    is it true that most, if not all, women ovulate 12-16 days prior to menstruation?

    is it probable for a woman with a 38-45 day cycle to ovulate on the 6th day of her cycle? eventhough she USUALLY ovulates on/around the 25th day of her cycle?

    I don't really know the exact incidence rate of women ovulating 12-16 days prior to menstruation...to be safe about it, I'd say that a lot of women ovulate around the time, assuming that the menstrual periods are very regular and occur within the 28-33 day range. I posted in this thread the directions on how to track one's ovulation period. Just go through this thread if you want to know about it.

    Regarding ovulating on the 6th day, yes, it's very possible.

    this question might come off as idiotic but i just wanna know if the possibility would be high or low? considering the fact that the woman normally ovulates on/around th 25th day of her cycle.

    oh and another question, if she did ovulate on th 6th day of her cycle would that mean she'd get her period approximately 12-16 days after? would that mean that it's still possible to get your period twice in one month (a shorter cycle) eventhough u have a regular 38-45 day cycle?

    is it possible to ovulate on, let's say, the 6th day of your cycle and get your period on the 40th day (assuming you have a 39 day cycle)?

    There's only a slim chance, but it's still there.

    She'd usually get her period around 12-16 days before her next expected menstrual period, but in the first place, her situation is not the usual already---her ovulation on the 6th day may have been because she has released 2 mature eggs the previous month (which, while not the usual scenario, still happens), and the cycle gets out of whack. Once the period comes after day 12-16, assuming that everything's normal, the female would most probably go back to her regular 38-45 day cycle. The cycle is pretty complex, and while I wish it's cut-and-dried explanation, it's not. The levels of FSH, LH, stress, and health, among others, affect the menstrual flow. It's not really possible to give you a certain answer.

    Again, it depends on several factors affecting your period, but this doesn't sound very plausible.

    1. what if the girl smokes 1-2 cigarettes a day knowing that she has a week or two old fetus? is it already bad for the health of the baby? will it cause deformity as the fetus grows big?

    2. about when (weeks/months) should the girl start stop smoking for her to maintain a healthy baby on her womB/?

    The fetus will lack oxygen and will be small.

    At the start of pregnancy.

    "Health lang"? Maybe it's just me, but I would think that the child's health problems would be a lot more important than whether he is going to come out cute or not.

    Anway, as I've said, the child will be small, and that precludes everything that comes with being a too-small neonate, like being sickly. Small-for-gestational-age is the most common and proven effect of smoking mothers. Pregnant smokers also experience more stillbirths, spontaneous abortions, premature births, and giving birth to children with deficiencies in physical growth, learning disabilities and behavioral problems. They may also occassionally produce children with malformations of the central nervous system, digestive system and the heart, and sometimes, a cleft lip/palate.

    Small for gestational age= below average size and weight

    Stillbirth= dead at birth.

    will having a flu affect the baby if still in first trimester? kasi i have to drink antibiotics and i don't know if i'm pregnant or not
  • IraIra Member PEx Rookie ⭐
    It depends on the organism that's causing the flu. Usually, minor infections like the flu will not cause any problems at all (unless it's not really the flu). If you were given amoxycillin, it's safe for pregnant women. If it's not amoxycillin, buy yourself a home pregnancy test kit first before starting with your medication.

    hi doc! i took the test na. and it said negative. but i'm just going to ask if the chemicals of the medicine can some how alter my urine and make the test say negative even if i am positive? or does the test read accurately even if i'm taking anti-biotics?

    kasi i started taking my medication before i took the test. my temperature went up so they gave me my medication. i bought the test when i started feeling better its about 2 days after i started to take my antibiotics. is it possible?
  • IraIra Member PEx Rookie ⭐
    Antibiotics, oral contraceptives, painkillers and other common drugs will not affect the results of pregnancy tests. Only medications containing the hormone hCG can.
  • thin_1thin_1 Member PExer
    thanks doc! i was hoping you would say that!:)

    question: what's a "blood implantation"?
  • IraIra Member PEx Rookie ⭐
    Blood implantation...? :confused: I have never heard of that.
