Could i be pregnant even after negative at home tests ?
My husband and i have been trying to concieve for almost a year with no luck. My last period started Dec 25th and only lasted 3 days (normally it lasts 5) i tested about a week later and it was negative. I still havnt gotten my next period (my cycle is usually 30-34 days and im on day 38 now) no cramps, symptoms or anything suggesting that im getting my period, i just tested again and its still negative.
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
Very unlikely. Anyway, give it a last try tomorrow, using the first passed urine, upon walking up from 5 to 8 hours sleep. Still negative. Please visit your Gynaecologist.
1. Determine your day of ovulation using Ovulation Test Kits. In Ladies with REGULAR CYCLE You need to test from the 10th to 18th day of your cycle. (First day of bleeding is the First day of the cycle).
2. Unprotected sex on the day or on the eve or one day after ovulation will yield good result. So calm down and get yourself composed. Any form of STRESS will get you away from your goal.
- Plan a vacation, far away from the madding crowd, coinciding with your ovulation period. Suggest natural water fall or mountainous resort.
3. Get your hubby’s seminal fluid examined by a reputable laboratory. Your hubby needs three days of sexual absenteeism (including masturbation) for the test. Since spermatozoa are easily perishable outside the reproductive system, your hubby has to go the laboratory, masturbate and ejaculate into the sterile container and hand over then and there, for the examination.
- Plus some fine tips below, to follow:
i. Determine your ovulation day, using the Ovulation kit.
Ii. Coincide unprotected sex to the Ovulation (Eve / on the very day of ovulation / the very following day after ovulation ). Ovum released can survive only for 24 hours.
Iii. Plenty of love making / foreplay prior to the actual act, because that will well lubricate your reproductive tract and remove the Vaginal acidity. Vaginal acidity can destroy the spermatozoa.
Iv. Elevate your Pelvis, with a pillow, at least prior to ejaculation. . Missionary position with your legs on your hubby’s shoulder. This will provide a deep penetration and deposition of semen deep inside the vagina, almost at the lips of the cervix and to ensure the smooth flowing of semen into the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes.
V. Try to reach climax/female orgasm at the time of ejaculation, so that your cervix will literally suck in all the ejaculatory fluid. For completion sake, I had given the additional benefits of female orgasm below
a. If your orgasm is always late or your hubby is having premature ejaculation, begin the sex in Reverse missionary (with you on the top).
B.Reverse Missionary aids in two ways-
Firstly the women will attain orgasm earlier because of the stimulation of G spot
Secondly it also delays the premature ejaculation
Female Orgasm keeps the woman lying down for some time. This resting, passively retaining sperm and increasing her probability of conception. . British biologists, Robin Baker and Mark Bellis team counted sperm from over 300 instances of human copulation and found that a woman climaxes any time between a minute before to 45 minutes after her lover ejaculates, retains significantly more sperm (In non orgasmic, she hardly retain any sperm)..
Vi. Try to lie on your back for at least 4 to 5 hours after sex, so that even the slow-moving or the late comer spermatozoa too will find the way into the female reproductive system.
Vii. Strictly no washing, immediately after sex, especially on or around the day of ovulation.

How can you make conceiving easier ?
I want a baby!! I have tried for about a year and a half, is there a way to find out when ur ovulating or something? I live in a small town and doctors cost way too much… also is there something i can do to make conceiving easier??
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
There are a lot of ways to find out when you are ovulating. For starters, I would recommend signing up on http://www.fertilityfriend.com and then reading the link below I give you.
You can buy ovulation predictor kits with 7 tests for around $10, or you can buy them for $1 per test in some dollar stores. You start testing early in your cycle (probably better to start as soon as you stop bleeding if you are new at this).
Also… DON’T LISTEN TO THE 14 DAY CRAP!! Everyone’s body is different, even fertility-wise. I average a 29 day cycle where I ovulate 11 days before my next period. (Yes, it is predicted by counting back, before your period, not after.) You have two basic phases in your cycle. The first phase, lasting from the first day of your period to the day of ovulation, is called the Follicular phase. This is when the lining of your uterus sheds, or what we all call our period (the lining thickens in the second phase). The next egg that will be released matures, and then is finally released (ovulation). The Follicular phase is generally unpredictable with pinpoint precision, and this is also the reason for so many women having irratic, irregular cycles.
The second phase is the Luteal phase. During this phase, the lining of the uterus thickens in preparation for a fertilized egg to implant. The process takes, on average, 6 to 12 days after ovulation, but has been recorded as happening as early as 3 days after ovulation. The Luteal phase is almost always the same length in days from month to month. For instance, I have checked my ovulation every month for the last 18 months and have had an 11 day Luteal phase all but 3 months when the Luteal phase lasted 10 days.
You also have a 6 day fertile window that you can conceive. Sperm are capable of living up to 3 to 5 days in a woman’s fertile fluids. This means you can have sex 3 to 5 days before you ovulate and the sperm can live inside your body in wait for the egg to come down. You also have 12 to 24 hours after ovulation for fertilization. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will die and deteriorate into the uterine wall and shed with the lining of your uterus during your next period.
