Dear Ms Ultrasound,
Dear Ms Ultrasound,
Hello. I was wondering if you have ever heard of taking Medroxyprogestrone or Provera for an irregular period while trying to conceive. I would be taking it for 10 days then start a period within 3-4 days. Start the first day of my period as day 1, 10 days later I start testing for ovululation. Then after ovulation occurs, we are to have sex every other day for a week. If no positive for pregnancy then I start the pills again on the 1st of each month.
I'm almost nineteen and my boyfriend and I have decided to start trying to get pregnant, but I have a few questions.
First, almost two years ago I got a pap and they said I had HPV. I got treatment for it and went back the next year and they said everything was fine. Could I still have it and if I do could HPV harm my baby when I am pregnant or giving birth?
Second, I still have my hymen, the skin that is supposed to go away when your younger. Should I get it removed before giving birth?
Many of us have spent the last several weeks indulging in second and third portions of foods we ordinarily might avoid. Instead of saying "No thank you," we say, "It's the holidays!" But good cheer aside, drinking and feasting during the holidays can lead to serious weight gain.
Dear Fitness Expert,
I haven't been diagnosed with PCOS, but it not only runs in the family, but I have seen my cysts through sonogram. I started working out about a month ago. After the first two days of exercising I started to get a sharp pain on the left side of my abdomen. I thought that I might be pregnant since I was about two weeks late. But, my HPT came up negative.
Can I get pregnant the first day after my period?
Dear Relationship Expert,
Hi, I am 30 years old and dying to have a baby but my husband does not care about this desire and he JUST ignores it. He does not have any other kids. This is his first marriage and his first relation. I don't know what to do.
The first step is to inform your regular Obstetrician/Gynecologist that you are ready to talk about getting pregnant and you would like to schedule an appointment. This article lists the routine questions and tests that I recommend to my patients.
