Why should I be expected to have sex when pregnant? I feel like a whale

You shouldn't: First, it is safe to have sex for most women during pregnancy. But it isn't an obligation. For many women, interest in sex is closely tied to how we feel about ourselves, or lives and our partners. No one should expect sex however. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

I don't know when I'm ovulating because I don't have my period and I think I may be pregnant so when should I take a test or should I go to the obgyn?

I don't know when I'm ovulating because I don't have my period and I think I may be pregnant so when should I take a test or should I go to the obgyn?

It's ok to test: You don't say why you think you're pregnant, but it's not likely that you are. However - a test or exam would not hurt. The most common reason for amenorrhea is NOT ovulating. But I suppose it might be from another cause for you. While at an OBGYN, ask for as much info as you can on your condition and possible treatment. Best! ...Read more

I m 11weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy .I would like to ask can I have intercourse. I m little bit worried. My baby will be safe.

Absolutely: As long as you do not have a high risk pregnancy this is perfectly fine. The cervix is very delicate in early pregnancy, however, so do not be surprised if you have a little spotting afterwards. Also, sometimes your uterus can contact, which may lead to some mild cramping. ...Read more

Symptoms : Symptoms of pregnancy can include nausea (morning sickness) or vomiting. A woman may experience pelvic/abdominal cramping as well as small amounts of vaginal bleeding. Swollen breasts, the need to urinate more often and mood swings may occur. You could also become constipated or develop aversions or cravings for certain foods. If you may be pregnant, take prenatal vitamins. Even if you can not see a doctor at this time, you can use a home pregnancy test. It is important to know if you are pregnant. Women who are pregnant need prenatal health care. ...Read more

I get extremely bloated every time I need to pee. I could even pass as if I was pregnant. It doesn't hurt though. What could it be?

I get extremely bloated every time I need to pee. I could even pass as if I was pregnant. It doesn't hurt though. What could it be?

Feellike never empty: Does it feel like you can never empty your bladder? The fact that you get extremely bloated every time you need to pee sounds like you can't completely empty your bladder. I would advise you visit your doc, so that he/she can do a history, physical and lab tests. Perhaps you have an infection and that is preventing your bladder from fully contracting. ...Read more

Will it be hard for me to get pregnant if i don't know when i ovulate but i still have sex every other day?

Will it be hard for me to get pregnant if i don't know when i ovulate but i still have sex every other day?

It can: If you have regular predictable menstrual cycles, you are most likely ovulating, so intercourse every other day starting about 10 days after starting your period can help cover the fertile window. But if your cycles are irregular and occur more than 35 days apart, you likely are not ovulating and should see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

Ok i can't really get lubricated enough to have sex and when I do I have a white smelly discharge , after I have sex it smells l i just want to know what wrong

Ok i can't really get lubricated enough to have sex and when I do I have a white smelly discharge , after I have sex it smells l i just want to know what wrong

A : A smelly vaginal discharge is always cause for concern. You could be dealing with an infection. Most likely a bacterial infection called bacterial vaginosis(bv). If not then you could be dealing with a yeast infection or even an std. Regardless you need to be seen by your primary care provider or gynecoloist for an exam, testing, and treatment. I am not so sure if the fact that you are not getting lubricated is related to the discharge. Regardless, you can see if this problem resolves after you are treated; if not you may need a vaginal lubricant, which can be purchased at your local pharmacy. If you are post menopausal then you may be dealing with vainal atrophy, which could cause the vaina to be dry. If this is the case your provider can give you estrogen cream if indicated. Good luck. ...Read more

What does it mean when you haven't had your period for 5 months and you take a test but yet it says negative, but you feel moving im young and never experienced this before im a lil afraid .

Not : Not having your period for five months is very concerning. You should re-take a pregnancy test, but if you still aren't sure then you could have a blood pregnancy test at your doctor's office. You need to have a complete gynecological examination because of not having your period for so long. ...Read more

I'm 8 weeks pregnant. I feel very tired and I hate being pregnant right now. I feel like I don't want to continue with this pregnancy anymore. Is it normal to have this feelings?

Not unusual: 8 weeks is a hard time for a lot of woman. From your history I see that you have had 2 children so you know what a commitment it is. Your hormones are in full swing and that makes everything hard. It is best to be honest and recognize how you feel, but also that you might The question is, how depressed are you? ...Read more

I am 32 male sometimes after sex it feel like i have to pee and i pee alittle then i have do it again what can this be ?

Difficulty urinating: After sex, it is possible for secretions in the female to irritate the male urethra (tube in the penis) and swelling can result as well as the feeling of urgency to urinate. This can persist for a time and the irritation produced can produce recurrent urgency. Even with condoms, the lubricant can irritate the urethra, so see your healthcare provider for advice. ...Read more
