You are trying correctly. Try from day 10 to day 16 regularly, but that does not mean that you cannot have sex on other days

There are no chances of pregnancy according to the events told. But I advise you to do urine pregnancy test on first morning sample of urine to rule out pregnancy. Follow this and be happy.

You are likely to be suffering from vaginal fungal infection. You should visit your gynecologist who will prescribe you with vaginal pessary, which will completely cure your itching and discharge. Clingen pessary or imidil-c pessary are examples of such pessary.

Can you give me broader views about IUI and IVF as a fertility treatment. My spouse tried IUI twice with no success, Is there any other way before we plan for IVF?

MBBS,MD(medicine)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
For a pregnancy to click sperm and egg should be available at the same time. The chance of pregnancy to click trying naturally is about 5-10 percent. If you do an IUI it increases the success to 20-26 percent. IUI is a technique where we get the eggs released by medication and at the same time take the partners sperm process it in lab and place it inside the uterus. This procedure is simple.in IVF we get the eggs outside the body place it in làb culture media and partner sperm is injected in the egg and made to grow. The cultured embryos are placed in the uterus .success rate is 50 percent.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - What Indicates That You Need It?

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - What Indicates That You Need It?

With infertility on the rise due to various reasons, in-vitro fertilization is one of the most effective solutions. This is gaining wide acceptance across the society and medical fraternity. Read on to know more about why IVF and how it is done.

Causes of infertility:
Advanced maternal age: More and more women choosing education and career over marriage and family. There are many women who are not even thinking of having children up until their 30s. Biologically though, the quality of egg deteriorates with age, and women beyond 35 have difficulty conceiving naturally.

  • Altered lifestyle including exposure to chemicals and pollutants, which has led to overall decline in the health of individuals.
  • Societal changes like urbanization and formation of nuclear families
  • Increased stressors in all spheres of life, which is affecting the quality of sperm and egg
  • Lifestyle diseases including obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. These are becoming more prevalent in the younger age groups, and therefore infertility is on the rise in these groups.
  • Lifestyle habits like smoking, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, etc., which are also poorly affecting fertility rates.

However, with all these, medical technology is also improving. For those who are faced with infertility due to the above issues, there is a lot of hope in terms of options like IVF which have provided a definitive solution to infertility.

Steps of IVF: By definition, in vitro fertilization is when the egg and sperm are fertilized or fused in a glass (vitro is for glass) and then implanted into the womb where it grows further.

  • The first step is to induce ovulation. Fertility medicines are given and hormone levels are monitored to ensure egg release happens. Normally, the ovaries produce only one egg. However, with IVF, the ovary is made to produce multiple eggs, so that the chances of fertility is increased.
  • The egg is then retrieved and moved into an incubator.
  • Sperm sample is obtained either from the partner or a donor, and the healthiest sperm is chosen for fertilization. The sperm and the egg are then allowed to fertilize in the incubator
  • A healthy fertilized embryo is then transferred into the womb. The woman is advised bedrest for about 1 to 2 days.

Indications:

  • Blocked fallopian tubes, which do not allow for the sperms to travel up to the uterus
  • Advanced maternal age, women of more than 30 years of age, this is an effective option.
  • Uterine scarring or endometriosis caused infertility can also be managed through IVF

How to have safe sex without using any protection (Condoms or Pills) and how many days we can have sex before or after period?

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Chennai
As we all know, the safest sex is with a disease-free partner in a mutually monogamous relationship. For some people, however, this is not a realistic option. The next best thing is to use condoms. Using a condom every time you have intercourse, and using it correctly, drastically reduces your risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Making careful choices when it comes to sexual partners is a key element of safe sex. Men who have sex with men, intravenous drug users, and former prisoners and their sex partners -- no matter what their sex -- are all at higher risk. Get to know your potential sex partner before you actually have sex. Talk to your partners about their sexual history, and about yours. Don't assume that younger partners are less risky. Quite the opposite. Two thirds of STDs are diagnosed in people under thirty-five. When it comes to safe sex, remember three rules: 1. Look out for yourself. Always. Don't depend on your partner for protection. No matter who your partner is or what your partner says, make sure you use a condom. No matter how it feels at the moment, don't take needless risks. 2. Talk before you act. Talk honestly and forthrightly with your partner about sexual history and safe sex before you ever get to the bedroom. Trust is an important part of sexual intimacy. 3. Don't believe your partner. As I just said, trust is an important part of sexual intimacy. Honest talks and full disclosure of past behaviors are essential for practicing safe sex. However, that isn't enough. Your partner may tell you in good faith that he or she has no sexually transmitted disease (STD), but he or she may be wrong. Since many STDs are "silent" (not apparent), a person may be unaware of the infection for years but still be capable of transmitting the disease. Also, many people have problems talking about STDs, a potentially embarrassing topic. Surveys show that a large percentage of people say that they would lie if asked about past sexual behavior. A recent study of sexually active human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients showed that four of ten had not told their partners about their disease status. Always wear a condom

I ask the doctors online about the dosage of misoprostol & mifepristone. But all tells me to meet a gynecologist. But I am a teenager. My age us 17. How can I meet w gynecologist? What should I tell him/her? He/she will ask me for the signature of my parents or gurdian. But I can not tell my parents because I am from a poor family. I have about 1100rs. Can I do abortion without parents signature? Please suggest can not explain the situation. Very shamed what I have done. Very scared.

Don't wait for long then it will become difficult to abort by medicines. Not without a doctor. Take into confidence any of your relatives, a little elder to you and meet a doctor. You can discuss your economic status with the doctor or else go to a government hospital. The doctors there will help you out.
