Nail Care & Manicures/Can I get pregnant?


Hello, my names Amberlynn. I have been with my fiancÚ for 16 months now and we have been trying to have a baby, but I am afraid that I am not able to conceive. My fiancÚ and I never use condoms and he alway ejaculates inside me. My periods have been irregular for a while now. I always feel like I am have symptoms. There has been another guy before him that has ejaculated in me and my period very late and I was not pregnant. Also, sometimes my period is very heavy, randomly goes away for a day then comes back. And I have spotted before and still..nothing. Could there be something wrong with me? I am terrified that I will not be able to have children, please help.
Thank you.

Hi Amberlynn--

I think you may have meant to send this question to an expert in a different field of work. You probably had the same window open or something, after you asked me about your nails.

So-- let me assure you that this question is COMPLETELY OUT of my field of expertise. BUT, just for anecodotal sake, I will put in my personal 2 cents: EVERY SINGLE WOMAN I have known who has been told they can't get pregnant-- or had come to that conclusion on their own-- has gotten pregnant.

First: address this question to the appropriate expert on the forums.
Second: I'm sure he/she will back me up by suggesting that you see a doctor to run some tests to get a better idea of your situation.
Third: If you do not want to get pregnant, use birth control. No matter what you think, no matter what anyone tells you.

But remember-- I do nails. :-) Nails is the only thing I'm qualified (on this forum) to give "expert" advice on. So anything I say on this subject is purely from my personal observation/experience and has no medical validity whatsoever.
