hi guys, just a quick question? I'm experiencing light lower back pains that comes and goes, and some light cramping, not really sure if it pregnancy symptoms, but myself and hubby are trying for a baby for almost 2 years. I am anemic which makes it really hard for me to conceive. so im really confused as to what these light pains are. I finished my period on the 11/09/2017. how soon can I take a test? Thanks

So confused... I had a Tubal ligation done 11 years ago , I HV never missed a period but today marks 25 days late on my cycle. I took a hpt it was negative.i went to see my doctor he took another pt negative as well. They did some blood work to check for anemia but I highly doubt it's that because I pretty much a healthy woman. And if it does come back negative the next step is an ultrasound, is there a slight chance I could be pregnant and it's not showing up just yet on the test? I ask because I've heard many stories where women won't know if they are pregnant until they were two months

Hi all, i need ur suggestions. Usually my cycle is 28 days.. rarely 29 days. My period is on June 26, July 25, August 22... it lasts 4 days..

Tell me the do's and dont's to get pregnant? Is it possible to get pregnant if i had a sex on those mentioned days? Sometimes i felt mild cramping after a day of sex. Suggestions are welcome.

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex today, and he came on my stomach , then we kept doing things and he had fun on his fingers and fingered me. Yesterday was my last day of my period. If there a chance I could get pregnant ?

So i dont think im pregnant, i Mean i know im not but im just curious but anyways i had unprotected sex on july the 22 2017 and had a slip but took plan b on the 24 and then had sore breast the next week and i thought i got my period on the 31 but it was just brown discharge(im not on birth control) but the next day on aug 1st i got my actual period. It only lasted 2 days, it ended on the 4th, it was not heavy at all, but my cramps kinda were. Today is the 6th and my breast still feel sore and swollen. Usually they're only swollen a week before my period. My body is just going crazy, could it just be the plan b messing with my body? I just wanted to know if this has happened to any one before?
