Six months is too short a period to assess for fertility if you have got your wife tested for it then you should get your semen analysis also done revert back with the report then you will be guided accordingly.

Do you have any vaginal infection or worm infection, what dose you are taking. Yes, it is not advisable to get pregnant while taking this medicine. Long-term use of fluconazole can harm an unborn baby or cause birth defects. Fluconazole can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. So follow your doctors advice, she is right.

Reduce sweets, salt and bad fats but take a high protein diet like toned milk, curd, boiled eggs which are filling and one does not feel hungry for hours. A katori of nuts taken along with roasted chane help beat hunger pangs besides giving good proteins + healthy fats. Exercise more & do relax with yoga. Eat more raw seasonal fruits and vegetables & cut down every food causing distention e g. Pulses & sprouts.

Prevention Of Recurrent Kidney Stones!

DM - Nephrology, DNB (Nephrology), MBBS , MD - Medicine
Nephrologist, Mumbai
Prevention Of Recurrent Kidney Stones!

Prevention of Recurrent Calcium Stones:


● Prevention of recurrent calcium stones (which are usually composed primarily of calcium oxalate) is aimed at decreasing the concentrations of the lithogenic factors (calcium and oxalate) and at increasing the concentrations of inhibitors of stone formation, such as citrate. Achieving these goals may require both dietary modification and the administration of appropriate medications. Metabolic evaluation at baseline and during follow-up will help guide the choice of the optimal preventive regimen. 

● A variety of dietary modifications and drug therapies can reduce the likelihood of recurrence of calcium oxalate stones. From the viewpoint of diet, increasing the intake of fluid, dietary calcium, potassium and phytate and decreasing the intake of oxalate, animal protein, sucrose, fructose, sodium, supplemental calcium, and supplemental vitamin c may be beneficial. 

● Among those with calcium oxalate stones, drug therapy is indicated if there is continued stone formation or if there is insufficient improvement in the urine chemistries despite attempted dietary modification over a three- to six-month period. The aim of therapy is to prevent further calcium oxalate precipitation. Since dissolution of already existing calcium stones does not occur, passage of an existing stone does not necessarily reflect a therapeutic failure in a patient known to have renal stones prior to the institution of therapy. Initial drug therapy varies with the metabolic abnormality that is present. 

● The 24-hour urine is an essential component of the initial evaluation and guides recommendations for prevention. The response to dietary or drug therapy is monitored by repeat 24-hour urine collections. The goal of therapy is to reverse the abnormalities detected during the initial workup (eg, low urine volume, hypercalciuria, hypocitraturia, and hyperoxaluria). We routinely obtain a 24-hour urine collection at six to eight weeks after therapy has begun to assess the impact of the intervention. Another component of monitoring is periodic imaging. Limiting radiation exposure is important, as individuals with recurrent stones often have undergone multiple imaging procedures around the times of acute stone events.

Dear Lybrate user, It is not clear from your description regarding medicines you are taking. In case you are taking some contraceptive pills for (21 days in a month) then additional intake of pills is not required. Otherwise, one has to take. However, those pills may have interaction with medicines you are taking now.

Spotting is also observed some times in pregnancy too. So, please use a pregnancy kit to detect if you are pregnant or not. Further medicine will depend on the result.

I am unmarried and I am16 week pregnancy but I am unmarried kya abortions possible ho payegi. Kya.
You should first inform your parents and with them visit a local gynaecologist ,or a govt hospital for the needful ,do not delay .MTP upto 20 weeks is legal in India ,but as duration of pregnancy increases chances of complication increase .As you are <18 years your parents consent will be required. Please do not go to any untrained person.
