Me and my girlfriend were physically contacted on 25 of previous month But we did not have sex but I fingered her I do not know weather my pre-cum was on my finger or not. That incident day was her 4th day of period. She was discharging liquid and some day she noticed that a curd type thick liquid is flowing. Now the liquid flowing is completely stopped. She was saying me that, before 1 day or 2 days of her monthly period she use to discharge some liquid. But now no such symptoms are there. Her next period is 23rd of this month and today is 20th. Is it pregnancy? And one more question that can we test pregnancy on kit before her period? Please help us we are very tensed.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Relax, no need of getting tensed, most likely she will not be pregnant, but in order to confirm, you will need to wait for her due date, and only after she has misses her due date, you can go for a Urine pregnancy test to confirm for pregnancy. Remember stress can also delay her periods by a few days, but preganews will be able to confirm for pregnancy if any. Should you need any further information or advice you may get back to us, we will be happy to help you.

I had Follicular examination on 15th day at 12 pm and one follicle was 22 mm*17 mm. I had hcg injection at 5 pm same day. Again had an examination on 16th day at 1 pm. Follicle was ruptured. Than had iui at 5 pm. But it didn't worked and I got period on 31st day. My regular cycle is of 30 days. I already had laparoscopy which showed all ok in my reproductive system. Husband reports are also normal. Than why I am not getting pregnant?

MBBS, DGO, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Hi,this is called unexplained infertility when everything is normal and still not getting pregnant.The fertilising potential of egg and the sperm cannot be assessed by any means unless you get pregnant.In this situation ovulation induction with medicine to bring out your still more healthy eggs and IUI for few cycles will increase your chances of pregnancy.But get it done with a good doctor with fertility knowledge.

अखरोट, अखरोट के पेड़ का बीज है, जो कि जीनस जुगलों से संबंधित है। ऐतिहासिक रूप से, अखरोट का तेल पेटी, आंतों को शांत करने और दस्त और बवासीर को राहत देने के लिए निर्धारित किया गया था। इसके अलावा लोक उपयोग में रिकेट्स, शीतदंश, और ग्रंथियों की गड़बड़ी का इलाज शामिल है। इसे एक कसैले, टॉनिक पुनस्थापना और निस्संक्रामक के रूप में भी इस्तेमाल किया जाता है।

5. ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड के अलावा जो अनियमित हृदय ताल को रोकता है और रक्त वाहिकाओं में पट्टिका के गठन को नियंत्रित करता है, अखरोट में आवश्यक अमीनो एसिड एल-आर्गिनिन रक्त वाहिकाओं के लोच को सुधारता है। यह विभिन्न अंगों को रक्त की उचित आपूर्ति सुनिश्चित करता है।

One of my friend had sex with his bf now she is afraid that she is pregnant . what should she do?

EMDR, FRCOG (LONDON) (Fellow of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), MFSRH , Diploma in psychosexual therapy, Medical diploma in clinical Hypnosis, Diploma in Evidence Based Healthcare, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Thank you for your question. The commonest side effect of unprotected intercourse is a sexually transmitted infection followed by unwanted pregnancy. If your friend thinks she is pregnant she needs to do a pregnancy test with an early morning sample of her urine. If it is positive and she does not wish to be pregnant she needs to see a gynaecologist who can discuss the options for termination of pregnancy. Termination of pregnancy can only be carried out by a licenced medical practitioner in a government recognized center for termination of pregnancy. She will need to have an ultrasound examination and attend the hospital to complete the paperwork before any procedure can be carried out. If her pregnancy test is negative she can wait for 15 days for her period to come. If the period does not come and the test is still negative she should see the gynaecologist for further examination and tests. Regarding contraception, if she is likely to continue to be sexually active she needs to discuss her contraceptive choices with the gynaecologist and choose a method which suits her. This needs to be used in addition to condoms. Condoms are very good at preventing infections if used correctly but are often associated with a higher failure rate relating to unwanted pregnancies. Hope this helps best wishes.

