Hi i'm 20 years old female i'm trying to conceive. My periods was on 3rd june and again I got my periods on 17th june but this mid cycle bleeding was different like 1st day some spotting and second day heavy bleeding and 3rd day little brown discharge and my periods stopped [so basically heavy bleeding was on 2nd day and the color was red ]. And the bleeding was not painful like regular periods . So this can be implantation bleeding ?

Hi lybrate user, from your description it looks like that you had bleeding and spotting due to ovulation. If you are trying for baby you should plan during that time.

If baby's size is more in 9th month then what to do for normal delivery and what to eat to keep size ok?

If baby's size is more in 9th month then what to do for normal delivery and what to eat to keep size ok?
Don't blindly run after the normal delivery. Safety of the baby is more important than normal delivery. I am sorry to say but who wants a baby with problems after normal delivery. So keep on eating healthy diet don't starve yourself else baby might develop severe issues.

Yes it is very much possible to get infection from diabetes patients male or female. So clean with salt water before and after sex and always apply coconut oil before sex.

Sex is not prevented during preg however if there are problems better to avoid and definitely after 32-34wks over indulgence to be avoided at all times so the person is not tired.

You both, the newly weded couple, must plan when do you wish to have a baby. Till that time you can use" temporary contraceptive methods" of all the contraceptive methods, for a newly married person, I would recommend oral contraceptive pills as their efficacy is about 99%. When using the pills it is better to meet a local gyencologist and seek advice about how to take and other precautions. When pills are taken for contraception, they take 15 days to act, hence for the first pack of pills, the couple has to either abstain from sex, or use condoms for every act for the first 15 days. After this usually no additional contraceptive will be required. And pills have to be taken sequentially in 21/7 regime or 24/4 regime or 28day continuous regime as per the choice of pills. There are many types of pills, and the gynecologist will choose the one thats best suitable for your wife, based on know how of her: present cycles present complaints about menses body weight concerns medical diseases and correction of any additional problems like acne, etc so go and get some contraceptive advice from a local gynecologist.

It is not good to use medicine for small reasons. It leads to some other problems. It has a chance to effect to side effects. Better to change the friend circle. Or make a very good friend with another one. Spend most of the time with remaining friends they are not related to him. Develop a very good new friends. Talk some of them. Who may have a positive opinion on you. Express your all internal feelings and problems with family members and close friends. Do not be alone. Develop a very good busy schedule. Visit remaining friends homes or relatives homes etc. Visit temples, parks or very new places. If it is possible better to change the place. Spend most of the time in happy mood. Better to remove his memories in your books. Do not think his name and others. Give suggestions that I am always well and I have no problems. Feel always confident and comfortable manner. Be sociable and be happy. Ok all the best.

As such no serious reason is seen but due to frequent urination chances of infection or? calculi may be there. Drink plenty of water and coconut water and sugar cane juice, avoid spicy food for few days. May take two tablet of chandraprabhavati or tablet bangashil two times in a day with coconut water for ten days and report.
