Dear lybrate-user, If pregnancy test is negative now, then there is remote possibility of having a pregnancy now but you can still wait till the time you get periods. Stop duphaston and periods do not start, then repeat pregnancy test. Regards.

Hello sir or Ma'am we are in live in relationship. And early to get married. My partner is totally healthy. We want sex without condom because here is less pleasure with condom. So we want to know safe period for my sex in menstrual cycle. My partner's​ last periods start on 11 aug. So we want safe period for sex. And please tell there are how many risk in safe period. And why? Because ova is alive 2 or 3 days. So if we perform unsafe sex on 25th day of m.c. Then why risk occurs here.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, The safe period is calculated according to duration of menstrual cycle. Broadly speaking in a regular 28 days cycle, D9-18 is unsafe to have sex. All others are relatively safe but still there is small possibility of getting pregnant near to these days as sperms can remain alive for 5 days inside body. But life of ova is only 24 hrs Hope this helps.

Ovulation Induction & Follicular Monitoring - What Are The Steps Involved?

Ovulation Induction & Follicular Monitoring - What Are The Steps Involved?

Irregular ovulation or anovulation (a condition where a woman does not ovulate at all) can be quite agonizing, triggering a host of health problems, including difficulty in conceiving. The irregular ovulation could be an amalgamation of many factors including obesity, thyroid disorders, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, uncontrolled intake of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks, to name a few. With the advancement of medical science, the problem is no longer a big deal. In this article, we will discuss the role of ovulation induction and follicular monitoring in dealing with irregular ovulation cycles and the related complications.

What is Ovulation Induction?

Ovulation induction comes as a blessing for women who don't ovulate regularly (there is a deviation from the usual pattern of ovulation that takes place before every menstrual cycle). The procedure aims at regularizing the ovulation process. The medications (often hormones are used in the treatment) play a pivotal role in stimulating the follicular development of the ovaries so that healthy eggs are produced, developed, matured and finally released during ovulation. The procedure also benefits women get their menstrual cycles sans the ovulation (Anovulatory Menstrual Cycles). The problem mainly surfaces due to a drop in the progesterone level (a hormone responsible for the uterine lining thickening).

Steps involved

  1. The ovulation induction is an important process that requires a thorough examination and evaluation of the patient to understand their ovulation process, hormonal balance (or imbalance) and all the factors that could be a possible trigger resulting in the ovulation problem.
  2. In the next step, the physician carries out the stimulation of the ovulation process. For this purpose, selected hormones are given to the affected individual either orally or in the form of injections.
  3. The hormones work towards restoring the balance along with follicular development. This stimulation contributes significantly towards maturing an egg and ensuring its release for ovulation to take place.
  4. Through a series of regular pelvic ultrasounds, doctors are able to carefully monitor the development of the follicles along with how well the lining of the uterus thickens, following the ovulation induction.
  5. For those planning to conceive, ovulation induction, with proper monitoring, goes a long way to ensure at least one healthy egg will be available for the fertilization to take place.

Some women can also opt for Intrauterine Insemination, a pathbreaking procedure whereby, the sperm (collected and stored earlier) is injected into the vagina to facilitate the fertilization process.

Downside of the Ovulation Induction
The ovulation induction requires precision and accuracy and should be performed by experienced professionals who know their skill well.

  1. Even a small mistake in the ovulation induction can trigger many complications including Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. The condition can swell up the ovaries with abdominal pain, vomiting, breathing problems (shortness of breath), sudden and rapid weight gain. The ovaries also appear tender with some pain.
  2. Ovulation induction increases the risk of gestational diabetes, hypertension, nausea, to name a few.

Change Your Habits to Boost Your Fertility

Change Your Habits to Boost Your Fertility

Pregnancy can be easy and smooth, while on the other hand, it might be time consuming, marred with conception difficulties all along the way. Pregnancy may seem exciting to some, whereas it can be stressful for others. Regardless of whether it is the first child you are planning or have had a successful pregnancy previously; there are some tips you need to keep in mind in order to improve fertility and give birth to a healthy child.

Some fertility boosting factors are:

  1. These fantastic swimmers are at the very root of male fertility. Some important components which need to be taken into consideration are sperm count, sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to swim around the female reproductive tract) and morphology (shape and size of a sperm). In order to have all these parameters in check and working fine, one needs to abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption among many other lifestyle modifications.

