Ovulation Period Pregnancy

Jenny asks…

pregnancy. period. ovulation. question. help please :]?

what is the average months of a newly couple ttc?
also recently- meaning period didnt come in may. it showed up in june. didnt get it this month & it was definitely suppose to get it. this week my nipple were extremely sore, i threw up once & my temp. was really high. ive always got my period on time every month since i was 12. so what could possibly trigger this? i also took two equate [walmart brand] pregnancy test & both test showed a very very faint negative line. but the control window had a dark purple line indicating it was working. so how could i possibly know when im ovulating if my periods are going to be like this? my husband and i just recently started to concieve.. we were aiming for this month. also when my husband and i did have sex i usually stand up to clean up myself & the *** comes out, so could that also have a roll why we didnt concieve this month?
please help me
and baby dust to everyone.
also the pregnancy test was a+/- test.
i got a very faint – in the window its suppose to show you the answer. & a very dark purple line in the control window to the right of it.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The wiping shouldnt make a difference.

I suggest you take the “First Response” ovulation test.

This test lets you know when you will/are ovulatiing so you have a better chance to concieve a baby.


Susan asks…

Repeat question.. pregnancy/period/ovulation help!?

Was 15 days late for my period when I got a very unusual light flow. Two weeks before that I was having a lot more discharge than usual (i thought it was because i was pregnant..tests since then have shown i am not) but im confused on if the discharge could have been ovulation, seeing as my last NORMAL period was April 1st. Could i just have had a delayed ovulation, causing a delayed period, and i could in fact be pregnant now? (I had unprotected sex a few times during the increased discharge) I know its too early to test or even feel symptoms, but id just like some other opinions on what could have happened??

Please no rude comments. And thank you to those who help!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Plz get your pregnancy test done since your last period was on 1st April so in case you get your urine tasted the result will come.

Lizzie asks…

Ovulation and pregnancy?

I am due my period on 26th december and i ovulated 13th december, my cycle this month was 24 day cycle which is normal for me. I just took a clearblue pregnancy test and it came out as not pregnant, did i test too early? and should i try again sometime early next week or on the day my period should come?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Dear Tara, I hope if U TTC, U Will get UR Christmas gift& a very Happy New year. All said, Dear allow me to give U more info on top of UR info. On the way U count & test. Now UR last had unprotected sex were you ovulating or a 2 days b4 or after since the sperm can swim inside U for 4 to 5 days & you releasing eggs almost on a daily basis so that will also will come into play. So U know what Stress & anxiety does 2UR period let alone all UR physical health in general so please TTC Stress & anxiety R, UR Enemies it will effect your getting pregnant & UR overall health. All said, If U take out the stress factor& then only base it on unprotected sex here how U calculate UR cycle.,& do HPT. B4 you decide when 2 take a pregnancy test, it helps to understand how they work. The tests detect pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), in UR urine.Some tests also detect a variation of this hormone, known as hCG (H-hCG). The regular hCG is produced only after an embryo implants in2 the endometrium, while H-hCG begins 2B released earlier, some time after fertilization. When pregnancy tests tell U how much hormone they detect, they usually tell U how much hCG the test requires. A woman’s level of H-hCG, though, is typically higher than hCG. The majority of pregnancy tests R not sensitive to the hormone H-hCG. If a pregnancy test does detect H-hCG, you’re more likely 2 get a positive result early. If a pregnancy test is not sensitive to H-hCG,& only detects regular hCG, getting an early positive result is less likely. The great majority of pregnancy tests on the market, unfortunately,R not great at detecting H-hCG. It’s imp. 2 know that these tests assume a 14-day luteal phase. (That’s the time between ovulation & when U get UR period.) If UR luteal phase is usually 12 days, four days B4 UR missed period would be 9 days after ovulation. Way too early 2 test. If U have a luteal phase of 15 days, though, 4 days before your missed period is 12 days after ovulation. U still may not have enough hormone that early, but you’ve got a much better chance than someone with a shorter luteal phase. If U read the instructions carefully, they are promising 99% accuracy on the day of your missed period & not for early results. If U expect UR period on Wednesday, Thursday would B the day of UR missed period. These promises of 99% accuracy, however, may not B true. U hardly/ rarely get a False positive. Something else2 consider is whether U know if UR period is even late. If U chart your basal body temperature and you know how long your average luteal phase is and you see that you’re 2 days past UR longest luteal phase, then U can be pretty darn sure UR period is late. If U don’t chart UR cycles, though, how can U know if UR period is late? What if UR cycles R irregular? STRESS DOES IT. If you want to avoid false negatives, the best time 2 take a pregnancy test is after your period’s late. If your cycles are irregular or you don’t chart your cycles, I wouldn’t take a test until you’ve past the longest menstrual cycle you usually have. If UR cycles range from 30 to 36 days, the best time 2 take a test would be day 37 or later. Having sex at least three to four times a week boosts your chances for success not all week U need time 4 the sperm 2 accumulate & have better chance in conceiving. It increases the possibility of having sex on UR most fertile days. If you’re only aiming for ovulation,& U make a mistake, you may totally lose that month. If U have sex every other day or every two days, you’re likely to have sex at least once, if not twice, during UR most fertile time. Frequent sex improves sperm health. Healthier swimmers means you’ll be more likely 2 conceive.Sex after ovulation may even help with conception.2B clear, U can’t conceive if U only have sex after ovulation.U could even aim to have sex every day of UR cycle, but 4 most PPL., this will lead to burnout, and lower sperm count. Nutrition plays a big roll in having healthy fertility & experiencing a healthy pregnancy. Nutritional deficiencies have been linked 2 ovulation issues, hormonal imbalances, poor egg health, low sperm count & so much more. We R literally what we eat. Every cell in our bodies that makes up our organs,crates hormones & enzymes that make us function is created by the food we eat & the nutrients we take in.the best known vitamins necessary 4 pregnancy is folic acid.women who do not get sufficient amounts of iron may suffer lack of ovulation & possibly poor egg health, which can inhibit pregnancy.Zinc:In women, zinc works with more than 300 diff. Enzymes in the body 2 keep things working well..Also make sure that the multivitamin U choose contains the essential fertility nutrients mentioned above. Clearblue& 1st. Responder R good ones. U test Early Morning Urine B4 Any Fluids intake of any kind or food. Eat Healthy NO stress or Anxiety & I hope U will get UR wish this Christmas have a healthy happy pregnancy..

