Pregnancy

Hi I got my first depo shot late May 2019. My next shot was due August 2019. I didn't get the shot as i did not like the side effects of the shot (i bled for 5 weeks). After not receiving the shot i got a 7 day period. I have not seen a period for this month and i took a pregnancy test which was negative. Is this normal or is it possible for me to be pregnant?

When starting and stopping depo shots it is not unusual to have irregular bleeding and changes in time of period.

Also, if you have had sexual intercourse without birth control you are at risk for unplanned pregnancy.  

Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider to discuss further and talk about other effective types of birth control.  

If i have unprotected sex and idk if he precummed in me but i do know he didnt cum in me and then i took a plan b (just in case he precum in me)48hours or maybe a couple hours less than that whats my risk of pregnancy

Research shows that if Plan B is taken 25-48 hours after sex, the effectiveness at preventing pregnancy is about  85 percent.  That means that if 100 people took the pill between 25 and 48 hours then approx 85 will not get pregnant and approx 15 will.  

Okay, I live in Alabama. Before I got pregnant, I smoked weed. Ever since, I have been anti and actually refuse to ever again. The doctor said that he would test me again at my third trimester. I will definitely pass because it's been almost 7 months. My question is, since I'm done smoking and if I pass it, will any CPS be involved? Like, my mom plans to be in the room & I don't want a case worker to show up but I will pass everything. I just don't know if they would because of the first failed at 8 weeks.

Assuming you pass everything you should not have to worry about CPS involvement.  Different states and different hospitals may have different rules.  You may want to have that conversation with your dr. so they understand your concern

Hi I'm 20 and at the begining of this year I decided to get the depo shot but didn't go for the second one because I wanted to try and get pregnant. The first month of stopping I was bleeding for a month (which I know is common). After that I have not had a period yet but have had pregnancy symptoms. I looked into the the aftereffects of stopping it which are symptoms common to pregnancy. I've had continuous weight gain that started very quickly I am now 40-50lbs heavier than 2-3 months ago. Within a week of buying Jean's that did fit me, the following week they were way too tight. Now none of my Jean's with button and my shirts are too tight. I have had tender breast which have grown 2-3 cup sizes. Also my veins in my breast are sometimes very noticeable along with what looks like white pimples on my boobs. Nausea, which is common for me, but this is close to vomiting. I feel queasy around certain smells and have also had cravings, which normally doesn't happen unless I'm on my period. My feet have either gotten fat or they are swollen; not too noticable, but you can tell my socks are tight. My bowel system is out of whack. I've had cramping and my back pain is worse than usual. I've been more drowsy and waking up with headaches. I'm just confused. I've taken 5 at home test (3 last month along with blood work) which have all came back negative. All of these symptoms have happened within maybe 2 months and I've also gained 40-50 pounds since then and continue to gain, what seems like, 2 pounds a week or every other week. . I'm concerned because I've recently gotten on new meds (which only one causes weight gain) and if I'm pregnant I do not want to cause any type of harm to the baby. My medicines I take are venlafaxine, busprione, quetiapine, and cyproheptadine. I just don't know what to do at this point.

Please schedule an appointment with your PCP or your psychiatrist to review your symptoms.  Some of the medications you are on can cause weight gain.  Also additional blood tests such as thyroid may need to be done. 

If you do not have a PCP please schedule an appointement at Corner Health. 

Ok so my partner used pull out method but i think some slipped into the vagina while he went to get tissue wipe his cum off me he wiped inside me but is there a chance i could end up getting pregnant from that even tho he wiped it out or while waiting for him to wipe.

In order for pregnancy to occur sperm need to come in contact with an egg.  Yes it is possible for sperm that are around the outside of the vagina   or just inside to get to an egg.  If it has been 5 days or less you can get the plan B to reduce the chances or an unplanned pregnancy.

Hi i am experiencing early signs of pregnancy. my pulse in the aorta is pulsing normally but there is a steady 2 thrum pulse in the bottom right of my stomach. I know its not my aorta because it happens even when i sit up and stand up. I also have a weird lump in my belly button. I pee more frequently and i have back pains. Can some women get a early pregnancy??? Should I get a early pregnancy test??? I only had sex 24 hours ago but i feel pukey and all those other symptoms.

It is very unlikely the symptoms you describe are from a potential pregnancy that occurred 24 hours earlier.  Have you had any other episodes of unprotected sex before?

If these symptoms continue or your period is late please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider. Also if it is 5 days or less you may want to consider PlanB .

My period is 2 days late. I'm having a few cramps, white discharge and diarrhea. I had dry sex last month. Could i be pregnant? HELP!!!

