If you pregnant, you need to go for abortion for which it is recommended to visit a gynaecologist for advise. No abortion medicine should be consumed of your own as these can be dangerous and need to be taken under medical supervision only.

When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology

When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?
Know the Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist.

If you’ve been facing problems in conceiving, it may be time to get yourself checked as it’s possible that you may be suffering from certain fertility issues or need professional guidance. A series of tests usually determine the root cause of the problem. These tests can include a physical examination, analysis of semen and blood tests, amongst others. There are certain factors that you and your partner must keep in mind when deciding upon the best time to opt for these tests and get started on an infertility treatment programme.

If you’re a female, it’s time to get yourself examined when:
1. You haven’t been able to conceive for over a year despite trying (when you are under 35)
2. You haven’t been able to conceive after trying for 6 months (above the age of 35)
3. You’ve had 1 or more miscarriages
4. You’ve been ovulating irregularly and your previous drug treatment has failed to correct the problem
5. You suffer from damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis (a condition where tissues that cover your uterus also develop outside of the womb, causing pain and bleeding)
6. You have a history of genital infections

If you’re a male, you should consider an infertility treatment if you experience the following:
1. Facing difficulty in sperm ejaculation
2. Suffering from a low sperm count including poor sperm movement or structure (sperm’s shape and size)
3. Having an undescended testicle (a genital abnormality that occurs when the testicle fails to move into its normal position in the scrotum during the first 3 months of your life)

Apart from the above mentioned points, another important factor that you and your partner must decide upon is whether or not you intend to use assisted reproductive procedures, such as ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Semen Insertion) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help in conceiving. While the former sees fertilisation occurring naturally after the eggs and sperm get placed inside one of the two fallopian tubes, the latter deals with the transference of the embryo created in the laboratory into the uterus.

Even though the thought of infertility can be disappointing for you and your partner, early and timely intervention can help in easing up the process of conception and remove obstacles that might hinder your chances of having a baby.

I'm 23 years old. How to enjoy with my boyfriend without getting pregnant? We don't do intercourse? Still afraid lose my virginity this much soon. But pleasure is not enough for both of us in small romantic act.

If at all, you are planning for a complete sexual act or an intercourse and want to be safe and avoid pregnancy, it is advisable that you have it in your safe period (your safe period can be calculated according to your menstrual period days). Also you should ask your sexual partner to use a barrier contraceptive like condom during the act.

For taking pregnancy blood test has it to be done empty stomach or any other specific requirements?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
To increase the accuracy - or more precisely to increase the possibility of receiving a positive test result earlier - it is advised to use a first morning sample when testing for pregnancy. Why? Unless you have urinated in the middle of the night, first morning urine should exhibit a higher concentration of the the pregnancy hormone, hCG. This means you can get an accurate result sooner than with other samples collected during the day or evening. Typically, we advise "holding your urine" for about 4 hours before collecting a urine sample. Frequent urination can prevent a build-up in the concentration of hCG in a urine sample, meaning that the hCG level in the urine sample will be low (and you might receive a negative result when, in fact, you may be pregnant. Along with holding your urine, you should not consume an exorbitant amount of liquids (which might cause frequent urination or dilute a urine sample). However, do not dehydrate yourself - just drink the normal amount of water you would anyway. For blood test any time you go for test. Bottom line - use a first morning urine sample to test and thereby increase the odds of detecting pregnancy sooner.

As it was your last day of menses means bleeding is very less. That is why you should take ipill asap to avoid pregnancy. Menses will come little irregular but it can be managed easily.

Whether Can she bath in hot water or cold water? Does exercise or yoga have any remedies for it? What kind of exercise is needed?

Menstrual cycle can be disturbed if you have an imbalance of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It's not unusual to have a hormone imbalance for a few years after puberty and before the menopause. This can cause your menstrual cycle to become longer or shorter. Your periods may also become lighter or heavier. Lifestyle The following lifestyle factors can also upset your balance of hormones and cause irregular bleeding: • extreme weight loss or weight gain • excessive exercise • stress Polycystic ovary syndrome Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of PCOS are irregular or light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with PCOS, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. The production of hormones may also be unbalanced, and you could have higher levels of testosterone than normal. Testosterone is a male hormone that women usually have a small amount of. Thyroid disorders A thyroid disorder is another possible, but rare, cause of irregular periods. The thyroid gland, found in the neck, produces hormones that maintain the body's metabolism (the chemical processes your body uses to turn food into energy). Your Doctor may test for a thyroid problem by taking a blood test to check levels of thyroid hormones in your blood. Anaemia Iron deficiency due to improper diet intake can ometimes lead to irregular periods. So a thorough phyical examination is required regarding the weight History,Menstrual history,Dietary habits and any life tyle change that tookplace in her life.Only then we can reach to a diagnosis and can start a treatment for that particular problem

I have 6 months old son, breastfeeding exclusively, menstrual cycle not started yet. What to do if had an intercourse without contraception? Can I get pregnant?

Dear user. If menstrual cycle has not started yet, there is no risk of pregnancy. Still to avoid unnecessary troubles and to prevent infection, request your partner to use condoms. Take care.

Madam my wife have rubella igg positive. Already three miscarriages. My family doctor told me that it is difficult to give a healthy baby. Is it correct. Any other ways to have children in this case. Pls advice.

Totally wrong idea. Igg positive means she is immune to it- that means she had previous infection but she can never get this infection again. Moreover, pls get informed that rubella testing for miscarriage is an obsolete test as rubella can never give rise to repeated miscarriage. Rather try to look for other possible causes and get them corrected before pregnancy.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
In early months, even up to 1-2 years, of sexual life many women fail to achieve orgasm. Too much anxiety also is one of the causes. Moreover physical conditions like diabetes, thyroid problem, high prolactin levels etc. Too are often involved, so do blood tests hb, tc, dc, fasting sugar, prolactin, tsh. She will know only when she get it. Also there are medicines which can help if you want then only - ask private question.
