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

Period 4 days late, 4 negative pregnancy tests, have had sex with condom. Started one birth-c pill, then stopped taking could that cause late period?

May be, repeat test: You may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days unless you get a period by then. 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.

He put a condom on but it wouldn't roll so he flipped it. Could that cause pregnancy since he used the same condom?

He put a condom on but it wouldn't roll so he flipped it. Could that cause pregnancy since he used the same condom?

Depends: Condoms are not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. That understood, if the condom is intact without holes or tears and it is covering the penis before intercourse begins, it is an effective method of contraception. As a barrier to sperm, it does not matter which side is used. ...Read more

I heard that a small tear in a condom IS NOT the reason for pregnancy. Is that true? One of your doctors said that.

I heard that a small tear in a condom IS NOT the reason for pregnancy. Is that true? One of your doctors said that.

Weird question: Intercourse or other activity that introduces sperm into a female during her fertile interval causes pregnancy. It only takes one sperm to do the job and a torn condom can leak more than enough. Your question feels like anger or defensiveness. I cannot comment on how you interpreted the words of another site doc, and find it hard to believe they said what you say. ...Read more

Condom leaked and I gave ecp 2 tablets after one hour and one more tab after 15 hours to my wife. Is it enough to stop pregnancy?

Depends!: Emergency contraception is enough to prevent pregnancy in most cases if taken as directed during window of opportunity (usually within 72 hours for maximum effectiveness, moderate within 120 hours). For instance, altavera, amethia & marlissa etc must be taken as 4 tabs twice 12 hours apart while Levonorgestrel is 1 tab twice 12 hours apart. It's not clear to me what your wife took, if correctly. ...Read more

How likely is it for condom slippage to cause pregnancy if I was ovulating, he ejaculated, and the condom was inside of me for about 48 hours?

How likely is it for condom slippage to cause pregnancy if I was ovulating, he ejaculated, and the condom was inside of me for about 48 hours?

Condom slippage: There is no point in calculating odds here because it is like a regular intercourse at the right time to get pregnant. If not wanting to get pregnant, you should take contraceptive precautions. ...Read more

Days prior to period, bf entered me w/o a condom for about 10 seconds. We stopped, put on a condom, & he came in condom. Can this cause pregnancy?

Days prior to period, bf entered me w/o a condom for about 10 seconds. We stopped, put on a condom, & he came in condom. Can this cause pregnancy?

Low risk but some: An erect penis is secreting sperm containing semen continuously. Any intercourse, even 10 sec, without protection could leave behind the one sperm that is needed for conception. That risk is lower than when a full ejaculate is left but is still possible. ...Read more

Is pregnancy possible if I had a condom on one way flipped it around put it back on, but never had penetration just around the vagina?

Unlikely but possibl: Anytime you do not use a condom correctly, you risk conception. Any of the secretions of the excited penis can contain enough sperm to do the deed, and if they make there way into the female genitalia, they can swim to the prize. Plan to apply the condom before you are fully erect, use it once, and use a new one for any additional activity. If not, try to be prepared for a pregnancy. ...Read more

Can dry hump 2 underwear and 2 jeans and condom cause pregnancy if the boy did ejaculate? Took pill 12 hrs later

NO Chance: Perhaps given your curiosity to reach out to us you can spend fifteen minutes today learning about how babies are made, what ovulation is, and how without sperm deposited inside of the vagina there can not be any babies. You did not need emergency contraception. You had no fresh sperm inside of the vagina. ...Read more

NOT IN NOV: If you had period in nov pregnancy had nothing to do with nov 6. Pregnancy must have happened toward end of november. Can't get pregnant and then have a real period after that. ...Read more

Had sex at 4:00 pm. My condom broke but we still continued. Within the hour we went to get plan B. She is one day before ovulation. Risk of pregnancy?

Had sex at 4:00 pm. My condom broke but we still continued. Within the hour we went to get plan B. She is one day before ovulation. Risk of pregnancy?

Less than 5%: If you take Plan B within 24 hours of intercourse, it is about 95% effective at delaying ovulation (and preventing pregnancy). The catch, of course, is that if she ovulated just before you had intercourse she may have become pregnant prior to taking the Plan B. But 95% effective is pretty good. Condoms are only 80% effective. Best wishes! ...Read more

Are the chance of pregnancy lower if the condom broke one day after my period ended and I took plan b?

Are the chance of pregnancy lower if the condom broke one day after my period ended and I took plan b?

No: Plan b has nothing to do with it. If the condom broke only 1 day after your period ended, it is very unlikely that you ovulated. So adding Plan B to that makes it practically impossible. ...Read more

Should I take a home pregnancy test cause when me an my babydaddy had sex july 28 condom popped an now its august a new month?

Can I be pregnant?: Nope. There is no way a pregnancy test would be positive three days after a sexual encounter.
Now, lets breathe for a moment. You can only get pregnant when you are ovulating. When was your last period? When do you ovulate in your cycle? Was july 28 a high risk day? ...Read more

Sex with condom nov6, 2013. Period nov.14 or 15. Due date frm aug 22 is now aug18, 2014. Sex nov.6 caused pregnancy and the father?

Back to School?: You did not get pregnant before your period. That is not how your body works. You got pregnant the last week of november with either due date. Second, there can be no baby on november 6th if there was no sperm. One cannot become pregnant without an egg and without one sperm meeting at the same time. Your baby was conceived around 11/24/2013. ...Read more

Can precum 6 days before ovulation cause pregnancy? We had sex twice on 4/17. First w/condom, second no condom/pull out method. I ovulated on 4/23.

Not likely: But not because of the pull out method. Because of the remoteness to your ovulation.

Don't risk using the pull out method if you really don't want to be pregnant. ...Read more
