one thing for sure is that there was interval growth despite of discharge so I think there is probability of appearance of heartbeat. it appears around 6 weeks in transvaginal scan. may be in your case there was delay in ovulation so heartbeat may appear late .Baby s heartbeat may appear in a week in your case but to avoid unnecessary anxiety they might have said 2 weeks. regarding bleeding that may be due to hormones. If it still persists even later in pregnancy then chances of prematurity are there.

Helo lybrate-user maybe be on scan he might have seen abembryonic pregnancy. In this the pregnancy sac is formed but the foetus is not visible. So get the scan repeated after 7 to 10 days. If the picture is same as before then cleaning has to be done. After that both husband and you must start folic acid 5 mg daily for 6 mths.

You need to have a thorough checkup from a gynecologist. You may have to undergo ultra sound scanning and couple of blood test mainly hormonal to find ou the reason for your period problem and also for the facial hair growth, facial hair growth per say can be treated with laser hair reduction using diode laser or long pulse nd: yag laser by a qualified dermatologist. Needs multiple session of treatment.

Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts on their ovaries. That is why it is called polycystic ovary syndrome. The cysts are not harmful but lead to hormone imbalances. Early diagnosis and treatment can help control the symptoms and prevent long-term problems. Women must be able to make testosterone, a male hormone, as without it they could not produce oestrogen. Fact: Polycystic ovaries do not cause pain. Pain in the ovary could be from ovulation or from a cyst, which should usually clear up in time. Myth: Scalp hair loss is usually due to PCOS. No one knows exactly what causes PCOS, although evidence suggests a definite genetic link to the disorder. Many women with PCOS will have polycystic ovaries, but it is possible to be diagnosed with the syndrome without this sign, and not all women with polycystic-appearing ovaries will have PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Infertility is one of the most common PCOS symptoms. Homeopathic remedies for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS. Most women dread the thought of menses or periods, but irregularities and unusual changes in the menstrual cycle can be a nightmare. ... It is a syndrome that affects women in the reproductive age group and is one of the leading causes of female infertility.

Hello, if you are still breast feeding your child then menses are likely to be regular due to high prolactin levels, so start weaning your child and if pregnancy is to be avoided use oral contraceptive pills.

Please answer.
If your wifes periods are regular and if it is a28 to 30 days cycle then the fertile period is from 10 to 18 day of her menses the first day is counted as the day her menses start. On other days there are minimal chances of pregnancy .However it is always better to use some form of contraception.

Whether you need removal or not, depends on the size and nature of the cysts. Also we need to know other factors related to fertility before taking decision for the operation.

Hiii doctor I want to ask you that is groundnut n radish beneficial for 7.5 months pregnant lady.
Groundnuts and Radish are a must during pregnancy Benefitss of Groundnutss during pregnancy • Groundnuts are rich vitamins and contain at least 13 different types of vitamins that include Vitamin A, B, C and E. along with this, groundnuts are also rich in 26 essential minerals like calcium, iron, zinc, boron, etc. These help in brain function and development and also help to maintain strong bones. • It is recommended that growing children, expecting women and nursing mothers consume roasted groundnuts with jaggery and goat’s milk. It is said to provide resistance and immunity against dangerous infections like hepatitis and tuberculosis. • Groundnuts are rich in anti-oxidants and a chemical called resveratrol. These help in reducing the risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases, cancer risk and also help in anti-ageing, thus, keeping the body young and fit. • They are composed of adequate levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids especially oleic acid which helps to lower the LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good cholesterol” level in the blood. This in return prevents coronary artery disease and strokes by taking care of the healthy blood lipid profile. • Groundnuts contain amino acids and are a good source of dietary protein, which is essential for growth and development. • Peanuts have high content of poly-phenolic antioxidants, primarily p-coumaric acid which reduces the risk of stomach cancer by preventing the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines in the stomach. • Boiling the peanuts for consumption is known to enhance the antioxidant concentration, such as biochanin-A and genistein. • Groundnuts are packed with B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates, which contribute towards brain health and stimulate blood flow to the brain. • It is said that a handful of groundnuts per day, offers enough levels of phenolic anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins, and protein recommended by doctors. • Peanuts contain dietary fiber which enhances digestion Benefits of Radish during Pregnancy Just a single serving of radishes a day can provide your body many important nutrients your developing baby needs. Radish is a rich source of calcium. Calcium is an important nutrient you need to have during pregnancy as it aids the development of the baby’s bones and muscles.Radishes are a storehouse of folic acid, which is a vital nutrient for pregnant women. Adequate folic acid levels in the body protect your baby against any birth defects. In addition to that, radishes also contain potassium, iron and vitamin C, which can be extremely beneficial for an expecting mom.