Betty asks…

Ovulation…pregnancy?…oncoming period?…not sure?

My cycle is usually between 28-30 days. I had sex with my husband on the 17th, and ovulated on the 20th. For the past couple days I’ve been really tired, and cramping. My cervix is high and soft, and I have alot of creamy white discharge. My period is not due to arrive until the 2nd of the May.

Can anyone explain to me what this might mean. Could I have gotten my ovulation timing wrong? Could I be pregnant?(no spotting yet) Or are these just signs that my period is coming?

I could really use some serious advice.
I also took a ovulation test and it came out positive. so I am 4DPO

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Hey, you may have got your ovulation dates wrong because it is unusual for your cervix to be high, soft and open so long after ovulation. However, since you used OPK’s it is pretty much a sure thing you have ovulated and your probably still have remnants of estrogen in your system resulting in your cervix position! The creamy CM, tiredness and cramping could be the result of pregnancy, but it may also be signs of yourr period. It’s too early to tell.
Just watch out for your signs, keep temping if you are and keep an eye out for consistently high temps past 2nd May. Otherwise, wait until 2nd May and test with 1st morning urine.
The only other thing i can say is not everyone experiences spotting, implantation bleeding only happens to 30% of women.
I hope these signs are pregnancy signs for you, but i’m afraid we all just have to play the waiting game! I’m right there with u babes, i’m due tomorrow n no signs yet!
Good luck!! Xxx

please help me
baby dust to everyone

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It can take the average healthy couple 6-12 months to conceive. That is considered normal. There is only a 25% percent chance of conceiving every month. You have a small fertile window of about 6-7 days each month. You start to become fertile 6-7 days prior to ovulation, are at high fertility 3 days prior, and at your peak fertility the day before and the day of ovulation. Most pregnancies are the result of intercourse that had taken place the 3 days prior to ovulation. Sperm can live in our bodies for 5-7 days, but on average, only 3. Your egg only lives for 12-24 hours after being released, but sometimes lives as short as 6.

