If you are on bedrest you can slightly elevate the foot end by keeping pillows under your feet. YESyou will have to take complete bed rest Avoid constipation by drinking lots of water fruits and salads As for the pain you will have to get examined by your gynaec.

Hello- Well, if the bleeding seems to be in a decreasing manner, nothing to worry about. The bleeding that you get after the ECP(I pill) is like menstrual period. Sometimes the cycle can get erratic after taking the ECP, so just wait for your next period now, and yes, in the meanwhile, practice safe sex if you must have it.

There is no such a thing as weekly contraceptive pill. What you r telling i.e. Instafree 72 is an emergency contraceptive and just to be used after accidental sex not regulary. For monthly use, there r mala d, mala n available for free in any govt hospital. If you need pvt tt, consult me.

Hi, I have had sex with my fiancee in FERTILE period. But she took Unwanted 72 in 10 hrs. Naturally, within 6 days, she had withdrawal bleeding. Now my question is WHEN she can expect her NEXT PERIOD. Is it 30 days from LAST REGULAR PERIOD OR is it 30 days from withdrawal bleeding. Please suggest. Thanks.

30 days from withdrawal bleeding ,only if she has had a good period like flow for three to four days, and in case she just had spotting, then in that case she might even miss her date, in which case you will have to do a Urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy. Of positive she will have to follow a new line of drugs to be taken for termination, and if Negative, she will eventually have her period without any intervention in a variable time of plus minus 6 to 7 days from the expected date.

My wife period start on 20 and ends on 21 of the month which is the day to have unprotected sex and not a chance of pregnancy.

This method is called safe period method which practically is unsafe if couple wants to avoid pregnancy for sure. Pregnancy can occur around ovulation day so depending on interval between two periods calculations can be done, I am not sure from your question what is interval between cycles. If it is 30 days then days 1 to 12 and 19-30 are considered as safe.

Chances of retained products are nil as she was free from symptoms from date of delivery till 13 July. Heavy cycle needs to be investigated by ultrasound to rule out infections and fibroid make sure that she was not on hormones due to prevention of pregnancy and had taken tablets like unwanted or ipill do get back here with reports for more guidance.

Hello, the mid cycle bleed could be ovulation bleed, but anyhow rule out pregnancy with a serum beta hcg test first as you were sexually active in your fertile period.

Is it Safe to Have Sex During Pregnancy?

Is it Safe to Have Sex During Pregnancy?

Sex during pregnancy - is it safe?

If you're pregnant, you may be curious or worry whether it's safe to have sex and how you can go about it. The good thing is, it's perfectly safe to have sex during pregnancy. You might find that your sex drive is uncontrollable during your pregnancy you may go through phases of being very sex driven, and then phases of not wanting sex at all so it's important to know about sex during pregnancy and what you can expect.

While sex is safe for most couples during pregnancy, the most difficult part may be having sex in a way that's enjoyable and comfortable for you particularly if you're far along with your pregnancy. It can take a little time to explore and experiment together to work out what's comfortable and pleasurable for you both, especially if you have a bump in the way! your breasts might feel tender, and it may be uncomfortable if your partner penetrates too deeply, so it might be better to lie on your sides with your partner behind; this way he won't put any pressure on your bump but can penetrate and stimulate you at the same time.

You can also:
- straddle your partner as he lies on his back. This way, there is no pressure on your belly and you can control the pace.
- lie side by side with your partner facing your back, and entering you from behind.
- support yourself on your knees and elbows, and have your partner kneel and enter you from behind.

Be aware that it's common for women to experience some bleeding during intercourse whilst pregnant, especially in their first trimester. This is cause by the normal swelling of capillaries in the cervix, which can burst when irritated during sex. Spotting (random spots of blood) is generally nothing to worry about, however you should mention it to your midwife just to let her know if this does happen. However, if you are ever losing a lot of blood, you should consult your doctor immediately and get checked out at the hospital.

It's important to talk about sex with your partner. Your partner's desire for sex may equally increase or decrease during your pregnancy, and be aware that he might feel very cautious about having sex with the fear of hurting you or the baby, so be sure to communicate what feels good and positions that you're comfortable with. Try experimenting with different sexual positions to find ones that suit you both. It may take time to get used to it, particularly as your bump grows bigger, however there is no reason why you should stop having sex just because of your pregnancy.

If you have any queries or worries, the best thing to do is consult your midwife or doctor and they can offer guidance and reassurance about sex during your pregnancy.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is better to give a sufficient gap between last episode and next conception. Usually after a miscarriage periods return after 6 weeks. So if one feels healthy enough, then can try for next conception. It is better to take tablet of folic acid daily even before the conception. Therefore, you may wait for 6 weeks or if you are feeling fit and healthy even earlier you can go for that. Thanks.
