No need to worry Jyothi, As you have taken the pill, bleeding this time could be little heavy and may last little longer. Absolutely nothing to worry. Wait for few days, every thing will be normal

What precautions should be taken by pcos patients? What should be avoided in case of PCOD?

What precautions should be taken by pcos patients? What should be avoided in case of PCOD?
Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

Is there any time for intercourse means after periods how long I should do intercourse for pregnancy.
You should do intercouse in your fetrility period which is usually from 11-17 days before from your last mensturation period .it is called as ovulution period. You can check it either by using a ovulatory kit which will detect ups and down of your hormones and you can also check it by yourself as cautious about your increase in basal body temperature ,increase consistency of your vaginal secretions. Perform sex almost daily in this period to conceive.

Hi, The above said kit is effective only when taken before 6 weeks of pregnancy. With 3 months gestation period, you will have to undergo MTP for which you need to consult a good obstetrician and gynaecologist at the earliest.

What precautions need to be take care during pregnancy like food, exercise, sex etc.
During pregnancy, I advice you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily to detoxify body. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Do meditation for mental strength daily. Take milk and milk products also. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs always. You can have sex during pregnancy if the pregnancy is normal and there are no complications in pregnancy.

Hello, This could be an ovulation bleed or an implantation bleed. You may differentiate with a serum beta hcg test. If the test is positive then you are pregnant.

Hello lybrate User- Oily skin and pimples in this age suggest of improper liver functioning which happens due improper food intake and schedule. - Avoid spicy, sour, salty foods, fast foods, fried foods and non-vegetarian diet. - Go to bed before 10 pm and wake up before 6: 30 am and go for running. - Start herbal blood purifiers. - Your problem will be solved in few weeks.

Can someone grow tall after their menstrual cycle starts? If yes then by how many inches?
There are no particular rules. Basically it is dependent upon the genes which are inherited from the parents. Diet and exercise are other very important factors that can play a big role. So.one can reach the potential by adapting a healthy lifestyle.

Hi. This could be an anovulatory cycle where you may not have produced an egg. It does not matter. You can go for a mild stimulation and follicular study next cycle and try eithher naturally or with IUI if your tubes are fine. Best wishes.

First thing is to do evaluation of your husband’s sperm count. If its normal than you should get your examination, lab reports and ultrasound. If everything is normal than keep relation during fertile days. Usually fertile days are between 12 and 18 days of your normal menstrual cycle. Remaining days are relatively infertile. Still if you do not get result than should do IUI treatment.

If you have bled for 2 to 4 days changing at least 2 pads in a day, the possibility of pregnancy is very less. However if the bleeding is lighter then you may take a urine pregnancy test at home to confirm or rule out pregnancy.

All About Lupron IVF Calendar

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
All About Lupron IVF Calendar

Hormones agonists (receptor activating chemicals) that release gonadotropin hormones produced by the pituitary gland (GnRH) act quickly to remove luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) from the pituitary gland. Lupron is a kind of GnRH agonist that is used to start the IVF cycle, especially if your ovaries need controlled stimulation. 

Lupron is injected intramuscularly. Lupron injections are given to women who undergo the gonadotrophin therapy, which stimulates the ovaries. Lupron mimics the structure of the GnRH, so when it is injected, it triggers the production of LH and FSH. When the pituitary gland realises the difference between GnRH and Lupron, it dramatically reduces the biological production of both the follicle stimulating and luteinizing hormone. This condition is called the pituitary down regulation and this continues as long as the Lupron is being administered. Lupron slowly, but steadily, lowers the production of estrogen.

The reason for administering Lupron is to stop premature escalation of LH. Women who are older and resistant to ovarian stimulation or who have poor ovarian reserves (the capacity to produce eggs) are usually given the Lupron therapy. Too much of the luteinizing hormone can harm the follicular production, which in turn damages the quality of egg production and later, embryo development. Lupron is injected to stop the premature luteinisation of the follicles, and it is stopped before the egg retrieval procedure.

The Lupron IVF Calendar:
To help explain the treatment, a hypothetical menstrual cycle of 28 days is taken:

  1. Days 1-7: Your menstrual cycle begins and the Lupron treatment starts (you are usually given Lupron injections)
  2. Day 8: Your periods start and the Lupron treatment continues
  3. Day 9: FSH injections are started while you are still on the Lupron injection; a blood test and ultrasound is scheduled today as well
  4. Day 10-13: The FSH and Lupron are administered together for the next seven days
  5. Day 14-15: A blood test and ultrasound is scheduled again on the fourteenth day
  6. Day 16: This will be the last day of your FSH and Lupron treatment; another blood test and ultrasound will be scheduled and HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin) injection will be administered which causes normal ovulation
  7. Day 18: On this day, the egg retrieval procedure is done. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
