Hello, according to your history, you can put a small pillow under buttocks during intercourse and don't get up for at least half an hour after the intercourse. Your weight is on higher side. Try to reduce your weight also (about 5 kgs). Make it a point that you are certainly with your husband during middle of the menstrual cycle. Do it for 3 months, and you should get pregnant.

If left untreated, hypothyroidism can progress and cause a multitude of complications. Understanding the symptoms of hypothyroidism and getting regular screenings to ensure an early diagnosis will prevent the onset of the complications listed below. Birth defects if you are pregnant and have an untreated thyroid disorder, your child may have a higher risk of having birth defects than babies born to healthy mothers. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disorders may have significant mental and physical development issues because thyroid hormones are vital for brain development. Fortunately, if these problems are addressed shortly after the birth, the child may experience healthy development. An abbreviated thyroid function test is part of the newborn screen. This usually includes a panel of blood tests performed on a newborn to exclude diseases. Goiter when your thyroid over exerts itself in an effort to produce an adequate amount of hormones, the excessive stimulation may cause the thyroid glan.

Me and my girlfriend in the mid of june had non penetrative sexual making out with skin contacts and with some very little traces of sperm near and around the lower abdomen. She had her last period on 2nd June (After a 40 days cycle) and its been 40 days (12th July, till now she haven't got her periods. We are totally stressed up on whats happening? And is it possible for a person to get pregnant without penetration as illustrated in certain internet websites? Is it practically possible? Hav you came across any patients f such cases?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
She will not get pregnant unless you had some penetrative sex, even the clear liquid which comes before ejaculation carries active sperms. Simplest method to confirm is to get a pregnancy test done from early morning urine sample. The kit is available in any medical shop, you can buy one for her. All the best.

Male Infertility: Causes, Treatment And Prevention

Infertility affects approximately 1 out of every 6 couples. An infertility diagnosis is given to a couple who are unable to conceive over the course of one year. When the problem lies with the male partner it is referred to as male infertility. Male infertility factors contribute to  approximately 30% of all infertility cases, and male infertility alone accounts for approximately one-fifth of all infertility cases.

There are four main causes of infertility in males:

A hypothalamic or pituitary disorder (1-2%)

Gonad disorder (30-40%)

Sperm transport disorder (10-20%)

Unknown causes (40-50%)

if there's no swellings, if there's no albumin in urine, bp can be controlled and you can be tried for normal delivery using painless mode by giving epidural injections. weight of baby is not low, it's average. if you get good natural pains, mouth of uterus starts to open up with baby descending down slowly, wish you a normal delivery with controlled bp.

Hepatitis Prevention and Protection Guide: World Hepatitis Day

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Hepatitis Prevention and Protection Guide: World Hepatitis Day
Hepatitis Prevention and Protection Tips

Viral Hepatitis can invade the body and attack the liver systems. It has five different types, Hepatitis A, B, C, D and E. While hepatitis can be treated, it is best to prevent it in the first place.
Here are some simple, easy to follow tips that can prevent hepatitis from spreading.
1) Know how it spreads - Hepatitis can pass from individual to individual or through blood, body fluids, infected faeces. Contaminated food and water can also cause hepatitis. Hepatitis B, C and D in particular spread through contact with infected blood.

2) Get Vaccinations - Immunization can help you protect yourself against Hepatitis A and B. Vaccinations for Hepatitis C, D or E aren’t available. But Hepatitis C can be cured with anti-viral medications. For Hepatitis D, the infected person needs to get Hepatitis B to survive.

3) Avoid Sharing Personal Items - Don’t share as it is a high-risk behaviour for Hepatitis. Be sure that needles for body piercings, acupuncture and tattooing are safe and disposable to avoid the risk of contamination.

4) Avoid Sharing Grooming Items- If you are living with someone who has or is at risk of Hepatitis, make sure that you avoid sharing grooming items as undetectable quantities of blood or other bodily fluids on razors and toothbrushes can lead to spread of virus.

5) Alcohol and Drugs - Hepatitis is a high risk among people who use excessive alcohol and over the counter medications. Liver inflammation and liver damage puts individual at risk of contracting Hepatitis and therefore, alcohol or prescription drugs and herbal supplements must be avoided and taken only after physician’s consultation.

6) When Travelling- Avoid eating raw fruits, vegetables and raw shellfish, avoid eating at unhygienic places, brush teeth and rinse mouth with clean water, avoid iced drinks or adding ice to the drinks while traveling to avoid contracting the condition.

Finally, you might have a pH balance in the vagina that is easily changed, even by the act of sex, and that can lead to infections and other problems that cause your vaginal area to swell. If you have a history of getting yeast infections or urinary tract infections after sex, this might be the problem.

What is fibroadenoma? Is this any serious health issue? What should be done to git rid of this?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
A fibroadenoma is a non-cancerous tumor in the breast that is commonly found in women under the age of 30. The exact cause of fibroadenomas is not known. Hormones such as estrogen may play a part in the growth and development of the tumors. Taking oral contraceptives before the age of 20 has been associated with a higher risk of developing fibroadenomas.

Bleeding for such a many days is really a topic to worry. Excessive bleeding may cause anaemia and even may lead to death. Proper history is needed for diagnosis.
