EVERY MAN pre-ejaculates when aroused and stimulated. this is not premature ejaculation, which affects some men. a few milliliters of semen leak out during the act of intercourse, even if he does not climax and ejaculate. this is why the pull-out method does not always work

U can get pregnant from the pre-ejaculation. It still has sperm in it.

actually its a rare chance you can pre ejaculation does not contain sperm. only way you can for pre cum is if he didn't urinate after coming the previous time.

It is very possible to have excess spotting or bleeding, or even creamy white or clear discharge while pregnant. This discharge or blood is most likely left over from your last period. Or your body holds the excess blood or discharge until the time that you are suppose to get you period. This happens to many people, don't think that it is uncommon or not normal. It can be very normal. And sorry that this post is so late...

This is such a common thing i've heard espeacially when you don't have a regular cycle. You don't know when oulation occurs. I knew a girl who got preggo and didn't know untill she had to deliver(she was so skinny she never had a belly)..... Sounds strange but it does happen. Some women can go months without having a normal period. When this happens you need to see your doctor to get regular. Sometimes they actually put you on the pill.

having sex for the first time, or having sex a lot then stopping can mess up your cycle. I was never very regular but when I started having sex and then would go a few weeks or a month without it, my schedule would be far from predictable. Especially if she's young, periods won't be regular all the time because of hormones and such. But she could be pregnant but not have a high enough hcg level in her urine to pick up on a take home test. I have completely missed a month before and not been pregnant but i've also heard of women being 4 weeks pregnant when the test still won't pick it up. If she's worried, get her to go to the doctor, insurance should cover a blood test. But if not, mine was right around 50 dollars with no insurance.

i just got off birth control too and am having early cramps and have super soar nipples. Painful nipples! The cramps feel like my period too and i'm so hugely bloated in my belly where I usually do not retain weight. Are you bloated? I'm very thirsty too. When is your period supposed to arrive? Mine is supposed to be a week away now and i've been having cramps for the past week.

Also, i've been having crazy dreams! Sexual dreams so my hormones must be raging! Has anyone experienced that?

I also have PCOS and I've been experiencing the same things..sexual dreams,bloating (my stomach is usually flat),exhaustion, slight pain in my ovary, cloudy,milky discharge, excessive hunger, cravings for dairy products and meat, my breasts have grown a little but no soreness or pain,lower back pain, pain in my legs and feet,hot flashes (I'm usually cold natured), indigestion as well as gas and I could go on and on about the strange feelings I've been experiencing. Needless to say; I'm not myself. I never have regular periods so I don't know when I'm "late". This is driving me crazy!!! Any advice would help.

Extra Worry
Dear all,

i am been waiting for so long to get pregnant. I did intercourse with my partner on 19th 20th and 21st sep where my period last due was 14th sep. I knew that my best ovulation day was falled on 24th sep. I got bad cramped on my lower abdomen on 25th sep next day. I got bad back pain as well. Now is 26th sep, the pain seems gone. I did not have any sore breast at all. I am really worry that I am not pregnant this time. I still wait for the spotting to come but worry about that I am not pregnant. My period is due on 7th oct next month. When is the best day I can have pregnancy test ? Please advice. I wish to get pregnant all this long.

Regards,
mints

it could have been that since she was new to the sex game, then her body had to get use to the change. If she not pregnant then don't be alarmed because our bodies have to adjust to our lifestyle.

i was reading this post and have had the same questions myself. I just went off b/c this month and started trying a few days after af. A week after af I got sore nipples and had terrible cramping for a week. The cramping went away but the nipples are still sore. I have no other symptoms that others have stated that are signes of pg. Can anyone answer the question if it is the b/c making these changes or if it is possible signes of pg? The only other thing I have noticed are my nipples are bright red with brown around the tip and very sensitive. Now with white glands appearing. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I am also still six days from when af will start. Thanks much!!
