Mam meri wife ko period 10 ko huye h aur meri chutti 18 ko h toh kya mai us raat sex karu toh kya wo pregnant ho jayegi.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

If your wife's periods started on 10th, you are planning to have sex on approximately the 8th day of the cycle, which cannot be considered totally safe. It is advisable to use contraception to avoid pregnancy. If you wish to exactly know the'safe days' of your wife's cycle, calculate your safe days, consult a gynecologist.

The reason is just psychological and emotional and nothing scientific in -----------it depends upon a couple when to plan a baby and if they are financially and emotionally ready for it or not-----------planning a baby immediately after marriage proves good to majority as per social thoughts and beliefs and there I nothing logical----------------but if you askme the same question, my answer will be based upon few factors like---- 1. If I am mentally, and financially prepared for it------------ 2. Understanding in thoughts with my wife--------------- 3. If my wife also feels the same-------

Sir my wife is pregnant of 8 weeks. Can sex during pregnancy is safe? Or it causes any discomfort to mother & baby She has polycystic ovary Her date of birth is 07-05-1993.

It is completely safe to be having sex at 8 wks. In fact most women have sex for just a darn bout the entire pregnancy. But that is only if there are no problems happening. But as long as you feel ok go for it! Enjoy it while you can as much as you want cuz once the baby comes there will be no sex for at least a month & a half!

Melons are gifted by nature into different colours like Musk Melon is golden yellow / orange.

Your body needs Vitamin A to produce sebum, which keeps your hair moisturized. You also need Vitamin A for your body tissues (like skin) to grow. Watermelon has Vitamin A, so eat this fruit for attractive skin and hair.

One should also use the outer coat of watermelon which is green as it is very fibrous - can be consumed as a vegetable.
Melon seeds are rich in essential fatty acids like omega-3. Try having the seeds of watermelon with fruits. Musk Melon seeds can be consumed by washing, drying, peeling the outer coat.
These seeds are wonder food for the Brain.

A bowl full of Melon a day in summer keeps Dehydration at Bay.

Surgical Procedure for Treating Breast Cancer

MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Surgical Procedure for Treating Breast Cancer

With the recent number of breast cancer cases on the rise, it is important that we should get the examination done on a regular basis as a preventive measure. Even if someone is suffering from it, it is important that we should make an effort and learn about.

If you have breast cancer then a surgery will be part of your treatment. Based on the condition, surgery will be carried out due to any of the following reasons:
1. To remove the cancerous tissues from the breast
2. To reconstruct the breast once the cancer is removed
3. To check whether the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes below the arm
4. To treat symptoms of cancer that has progressed to an advanced stage

Breast cancer surgery may be classified into two types
1. Mastectomy: Mastectomy involves removing the entire breast; tissues in the adjoining region may also be removed. A double mastectomy is a procedure where both the breasts are removed.
2. Breast-conserving surgery: In this surgery, only parts of the breast affected by cancer are removed. The area of the breast that is to be removed will depend on the severity of the cancer. Some healthy tissues may also be removed in this surgery.

Usually, if a woman is in the initial stages of cancer then she may opt for the latter as it entails removing parts of the breast. They may also undergo radiation therapy along with these surgeries.
For checking if the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes below the arm, the lymph nodes are removed from the body. Once they are removed, they are studied under a microscope to check if it has spread, if yes then the extent of their damage. This procedure is carried out along with the surgery to remove the cancer.

Once the mastectomy procedure is completed, you can opt for a breast reconstruction surgery to rebuild the area. You may opt for this procedure at the time of breast cancer removal or at a later stage. If you are considering breast reconstruction surgery then you should discuss with a surgeon.

Surgery is sometimes not used to treat cancer, but in slowing the progression of cancer or even reducing its symptoms.It is important you talk to your surgeon before the procedure to understand the goal of the surgery.

Pregnancy Query
I check pregnancy test morning its negative but after few hours its 2 line in kit what its mean.
Urine pregnancy tests can be false positive or false negative at times. So, if you have missed your periods, please confirm pregnancy with a blood test i.e. Serum beta-hcg. If it is positive then you are definitely pregnant. And if it is negative then you are definitely not pregnant. So, relieve yourself with a blood test.

If you have already had a proper period this month then it is unlikely you are pregnant from that episode alone.

Hello, You have not mentioned for how long you are not having your periods. Sometime periods can stop due to anxiety arising out of change of place which seems to be in your case. If you are not sexually wait for some time you will have your periods. If you dont have periods even after 2 to 3 months then get you thyroid profile and consult with result.

Usually investigations for infertility are done after a year of not having issue in spite of unprotected intercourse, especially when both of you are young and have no other specific problem.

Hello, on that time to satisfy your craving you should eat sweet fruits like mango, banana, chiku, watermelon. Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of pcos are light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with pcos, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. You should opt homoeopathic treatment, it has cure for pcos. Treatment is based on totality of symptoms and constitution. It takes time but resolve the disease by root. In pcos first we target to get your periods back to normal. Take fucus vesic. Q, 15 drops with water twice daily.

Hello, there is no such foundation. You should just wait for menses to be missed and get urine pregnancy test done after 8 days post missed periods.
