My periods are late by 22 days. It was supposed to come on 4th/5th july but it didn't. Me and my partner got intimate on 25th june and according to my period tracker app, I wasn't fertile. We didn't have sex (there was no penetration and no ejaculation). I am still a virgin. But we rubbed our genital parts for a while so there might be possible precum which I am not sure about but there was no ejaculation whatsoever. Just to assure myself I took three pregnancy tests too and they came negative but I am still paranoid that something might be wrong. Please guide me. Is there something to worry about?
Hey. I missed my periods. Last time it came on 18th april. My period cycle is normal. (28 days). I had unprotected sex on 27th april like for 1 time, otherwise we used protection. He pulled out before sperm discharge (as he told). But for surety I had unwanted 200 mg tablet. But till 45 days I did not had my periods. And there is no source to check whether pregnancy is positive or not. I found out that the pill I took was for abortion and not prevention, so I took unwanted kit assuming that my period is delayed because of pregnancy. After taking misoprostol, I did not bleed for 24 hrs, after one day I had bleeding of about 20-25 drops. And other 2-3 consecutive days I had just 5-10 drops of bleeding. Does that mean I am not pregnant. Or does that mean I am pregnant and the abortion process did not went well.
Infidelity is defined as having an affair, as cheating or as committing actions associated with adultery, while being in a relationship characterized by a stated contract involving emotional or sexual exclusivity. It is also stated as a violation of a couple’s assumed set of relationship norms and rules. This violation may lead to rivalry or sexual jealousy between couples.
Types of Infidelity:
Opportunistic Infidelity: It originates when an individual is in love with his/her partner but has sexual urge for some other individual. This type of infidelity is characterized by irrepressible lust, risk-taking behavior or situational circumstances.
Romantic Infidelity: This kind of infidelity occurs when an individual is at the verge of falling out of love with his/her spouse.
Commemorative Infidelity: It occurs when an individual has completely fallen out of love with his/her partner, but there is still commitment in the relationship.
Obligatory Infidelity: This kind of infidelity arises when a person surrenders himself/herself to someone else’s sexual advancement due to fear of rejection, even though there is a strong attachment to the committed partners.
Conflicted Infidelity: This type of infidelity is being sexually attracted to multiple people while being in a committed relationship.
Men indulge in extramarital affairs when they are sexually unsatisfied. Whereas women get involved in extramarital affairs when they are emotionally unsatisfied.
When a person is able to separate sexual preferences from love, infidelity takes place.
Lack of understanding, lack of communication and sexual incompatibility leads to infidelity.
Marital dissatisfaction is the root cause of adultery in both sexes.
Other factors of infidelity including, being educated, being less religious, more chances to see potential partners, living in an urban area, liberal thinking etc.
How to Overcome Infidelity?
Try not to fall for every whim and fancy; this way you can keep away from an affair.
The person who had an affair must discuss on the affair and what led to it, openly and willingly.
There must be a recovery timetable set by the betrayed person, so as to cope with the trauma of being cheated on.
There must be mutual willingness regarding future commitments and promises.
- There will always be ups and downs in a relationship, in which an affair has taken place, but the couple must be patient and hold on to the relationship as the pathway to recovery is difficult, but not impossible to walk on. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.
IVF is not the only solution to every infertility problem. You can choose from amongst a number of options which are available today. A number of these options are both cost-effective and less invasive when compared to IVF. You need to know more about the other options before making any hasty decisions. IVF is an extremely expensive and complicated treatment which needs to be monitored at each step. However, there are other options which are more feasible and should be considered before selecting the procedure of IVF. Some of these alternatives are mentioned below.
Intrauterine Insemination or Artificial Insemination involves placing the man’s semen inside the woman’s uterus, fallopian tubes or the cervix. The process of IUI is often selected when the woman does not have an issue with regular ovulation. This procedure has become extremely popular and common due to its cost-effectiveness. This may be one of the first alternatives which your doctor may suggest to IVF.
The procedure for artificial insemination is quite simple. The doctor starts with using ovulation kits, ultrasounds and blood tests to make sure that you are ovulating before going through the process of insertion. A sample of the semen is to be provided to the doctor. The doctor suggests not having sex for at least 2 to 5 days in order to be sure that the sperm count is high. Once the semen is washed within an hour of being collected, technicians liquefy the sperm to increase the chances of pregnancy. A chemical solution is used to separate out the most active and healthy sperm. The sperm is then placed in a catheter to be put inside the cervix via the vagina.
IVM or In Vitro Maturation
In Vitro Maturation is distinctly from In vitro Fertilization as the former focuses on maturation of the eggs in the laboratory after they are collected from the ovaries. However, the process of fertilization is similar to the traditional process of IVF. The procedure of IVM is usually preferred over IVF as it is significantly cheaper than the IVF treatment.
Sometimes the process of ovulation induction can also help women become pregnant easily. The ovulation is stimulated with the help of various medicines. With the help of simple medications and an ultrasound scan the chances of getting pregnant increases.
