My wife is 28 weeks pregnant. In her 28th week 3d sonography they have seen Amniotic band along left lateral gestational age with placental component obliquely of size 7.5,2.2 cms. (AP). But in her 18 week 2D sonography no such thing was mentioned. Even in her 12 week anamol scan, which was 3D, no such band was observed. Growth and everything is normal. What are future risk to the baby till delivery.

Hello, lybrate-user, its early to form any opinion in this regard, position, may change as per the movement of the baby. She is in third trimester, will carry two three sonography & tests more which will decide the actual, position. Moreover, there is nothing to worry about, as such. Keep in touch with your gynae. In this connection. Enjoy, the present situation & remain stressfree, both of u, please. Your, feedback is solicited, please tk care.

I had sex on 5th of October. He just inserted for 2 minutes as we realized that we were not doing it safely so he take it outside and after doing hand job he ejaculated outside. My estimated periods date was on 10th of October but they missed and till now they have not came. So for confirmation I had Beta HCG test today and report comes to be 0.345miU/ml. So am I pregnant or not?

With this beta HCG level and sex just five days before the expected periods, there should be no chances of pregnancy but even few drops of semen inside vagina during fertile days can cause pregnancy

Irregular Periods - What Are The Causes Behind It?

Irregular Periods - What Are The Causes Behind It?

Irregularity in the menstrual cycle is one of the most common issues to be fixed since the hormones responsible for the menstrual cycle is affected by several factors and systems of the body. According to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2011, it came to the fore that frequent missing of periods over an extended period is a common problem affecting over 5 percent of women at any given time. But what’s more important is that most women suffer from irregular periods all through the reproductive span of their life.

LH (Luteinizing Hormone) and FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) produced by pituitary gland stimulate the ovaries to produce estrogen and progesterone and will cause the release of the egg. When there are fluctuations in LH, FSH, estrogen, and progesterone, the menstruation cycle gets irregular. For successful treatment of irregular periods, it is crucial to determine the cause. A few predominant causes of irregular periods are:

  1. High levels of stress: When you are stressed out for a long time, your body learns to save energy by stopping ovulation. If you experience a traumatic event or you undergo excessive day to day stress, it can suddenly cause the adrenals to work hard which can interrupt the production of estrogen, thyroid hormones, and other reproductive hormones. Restrictive eating and over-exercising can also lead to hypothalamic amenorrhea, a condition wherein the menstruation stops for several months altogether.
  2. Poor diet: If your daily diet lacks antioxidants, vitamins, protein, and minerals, then there could be an adverse effect on the thyroid levels and the adrenal glands. Fried and processed foods along with sugary items can raise the adrenal fatigue and cortisol which, in turn, hinders the functionality of other necessary hormones. If you are suffering from irregular periods, you should take foods rich in antioxidants, proteins, and antioxidants.
  3. Extreme loss of weight: When the body mass index or BMI reaches below 18, you will start missing your periods due to low body fat. Body fat is crucial for creating estrogen, and lack of this hormone also causes issues such as anorexia and bulimia. But it is important to note here that not all women suffering from irregular periods are underweight.
  4. Thyroid disorders: The fluctuations of thyroid hormones often cause an irregularity of periods. According to some experts, thyroid problems are one of the leading causes of irregular menstruation. Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause symptoms like alterations in cortisol and estrogen levels.
  5. Food allergies: If you are sensitive to gluten or have celiac disease which has remained undiagnosed, it can cast an impact on the hormone levels. As these conditions may cause nutrient deficiencies, it can affect the gut health and add stress to the adrenal glands. As a result, all these together disrupt the secretion of sex hormones and cause irregular menstruation.

Several treatments are available to treat the causes that would slowly bring back your menstruation cycle to normal.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, Vetocal Z is Calcium with Vitamin D, which is very important for you and the baby. Yes, it can sometimes cause acidity. But I doubt that it is the cause for the loose motions. The tablet or the loose motions will not affect the baby in any way. Have plenty of liquids, water, tender coconut, buttermilk etc You can ask for change of brand if the said tablet is causing too much acidity. But acidity occurs due to pregnancy also. Have bland food for few days, that will help. Take care, and enjoy the pregnancy

U should get a scan done. Irregular menses might persist for few months after delivery but normalise within 6-8 months. You need a check up with your doctor.

The most fertile period of a cycle is mid-cycle if your wife has regular 28 days periods. So if you have sex from 9 days of starting a period for another 9 days or so you stand the maximum chance of conceiving.
