Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Could be either: Nausea could be from pregnancy, but Midcycle bleeding could be because you forgot to take the pill on a daily basis. Remember that all bleeding is not your period, it could just be breakthrough bleeding. Check a pregnancy test to be sure. it's important to know earlier rather than later if you're pregnant and don't want to be. despite access issues across the country, abortion is safe and legal ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I had my menses on the 2nd  finished on 5th. When am i suppose to have my ovulation? And when can I have sex to conceive?

Midcycle: To figure out your approximate day of ovulation take your cycle length and subtract 14 days. So for 27 day cycles it would be day 13, for 28 day cycles day 14, for 29 day cycles day 15 etc. If you do not have regular cycles then you need to see a fertility specialist for evaluation. ...Read more

Placebo row: If you are taking birth control pills, you will have a period when you start the placebo (non hormone) row.

Pregnancy: If you are healthy and have sex without optimal protection you are always at risk of becoming pregnant. Why wonder? Do a pregnancy test. They are very sensitive and turn positive extremely early in pregnancy but not reliably until 2-3 weeks after sex. If you still wonder, repeat in one-two weeks later and your answer will be as sure as is possible without going to see MD. ...Read more

Home Preg Test: Do home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, unlikely you are pregnant. May just have been a little late with period so more lining builds up that needs to be shed by the uterus and thus a little longer and heavier period. If next 1-2 periods also not normal for you, see your gyn provider for eval. Hope this was helpful. Dr R ...Read more

Pregnancy test?: It's always a good idea to take a pregnancy test if you have had sex and your period isn't normal. If the test is negative (and if your last unprotected sex was more than 14 days ago), then you can feel safe. Sometimes periods are early, late, or different for no good reason. Sometimes it's stress, illness, travel, or weight changes. If it only happens occasionally, then i wouldn't worry. ...Read more
