IUI- intra uterine insemination done for infertility. Wait for urine test to become positive on or after 34 days. B HcG test can be done in blood a week before cycle to reassure you about embryo implantation. You can get this test done, I am sure your Dr. must have suggested you same. Pain is not related to procedure and I would suggest you,not to take any painkiller for the sake of danger to developing fetus.

Don't just keep popping I pills to your partner. They r not safe and have side effects. Instead practise safe sex Only if she misses her period you can do a blood test for confirmation (beta Hcg)

Usually there is no chance of getting late this month. It might be late is hormonal upset took place.

I have a doubt that if someone do IVF treatment why the child is always a girl child? And most of them have twin children?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

no it's not that, having a girl child is mere coincidence, and having twin is bcz of two eggs been fertilised owing to the strong ovulation inducing Medicines given before IVF

Hi, you are puzzled some extent regarding amenorrhoea since 2 months. It will recur shortly, try to take care of your balanced diet with good life style management. Though preg test negative, take hematonic drugs and some gynecological uterine drug to boost your hormonal function.

I am 19 years old and am a married girl we are very confused should we plan a baby or not ?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Chandigarh
it is better not to plan a pregnancy at this time.. you are a teenage.. teenage or young pregnancy is associated with many problems both to the mother and foetus. like anemia, malnutrition, preeclampsia, more nausea and vomiting, fetal growth restriction , prematurity, low birth weight and many neonatal problems. there is also increased likelihood of caesarean delivery as pelvic bones are not well developed amd may be a contracted pelvis necessitating caesarean delivery and hence increased morbidity. there is chances of varioud postpartum complications also.

Hi lybrate-user. The injection that you have been told about is given if she her blood group is negative. Mild pain is common in pregnancy. But as you has a miscarriage earlier I would suggest you do an ultrasound scan of baby and see if all is well and also do a urine routine and microscopy done to check for infections.

If you wer experiencing regular periods before 26 jan, and this situation is for the firt time, then it is a real thing to worry about------------but as home pregnancy test shows negative reading, so my suggestion for you is to get your pregnancy test done from a nearby relaible lab and if again negative then nothing to worry about and jut wait for few more days--------

food for doshas

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
food for doshas
Vata types need foods that calm their tendency toward anxiety and overactivity. Heavy, cooked foods served warm are the most soothing. Dairy products, sweeteners, and foods cooked or served with fats and oils pacify vata. Steam veggies and drizzle with a little ghee (clarified butter) or olive oil, or stir-fry them in oil or ghee. Rice and wheat are excellent grains for vata types. Juicy fruits and vegetables, heavy fruits (such as avocados and bananas), risotto, sweet and sour veggies, and warm berry cobbler with whipped cream all help pacify vata. Avoid hot, spicy foods. Vatas can healthfully cook with more salt than pittas and kaphas.

Fiery pitta needs to be cooled down. Serve foods at cool temperatures, but not ice cold which inhibits digestion. Pittas thrive on reduced amounts of fats, oils, and salt. Sweet, completely ripe fruits and all vegetables except garlic, tomatoes, radishes, and chilies are pitta-pacifying. Moderate portions of dairy products are fine, but minimize sour-cultured ones. Coriander and mint have cooling effects. Coconuts, pomegranates, grilled vegetable salad, and rice pudding all reduce pitta.

Sluggish, cool kapha needs to be stimulated and warmed up. Light, dry, warm foods reduce kapha. Use minimal amounts of fats and oils. Sweeten foods with honey, but never cook or bake with it. Grains such as barley, buckwheat, and rye are the best for kapha types, as are light, dry fruits, such as apples and cranberries. Low or nonfat milk is good, but minimize cultured dairy products. Kapha types can eat all spices and herbs but need to be cautious with salt. Pumpkin and sunflower seeds and all beans, with the exception of the oilier soybean, are excellent.

Vaginal infection

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh

It is a common condition, and causes discomfort in post-pubertal and adult women, whether sexually active or not.
Though the condition will affect around one third of women during their lifetimes, there are steps you can take to prevent having an itchy, fishy smelling vagina.

Prevent vaginal infections:

- wipe from front to back after a bowel movement. Pat yourself dry after passing urine. Use unscented, uncoloured, double-layered toilet paper.

- wash your genital area once a day with plain water or use a mild, unperfumed soap to wash the genital area. Rinse well with a hand-held shower head and dry the area thoroughly with a soft towel or a cool air hairdryer before getting dressed. Don? t use bubble baths, vaginal deodorants or talc, or douches.

- use sanitary towels, rather than tampons, or change tampons every 4 hours. Do not forget to remove tampons.

- eat a well-balanced diet, which includes dahi, curd, yoghurt. Follow a healthy lifestyle, since a healthy person fights infection more effectively.

- when taking antibiotics, take probiotics, such as yakult, or increase your intake of live yoghurt.

- if you are overweight, get into shape, as being overweight might cause repeated yeast infections.

- wear cotton underwear. Cotton absorbs moisture. Yeast thrives in a warm, damp atmosphere. Let your body breathe. Avoid tight-fitting jeans, lycra shorts and tights. Wear loose clothing and sleep without any undergarments at night.

- do not use any chemicals, such as douches, spermicides

She can take milk. Now some backahe is common but excessive pain needs attention. Do not take drugs without consulting doctors. Maintain correct posture. For leg pain, movement of leg is needed. If severe, consult doctor immediately to make sure that it is not vein thrombosis.

Dear your wife can easily gain weight and get a healthy body by following these best things - 1. To gain weight, your digestion should work properly. If you have any disease of digestive system you should treat disease first. For proper digestion - take 10 gms powder of carom seeds (ajwain, 10 gm powder of cumin (jeera), 10 gm of rock salt. Mix them well and take 1/2 teaspoon (3-5 gm) of mixture daily after meal. Or take 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (kali mirch), 1/ 2 tea spoon of jeera (cumin), 2-3 slice of ginger. Boil it in one glass of water for 2-3 minutes. Drink 5-10 teaspoons (15-20 ml) in morning and evening for strong digestive system. Or you can take amla powder 1 teaspoon with water for strong digestion. 2. Take a diet rich with proteins and fats. You should take high calorie food that increase your muscle mass and induce growth in bones. I am sending the diet chart. Follow it in your daily life to fastly gain weight * in morning, take a glass of milk added with 2 teaspoons of protein powder with breakfast. * in lunch time, take 1 bowl of curd or 100 gm of cheese, a bowl of vegetable, with chapattis. * in evening, take 1 glass of milk (300 ml) with 2 bananas. * in night, take a bowl of careals (daal, a bowl of salad with chapattis. 3. In morning, get up early and take awalk for 10-15 minutes and exercise light weight exercises for at least 30 minutes at home or gym. 4. For proper weight, proper sleep is very important. So you should sleep for 6-8 hours daily. 5. Avoid soft drinks, western fast food (burgers, french fries, pizza etc. They disturb your digestion. 6. You can try protein powders like endura mass, milk powder, soya protein. And creatinine for weight gain by taking 1 tea spoon added in milk once a day.
