According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Iud and pregnancy: Home pregnancy tests are accurate but not the best. They can be the first useful tool in diagnosing early pregnancy before you get to your doctor. Iud's do not influence or interfere with results of home pregnancy test or any pregnancy test at all. ...Read more

Got the IUD out nov16 & I just had unprotected sex today will I get pregnant? & how long will it take for me to take a pregnancy test?

See below: You could get pregnant from the sex, if you ovulate within 4-5 days after the sex. You may do a blood test for HCG in about three weeks. Better would be to do a home pregnancy test if you miss your period by 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I don't feel my iud string n I think I might be pregnant n I took a home pregnancy test twice n it came back negative n I get symptoms of pregnancy?

Blood test: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to both is yes, you may wish to get a blood test for HCG. Or you could repeat the hpt in a week or so. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

I've been feeling pregnant! I'm on the IUD though! I took 3 pregnancy test and they were all negative! I've ben having nausea headaches & dizzyness!

Its been 39 days since my last period I removed my IUD may 5th had a 5day period pregnancy test show negative should I wait. Also does fertleaid work?

Its been 39 days since my last period I removed my IUD may 5th had a 5day period pregnancy test show negative should I wait. Also does fertleaid work?

Not unusual: Sometimes, especially if you had the Mirena, (levonorgestrel) it takes a few months for your periods to become regular again. This isn't terribly unusual, but you may need to take a pregnancy test every 30 days or so that goes by without bleeding if you aren't using protection. Yes, FertileAid does work, that's how I got pregnant!! ...Read more

I removed my IUD paraguard on my ovulation day which was on 7/18/13 I got a positive pregnancy test on 8/5/13 how far along am i?

I removed my IUD paraguard on my ovulation day which was on 7/18/13 I got a positive pregnancy test on 8/5/13 how far along am i?

5 weeks: You could have conceived as soon as you removed iud. Even so, you would only be about 5 weeks along, meaning that you've been pregnant for about 3 weeks. As you know, pregnancies are dated from last menstrual period, not ovulation or conception. Likely in 2-3 weeks you should be able to see a heart beat on ultrasound. Hope that helps! ...Read more

What are the odds of getting pregnant with the IUD mirena (levonorgestrel) I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive twice. What should I do?

What are the odds of getting pregnant with the IUD mirena (levonorgestrel) I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive twice. What should I do?

See a GYN MD now: Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud's, like all iud's, prevent pregnancies by preventing implantation of a already fertilized egg into the lining of the uterus. (endometrium) two positive tests indicate that you are pregnant, but the question is where? . The uterus or elsewhere. (tube) see a md to sort this out as tubal pregnancies are common when iud's fail. ...Read more

How regular r u?: If you experienced irregular menses before the iud was inserted and depending on which iud you were using, you may return to your baseline of irregular menses also- there are a lot of details missing from this question that make it hard to answer any more clearly. ...Read more

Couple of weeks: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

Hi my girlfriend is late on her period by 8 days, 2 days ago we did a pregnancy test and it was negative. About a week and a half ago she was bleeding almost all day but it stopped. She has an IUD on, never had a problem before. Can she be pregnant or it

Not likely: The change in her period may be due to effects of the hormone from the IUD depending on the type of IUD she has. But to confirm that she is not pregnant she should repeat the urine test and also have a blood test done. It is best she be seen for a vaginal examination. ...Read more

I had my iud removed last week and had a positive blood pregnancy test on Monday and a negative on Thursday. Is there a chance the negative could be wrong? I feel so pregnant but not due for period for another week. What are my odds. I want to be pregnant

I had my iud removed last week and had a positive blood pregnancy test on Monday and a negative on Thursday. Is there a chance the negative could be wrong? I feel so pregnant but not due for period for another week. What are my odds. I want to be pregnant

Testing too soon: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more
