  • Ok I had sex july 31st and by august 4th I started having bad diarreah, nausea, super sensitive sexually and light pink nose bleeds. For one I didn't think symptoms could start that soon. And when I was pregnant with my duaghter (9 years ago) I never had any of those symptoms I jus had the morning sickness horribly! Is it possible I'm pregnant? We have been tryin for almost a year now. We tried for a year an a half before and miscarried in 2009 so we took a break but have since then been trying. I don't wanna get my hopes up but I know my body is telling me somethin is off I just don't know what. Input please would be greatly appreciated!

    When was the first day of your last period? How long are your usual periods? This will help better determine the likelihood of pregnancy.

    If you haven't already read it, a GREAT resource is Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. Pick it up from the library or from Amazon. It's a wonderful read for any woman trying to conceive.

  • My periods used to last 7 days but the last couple months they start anywhere from 1-3 days late and have only been lasting 4-5 days. My last period was 5 days late and I had a few days between the last 2 periods of light bleeding. The first day of my last period was july 22nd.

  • If the first day of your last period was 7/22, it would be very unlikely that you'd be pregnant from intercours on 7/31. That's only 9 days from the start of your period and you would likely not have ovulated yet.

    It is much more likely that you're ovulating about now.

    If you've been trying for almost a year and you haven't figured out your cycle, start with that book. Most OB/GYNs will want to have a 3-month look at your cycle and temps to figure out what is happening with your cycle before jumping into more aggressive treatments. To fully take advantage of your best chances to conceive, it is SO helpful to understand how your body works.
