Some congenital anomalies are not curable. Such pregnancies are terminated. It becomes very problematic for you to look after life long. Already you have one healthy baby. You will conceive once again no doubt. Better to have healthy baby and enjoy your life. Listen to your doctor.

Which treatment is best for infertility due age (32 age) factor? Any special diet to be follow as well?

Advanced Aesthetics

Planning for your pregnancy Folic acid 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. The best time to get pregnant 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.

Don't worry. You wait for 12 to 15 days more for periods, then you have to do first urine pregnancy test. Not to take any medicines in waiting period.

Hi Chintan. Unprotected intercourse increases your chances of infection both benign as well as the sexually transmitted ones including HIV. Hence i would not suggest you to continue having such unsafe sexual practice.

Hello, You need to be evaluated for PCOD, hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia as these are the next most common causes of delayed menses after pregnancy has been ruled out.

Infertility

DGO
Gynaecologist, Pune
It's been 35 years since the world's first test-tube baby was born and since then, around 5 million births have taken place through assisted reproductive procedure such as in vitro fertilisation (ivf).

Still there are many misconceptions related to infertility and ivf. Here are some myths and facts.

Myth: infertility is primarily a female problem
Fact: both men and women may have infertility problems: about 15 percent of such cases are related to men, 40 percent to women and 30 percent to problems in both partners. Unidentified causes account for 15 percent of the cases.

Myth: alternative medicines can improve fertility
Fact: there is no scientific evidence to support this belief and using such types of medicines is a waste of time.

Myth: age is not a big factor in infertility
Fact: age has a direct correlation to women's egg quality and quantity. By the age of 35, the risk of infertility rises significantly as the woman's egg reserve starts declining after that age. Age 18 to 29 are the most fertile years of a woman's life.
{mosimage}

Myth: ivf has a 100 percent success rate
Fact: success rate for ivf depends on a number of factors such as the woman's age, cause of infertility, the institution where the procedure is done and other biological and hormonal conditions. The process results in successful pregnancies in 40 to 50 percent cases. In three consecutive cycles, success rate goes up to 80 to 90 percent.

Myth: it is a painful procedure
Fact: multiple injections used in the treatment can cause discomfort but it isn't painful. The process of egg collection is done under general anaesthesia and the embryo transfer is a painless process.

Myth: babies born via ivf are at risk of birth defects and abnormalities
Fact: the chance of abnormality is slightly higher as compared to the babies conceived through sexual intercourse. Babies born via ivf are 1.3 times more likely to be born with birth defect.

Myth: ivf always results in" multiple pregnancy"; the woman will have twins or triplets
Fact: the chances of" multiple pregnancy" may be lessened by reducing the number of embryos transferred, especially in young women.

Myth: if the ivf process is unsuccessful, it is the end of the road for the couple trying to have a baby
Fact: there are many couples who have conceived naturally or with intrauterine insemination (iui) even after going through an unsuccessful ivf procedure.

Myth: ivf is too expensive
Fact: most ivf cycles cost from rs 1 to rs 1.3 lakh (including medicines) but the positive outcome of the process is more precious.

Hi my Girlfriend periods date: 10aug-15th aug. Had unprotected sex on 27th aug. She took ipill (ecp) after 6 hours. She started bleeding on 1st September at 1 30a. M which was just like her periods.

The I-pill must have brought about an early period. As long as you use protection for the future it should be okay.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Most ovarian cysts occur as a normal part of the process of ovulation called functional cysts. These cysts usually go away within a few months without any treatment. You can repeat the scan after 3 months to find out. No need of surgery if you r not suffering from severe pain because of this cyst.

Vaginal pain is may be due to vaginal infection. Keep clean and dry the vaginal region. Apply some antifungal ointment on the vaginal region. If problem will remain after that then visit to doctor.

Is the unwanted 72 kit is safe to stop pregnancy and how many tab. Are safe to take in a month.

Is the unwanted 72 kit is safe to stop pregnancy and how many tab. Are safe to take in a month.
Hello, Unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive i-pill that is essentially a high dose of birth control. It does one of three things: it either prevents a woman from ovulating, which in turn means the egg cannot be fertilized, it will prevent an egg that has already been released from being fertilized, or it stops a fertilized egg from implanting. Regardless of where you are in your cycle, taking this emergency i-pill immediately will help to ensure you don’t find yourself pregnant in the immediate future. However, just like with any quick fix, Unwanted 72 pills come with some undesired and sometimes unexpected side effects. Theses are:- Skin sensitivities, Weight gain, Changes in mood, Changes in menstruation, Reproductive damage. Keeping these side effects in the view you should not repeat it frequently, you can take it once in a blue moon. Take care.

Importance of a healthy diet

Importance of a healthy diet
Importance of a healthy diet

1. A healthy diet will help ensure your body is getting the nutrition it needs, and will help you maintain a healthy weight.
2. People who are overweight or obese are at an increased risk for certain health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke.
3. Your weight is directly affected by your diet and physical activity, and the food you eat greatly affects your body and how blood flows through your heart and arteries.
4. High fat and high cholesterol diets can cause a buildup of plaque in your arteries. A blockage in a heart artery can cause a heart attack just as a blockage in your brain can cause a stroke.
5. A healthy diet will help prevent buildup in your arteries and blood vessels and reduce your risk of acquiring weight-related health problems.

Periods are not regular every time. Follicular study already done showing bilateral bulky ovaries features of pcos. Dominant follicle seen in left ovary. Followed by rupture before 16th day. My serum luteinizing hormone is 24.96u/ml rest of the tests r OK. Husbands semen analysis was low count but after medication it shows gud grade before 6 months, do we need to check it again? And what is the best possible way out for me to conceive?

Yes get a repeat test of your husband done. And since you have pcos and your husbands count was not very good, so you should go for iui which will increase your chances of getting pregnant soon.
