If you have regular cycle of 28 days then your ovulation will be around 12th to 15th day of your cycle. So should do regular intercourse in this duration 2 days before and 2 days after.

The physiotherapist can tell her about the pre-natal exercises which will be helpful for normal delivery with less pain. Medication: Recommending you homoeopathic medicine which is safe to take to her at 7th month of the pregnancy once a day daily till before delivery - Caulophyllum 200.

Hi I am 25 years old and I got married 10 months back. I was 5 months pregnant. Suddenly 1 week back I got severe pain near pelvic region early morning and when we reached hospital they said the baby moved till vagina and there is no chance of baby survival. I delivered male dead baby that day but his weight was 370gms and his formation was not good as his intestine developed outside his stomach. I got ultrasound scan at my mid 4th month but they said everything was good. I too didn't felt any abnormality. I used all medicines prescribed by my doctor without fail. It was a sudden abortion without any reason. The doctor said the cervix opened and baby reached till vagina. I want to why abortion happened and why my baby development was not not good?

Development may not be good due to various reasons- like defects in its gene, some drugs or unknown causes. But these should have been detected by scan. Now this abortion was probably due to "cervical incompetence" where cervix opens before time. We have to rule out possible causes before planning next pregnancy and give you proper care before and during pregnancy.

Hydronephrosis can be due to a pathology but the pressure of the uterus can also do the same if there are no other issues better get it looked at and treated after delivery.

My friend had unprotected sex 1 week before with her boyfriend. She got her periods on 19 April and she had sex on 13 April. She is concerned because the flow of her period is very light after 1 day.

Hello If that was really periods then nothing to worry, but if she have doubt, she should have to check with home kit first. If anything shows doubtful then she needed to make confirm by sonography with gynecologist. One good advise; Never make unprotected relations.

Do a ultrasonography to see in there is something to worry or not. You can take some tablets like tb. Meftal spas if you are not allergic to it during your periods.

Blighted ovum occurs because of chromosomal defect which naturally occurs in 15% of any pregnancy. You should start folic acid tablet asap and get ultrasound 2 weeks after missed period.

Herbal Tips to remove dark circles.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, DNHE, P.G. Diploma in Panchkarma, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Hapur
Herbal Tips to remove dark circles.
• Get adequate sleep and rest.
• Avoid rubbing your eyes too much or too often as it causes the blood vessels to dilate, thus making the under eye circles appear darker.
• Remove your make-up before going to sleep or else it may irritate your eyes.
• Limit sun exposure.
• Drink plenty of water throughout the day to get rid of water retention that could be causing the problem.
• To avoid eye bags caused by pooling of fluids in your lower eyelids, elevate your head by adding two or more pillows under your head before going to sleep.
• Pay attention to your diet and eat foods rich in vitamins A, C and E.
• Stop smoking and restrict alcohol and caffeine consumption; smoking damages skin cells, and alcohol and caffeine contribute to dehydration which in turn weakens the delicate skin around the eyes

Dear Lybrate user, It is better to follow what your doctor has advised, since in online consultation, one cannot know about full details. With the inputs you have given, it seems that Medical therapy can be tried.

If she is planning to get pregnant then she should not take any medicines to cure this. This can be cured with 3 months course of medicine. It occurs because of hormonal changes. If the problem is since long time and if there is no issue of getting pregnant or if she is not married then 3 months course of medicines is sufficient to get rid of this.

Eat a diet less in calories, fats and sugars. So cut down on all fried foods, sweets, chocolates and junk stuff like pepsi, coke etc; increase the proteins in your diet like chicken, fish, dals, beans etc; replace white bread for brown bread or chappati. Have enough vegetables, fruits and water daily. In addition do regular exercise.

Before starting out for a walk, relax and take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air which will move them into their most efficient position. After you exhale, maintain the chest in this position with shoulders down and slightly back throughout the walk.

You should keep your weight in control by regular exercise and diet control. If possible get a sonography. Start minimum 45 min of walk daily. Reduce sweets, fried, oily food. Take whole grains and include proteins like pulses, curd, soya in your meals.