I have sex problem with my girlfriend. She doesn't let me touch her puss st so please suggest me so that you can fuck her.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Failing to do Foreplay can ruin mood or leave you unsatisfied. Sex without foreplay means you’re not taking your needs into consideration, because foreplay is much more important to women than to men. Foreplay is a set of emotionally and physically intimate acts between couple meant to create sexual arousal and desire for sexual activity. Vagina secretes natural lubricating solution which is secreted by bartholin's gland. Foreplay also helps in secreting natural lubricant which will improve sex life.

This is the time when every woman goes through a change, due to decline in hormones and periods gradually stop, risk of heart attack is more, bones start getting hollow due to depletion of calcium, eyes weak, some amount of mental changes like depression, gain in weight. Get an ultrasound abdomen done, basic tests for heart like ecg, halter test and blood test for sugar, lipid profile done. Let her work like a normal woman but no sleeping tabs, if she is going for walks, doing yoga, taking a healthy diet, her weight will not increase and she will sleep well. Do write back the details of gyne problems if any!

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Sir periods miss hone ke kitne din bat excet result ke lia test karna chaiyee or jab tak test nahi kerte tab tak pregnancy ka symptoms keya hai?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS

Hello, ideally the urine pregnancy test should be done after 8 days post missed periods to get a confirmatory result. Till then symptoms may be nausea, vomiting, headache, mil lower abdominal ache and mood swings but these can overlap with the premenstrual symptoms as well so best is to get a urine pregnancy test for confirmation of pregnancy.

M having sex with my partner but there is no penetration and also there is no sperm, kindly advice how I will able to penetrate and how many day we should hve sex in order to conceive baby.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
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. If you want to make her pregnant fast then 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. But you need to have penetration to get her pregnant. If there is a long standing issue then you should get her examined from a gynecologist.

Endometrial Scratching and IVF - Can it Help You Get Pregnant?

Multispecilaity IVF Clinic
IVF Specialist, Gurgaon
Endometrial Scratching and IVF - Can it Help You Get Pregnant?

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a medical procedure followed for those women or couples suffering from infertility or for certain specific genetic problem. In the normal course, women or couples experience positive results within a few IVF cycles. However, in spite of reasonable pregnancy rates, some women may require few more cycles to achieve pregnancy. In such cases, in order to ensure a healthy pregnancy, the gynecologist may suggest the women undergo Endometrial Scratching before IVF. 

Endometrium explained in brief: 

The uterus is located in the pelvic region and it is in the size and shape of a pear. The inner cavity of the womb or uterus is protected by the tissue lining called endometrium, also called endometrial. The endometrium plays a significant role in supporting the pregnancy. 

The enhanced success of achieving pregnancy: 

The endometrial scratching procedure is a very simple one, which is resorted, so as to improve the results of IVF procedure. In this procedure, the gynecologist uses a very fine catheter and makes a small scratch on the endometrial lining. In fact, the scratch causes a kind of inflammatory reaction in the uterus. This inflammatory reaction induces the endometrium to be highly receptive to embryos during the successive menstrual cycle. This added receptivity enhances the success of pregnancy during the next menstrual cycle. 

Considering the higher level of success in achieving pregnancy, the endometrial scratching procedure has gained popularity in the IVF procedure. However, some of the other issues related to endometrial scratching may be as follows: 

  1. Endometrial scratching optimises the uterine lining and thereby, makes it easier to continue the embryo implanting procedure. Normally, before the endometrial scratching procedure, the gynecologist may suggest endometrial biopsy. 
  2. The endometrial procedure is usually suggested for those women who had two or more unsuccessful IVF procedures, despite having good quality embryos. However, in some cases, depending on the health of the patient and various other factors, the gynecologist may suggest this endometrial scratching at the very first IVF procedure. This procedure can be availed either for fresh embryos of the couple or frozen embryos or for the donor egg. 
  3. Although this is a part of a surgical procedure; endometrial scratching is very simple and painless and it is done without administering anesthesia. The procedure does not require any hospitalisation. In fact, the patient can go home soon after the procedure. Except for a few pain killers, this procedure does not require any extensive medication. 

This is a safe and easy procedure. Neither does it lead to any side effects, nor is the procedure burdensome for your wallet. Many couples have been benefited by this endometrial scratching procedure. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
