Artificial insemination or IUI is a quite simple process where the husband's semen is purified and placed inside the wife's womb. It has a success of about 12-15% per month based on the sperm count. So over a period of 6 months 85% of the women do get pregnant. Cost can be anywhere between 4k to 15k based on your city doctor and hospital.

2-3 minutes is the minimum time. Semen should get deposited inside the vagina. If male infertility is the issue then treatment depends on the cause. On the basis of semen analysis report we can guide you better.

Lybrate-user. Pain during sexual intercourse in females is called vaginismus. This occurs due to inability of vaginal muscles to relax during the act. This could be due to fear and anxiety about the intercourse. You need a personalized counseling session along with your wife, preferably. Also get your wife evaluated and examined by a gynaecologist to rule out any injuries to the vagina. E. G. Tear, which may cause pain and further aggravate vaginismus.

Nipple erection when you touch her her a normal response. If you have sex, she can get pregnant, which can be prevented by use of condom or i-pill asap after the sex. Correct use of condom is important.

Yes, this is called shirodkar stitch, given to close mouth of uterus which remains open - due to repeated abortions/ instrumentations. As a rule the mouth is tightly shut, being elastic tissue it opens only at delivery or periodically during periods to let the collected blood out, closes again, once elasticity is lost, mouth of uterus called cervix cannot regain its normal tight self again, stitch is opened just before delivery to let the baby out. During your 2nd pregnancy, same process will be followed to save you from any mishap like miscarriage / infection to growing baby due to open mouth of uterus.

Vaginal Hygiene - How To Maintain It?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Vaginal Hygiene - How To Maintain It?

Maintaining proper vaginal hygiene is imperative to ward off any sort of STDor STI, even before any sort of irritation, infection or disease occurs. The normal vaginal pH balance helps cater to the growth of useful bacteria. Some useful tips to maintain proper vaginal hygiene can be:

  1. Douching (spraying a mixture of water, baking soda, vinegar or iodine on the vaginal area) is strictly discouraged. It can interfere with the normal pH levels of the vagina and can make the area extremely acidic, which sets the stage for the growth of bacterial infections.

  2. A balanced, healthy, nutritious diet is recommended for a healthy vagina as well as for good reproductive health. Certain fluids such as cranberry juice can help prevent the onset of any yeast infection.

  3. Safe sex should be practised in order to keep harmful bacteria away. Using a condom during a sexual intercourse helps prevent the occurrence of any sort of STI or STD.

  4. Gynaecological check-ups should be done every four months or so to be on the safe side regarding any doubts about unhealthy vagina. Prevention is always better than cure in the long run.

  5. Petroleum jelly should not be used for lubrication during sexual intercourse as such fluids tend to damage the latex in the condom and may even lead to a possible infection.

  6. Clothes should be chosen carefully to keep the vaginal area clean and dry. Cotton underwear is generally the best option in this regard as it can help prevent any bacterial infection by keeping the area clean and dry.

  7. Certain simple sanitary habits such as changing of tampons or sanitary pads every four hour during one’s periods, proper washing of the genital area after relieving the bowels, can go a long way in nurturing the health of the vagina.

  8. Opt for gentle skin care products to wash the vaginal area as that area is extremely sensitive. Avoid scrubbing the vaginal area as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

I have delivered a baby in feb now my baby is 3 months but I have less breast milk so wht to do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Lucknow
How do you know your milk is less? there is only one way to find if the milk is sufficient or not. If the baby passes urine more than six times in 24 hours then consider your milk as sufficient. Normally mother's milk is sufficient upto six months of age.
