Is it safe to have sex when wife is pregnant of 9 weeks. Also advise safe sex positions.

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Yes "Missionary" position If you try missionary position after the first trimester, wedge a pillow under you so you're tilted, not flat on your back. And make sure your partner supports himself so his weight isn't on your belly. 3 / 9 You on top This position can work throughout your pregnancy. Straddle your partner as he lies on his back. That way, there'll be no weight on your abdomen and you can control the depth of penetration. 4 / 9 Side-by-side, from behind Lie with your partner facing your back and entering from behind. Keep some pillows handy for extra support as your pregnancy progresses. Penetration tends to be shallower in this position. That's a good thing, because deep thrusts can become uncomfortable in later months. 5 / 9 From behind, doggy style Support yourself on your knees and elbows as your partner kneels and enters from behind. A pillow can provide needed tummy support. Advertisement 6 / 9 Side-by-side, at an angle You each lie on your side, your bodies creating a V-shape. Wedge a pillow under your back for support as you face your partner, and rest both legs over his hip. This position allows him to keep most of his weight off your belly. 7 / 9 On a chair Straddle your partner as he sits on a sturdy chair. Position the chair near a wall or another piece of furniture to lean on when you're ready to get up from this position. 8 / 9 Edge of the bed Shift your bottom to the side or foot of the bed and lie back with your knees bent. (After the first trimester, wedge a pillow under one side so you're not completely flat on your back.) Depending on the height of the bed, your partner can kneel or stand. 9 / 9 When intercourse is out If sex with penetration is uncomfortable, you and your partner may want to find other ways to be intimate. Find out whether it's safe during pregnancy to use a lubricant, use a vibrator, receive oral sex, and more.

6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

Infertility is a very common problem among both men and women and it refers to the inability to conceive even after regular unprotected sex. The causes of this can be varied and some of the most prominent ones are:

Causes in Women:

1. Polycystic ovarian syndrome - PCOS is a medical condition in women in which they do not ovulate. It is a major cause of infertility in most women. It can often result in irregular menstruation and an increase in the release of male hormones in the female body. This causes male symptoms like the growth of a beard, hoarse voice etc. in females. The probable causes of this condition comprise being over or under weight, thyroid imbalance etc. It is possible to treat this condition with medical aid and weight management can also prove to be helpful.

2. Lack of sufficient healthy eggs - As you grow in age, the number and health of your eggs decline significantly. This could be a possible reason for your infertility. In this condition, optimizing egg health by maintaining a healthy weight and quitting alcohol and cigarettes can help you get rid of your infertility.

3. Blockage of the fallopian tubes - Blockage of or damage to the fallopian tubes causes the tubal factor that is responsible for infertility in women. The tubal factor can also be a result of endometriosis or any sexually transmitted disease like Chlamydia etc.

Causes in Men:

1. Ejaculatory disorders - Retrograde ejaculation, premature ejaculation, and other issues associated with ejaculation may cause infertility in men. In retrograde ejaculation, the semen enters the bladder instead of emerging out of the penis during orgasm. In premature ejaculation, the ejaculation occurs before the vagina is prepared to receive the semen.

2. Chromosome defects - Disorders like Klinefelter's syndrome can cause abnormal growth of the male reproductive organs resulting in infertility. Other such syndromes include Kallmann's syndrome, Karatagener's syndrome, cystic fibrosis etc. These conditions are mostly genetic.

3. Hormonal imbalance - Male infertility can also be a result of hormonal imbalances like hypogonadism (low testosterone levels), disorders of the testicles, abnormal functioning of the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and the other glands as well.

Hi lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. It seems you have developed some vaginal infection. It's best if you visit a gynaecologist for an internal examination and prescription. Pope antibiotics along with local vaginal treatment should help you out. All the best.

Do you think if a women orgasms and satisfied first by lets say a minute before the guy, that she lowers her chances on becoming pregnant or higher chances, and in fertile days if white discharge comes during and after orgasms and satisfaction then how much chances of conceiving?

It is not the timing of the orgasm, rather it is the timing of the fertile days, which raises the chance of pregnancy. White discharge is not directly related to the chance of conceiving.

10 Foods That'll Keep You Healthy This Summer

M.B.B.S., D.M.C.H.
General Physician, Alwar
10 Foods That'll Keep You Healthy This Summer
Come summer and the vegetable stands in the markets start looking different. The green vegetables are replaced by fruits and vegetables that grow in the heat and have higher water content themselves. Here is a list of foods that will keep you hydrated and energetic during the draining summer heat.

1) Watermelon - Watermelons have more water than pulp and are easily available. Not only will this relax you but also hydrates you at the end of a very tiring day.

2) Cucumber - With less than 20 calories in a cup of cucumbers, this hydrating food is ideal to carry with lunch boxes to work, or eat at home. They cool and hydrate you at the same time. The seeds are also known to be high in nutrients and health benefits.

3) Tomatoes - Tomatoes and their health benefits are widely known. They cool your stomach and hydrate you. Tomatoes are also good for diabetes and cardio-vascular problems, and are a rich source of many nutrients like dietary fiber, vitamins ? C, A, E, K and B6, potassium and many more.

4) Lemon - Lemon is a super food. Mixed with water, in different temperatures, it helps in weight loss to combating dehydration. Mixed in water with a pinch of salt and a spoonful of sugar, the lemon water mixture is known to cool, energise and hydrate the body.

5) Curd - This is a staple in most Indian homes. Store bought or homemade, it is good to eat a small bowl full of curd every day. A delicious coolant, you can spice it up any way you wish to - by adding fruits to it, or by adding masalas or by eating it straight with just a tiny pinch of salt.

6) Coconut water - Easily available on road sides, coconut water is your ideal drink on the go. While you can surely have it at home, it is highly recommended for students and professionals who are out in the sun, during the day. An immediate energizer, coconut water can be your savior from heat spells.

7) Melons - Just like watermelons, melons and muskmelons too have high water content. The fruit is said to have 90 percent water apart from the nutrients.

8) Buttermilk - Easy to make and easily available in the market, buttermilk can be customized as per individual taste. It is light in the tummy, cools and dehydrates the system.

9) Mint - An inexpensive herb, mint has amazing cooling qualities. Churn it into chutney or just drop a few leaves into your bottle of drinking water, these leaves will keep your insides cool and mind fresh with their mild fragrance.

10) Onions - Red onions in particular are known to have very high water content. Include them in your meals or have them raw, how you eat is up to you.

Lmp was 24.2. 16 but after taking a heavy dose of hormonal medicine that is also used to make heavy periods lighter. You will get a delayed cycle for sure if pregnancy test is negative now, but do not take more hormones to stimulate the cycle, as it is a routine practice to do so, do not take any tensions / stress -another common factor for delay in cycle. By the way feb had 29 days!

Firstly this medication should be taken after consulting a doctor and any ultrasound. Don't double the dose without visiting your gynaecologist as you may end up in incomplete abortion by self medication.

If I suck her vagina and anus then anything harmful of doing oral sex? Means any case of diseases in throat or anything?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Anal sex is not healthy at all. It increases the risk of infections due to the high number of infectious microorganisms. Also it causes physical damage to the anus and rectum due to their fragility. It carries a higher risk of passing on sexually transmitted infections because the anal sphincter is a delicate, easily torn tissue that can provide an entry for pathogens.
