I have an unprotected sex with my girlfriend. How can I prevent her from pregnancy?

Diploma in Hospital Administration, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
In a 28 days Menstrual Cycle, Egg is released on 14th Day(once in a month). 3 days before and 3 days after 14th day (11th to 17th day) is known as Fertile Period. If you avoid these days, you can avoid pregnancy. Other method is called Coitus Interrupts means pulling out genitalia just before Ejaculation of sperm. There are more chance of pregnancy in this method.

Hey, I observed the presence of vaginal discharge almost a month ago and I went for a test! It showed presence of wbcs but no bacteria or yeast or a parasite! I completed the course of antibiotics and still I feel like the infection is not gone! I can still feel vaginal discharge which is very irritating and my urine has a foul smell! I'm really worried! What should I do and what might be the reasons behind it?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
It's a problem only if there is burning vaginal pain during urinatuon or the discharge is mixed with blood or it aggravates during periods which are painful as well or it causes repeated itching. Otherwise all women get some normal discharge, which is physiological and requires some extra hygiene from time to time. You can get a urine routine exam done, wash the area with plain running water after urine, change underwear twice a day and avoid wearing damp underwear.

Lady Finger for Sexual Health

Lady finger Okra is another great natural vegetable that can help your sexual health. It is high in a number of vitamins and also a great source of zinc. As you know zinc deficiency is one of the major sources of erectile problems. 

Mens sexual health

As mentioned above lady finger (okra) is great for improving sexual health. You can stir fry some okra in butter or you can have the root powder of it with a glass of milk and honey. This will help you with your erections as well as give you  sexual stamina.

Women’s Sexual heath

Lady finger is also great for female sexual health. Women who suffer from excessive bleedings during their menstrual cycles or endometriosis can use it for their benefit. Poke holes in two to three okras and put them in a glass of water. Keep them overnight at room temperature and drink the liquid first thing in the morning. Drinking this for a few weeks will help reduce the bleeding during the cycle and also help in other matters of sexual health.

It enhances blood circulation to the whole body which provides glow, shine and natural pinkness to the skin.

Bilateral polycystic ovaries. Impression and show multiple peripherally placed follicles with thick exogenic stroma. This. Is the pelvis scan report. Please tell me what is the abnormality in my daughter report. Scan was advised for her overweight and irregular periods. Please advice. Thank you.

Homeopath, Ernakulam
Polycystic ovary means your daughters overy has many cysts. Usually follicles mature and one ovary burst and ovum is released on 14th day of menstrual cycle. In your daughter's case this follicles does not mature more than 6-7mm, it shows a shape of ring and looks like pearl. And ovulation doesn't happen. This is a hormonal issue. This diseases shows obesity, some has abnormal growth of hair on her chest and face, hair fall, pimples, diabetes, thyroid etc. Cure is possible through homoeopathic medicines but take time. Need to treat this properly so that complications doesn't happen later like infertility etc.

My scan report told that diameter of renal pelvis 7-8 mm in 5th month of pregnancy? What is the meaning of that? Any problem? Will it solve in 7th month pregnancy.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Normally its not worrisome. Get the scan repeated after one month. If the diameter remains same nothing to worry, but if diameter is more than 10 only then after delivery usg will be done on the baby to confirm and further test only if required. Mostly only conservative treatment.

Gm sir on 15 th may my sis got baby n 17 may she died suddenly I thing while feeding milk she slept n not got up now my sister in big trauma n I just want to know now she is getting breast pain due to not feeding what medicine or treatment she can do.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I am very sorry to hear that. Pray that the God give your sister strength to overcome the shock. Yes there are medicine, but you can't get it over the counter, as well as, you should not try without a doctor's supervision. Please consult the gynaecologist who took your sister's care during her antenatal period. She needs counselling and this medicine. Go as soon as possible, otherwise she may develop more breast engorgement and might develop breast abscess. Till medicine is started let her express milk manually. This is just for your knowledge, total 14 days treatment with cabergoline is the drug of choice. It is given 3.5 mg daily for 3 days then 2.5 mg twice daily for 11 days more. (total 14 days). But remember, you must not start the medicine without advice of her doctor because she might have developed psychosis by now, due to shock, and also she need to be examined before starting this medicine.

