My cousin is 34 year old and having vaginal bleeding from 27 june 2015. Till now even had got down twice. Taken ipill on 6 june 2015. Hcg level is 61 on 28 july 2015. Tv ultrasound normal, does not show any pregnancy.

Hcg level 61 is abnormal. So, repeat hcg every 48 hours until it rises to more than 1500 (when you should do tvs) or until it falls below 15 (when it means spontaneous resolution of pregnancy).

Smart Things to do When You are Facing an Issue in Life

Smart Things to do When You are Facing an Issue in Life

We all have issues in life which we want to resolve and feel happy and light again. What matters here is knowing how to skillfully deal with the problem rather than building up fears and anxiety around it.

Here are the two basic but extremely effective tactics to use to solve the issue before we let it take a larger form.

Write the issue down- we tend to worry about the issue nonstop, even before sleeping. We want to get out of the situation but we don't know how. We even tend to worry about it a bit too much and out of helplessness, not knowing what to do, go into these vicious circles where it gets a little tough to come out of. We often tend to push painful emotions away, because we don't want to be in that situation, it hurts! we want to push it away as hard as possible and as soon as possible.

But just wait! take a step back and get to know what exactly you are worrying about. What is going on in the first place? you might first start from a very superficial level. Ex- I just broke up with my boyfriend. But try to do some free flow writing about the issue. Here are a few questions to help you start looking at the issue at a deeper level.

    What is going on?
    How are you feeling about it?
    What hurt you the most?
    Why do you think all this is happening? where do you think it all started from?
    Which need of yours was being satisfied that has been cut off now? example: a girl who has recently experienced a break up says" what truly scares me about my break up is that I am scared to be independent; I need someone constantly supporting me"
    How much were you truly responsible for what has happened and how much were others and other environmental factors contributing to the issue.


These are just few questions to get you started to explore the issue. Write whatever you feel like and whatever comes to your mind. Free flow writing about the issue will automatically lead you into different and interesting areas which you might not have even explored before. Try not being resistant to the idea of writing and approach it with a curious attitude.

    Brainstorm- now that you have a better understanding about the issue, where it is probably coming from, what you should probably look at to resolve it, and also now that you feel less burdened, since it is all out on those papers, it is time to brainstorm the solution!


Remember here that every pain or suffering is temporary. There is always a way to make it better.

Pick up on the cues your mind has given you about how to resolve the issue or at least which areas to focus on, while writing down your issue. Write down the probable options you have to resolve your issue. For example- a worked up business man realizes that he is experiencing a burn out since he has stopped gyming. He realized this while addressing the question, where did it all start from. Now he realizes that gyming was extremely crucial to de-stress and resolves to make time for it again.

Reflecting on what worked for you earlier, or what helped you feel better earlier, would give you great insights into what you should probably do now.

The girl who broke up realizes that her main need was to have some constant support. Upon brainstorming if there were other ways this need can be fulfilled, she has realized that she has great friends and a lovely sister whom she can talk to, she also sees it as an opportunity to grow herself into a strong independent women.


    Utilizing your resources to the fullest- when you brainstorm alternatives of what you should probably do, you will see that they lead you to very interesting resources. It is practically impossible to solve an issue if we don't have enough information and the right resources. Few of the easily available but unbelievably effective resources which have a large impact when implemented are listed below, in case they haven't struck you till now. These are such simple resources we often tend to overlook or underestimate.

    Parents- just spending some time around them might make a huge difference to the way you are feeling. They are almost readily available for us, but we tend to just ignore it and choose to get locked away in our rooms and go on a ride again with our negative emotions. Instead just step towards them!
    Friends- we are scared of looking vulnerable if we share our problems with our friends. We also tend to disguise the problem or give bits and pieces of it, because we feel telling what exactly is going on might make us look really vulnerable. All these could just be our assumptions. If these friends are close, exposing the vulnerable you, could even get you closer, and you can take a sigh of relief to finally put it out of you.
    Hobbies- often people say, if my situation is better only then I can go and do what I like! it doesn't quite work that way. Hobbies help you de-stress by channeling your negative energy and replenishing you with positive energy, they empower you to face the issue. This is what is going to save you big time! simple things like watering the plants, sketching what is going on in your head or something creative, just coloring, etc. Prove to be great ways to help yourself feel better.
    Social communities- it is great to be out there with like-minded people, or with people who might be experiencing the same thing as you. Just push yourself with that one first step and you just might be sorted!
    Don't be afraid to seek out for help- everyone faces issues, everyone does! but a proactive person is the one who will be able to pull him/herself out of it and feel good and confident again. Prolonging things might make the pain turn into suffering. Seek help from a psychologist/ counselor when you need it. It is a great space to explore yourself and be mentally fit.


These are just few of the resources mentioned here. Now when you grab your pen and paper I am sure you will come up with a great list! figure out which resources work for you and keep your resource box ready to rescue you!

