluation by your Obgyn is needed. A sonogram can be done to make sure there is a normal pregnancy seen located inside of the uterus.

Itchy skin all over, no fever, decreased appetite, trouble sleeping, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, flank pain, neg pregnancy test, fast heart beat. Help?

Infection: You sound like you have either pelvic inflammatory disease or pyelonephritis - both are serious infections. If you don't have fever, I suspect you either actually do (later in the day) or will soon. You should be seen by your doctor today for a urinalysis and abdominal/pelvic exam.

Take it now: If you are worried about pregnancy, take it now, since you have already had your period. It will likely be negative, but then you know for sure.

After Plan B 2 doses. Increase in vaginal discharges (white), acne, lower abdominal, back and side pain. Period due 8 days. PMS or pregnancy? Test nw?

Get checked: Plan B should not cause pain, acne or discharge. These symptoms should be evaluated by your gynecologist. You can also discuss more effective methods of birth control at your visit. You can check a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant. If negative you will need to repeat it next week to verify.

Sharp right sided pain during 13th wk of pregnancy?

'Round ligaments': Sharp pains in the 'sides of pelvis' in pregnancy may be due to 'stretching of the round ligaments' that hold up the uterus. You need to see your OB for confirmation and to check fetal heart beat, urine tests, etc...
