My friend had sex after her periods and she had a lot of bleeding. Is that a possibility if she is pregnant.

Hi, no pregnancy possible in this case if heavy bleeding seen. Try to confirm when she had sex and bleeding occured also. Then she should be clear about her period onset and delay period.

I got married recently. While trying to have the very first intercourse with my husband, I got pain and the penis entered slightly inside vagina. Now I am very much afraid to have full insertion of penis inside my vaginas but I have become very much anxious to do so. Please suggest a comfortable method of continuing intercourse. Thanks and looking forward to hearing your suggestion.

Sexologist, Panchkula
You got pain while doing the first intercourse. Don't worry, I advice you to do foreplay of 15 to 20 minutes before going for sex. Use some lignocaine gel before sex. For better guidance, consult privately.

Dinner - 6 Healthy Options You Can Opt For!

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Dinner - 6 Healthy Options You Can Opt For!

Ideally, dinner should be the lightest meal of the entire day, so it is important to consider only healthy food items when you are deciding on your dinner plate. Eating a diet where the majority of food is healthy, helps in reducing the risk of various lifestyle disorders such as diabetes and obesity.
If you are unable to decide, worry not. Here are 10 healthy food choices for dinner:

  1. Whole wheat bread: If you are the type of person who prefers white bread, then it is time to rethink your choice. Refined grains do not have high nutritional content when compared to whole grains. Refined grains also cause blood sugar spikes which may lead to obesity and diabetes.
  2. Plain chicken soup: A very delicious treat for long nights in the winter season, chicken soup is one of the healthiest dinner choices you can come across. It is simple to prepare and is light on the digestive system. You may add seasoning such as coriander and parsley to add flavor.
  3. Stir fried vegetables: Stir fried vegetables are healthy as they involve very little oil and time. Stir frying helps the food to retain its nutrients and keeps it calorie free. You may pair it with whole wheat bread or brown rice to add some complex carbohydrates to your diet.
  4. Chicken pasta: Chicken pasta is another dish that is easy to prepare, it contains a healthy mix of protein and complex carbohydrates. Avoid adding butter or oil to keep it light, you may use herbs to add to the flavor.
  5. Sweet potatoes: Sweet potatoes are a good source of carbohydrates that provide a steady stream of energy to the body. You may pair them with whole wheat pita bread and some scrambled eggs to make it more filling.
  6. Brown rice: If you like rice, make sure it is of the brown variety. Brown rice contains complex carbohydrates that do not spike your blood sugar levels. Add some stir fried vegetables and chicken for protein and vitamins. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I am married so I am decide plan to child so get best advice what period I have sex between period time.

Homeopath, Hubli-Dharwad
If you have regular periods them 12-16 days of your periods are best time to get pregnant. How to calculate that is. Suppose your period date is 10. Then add 10+12=22. Means 22.23, 24, 25, 26 are dates when you can get pregnant.

Hello doctor am Swathi 23 years old married I had an intercourse last month and my periods are near now and from past 4 day am getting brown discharge what does it mean?

Gynaecologist, Bhavnagar
When you had intercourse, was it around 14th day of your cycle, then there are chances of pregnancy. Sometimes brown discharge comes evenif pregnancy is there. If there is no chances of pregnancy, then again, brown discharge may come before regular menses so wait and watch for some days.

Is it ok to sleep after lunch in the afternoon for 1-2 hrs. Will I put on weight if I take a 1-2 hrs nap in the afternoon?

Certificate Course in Fitness Management
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Faridabad
Yes, It is absolutely OK and in fact recommended to have a small nap in the afternoon. But the nap should last for 30-45 minutes. And you are advised not to recline too soon after having your Lunch. Give some time for the food to settle in your stomach otherwise it may cause heartburn and acidity.

Is cervical prolapse possible due to heavy weight lifting exercises in Gym for one year? I am virgin.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
No prolapse is not possible of cervix, it happens along with prolapse of uterus in women who have born too many children one after another or have had 1 difficult delivery. Get proper treatment for thrush after getting examination done and do continue with exercise but after listening to your body without setting unreasonable targets or comparison with peers.

Hello, No the ipill will not affect the pregnancy at all, as its progesterone and rather would be supportive in pregnancy.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there is no chance of pregnancy. Take care.
