There 80-90% chances of having a normal pregnancy after ectopic in order to avoid ectopic in next pregnancy you should get investigated for the causes of ectopic after 6 weeks. Next time when you miss your period you should go for an early usg and hcg test.

Hi lybrate-user, there are ways to get over azoospermia and still conceive a baby. In fact, many a times in cases with diagnosed azoospermia, there still are some good sperms in the body which can be retrieved using simple interventions and used to fertilize the eggs. This, however, happens outside the human body. The embryos thus formed are then transferred back in the women's uterus for a normal pregnancy.

Dear user. Female vagina is elastic. You should always go for 10 minutes of foreplay before inserting your penis. That will ease the pain. Take care.

U start ayurvedic medicines for irregular periods and for follicles if you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. You? re most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it? s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there? s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it? s released. Any queries consult privately.

Hi! if urine test and hcg, both are negative, you are not pregnant. Scanty periods could be due to certain infections or hormonal issues. You need to undergo some blood tests and ultrasound for further evaluation. Take care!

Trouble Conceiving? Think of IVF

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG)
Gynaecologist, Alwar
Trouble Conceiving? Think of IVF

Facing trouble conceiving? 3 Reasons you should consider IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation)

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medical procedure that side-steps the sexual act of conceiving and helps infertile couples, conceive a biological child. It involves the manual process of fertilization by combining an egg and sperm in the laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the female to impregnate her.

The inability to give birth through the natural way is caused due to complications like: blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS, endometriosis: where parts of the womb lining grow out of the womb, premature ovarian failure and so on.

If you or your partner is having trouble conceiving, you should opt for in vitro fertilization. It holds benefits like-

1. High success rates: Women who underwent in vitro fertilisation using fresh embryos of their own fresh eggs, the projected live birth percentage was 32.2% for those under 35 years, 27.7% for women aged between 35 and 37 years, lowering to 5.0% in 43 to 44 year olds and 1.9% for ages above 45. It has been proved that a female’s ability to conceive decreases with age. If infertility is detected at a younger age, the process of IVF is highly advantageous and successfully results in childbirth.

2. Proven track record: Technology has come a long way since the first baby via IVF Louise Brown was born in 1978 using a natural IVF. Medical techniques have advanced to create safer and successful treatment. The usage of the safest forms of IVF with low drug regimens today, have prevented side effects such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

3. Harvests multiple eggs: If you are planning to have more than one child, via IVF you can freeze multiple eggs for future use. Unused or spare embryos can be donated to medical organisations for research purposes or to another couple willing to have a child. IVF has proven successful in giving couples a wholesome and happy life.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello- Generally, vaginal dryness is caused by lowered levels of estrogen, the hormone responsible for making fluids flow through the vaginal canal. However, all hope is not lost – here are a few natural home remedies that you could try to make the vagina moist. -Stay Super-hydrated -Oil of Evening Primrose helps treat vaginal dryness. -Healthy intake of Omega 3 Fatty Acids (salmon, tuna, and mackerel, sesame seeds, raw pumpkin, and sunflower seeds) -Careful vaginal cleaning -Supplements (Boost lubrication with beta carotene and vitamins A and B, especially B4, B5 and B12) -Plan to do a half-hour brisk walk or other form of light cardio exercise directly before you hit the sack.

It is more likely that her periods are messed up because of the pills she has taken. I would advice she does a urine pregnancy test if her periods fail to come in 10 days time. In the meantime however it is best to avoid any further unprotected intercourse.

General Physician,
Papaya (Pawpaw) Papaya is one home remedy for termination of pregnancy that has great taste as a befitting complement for its abortion-inducing function. Reports from several women seem to affirm that majority of women would have planned miscarriages by eating copious amount of Papaya. Papaya is safe and does not have the safety scare associated with ingesting high doses of most other home remedies for abortion. Sesame Seeds Sesame seeds are a healthy inclusion to the diets of many people around the world. Notwithstanding, it has an infamous property of inducing abortion. Intake may be by directly ingesting a handful of sesame seeds. Alternatively, the seeds can be soaked in a glass of water at night and left until morning: the flavored water resulting from the prolonged (overnight) submergence can then be taken in the morning. To get same result, you may also choose to include the seeds in your dishes. Sesame seeds are known to be safe and efficient home remedy abortion.

Sex without intercourse. Not very clear to me. But whatever. Even if you had sex on 23rd and got periods on 4th or 5th then pregnancy is very unlikely, though in very very rare cases scanty bleeding per vagina does not rule out pregnancy. Any way to clear doubts you can always check with pregnancy strip test with urine.
