So we met an infertility expert and from her medicines I am pregnant for 15 weeks and the baby is also good as per doctor. I had to know will it be safe to have sex. Up till now we did not have sex after I conceived because in the beginning our doctor has told us not to do. Can we do now or not?

Dear lybrate-user, Sex during pregnancy is otherwise not inhibited but if your doctor has asked you to refrain from it, he must be suspecting some high risk condition in your case. Please go by your doctor's advice as he only can guide you the best.

Abortion pills are prescribed if their is unwanted pregnancy and girl/women wants to abort the pregnancy provided that your doctor feels that you are fit for the same and there are not contraindication. For abortion pill, you need a prescription from a recognized doctor.

Does Quality of Eggs Affect IVF Treatment?

Does Quality of Eggs Affect IVF Treatment?

Whenever a couple opts for IVF, the main question in their mind is that will it be successful? The chances depend on a number of factors, the most important one being the quality of eggs. If the eggs are not good, they will not be able to get fertilized, or even if they get fertilized the embryo they will form will be abnormal. Thus to be precise, IVF treatment requires a successful embryo implantation which can be only possible if the eggs are good. Thus, directly or indirectly, the egg quality influences the success of IVF treatment. If an embryo looks good, it does not mean that the implantation will be carried out successfully. Many internal factors too contribute to the quality of eggs and thus the success of IVF treatment. These factors are discussed below.

Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal imbalance is one of the most widespread reasons behind many problems, and IVF treatment is no exception. When a woman is reported to have more than normal levels of the Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH on the third day of her menstrual cycle, then a popular term is used by the doctors, that is, “diminishes ovarian reserve.” What does this really mean? This means that the woman’s eggs are not healthy. Although they would look healthy and even get fertilized normally.

Not only this but they will also experience embryonic cleavage in a totally normal way. But the difference is that they won’t divide further beyond the eight-celled stage and implantation is impossible. What happens is that the ovaries do not produce enough signals that are required and the pituitary gland does not receive the signals that it should. So the body synthesizes more FSH to stimulate the ovaries. This ultimately leads to a diminished ovarian reserve and thus a decreased egg quality. Since implantation is not possible, IVF becomes a failure.

Advancing age of the woman
Imbalance in the FSH levels is not the only reason behind IVF failure. Even if the levels are okay, the age of the woman may also lead to failure. You must be wondering why. So here is the answer to your question. With age, the spindle fiber gets broken, and thus the chromosomes are not separated equally. This leads to unequal division of the chromosomes. Ultimately the eggs become abnormal genetically, and the embryo that results from them become abnormal too.

IVF success relies on a number of factors and egg quality is just one of them. But it is also one of the crucial factors. Speak to your doctor and be sure from beforehand about your egg quality so that your efforts do not go waste.

If you want to discuss any other problem, Consult an IVF Specialist.

I am 17. It's been 11 days since there has been an accidental touch of penis near my vaginal area. I don't exactly recall where. He had precum maybe. It touched only for a fraction of seconds. There had been a pregnancy scare ever since. I had tried out various home remedies for inducing early periods or miscarrying. My periods started 2 days ago. But I am confused whether it's implantation bleeding. The blood is bright red, but lighter than my usual periods. It contains a few clots too. I had been experiencing stomach cramps but no symptoms of pregnancy. Is there any possibility of me being pregnant?

lybrate-user don't be anxious just wait and watch, there is as such no difference between implantation bleeding and normal bleeding. Mind well not every pregnant pt bleed. So to remove your anxiety do home urine pregnancy test once your period over. If negative don't worry. Second thing meet a gynac nearby for effective contraception if you are indulge in sexual activity.

Almonds Vs. Walnuts

Almonds Vs. Walnuts

Whenever you peruse through snack options in a store, looking for a fulfilling yet healthy option often turns out to be really challenging. This is where you might consider nuts, such as almonds or walnuts. They are healthy snacking options with rich reserves of protein, fibre, and energy.

However, even in the choice between almonds and walnuts, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind.

  • Energy content: Almonds contain 14 grams worth of fat, and 164 calories whereas walnuts contain approximately 18 grams of fat but give 185 calories. Thus, we find that walnuts contain a slightly higher amount of fat than almonds, but provide more energy in the form of calories.
  • Protein content: Almonds and walnuts are both protein powerhouses - containing 13% and 9% of protein content respectively. Thus, both these nuts are great sources of protein.
  • Mineral content: Both almonds and walnuts are rich in various kinds of minerals. When it comes to Iron, which is essential for muscle health and blood formation, both nuts contain very similar amounts (approx 5%). Almonds pack 19% magnesium - essential for strong bones, compared to the 11% in walnuts. Walnuts, however, have very high amounts of copper (50%) and manganese (54%) which prove to be useful in reducing symptoms of PMS as compared to almonds.
  • Fibre content: Fiber,which plays a vital role in completing the process of digestion, is another component that these nuts pack healthy amounts of. Almonds contain 16% fiber whereas walnuts have 8%.
  • Vitamin content: While walnuts contain 12% Vitamin B6, compared to the 3% in almonds, the real point of difference between these two highly healthy nuts is in their content of Vitamin E - essential for healthy skin and eyes. Almonds contain almost 48% of it, whereas walnuts contain only about 2% of the same.

Thus, we get a fair idea about the high nutritional content for both these nuts. They are both essential, especially if they can be incorporated into our diets in the correct proportions.
