How can you tell who the father is?

Ask your doctor the estimated date of conception. This should give you a better idea of who it might be. You should also have a test done on the baby and the two men to determine which one the father. This will probably be the only way to know for sure. I hope you get all this settled and good luck. Hope this answers your question.

I have a friend that is about 6weeks pregnant,and she had sexual intercourse with two guys around the some time she concieved.One guy "PULLED OUT",butwhose to say pre-ejeculation doesn't work?(Does IT?)But her husband actually ejeculated in her three time,so know she doesn't know!!So you aren't alone.Get the two men to take a DNA test to find out the paternity of your child it deserves that much.LOL

Planned Parenthood

Is planned parenthood free?

They provide services on a "sliding scale". Basically, it's what you can afford.
The answer depends on your local Planned Parenthood, whether your state provides funding for family planning through Planned Parenthood and other Title X agencies, the reason for your visit (must meet federal Title X guidelines), and your income and family size. Contact your local Planned Parenthood to find out if there are programs in your area that help provide free services. For instance, in New York, some patients may get free services through Title X sliding scale, Family Planning Benefits Program, 24-month extension coverage after a Medicaid-covered pregnancy, or presumptive Medicaid eligibility for pregnancy coverage.

Why are people against planned parenthood?

For the simple reason they perform medical abortions. The shame is that there is not enough clinics in the US and the majority of all their work contains of birth control, help for pregnant women and cancer screenings for men and women. Abortions is just about 3-4% of everything they do and not even all clinics do it and it is legal. if there were no PPL all the patients would have to go to other clinics and the hospitals and the lines would be longer then ever and many would get care too late. With cancer it's crucial to find it early to have the best outcome.
