You should have intercourse at least 2-3 times a week. In midcycle, from day 12-18 you must have frequent intercourse.

I had unprotected sex with my partner. We used the withdrawal method. However, I have missed my periods by 5 days today. I have taken the pregna-strip test twice, and the results are negative. However, I am very concerned. Is there a way I can be sure whether I have become pregnant or not?

I Have Aborted 4 times this may cause any problem to me. Now I want to have kids.

If you had spontaneous abortion then you will have to get yourself evaluated but you have undergone medical termination of pregnancy then be careful. Follow a proper family planning method. Conceive only when you have to continue the pregnancy.

No. Just that it shouldn't be with multiple partners which will, make prone to std or if with single partner the be sure to use condom if partner having std.

You may wait till 8th. If periods do not come, do urine pregnancy test. If negative, repeat it after another 7 days. If still negative, the chance of pregnancy is less and medicines can be taken to get the periods.

I have done the sex with my bf. Nd presently I am very depressed because my dad want that I do the marriage with other person jise wo pasand krte hai or cast me ho so my future husband is very strict .i think that how can i bleed durning sex. Becoz mostly husbnds have no trust .

you can't just bleed like that. you had sex with your boyfriend and you talk about trust? even if you are virgin its not compulsory that you will bleed during first intercourse. you can mimic orgasm but you can not mimic bleeding. it depends on so many factors like hymen status and your physical activity etc., so bleeding is not necessary. but the young boys with all the half baked ideas may not be aware of the fact. so you have to deal with it as it comes, meaning if the subject crops up from your husband take him to any qualified doctor, the issue will be clarified for him.

If you don't want pregnancy and pregnancy is of less then 20wks, then you have two choices. 1. Medical abortion. You can take abortive pills. But they are effective only up to 2 month of pregnancy. And they are not always effective. Sometimes it fails to give result. Then you have to go to a gynecologist for curetting. 2. Directly get curetting done. Mostly this is a complete procedure where there is almost nill chance of failure. So, now, choice is yours.

GASTROENDOSCOPY

What is gastro endoscopy?

Gastroendoscopy is the visualisation of the oesophagus (aka food pipe), stomach, upper part of duodenum through a gastro-endoscopy. It is also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy and upper gi gastro-endoscopy.

Gastroendoscopy is an outpatient procedure which means the patient can go home straight after the completion of this procedure.

What is a gatroendoscope?

Gastroendoscope is a highly sophisticated instrument which is having a shaft of 9mm in diameter. It has got a fibre optic bundles passed through the shaft to transmit the light to the tip and the image to the endoscopist.

The adaptation of endoscopes to video monitoring system has been developed to use in computer chip technology and now it is in routine use in all endoscopy suites.

What are the symptoms which could suggest the requirement of a gastro endoscopy?

  1. Heartburn
  2. Acid regurgitation
  3. Dysphasia (difficulty in deglutition)
  4. Water brash (watering regurgitation in the mouth)
  5. Excessive burping and hiccups
  6. Nausea
  7. Vomiting
  8. Pain in the abdomen
  9. Constant feeling of fullness of the abdomen
  10. Distention of the abdomen


How can gastro endoscopy help in medical diagnosis?

During routine upper gi endoscopy the entire oesophagus, stomach and prioximal duodenum are examined. And it is very useful in making the diagnosis of:
 

  • Oesophageal cancer
  • Oesophageal varices
  • Gastric ulcer
  • Gastric polyp
  • Cancer of the stomach
  • Duodenal ulcer and
  • Any space occupying region in the upper gi system

What do patients need to do for a gastro endoscopy procedure?

Patient has to be fasted for 6 or more hours to ensure an empty stomach. And it is being done by giving a topical anaesthetic. The anaesthetic is applied to the pharynx (throat) to numb the gag reflex. Sedation may be required for the procedure.

You cannot differentiate. The important thing is to get a Gynaecologist review to see that fetus is fine.

Chance of pregnancy is not there if you are taking oral contraceptive pills. However if the period is delayed for more than 10 days, do a pregnancy test and consult doctor for advice.
