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.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can a girl get pregnant if she has sex during her period?

Can a girl get pregnant if she has sex during her period?

Yes.: Young women (teenagers especially) have erratic menstrual cycles and ovulate unpredictably. If the unhygienic practice of vaginal intercourse during menstruation happens to coincide with an ovulatory event, then you can and will get pregnant with up to 30% chance per cycle. Remember that sperm lives for up to 5 days in your genital tract, thus conception can occur after intercourse. Folate (folic acid) 1-5 mg! ...Read more

If u have unprotected sex 5 days before she got her period can she be pregnant? She has irregular cycle and missed her period for 2 months before that

If u have unprotected sex 5 days before she got her period can she be pregnant? She has irregular cycle and missed her period for 2 months before that

Hmmm....: Women who have an irregular cycle do not know when they are 5 days before their next period, because they don't know when their next period is supposed to come (the best they can do is guess). That's why such women's menstrual periods are called "irregular." If having pregnancy worries, one can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. The results are very accurate by that time. ...Read more

Will a pregnant woman or her baby get sick if she does painting during pregnancy?

Will a pregnant woman or her baby get sick if she does painting during pregnancy?

Maybe!: Many painting products are toxic and can potentially cause harm. Painting in a home is likely better left to other non-pregnant people. If you must, use of a mask during painting is suggested. Be sure the room is well ventilated during and after painting, and if possible use low-fume and rapid drying materials. Also, be sure to avoid direct skin contact with the paint as much as possible. ...Read more

How can a woman get her period while pregnant?

How can a woman get her period while pregnant?

She cannot: During a normal menstrual period, a woman's uterus sheds (loses) its lining, leading to the bleeding... and she gets a new lining the next cycle. If she were pregnant, and replaced the lining of her uterus, the pregnancy would be lost too. Pregnant women do get vaginal bleeding sometimes, but it is not a menstrual period (even if it sort of looks like one). ...Read more

My wife was prescribed metformin to get pregnant.  How long should she continue taking it after she is pregnant.?

1st Trimester: Most physicians have women stop taking metformin sometime in the 1st trimester. Typically women on metformin also have some Insulin resistance, it's important to have a glucose tolerance test in the 1st trimester to check for gestational diabetes. I recommend women go off their metformin after getting pregnant, have the glucose test and then use more typical agents for glucose control if need. ...Read more

If she has sex a day before her period and she does get pregnant, will she see her period the next day ?

Either...Or...but: ...not Both. Both cannot happen. Humans cannot get pregnant and have a menstrual period the next day. Having the period means a woman did not just get pregnant the day before. However, a woman can get pregnant the day before her EXPECTED period date (usually due to ovulating later than usual), but then she would not get her menstrual period. Pregnant women do not have regular menstrual periods. ...Read more

I'm curious: If a woman ovulates during her period when is she going to get her next menstruation?

I'm curious: If a woman ovulates during her period when is she going to get her next menstruation?

Impossible: a true menstration will always occur 2 weeks after an ovulation that does not undergo fertilization. It is not possible to release an egg when you are bleeding because in order to bleed you had to have released an egg previously and it takes too much time for another to develop. ...Read more

If a girl had sex on her period or right after her period how likely is she to get pregnant?

Possible: Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy. People are not as predictable as we might like and both sperm and egg have been known to be viable longer than expected. Always use condoms for std protection and another effective birth control method when you have sex, if being a parent is not something you want at this time! ...Read more

If a women is breastfeeding and does not get her period is she pregnant?

Not usually: Typically a woman who is breastfeeding does not ovulate for several months she therefore will not have a period. Since it is hard to know when ovulation (egg release) will resume, birth control of some sort should be used, however, --assuming that another pregnancy is not an immediate goal. ...Read more

I am currently breastfeeding, just started NoraBe a week ago but I haven't had my period yet for almost 4 months and I have sex. Can I get pregnant?

Stopped breastfeeding 6 mo old & had what I thought was period.  It lasted 2 days 48 days ago. No period again, neg pregnancy tests. Can I get preg?

Probably yes.: It can take up to 2 years for normal hormone levels to return to normal. Lactation does affect ability to get pregnant and the use of prolonged breastfeeding is an acceptable way to try to prevent subsequent pregnancies. Levels have to be normal usually to sustain pregnancy. If trying to get pregnant, I would discuss with your OB-GYN. ...Read more

How can I get pregnant where breastfeeding for two years? Two periods in a months sumthing i try to get pregnant 4 times no results?

Yes: You can get pregnant while breastfeeding - i can have you meet my second child - a product of just that ( and by the way, he's a great man now). However, your ovulation is much more sporadic, so knowing when you are fertile and ovulating is much more difficult to determine and you usually don't ovulate as often, so it may take longer to get pregnant while still nursing. ...Read more

I am currently breastfeeding and want to get pregnant again. I am yet to menstruate so is it possible I have been ovulating? Can I "bring on" periods?

Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding every 4 hours during the day and 6 hours during the night makes ovulation almost impossible. You cannot bring your periods while breastfeeding. It is the way of nature arranging things so you can help your baby grow. Once you start ovulating the milk production will stop soon. ...Read more

I breast feed why i can't get pregnant again..Get two periods in one month? Why?

I breast feed why i can't get pregnant again..Get two periods in one month? Why?

Prolactin and cycle.: When you breast feed, the hormone prolactin is secreted by the pituitary glad to aid in milk let down for the baby. Prolactin causes the secretion of fsh and lh by the pituitary to be suppressed, so the ovaries may respond with no or irregular cycles. You may begin to ovulate and cycle by 6 to 9 months postpartum, so some people get pregnant breast feeding. Hope this helps! ...Read more

No period a year after birth. not breastfeeding nor pregnant. is that normal?

Not normal: Studies show that most nonlactating women will not ovulate until 6 weeks postpartum. 70% have had return of ovulation by 12 weeks.
