No it is not possible to reliably detect as of now. Dont focus too much on it. Since the baby's grandmother is the only person having schizophrenia in the family, his/ her chances of having schizophrenia is anyway very low.

Hi lybrate-user. Even if there was no ejacuation there is a possibility that you could get pregnant as the precum has enough sperms to make a woman pregnant. Please repeat the pregnancy test with early morning sample of urine.

Hi lybrate-user, the normal value on day 2 is usually less than 50pg/ml. Some ivf specialist like it to be less than 30 ng/ml. But it varies with use of some medications in previous cycle and also ultrasound presence of cysts. Postponing the cycle can have multiple reasons and one must not be worried about this as whatever you consultant has done would be in your best interest.

I have some issues of which I am very much concerned about. Me and my fiancee made love with each other two months back on 17 feb and I have got my period on 19 feb and the next period occurred on 18 march and 15th on this month. My period usually last for 4-5 days. But since last 2 month it only lasted for 3 days that too the third day was light. I even tested last month. It was negative. It will be kind enough if you could help me. Is it normal to have a period of 3 days or is there anything serious? I even heard about implantation bleeding. Is it so in my case?

lybrate-user if you are worried for pregnancy then don't worry you are not. As you got periods 2 times after you made love. Secondly sometimes periods get short due to stress. So dis can happen in your case as well. It will be normal in some time. And still if you find it problematic then please visit a gynecologist .she will clear Al your doubts.

I had unprotected Sex with my wife on first 10 days after her periods. She can get pregnant?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Yes very high chance of getting pregnant as it coincides with the ovulation date. If you plan to prevent pregnancy you can use ipill within 5 days, within 1 day to be most effective.

Normal Menstrual Cycles & Lengths In general, a woman can expect to have 11 to 13 menstrual periods every year. That is, if you have a regular menstrual cycle that runs like clockwork, month after month. An average period can last anywhere from three to five days; it can be shorter or longer than this, but it’s typically no longer than 7 days or a week. A textbook menstrual cycle is 28 days (from one period to the next; this is the average length of a period or menstrual cycle). However, it is very common for adult women to have menstrual cycles that range anywhere 21 to 35 days. Teenagers – keep in mind that the first couple of years after your period starts, it’s normal to have long cycles (longer than 35 days). In adolescents and teenagers, a menstrual cycle can range anywhere between 21 and 45 days and still be considered normal. there are several reasons for delayed menstruatuion like hormonal imbalances pcod thyroid severe stress depression apeetite and many other conditions........... BROWN DISCHARGE?: In the vast majority of cases, a brown vaginal discharge is nothing to worry about. ... Caused by an enlargement of the ovaries, PCOS can cause brown period blood or brown spotting before period bleeding occurs because a small amount of fluid is leaked form the follicles of the ovary sometime during the cycle. CERVICAL POLYPS.......... BIRTH CONTROL PILLS......... PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE CHLAMYDIA GONORRHEA......... BUT6 MOST OF THE TIMES BROWN DISCHARGE IS NORMAL..... NO NEEED TO WORRY..................

My age is 19 years female and 62 kg with 5 foot 2 inch height. I have dark circles and feel sunken my eyes sometimes. I feel tired if I work a little bit more aur be sitted for long hours and have back ache due to this. I sleep more than 9 hrs sometimes like 2 days in week for 12 hrs. I also feel anxiety and sadness sometimes without reason. I want to know that extra sleeping is due to obesity or anaemia or depression?

Extra sleeping could be due to depression.I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet.Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet.Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs always.keep your weight normal as compared to your height.Do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning.This will help you in your problem.

Premature Labour - Things That Can Cause It!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Premature Labour - Things That Can Cause It!

The usage of “9 months” with pregnancy is almost universal. However, it is not always that all women go through the entire 9 months with the baby. Most often, delivery happens during the 37th to 40th weeks. This allows for the complete growth of the baby within the mother’s womb. When delivery happens before the 37th week, it is known as preterm delivery or premature labour. These babies may not be completely formed and may have temporary or long-term difficulties after birth.

There are many reasons which can induce premature labour, and while some are preventable, some may be inevitable.

  1. Smoking: One of the first things to do when planning a pregnancy or as soon as you realise you are pregnant is to quit smoking. It is way too damaging for the mother and the baby within.
  2. Alcohol consumption or street drug usage: These again can cause not just premature labour but also developmental abnormalities.
  3. Multiple pregnancy: Women pregnant with twins or multiples often have premature labour.
  4. Health problems: Medical conditions like hypertension, diabetes, infections, etc.
  5. Abnormalities: Developmental abnormalities in the newborn like Down’s syndrome, chromosomal abnormalities, etc.
  6. Weight: Being either obese or underweight can cause premature labour.
  7. Prenatal care: While preparing for pregnancy or as soon as you confirm it, ensure you put yourself in the hands of a good gynaecologist. This will ensure you (and your baby) get the required care.
  8. Less gap: Reduced gap between subsequent pregnancies can also induce premature labour.

Warning signs of premature labour

In some women, the doctor might be able to predict the chances of a premature labour and give enough suggestions to look out for warning signs. This will help the woman to be mentally prepared when it is time.
A low backache, which is constant and does not go with usual relief measures.

  1. Frequent pelvic contractions (about every 10 minutes)
  2. Vaginal leaking (fluid or bleeding)
  3. General ill-feeling with symptoms of nausea, cramps, and vomiting/diarrhoea.
  4. Inability to hold down fluids for a full day
  5. Abdominal cramps, similar to a period
  6. Pelvic pressure, a feeling of the baby descending down

What to do? 

As mentioned earlier, if your doctor had warned you of the chances of a preterm labour, watch out for them after 35 weeks.

  • With any of the above symptom, do not indulge in any activity and rest on the left side for a while.
  • Drink about 2 to 3 glasses of juice or plain water.
  • If the symptoms get better, continue to rest for the day.
  • If they do not, call the doctor. Usually, the doctor will ask you to come to the clinic.
  • In some cases, the baby might be delivered and require neonatal care for some days (to weeks) depending on development and symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hello, no, it is not accurate simply because urine pregnancy test is sensitive only after 8 days post missed periods. However as you have taken ipill, so the withdrawal bleed should ideally start in next 7-10 days, so be patient. If in hurry, then please get a serum beta hcg test done to get conclusive results as on date.
