Again recheck. If reconfirms then she is pregnant. How many days period is late? if its below 50 days form last period start date then there are tablets for abortion. Consult a local gynecologist. Thanks.

It can be due to prochlorperazine which is part of vasograin. Do your serum prolactin test (blood test) treatment is possible. This does not appear to be serious if discharge is from both breasts. But you have to do tests.

The day I got periods and vagina was itching and I was having irritation in that area. This happened for three days and then it stopped itching in the day time but for the past 3 days its been itching at night as soon as I go to bed. There is no different sort of discharge or any pain during urine. I feel better after I apply candid antifungal powder there. Anything that I can do to cure this & why is this happening?

Hello Lybrate User, Different types of infections may cause itching or an abnormal discharge in the vagina. It is associated itching or irritation. Causes include - Infections spread during sexual contact. These include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis. Vaginal yeast infection, caused by a fungus. Normal bacteria that live in the vagina that overgrow, causing itching and fishy odor. These are few reasons behind vaginal discharge and redness and itching. Follow this tips - * Keep your genital area clean and dry when you have vaginitis. Make sure to seek help from health care provider for the best treatment. * Avoid soap and just rinse with water to clean yourself. Soak in a warm but not hot bath may help your symptoms. Dry thoroughly afterward. * Avoid using hygiene sprays, fragrances, or powders in the genital area. Use pads and not tampons while you have an infection. * Allow more air to reach your genital area. Wearing loose-fitting clothes and not wearing panty hose. Wearing cotton underwear (rather than synthetic), or underwear that has a cotton lining in the crotch. Cotton increases airflow and decreases moisture buildup. * Know how to properly clean their genital area while bathing or showering. Wipe properly after using the toilet -- always from front to back. Wash thoroughly before and after using the bathroom.   Along with that take homeopathic treatment. When a woman experiences no relief from external treatments, a homeopathic remedy to balance the vital force will help the particular infection. If you want to take a homeopathic treatment consult me privately on Lybrate. Take care.

All reports normal means you have good chance of pregnancy if we start treatment now. So, start treatment after consulting the specialist.

Natural ways to avoid pregnancy after having an unprotected sex within 5 days of having such sex.

Natural ways to avoid pregnancy after having an unprotected sex within 5 days of having such sex.
Hi, natural ways work only with precautions. If you had intercourse in first and last week of period then remote chances are there. Natural ways are to calculate safe period which you can define by deducting 18 from shortest cycle and 11 from longest cycle. The time period will define duration when you need to have protection. After intercourse there is no natural way to avoid pregnancy (if happened around ovulation) but you have to take medicines.

If she gets regular period she has to wait till 10/6 for her period and only if she misses that urine test is required.

Hello sir, I got married on 29 Jan 2016 just I want to know that how many months it will take to get a pregnant to my wife and also we are not doing continuous sex because my job is far away to my home after 15 days I am coming to home for just 1 week. And that time only we are doing sex. So is it possible to get a pregnant sooner. That's it sir.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Hello. You have given only one symptom of your problem. Need little more information on the same like - is there any pain/ burning/ itching of the parts? Any pain during the menses? Since how long it's been there? Any bad or peculiar smell from the discharge? At what time of the day the discharge gets worse? Meantime, you can start taking homoeopathic medication - Kali Mur 6x and Ferrum Phos. 6x - both should be taken thrice daily for 20 days and revert me back with the details.

There is no single test ofr all stds and window period differs for each disease. You are not sure which disease you have in mind. Syphilis and Hiv can be life threatening if untreated.

Hi Monalisha if your follicle doesn't rupture then less likely you will get periods. If you are having PCOD and taking tablet Duphaston it is likely to get periods when you stop tablet as this tablet is to control period.

Hi Ritu as you are 39years it is expected that you are having low eggs. But you should not wait, try immediately with ovulation induction naturally . You should have diet rich in antioxidants. Chances of natural conception would be low. If you go for IVF you will have better chance.
