I took birth control for one month to regulate my period will I be fertile when I take them?

Not fertile unless.. A woman taking birth control pills (for whatever reason) should not be fertile unless she misses a pill or two, has trouble taking them at the same time each day, or has an illness or problem that makes it difficult to absorb the hormone medication from the pills. If worried about being fertile, she can use condoms in addition to the pills. Read more...

I've always had an irregular period, birth control helped but I've stopped using it. I haven't had my period for 5 months now & worry about fertility?

Other workup? I assume you have discussed this at some point with your doctor if you were on birth control pills, but did they do any other workup- blood work, ultrasound? Not having regular periods definitely affects fertility so if you are thinking of getting pregnant, I would see your doctor for further workup to see if your periods can be regulated to make you more fertile. .

Can oral birth control pills permanently affect a womans fertility after stopping it? My wife still hasn't had a normal period months after stopping.

No, not at all. The oral contraceptive pills will not change your fertility as this is an old myth from the days when the higher dose pills were used extensively. Patients who had irregular anovulatory menstrual flows were often placed on the pill to "regulate" their cycles as young women. Then when it was stopped to get pregnant,, their periods went back to their previous irregularity and the pill was "blamed". Read more...

Condom busted on a high fertility day but I use to be on birth control, but I stopped, now I have a period every other month could I get pregnant?

Absolutely Yes. Anytime you have unprotected sex near (and before) you ovulate you're taking a chance on getting pregnant. Odds on conceiving are dependent on frequency of sex for you and ejaculates for your partner. Average couples will conceive about 85% of the time in a 12 month time period. Your statistical odds are about 7%...Safe sex every time! Read more...
Absolutely. Though unlikely if you are regularly irregular. If you have menses every 60 days consistently, then you typically ovulate 60 minus 14 (typical length of post-ovulatory phase)= day 46. But never count on this as your body can always ovulate when you least expect it! Read more...

Hello. . Hello. I am not sure what the wed gooey mucus is. Sometimes when the embryo implants in the wall of the uterus, there can be some blood (spotting). Spotting is often pink or it can be brown. Do not know if you are pregnant. If you don't get your period on time, recommend taking a home pregnancy test. The early pregnancy test can be taken prior to that. Take care. Read more...
