Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina.

Basic biology: The "pull out" method is based on the idea that as long as you "pull out" before delivering the "load" pregnancy will not occur. However, it only takes a single sperm, present in all the mucous secretions (semen) of the penis during intercourse. You may cut your risks a small amount, but plan for parenthood if this is your plan. ...Read more

I haven't ovulated in six months. My menstral cycle is just starting today! What are my chances of trying to get pregnant?

See a REI specialist: Your chances are lower than average but not zero. See a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinologist) to find out why you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) very often: could be pcos, thyroid or prolactin hormone issues, low egg supply, or low hormone levels due to stress, exercise, eating disorders. Your chances depend on your age and the reason you're not ovulating - treatment will help. ...Read more

Get checked out: You're ovulating around days 31-36. At 22 you can try for 6 months before seeing a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinology and infertility or rei) to find out why you have long cycles - could be polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), thyroid or prolactin problems, low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve) or low hormone levels from stress or exercise. Treatment will help you get pregnant. ...Read more

Hi, I took 3 ipills in the gap of 1 week in starting of jan'17 then after 20 days had my Menstrual cycle. Bt I having stomachache since. M I pregna?

Can do preg. Test: Three i-Pills in 1 week means something is wrong. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If she gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
