Hi MrzSingleton, Just want to ask you if you have any idea if it's fine to drink milk for pregnant mom though i am not pregnant yet? i'm TTC for my second baby now after i had a miscarriage last January this year. i would like to be as healthy as i can since i'm diagnosed with PCOS and had low immune system during that time..

Please advise if you know any on how to help get a successful pregnancy this time. Thanks.

first thing stop using fabric softener it messes with your endocrine system. And about the milk thing if you can find it raw milk is what you want. your doctor will try to tell you that you cant drink raw milk but they are wrong! it is way better for you. just search the internet. I drank it my whole pregnancy and now that is the only milk I buy for my 2 year old son. Now if you want to try apple cyder vinegar as soon as i started drinking the stuff I got pregnant. do about 1 tsp. to 1 tbs. vin. (use only a raw vinegar like Brags) mix with = parts honey, maple or stevia. NOT sugar or artificial sweeteners. and just drink one of those a day, or more if you like.
hope this helps!

Raw milk is considered toxic and is now the leading cause of food born illness, even more than then raw/undercooked chicken (and chicken products like eggs) and pork. There's probably a reason it's hard to find raw milk........it's been banned by more than 30 states and the remaining are considering laws prohibiting it from being sold.
As far as apple cider vinegar, the chemical compound in vinegar can cause future allergies in unborn children. Much like eating peanuts can. I would advise any one not to listen to natureMOMMY. Yes, I am an expert on this subject. Who should you trust......someone who has 14 years of medical training or someone who believes a substance deemed toxic by the WHO, FDA, and EPA is good for you?
As far as milk, moderation is the key. Whole milk does contain fat and cholesterol and will be absorbed by the child. I would advise 2% milk and every two or three days whole milk if you find 2% just a bit to bland.
I would advise you to go to your OB/GYN and consider prenatal vitamins when you finally do conceive (they will be able to guide you to what they feel is best for you and your situation...such as being anemic, etc.). Till then use a daily multi-vitamin and increase your fiber intake (yes, 80% of women don't get enough fiber and that can weaken your immune system).

From the Center for Disease Control:

"TUESDAY, Feb. 21 (HealthDay News) -- Raw, or unpasteurized, milk causes 150 times more dairy product-related disease outbreaks than pasteurized milk. And states where the sale of raw milk is legal have twice as many outbreaks as states where it is illegal, according to a new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study."

Full story here:
http://gma.yahoo.com/raw-milk-causes-most- illness-dairy-products-cdc-210407351.html

Again, I would advise NOT to take advise from natureMOMMY. Drinking raw milk can, and will, harm not only you but your unborn child. I have reported her post so as no one else is tempted to take advice from it.

Pcos
Actually PCOS is poly cystic ovarian syndrome and It is not passed down from miter to daughter. It can be genetic but there are no real studies that prove it. All pcos is that you do not ovulate on a regular basis and have tiny to huge cysts on your overies that prevent you from having a period and ovulating. Symptoms include a higher testosterone level which can cause abnormal hair growth on women as well has pains in your overies. Most women can still get pregnant with pcos by using clomid which induces ovulation. I've been diagonsed and have been seeing a pcos/fertility specialist for 7 years and have done more research on this topic than any other in my life.

Stop with the judgment, none of us are perfect
Children are free...Financially challenged people shouldn't be denied the right to have someone to love. Besides, she didn't say she didn't have food, clean water, and clothing. She said she couldn't afford medical care. Medical care is outrageously expensive in America. It's really none of your business if she has a baby or not.

Children are not free...that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. You need MONEY to buy them the things they need, like food...clothing...water...school supplies. I am a teacher and I can definately say it is so unfair to the child when a "parent" is not financially or emotionally prepared for a child. Please be responsible and make sure you are able to financially provide for a child so the rest of us do not have to!!

You shouldn't be so quick to judge. I finished high school and went to college, all at a very young age. And I had more than one job and always fed my child. It's not fair for you to say what you said..

We all have to start somewhere. Some just start with less than others.

