My wife took i pill before 7-8 hours. During sex my condom got broken after that for safety she took one more medicine i pill. Actually we don't want pregnancy now is it effective for protective the pregnancy?

General Physician, Chandigarh
It is quite effective but then 2% failure rate is there with every method so wait for her next cycle and if it gets delayed go in for urine test for pregnancy and then proceed accordingly.

There is no evidence that suggests sex is contraindicated in pregnancy as long as there are no issues with vaginal bleeding or leakage or any pregnancy related complications.

Balanced diet helps in controlling all disease and nutritional deficiencies aggrevate them. Abundand fruits and vegetables in diet have all essential nutrients with best bioavailability to the body. And so this diet is the balanced and most natural diet. This normalises weight, nutrients and balance in the body. Breakfast= fruits only. Abundant amount. Lunch/dinner= half plate salad, 1 katori sprouts, green vegetables 2 to 3 katori, daal 2 to 3 katori, only 1 roti in one meal. Evening time fruits are also good. Stop having: milk, milk products, refined foods, packaged food of any kind like bread namkeen buiscuits maida etc. As these have all kinds of adulteration now a days with reports of urea level exceeding the limit even in mother dairy milk. Do light excercise for two hours daily slowly without straining yourself. Have plenty of fluids and water daily.

Hello lybrate-user. There is all things due to pills and it has made changes in hormones, that's why you have this types of discomforts. Do not worry, just avoid to take pills, its not suitable for your body and use condom for protection. This will take 2-3 months to be regular, till that time only wait and watch.

Hello Dr. My name is lima and i'm 29 years old. I have periods problem so I took ayurvedic medicines but I did not get any result from that so I discontinue it. But I found that my weight is increasing day by day so I searched for a solution in internet that fenugreek seed is helpful. So my question is can I take it? Is it good for me? If yes how? Plzzzzz answer me I had already rejected for marriage because of my weight.

My dear lybrate-user, fenugreek seeds will not help you. Your weight gain could be a hormonal disturbance like pcod. For that you need to go go a gynaecologist and find the reason for the weight gain. For that you will have to get blood tests done like fsh, lh, prolactin, tsh. Also you need an ultrasound pelvis and medication.

Hi sir am suffering from endometriosis .i had done laparoscopic surgery for ovarian cysts. My doctor told slightly endometriosis is there inside of the uterus .wat is the solution .pls help me.

Dear lybrate-user "Endometriosis" is confirmed whenever we subject any tissue sample for histopathological examination. I hope that has been done & endometriosis is a confirmed diagnosis. I doubt that "endometriosis" is existing INSIDE uterus. There is some sort of mis-interpretation of the facts. We can go ahead with the treatment despite having endometriosis (even after twice operated ). But the treatment is governed by the problem you are facing. It can be 1) Trying for conception 2) Painful periods 3) Pain all the time 4) Painful defecation.

No, she is normal, slight change in size of both sides are in every woman. Regarding discharge through nipples, get a slide test done & if possible get ultrasound of breast to rule out underlying lesions/nodes etc. (total cost around 1000/- one thousand only in a standard lab.

On which day from period, there is a best chance of being pregnant & can anal sex causes pregnancy?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
11th to 17th days are considered most fertile days considering a regular cycle of 28 days. For pregnancy sperm has to meet egg hence anal sex can not cause pregnancy.

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

You should talk to her weather she not suffering any medical condition or suffering any other complication. May be extra marital do not mind but you may initiate a probe on all angles at least why she not agree on intimacy with husband. Dialogue is the best way to resolve the issue.

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

Hello Doctor, Last month I got my usg and reports says I have urine fibroid of 30×26 mm. My periods are regular but severe pain on 2nd day. Is there any treatment for the same except surgery. Please suggest me. Thanks in advance.

Sexologist, Ahmedabad
Hello lybrate-user fibroid uterus can only be treated by surgery. If you can tolerate pain and if you are not bleeding heavy then just take some pain killer tablets during periods. Might not need to rush for surgery.

Period may start late after delivery if you are breast feeding regularly. But since you have not conceived after trying regularly for a year, you should see a gynecologist and get investigated now.

Why Walking is a 10x Time Better Workout Than Running or Jogging!

General Physician, Mumbai
Why Walking is a 10x Time Better Workout Than Running or Jogging!

Walking is a low intense cardio exercise that is suitable for all age groups. For people with bone problems and back pain, walking is the perfect exercise. It is less stressful on the body and has similar benefits to running or jogging. So if you are looking for reasons to jump on the bandwagon of walking as an exercise, here are a few:

  1. Good for the heart: Running puts some amount of stress on your heart muscles but does not seem to reduce the chances of premature death; whereas walking at a brisk pace puts less stress on the heart and considerably reduces the risk of premature death. Running may also cause inflammation in the muscles of the heart and increases free radicals in the body.
  2. Increases immunity: Walking has a beneficial effect on the immune system of the body vis-agrave;-vis running. Running may induce conditions in the body which allow various bacterial infections like cold to foster. You end up falling sick more often if you run.
  3. Helps in weight loss: Walking is a steady state exercise resulting in moderate levels of heart rate. Moderate heart rate sustained for 45-60 minutes is advised to lose fat. Running tends to raise the heart rate to drastic levels which cannot be sustained for long, thus leading to reduced fat loss.
  4. Less stress on the joints: Running is a vigorous activity that places a lot of stress on the knee joints and the lower back. If you have conditions, such as osteoarthritis and lower back pain, then running is a strict no for you. It is recommended to walk at a brisk pace for an hour every day for maximum benefits.
  5. Walking can be done anywhere: You can take a walk inside your office premises or even walk back to your home after work due to the light nature of the exercise. Running or jogging may require proper gear and may not be suitable for all places.
