You might be having a bartholin's cyst, this is a swelling of the gland which lubricates the vaginal opening before sex, is is painfull, if yes it can be an abcess. Please get a gynec check up. Very rarely, it can be a lipoma, which is just a bening fat tissue swelling.

Menses can get delayed after taking the pill or with stress or hormonal changes also. As your test is already negative keep repeating it every week till you get menses. Even faint second line is also positive and you have to read the reports within 5 min of putting urine. Also use good company card like velocit card to avoid mistakes bcos of card.

Since if you are not staying with your husband during ovulation days then it will be difficult to conceive soon. So you should try with iui if you want to conceive soon. Or you can monitor your cycle with an ovulation kit and if possible plan your stay with your husband during ovulation days.

Endometrial Scratching and IVF - Can it Help You Get Pregnant?

Endometrial Scratching and IVF - Can it Help You Get Pregnant?

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a medical procedure followed for those women or couples suffering from infertility or for certain specific genetic problem. In the normal course, women or couples experience positive results within a few IVF cycles. However, in spite of reasonable pregnancy rates, some women may require few more cycles to achieve pregnancy. In such cases, in order to ensure a healthy pregnancy, the gynecologist may suggest the women undergo Endometrial Scratching before IVF. 

Endometrium explained in brief: 

The uterus is located in the pelvic region and it is in the size and shape of a pear. The inner cavity of the womb or uterus is protected by the tissue lining called endometrium, also called endometrial. The endometrium plays a significant role in supporting the pregnancy. 

The enhanced success of achieving pregnancy: 

The endometrial scratching procedure is a very simple one, which is resorted, so as to improve the results of IVF procedure. In this procedure, the gynecologist uses a very fine catheter and makes a small scratch on the endometrial lining. In fact, the scratch causes a kind of inflammatory reaction in the uterus. This inflammatory reaction induces the endometrium to be highly receptive to embryos during the successive menstrual cycle. This added receptivity enhances the success of pregnancy during the next menstrual cycle. 

Considering the higher level of success in achieving pregnancy, the endometrial scratching procedure has gained popularity in the IVF procedure. However, some of the other issues related to endometrial scratching may be as follows: 

  1. Endometrial scratching optimises the uterine lining and thereby, makes it easier to continue the embryo implanting procedure. Normally, before the endometrial scratching procedure, the gynecologist may suggest endometrial biopsy. 
  2. The endometrial procedure is usually suggested for those women who had two or more unsuccessful IVF procedures, despite having good quality embryos. However, in some cases, depending on the health of the patient and various other factors, the gynecologist may suggest this endometrial scratching at the very first IVF procedure. This procedure can be availed either for fresh embryos of the couple or frozen embryos or for the donor egg. 
  3. Although this is a part of a surgical procedure; endometrial scratching is very simple and painless and it is done without administering anesthesia. The procedure does not require any hospitalisation. In fact, the patient can go home soon after the procedure. Except for a few pain killers, this procedure does not require any extensive medication. 

This is a safe and easy procedure. Neither does it lead to any side effects, nor is the procedure burdensome for your wallet. Many couples have been benefited by this endometrial scratching procedure. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am a 21 year old girl found a lump in my right breast, which doctor to consult.

Lump in breast at this age is not an uncommon finding. It is probably a benign lump, what we call fibroadenoma and in most of the cases nothing needs to be done. However to confirm it, I would suggest you to have it examined by a surgeon. Thanks.

Argipreg sachets and high protein diet will help. It will not change placental position. Anterior placenta is ok, do not worry about that.

You can take a second opinion with another gynecologist and get clarification about your wife's present status of health. She should strive to maintain physical and mental fitness by adapting a very healthy life style. She should start exercising everyday. Yoga (including pranayam and meditation) can be very beneficial if done in a correct manner) Eat only healthy food and avoid all junk and processed food. Include more of fruits and vegetables. You can also try homeopathy which is a holistic science and addresses the problem and tries to treat at its root. A detailed history is necessary to begin homeopathic treatment. You can contact me for a personal consultation.

No, 2.5 kg is an ideal birth weight so don't get tensed and try to eat well and try to have still more birth weight rather than becoming worried, don't worry you still have 2-3 weeks time to have delivery.

Smoking mothers do affect the health of growing babies in their wombs, so does environmental pollution and low levels of oxygen in the blood. Regarding augmentation surgery, since implants are kept on the chest muscles, not on the glands, theoretically it does not affect lactation, but there is no research or date available about lactation after breast enlargement surgeries. Ask her to give up smoking, it is a small sacrifice made by a mother to be for the sake of baby.

Hi doctor. Me and my boyfriend had intercourse last Sunday. He was not fully into me. But I did not bleed and I had much pain. I'm a virgin. I have pcod. It was just for 30 sec. Is there any chance of pregnancy? Please I'm worried.

Gynaecologist,
Hi doctor. Me and my boyfriend had intercourse last Sunday. He was not fully into me. But I did not bleed and I had m...
You say your boy friend was" not fully" into you, and that you did not bleed. Vagina is the place where the penis gets inserted at sex. Vagina has a outer covering called hymen and this hymen has a central small hole through which the penis passes at sex. While most of the women have bleeding if hymen is torn during sex, some do not have it in some women the hole in the hymen is elastic enough to allow the penis to go beyond it. So even though you may have an intact hymen and no bleeding and your boyfriend has not been" fully into" you, it could be that he has either ruptured your hymen or gone beyond it due to its elasticity. In some men the pre ejaculatory fluid which comes at erection and drops out of the penis when being inserted, it may contain sperms. So there could be a" slim" chance of pregnancy, if such a sperm has been released. But by and large pre ejaculatory fluid doesnot contain sperms and so the chances of the pregnancy are" rare" at the most. The chances of the pregnancy are high if the intercourse has happened in the fertile days if 72 hours have not passed since the intercourse, it may be prudent to take a emergency contraceptive pill for safety. Do not worry. If you are feeling very worried consult a gynecologist.

There is no chance to get pregnant because you got the periods after having sex on 2nd august. Now you should wait for the periods for 3 more days, if it does not appear then take pulsatilla 200, 5 drops, morning empty stomach for 3 days.
