hi Narender ideally you should avoid sex after abortion for 6weeks. as it may increases risk of infections. Even though you are having MalaD, it will prevent pregnancy but not infection

One year is high time to consult doctor for the problem. I usually don't advise tubal test at 1st visit. But you have done it and it's normal. Get some other tests for you and your partner and get the treatment. All the best

Hello, She can opt for low dose oc pills or she may opt for a copper-t for 5 years to prevent pregnancy but both are not advised if she hasn't been pregnant even once. Barrier contraception still would be the best option for you.

Don’t Fear Sex There are many different issues that can arise during pregnancy and every woman’s circumstances are different; with that being said, you should always check with your health care provider to find out what is safe for you. Once you get the "green light, it’s important to trust your doctor and not let fears or myths stop you from having a healthy and enjoyable sex life throughout your pregnancy! Also, try Kegeling (naturally tightening and relaxing the muscles, which form part of the pelvic wall regularly); the exercise has many wonderful benefits that: * Help you to be more orgasmic * Enhance sexual enjoyment for both partners * Prevent prolepses of pelvic organs * Condition muscles making birth easier, and help prevent tears and episiotomies * Help prevent leaking urine when you sneeze or cough.

That gel is usually prescribed for one of the two purposes- either for lubrication to reduce pain or sexual dysfunction. If it's for the reason one, you can use any lubricant. Otherwise use L-arginine containing gel

My wife had her ovaries & uterus removed due to infection in a laparoscopic operation in May 2014.Now, she is having minor discharge occasionally. Doctors have checked & say it could be due to vaginal infection and prescribed medicines. But it continues. What could be the reason?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

In the first place if there is uterine infection or ovarian infection, treatment is not removal of those organs. Treatment is only drainage of pus and antibiotic. As it will spread infection to the surrounding organs. Please get ultrasound or CT scan

What are the factors that determine the success of your IVF procedure?

Factors that determine the success of your IVF procedure

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a process wherein an egg is fertilized by a sperm in a laboratory dish to form the embryo (baby's first cell) which after growth in artificial medium in the lab is transferred into the uterus of women, In general, a blood sample is collected to determine whether you're pregnant or not about 10-14 days after the eggs are retrieved.

Coming to the success of the procedure, a number of factors are at play and these are:

The age at which you get pregnant

A factor that plays a role in influencing your chances of experiencing success in your IVF procedure is the age at which you opt for this procedure. The lower your age, the chances that you may get pregnant and deliver a healthy child using your own eggs witness an increase. On the other hand, if you're aged 41 and above, or your egg reserve is very low donor eggs are the most preferred option as they help to increase your prospects of meeting a success.

Lifestyle habits

Certain lifestyle factors can significantly affect your prospects of getting pregnant through this route. Smoking can reduce your prospect of success using this procedure by about 50%. It can cause you to have lesser number of eggs retrieved during the procedure while increasing instances of miscarriages. Likewise, obesity, alcohol use, consumption of excessive caffeine and drugs can adversely affect your chances of getting pregnant using IVF.

Cause of Infertility

If your supply of eggs is normal, success rate using IVF is high. Women who suffer from the problem of endometriosis experience lesser chances of getting pregnant than women who have unexplained fertility.

Reproductive history

IVF success rate chances are higher if you've delivered a baby previously using IVF.

Embryo status

Embryos that are better developed with good grade stand a higher chance of experiencing success than less developed embryos. More importantly, not every embryo is able to survive the development process.

Your sister has to take thyroid medicine throughout pregnancy and after delivery also. Please follow the doctors advice and during pregnancy thyroid test will be repeated few times and dosage adjusted. After delivery depending on the TSH value doctor will advice whether to stop and when to stop. The important thing she should continue the medicine during pregnancy and should not stop without doctors advice.

Your wife needs oral iron supplements. If time left for delivery is less she may need parenteral injections as well. Just with diet rich in iron it's not possible to reach normal levels.

Hi lybrate-user. Semen coming out of vagina after intercourse is absolutely normal. Only one sperm is needed for pregnancy and the semen flowing out will not lead to any problem in conceiving.

Fibroids can be treated with surgery or embolization. Medicines can be given to control symptoms like bleeding. They do not remove fibroids. The actual treatment offered will depend on the size and site and actual symptoms.

What is the age of your child? if you give bottle feed the milk production will decrease. It is better to exclusively breastfeed the babies till 6 months. Ask me privately for regular advice on child rearing.