There are lots of things that can throw your cycle off and delay ovulation. Just the stress of TTC can delay ovulation, and just being sexually active can as well. One thing you should know is, stress delays ovulation, not your period. If you ovulate late, your period will be late. The day your period is going to come is determined by the day you ovulate. Women can ovulate anywhere from 10-17 days after the first day of their last period. It is said that you can also calculate ovulation if you know the day your next period is due. You can count back 10-16 days from the day of your expected period, and expect ovulation to occur then. I say 10-16 days because I don’t know how long your luteal phase is, and i’m not sure you do either :) Your luteal phase is the days between the day after ovulation and you next period. Your luteal phase is the same length every month, no matter how early or late ovulation occurs.

To find out when you ovulate, you can use over the counter ovulation predictor kits, or a fertility monitor. Also you can chart your basal body temp. Check on fertilityfriend.com on how to do so. And, when your cervical mucus starts to resemble raw egg whites, you are most likely in your fertile window approaching ovulation. It is said that egg white cervical mucus dries up the day before or the day of ovulation, so when you observe it start having sex.

Sperm is not leaking out of you after sex, it’s the semen. Sperm lives in semen, and semen helps transport the sperm to your fallopian tubes. Trust me hun, the sperm are reaching their destination :) Try not to get up right away after sex. Just lay there for a bit, and prop your hips up. Good luck to you, and lots of baby dust!

EDIT: With an Equate brand test, a negative would look like
l -
a positive would be l +
If there is no plus sign, then it would be a negative result. But it could be possible that you tested to early and there’s not enough hCG in your urine for the test to detect if you are pregnant.

2 Lh Surges And Pregnant

Sharon asks…

trying to conceive for 2 months only now?

we have a 4 year old and i remember from last time we were ttc i waited till my LH surge and then we had sex the following 2 days and were pregnant. :-)
this time around i had my LH surge on 9/13 about midnight.
we had sex at 10:45pl 9/13
sex 1:00am 9/14
sex 1:00am 9/15
anyone offer some thougths if this may have done the trick while i wait the long two weeks.
or if there is somethig else i should be trying.
i am a 28 day cycle and while i have been charting have my surge on day 17.
i have been off the pill for 8 months in preperation.
thank you in advance…

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It’s hard to say exactly when you ovulate going only by LH test strips. Temperatures are a way more accurate way to confirm if and when you actually ovulate. But if you don’t experience an LH surge until around day 17, then it’s fair to guess that you don’t actually ovulate until day 18 or 19 since ovulation usually follows the surge by up to couple of days later. With your 28-day cycle, that means that your luteal phase (the space of time that your body allows for implantation to happen before you experience a period) is is about 10 or 11 days long. That’s a little shorter than what is usually considered optimal for conceiving. Most embryos implant between 8-10 days after ovulation, but if you only have a 10-day LP, your uterine lining will already be getting weaker and your hormone levels dropping around the end of that window. Taking a B-complex vitamin or a B-6 supplement (even a small amount can help tons, but make sure you don’t exceed 200mg per day) can extend your luteal phase by up to a few precious days. It’s a low-risk, non-invasive way to increase your chances of conceiving from the luteal-phase side of things.

Otherwise, having sex immediately following your LH surge is a generally very good tactic, of course. And otherwise, there’s not much you can do other than to just wait it out another month.

Carol asks…

2 + day LH surge ( still going! ) yesterday right ovary pain, today left!?

Does this mean anything?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Maybe. Some women occasionally release two eggs within 24 hours apart, (that’s how you get fraternal twins). Hard to tell though, unless you actually do get pregnant with twins. Are you baby dancing like crazy???? :)

Good luck.

Sandy asks…

Getting pregnant troubles?

