Pregnancy test can not come positive till 19-21 days after having sex. If she missed period by 7 days then only test to be done and keep repeating every week till she gets menses. If pregnancy is there menses will not come with any medicine. Abortion can be done with medicine if pregnancy test is positive.

Its vaginal prolapse always, not bladder prolapse as such. Content of vaginal prolapse can be urinary bladder. Fibroids are almost never known for this entity under normal circumstances.

EFFECT OF ALCOHOL ON SPERM AND SEMEN PRODUCTION

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S

Studies have indicated that excessive alcohol intake can reduce the quantity and quality of the sperm. Alcohol can enter the testicles through the bloodstream and cause damage to the shape of the sperm cells. This can lead to sperms with deformed heads or tails and cause hindrance to their movement.

The semen of men may also contain alcohol and this may reach the egg, damaging the resulting embryo. This may cause birth defects and miscarriages.

Studies have been conducted on animals to find out if alcohol has any negative effect on sperm production. In a study conducted on rats, it was found that alcohol led to low levels of testosterone and disturbances in hormonal functioning. It also found decreased seminal production in these rats.

It is believed that alcohol may affect sperm in such a way that only a few remain free of the damaging effects of drinking. It also alters the semen composition, which can harm the ejaculated sperm by either killing it or by reducing its mobility.

It is also believed that alcohol consumption may cause abnormal liver function which may give rise to increased estrogen levels. This may cause problems in sperm production.

Excessive consumption may reduce sperm count in the short time. However, if you abstain from drinking, your sperm counts may return to normal. However, keep in mind that sperm takes around three months to develop. So, if you are going for a semen analysis test, wait for at least four months before getting your sperm count checked.

If you really cannot do without alcohol, you should limit your consumption. Limit your intake to one or two drinks a day. Anything more than that, can affect your semen and sperm production. Also keep in mind that long-term excessive consumption of alcohol can actually cause permanent and irreversible damage to your sperm production. This means that even after you stop drinking, you may never be able to raise your sperm count levels.

In conclusion, if you really want to conceive, you should stop smoking and limit your alcohol consumption. These can not only reduce sperm count and decrease semen production but also have a negative effect on sperm quality and health as well as the quality of your ejaculation. This means that fertilization may become difficult and even if it does occur, there are increased chances of birth defects in the resultant fetus and an increased chance of miscarriages.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Hello lybrate-user just a mucosal thickening in sinuses on mri will not indicate you have sinusitis. So you shouldn't be worrying for sinusitis ct scan would be more precise than an mri. Only if on ct pns we have significant thickening blocking the route of ventilation of sinuses than it implies you are likely to have headache which requires intervention based on the severity. Also an nasal endoscopy would help. Headache can occur due to many factors other than sinus. Get also an eye checkup done. If you have allergy issues than needs treatment. If headache is with nausea than migraine needs to be ruled out. Also get blood test like haemoglobin, random sugar level tested. Still you can do steam inhalation twice a day if that improves the headache continue for a week. Take paracetamol for headache will give symptomatic relief.
