Hi, please do not get afraid first. When your wife could get conceived with tight vagina she can deliver as well vaginally. As pregnancy grows due to hormonal changes tissues will relax and if she goes to a right doctor she will take care of her and motivate her for vaginal delivery unless there is no other indication for c section. So do not worry now itself.

To estimate your cycle and fertile period you should know about duration of your cycle well. Fertile days means chances of getting pregnant usually happens when you intercourse happen from 11-17 days of your cycle. According to above mentioned. Chances of getting pregnancy is nil. You can consult a gynecologist for the same.

Kit needs to be stored at temperature below 25-30 degrees if during summers kit is exposed to 40 degrees, it gives false results but never false positives false negatives are common if kits are not stored in a fridge. Positive results are expected only few days after cycle is due and not just after 24 hours. Take care.

It is in-fact the most healthy activity for both man and woman. It is the only activity where every part of woman’s brain is activate. Brain activity during a female orgasm has been described as secondary to an epileptic seizure as all regions of brains is activated, even unrelated brain regions come to life.

Dear lybrate-user My suggestion is that you should examined by a Gynaecologist first of all and share your perspective of getting hymenoplasty done. If the procedure is definitely required for your problem then it is advisable otherwise not. Plastic surgeons also perform hymenoplasty but their concern is not pertaining to your gynecological issues. Hence my advice is that you should visit a Gynaecologist for honest advice. I am a gynecologist and I have been performing hymenoplasty on regular basis since past 10 years. Hope this info helps you.

The report is fine, there are sometimes unknown cause for not conceiving, or sometimes stress and other condition like ph, tubal patent, cervical factor, which are general not considered in initial months of trying. So get an hsg done after your cycle is over, and share the report will help you.

HIV - Know Its Impact On Body

HIV - Know Its Impact On Body

HIV, which is short for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, penetrates your body and directly attacks your immune system. In this process, the virus weakens your body's natural defense mechanism against diseases and infections. A compromised immune system makes the body prone to minor infections, which healthy people would generally overcome. The virus itself doesn't cause any physical symptoms. It only serves to ease the entry of other bacteria and viruses into the body.

The following are some of the ways HIV affects your body:
1. Immune system - The human immunodeficiency virus destroys CD4 cells, the white blood cells that help the immune system ward off foreign substances. If left unchecked, HIV can develop into AIDS. During such time, the virus may damage the immune system to an extent that it wouldn't be able to ward off minor infections that a healthy immune system would. A person with HIV could thus suffer from fever, chills, sweats, shortness of breath, white spots in the mouth, fatigue, skin rash and weight loss from time to time.
2. Respiratory system - As HIV develops into AIDS, the body can contract infections such as pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), tuberculosis and Kaposi's sarcoma. These conditions lead to serious respiratory problems. PCP is found to be one of the most common infections among people with HIV. 85% of the people would develop the infection if the condition is left untreated.
3. Skin problems - As in healthy individuals, many skin conditions can also occur in people with HIV or AIDS. But a compromised immune system heightens the condition and causes difficulty in treatment. Dermatitis, psoriasis, and hives are common conditions. They are also prone to a rare type of skin cancer known as Kaposi's sarcoma.
4. Gastrointestinal System - Gastrointestinal disorders are the most common ailments for people diagnosed with HIV and AIDS. Problems faced include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal pain and gastrointestinal bleeding. 50% of the people suffering from HIV encounter gastrointestinal disorders at some point of their illness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Only follicular study by ultrasound can confirm whether you have ovulation on 14th day or not. If you have a 28 day menstrual cycle, then your likelihood for ovulation on 14th day is high. Very little semen is required for pregnancy to happen (as little as 0.2 ml. Coming out of semen from the vagina after intercourse is absolutely normal as very little of it is required for a lady to get pregnant.
