how can a man have pregnancy symptoms? you are carriyng the baby na so you will have. if he is not beleiving then get DNA test done it will confirm who is the father.

Pain Medicine & Palliative Care Specialist Dr. Prof Sukdev Nayak's  Response
Marriage, pregnancy are very committed relationship. This needs mutual trust and care for each other. Males never get pregnancy symptoms except in rare type of animals. The symptoms are due to changes in the female body as the pregnancy advances. There are many chemical changes in the mother's body and internal environment. yes the father can be proved by DNA test, but only after the child is born. It can be done even before the birth of the baby, by taking some fluid from the uterus, but with danger to the baby.

Hello Doctor, I am a 45 y.o. woman turning 46 in 3 months. I have always been in superb health except and on and off depression and anxiety. I have had my hormone tested to evaluate the quality of my eggs for fertility at 42 and the doctor had said that I was able to conceive. Unfortunately, I kept waiting the right man which I didn t meet yet. Now, I am going through a crisis every time I have my cycle I think of how many eggs I am loosing. My cycle is regular but noticed a change, e.g. they are heavy for two days then very light the rest of cycle. Also, I have fibroids that made my cycle heavier but less than four years ago. I am sad that I am not a Mom and start thinking that I may still have a chance. I want to freeze my ovules and am following a diet that enhance the quality of the eggs (Maca, Wheatgrass, etc..) and not sure I will find a clinic that will accept freezing my eggs at this age. I feel that my health is that of a 30 y.o woman, at least that what my doc thought of it at age 42. Please let me know if there is a chance for me to have a baby at this age and what are my options if any :) Thank you and have a nice day!

I took a HPT 5 days before my expected period. I tested the next day and it was negative. My breasts are usually sore about a week to a week 1/2 before my period. They didn't start getting extremely sore until today. My period is due Sunday. I have three children and have had many symptoms of pregnancy including milky white discharge without smell, very tired and lethargic, nausea and some vomiting sensitivity to certain smells and my breasts are aching. Although a lot of these symptoms I'm having are usually pre menstrual symptoms, could I be pregnant?

Hello, I have been very nauseated the past 4 days. I have only gotten sick a couple times. I have had headaches and when I stand up my heart will race and i get kind of shakey. My stomach always hurts and seems to more after I eat something. My appetite is gone. I noticed that i started having a brownish discharge on tuesday. I also think I got bite by a spider on the back of my left leg right under my butt. I have been putting hydrocortisone cream on it which has been helping but I wasn t sure if that could be a factor of me feeling sick or of there is a chance of pregnancy.
