    Could I Be Pregnant?? Read This Before Posting
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    The members here and I have noticed we have been getting a lot of folks coming to this board asking "Could I Be Pregnant?" .

    This Pregnancy board is here for women who are ALREADY pregnant and have questions for the expert and other members about their pregnancy.

    The expert here cannot tell you whether you could be pregnant via an online forum. There are a lot of factors involved. However, you can get some excellent member feedback on the WebMD Could I Be Pregnant community.

    Once you've confirmed your pregnancy, we encourage you to come back to this board for member and expert feedback, or join in on our Pregnancy: First Trimester board to find a group of friends who will follow you through your whole pregnancy and beyond into our Parenting communities.

    Good luck!

    Hello Elizabeth,
    What forum would you suggest for me. I am 41 years old and am planning a pregnancy in the next year. I have one child who will be 18 in August and I know a lot has changed since then and I have questions about stopping birth control and getting pregnant at this point in my life.
    Thank you.

    Does sexual intercourse early on have any impact on maintaining the pregnancy? We are trying to have a baby, and my period is not due until Friday. I just started to spot a little. My husband believes that intercourse is causing the spotting and may prevent the pregnancy from sustaining, if I am pregant. Please advise.

    I am now 3 weeks away from my period and on july 9th had my period it ended on july 14th three days ago I was ovulating and had spotting yesterday it stopped this morning. I woke up this morning and had to run to the bathroom and I had nothing in my stomach and still managed to vomit I am not on B C and have been having unprotected sex with my husband. Could I be pregnant or am I just crazy?

    I have been really terrible about my birth control. My boyfriend and i have unprotected about twice a week and the cum always stays inside me. I was supposed to start my period 6 days ago, and for 4 days before i was supposed to start i was getting light brown and white discharge. And instead of getting my period, I have had light brown like watery discharge of some kind, and for a couple days, when i would wipe, there would be a dark brown mucus like clot, but not really a clot. more stringy i guess. its there every time i wipe, no red blood at all. I need to know if i'm pregnant, but everyone says its too early. and the tests i have taken say negative. any insight?

    I have been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend and my period just ended four days ago. Then yesterday I started spotting and continued to spot a little today but I had mild cramping today. Could I be pregnant?
