Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Benign, or noncancerous, tumors in the uterus can cause heavy bleeding or long periods. Benign growths in the uterine lining (endometrium) can cause a heavy or prolonged period. These growths are known as polyps, when the growth is made up of endometrial tissue, or fibroids, when the growth is made up of muscle tissue. If the sonography is clear, no need to worry and talk to your obgyn doctor for a cure. Take care

When you are on a diet and crave for desserts, the most important part is to trick your own mind.
Stick to fruit sugars. Do not add any sugar or butter to your desserts.

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. You must also understand that there are many other factors which determines the pregnancy. Take care.

Hello, You don't need to worry about it as the size of the cyst is very small..! And will probably resolve on its own however You can just get a scan later on to see if the size is increasing. !

If your menstrual cycle is of thirty days then it is likely that you may be pregnant if you had intercourse between 12 to 17th September. If you are not pregnant this time I'd suggest you stop trying. Your girls will bring you much more happiness than a boy ever could. Since you are 39 getting pregnant at this age may be risky not only for the baby but also for you. You ought to think about that too.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. Your nipples can become irritated, sore, or even cracked due to friction. Running and sexual activity are sometimes causes of temporary nipple problems due to vigorous rubbing. A severe blow to your breast or unusual pressure on the chest can also cause nipple discharge. These are normal. Yet you could consult your gynecologist. Take care.

Dear user. To TEST PREGNANCY AT HOME simply add urine to a small piece of soap, if froth forms, or if the soap bubbles up, the test is positive. Mix ¼ cup of tuna juice and ¼ cup of vinegar in a plastic cup. Now pee in a separate cup and then add your urine to this mixture. After a few minutes, if the color changes to green, then you are pregnant. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user in this situation there is more chances for pregnancy. Possibly ask her to check wtih strip test. Based on that for reconfirm it by checking into Laboratory URINE PREGNANCY TEST (UTP). If this report is negative than do not worry, if it comes positive consult a gynaecologist for further suggestion/MTP. And from next time possibly have unprotected relationship 1wk before or after menses flow (if any you are having relationship) all the best.
