Hello, None of the above two reasons have scientific evidences to prove. Lemon water simply aids digestion, nothing else. You cannot rely on it for weight loss.

Yes, Nuts and seeds are very helpful in providing strength and energy to the mother to be. In addition, drink plenty of water. Most important is to eat enough to gain weight regularly-especially if your wife is thin. It is also important to eat well. Eat fruits and food with a lot of natural fiber. The body needs food rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, especially iron. NOTE: Pregnant women should not eat papayas, which contain natural estrogen and may create the danger of miscarriage.

My friend has a history of people pcos since ten years. And is on Ocp since a year. She had unprotected sex on the 15th day of her cycle but the guy did not ejaculated in her. She had missed her Ocp a day prior. Should she take emergency contraceptive in spite of being on Ocp since a year. What are chances she'll conceive?

Hello, No she should just take 2 pills the next day of the OCP pack and need not take an ECP at all. She is protected as she has been regular on pills since last 15 days.

Pregnancy depends on many things. 1. Doing sex on right days. 10-16 days from period date are best for conceiving. So do sex for atleast these days. 2. Thyroid problem in women will cause delay in pregnancy. Get check up done for your wife 3. Semen test for men consult for further help n guidance.

She is aged about 28 years and is married. She has the problem of bleeding even after her menstrual cycle. It occurs a week or two later the actual cycle.

You means to say bleeding in the middle of Menstrual cycle------The condition is termed as Metrorrhagia also known as the dysfunctional uterine bleeding ----Metrorrhagia is common, with patients who are near to their menopausal phase. Basically, this condition is characterized by bleeding episodes (mainly spotting but can lead to severe bleeding) outside the menstrual phase. Metrorrhagia is considered a symptom of a possible health problem but shouldn’t be handled as a serious health problem right away. One should not panic. Some of the main cause are----------- •Endometrial hyperplasia. This condition is said to be a result of abnormal levels of estrogen and decreased levels of progesterone. This abnormality in hormonal levels would then prompt excessive endometrial cells. •Uterine cancer. This is considered a common cause of the metrorrhagia. Increasing age is related to uterine cancer, making postmenopausal women as victims of the uterine cancer. Tumors such as those found in ovarian cysts can result to abnormal off-menstrual bleeding. •Ruptured polyps. There are cases where a woman is unaware that she has cervical polyps. Somehow, after sexual contact, it will be identified. Postcoital bleeding should not be taken lightly, as this may indicate for presence of polyps in the cervix or endometrium. •Cervical dysplasia. This condition is a pre-cancer stage that involves vaginal spotting as a symptom. This may be indicative that cancer development is in progress. •Cervicitis. This is known as infection of the cervix. Bleeding during the infection would indicate prompt attention as this may progress to a chronic problem. •Abortion or miscarriage. This is a common cause of vaginal bleeding. There are cases where after abortion, fetal parts are left that can cause for vaginal infection and bleeding. •Infection. Sexually transmitted infection/s is a probable cause of metrorrhagia. Syphilis is known to cause vaginal bleeding. Those who have Lyme disease are prone to metrorrhagia as they become susceptible to infections. •Hormonal imbalance. There are underlying conditions such as hyperthyroidism/hypothyroidism that cause hormonal imbalance. •Coagulation problems. Women who have an underlying coagulation (blood clotting) problem such as those prone to bleeding are highly susceptible to metrorrhagia. •Use of contraception. The use of devices that can traumatize the vaginal or uterine lining can cause bleeding. IUD is a common device to cause metrorrhagia.--------------------- So identify the cause of your problem from above factors and go for a ULTRASOUND ABDOMEN and consult a Gynaecologist for a Physical examination--------------------

Dear lybrate-user though you are perimenopausal but still kindly go to a gynae clinic and get yourself examined as it is anyways beneficial for a lady using copper t to get herself examined once in a year. In the same consultation the rest of the things can be taken care of. God bless.

There must be infection due to which excessive discharge will be there. And if she is weak also will lead to discharge.

Size of uterus is fine. But a unicornuate uterus with a non-communicating rudimentary horn may be associated with gynecological and obstetric complications such as infertility, endometriosis, hematometra, urinary tract anomalies, abortions, and preterm deliveries. It has a poor reproductive outcome and pregnancy management is still unclear, but a successful pregnancy is possible. Any complications during a pregnancy with a Unicornuate Uterus are normally towards the end of the pregnancy. It’s completely possible to have a normal, healthy pregnancy with a Unicornuate Uterus.
