Resolved Question:

I took the morning after pill on the 1st October, and have had 2 bleeds since. I had sex on arond 10th NOvember so mid cycle, and am now pregnant. This was with 2 different people. Can I get advice that the time in October would have been taken care of by the MAP, especially since I have had a bleed a week after, then again at the end of the month?

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

thanksd

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

If I have had 2 bleeds since taking MAP that is an indicator it has worked?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So your main concern is the irregular periods?

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

no the first time was with someone not my husband

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

:(

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

I knwo how that makes me sound

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

so I had sex (even though he didn't ejaculate) 2 days after my seoptember period 30th sept

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

I took MAP pill 1st oct

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

had a period 1 week after

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

then again a few days after that

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

I had sex with mu husband 10th nov

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

so mid cycle

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

I am now pregnant

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

that would be form my husband wouldn;t it

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

not the time in sept

Dr. Shahzad MD :

yes most likely from your husband

Dr. Shahzad MD :

no not the time in september no

Dr. Shahzad MD :

what was your first day of your last menstrual period

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean your regular period

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

if I have bled twice since september that would indicate that the pill worked

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

?

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

it was also 2 days after a period

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

which I think I ma least fertile then

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

too?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

That would indicate the pill worked

Dr. Shahzad MD :

most likely

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

ok

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

oh

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

he did not ejaculate either

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

so the chances are very slim anyway

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

very slim indeed

Dr. Shahzad MD :

no ejaculation means almost zero chances

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

then also straight after period

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

also took Lavonelle

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

8 hours after

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

so I guess am pregnant now from the time mid cycle November

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

will go to see my doc too though

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

but just need reassurance that september is not a factor here

Dr. Shahzad MD :

yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

september is not a factor at all

Dr. Shahzad MD :

since he did not ejaculate

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and you also took the MP

Dr. Shahzad MD :

MAP

Dr. Shahzad MD :

so I would like to reassure you that its HIGHLY UNLIKELY that you got pregnant in Sep

Dr. Shahzad MD :

JACUSTOMER-bouydtv0- :

ok thanks Dr Shazhad

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi Dr Shazhad


 

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
Yes, any more questions that you would like to ask?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi yes


 


I read on the Internet that you calculate how far along you are by saying it was from the first date of you last period which for me was 25th ish of October. But that cant be right I cabt be 6 weeks surely. I did tests all throughout oct and nov and was negative?


 


Maybe as I had 2 petiods in October its hard to say?


 


When would you say?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Are you still there?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
But that cant be right I cabt be 6 weeks surely. I did tests all throughout oct and nov and was negative?
I agree with you, if your pregnancy tests were negative and obviously he did not discharge inside you so its highly unlikely that he got you pregnant.
The irregularity in periods is most likely due to the MAP.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

so how will they calculate the due date do you think Dr Shazhad?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Relist: Answer came too late.
Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
What are you asking for now - this question is many months old?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no it was from yesterday?


 


 

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
okay - can you tell me what your 'new' question is....I'm asking because I see a date from the question from April 2013?
Thank you
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am trying to estasblish that as I took the MAP in Oct and had 2 periods, I cannot be 6 weeks pregnant? I understand you work out a due date from the first day of your last period but that would make me 6 weeks.


 


what would yo have said?


 


Do you agree with all Dr Shazahds responses above? In the sense that the incident in October what not what this pregancy was a result of, but early November?

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
I have some questions first....

When you took the MAP _ you mean the Emergency contraceptive pill(s)?

When was your LMP (last menstrual period)?

Do you have a positive pregnancy test?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, sorry, the emergency morning after pill


 


I took that on 1st October, 8 hours after incident


 


I had a bleed a week after that, then another bleed about a week after that.


 


I testec negative after those both.


 


I had sex on the 10th ish of Nov, so mid cycle. No period on Nov.


 


 

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
So you are asking if you are pregnant, but you have a negative pregnancy test, is that correct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no, sorry if I amnot being clear.


 


I have tsetd positive NOW, in the last 2 days.


 


I am trying to work out that I am pregnant now from the time in November, NOT october.

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
Okay so if you had sex on the 10th and you have a positive test Now, that means you would be about 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant (we write this as 5+3 weeks).

So the way to confirm this is with a proper ultrasound - and I would suggest doing the ultrasound the END of next week - that way you can see a fetal heart rate and measure what is known as the CRL - Crown Rump Length).

So you are not pregnant from the October incident - this is a pregnancy from November.

So when we date a pregnancy we add 2 weeks to the time of conception (and conception would be the same date as you would ovulate).

I hope this helps

Thanks very much.


 


last question. I also guess that if it was from the incident which happened 30th september (took MAP on the 1st Oct) I w9uld certainly know about it all 2 months down the line, and be showing a lot more?

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
Yes you are Not pregnant from that incident on September 30th.

So the BEST way to know everything at this point is with an ultrasound and I would highly suggest getting an ultrasound done the end of next week.

I wish you well

When are you going for an ultrasound?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I don't know, but I am seeing the mid wife on wednesday of next week


 


i didn't think they gave ultrasound until a while in

Expert:  Dr Owen replied 3 years ago.
That is perfect - the mid -wife should be able to do a Vaginal Ultrasound probe Next Wednesday and you should then be able to see a fetal heart rate along with a small fetus...
