Usually between 11 and 14 weeks blood test and scan will be done to rule out Down syndrome in the baby. It is a genetic test which is done routinely nowadays irrespective of the family history or not. Please contact your doctor and get it scheduled.

Abdominal pain could be due to various reasons, like constipation, dyspepsia, uti, or in worst cases preterm labour or placental separation. You should get an ultrasound pelvis done to check for foetal viability.

I am 28 years old women. Before 4 years I took a surgery for lump on my right breast. At the same time a tiny lumps on my left breast too. I took needle biopsy to the both breast at that time. The result is normal. The biopsy result of right breast is also normal. After 6 months of surgery I got married and delivers a child before our first anniversary. My left breast lump is become larger during this period. Am i suspect the left breast lump cancer. I am afraid to a medical examine. Please give me a clarification.

Hi, it is normal for benign breast lumps to enlarge rapidly during pregnancy. They usually don't turn into cancer. They enlarge secondary to the hormonal changes durimg that time and may regress back later. But if you still have a large persistent lump, please do consult a surgeon in person as a clinical examination will reveal a lot more. And if needed you can get it removed. Most importantly, your doubt regardin cancer will be clarified. Hope his helps. Take care.

IVF or IUI - Which One Should You Opt for?

IVF or IUI - Which One Should You Opt for?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) are two commonly used methods of fertility treatment, which increase a couple’s chance of becoming pregnant.

The Procedure

IUI- IUI is a procedure during which processed and concentrated motile sperm are inserted directly into a woman’s uterus. This procedure is timed according to a woman’s ovulation, and may be performed one to two times in the days immediately following the detection of ovulation. After ovulation a woman’s egg is picked up by the fallopian tube and waits there for the sperm. Since the IUI procedure deposits higher concentrations of good quality sperm close to where the egg is waiting, the chances that the egg and sperm will find one another are increased.

IVF- IVF is the most successful method of fertility treatment utilized today to help couples to conceive. The basic components of the IVF process include stimulation of the ovaries to produce multiple eggs at a time, removal of the eggs from the ovary (egg retrieval), fertilization of the eggs in the laboratory, and subsequent placement of the resulting embryos into the uterus (embryo transfer). The chance of pregnancy from IVF depends primarily on the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and factors related to the quality of the IVF laboratory.

Success Rates

IUI Treatment: There is a marked difference between IVF and IUI pregnancy rates. IUI has a success rate between 5% and 20%, but it can even be as low as 1-2 %, depending on the woman’s age and fertility levels. The chances of conceiving through IUI is higher if fertility drugs are administered along with the treatment.

IVF Treatment: IVF has a high success rate – between 20% and 35% and it can even go as high as 40%. This may not seem like a lot, but it is very high, considering that an average young and fertile couple has only a 15-20% chance to conceive in a month. It is important to understand what IVF and IUI success rates mean and the factors that affect it before deciding on a fertility treatment. You can also use any reliable online IUI vs IVF comparison tool to determine your approximate success rates with each of these treatments, depending on your age, lifestyle, and medical history.

You should use online sources of information to understand more about fertility problems, how age affects fertility levels, and whether freezing your eggs is a good option for you. However, discuss all these issues with your doctor to ensure that you have the right information and that you have understood it correctly. Fertility specialists provide you with personalized fertility plans based on your health which is why you should always talk to them before you make any decision.

If you want to discuss any other problem, Consult IVF Specialist.

Menopause is defined as the state of an absence of menstrual periods for 12 months. The average age of menopause is 51 years old, but menopause may occur as early as the 30s or as late as the 60s. There is no reliable lab test to predict when a woman will experience menopause.

I have two daughters and want a son now, but am unwilling to adopt sex determination or abortion. Please advise.

