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

How come I cramp when I exercise even though I am not on my period?

How come I cramp when I exercise even though I am not on my period?

Blood flow : Exercise moves blood out of your organs and into your muscles. If your organs were busy doing something like digesting food, the sudden rerouting of blood flow can cause the functioning of the organ to be disturbed because it is suddenly getting less oxygen. That's why warming up and not eating right before exercise helps easy the transition. See your doctor if that persists after trying this. ...Read more

Because I have irregular periods, how can I tell when i ovulate?

Because I have irregular periods, how can I tell when i ovulate?

Get checked out: If you're very irregular get checked out right away to find out why; if you're having long cycles like 35-40 days you could use an ovulation predictor kit but will go through many sticks. An ob/gyn or reproductive endocrinology & infertility md can find out why you're irregular, checking for pcos or other hormone problems or low egg supply. Knowing the reason should help you to conceive faster. ...Read more

I am 16 and have really bad pelvic pain since i was 12 what should I do I also have irregular periods how do I tell mom what would gyno do about this?

See OB/GYN: Your profile states you're 43 years old, and then your question states you're 16 years old. So that leaves a question as to which doctor you should be seeing. If you're 16 years old, you should be seeing your pediatrician to discuss this. Having pelvic pain for four years is not normal. This has to be evaluated further along with your irregular periods. Until a complete gynecological, pelvic, and abdominal exams are done, it's difficult to determine a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I want to have a baby sooo bad, but due to my past irregular menstrual cycles idk exactly when I ovulate. What should I do?

If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. Why the urgency to get pregnant at age 19? Consider focusing on your career and education at this special time in your life ...Read more

How do I know when Im ovulating?
I have a irregular period.

Can be hard to tell: When you have irregular periods, it becomes more difficult to pinpoint when you ovulate. There are ovulation predictor kits (OPK) that you can buy over the counter. They detect LH surges (urine test). These are often frustrating to use for women with irregular menses. More accurate way is to have your doctor follow you with transvaginal sonograms and blood work (progesterone levels). ...Read more
