Hi, as there are many types and subtypes in the occurrence of syndactyly and the familial occurrence depends on the sub types please consult a genetic specialist who can analyse and give the exact probability of whether your child will be affected or not. Even if it occurs please don't get tensed. Nowadays surgical speciality is improved a lot and after birth it can be corrected easily.

4. शहद और काली मिर्च या शहद और लहसुन
शहद में काली मिर्च मिलाकर इसका सेवन न सिर्फ जुकाम से राहत दिलाता है बल्कि सेक्स की इच्छा भी बढ़ाता है।

5. अश्वगंधा
अश्वगंधा, लाल चंदन, लौंग, सेंधा नमक को बराबर मात्रा में मिलाकर इसका सेवन भी शरीर को उत्तेजक बनाने और लंबे समय तक पौरुष बरकरार रखने में मददगार है।

6. अर्जुन पेड़ की छाल

This is a short time, please give yourself and your wife some more time. You can however practise sex from day 10- day17 of the menstrual cycle, counting her 2st day of periods as day1. This is known as the Fertile Period.

It is very unlikely that she would get pregnant if periods were going on. After 5 days, no method would help in preventing a pregnancy.

If you avoid pregnancy donot do sex in unsafe period. Safe period is 1st day to 7th day and 20 th day to strat of next mc. You can sex without nirodh safely. During unsafe days use nirodh with cautions.

To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is conside.

When a girl can be pregnant while unprotected sex? And when it is totally safe naturally to have unprotected sex?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
There is nothing like totally safe but in a girl having regular periods at 28 days interval days 1 to 10 and 17-28 are considered safe. In a girl with irregularity days are unpredictable.