After taking Plan B i was suppose to have my period the next week with birth control and i am on the third pil?
I took Plan B last thursday and i was suppose to have my period sunday. I am on Birth Control so my period is regulated. I am on my third pill, and i am beginning to get a little worried. Can someone give me some advice?
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
Temporary disruption of the menstrual cycle is also commonly experienced. If taken before ovulation, the high doses of progestogen in levonorgestrel treatments may induce progestogen withdrawal bleeding a few days after the pills are taken. One study found that about half of women who used levonorgestrel ECPs experienced bleeding within 7 days of taking the pills.
If levonorgestrel is taken after ovulation, it may increase the length of the luteal phase, thus delaying menstruation by a few days.
These disruptions only occur in the cycle in which ECPs were taken; subsequent cycle length is not significantly affected. If a woman’s menstrual period is delayed by a week or more, it is advised that she take a pregnancy test. (Earlier testing may not give accurate results.)
For 5 to 7 days after sex, you can have a Copper T 380 A IUD (Paragard) put in. Emergency postcoital insertion of the Copper T 380 A IUD (ParaGard) is the most effective currently available postcoital contraceptive. It’s also an excellent (non.hormonal) form of long term birth control.
Insertion of a copper-T IUD as emergency contraception is more than 99% effective, making it more effective than emergency contraceptive pills (ECP or ‘morning-after pill’).
The best suggestion I can make for birth control is a Paragard – the reasons I got mine; no hormones, is idiot proof (no pills, patches or rings to remember or forget) and it’s good for up to 12 yrs. Also it’s compatible with breastfeeding, if you decide to add to your family later.
An unorthodox suggestion . . . .
Provoke a period when you are due, it can even work if you are a bit late.
You can do this by using Vitamin C. Take 12 grams of ascorbic acid – Vitamin C a day until bleeding commences. Specifically use ascorbic acid. Do not use Vitamin C with Bioflaviniods or that has Rose-hips in it. Look for the cheap generic brands, they are usually the ones that have pure ascorbic acid. Doses consisting of 1,000mg every two hours are most common.
The vitamin C -ascorbic acid- works to produce an unfavorable climate within the uterus so that the egg does not implant, or cannot maintain its grip on the uterine wall.

When is a women most likely to get pregnant?
How long after a womens peroid is the best chance of her becoming pregnant.
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
The best time to conceive is before you ovulate (release an egg), and most women ovulate about 14 days BEFORE their next period starts.
For example, I have a 32 day cycle and I ovulate on about CD18 or CD19 (CD=cycle day).
This gets tricky because we don’t know exactly when our period is going to start.
Women are less likely of getting pregnant if they only have sex on the day they ovulate, as the egg is only be capable of being fertilised for 18-48 hours after ovulation.
A lot of women don’t realise all of this, there are a LOT of misconceptions about getting pregant, and it doesn’t help because it’s all a little confusing, but luckily some clever people have come up with ovulation calculators to help, so perhaps this might be useful to you…
I hope that everything goes well for you, and that you’re blessed very soon. Wishing you lots of luck!
Is it too early for a pregnancy test?
I had unprotected sex the 18th of November, 18th of December protected, and unprotected again on the 25th and 31st. I’m not sure what days I ovulate, my periods come on the 4th of every month and I am very regular, I didn’t miss my period in December or at any other time. This month I did miss my period and it’s been a week since I’m supposed to get it, I had some very light spotting last night but nothing came of it, so I took a test today and it came out negative. Could it still be too early?
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
If your period very predictable, and are sure that you were to come on on the 4th then you should have been ovulating on the 21st of December.
Ovulation occurs for most women 14 days BEFORE menstruation is to occur. There are signs of ovulation and they vary from woman to woman, but typically you would expect to see a clear, slimy vaginal fluid, the consistency of egg whites. Increased sexual drive, tender breast or tender pelvis on the left or right side.
If and once conception has occurred, it takes between 3 and 11 days for the fertilized egg to reach and implant itself safely into the uterine lining. It is only upon implantation that the body recognizes that there is a pregnancy to conserve and protect. The placenta of the newly forming embryo releases a special hormone to do this, it is called Hcg.
Hcg is the only hormone that pregnancy test are designed to detect, thus if you take a pregnancy test, and read it within the 5-10 limit as instructed on the package and see a POSITIVE, that means conception and implantation has occurred.
Now is a good time to start testing., wait 48 hours between test, because in healthy pregnancies, the Hcg hormone doubles every 2 days. Depending on the test you are using the sensitivity may be set higher than 10. Most pregnancy test are as sensitive as 10 units of Hcg in the urine, others are a bit higher, meaning more Hcg has to be in the urine before you see a positive result.
Usually, home test are more sensitive than what the doctor’s office uses. (They buy cheaper ones in bulk, usually set to a sensitivity level of 50 units of detectable Hcg)
//in rare cases it could take up to 3 weeks after conception to reach 50.