Well, I know getting pregnant takes more time than people thing, and I know that it can be more difficult than it’s made to be believed. But my fiance and I (getting married next month) are trying and have been for around 2-3 months. I think im just getting worried over nothing maybe, but I don’t know. So a few questions, you really only have a chance of getting pregnant around 3 days out of your cycle, is that right? And how often should we be having sex, Ive heard every other day, just so the sperm count can be right and there isn’t as much stress. Also the part that makes me worried is that for maybe the past year or so I’ve have a recurring pain on the left side of my stomach, right below my bellybutton (so like where an ovary would be) but lately the pain hasn’t been there at all, but what I’m worried about is that what if something is wrong with my ovaries, but if there was something wrong wouldn’t it would constantly painful? I’m not sure, I’m sorry I could of jumped around, but if anyone can give me some advice or tips it would be greatly appreciated. thanks! =]
I know there’s two ovaries =] Im just worried something is wrong with the left

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The number of fertile days can vary from person to person. I use the clear blue digital OPK as I can be irregular. It lets you know your day’s of high fertility and your two peak days. The first peak indicates your LH surge and in the majority of cases you ovulate 24-36 hrs after this (however some may ovulate 12 hrs sooner). This is why the monitor shows two peak days as it would mean that ovulation will most likely occur on the second day of peak fertility. The highest chances of conception are as a result of intercourse on these two days.
Check out the clear blue website for more information.
With regards to frequency of sex – opinion seems to vary from the research I have done in the area but most agree that every other day is sufficient – this however can depend on the partners sperm count – for a normal sperm count every other day is fine.
Timing really is the key so it may be useful to use one of the online fertility calenders as they help you chart ovulation, fertile days, symptoms, when AF is due etc and they also give lots of information and tips. I figure there is nothing to lose as it will either help you concieve or at the very least give you all the data you may need ( regarding your cycles) to give to your obgyn should you have issues.
I use www.fertilityfriend.com
The important thing to remember is that the chances of conception on any given cycle when both partners are healthy and everything is timed perfectly is only around ~ 25%
So essentially don’t panic – keep positive
With regards to the pain – if it is causing you to worry or stress you should get it checked out
Best of luck with the wedding and future bump!

Jenny asks…

If I conceived 2 days ago-yesterday, would my OVULATION test be positive? (because LH hormone&PG are similar)?

Did Clearblue ovulation test – showed 2 lines. One very faint, another dark. I just want to know if you do Ovulation test and are already pregnant (but you don’t know it) – before the period delay, would Ovulation test show positive too?


Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Generally, even after an LH surge, you could still have LH in your system, and still be getting faint lines on an ovulation test. Right now, it’s waaaay too early to be getting a positive line on any test from hCG. HCG only starts to rise after implantation, and that happens 6-12 days after ovulation. The real trick will be if the line keeps getting darker as time goes by. That means that your hCG is starting to rise, as it should in early pregnancy. However, I think a pregnancy test will give you much better results if used around 12dpo-15dpo. There is generally little ambiguity in pregnancy test results, vs OPKs.

Good luck!

Helen asks…

trying to get pregnant…ovulation test….confused…help me?

ok we are trying to have a 2nd child. i have irregular periods so doctor put me on clomiphene to make me ovulate. ok so i took them and started doing the ovulation test when he told me to, which was on friday.
i got a positive the 1st day. which meant i should have ovulated within 24-36 hours after that. so i was excited. but i kept taking the test just to see and i have gotten a positive everyday! so now i am confused and have no idea what is going on with my body.
can anyone help me please?!?!?!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Some ovulation test work like that. When I used the Answer ovulation test it told me I had an LH surge for over a week. Needless to say I didn’t get pregnant that month. I recommend using the Clear Blue Easy ovulation test. Every time I use them I became pregnant that month and they are much easier to read then the other tests. I never had an issue with them giving me an LH surge everyday. Good Luck!!

Lh Surge After Ovulation Possible

Donna asks…

Is it possible to get a BFP from ONE time, 3 days before ovulation?

I WAS being monitored by a fertility specialist, but on Monday they cancelled the cycle because there were too many follicles. However me and DH had ALREADY done the deed on Sunday at 2pm (before the cycle was cancelled) which I think was about 2-3 days before O took place.

Is it possible to get pregnant from that time alone?

More details:
Monday at 9am my blood test showed an LH surge and estrogen levels that indicated to my nurse that I would ovulate on Tuesday sometime.

Tuesday at 9am I did an OPK (which I don’t really understand very well) The test line was dark, but not QUITE as dark as the control line. I also had EWCM but by 3pm it was almost completely gone.

Wednesday at 9am I did an OPK and the test line was lighter than Tuesday’s test.
Thursday at 9am my OPK was negative.

