Are you female with reproductive organs?
Have you had unprotected sex recently with a man?
Then yes , you could be.

Want to know for definite? Buy & use a pregnancy test wink grin

MN isn't that bad for asking this question. I think people are just wanting someone to talk to about it, rather than people tell them whether they're pregnant or not.

Yahoo Q/A pregnancy on the other hand... Have you ever seen that?. There is many a scare about 'dry humping with clothes on' and worry about wether the semen deposited on her back would swim and find her vagina and then get her pregnant. The fact she had unprotected sex didn't concern her because he pulled out. but she couldn't sleep for worrying about this super sperm that goes swimming down backs and into vaginashmm It's the most frustrating site I've ever been on. It just made me want to scream and bang all their heads together!

I'm getting the rage again just thinking about it.

And, post in "Conception" ie the whole topic for getting pregnant!

Then once you know you are, you can come over to "Pregnancy" for questions about being pregnant.

And chat about pregnancy (by due date or theme) goes in "Antenatal Clubs" because there's so much of it, no other pregnancy question would get a look in if it crept in to this one.

"Have you had unprotected sex recently with a man?"

Not just unprotected sex given that nothing is 100% effective! <<eyeballs ds1>>

The alternative to using a test of course is jsut to wait 9 months and see what happens.

musicalfanjo that is so true about Yahoo!

I'm still hoping the stork brings them in a pink or blue blanket grin

toohardtothinkofaname Sun 27-Dec-15 12:29:34

I love all of these replies! Yahoo sounds bloody awesome, will have to go & read some to pass away the time haha

goodnightdarthvader1 Sun 27-Dec-15 14:47:32

Stella, exactly, that annoys me the most. Pregnancy even gets people asking the best way to conceive!

MusicalFanjo Sun 27-Dec-15 16:08:26

toohard honestly it's ridiculous. I have had to resist the urge to create an account many times now grin

Who the fuck takes a picture of their bloody knickers to ask if it's implantation bleeding? How the hell is anyone going to know that? Implantation blood doesn't come out in morse fucking code FFS.

I clearly have some built up anger about this site grin

Hi guys. I am 24 and have recently found out I am pregnant it was a shock as it wasn't planned. I'm married and have my own home. My partner was very happy however goes out with yhen boys every weekend some nights doesn't come home at all. He has always done this however now I'm expecting a baby I want it to change. But I know it won't. So now I'm questioning what to do about the baby because I know I'm going to be alone. Any advice would be appreciated

toohardtothinkofaname Sun 27-Dec-15 17:27:01

musicalfanjo morse code! That is absolutely fantastic haha grin

goodnightdarthvader1 Sun 27-Dec-15 17:44:02

Lulu, why on earth did you post that on this thread? And I don't understand your question. Are you asking if you should get an abortion?

MusicalFanjo Sun 27-Dec-15 17:46:10


lulu try posting on the board I linked to above. You should get good advice there.

Christmascheerful Sun 27-Dec-15 17:50:16

lulu if you start a new thread on pregnancy choices you may get some advise...

I dont understand why people do the whole could I be pregnant thread.... JUST POAS FFS... negative ok try again in a few days... positive... ok your preggo... end of.

Heavenscent86 Sun 27-Dec-15 21:28:13

I've often wondered why people post to ask this when they've not even done one test yet. Kind of makes more sense when they are getting negative tests but their period is still late.
I really think I should check out the yahoo pregnancy thing for a good laugh!

Eminado Sun 27-Dec-15 21:33:14

"I've often wondered why people post to ask this when they've not even done one test yet."

I know! I always click on them and then mentally face palm wink

Kaytee1987 Mon 28-Dec-15 16:06:02

It's always the same people time and time again who always get given the same advise then wonder why people get 'short' with them.

Kaytee1987 Mon 28-Dec-15 16:08:06

Kaytee1987 I know who you're thinking of, I'm at the point now where I'm thinking that person is a troll. Either that or a complete idiot.

Kaytee1987 Mon 28-Dec-15 17:02:04

The most recent one mslg? I honestly can't tell, what would someone get out of it if they were a troll? On the other hand her story just didn't make any sense.
