If you had an emergency pill after unprotected sex ,then the delay in periods might be because of hormonal imbalance due to that pill. Besides that ,as it has been more than a week since you skipped your periods ,it's better to perform a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. All the best.

Earthen Pots And Summer

Thanda thanda cool cool earthen pots (matka)

For generations, earthen pots or matkas have been used to store water and keep it cool.

Its made by the combination of two types of mud clay 1st is taken from surface of earth and 2nd after digging more than 10 feet deeper in earth. 

Earthen pot not only makes the water chilled during summer but also provides healing elements of earth. More importantly the earthen pot transfers the coolness to the water according to the climatic conditions; which is the special quality of earthen pot that no other container has. The chilled water of earthen pots during summer has no other replacement in quenching the thirst and satisfaction of drinking water.

So go ahead stock on those lovely earthen pots.

Your baby's heart beat beat low. 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. Do meditation for mental strength. Follow this and give feedback.

Cough medicines are usually safe during pregnancy. At 33 weeks pregnancy you have already crossed the harmful period for the fetus. Most of the time normal cough does not require any medicines. Conservative treatment like steam inhalation is usually sufficient, only if there is fever it may need antibiotics.

As per your report since your amh level is low and high fsh you are not having good no and quality of eggs, so you may not be able to conceive naturally. So ivf is a better option for you. Still if you want a natural cycle you should go for it asap with wasting time.

If it has never happened before and it is not heavy I wouldn't worry too much. Instead monitor it and the next few cycles. If over the next few months you find that your cycle has changed, periods are becoming heavier/ painful or there is any bleeding during or after sex then please consult a gynaecologist.

Foods to avoid when Pregnant

Foods to avoid when Pregnant


Avoid alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol has been linked to premature delivery, mental retardation, birth defects, and low birthweight babies.

Limit caffeine to no more than 300 mg per day. The caffeine content in various drinks depends on the beans or leaves used and how it was prepared. An 8-ounce cup of coffee has about 150 mg of caffeine on average while black tea has typically about 80 mg. A 12-ounce glass of caffeinated soda contains anywhere from 30-60 mg of caffeine. Remember, chocolate (especially dark chocolate) contains caffeine -- sometimes a significant amount.

The use of saccharin is strongly discouraged during pregnancy, because it can cross the placenta and may remain in fetal tissues. But, the use of other non-nutritive or artificial sweeteners approved by the FDA is acceptable during pregnancy. These FDA-approved sweeteners include aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet), acesulfame-K (Sunett), and sucralose (Splenda). These sweeteners are considered safe in moderation, so talk with your health care provider about how much non-nutritive sweetener is acceptable during pregnancy.

Decrease the total amount of fat you eat to 30% or less of your total daily calories. For a person eating 2000 calories a day, this would be 65 grams of fat or less per day.
Limit cholesterol intake to 300 mg or less per day.

Do not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish (also called white snapper), because they contain high levels of mercury.

Avoid soft cheeses such as feta, Brie, Camembert, blue-veined, and Mexican-style cheese. These cheeses are often unpasteurized and may cause Listeria infection. There’s no need to avoid hard cheese, processed cheese, cream cheese, cottage cheese, or yogurt.

Avoid raw fish, especially shellfish like oysters and clams.

Hello, its a wrong fundamental to associate weight gain to abortion. It has nothing to do with it. Its related to your dietary habits and lifestyle. Obesity can cause increased insulin resistance and hence decreased chances of ovulation and hence may be scanty menses as well.

To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Sex is generally okay in pregnancy. I would only advice to avoid if your wife is having any problem with vaginal bleeding or is known to have a low lying placenta.
