Hi she had unprotected sex 3 days back and feels like she is pregnant and as the pill should only be taken with in 72hr which have already passed, is there an alternate medicine to stop pregnancy if in case she is pregnant. We read on website that there is an emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken with in 120hrs of unprotected sex. Can you help with the name of it or with a plan B.

Ulipristal acetate (known as ella in the US and Ellaone in Europe) was approved as an ECP in Europe in early 2009 and in the US in August 2010. It works for up to 120 hours after intercourse.[6] It prevents pregnancy by delaying or inhibiting ovulation and inhibiting follicle rupture.[11] Watson Pharmaceuticals announced the availability of ella in the United States on December 1, 2010, in retail pharmacies, clinics and one online pharmacy, KwikMed.[12]

My cousin is 24 years old unmarried girl. She is pregnant of 4-5 weeks. Our family want to abort because of obvious reasons. My question is 1. Is abortion safe? 2. Is that painful and critical? 3. How much time it takes? 4. What is the cost involved in it? Please suggest some way. Thanks.

get medical abortion done. kit costs 600/- and 5 tablets are to be taken during 3 days-follow the instructions on pack. pain is a bit more that period pain but lots less than delivery pain. go to doctor only if bleeding does not stop after 10 days. intervention will be needed to take out products retained.

It is better to avoid any medications unless symptoms are bothering. You should take other medications for symptomatic relief as zindatilism contains some metals which can harm baby.

Only follicular study by ultrasound can confirm whether you have ovulation on 14th day or not. If you have a 28 day menstrual cycle, then your likelihood for ovulation on 14th day is high. Very little semen is required for pregnancy to happen (as little as 0.2 ml. Coming out of semen from the vagina after intercourse is absolutely normal as very little of it is required for a lady to get pregnant.

Firstly your hormonal treatment should be perfect and for that you keep on doing regular consultations and check-ups with your doctor, better, an endocrinologist or a physician with good knowledge of endocrinology. Secondly, you have to perform exercises regularly and may join a gym or better you start playing badminton or table tennis or lawn tennis, which involves exercise, recreation and sport’s talent and creates interest in you while pure exercises are boring. You may also do dancing and swimming. These are also good exercises as well as recreation. Thirdly, diet control or taking balanced diet. Reduce carbohydrates. So, avoid rice, potato and ghuiyan (colocasia). Also reduce wheat. In place take besan’s (gram flour) chapaati. Increase pulses containing proteins. Soyabeen has good amount of proteins. Use soya badi or soya paneer. Use skimmed milk or skimmed milk products. Also avoid meat or fish containing fat and high calories. Prawn are low fat high protein diet. Also decrease overall intake of food. Take lot of salad like cucumber, tomato etc to quench your hunger. Take plenty of low fat green vegetable dishes like loki, tori, shaljam, paalak, mooli, shimla mirch. Also use green tea. Take plenty of water frequently. Avoid sugar or sugared tea or coffee, chocolates, sweets and very sweet fruits like grapes. You may take seasonal fruits like amrood, ev (apple), banana in limited quantities.

If this kind of bleeding has occurred for the first time, then there is no need to worry and no need to take any medications. Sometimes hormonal changes can bring about this kind of bleeding. If similar problem persists for another 3-4 months then only it needs to be treated.

Hi I am 24 years old. I eat alot raw rice much does it affect in the body? due to this white water is coming from my vagina. Some times not regularly does it affect in pregnancy?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

It is an abnormal food habit. In medical terminology it is called pica. Raw rice, if it is not properly washed, may have lots of impurities, insects. Moreover eatting lots of them may cause stomach ache, discomfort as they get swelled up in the stomach. Your cause of white discharge is not because of raw rice. It could be due to vaginal infection or may be a normal physiological discharge. To diagnose that an elaborate history is needed. Better, you should consult a gynaecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. In pregnancy excessive discharge is very common and that could be normal but to assure that a doctor's opinion is needed. Because some of the infections of vagina leading to white discharge is harmful for the pregnancy.
