Q and A – Free Fertility Advice

These are some more of my favorite questions I receive and the answers I give regarding conception.

Question 1: 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 ensure 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 2: When can I get pregnant after a miscarriage? When will I ovulate? I was told that I have to wait 3 months 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 3: What is the time frame for an egg to get fertilized?

Answer: 12 to 24 hours

Question 4: 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 5: 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 6: 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 for my 2nd baby had a baby about 4 years after her husband had a vasectomy. She thought she had ovarian cancer, but the ultrasound showed a beating heart! So it is possible. Of course, the chances go up considerably if there has been a reversal.

Question 7: 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 halfway between your bleeding periods, like around day 14. Ovulation generally occurs around the very middle of the cycle.
