The chances of getting pregnant in a single cycle is only 15-20% even if everything is fine. So don't worry try for at least 3-6 months during fertile period.

Yes you should give her a pill as this technique of discharging outside while having unprotected sex is called COITUS INTERRUPTUS and is highly dangerous.For adopting this technique while having sex you should know regarding the safe and unsafe period of your Gf menstrual cycle and if Sexual contact is made in unsafe period ,even though you have ejaculated outside,you should immediately give her pill,afterall accidents dont happen with prior intimation.

ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH FRAGILE BONES?

MBBS, MS, DNB, FNB (SPINE SURGERY)
Orthopedist, Chennai
ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH FRAGILE BONES?
ARE YOU AT HIGH RISK OF DEVELOPING A FRACTURE IN YOUR SPINE OR HIP? Read on to know more about OSTEOPOROSIS.
There is another silently progressing, common disease other than diabetes and hypertension that can cause potentially serious risk to your health in old age. Osteoporosis meaning “porous bones” indicates a condition where your bones become more porous, thinner and weaker due to accelerated loss of bone or reduced bone formation or both. It is most evident in the vertebrae of spine, hip bones and in the wrists.
Thin and porous vertebrae fracture easily. They crumble on their own or due to minor stresses during daily activities like coughing, sneezing, bending forwards. These fractures can be painless and go unnoticed in multiple levels till the spine develops a forward bend and a noticeable loss of height. Or it can cause significant pain and disability, limitation in daily activities and increased dependence on others. A simple slip and fall at home can cause a fracture in the hip bones that can make the patient completely bed ridden. These situations commonly cause depression and general deterioration of health and leads to other risky complications in old age.
Though it is most common women after menopause, it also happens in men above age of 65 years and in those with certain risk factors like liver or kidney disease, thyroid or parathyroid disorders, and certain tumours. Smoking has been proven to cause osteoporosis. Long term steroid intake given for various conditions and medications given for seizure disorders also can cause osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis can be detected easily by a screening test called the DEXA scan. Any one above the age of 50 years should consult an orthopaedic surgeon to know if they are at risk of osteoporosis and whether he/she needs a DEXA scan. If the DEXA scan reveals that you have osteoporosis, you must be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon and an endocrinologist to look for other treatable conditions that can cause osteoporosis. There are medications that are prescribed to strengthen the bones and reduce the risk of fractures in future. Diet rich in calcium and vitamin D and supplementary calcium and vitamin D medications are also an essential part of treatment.
Although the vertebral osteoporotic fractures commonly heal in a few weeks with bed rest and medications, some of them may not heal in time or cause severe pain and disability. These patients might need surgical intervention. Vertebroplasty is a procedure that involves injection of bone cement into the broken vertebra and can give immediate pain relief. Kyphoplasty is a similar procedure that can restore the height of the fractured vertebral body and reduce the forward stoop in the spine. Open surgery might be required sometimes if the collapsed vertebra causes a compression of the spinal cord or nerves in the spine. Osteoporotic hip fractures and wrist fractures often need surgical treatment for fixation.
Prevention of osteoporosis should begin in childhood. Growing bones accumulate calcium and the calcium in bones reaches a peak at around age of 26 to 30 years. After that age, there is a slow decline in the bone calcium, which accelerates in old age especially in women after menopause. So those who reach a lower peak of calcium in bones by the age of 30 are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis in old age. This means that adequate intake of dietary calcium, vitamin D and adequate exercise from young age is very important to prevent osteoporosis.
Prevention of falls and resultant fractures in those who are osteoporotic is an important aspect of treatment. This needs modification of their living spaces to remove the risks of a slip and fall. Routine exercises and an active lifestyle load the bones and make them stronger and it is a must for all those with osteoporosis and those at risk of developing osteoporosis.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, sad to know about your loss. If the last delivery was by csection in november 2015 then the best advice is to wait a year before you get the next treatment done. However because pgd is not that easy you would need to consult the clinic before hand as there are pre pgd workup to be done, which includes mutation testing for you and your wife and also family memberfs. Also the probes or primers need to be ready.

Right after periods ovulation do not occur, so chances of pregnany is almost nil then. Day 7-18 of cycle is the ovulatory period/ risky for prevnancy. Before or after that is relatively safer. Hwever chance ovulation still may occur.

Hi I am rosy 24 years old. I am diagnosed with pcos I have taken treatment but it was of no use. So I consulted a homeopathy doctor and he said first he will give medicine for period to come. I have taken the homeo medicine and it is nearly 10 days and my period doesn't shows. And now I notice some kind of greenish, sticky discharge from my both nipples when I press them. I am freaking out. Should I approach homeo doctor or a gynic. Please advice me. Thanks in advance.
