I have a c section in Nov of 2008. After two weeks of being home I had to go back because of infections. Two weeks in the hospitol away frm my newborn baby girl, not to metion the pain and torture. I had to have a second "clean-up" surgery because 5 kinds of antibotics didn't work. We are trying again and now I am worried all those complications may have made me infertal. Is this possible?

Hi, I am using the clearblue fertility monitor for 2 months now. My first month was normal, I had 2 high fertility days, followed by 1 peak day and 2 other days of high. On my second month, I had a high on day 16, then I was unable to test for 3 days due the fact that I was out of the country and I forgot my monitor (so I don't know if I had a peak or not). I am now on day 26 and my monitor is still showing high fertility (10 days of high!) Do somebody knows what that means? May I be pregnant? Please help me! Thanks :-)

So, I've suffered from recurrent miscarraiges in the past (4 that I know of)...and my husband and I haven't used any sort of birth control for the past two years...partly due to the fact that the birth control pill causes me to gain significant amount of weight. I've been working on my weight loss actively for the past year (the latest miscarraige was back in Dec...being depressed from that doesn't help weight loss). I may currently be pregnant, but am still considered "overweight"...I think I'm almost severely overweight, but my doctor said "no" question is, if I AM pregnant, is it safe for me to SAFELY lose weight if I keep eating properly (healthy foods) and exercise daily (just walking 5 miles)?

Hi i am 27 years old and recently was given clomid due to the fact that I have Pcos days 2-6 and went to see my doctor on day 12 and she said that I had 4 Follicles on my right side which was 23.87x14.96mm, 25.24 x 18.39mm, 18.84 x 17.56mm and 12.53x17.86mm. I was given Novarel injection at 8pm on Day 12 and told to have sex days 12-15 and to start Crinone on day 16. What are my chances of getting pregnant? and could all of my follicles be released with the HCG shot? and all be Fertilized?