MBBS, DGO, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Sex determination is illegal in india according to pcpndt act. Also abortion purely on the basis of sex selection is not permissible. Save girl child. Say no to sex determination. There are lot many people who may guarantee you sex selection through various means but its all a myth. All of female eggs are x. And male eggs are x and y. When xx its a girl and when xy its a boy. So its matter of pure luck and chance. No one is at fault.

I always suffer from pain in periods. Wat should I do. I take medicins but I think thats not good.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
I always suffer from pain in periods. Wat should I do. I take medicins but I think thats not good.
* The reason of stomach pain during periods is due to contractions of uterus ( functioning of muscles of uterus ) . * Breast pain before periods is normal . It occurs due to change in hormonal level before periods . * Reason of vomiting during periods is due to blood loss and due to function of uterus muscles. Follow these methods for relief: * Put a warm water bottle on your lower abdomen ( area below the stomach ) firstly spread towel or any cloth then put the bottle on it. * Do massage with lukewarm mustard oil on lower abdomen area ( below the stomach ) and back daily . * Take 1/3 piece of ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of ajwain boil both these in one glass of water when 1/2 glass water remains then drink it . When you drink add one teaspoon of sugar in it. • Do not skip meal during periods . if you feel nausea and vomiting drink 2 teaspoon of Glucone D in one glass of water or drink a cup of tea . • Take rest properly and avoid heavy work during period days. Do not lift heavy material on periods days and before 7 days from periods coming date . • Do some exercises such as jogging or running and fast walking . Stop these before one week of periods coming date. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink a glass of milk daily this will make you healthier.

Hi Can a doctor can assess antral follicle count on day 32 of periods? when an antral follicle count should be measured?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Antral follicles are small follicles (about 2-9 mm in diameter) that we can see - and measure and count - with ultrasound. Antral follicles are also referred to as resting follicles. Vaginal ultrasound is the best way to accurately assess and count these small structures. Antral follicle counts (along with female age) are by far the best tool that we currently have for estimating ovarian reserve, the expected response to ovarian stimulating drugs, and the chance for successful pregnancy with in vitro fertilization. The number of antral follicles visible on ultrasound is indicative of the number of microscopic (and sound asleep) primordial follicles remaining in the ovary. Each primordial follicle contains an immature egg that can potentially develop and ovulate in the future. When there are only a few antral follicles visible, there are far fewer eggs remaining as compared to when there are more antrals. As women age, they have less eggs (primordial follicles) remaining and they have fewer antral follicles.

Hello, yes it can be cured. But can you please ask her to consult me once. It is important. It happens due to hormonal imbalance which are over-ruled by emotions and environment around her she is living. So need to correct it, so just consult just at least once for your betterment. And please do not take any hormonal pills to bring menses for that. It leads to obesity after 1-1.5 yrs. Take care.:)

I am 26 year old married girl. My breast became huge after pregnancy. How can I reduce.
REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY- is the treatment,it is surgical reduction of breast size with very gratifying results attained in a very short time.Surgery takes 2 hours and you may not need to be hospitalised more than a day. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary.There is no medication to give the results.Surgery is the only answer.The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.

If you happen to have sex on regular basis and don't want the risk of even accidental pregnancy, condoms are not reliable mode of contraception. I- pill is an emergency contraceptive and must be used judiciously. Its better to resort to more efficient modes of contraception like OCPills (if you want to delay 1st pregnancy, or intrauterine contraceptive devices like multiload or Copper T (if you want spacing between two pregnancies. Hormonal injections like DMPA and implants are other equally reliable options. As far as torn condom is concerned, chances of pregnancy depend on the fertile period. If your wife is in fertile period you may opt for I-Pill, but don't make it a habit as I-pill can hv serious side effects.

Dear lybrate user, sometimes periods can get delayed due to such pills. And next few periods can be irregular. Usually these rapid tests are reliable, but not 100%. Although periods can get delayed, but that doesn't mean you ll just sit and wait for them. You should undergo an ultrasound of lower abdomen (better tvs. That will clear the picture and we can plan what to do further. Don't take any medicine right now
