I like your thinking, Kat! My kids definitely help keep me on my toes now that I'm 47, too!
Wow, Tlkittycat...I'm impressed that you had your last baby at 40! I remember when I was pregnant with my 2nd child at 27 and someone made the comment to me that I was getting "up there" and was a good thing I was having my second child now! LOL
I had my last baby at 35. He's going to be 15 in October and I feel this is a perfect time in my life with him. Not too old and not too young. Yes, Kat..the patience and experience pays off. And boy do I need it with him!! View Thread
Hi Anon and welcome. I'm sorry to hear that you feel you have no one to talk to. That can be a scary place to be sometimes.
How regular have your cycles been and how long have you had them? During my teen years, and even into my 20's, I'd have late periods. I never had any idea when I was going to start.
Are you using any sort of birth control or protection from STD's when you do have sex? Planned Parenthood's Teen Talk website which can locate a health center near you where you can take a pregnancy test or get contraceptives.
I would really encourage you to go have that heart to heart with your mom or dad. It is a little uncomfortable, but you will get past this awkward part and you can start a new type of relationship with your parents as you move into being a young woman.
Good luck! Please let us know if you have any more questions. We are here to help!
Welcome to the Could I Be Pregnant Community! I'm not saying it's happened to you, but tubal ligation and tubal implants are not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, so there is a possibility.
According to WebMD, there is a slight risk of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation.If the surgery was not done properly, or the tubes grow back together or a new passage forms (recanalization) that allows an egg to be fertilized by sperm.
You should talk to your doctor if you think you are pregnant to avoid any unforeseen complications.
Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.
Problems with ovulation account for most cases of infertility in women. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Some signs that a woman is not ovulating normally include irregular or absent menstrual periods.
The first step in testing is to find out if you are ovulating each month. There are several ways to do this which you can read about in the above article.
Doctors can also check if a woman is ovulating by doing blood tests and an ultrasound of the ovaries. If the woman is ovulating normally, more tests are needed.