Exercise for Pregnant Women

Walking during pregnancy is the best cardiovascular exercise. A pregnant women can do it at home or anywhere else. Walking is a great, safe exercise for pregnant women. It’s an ideal way to make sure that you’re getting the exercise you need in pregnancy. Brisk walking works your heart and lungs.

    Start with a short, comfortable stroll and gradually increase the duration of the walk.
    Once you’ve got into the habit of walking regularly, you can build up to faster, 30-minute walking sessions, four or more times a week.
    You can walk for longer than that. Slow down or stop if you feel tired or feel any pain.

Swimming is safe in pregnancy.

    Swimming helps to keep you fit, which will make it easier to adapt to pregnancy.
 Swimming is a particularly good exercise in pregnancy, as the water helps to support your extra weight.
 It’s usually safe for you to swim throughout your pregnancy.

Benefits of swimming:
• improve circulation
• boost heart and lung function
• increase muscle tone and strength
• build endurance
• reduce swelling and fluid retention
• burn calories, which helps to manage weight gain
• promote good sleep.

Yoga in pregnancy
Yoga is a way of life, opt for a beginner’s yoga class that uses a gentle form of yoga.
Wear loose, comfortable, light clothing. Yoga is easier to do if you’re barefoot, so you don’t need any special footwear.
Yoga should be practiced daily. Join regular aerobic exercise too, such as brisk walking or swimming. This will complement your yoga practice and help to develop muscle tone, strength and stamina.


What is pilates?

Pilates makes your body strong, flexible and balanced. It involves a series of movements and positions that help to improve your strength. The movements focus on your tummy, pelvic floor muscles and back muscles, which are all key to good posture, balance and strength. They also help your back and pelvis.
How can pilates help me in pregnancy?
Pilates strengthens your tummy, back and pelvic floor muscles without straining other joints, so it’s a great exercise to do when you’re pregnant. Some research suggests that doing pilates regularly can be as effective as doing pelvic floor exercises.
The main benefit of pilates is that it targets the exact muscles and functions that can be a problem during pregnancy and after birth, in a safe way.

• strengthen your tummy muscles, which equips your body better to cope with the strains caused by the weight of your growing baby.

• strengthen your heart and lungs tone your muscles ease pregnancy aches and pains get a better night’s sleep.

Dear sir, Me and my girlfriend had unsafe sex almost 10 days prior this date. She took i-pill just after the day we had last sex but she haven't got her periods yet Though her date normally starts in middle of the month. How can we know whether she is pregnant or not or is their anything we could do o eliminate the chance of pregnancy after almost two week of sex.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
If she has missed her scheduled period this month after you had sex, then chances of pregnancy should be ruled out. Ask her to do a urine pregnancy test at home. If it's negative you need not worry and just wait fir another week or so for the periods to begin. If the test is positive, without any delay, consult a gynaecologist, get examined and investigated to confirm the exact duration of pregnancy, in order to decide the most safe and effective method of termination, if desired by you both.

Hello doctor, my baby boy of 3 months and 10 days is not take sufficient Brest milk. Though we are trying to feed him several times. In this situation last Monday and Tuesday day I also feed him Nestle Nan pro stage 1. But he is not interest to feed the artificial milk and also suffering constipation. Should I continued to feed him the Nestle Nan Pro 1 or only feed him mothers breast milk.

MD - Paediatrics

Breast milk is the most important and best nutrition you can give to your baby. Breast milk secretion and excretion is controlled by a complex neuro hormonal mechanism. A relaxed and confident brain is all that you need for adequate milk production. During hot summer months take a glass of water before feeding and have a balanced and nutritious diet. If your baby is passing urine regularly and gaining weight then he or she must be getting enough milk.

There are no such medications I am afraid. However you can try reglan tablet 10mg thrice daily for 5 days and see if this helps. This is an antiemetic and is not used for this purpose ; though a few of my patients have benefitted.

I am 34 weeks pregnant. My baby is in breech position. Is normal delivery possible. ?is there any risk?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
A breech birth occurs when a baby is born bottom first instead of head first. Around 3-5% of pregnant women at term (37–40 weeks pregnant) will have a breech baby. Most babies in the breech position are born by a caesarean section because it is seen as safer than being born vaginally.
