It's difficult to get baby heart rate at 5 weeks. Please get it checked again after 10 days. Probably what is seen is mothers heart rate.

hi Priyanka, so sorry to hear about your previous abortion, may I know cause of previous abortion. in order to prevent abortion you should avoid outside street food, healthy balance diet, avoid lifting heavy weight. using Indian toilet is OK. keep strict watch on sugar, blood pressure and thyroid levels in order to prevent abortion. wish you good luck!

Dear sir/Madam, Can I have sex with my wife on 13 th day after her period date and continue on 14, 16, 18th dates if it is not possible to have sex on 12 th day and how many days a ovule will be ready to combine with sperm i. E. As egg release day is around 12 to 14 th day from the period date is it ok to have sex on 13, 14, 16. Days after the period date and how many days an egg remains after its release from fallopian tube. Please confirm.

DNB, DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
It is difficult to predict the exact days for ovulation. It may vary from person to person. The best way is to calculate the expected fertility period and have contact every day or every second day. For a woman with regular cycles, this is calculated as 2 weeks prior to the next expected period. 4 days before and 4 days after this date gives the fertility period.

you're safe with ipill taken within 42 hours don't become a habitual user of ipill which is emergency medicine, to be used only during emergency when nothing else is available ipill is loaded with hormones which can lead to complications like hormonal imbalances and irregular periods read books about health care and do meet a counselor for guidance

Ayurveda and Autoimmune Disorders

Ayurveda and Autoimmune Disorders

When the immune system of the body reacts against the tissues of its own body, it is called an autoimmune disorder. To put it more dramatically, the body becomes its own enemy. The immune system of your body keeps fighting disease causing germs and bacteria, but in rare cases, the immune system might malfunction and fight its own body causing different disorders. These disorders may be caused due to genetic issues or due to mutations. According to ayurveda, autoimmune disorders are a result of constant unhealthy lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda works at the root cause of the disease where it starts treating the malfunctioning immune system.

Here is how ayurveda treats autoimmune disorders:

  1. Toxin removal: Ayurveda starts working on removing the toxins from the body. According to ayurveda, toxins or ama in the body interfere with the proper functioning of the immune system, which often leads to autoimmune diseases. Usually shunthi, haritaki, pippali, maricha, hingu and saindhav lavan are used to detoxify the body.
  2. Metabolism correction: Not only will ayurveda detoxify the body, but it will also correct the metabolism which gets messed up when afflicted with an autoimmune disorder. Neem, guggulu, guduchi, vasa, patola patra and ghrita are used to correct the metabolism.
  3. Increase in ojus production: Ojus is the component which helps in the nourishment of the immune system. It is generally received from the food you eat. Due to dysfunctional immune system causing the impairment of metabolism, production of ojas decreases to almost nil. Hence ayurveda increases its production. Guduchi, haridra, manjishtha, amalaki, nirgundi, yashtimadhu and pippali are used to increase ojha production.
  4. Immune system correction: Lastly, ayurveda works at correcting the immune system. If the immune system is not corrected, then the above treatment procedure will just be useless. Ghrita, haritaki, bahera, amalaki, ela and dadim are used generally to calm the immune system and rejuvenate it. They help correct the immune system for normal functioning.

Autoimmune disorders may not be easily treated, but that doesn't mean you cannot expect it to cure or witness a miracle. You just need some faith and confidence alongside proper treatment and you are ready to roll.

If the bleeding is settling down and there is minimal pain then do not worry as it may be just one off. Occasionally periods can be disturbed due to stress, poor health and medicines like i-pill. Keep a menstrual calender for the next 3 months and see what happens.

Is it possible and safe to have sex during pregnancy? If yes, then can a woman keep having sex all 9 months or she has to stop after a certain month?

You have to wait for doing test. You have to perform pregnancy test after 5 weeks of last menstruation date. But unprotected sex is associated risk of HIV and other 29 Sexually transmitted infection so come on private chat to discuss in detail online.

Krimson 35 is not emergency contraceptive pills. So you can not take it after having sex. It must be started before sex from day 7 of mensturation.

I am a 23 year old man. I am in a relationship with a girl for five long years. We love each other so much. It took 5 years for us to become mentally strong to commit for sex. We followed safety precautions while we had sex. Now the problem is that, she usually has her periods around 18-19 dates of the month. But it is 22nd of the month still she is not getting the signs of periods. We are afraid of having a baby now itself. Is this a sign of pregnancy? Or shall we wait for a day or two more? What shall we do now? Suggest us some medications to avoid pregnancy if you think she going to be a pregnant. Save us from drowning.

Missing a scheduled period is usually the first sign of pregnancy. Your friend should go for a urine pregnancy test. If that is negative you can be almost sure that she is not pregnant. You can wait for periods for another week. If it is positive, then there is >90% chance that she is pregnant. In that case you both may consult a gynecologist for termination of the unwanted pregnancy.
