Yes you can have all activities while ovulation period. It does not prevent you from getting pregnant. 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. 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 considered as fertile period.

All About Uterine Prolapse

All About Uterine Prolapse

Your uterus is held in place by ligaments, tissues and pelvic muscles. The prolapse occurs when the ligaments or muscles weaken, and thus they can no longer support the uterus. The uterus slips or sags from its usual position into the birth canal (vagina).

Uterine prolapse could be complete or incomplete:

  • If the uterus partly sags into the vagina, the prolapse is incomplete.
  • If the uterus falls, and tissues are found to be resting in the vagina's exterior, the prolapse is termed 'complete'

Type of Prolapse:

  1. Cystocele: It is characterized by the herniation (bulging) of the vaginal wall caused by the bladder; it leads to urination problems
  2. Enterocele: It is characterized by the bulging on the vaginal wall caused by the bowel; it leads to backache
  3. Rectocele: If the rectum pushes into the vaginal wall, it makes movement in bowels difficult

Causes:
Uterine prolapse can be caused by any of the following factors:

  • Normal childbirth through the vagina weakens muscles
  • Pelvic muscles weaken with age
  • Tissues weaken after menopause and oestrogen loss
  • Chronic cough, constipation, pelvic tumours or abdominal fluid accumulation puts a lot of pressure on the abdomen leading to prolapse
  • Pelvic muscles are stressed if you are obese or overweight
  • Major pelvic (or areas around it) surgery leads to loss of muscular support
  • Smoking
  • Excessive weight lifting causes weakening of muscles

Symptoms:
Symptoms of uterine prolapse depend on its severity. There are no symptoms or signs if you have mild uterine prolapse. But if you have moderate to severe uterine prolapse, you might experience the following symptoms:

  1. Sensation of pulling or heaviness in the pelvis
  2. Tissue bulges out of your vagina
  3. Urinary problems like urine retention or urine leakage
  4. Bowel movement difficulties
  5. Pain in lower back
  6. Sexual problems such as vaginal tissues feeling loose

Symptoms might feel less distressing during the morning, but they worsen at night. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Even you became pregnant with yesterday's sex, you will not come to know untill missed period. Whatever symptoms you r having are not the symptoms of pregnancy. Even if you have used condom, you should take i-pill immediately to be 100% sure that you will not get pregnant. That light yellow discharge is temporary and will stop without any treatment.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user. Infertility in pcod is not a problem that can be solved only with these two medicines instead it requires first knowing the exact cause of your infertility that means even pcod can affect your infertility in various ways. Second proper monitoring of the follicle at different stages is required, followed by the fact that the gynecologist has to give you proper information about timing of intercourse and then so on .so kindly get urself enrolled with a gynecologist in your area and get detailed information, counselling and planning about the same. Ovral is an oral contraceptive which can be used for regularising your periods but it prevents pregnancy as being a contraceptive agent. So take care and go ahead.

Initially during 3 months women do eat less and may be it's way of nature to avoid certain toxic foods in our kitchens. She will. Pick up gradually and during last 3 months there will be demand for 2 and she will eat at midnight too. Give her lots of simple proteins, milk and curds and boiled eggs if she likes. Green vegetables of her choice. Tablet of iron plus folic acid and some multivitamin plus calcium. Do encourage her to do routine household work as it build up appetite too. Do write back after a month about her progress and do take her for regular antenatals specially get bp, and urine tested for sugar and albumin, get cbc done to know hb and infection anywhere in the body and blood tests done for sugar.

Treating Backache and Neck Pain With Homoeopathy

A pain in the neck or back can restrict movements and hamper your lifestyle. These are both common pains that may or may not be a symptom of a more serious illness. Neck pain can be caused by a number of factors including stress, whiplash, inflammatory infections, mechanical disorders and metabolic disorders. The main causes for a backache are vertebral column diseases, spinal cord infections, abnormal posture, heavy lifting etc.

Homeopathy is one of the most holistic forms of treatment that can be used to treat pain in the neck or back. Homeopathic treatment has no side effects and is based on individual mental and physical symptoms showcased. Homeopathy do not address the pain itself but treats the underlying cause thus ensuring that it does not recur.

Some common homeopathic remedies for neck pain and backaches are:

  1. Calcarea Flour: This is used to treat pains that arise from the hardening of cervical glands. Such pain tends to deteriorate in cold weather and worsens when the patient is lying down. Heat can be soothing to such backaches and neck pains.
  2.  Bryonia: This is used typically to treat backaches that are worsened by any movement and for a stiff back. This sort of back ache is often relieved by resting or lying on a hard surface.
  3. Arnica: Arnica is an excellent remedy for pains that follow an injury. When it comes to backaches and neck pains it can be used to treat soreness and straining of ligaments. It is also beneficial against the feeling of being bruised.
  4. Fluoric acid: This can be used to treat rigidity and a feeling of stiffness around the nape of the neck. Such pain is often associated with numbness of the neck and forearm.
  5. Hypericum: This is a useful homeopathic remedy for compressed injuries and nerve pain. It can be used to treat back aches caused by disc compression, canal stenosis, myelopathy and radiculopathy. Hypericum can also be used to treat jerking muscles.
  6. Kali carb: If your back feels weak and you experience sharp pains, Kali carb may be help alleviate your pain. Such pain is usually associated with a burning sensation and causes excessive sweating. Kali carb is also suited to treating backaches during pregnancy. You can also take the package for Reducing Joint/Muscle Pains.

Along with medication, try maintaining a good posture to help reduce neck pains and backaches. Avoid lifting heavy weights and travelling long distances. Applying hot and cold packs over the area can also help reduce the intensity of the pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopathy and ask a free question.

Hi, I think you should be in contact every 2 to 3 days after her periods stop. It will increase chances of pregnancy. Otherwise you can use the ovulation detection kits from day 11 onwards. Be in contact when ovulation happens. Hope I have answered your question.