It is quite possible. As long as you're an appropriate candidate for a vaginal birth after a cesarean, also known as a vbac, there's a good chance you'll succeed. Of course, your chances of success are higher if the reason for your prior c-section isn't likely to be an issue this time around. For example, a woman who has already had an easy vaginal delivery and then had a c-section when her next baby was breech is much more likely to have a successful vbac than one who had a c-section after being fully dilated and pushing for three hours with her first baby who was small and properly positioned.

This may be due to some transient cause at this time, if it occurs frequently or for long time than we need some diagnosis and investigation. At this time Homeopathic Medicine - Pulsatilla 30 thrice daily for 7 days will help you (when taken under Expert Homeopathic Consultant supervision.) You can also consult me in private Lybrate Chat.

You should go for urine pregnancy test. If its negative, then there is nothing to worry. If you are feeding your child then there are possibilities of delaying of menstruation.

Hi, I am considering a girl for marriage. She is on the slim side. She does not specifically eat dessert, but likes her tea or coffee to be sweet (3-4 sachets of sugar). She has never paid heed to this fact. However, she mentioned casually that she has a high BMR. However, no doctor had told it to her. My question is very simple, is a high BMR good or bad? Will it add to complications to our marriage.

Your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is an estimate of how many calories you'd burn if you were to do nothing but rest for 24 hours. It represents the minimum amount of energy needed to keep your body functioning, including breathing and keeping your heart beating. As you mentioned she is on the slim side and not fat despite of having too much sugar in tea ,which means her BMR is high, as casually said by her.

Hello, according to your history, you can put a small pillow under buttocks during intercourse and don't get up for at least half an hour after the intercourse. Your weight is on higher side. Try to reduce your weight also (about 5 kgs). Make it a point that you are certainly with your husband during middle of the menstrual cycle. Do it for 3 months, and you should get pregnant.

The first day of bleeding is considered day one of the menstrual cycle. In this safe period calculator, days 1 to 7 and day 21 to rest of the cycle is calculated as" safe period" or" safe days" for individuals with regular 26-32 days cycles.

Reasons You Can't Get Pregnant - Plus A Fertility Checklist

Reasons You Can't Get Pregnant - Plus A Fertility Checklist

Here's a list of the most common reasons women can't get pregnant, plus a fertility checklist. The reasons for not getting pregnant range from azoospermia (no sperm) to irregular periods. These male and female fertility checklists will help you decide if you should see a doctor or infertility specialist.

Think about making lifestyle changes if you can't get pregnant. 'Couples who have sought specialist help and have been diagnosed with 'unexplained fertility' may find that making certain lifestyle changes can assist in conception,' writes Michael Dooley in Fit for Fertility. 'These fertility checklists might be useful.'

Why Can't You Get Pregnant?

The Fit for Fertility Checklist is made up of four individual checklists, for the egg, the sperm, conception, and general male and female fertility problems.

Fertility Checklist #1: The Egg (Female Fertility)

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Are you having irregular, short (less than 21 days) or long (greater than 34 days) periods?

2. Do you bleed between your periods?

3. Are you overweight (with a body-mass index greater than 25)?

4. Are you underweight (with a body mass index under 18.5)?

5. Do you exercise excessively?

6. Have you had treatment for cancer?

7. Are you being treated for depression?

8. Do you have diabetes?

9. Have you ever had thyroid problems?

10. Have you stopped having periods?

Fertility Checklist #2: The Sperm (Male Fertility)

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Have you had an operation on your testicles?

2. Have you had a hernia repair?

3. Is there blood in your ejaculate?

4. Have you had mumps?

5. Have you had an injury to your testicles?

6. Do you have any family members with cystic fibrosis?

7. Have you had a vasectomy?

8. Are you overweight (with a body-mass index greater than 25)?

9. Are you taking medication for a peptic ulcer?

10. Do you have diabetes?

Fertility Checklist #3: Getting Pregnant

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Do you have intercourse less than twice a week?

2. Do you have a problem with intercourse?

3. Do you have pain with intercourse?

4. Does your partner have problems with erection?

5. Does your partner have premature ejaculation?

6. Have you had the pelvic inflammatory disease?

7. Have you had an operation on your abdomen (eg, a burst appendix)?

8. Do you have discharge?

9. Have you had an ectopic pregnancy?

Make sure you have intercourse at the right time (when you're ovulating)!


Fertility Checklist #4: Male and Female Fertility Problems

 Answer yes or no to the following questions:

Do you have a good, healthy diet?

Do you smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol?

Have you been exposed to environmental hazards?

Have you tried to conceive before without success?

Are you under significant stress?

Do you spend a lot of time apart?

Do you drink excessive amounts of caffeine?

Do you take regular medications?

Do you use recreational drugs?

Do you have a history of a genetic problem?

If you answered 'yes' to one or more of these questions, you need to consult a doctor about why you can't get pregnant. Make an appointment with your family physician doctor, and consider talking to our&#x00a0;fertility specialist.

A Few Point To Be Consider For The Infertility are Stress, OverWeight, Irregular Periods, Having PCOS/PCOD Issue, Low Sperm Count , Sexual Problem.
