I am not getting periods regularly. My mensuration cycle period is irregular. What should I do get periods regularly?

Although I dont have you past, present, personal and mental history regarding your problem, even then I will try to give u a medicine on behalf of your asking the question. I guess you are in a habit of taking too much stress for even minor things and is a very worried personality. On this guess I will prescribe u Pulsatilla nigricans 30 ( Dr. Reckeweg ) 1 drop twice daily Menso aid syrup ( bakson ) 2 spoons twice daily Continue for 3 months nd report.

Hi, neither you have mentioned her date of last menstrual period nor the name of pill she has taken anyway if her period is over by more than 5-7 days & in past her period were regular, get her pregnancy test done and report me. You or she can do test easily & test kit is available on drugstore.

There are unexplained causes of infertility also. If you are not conceiving in natural way go for iui or ivf as 5 years is a long time.

hi lybrate user, it is difficult to follow healthy and nutritional diet because of nausea and vomiting .you should have short but frequent meals. in the morning you should have red coloured dry fruits, dry toast in the morning. all fruits such as pomegranate, apple, banana, pear ,green leafy vegetables are good source of dietery iron . you should never take iron with milk and calcium as it will prevent absorption of iron. increase vit C in diet such as lemon,tomotos, orange, sometimes, gooseberry, fig to increase iron absorption. increase proteins in diet pulses, beans, egg whites, fish, meat which helps to increase in hemoglobin.

As you r telling there is no chance of pregnancy if condoms was not torn during sex. If it was your first sexual intercourse then bleeding can happen.

Hello, if the sex was unprotected then even pre cum can get her pregnant in some cases. Though the chances of pregnancy are less but you should keep a watch on her missed menses.

Hello, Now that she is a mum-to-be, it is important to eat well. This will make sure she gets all the nutrients needed. If her diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure she have a healthy diet now. She needs more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. She needs a few more calories during pregnancy as well. Getting the right diet for pregnancy is more about what she eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). These foods are high in calcium, protein and Vitamin B-12. Talk to your doctor about what to eat if you are lactose intolerant. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. One egg, 14 grams of nuts, or ¼ cup of legumes is considered equivalent to roughly 28 grams of meat, poultry, or fish. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fats.

Frequency of intercourse should be 3-4 times a week for full one year to get pregnant. As you r trying since just 2-3 months, you should wait for another 10 months before you seek any medical help. U can follow calender method to get pregnant early. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

If your periods have come you need not to get worried. You hv got your periods after 25 days. It is absolutely normal. Next time you should use a better contraceptive as condom doesn't give 100% protection.

Hello lybrate user I understood your concern and my opinion is that yes you should directly go for amniocentesis if trisomy 21 risk is 1 in 50, there are other non invasive prenatal diagnostic tests available but they are not confirmatory, I hope my answers help you thanks.

Yes. You can. But to save sperms you have to have abstinence for at least 3days. So after abstinence of 3 days, have relations on 12th, 14th and 16th day of menstrual cycle if her cycles are regular.