I think with all this information put together, it seems that I O’d Tuesday or at the latest Wednesday.
In which case, we DTD 2-3 days BEFORE ovulation.


Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yes sperm can live for upto 7 days im in the same boat 3 days before so spreading baby dust to u and good luck xxx

Jenny asks…

Can you get an LH surge right before your period?

The hubby and I just recently decided to try for kiddos. I have always had very irregular periods, so the doctor told me to use Clear Blue OPK. Well, I hadn’t had a period in about 40 days, two HPTs came back negative, so I decided to take an OPK. I took the first one on Sunday and it was negative. I skipped Monday because my husband was out of town and I thought “What’s the point?” I took one Tuesday evening and got the smiley face so the hubbs and I got busy! I got another smiley this morning (Wednesday), but I had some light spotting this morning too.

My question is, am I about to ovulate, or have my period? I am usually so miserable right before a period that I can hardly stand it, but I haven’t had any PMS symptoms other than being a little moody. Nothing physical like usual. Is it possible that my smiley faces were telling me that I was about to start my period instead of ovulate?

I haven’t started charting as of yet. We only decided to start trying last month and I didn’t want to jump into that too quickly, but I have always been super irregular, so maybe I will consider it if I don’t get pregnant within a couple of months!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It sounds like your ovulation was delayed for whatever reason. You are probably in your most fertile window now, so you should expect your period/take a pregnancy test in 14-18 days. Good luck!

Lizzie asks…

can ovulation test strips detect pregnancy as well?

My best friend is ttc. She ran out of pregnancy test strips, Her period is 4 days late, so she decided to try an ovulation strip test (just incase) and it came up positive! All 4 tests she used were positive infact! is it possible she is getting a positive pregnancy result from hc ovulation tests?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

They certainly can. LH (the hormone that surges during ovulation) is very similar to HCG (the pregnancy hormone). OPK’s are only looking for LH, but because of the chemical similarities, and the fact that it’s a less sensitive test, HCG can cause a positive on OPK’s. The same is NOT true the other way around, though – pregnancy tests would not mistake LH for HCG. :)

I would caution her against using an OPK as the sole means of diagnosing a pregnancy – since it’s possible it’s just an abundance of LH (which is always present in a woman’s body, to one degree or another) but I’d say it’s quite likely she is pregnant. She should confirm it with an actual pregnancy test and/or with her doctor, but it’s a good sign!

Susan asks…

Women with longer cycles less likely to ovulate?

If your cycle is about 30-34 days long, is it less likely that you will ovulate every month? I read that somewhere and I was hoping that it wasn’t true. Also is getting a period sure-fire proof that you ovulated that month? thank you all!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Having a longer cycle does not mean you don’t ovulate. 30-34 days is not considered long…. 40+ days is considered long. It’s possible that you ovulate with every cycle. And, no, a period does not mean that you ovulated. People get this one wrong every time. You can have a period and not ovulate and you can ovulate and not have a period… That two don’t always go hand in hand.

The only way to know for sure that you ovulated is to chart your basal body temperature (BBT). When you ovulate, you see a shift in your body temperature, which confirms ovulation took place and when. No other method of tracking your cycles is a confirmation of ovulation, including using ovulation predictor kits (which detect your LH surge not ovulation).

I really recommend that you read the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility and start charting your BBTs. You’ll learn a lot about how your body works. FertilityFriend.com is a great website used for charting that has lots of information. The site is free and the charts are easy to understand.


Good luck.

Nancy asks…

how can I become more fertile?

I am still ttc and I bought an ovulation kit, but i thought you were only supposed to ovulate a few days each month. My question is I ovulate a lot according to the test, therefore how do I know if the test is right and how can I up my chances to get pregnant faster? Is there a way to make yourself more fertile before intercourse?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You only ovulate once per month.

Generally Ovulation Predictor kits test for your LH surge – that is a peak in your Lutenizing Hormone, which is what triggers ovulation. If the test is saying that you are ovulating every day then either (1) your test is malfunctioning because this is not possible or (2) you naturally have high levels of LH.

To find out of the test is working or not you should try one of two things. You can contact the manufacturer and have them send you a new kit or (and this may sound odd) have your husband try it. If it is reading that he is ovulating then the test is not working properly.

