well congrats on being a daddy but it doesn't matter if it's the first time you have sex. sex is sex
There are actual several more factors than a missed period that a girl can look for to see if she's pregnant. If she "feels" pregnant, that means she might be nauseous at random times, get headaches, more hot flashes, etc. A missed period is more of a confirmation.
Missing your menstrual cycle does not always confirm if you're pregnant. Yes, it is a higher ratio of confirmation that you're pregnant but it is still possible to have your menstrual cycle while pregnant without it being suspected as a sign of miscarriage, unusual spotting (can be an indication of a different medical problem), or a zygote (fertilized egg) attempting to plant it's self to the uterus lining, etc. Some women have reported going almost full term with the baby while they still had their monthly visit and others have reported a couple of months into their pregnancy (usually light bleeding) from what I have read, heard and educated myself a little bit on the topic out of curiosity as I plan on having children in the next few years myself. I found that information pretty fascinating and surprising as I did not know women were still capable of menstruating while pregnant and have that classified as normal under an unusual circumstance. However I do believe this ratio of menstruating while pregnant if I am not mistaken is still lower in comparison to confirmation of being pregnant by missing your cycles for the next however many months if the baby decided to arrive early, on time, late, etc. To be honest, I prefer to be on the "normal" side of things and rather have that confirmation by not having my cycles personally lol.
Cazz.. What you're saying is that having your period doesn't mean that you're not pregnant. I have not heard of situations in which a woman with regular periods who suddenly doesn't have it that do not mean that such woman is pregnant. TL;DR: imo yes not having your period is a confirmation of pregnancy. But since I'm not a doc like our favorite bastard, I don't have the required knowledge to say that without a doubt.
It's not menstruating if you're pregnant, since menstruation by definition includes releasing new eggs and shedding the uterine lining. You're correct that vaginal bleeding is still possible though, for a variety of reason. Also, missing a period doesn't mean you are pregnant either. You can miss a period due to changes in your weight, illness, stress, or a variety of other things. TL;DR version: whether or not you have vaginal bleeding is NOT a reliable indication either way.
First time or not, she can still get pregnant...I thought they taught you that in health class.
How stupid are you? It doesn't matter if it's the first time, if you didn't use protection there is every chance of getting pregnant.
Is no one reading the comments before posting? Yes, it is possible to get pregnant on the first time but from the way it reads it sounds like they had sex very recently. You won't 'feel' pregnant two days after. Thus she cheated on him. Or the OP is an idiot and thinks a several weeks is very recent.
Some women have reported "feeling" pregnant as soon as it happens. It's not supposed to be something they physically feel, more like having a hunch about it. It's actually often included in the signs and symptoms of pregnancy (because of how often it happens and ends up being correct); throwing up, missed period, just feeling pregnant, etc...
196 both of those statements are incorrect. Implantation bleeding can occur a few days after conception and positive tests a few weeks after. I got a positive blood test at a little less than four weeks. Also, as soon as implantation occurs you can have symptoms. Mine started at week 3.
This reminds me of the time I got in a bit of trouble in high school for ending an article by saying "and remember everyone, Make love not babies"... But seriously man! No glove no love!
I think the Op was trying to say that it is too soon for her to know just by feel that she is pregnant. If you have doubt get a DNA test done. Otherwise Congratulations you're a daddy!
#54, you CAN'T feel being pregnant after just a few hours. The pregnant feeling comes from elevated hormones, and they definitely are not elevated enough for you to feel a thing just a few hours after sex. You have to wait two weeks for your hormones to be elavated enough for a test to detect it, and sometimes even then it takes longer.
#54 I'm assuming you've only had sex twice then, since that's impossible in the context you're writing in. The only way you can be sure you're pregnant on such a short notice is if you are tracking your ovulation and not using protection. (Getting pregnant on purpose) Even then, you might be mistaken.
i actually had my husband tell me that he thought the sex felt different and that he thought that i would be pregnant after it. we were trying for a kid but not ovulation tracking. i thought it was quite funny and it had been said as a joke but turns out he was right. of course there is no way to know for definate what sexacape concieved a child but it was in thr two week windoe when we worked it back.
How does one "feel" pregnant? And if it was like 15 minutes after you had sex, I'd run from her OP. Maybe it's another dude's baby and she's lying to you.
#60 Okay I did take the worst case scenario, with the sperm surviving a few days before fertilization and the egg taking rather long to implant. But even then, the hormone levels rise slowly, and it takes longer for a home test to be able to detect it than a test at the doctor's because the home tests are less sensitive. (While it's not exactly clear which the girl in the fml used, I would assume a home test because it's quicker and easier.)
I read this as not being surprised that she got pregnant their first time but him being surprised that it's been long enough for her to already think she was pregnant. Maybe he thought it took longer to have symptoms and that's why he was doubtful (not because it was their first time).
Everyone interprets things differently for different reasons. Not because they "can't fucking read." Get your head out of your ass, I'm sure you've had opinions that aren't the "right" ones before. Also, aren't YOU passing judgement on others for that very comment you're making? Tisk tisk...
