I took a pregnancy test today and I tested positive, twice.

I took a pregnancy test today and I tested positive, twice. The date of my last period was Tuesday January 10th. My cycle is usually 28 days long. I had unprotected sex with someone late at night Wednesday January 25th and then took a plan B pill Friday January 27th at 4:30 PM. I took two first response pregnancy tests Thursday Febuary 2nd (five days before my missed period) both were negative. Then had sex with my ex Saturday early morning February 4th. He also cam inside me twice. I didnt do anything after that. Which is more likely the father? Do you think those first response tests were correct in being negative?

I have been prescribed provera to avoid having a period

Hello,I have been prescribed provera to avoid having a period during a long-planned, very rare getaway with my husband (and without our kids). However, it was suggested that I take it soon to induce a period much earlier than I would have had it, instead of just before my period is due to start, which is what I expected to do. I'm on cycle day 4, still on my period and the trip is in 4 weeks. Will it work to take the provera next week during my follicular phase so I'll be done with it before we leave as the prescribing doctor suggested? Or should I stick with the tried and true plan of starting it just before my period would start (which is also just before the trip) and then stay on it until we're back. I would prefer the first if it would work (I've been on provera during fertility treatments and it makes gives me PMS symptoms, so I would love to be off of it for our trip.) Thanks!

I want to ask a question about my girlfriend. For a few

Hello, i want to ask a question about my girlfriend. For a few months, she's been getting light bleeding during ovulation. Yesterday she had light-pinkish bleeding and today was bright red. She did not use to have this in the past. May I know what is wrong?JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?Customer: She went to see a gynae, and the gynae said at first that she had a low platelet count from eating a Chinese medicine (heavy bleeding during periods). However, she has already stopped taking it and now she's even gotten a more heavy bleeding during ovulation.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Nearly half a year ago, she took Postinor 2, but after that her periods went back to normal and she did not experience these fx much.

I am 28 years old. I am on a birth control pill (Microgestin

Hello,My name is ***** ***** I am 28 years old. I am on a birth control pill (Microgestin Fe 1\20) and I take my pill every day at 8 pm. Sunday early morning I felt sick cause of a virus that the kids I am taking care of, being a nanny, previously had. (I am taking the pill for the past 7 months now and it never gave me any problem).I felt sick around 3 am on Sunday morning and I vomited twice and I had dhyrrea (i took the pill the day before, Saturday, at 8pm). I went to bed around 5 am and I felt ok till around 10 am but then I felt sick the whole day: I did not vomit but I had severe dhyrrea, like every 20-30 minutes till basically the time I had to get my Sunday pill,again at 8pm. I then took my Sunday 8pm pill and I didn't have dhyrrea again until 10.30 pm Sunday night.My question is : what should I do? Should I keep on taking the pill at the same time and am I protected from pregnancy, since the first vomit or dhyrrea starte after 2-3 hours after I took the pill? Or what else should I do?I hope I explained my situation in the proper way.Please let me know,Thank you,Regards,Laura Sbabo

I was wondering - I had loose stools/diarrhea last week on

Hi, I was wondering - I had loose stools/diarrhea last week on Thursday morning (11am) and I had taken my birth control the night before at 10pm. It was a 13 hour difference so I'm just wondering if my birth control would have been absorbed completely by the time I had loose stools that Thursday morning? I'm on micronor (progesterone only)

I was told that Quai may help with my ovarian cyst "shriken"

I was told that Dong Quai may help with my ovarian cyst "shriken" process. I do have a concern this does not apply to me because I still get a period? Hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Dong quai might act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don't use dong quai.

My girlfriend has her period late by now five days, and I'm

Hi - my girlfriend has her period late by now five days, and I'm not sure if it's late because she's pregnant, or if she's been quite sick (stomach flu, cold) the past couple of weeks. Some facts:1. We never had sexual intercourse, and I never ejaculated when we were together the three times during her cycle.2. Her last period started on Dec. 6, and was due around Jan. 6.3. We were together on Dec. 12, Dec. 25, and Dec. 31.4. I'm concerned with precum, where it might have entered her during grinding or fingering5. My penis was only in contact near her vagina twice--once on Dec. 25 where it was on the inside of her leg, but not near the opening; and on Dec. 31 when I believe my penis was moving around her lips on her vagine5. I masturbate usually once a day, in the morning, but take a shower right after and because I drink lots of coffee and water, I urinate quite often6. She was quite sick over the Christmas week, to the point where she wasn't eating much and was in bed quite a bit. She also recently had a head cold.7. She said she was spotting a bit on Dec. 228. She says now that she has PMS type symptoms, of cramping9. I am 36 years old, mildly obese (257 lbs at 6 feet) and she's 33, and mildy overweightI'll be buying a pregnancy test for when I see her this weekend, but, obviously I'm super concerned now. From what I read in another answer the chances of pregnancy *could* be around 1% or less.Thanks ahead of time for your help,Ben