If the test is not malfunctioning then you need to see your doctor. High levels of LH can indicate PCOS (Poly Cyctic Ovary Syndrome). PCOS keeps women from ovulating, or ovulating regularly. If your LH is naturally high then it interferes with you FSH (Folicle Stimulating Hormone) which means you are not maturing any eggs to be realeased for fertilization (ovulation). If this is the case then you will probably need to see a speacilist to help you get pregnant.

Ovulation Symptoms Bloating

Mary asks…

How soon after conception would you experience pregnancy symptoms?

how soon after conception would you experience pregnancy symptoms?
Like bloating and headaches and triedness, could u experience these only a few days after conception?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

This is my 6th pregnancy with only 1 live birth and this pregnancy i had a feeling 6 days after ovulation and day 8 got a BFP and being tired nuasueus headaches achy and lower back pain all had given me clues took a test as was about to go on a diet pill and needed to know first

Jenny asks…

how can u tell the difference between pregnancy symptoms and period?

i get all the pregnancy symptoms at every period . it is agonizing and make me think im preggers. what can i do

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

For every woman it’s different, but it’s actually kind of hard to tell the difference (or at least I found) in early pregnancy. The thing that stood out to me the most to make me realize I was preggy was the weird/changing tastes of food and the consistent nausea. But most of my other symptoms – cramps, bloating, fatigue, breast tenderness, acne, mood swings – all seem like period symptoms more than pregnancy.

But keeping track of your menstrual cycle and ovulation date will give you a better idea of if you should be concerned about pregnancy or not. I had sex the day before my ovulation date (we were sort of trying), so I kind of realized I was pregnant sooner than I would have had I not been keeping track.

Helen asks…

How soon after conception do you start to get pregnancy symptoms?

i would like to know what kind of pregnacy symptoms do you get starting FROM CONCEPTION to before your period is due, if any? i have looked at other answers but they are talking about 2 weeks after the period is due, but i already know that if you miss your period that is the biggest sign. Please answer if you know of any, because i am on clomid and this my third month and last try for getting pregnant with clomid and so far it seems like it has not worked. i am so anxious to know before my period is due as to what the symptoms are. Thanks for your kind answers.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The reason there arent any signs is because you have to wait for baby to implant for it to start affecting us if its going to.

-some get spotting 7-10 days after ovulation
-others wait for there period because testing to early could give them a false negative
-normally 2 weeks after ovulation is about the time you would get your period, about the time you HCG levels are high enough to show up on a HPT.

Some ppl think symptoms in there head, but in all reality, there false.. Some do become pregnant and others dont..

First signs are sore breasts, cramping, bloated.. All happen about 10+days after ovulation

everyone is different and f.drugs make your body do weird things..

Good luck

Maria asks…

What does this mean could it be implantation bleeding?

Period due tomorrow. Been having light pink hardly noticeable blood for 3 days now. Only symptom is bloating. Could this be implantation bleeding?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

What does implantation bleeding look like?
Implantation bleeding is vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding.

When does implantation bleeding usually occur?
It can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation.

Should I worry about implantation bleeding occurring?
Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about.

If this is implantation bleeding, when can I test to see if I am pregnant?
Home pregnancy tests are based on a very simple principle. They work by through the detection of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in a woman’s urine. This hormone is a hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after a fertilized egg has been implanted in the uterine lining.

If a woman is pregnant, the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in her system should be around 25 mIU at 10 dpo (days past ovulation), 50 mIU at 12 dpo, 100 mIU at around two weeks dpo. Because of their high sensitivity factor ( 20 mIU/ml hCG ) in detecting human hCG, both the AimStrip pregnancy tests can confirm pregnancy as early as 6-8 days past ovulation though most women find that the test reports a positive at 9 or 10 days past ovulation.

Lisa asks…

What are the chances of pregnancy if I had sex twice during my week of ovulation?

I am 2 dpo. This is our first month ttc and the tww is going to kill me. Has anyone become pregnant within the first month? Did you have any symptoms after ovulation and before your period?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Very good !~!!

