Hello, Please get a urine pregnancy test done and rule out pregnancy. Ideally you should have bled after 7-10 days post unwanted 72 intake so its important to rule out pregnancy.

Breast Enhancer Bra– First in My list is a breast enhancing bra of course. Yes, right after you wear it, the look is that of a fuller figure! Need I explain more? Detailed Necklines– Wear detailed neck lines to give an optical illusion. Lace, gathering, smocking, ruching, pleats, twists, ruffles and jewels all divert attention from your bust and make it look well defined and appropriate! High up the Neck! High necklines suit you much better than low necks… obviously! Low necklines reveals out what you are trying to hide! Bold Colors and Patterns– Wear bold and bright colors and prints on the top. Keep your lowers subdued. If you invert this detail, it will make your breasts look smaller! Resort to Makeup– If you want to wear cleavage revealing clothes, make use of make up! Use darker shade of foundation to make your breasts appear fuller.

Once she misses her periods you can do the pregnancy test after about four or five days but symptoms you are indicating are more of pregnancy it is better to confirm it early with ultrasound lower abdomen to find the status of uterus if you don't want to continue the pregnancy.

Hello lybrate-user! normally by 8 weeks metal pole and metal heart should be seen on USG. But in case or previous irregular periods, your pregnancy may be less than expected weeks. Take rest. Repeat USG after 7-10 days. Avoid intercourse. Also you'll need some hormonal medicines for which you should visit an obstetrician. All the best and take care!

You have to increase thyronorm to 100 mcg and improve health. Test your thyroid antibodies also and tell confidentially by asking privately. Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) The description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) Your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) It is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) For personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

I had sex with my girlfriend and she took unwanted 72 within 20 hours, we had sex again after 24 hours of taking the contraceptive pill, so my question is that should she need to take another pill or the unwanted 72 given after the first intercourse is sufficient?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Basically the drug is a high dose hormone which delays ovulation by a couple of days. So it may be effective for 2 days at most. It is safer to repeat it. But this cannot be continued indefinitely. It will cause irregular bleeding or can delay the next cycle. If taken early in the cycle within the first 10-12 days, it is most protective. If taken around 14-16th day, it may not stop an imminent ovulation. After 20th day, it may not be necessary as the egg has already burst and dried up. But all this is subject to much chronological variation, as the cycle days alter frequently from month to month. To answer your question, if she is at mid cycle or before she needs to repeat it. If she is beyond 20th day, the choice is yours since it may have no effect, rather it can cause period problems.

First of all = you do not have sugar (diabetes) secondly = metformin was given to you for pcod as metformin is also meant for insulin resistance *(which in later stage leads to diabetes) all the symptoms that happened to you were because of low blood sugar. It happened with metformin so you are advised not to take it. You don't need it! please do not be tense- eat well and forget metformin- you will be ok.

A little bit of extra spice has never really known to harm anybody. Thus, to enhance the thrill and the excitement of your life in bed, there are an entire range of products available in the markets. One need not approach these products as a competition but rather a complimenting aid to your performance in bed. Some of the most popular sex toys promise heightened pleasure and endow you with some of the best of those intimate memories. Kinder on your calorie counts without compromising on your moments of ecstasy, sex toys bring an extra dose of delight to your bedroom. Effective for either sex, there are multiple options that you may surf through and cull out the best for your significant other.
For her:

Magic wand rechargeable: for an orgasm on the go, this is the perfect choice. This does not tether you to the wall, but instead enables you to navigate around freely. The vibrations you feel are not too stark, but just the right degree and for further stimulation, you may attach the removable head. There is an additional plug in option in case the device runs out of charge.
Womanizer: this imparts arguably the best oral stimulation that you could have asked for. Creating a seal around your clitoris, this device gently sucks and massages you to give you a feeling that might just surpass the real standards. While it has an appearance of an epilator, make no mistake that this is the perfect cunnilingus machine for you.
Iris: designed to appease the aesthetic sensibilities of a woman, iris is perhaps the best looking masturbating aid that you can get yourself. The flowery design and the crafty curves feel brilliant inside your vagina. It is nine inch long and thus leaves you with no scope of complaint regarding the length.

For him:

Male masturbators: usually for self stimulation, men themselves come'handy. But why settle for the simple when with these sleeves, you can get the feel of the real contours and the ridges? these male masturbators sometimes act as girth enhancers while intensifying your hard-on.
Prostate massager: made of firm plastic material, these slender prostate massagers are great for anal stimulation. Designed to titillate your g spot, this can bring some of the most exhilarating sensations.
