I'm on a very high fiber, dairy, folate (folic acid) diet. What are the chances of conceiving twins? My periods are spot on regular. I know genes play a huge role.

I'm on a very high fiber, dairy, folate (folic acid) diet. What are the chances of conceiving twins? My periods are spot on regular. I know genes play a huge role.

Diet irrelevant: Your diet may affect your chances for pregnancy in certain situations, but it would be unlikely to affect your chances for twins. The normal incidence of twins is about 1 % but the risk is higher with fertility drugs and if you have a family history. Most of the twins you see around the community these days are from fertility treatment. ...Read more

How soon after a mirena (levonorgestrel) extraction can u get pregnant? And can you get pregnamt on ur period

How soon after a mirena (levonorgestrel) extraction can u get pregnant? And can you get pregnamt on ur period

Immediately: As soon as you remove the iud, you should consider yourself fertile. If pregnancy is not in your plans, you need protection. You can't get pregnant on your period if you're truly having a period, i.e., shedding your endometrial lining. The problem is life is not precise; nor are periods. Bleeding you take to be a period may not be, and you may be dangerously close to releasing an egg. ...Read more

I just had twin boys via cesarean section and got the mirena iud as birth control I've had it for almost 2 month. And have been experiencing bleeding non-stop no pain or anything just annoying bleeding is this cuz of my cesarean or cuz my iud?

The IUD: Mirena (levonorgestrel) is a progestin only method. As such, irregular bleeding is very common. For the first 3 to 6 months with Mirena (levonorgestrel)
• Your period may be less predictable than usual
• Bleeding and spotting may increase and continue to be irregular. Periods over time may become shorter, lighter or even stop
• Your periods may stop altogether for as long as you have Mirena (levonorgestrel) ...Read more

Me and my sons father had sex about 5 days ago and we used protection but we plan to have sex again unprotected is that okay with the mirena (levonorgestrel)?

If trying to get...: If trying to get pregnant (presuming 28 day cycles), be sure to have sex twice a day starting from day 11-12, for six days. Be happy, enjoy life, and don't think about pregnancy too much. It will happen when it happens, and if half a year goes by with nothing happening, then ask the doctor about it. Start on prenatal vitamins, to help prevent certain types of birth defects when pregnancy happens. ...Read more

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

No: I've never hear that statistic before. Twins have a genetic susceptibility (meaning they run in families). Being older at conception (like late 30s) also increases chances. To my knowledge pregnancy after a miscarriage doesn't increase chance. ...Read more

Hi, I have an AMH level of 32,4 pmol/L. I am 35 years old (soon 36). My FSH is 5.6 and my AFC is 13. What are my chances of conceiving?

Not exact: Hi. I know of no nomogram relating those 3 variables (doesn't mean one doesn't exist; gyn fertility might have a more exact estimate), but off the cuff, I'd say your chances are pretty good, assuming there are no male factor issues. Make sure you practice a lot! ;-)
Good luck! ...Read more

I had chlymidia for a long time before I knew I had it and wish to conceive I would like to know what treatments can improve my chances of conceiving

Evaluation: The major issue is scar tissue and damage to the fallopian tubes. I would recommend a xray to see if the tubes are open. If the tubes are both open and appear normal there is really nothing else you need to do. If there is a problem on the xray, then you are facing surgery or ivf to help you out. ...Read more

If I had my period on 30th of sept and it ended the 4th of October and I had sex on the 6st of October what are my chances of conceiving?

Less than 20%: Intercourse 6 days after the start of your period is less likely to result in a pregnancy. Most women ovulate sometime between days 12-16. Your chance of pregnancy is less than 20%. However,; timing as a means of contraception is a notoriously imperfect method of contraception. If you don't want to get pregnant, use contraception. If that fails, there is always Plan-B.

Ttc. Went for a walk an hour after intercourse. It was 87 degrees out. Could this have raised my core body temp. And hurt my chances of conceiving?

Ttc. Went for a walk an hour after intercourse. It was 87 degrees out. Could this have raised my core body temp. And hurt my chances of conceiving?

No: Going for a walk in warm weather is not going to affect your chance of conceiving. I hope that you are taking pre-natal vitamins. If you miss your period by 5 or more days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I'm 36 y/o, have had nl hsg, afc=6 (over a yr ago). Have been ttc for >8 mos. Amh=0.4. What are my chances of conceiving naturally? Is Clomid (clomiphene) an option

I'm 36 y/o, have had nl hsg, afc=6 (over a yr ago). Have been ttc for >8 mos. Amh=0.4. What are my chances of conceiving naturally? Is Clomid (clomiphene) an option

Low: A normal amh for your age is between 2-4. Even 1.5 would be borderline. An amh of 0.4 is quite low meaning there are fewer eggs in your body than normally for your age. There is also probably a lower quality of eggs and maybe even a higher rate of genetic abnormalities. . So the downside to trying on your own is if you are not successful, treatment may not help later on. ...Read more
