    It's not like pregnancies just happen. At some point they had to have unprotected sex or had a condom break or something.
    Piss on a stick everytime you get laid? That would add up. Maybe they should just add it to the standard prefight medical checks

    So's weighing in or having to tell the world about your injuries and probably a ton of other stuff fighters have to do

Usually you have to be in the 250lb range before you can end up giving birth without knowing you were pregnant.
    Do you happen to have a list of such medications? Not being facetious, it seems like something to know.

    I'll admit ignorance on the subject of amenorrhea-I've only known one woman with secondary amenorrhea in my life and she practiced safe sex even with it. Apologies for my ignorance.

    This article has a partial list:
    http://www.womenshealthmag.com/healt...g-interactions

    Couple of minutes of googling will get you a few more sources, but they are pretty much repeats of that list.

    Do they have a replacement, or do we have to wait even longer before we get to see Gina weigh in again?

    A friend once mentioned to me that she'd accidentally smoked pot and drank while pregnant with her first child.

    Which is to say that she smoked and drank on purpose, but didn't find out she was pregnant until after returning from a serious two week party trip to Mexico.

    She stopped drinking and smoking after that, of course. Baby turned out fine.

    It depends on what kind of contraception they're using. Going from one of the more popular ones, Levlen ED: Consult your pharmarcist on individual drugs.

    Drug interactions that result in an increased clearance of sex hormones can lead to breakthrough bleeding and oral contraceptive failure. This has been established with hydantoins, barbiturates, primidone, carbamazepine and rifampicin; oxcarbazepine, ritonavir, topiramate, felbamate, griseofulvin and herbal medicines containing St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) are also suspected. The mechanism of this interaction appears to be based on the hepatic enzyme inducing properties of these drugs. Maximal enzyme induction is generally not seen for two to three weeks but may then be sustained for at least four weeks after the cessation of drug therapy.
    Also HIV protease (e.g. ritonavir) and non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (e.g. nevirapine) and combinations of them, have been reported to potentially affect hepatic metabolism.
    Contraceptive failures have also been reported with the concomitant administration of antibiotics, such as ampicillins and tetracyclines. The mechanism of this effect has not been elucidated.
    Women on short-term treatment with any of the above mentioned classes of drugs or individual drugs should temporarily use a barrier method in addition to the COC, i.e. during the time of concomitant drug administration and for seven days after their discontinuation. For women on rifampicin a barrier method should be used in addition to the COC during the time of rifampicin administration and for 28 days after its discontinuation. If concomitant drug administration runs beyond the end of the active tablets in the COC pack, the next COC pack should be started without the usual placebo tablet interval.
    Nothings perfect. Including drugs. I have a cousin who got pregnant while on the pill.
    Pregnancy tests should be on the fighters own perogative, not something that a body whould have to test for.

    It raises another question, though. If a woman is found to be in the early stanges of pregnancy, should she be dsiqualified or made to forfeit?