I was having sore boobs, reflux, bloating and lots of peeing 5dpo thats a week before AF was due!
Best of luck~

- Know your most fertile days. You can work this out with free ovulation calculators online. Try this one: http://www.ovulation-calculator.org/
- Missionary position. Although there aren’t any definitive studies to support this, lots of couples do find this position works best.
- Quit smoking, drinking and drugs. These all can greatly diminish your fertility and chances of getting pregnant.
- Become a healthy weight. Women that are overweight or underweight will both experience difficulties when trying to get pregnant, and more importantly, when you do become pregnant, the baby will be more healthy for it.
- Make the best of your man. Well you don’t want all his best swimmers flushing down the toilet, do you? No masturbation mister! Also, make sure to save his sperm for when you’re most fertile, otherwise his sperm count will be drastically reduced. Make absolutely sure that he’s preserving his sperm for the times when your fertility is at its peak. And when you do have sex, be sexy! The more aroused he is, the more sperm he’ll ejaculate, which will obviously increase your chances of conception.

All these tips should definitely go a long way towards helping you and your partner to conceive.

Also, have you decided what you’d like the sex to be? Little known fact: male sperm are weaker but swim faster, whereas female sperm are stronger but swim slower. How can we use this? Well, if you get him to ejaculate deep inside of you then you’re more likely to have a boy, whereas if the tip of his penis head is barely in when he ejaculates then you’re more likely to have a girl. This has been proven scientifically.

Hopefully I’ve helped. Good luck with getting pregnant – and raising it, because trust me, that’s the hardest part! ^_^

Maria asks…

how to conceive a baby girl naturally?

I have 3 sons and my heart desires a daughter. I am very grateful for the children I have and would gladly add another bouncing baby boy to the family but I really want to give it my best shot to have a girl. From the research I’ve done it says to have sex 3 or 4 days prior to ovulation for the best chance of conceiving a girl. When you do a ovulation calculator online it shows you a 5 day fertility period that you can conceive… so my main question is do I have sex 3 or 4 days before my first fertile day? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I’ve read that the sex position can also help. Laying on your side, allowing your partner to penetrate you from behind can help for a girl and deeper penetration positions help for a boy.

How fast can you get pregnant after unprotected sex?

me and my husband decided to do unprotected sex lastnight for the first time,. he always use condoms and i’ve never use birth control going on 6 years of marriage next month, so we decided that lastnight we maybe emotionally ready for it,even tho we were nervous lol. How fast can i tell if im pregnant ? or is it possible to get pregnant if you’re not on your fertile/ovulation days? i just finished on my period although only last for 3 days this month. Im excited if i am :) Hoping for a boy if ever :)
hey Mr Ramon C,. i do not care what you are trying to tell me as i am here to find quick answers,. and yes i googled and i made a research but none of them really answers my questions, most of them use birth controls and stuff, i don’t, and this is my first time trying to get pregnant. If you don’t like my question, PLEASE LEAVE and don’t comment. Thats all.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Well implantation would be taking place for about a week or so after you conceive so you would have to wait until a period is at least 3 days late, missed or 21 days after unprotected sex for an accurate reading. You can get support on the trying to conceive or long term trying to conceive forums of http://www.babyandbump.momtastic.com you can also find when your ovulating and therefore more likely to conceive on this link http://www.babycenter.com/ovulation-calculator
Good Luck x

How to concieve a girl?

My husband and I are trying to concieve our 2nd child, our 1st was a boy so…we really,really,really pray for a beautiful baby girl this pregancy. Is there any way or amy tips that anyone could give me on how to concieve a girl?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Hey! Im the exact same as you at the moment, our first was a boy and now we a desperate for a baby girl. Ive been looking around on the net lately and there are so many sites that say different things. A couple of sites were saying to mix up vinegar and water and “douche” yourself, so put it up your vagina, right before you have sex. Apparently it makes your vagina more acidic which is good for the girl sperm. The boy sperm like a more alkaline enviroment.
Also, i have been looking at the chinese gender chart. It worked for a lot of people i know and also for my last baby. The one thing that some sites dont tell you though is that it depends on your LUNAR age and LUNAR month, which is the chinese age and month. This site that ill give you calculates it all for you. And one more thing. Apparently the Shettles method has a high success rate. I have another site that will give you a free ovulation calculator which recommends the days to have sex for a girl. All you have to do is put in your details, its all free. We are trying next month.. The chinese calendar works out to be a girl that month, and also going to use the ovulation calendar method for a girl. Goodluck, i wish you all the best.