Your Ignorance In all it's Glory.
If you care so much about her child then you wouldn't even mind spending money on a child in need.. even if she isn't financially ready, she may be emotionally ready.. she could be the most warmhearted person in the world and you are over here saying you know more just because you are a teacher. so what. I've had teachers who were plain disrespectful and who didn't deserve the opportunity to go to school to become a teacher. because they were not mentally "PREPARED" .. I actually wanted to become a teacher.. I'm still going to try. even though you are a rude person doesn't mean you get to involve your academics and your accomplishments into making you a complete ass. seriously. I am a mother of one. BUT i do whatever it takes to have the money to pay for my son and the things he needs. i love him with all of my heart and if i were a teacher i would love every single one of my students unconditionally if they really needed money. ( as in the case of being poor and having a parent who loves them but cant provide who tries their hardest but just cant succeed) I would tell them to work their hardest and to pass every class and i will buy them new clothes and a pair of new shoes. stop being such a "know-it-all" because you know what? You don't know anything. Also, i was wondering why do you use the term quote: "parent" (quote end.)

well first off yes u can get pregnant without having a period second that statment heavyopwife made dont let that offend you in anyway.. Just because a person cant afford health insurance or to go to the docor doesnt mean that dont have the means to take care of their child. i was working at a home health agency for 1 1/2 years and they didnt offer insurance and i was making too much money to get assitance from the state so that statement she made was just uncalled for because you never know the circumstances behind a situation so you cant make any judgments.. just get keep trying and hopefully you'll have a success soon.. im actually in the same position and same age and i actually have insurance to go to the doctor but my gyno gave me provera to start it, it came 1 month and didnt come back.. she wanted me to start bc but me and the husband are ttc so i didnt want to.. so she told me to wait til sept and she'll go from there

when I got pregnant with my son I had not had my period in about 3 months. my dr seemed stumped at this. but all went fine. I have not had one since he is now 2 1/2 years. But for the whole getting pregnant thing try using apple cyder vinegar, make a drink with it. to taste: 1t to 1T vin. (a raw vinegar like Brags) mix with = parts honey, maple or stevia. NOT sugar or artificial sweeteners. I started drinking that one a day, and within a month got pregnant. another thing no fabric softener if disrupts the endocrine system.

Yes you can ovulate without a period.
Okay folks here is the real deal! YOU CAN OVULATE WITHOUT A Period....YES....you can get pregnant without have a regular period! The two distinctive portions of a woman�s monthly cycle, ovulating and having a period, are not directly related to one another. While each is distinct, and while one does not generally happen while the other is happening, that is where the relationship ends. It is possible to ovulate without having a period. It is also possible to have a period without ovulating. To understand why this is the case, there are things that you will need to understand about having a period, about when you ovulate, and about your monthly cycle in general.

It is significant to consider the timing of ovulation. Ovulation occurs approximately 14 days prior to the start of the next period. This means, for example, if a woman has a regular 28-day cycle, that she will ovulate on or around day 14 of her cycle. On the other hand, if a woman has a typically longer cycle, say for example a 32-day cycle, then she will ovulate later, in this case on the 18th day of her cycle. While the timing is not exact, and can vary from one woman to the next, or even from one cycle to the next, these are rough averages that you can use to start calculating ovulation in relation to your period.

It often happens that a woman will not have a period for one reason or another. Any number of things can cause a woman not to have a period. For example, low body weight can cause a woman to miss periods. In addition, strenuous exercise has also been shown to cause a woman to not have a period. However, during these times that the woman is not having a period, she may very well still be ovulating. Not ovulating is a completely different situation than not having a period, and can be caused by completely different things.

It is important to note that a woman can still become pregnant during her period. If she has a short cycle, and ovulation occurs near her period, the sperm could in theory live long enough to fertilize an egg, as sperm can live for between 3 and 5 days in a woman�s body.

Ovulate without period?
Summerlynn84 - WELL PUT! When I did a google search, this was the first post that came up and is exactly the information that I was looking for. My period is 22 days late, never was late prior, had sex which should of resulted in a pregnancy (it was at time of ovulation) and low and behold, I''m not pregnant... however, I was still wondering if you could get preggos if you missed your period... all information leans towards YES.