  2. Having unprotected vaginal intercourse during the woman’s fertile days in a month helps improve chances of conception.

  3. Fertility becomes a challenge when you are either overweight or underweight. The weight of a woman affects ovulation (The release of eggs from the ovaries) and causes hormonal imbalance; factors which make it very difficult to conceive. Keep your weight levels in check and that could prove primarily essential in bettering your fertility.

  4. Staying well nourished boosts your odds of conceiving! Make sure to include enough protein, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D in your diet, because deficiencies in these nutrients have been linked to lengthened menstrual cycles (and therefore less frequent ovulation) and a higher risk of early miscarriage. Ask your gynaecologist if you should take a daily multivitamin supplement. And be sure to eat protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, low-fat dairy products, eggs, and beans.

  5. Beware of STDs or Sexually Transmitted Diseases. One is the most prone to STDs of any kind if he/she happens to engage in unprotected sexual intercourse; having a number of sexual partners just ups the chances of getting afflicted by STD. Protected vaginal intercourse helps prevent STDs, thus enhancing fertility and subsequently, chances of conception.

  6. According to several studies, the lubricant one chooses surprisingly plays a significant role in determining fertility. Not all lubricants boost fertility and sperm motility (sperm count). Baby oil or egg whites are a few good examples of such lubricants.

  7. While a limited amount of caffeine consumption is good, overdoing it might spoil and hamper fertility. Limit caffeine intake and keep it within a level of 200-250mg a day.

  8. Smoking, besides playing havoc with every organ in the body, affects the reproductive organs and thus fertility. In men, it leads to reduced sperm count and in women, it causes DNA damage. Stub the bud right now and never get back to it.

  9. Certain toxic chemicals can lead to female and male infertility. So it is advisable that you stay away from chemicals such as pesticides, organic solvents and lead, the primary toxins which pose a severe threat to fertility.

  10. Exercising regularly can never go wrong. It gives you the strength and stamina, boosting your overall health. However, vigorous exercises, especially when you are trying to conceive, will do you no good. It might adversely lead to the suppression of certain hormones such as progesterone (pregnancy stimulating hormone) and might affect ovulation, hence affecting fertility. Aim at a regular 20 minutes session of light exercises; mild cardiovascular exercises such as walking can work wonders, especially in such circumstances.

Debunked Myths About IVF and You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

Debunked Myths About IVF and You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

In vitro fertilization or IVF is deemed as one of the wonder treatments for couples who are facing infertility issues. Whether it is due to poor sperm quality of blocked fallopian tubes, IVF has proven to be a safe and effective solution. However, like with all new techniques, IVF also has some myths which need to be understood before signing up for the procedure. With so much at stake in terms of finances and time, understanding the process will help set realistic expectations and improve the success rate of IVF.

Myth 1: High success rate. While IVF has very high success rates, some women just fail to get pregnant. This could be about 5% of the women and may not be attributable to any particular cause. Each woman responds differently, and failure to conceive through IVF could be due to no explainable cause. What is interesting is that though the first attempt failed, subsequent attempts may be successful. Failing the first cycle does not mean failure in subsequent cycles. Also, success rate differs from clinic to clinic, and so choose one which has a proven track record and good success rates. It should not just have good doctors but also the essential technology and infrastructure to support the IVF technique.

Myth #2: IVF leads to multiple births. While achieving multiple births is easier through IVF, it always does not lead to multiple births. Multiple embryos are implanted, only to improve the chances of success. It does not necessarily translate into multiple births. In women over 38 years of age, it is mandatory to only transfer a single embryo as multiple births are very likely to be complicated.

Myth #3: Rest and time off work. It is believed that IVF has a higher success rate with proper rest and time off work. Rest is definitely required the first few days after embryo transplant but it definitely later assumes a normal course of things. It is not that too much time off work is required, just because you had an IVF. Your body might be different and require more rest, but that could have been the case even with a normal pregnancy.

Myth #4: The medications with IVF are going to have lots of side effects. While the hormones given to promote egg release do have their side effects of making you feel moody and emotional, it is only transient. Once the egg release happens, fertilization is done, and embryo transplant is done, then things should settle down. The effects should wear down once the embryo is implanted and then things should settle down. Of course, pregnancy brings its own hormonal changes, which will run their course through pregnancy.
