Hi

Thanks for the query.

How long are your cycles for usually

Has there been any recent change in the duration of your cycles or any bleeding problems

Usually fertile period is on or a few days around the period of ovulation. This means that period of ovulation is always on the 14th day prior to the next period. Having unprotected sex during the fertile period will increase your chances to conceive.

In your case period of ovulation will be on 9/22/11 and the fertile period will be few days before and after the period of ovulation which is approximately from 9/19/11 to 9/23/11.

You complain of burning sensation on passing urine which can be due to urinary infection which is common in women due to various factors. You should drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables. Also drink Cranberry juice to help relieve the symptoms. If the pain and burning sensation is not relieved in a couple of days it could be due to possible urethral injury or stone etc. which needs to be confirmed by your Doctor.

Pulling sensation could be attributed to possible urinary bladder irritation due to the infection or could also be from the bowels or even uterus. It can happen even in hormonal disorders.

Usually these symptoms including 'throwing up' are not considered specific symptoms of pregnancy. Only a positive pregnancy test usually after 7-10 days after unprotected sex during fertile period will help diagnose pregnancy.

If you miss your period you can get a pregnancy test to confirm if you are pregnant. If yes, then you should consult your Doctor and get necessary tests and advice for the proper care for your pregnancy.

Do get the test done and consult with your Doctor in this regard. Take care of your health if you might be pregnant. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. Avoid taking any sort of medication without consulting your Doctor first.

Wishing you GOOD LUCK !!!!

I hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,