Thanks again!

GET A HORMONE BLOOD TEST!!
Hi, I have the same prob! i havent had my period since i last got off the pill in may 2009. My stupid doc kept telling me to wait and finally decided to reffer me to a specialist. I just recently found out that my hormone Prolactain was tooooo high to even get a period of ovulate. I suggest all you women out there to ask your doctor for a hormone test!!!!!!

My level is now back to normal, so fingers crossed there will be good news soon....

I had the same problem. I was lucky to get my period once a year. I went through testing with a fertility specialist and was told I have PCOS. They said it would be best to try to lose weight. I never really thought of myself as being too big but I guess everyone''s hormones react differently to weight. I lost 45lbs and now get my period every month. I still have not gotten pregnant but still trying. I''m gonna give it another year of trying ourselves but there''s always the option of fertility treatments.

Especially eHealthy
lilkatexx, it is extremely unlikely. You can anyways not experience pregnancy signs that soon after sex.

It will normally take a few months for your cycle to become normal and regular again. The symptoms you are describing can very well be from your body missing the artificial hormones.

Best of luck with TTC!

PLEASE HELP NO PERIODS HOWEVER WANTING ADVICE ON OVULATION!! :)
Hi all I am new to this site and would really appreciate some information/ advise from women out there in the same boat as me. My story is that I have not had a period since Jan this year (2010), it is now August and I am wondering if i am still ovulating? I have had bloods done for hormones etc and they were fine, i also had an ultra sound which showed multiply follicles in my right and left ovary however not consistant with Poly Syndrome as i have no symptoms i.e overweight, acene, excess hair etc. I have now started doing my BBT as recommended by my Doctor. I have been TTC since Feb 10 and i must admitt it is VERY frustrating not being aware on when to have intercourse as i have NO IDEA of when i am ovulating! My doc won't refer me to a Gyno as they don't think anything is wrong?? I am not underweight, i regular exercise however i have done so for 3years now and before Jan i was getting regular periods (always a long cycle being av 40days). I got married in Feb and they think it maybe due to stress (i didn't feel stressed just anxious etc). ANY info etc would be so greatly appreciated!

Many thanks in advance! Smile

Anyone actually get pregnant while getting no period?
Hey all,
I went off Yaz in october 2009 after my husband and I married. We wanted to start TTC starting in 2010. After going off the pill, I was getting my period every 6 weeks. January 12 I started a period for week, then it stopped for 5 days then I continued to bleed (more of a spotting) until FEB 12!!! I did not have another period again. I was getting all the symptons but the period would never come. I went to my gyno this summer and got TONS of bloodwork done and all kinds of tests (of what, I'm not sure anymore) and she put me on Provera to start my period (and it did) and Clomid to get me to ovulate (Ovulation test told me the 2 days I did). We did not get pregnant this month (not many people GET IT on the first try). BUT, I also did not get a period. She wants me to go on Provera once more, then come into the office to see what the "next step" is. I'm really really scared. My husband and I want a baby so badly.
I'm reading up on this PCOS business. I remember after a transvaginal ultrasound she said that I had little cysts on my ovaries. Although she said it was normal and that all women get cysts on the ovaries before ovulating. She though my brain and my ovaries weren't communicating and that was the reason for no period. So, now reading about PCOS, I wonder if this is an issue for me? Why wouldn't my doc say anything to me about this? I do have an acne problem (although, yes, it has seemed like it worsened), but always have. I also do have some random body hairs, but a lot of women I know say they get that too (a random chin hair, a few hairs making a "happy trail" and a little toe hair). I am not overweight, or underweight. I exercise regularly. I will definitely ask my doctor about this PCOS stuff.

Here is my question, we are all reporting these issues, and yes its comforting to know that others are experiencing this, but has anyone out there ended up pregnant the natural way while experiencing these issues? In other words, what kind of road do I have ahead of me?
