Hi lybrate-user, she could be pregnant. If pregnancy is their is heaviness in breast, heaviness in body, nausea, altered mouth test. Ask her to get urine pregnancy test with kit which is easy to do. If she can do blood test called serum bhcg that will be better.

Please note the following in respect to your queries: The linea nigra can appear due to the melanin increasing from an increase in hormones. This is most common in pregnancy due to the high levels of estrogen, but being on birth control that contains estrogen can also cause the melanin to increase. Melanin may also increase in cases of adrenal insufficiency or failure, known as Addison’s disease. This can cause a linea nigra and darkening of skin in other areas. This condition needs to be tested, diagnosed and treated right away to avoid complications.

Hi, pain lower abdomen with frequent urination is commonly indicates urinary infection but can also be due to irritability of uterus. So take extra rest and get done your 1- urine complete examination 2- urine for culture & sensitivity of causative organism. As report of culture takes 72 hrs, so you can start - 1- cap. Zifi 200 mg, bd 2- oricitral suspension, 1 tsp. Four times a day with full glass of water drink plenty of fluids e. G. Water, lassi, coconut water, lemon water but not aerated drinks / packed juices. Continue with duphaston, this is to protect pregnancy when you recieve your urine culture report, send immediately to me or show to your doctor. Meanwhile check your temp. Regularly, if any fever, inform me or your doctor.

Weight management tips to enhance your fertility

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Weight management tips to enhance your fertility
The number of young overweight women and men seeking medical assistance for planning family is on a rise. Being overweight not only affects ones’ chances of becoming a parent, but also can lead to complications in pregnancy- adversely affecting both mother and baby. Therefore, it is very important for all young men and women to know the fundamentals of causation and detection of this important disorder.

What is Obesity and how to confirm that?

The most often asked questions in this context are- what is a normal acceptable weight, when does one get labelled as overweight and what is the definition of obesity? Another important question we often get asked is- what’s the difference between being overweight and obese?

In very simple terms, what a physician evaluates to check for obesity in a person is a simple index known as “body mass Index” or BMI. BMI can be calculated by simply dividing the person’s body weight in Kg by the square of person’s height measured in meters. BMI is measured as Kg/m2. Following are broad guidelines for detection of obesity-
1. BMI of < 18.5 indicates that the person is underweight
2. BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 indicates that the person has got normal weight
3. BMI between 25 and 29.9 indicates that the person is overweight
4. BMI of > 30 indicates obesity

How does Obesity affect fertility?

Excessive body weight in women causes multiple hormonal imbalances, which can result in irregular menstruation and reduced frequency of ovulation, thus leading to infertility. Also, the outcome of Infertility treatment in obese women is poorer than in their normal weight counterparts. Obesity also increases the chances of pregnancy related complications such as miscarriage, pregnancy induced hypertension and gestational diabetes and hence increases the requirement offers cesarean delivery. And not to forget that the labor is that much harder and prolonged for obese women.

Obese males also suffer from reduced fertility as they tend to have lower level of testosterone, which suppresses sperm production. Obesity can also case erectile dysfunction in men, which can result in reduced fertility.

What can you do?

Here are five easy weight management tips to help you realize your dream of having a child-
1. Watch your meals- take a healthy diet and avoid excess carbohydrates and fat
2. Watch your beverages- drink adequate quantity of water, avoid soft drinks as they contain empty calories and refrain from alcohol
3. Stop smoking and keep in mind that there is nothing like occasional/ moderate smoking
4. Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle- short sessions of brisk walking, swimming, jogging or skipping are good means to keep one active and healthy
5. Avoid stress and practice Yoga/ meditation or other stress buster techniques that suit you

Yes you can do it. Achieving orgasm in this stage of pregnancy is not harmful. You can have sex also. Sex can be practiced during pregnancy. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practiced in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus.

Hi I have a pcos problem and I am married for 2 years. We tried naturally for one month but I did not conceived. So second month we consulted a doctor she kept me on clomifene citrate 50 mg from 3-9 days. And she gave a hcg shot on 14th day of my cycle. And we had timely intercourse but unfortunately I got my periods after taking gestofit. So the doctor advised me to have SSG test done. But I was not ready for that as we planned pregnancy only one month back. So we consulted another doc and she kept me on clomifene citrate 100 mg from day 4-8 and forminal for 30 days and weekly vit D supplement. So please tell me what are the chances of my successful pregnancy this time. Is SSG test necessary?

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle i.e. Ovulation day which happens naturally in most but some need treatment for same. You are being treated to bring about ovulation. However it is not only ovulation but other factors simultaneously should be ok like Husband's semen, proper intercourse, open tubes. Either Gynecologist checks for all assumes to be normal. It needs patience for such treatment.
