Hi lybrate-user. It's possible that you might be pregnant after intercourse. You can take medicines to terminate the pregnancy safely but before that make sure of your status. Please do a pregnancy test and check and only if it is positive we can start with the medicine.

Pregnancy test will come positive only after 5 - 7 days of missed period. You need to repeat the test after 4 days and do not forget february has 29 days. Symptoms which you had are suggesting that your menses are about to come. You should have taken i-pill after the sex. If you have regular sex then oc pills like novelon is the best option.

Your friend had unprotected sex on 11th day of her menses . The day of having sex matter. If your friend is having regular cycles (28 days), the Ovulation(release of egg) occurs on 14th day of the start of menses. Two days before (12th&13th) And two days after(15th & 16th) ovulation is the fertile period. Having unprotected sex during fertile period can result in pregnancy. If period is delayed, then wait for 7 days If period comes then her problem is over. If periods does not come, then get the pregnancy test or ultrasound to confirm or exclude pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, the consult Gynaecologist to give medicines for withdrawal bleeding.

You will need to check that she is not suffering from some psychological problem. If she remains happy otherwise but doesnot show interest in sex, then talk to her- instead of insisting for an intercourse spend romantic time with her, talk to her a lot. If she is generally low on energy and sad, then you should consult a doctor.

Please have intercourse from day 16 to day 25 of your cycle. Count the first day of your period as day one and then calculate. Ovulation roughly occurs 14 days before the next period is due. Accordingly, these should your fertile days. You can also use ovulation kits that are available in the market.

insertion of IUCD in my wife five days ago. From the first day antibiotic starts, but excess lekoria leaks from vagina uptill now, if during leakage of lecoria we can intercross without any infection, or we should avoid uptill it clear.

Hello- Vaginal discharge after IUCD insertion is due to irritation of soft uterine wall with this metallic device. It is like just poking finger in your eyes. Consult your gynecologist (which has performed the insertion) or start utero-protective ayurvedic medicines instead of using antibiotic and subsiding infection.

First of all you should relax many women do not experience full satisfaction until one year, you should spend more time on foreplay which should include each other's body touching and exploring, use sexual fantasy and if both of you like then go for oral sex. For pregnancy have sex regularly.

Take extra care of your skin during pregnancy if you are prone to rashes. Take showers whenever you need to and change your underwear at regular intervals. Cotton is the most comfortable and preferable as it lets the skin breath and is quite absorbent.

Hi Sivasen. Normally periods begin within 5-7 days after stopping progesterone tablets. Please mention which medicines you were taking and for how long so we can help you specifically. Incase you have not responded to progesterone we can add estrogen also and that you solve the problem. All the best
