Yes it is possible but chances r slim as rarely ovulation can get delayed. If you do not want her to be pregnant, you shoulkd have given i-pill immediately. As you sex was on 5th march, you need to wait till 20 march for the menses to come or else do the urine test on 20th march. Normally pregnancy test is done after 7 days of missed period, but in your case it will not come positive on on that day even if she is pregnant.

Stomach Pains in Pregnancy at 5 months. Stomach pains in pregnancy are common, especially as your pregnancy progresses. This is usually because the muscles throughout your abdomen are stretching, along with the ligaments in your pelvis. ... All this moving and stretching can cause discomfort. he probable cause? Round ligament pain. Your uterus is getting bigger every day, and the muscles and ligaments supporting it are stretching out to accommodate the changes. That stretching can bring a bit of pain, especially when you change positions, cough or are particularly active. These mild aches and jabs are normal and may persist as your uterus continues to grow. Having Nutritious Diet during Pregnancy Here is how you can make your diet more nutritious during the fifth month of pregnancy. Try to eat as much as fresh fruits and vegetables as possible. They supply essential minerals and vitamins to your body. Pulses and cereals are rich sources of protein which are required for the growth of the baby. Nuts are also rich in protein. Additionally nuts also provide fiber and are rich in antioxidants. Eat high fiber foods as a fiber rich diet can have many benefits for pregnant women. Include fiber rich foods in your diet even if you feel that it lacks taste or variety. Foods to be Avoided during Pregnancy Some food items are considered unsafe for pregnant women. Read on to find about the food items which should avoided during pregnancy. Avoid carbonated drinks and canned foods. Whenever you are having snacks or having meals, avoid foods high in salt such as chips, pickles and olives. You must not smoke or drink. Avoid eating raw and undercooked meat or any kind of seafood as they sometimes contain harmful bacteria. Do not eat raw eggs also. Do not eat too much chocolate as chocolate also contains caffeine which is not good for pregnant

Yes you can conceive after proper Ayurveda treatment. Its not good to conceive when you have abnormality in reproductive organs, so consult Ayurveda physician privately.

Pregnancy - Changes After Third Month

Pregnancy - Changes After Third Month

6 Changes in your body you can expect during the second trimester of pregnancy

The second trimester (starting from the 4th and lasting through the 6th month) of pregnancy is considered to be the easiest for a woman. During this time, your energy is at its peak and instances of fatigue and morning sickness are less severe. Your baby, on the other hand, continues to develop inside your womb.

In addition to these, you can expect big changes within your body during the second trimester, which include:

1. Backaches: The additional weight that you gain during these past few months begins to bear down on your back, making it achy and tired. For relief from pressure, there are certain things that you can do such as using a chair that offers strong support to your back; sleeping on the side with a pillow placed in between your legs and wearing shoes that come with solid arch support.

2. Bleeding gums: Hormonal changes occurring during this period bring about a greater flow of blood to the gums, making them extremely sensitive and prone to bleeding. The gums don’t remain tender for long and return to their normal form after delivery. But during these three months, make sure to use toothbrushes with softer bristles and being gentle when flossing.

3. Congestion and bleeding of the nose: In addition to making your gums tenderer, hormonal changes also bring about the swelling of mucous membranes that line your nose. These changes can lead you to have a stuffy nose as well as may even cause your nose to bleed very easily. To clear any nasal congestion that may occur during this period, you should use natural methods or saline drops obtained from a chemist.

4. Hair growth: Pregnancy also sees your hair growing rapidly due to the action of the hormones on the hair follicles. Additionally, you also experience hair growth in places where hair is sparse. To remove unwanted hair, you should stick to tweezing or shaving, waxing and the use of depilatories aren’t recommended by medical experts as they aren’t considered safe for the baby.

5. White vaginal discharge: White vaginal discharge during this time is very common. The discharge ensures that harmful yeast or bacteria don’t breed in your private areas. But if the discharge takes on a foul smell and a green or yellow colour, you should immediately consult a gynaecologist as you may be down with a vaginal infection.

6. Leg cramps: A very common occurrence during the second trimester, leg cramps usually last through the last leg of pregnancy, which is the third trimester as well. The reasons behind their occurrence may be hormonal, weight-related or deficiency of magnesium and calcium.

Refreshing cups of tea, coffee?

Refreshing cups of tea, coffee?

Refreshing Cups of Tea, Coffee?

It is a medically known fact that tea, coffee, and colas contain a chemical caffeine which is responsible for giving you the feeling of mental and physical alertness. Caffeine is also present to some extent in chocolate.

If you take these beverages only very occasionally,a single cup of coffee can increase your blood pressure by up to 10mm Hg. However if you take it every day, your body gets used to its effects and there may not be any effect on your blood pressure, even in the long run. Women who suffer from low blood pressure will actually benefit from an occasional cuppa.

People who have an established history of heart disease need to be cautious if they take more than 2 cups of coffee and equivalent per day. In the long run, caffeine may increase anxiety and depression.

On the other hand, long-term caffeine intake of more than 2 cups a day may reduce age-related memory loss, Parkinson's disease, liver cirrhosis and onset of diabetes.
If you want to make your cuppa super efficient and boost your metabolism further, just sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon powder on top.It may just help you loose weight faster...

Medicines are right. Nothing in life is without side effects but when effects outweigh side effects they are advised. Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. This sometimes is tricky in PCOS so have patience and continue with Gynecologist infertility specialist for further management.

Hello, Don't be worried about your problem.It happens in many cases.The vagina is such an organ which will receive as per its capacity and urge.But be sure after ejaculation inside vagina it receives sperm as required and returns extra.So try to lie on elevating both leg 15 minutes.Full sperm will be inside for some time,then it will come out.
