If you are wooried about sexually transmitted infections I should advise you that condoms do not provide 100% protection. You can get yourself examined by a urologist who can order an infection screening. If you are worried about unwanted pregnancy for her please use a emergency contraceptive pill if within 72 hours of sex.

Hi I Was on Novelon pill pack from june. Missed second last pill of june doubled up with the last took a break of 6 days. On which had menses. Started new pack from july 8th. Had intercourse on 9th condom was their but its been used thrice but it did not break. This was first intercourse and the second was one 14th july it was the last one very well protected. Missed 21st july pill doubled up on 22nd july had a very light bleeding on 22nd july (do not know implantation or breakthrough bleeding due to missing pills) was too stressed out all the time so felt slightly nauseated. Pill pack ended on 28th july bleeding from 1-6 aug. No pills or intercourse after withdrawal bleed. Period was due on 1st sept and as it did not came till 8th. Did a usg on 8th shows marginally bulky anteverted uterus with normal myometrial echo texture, cervix normal, no collection seen in pod, no sol seen, endometrial cavity empty, ureter not dilated, kidney normal. Bulky ovaries with mildly increase stromal echogenicity, and tiny follicles arranged peripherally. Beta hcg on the same day (10 weeks from first and 9 weeks from Last intercourse) was 0.11 Doctor prescribed tab deviry for 5 days 2 doses each day. But I got my period just after 1 dose. It was heavy with clots and continued from 11-16th sept. Before periods breast was sore and stomach had become bulky but after periods it has all gone. I was doing a lot of exercise lately like crunches leg rise etc. Abd suddenly as I woke up on 21st sept (12 weeks from first and 11 weeks from last intercourse) I felt my pubic bone which I did not felt earlier and it was hard on the middle and on the right side. I got scared and did a usg. Report shows everything normal but ovaries bulky with pcod. Uterus also normal. Can I still be pregnant if I got my periods twice in the consecutive months with multiple negative hpt at 4,5,6,7,8,11,12 weeks with first morning urine and my beta hcg 0.11 and usg shows only pcod? Why can I feel my pelvic bone. I was 72 kgs earlier now I am weighing 68 kgs. Lost 4 kgs can these be the reason I cn fl my pelvic bone? Or is it due to pregnancy? Or it can be due to exercise? Please help as I dnt want to get pregnant right at the moment. And its almost 3 months and still nothing has been shown but why m I fln a hardness in that area. Firstly I thought uterus but the person doing usg told that my uterus is normal. Is this due oestitis pubis? M doing lot of exercises these days can it be just because of that. The area above my pubic bone is not that hard. But I feel pain while touching the front pubic bone. Is their any minute risk of pregnancy even if my last intercourse was 3 months before with multiple negative hpt, negative blood test and usg only showing pcod. M feeling gassy throughout past three months. Is it due to stress?

Rectal Bleeding

Homeopath,
Rectal Bleeding

The common causes of rectal bleeding 
- Anal fissure
- Hemorrhoids

- Diverticulosis
- Colon cancer and polyps
- Colonic polyp removal
- Angiodysplasias
- Colitis
- Proctitis
- Meckel's diverticula
- Uc crohn

Associated symptom:

Bleeding from your colon (large intestine) or rectum will be bright red
But it may only be from an anal fissure (tear) or internal hemorrhoid 

If you have pain in your rectum or anus upon defecating, then it’s likely you have a fissure that’s getting torn open by the bowel movement, causing bloody stools.

If you don’t have any pain (or only mild pain) but find yourself straining to have even a soft bowel movement - or if you have your bowel movement and there’s no blood in the stool, but at the end there’s half a teaspoon to a couple tablespoons of blood - it’s likely you have an internal hemorrhoid. 
Unlike external hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids rarely hurt. 
With internal hemorrhoids, you may also feel a pressure in your rectum, followed by a gush of blood. You may also feel a" popping" sensation before the blood appears.
Rectal bleeding also may be seen with bleeding that is coming from higher in the instestinal tract, from the stomach, duodenum, or small intestine.
Rectal bleeding may not be painful; however, other symptoms that may accompany rectal bleeding are diarrhea, and abdominal cramps due to the blood in the stool.

Diagnosis of cause:

Origin of rectal bleeding is determined by history and physical examination, anoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, radionuclide scans, visceral angiograms, flexible endoscopy or capsule endoscopy of the small intestine, and blood tests.

Managed

Rectal bleeding is managed first by correcting the low blood volume and anemia if present with blood transfusions and then, determining the site and cause of the bleeding, stopping the bleeding, and preventing future rebleeding.

Prevention

Rectal bleeding can be prevented if the cause of the bleeding can be found and definitively treated, for example, by removing the bleeding polyp or tumor.

During pregnancy intercourse is how much right & wrong. What is advantage & disadvantage?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Well it depends how high you are in pregnancy (how many months pregnant). Sex in general is absolutely fine — you are not going to poke your fetus, and for most women, there’s no reason not to twist the sheets throughout the trimesters. That’s especially true if your due date has come and gone. Sperm is rich in hormones called prostaglandins, which can actually stimulate the uterus to contract.

Hello Tapas, The female cycles are divided into three phases. In females with normal duration of the cycle, a process called "Ovulation" happens on the 14th day. In this process, the egg is ruptured from the ovary and enters the uterus, ready to be fertilized. In a normal cycle of 28 days, the ovulation happens on the 14th day. But since the duration of the cycle varies from female to female and even in the same female from month to month, 10th day to 18th day of the cycle are considered as the "dangerous period" of the cycle as the chances of pregnancy during this period is the highest. You can plan accordingly. If however your wifes, cycles are irregular, then you can consult me and I can help you with when is the"dangerous period" in her cycles.

The other day I was fooling with my girl friend and I penetrated her for a few seconds. However there was no ejaculation. There may have been some pre cum on my penis though. My girlfriend was on the 4th day of her period and her cycles are generally 32-33 day in length. I heard from various internet sources that pre cum contains sperm which can remain alive for around 5 days inside the vaginal canal and that it is possible for ovulation to happen just as ones period ends. So is there any chance of there being a pregnancy fear. Please do reply. I have been very tensed.

Aniket...Sexual intercourse on the fourth day of cycle usually does not cause pregnancy. However if you want to be sure, get a urine pregnancy test done in case she misses a scheduled period. If you dont wish to wait till then, consult a gynecologist and get some blood investigations to rule out pregnancy done urgently

If the menses is regular then the ovulation date would be on the 14th day from the beginning of the flow of menses. So you can have contact from 11th to 17th day daily.

At any stage of development, surgical removal of an ectopic growth and/or the fallopian tube section where it has implanted is the fastest treatment for ectopic pregnancy. Surgery may be your only treatment option if you have internal bleeding. When possible, surgery is done through a small incision using laparoscopy.