If you have had sexual intercourse without using birth control or condoms there is always a chance you could be pregnant.

There are also other reason for the symptoms you are having.  If your period is 1-2 weeks late you should check a pregnancy test   

Please schedule to come to Corner health or see your health care provider for further evaluation and testing as needed.  

I have a few questions....Its been about 12 weeks since my last "sexual " encounter, but he never penetrated, he just finished on my back, but I was worried that maybe his cum dripped down my back and somehow managed to go into my vagina... is that possible??? I've had 2 regular periods since, but now I believe I might be one weeks late, I forgot when I finished my last period. If I don't get my period by September, should I be concerned that I might be pregnant??? What are some signs or symptoms I should be looking out for??? And should I take a pregnancy test??? Since that week that me and my friend were together, I haven't been able to get that thought out of my head that I may be pregnant..I've tried talking to the guy about it but he tells me not to worry, that I'm not pregnant but I don't know I can't relax.... Please help calm my nerves or help me in what I should do next?? Thank you for your time!

In order for pregnancy to occur a sperm has to enter the vagina and penetrate an egg in the fallopian tube. From the scenario you describe this sounds unlikely.

Periods can become irregular for a number of reasons including stress, (worrying about pregnancy) changes in the environment, medications. 

If you have had 2 regular periods and no sexual activity then there is little chance you are pregnant. 

Most likely you will get a period soon.  If it would help you to stop worrying you can do a pregnancy test.  You can buy one at the drugstore or schedule an appointment at Corner health or with your primary care provider. 

Am I pregnant? Here’s a timeline of what I have been experiencing, I keep track of all this in my period tracking app. I don't take birth control, and I do not have symptoms of STDs. No burning, itching, or smells. We depend on the pull out method, I scheduled an appointment at the end of this week to wait it out..I just hope someone else can relate??? AUGUST 3rd- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 4th- I took a plan B AUGUST 6th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 6th- that night after sex my period came on AUGUST 6th-11th- PERIOD AUGUST 12th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 15th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 17th- I woke up with pink blood spot, it then got darker during the day, it turned brown, now it is a red spot—literally. I panicked because I had period 5 days ago! I’ve been on google for hours... We were probably intimate between the 12th and 15th...I'm just anxious, it will be my first pregnancy. I am 20 years old so I am having mixed emotions....any clue on what I should do?

In order for a pregnancy to occur a sperm needs to come in contact with an egg.  It is difficult to know when you ovulate (release an egg) unless you are tracking it.  Most women ovulate sometime between days 11 and 17.  (Day 1 is the first day of your period).

When you take Plan B it can adjust your hormone schedule and make your periods irregular. 

So it is difficult to know why you have had irregular spotting.

Come in for your scheduled appointment. 

Also you may want to discuss reliable methods of birth control including the LARC's (Long-Acting Reversable Contraceptives) to prevent this anxiety in the future. 

Hi, I have been on the birth control pill, Tri-lo sprintec, for six or seven months now without any problems. But on last months pill pack I took 3 of the placebo pills and I tried to delay my period so I started a new pack instead of finishing the placebo pills. I figured it would not work since I already started the placebo pills and my period was due in a week but I was going on vacation and wanted to try to delay it anyways. But it did not work and my period was on time, it started on August 2nd and it ended on August 7th, I noticed it was lighter than usual and on top of my period I also had a brown discharge. When my period ended the brown discharge continued, it lasted for 4 days and before it even ended I began having very light bleeding mixed with a lot of thick clear discharge that lasted for 2-3 days. My actual period ended 7 days ago but for the past 3-4 days I have been having some breast tenderness, lower back pain that switches from my left to right side, lower abdominal pain that is switching from my left to right side, nausea, and a very light cramping and bloated feeling very low in my abdomen that I have never felt before. The birth control I am on stops me from ovulating but I missed quite a few days the past couple months, when I miss day I just take the pill the next day with my other pill. Sorry this is a lot of information but what I’m asking is, is it possible I could be pregnant? Even though I’m on the pill and my period ended only seven days ago? I’m pretty sure that’s impossible but all these symptoms have me a little worried.

Yes, you are correct it is unlikely that you are pregnant and most likely the way you are taking the pills is causing irregular cycles. The only way to be sure you are not pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. 

Also it sounds like it is difficult for you to take the pills regularly which is true for many women.  You may want to consider a better method of birthcontrol that you don't have to remember to take every day and may also  stop your periods.  

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center if your symptoms continue and to look at other forms of birth control.
