No cream, ointment, or medicine exists that does this task, but lots of snake oil is for sale out there! (and lots of gullible buyers) beware! Read more

If one looks back at the course of events, and doesn't see any time when there was both an egg and sperm in the same location, then pregnancy is not possible. That being said, life can surprise you sometimes. That's why fertile couples having sexual play activities have to be ready for that rare "surprise baby". Read more

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. Read more
