Even if your husband has not ejaculated inside your vagina, yet mere penetration may be enough since sperm leaks and travels fast. Please get a pregnancy test (Blood) on 17th and repeat (both blood & urine) after 7 more days to rule out pregnancy.

At 30 weeks it is only possible to suggest early delivery is by checking the mouth of the uterus. If it is short, soft and opening up during the first pregnancy, only then it indicates risk. Also important is whether the pain is only during movements or is it happening regularly with hardening of the uterus. They may indicate preterm labour. Please also check earlier scans to know if there were fibroids or ovarian cysts. If the pain is recent, repeat the scan to confirm there is no fresh problem.

Is use of condom is necessary with wife, I can't do sex with any one expect my wife, is it safe to do sex with wife without using condom ?

Dear, sex is natural process, you need not to use condom if you do not want to avoid pregnancy. Condom is used just to avoid unwanted pregnancy. This is good if you are faithful to your life partner. You may seek consultation in private if you face any other health problem.

Normal Delivery - 18 Things You Must Always Remember!

Normal Delivery - 18 Things You Must Always Remember!

Giving birth is a life-changing event for every mother and it leaves an everlasting impression in your life. Every delivery is unique and you can just gain from the experience of others, but don’t expect it to be the same. 
You will experience many changes in your body and will learn to take care of yourself and your growing baby as soon as you find out that you are pregnant. Pain is a part of labour that every woman has to undergo. It is the fear of labour pain that make many pregnant women opt for c-section. However there is no denying the fact that c-section is a major surgery and requires several days to recover.

Keep in mind the following tips to go in for a normal delivery:

  1. Try to get prenatal education, which guides you about labour, birth and natural labour pain management techniques, such as breathing, self-hypnosis, relaxation and other coping mechanisms. You should check with your hospital too as most of them offer an evening or weekend course.
  2. Consult a gynaecologist who has a history in delivering babies naturally.
  3. Keep yourself physically active by doing mild exercises throughout pregnancy.
  4. You should keep a calm environment in your labour room.
  5. Don’t gain too much weight as women who aren't overweight do not have much difficulty in delivering babies vaginally.
  6. Opt for fewer rather as more tests, treatments and interventions during your pregnancy tend to interfere with normal birth. Whenever tests or procedures are recommended, you should ask about the need of undergoing such tests.
  7. Continue with your walks as it helps in relieving the pain.
  8. Go in for a water therapy. A shower, bathtub, birthing pool and hot compresses are other tools for easing pain and helping you relax. Spend as much time as possible in water.
  9. Use various positions such as sitting on the toilet, kneeling, and squatting to ease vaginal delivery.
  10. Massage/back rubs equally help in easing the pain.
  11. You can also go in for Effleurage which is a light massage of the abdomen to ease your vaginal delivery.
  12. Apply warm or cold compresses.
  13. Avoid hearing negative stories about labour.
  14. Eat a healthy balanced diet as the health and development of your baby depends on your nutrition.
  15. Stay away from stress and anxiety. Read good books about parenting and be in the company of good lively people.
  16. Use relaxation/breathing techniques to keep yourself calm.
  17. Guided meditation and prayers undoubtedly will reinforce your faith in yourself to deliver a baby vaginally.
  18. Have adequate sleep. Avoid drinking tea or coffee two hours before going to bed in order to have uninterrupted sleep.

Following these tips religiously can definitely increase your chances of having a normal delivery.

Eating disorders leads to hormonal imbalance right? Then is it that hormonal imbalance also causes tenderness of breast/nipple? Plsss help. I need advice pls!

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
As you r just 14 years of age, your hormonal secretion is not yet established yet, causing hormonal imbalance and nipple pain. You can take pain killer if pain is severe other wise it will go without any treatment.

Hi Doctor This is to ask you like yesterday I was with my girlfriend. Now she and I just were having a hug and we started masturbating each other but by mistake my ejaculation went onto her stomach and leg. She was in her shorts. Now she went in and washed it but forgot to wash fingers with soap. And she then used the fingers to wash the vagina. What should be done and is pregnancy possible. Really very scared.

Dear Lybrate user, Though chances of pregnancy are less, it cannot be excluded entirely. In case she misses her periods, it is worthwhile to do urine pregnancy test.
