It depends on the duration of pregnancy this time. If product is large you may bleed excessive. So do it under supervision of a gynaecologist.

You both, the newly weded couple, must plan when do you wish to have a baby. Till that time you can use" temporary contraceptive methods" of all the contraceptive methods, for a newly married person, I would recommend oral contraceptive pills as their efficacy is about 99%. When using the pills it is better to meet a local gyencologist and seek advice about how to take and other precautions. When pills are taken for contraception, they take 15 days to act, hence for the first pack of pills, the couple has to either abstain from sex, or use condoms for every act for the first 15 days. After this usually no additional contraceptive will be required. And pills have to be taken sequentially in 21/7 regime or 24/4 regime or 28day continuous regime as per the choice of pills. There are many types of pills, and the gynecologist will choose the one thats best suitable for your wife, based on know how of her: present cycles present complaints about menses body weight concerns medical diseases and correction of any additional problems like acne, etc so go and get some contraceptive advice from a local gynecologist.

Tell the report of HSG test. Further plan depends on it. There are numerous treatment options that make many couples happy. So, don't give up hope. All the best.

5 Surprising Foods that Will Keep You Cool this Summer

5 Surprising Foods that Will Keep You Cool this Summer

As much as you would like, an ice cream can't help you cool down in the scorching heat of this summer. Although one may argue that one feels just fine after an ice cream, the truth is that it's only temporary. Cooling foods are what you should have as they help to cool heat and cleanse toxins from the body.

Here are some of the foods that help cool down your body naturally:

1) Cucumber - Not surprisingly, being 'cool as a cucumber' actually holds true. Cucumbers are fruits that help keep the body hydrated. Keeping your body cool during hot days is vital to your health as it can help prevent a number of complications such as heat strokes and dehydration. Munching on cucumber slices and hummus is a good way to beat the heat and stay cool.

2) Watermelon - This quintessential beach fruit is yet another one which would help you beat the heat. This seasonal fruit acts like an internal air-conditioner, and is rich in water, helping in reducing body heat to a large extent while keeping you hydrated.

3) Peaches - Peaches are not only delicious but are very rich in vitamins A and C, which help in keeping your body cool. Besides, these vitamins also help in maintaining healthy skin and provide useful calories to the body.

4) Apples - Apples are fruits that help to fill you up and cool down your body at the same time. They contain about 4g of fiber and around 95 calories and are enriched with a soluble fiber called pectin, which stops hunger and helps in shedding weight.

5) Pineapple - Along with banana, cucumber, and some other fruits, pineapple helps to make a healthy smoothie. These ingredients have cooling properties, which hydrate the body and help to clear the heat. Also, pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which reduces inflammation in the body.

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.

My wife has seven month pregnancy. She having cough and cold. What is doing in it?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

My wife has seven month pregnancy. She having cough and cold. What is doing in it?
If it is coming with fever she will need a safe antibiotic. If the cough is dry and severe and giving breathing problems, then also best to use a good antibiotic for 5 days. Otherwise, simple cough suppressants and anti-histaminics may suffice. Keep the neck region covered. Warm saline gargles. Lots of fluids in diet.
