If she has been taking pills regularly then pregnancy is unlikely. I would advice her to stop all medicines and wait for at least a week. Use condoms or abstain interim.

After 3 months of abortion you can try for next conception. And start taking folic acid and nutritious diet for that.

My wife is 27 years old and she is 5 month pregnant. please suggest me what are the diet for her.
In pregnancy need to take nutritious diet like protein, vitamins, carbohydrate, and calcium rich fruits. Eat Protein-Rich Foods: Proteins are the building blocks of our body. They are considered as the best 5th month pregnancy food. A diet rich in proteins is essential to ensure baby’s physical development is on the right course. Muscles, skin and organs need protein to grow and sustain themselves. Include chicken, eggs, nuts, pulses and cereal in your diet. If you are a vegetarian, you can always go for soya chunks, steamed chickpea, cottage cheese and tofu.

1. Sit straight in your chair with support of lumbar roll, rolled towel or small pillow over low back area.

Lifestyle modification is the primary treatment. Lose weight and avoid all fatty food. Excercise daily. And keep trying for coception. Generally treatment for infertility not started by doctors before 1 year of marriage. So you keep trying and follow the advice.

At your age menopause is very likely what is producing all those symptoms. Bp will vary and I wouldn' t worry about it. You will very likely need medication to ease the rigors of menopause and medication with homeopathy will ensure a hassle free transition. Do let me know what you decide. Dr. J tikari

Hello lybrate user- irregular menses might occur due to two causes, first if you have developed anaemia (low hb count) or you have experienced sudden gain in your weight occur in pcod (poly cystic ovarian disease). It will affect your ovulation and hence your fertility after marriage. Try this ayurvedic treatment- a) tab kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. B) tab hyponid 1 tab thrice daily. C) do basti treatment by nearby ayurvedic doctor (it is a very effective treatment in ayurveda for pcod).

Mere bulky uterus is never an indication for surgery. Often women who delivered number of children can have bulky uterus. What we need is to review the usg diagnosis and also to check if there is any problem inside her. If no, she does not need any drugs at all.

You are suffering from dysmenorrhoea which should be initially treated with meftal spas three times a day during menses. If the pain is too severe and not controlled by medicines then you would benefit by getting ultrasound done which can find ovarian cyst or endometriosis or fibroids.

Applying lavender oil around your stomach is known to help relieving cramps in just 10 to 15 mins or else you can have a carrot juice Carrots are not only good for your eyes; they also assist in regulating menstruation. A tall glass of carrot juice can go a long way in making you feel much better Avoid red meat and caffeine. They have properties that exacerbate the pain
