It reduces in third trimester that is quite natural but still stay under the treatment of your gynaecologist and follow her advise.

You should control weight, get USG done and check hormone levels after consulting gynecologists and take drugs accordingly. Get rid of stress.

My wife age is 25. She is in 21 weeks pregnant women now. Can I have intercourse with her.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
My wife age is 25. She is in 21 weeks pregnant women now. Can I have intercourse with her.
Yes, you can have sex during pregnancy. Provided you have some precautions. Avoid sex in the last month of pregnancy. Let the pregnant lady have the last say in the matter. Respect her wish. If she refuses, do not fight. Think of other ways to have sexual pleasure, like masturbation, oral sex (women does to man) etc. Anal sex is not to be done in pregnancy as piles are common and liable to bleed. Use a condom at each sex, to prevent the infection from affecting the pregnant woman whose immunity is reduced during pregnancy. Avoid missionary position as it causes pressure on the pregnant tummy. Use side by side position or woman on top position or woman at edge of bed and man standing position to have sex.

There are multiple reasons for delay in periods but for a sexually active female, pregnancy as a case should be ruled out first. Even if you did I use condom it offers more than 80% protection from pregnancy, but not 100%. So it would be advisable that you ask her to rule out pregnancy using urine pregnancy test. If it's positive, it is likely that she is pregnant. Even if negative she should consult gynecologist for necessary treatment as periods are delayed by more than 10 days by now.

There is no way the sex can be ascertained and there is no timing or position which can assure you a male conception. This is decided by nature purely.

Cervicitis - Common Symptoms & Treatment

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Nagpur
Cervicitis - Common Symptoms & Treatment

The lower part of uterus, which eventually leads into the vagina in the female reproductive system in humans is called the cervix uteri or in simple words, cervix. The inflammation of this part of the reproductive system is called Cervicitis.

Causes

Inflammation in the cervix is caused due to irritation, infection or injury to the cells, which align the cervix. Any one of a number of infections, mainly sexually transmitted diseases can cause cervicitis, of which the most common are chlamydia , mycoplasma , ureaplasma and gonorrhea. Chlamydia accounts for almost 40% of the total cases. Less common causes of cervicitis are Trichomoniasis (Trichomonas vaginalis) and Genital herpes. Other than STDs, causes for Cervicitis include allergies, bacterial imbalance, injury or irritation resulting from pessaries, tampons, hormonal imbalance and even cancer or its treatment (radiation therapy).

Symptoms

Some cases of cervicitis in women can be symptomless. However, in most cases, symptoms are present, and they include:

1. Persistence of gray or white vaginal discharge that may or may not smell

2. Vaginal bleeding under certain conditions eg. in between periods or after sex

3. Pain during intercourse

4. Backache

5. Difficulty or pain during urination

6. In rare cases, fever or pain in the abdomen

Treatment

Cervicitis has no typical form of treatment. Treatment may not be needed in cases where the cause is not a sexually transmitted infection. On suspicion of an infection, the main objectives of the treatment are the removal of the infection and obstructing its spread to the fallopian tubes and uterus, or in case of pregnancy, to the baby.

The medical prescription issued by your doctor would depend on the organism, which is causing the infection. It may include Antibiotics, Antifungal medications or Antiviral medications. Cryosurgery, a process, which freezes the abnormal cells in the cervix using freezing temperatures, may also be performed by your doctor. In severe cases, where there is damage to the cervical cells, your doctor can apply silver nitrate (destroys abnormal cells).

Recommendations from your doctor may also ask your partner to be treated so as to prevent recurrence of the disease and to avoid intercourse as long as the treatment is in process. Treatment is mandatory if you are tested to be HIV positive. Moreover, having cervicitis makes you more prone to receive the virus from a HIV positive partner.

Ayurveda Diet.
The saying "A Person is what he eats" highlights the importance of diet in life. According to Ayurveda Diet plays a vital role in the maintenance of health as well as in the treatment of disease.
The three basic things required for maintaining health as per ayurveda classics are:
• Ahara (Proper Diet)
• Nidra (Proper sleep)
• Brahmacharya (continence)
Thus Diet is considered as the foremost factor for keeping oneself healthy. If diet is taken in proper manner it will maintain health and can even curb diseases but if taken in an improper way it may be the causative factor for disease as Mithya ahara (Improper diet) is said to be one of the causes for the occurrence of diseases in Ayurveda. Thus ayurveda has laid emphasis on taking proper diet and a lot of information about it is available in Ayurvedic classics. By adopting Ayurveda diet plans one can enjoy a healthy body, mind and soul. This section will deal with the various aspects of diet as per Ayurveda.

The Importance of Six Tastes in Ayurvedic Diet :

Ayurveda recognizes six tastes and it's quite important to have all of these 6 tastes in your diet every day. The six tastes are:
Sweet sugar, honey, rice, pasta, milk, etc.
Sour lemons, hard cheese, yogurt, vinegar, etc.
Salty salt, any salty food.
Pungent chili peppers, cayenne, ginger, any hot spice.
Bitter leafy greens, turmeric, lettuce, etc.
Astringent pomegranate, beans, lentils, etc.


These six tastes are listed in the order they are digested in your body.Sweet gets digested first, that's why it's not a good idea to have a dessert at the end of the meal. Salad should be taken at the end of the meal.Cravings are often caused by not having all of the six tastes in your daily diet. Many people often omit the bitter and astringent tastes.When you have something bitter or astringent at the end of a meal, it actually reduces your desire for sweets.
