Q and A – Free Fertility Advice
These are some more of my favorite questions I receive and the answers I give regarding conception.
QUESTION: How soon after intercourse should I wait to use the restroom, or does that not play a role in getting pregnant.
ANSWER: Ideally it’s good to lay there for about 20 minutes to insure the sperm will get to the egg. However I can honestly say I conceived when I got up immediately at least 3 times now.
Question: When can I get pregnant after a miscarriage? When will I ovulate? I was told that I have to wait 3mo to get pregnant, what will happen if I get pregnant right away?
ANSWER: Well, a doctor will tell you to wait 3 months to give your body a chance to get back to normal. A lot depends on when the miscarriage occurred and whether or not you had to have a D&C. My own experience – I had a miscarriage on April 6, 1997. It was an early one – and a natural one. I conceived 2 weeks later and on May 6, 1997 found out I was pregnant again. My daughter came along just 5 days after the due date of the miscarried baby and she’s perfect in every way!
Question: What is the time frame for an egg to get fertilized?
ANSWER: 12 to 24 hours
Question: Is it possible for you to feel when implantation is taking place?
ANSWER: I think so. I really believe I felt my 4th baby implant. It was 5 days post ovulation and I had this strange cramping for about an hour. 6 days later I had a positive pregnancy test plus food cravings!
Question: how early do pregnancy symptoms show up?
Answer: The first sign of pregnancy could be implantation spotting. This may or may not occur. If it does it will occur at 5 to 12 days post ovulation. Otherwise you may experience fatigue, food cravings/aversions, frequent urination and or dizziness from about 1 week on past ovulation.
Question: what are my chances of having a baby after vasectomy
Answer: Though a vasectomy is supposed to be sterilization and permanent – there is probably a 1% chance of conceiving. My childbirth instructor of my 2nd baby had a baby about 4 years after her husband had a vasectomy. She thought she had ovarian cancer and the ultrasound showed a beating heart! So it is possible. Of course the chances go up considerably if there has been a reversal.
Question: I am a bit confused, to conceive should I have intercourse before or after my menstrual cycle?
ANSWER: To conceive, normally you need to have intercourse half way between your bleeding periods, like around day 14. Ovulation generally occurs around the very middle of the cycle.
The #1 Reason for Spotting:
Hormonal imbalance due to low progesterone.
Don't take chances with the baby you work so hard for.
