What is the procedure for abortion? Also, if I undergo an abortion at my first conception, will I become infertile thereafter? Please advise.

Either medicines or surgery. Unless the process of abortion is complicated with infection or heavy bleeding usually there shouldn't be a problem.

Dear lybrate user it is better if you discuss this with your family members since abortion may lead problem in conceiving in future they will definitely understand you, do not discuss with your friends and outside people sometimes in fear only we commit some mistakes for which we repent later and it is not a crime to have a baby it will bring more happiness among you and both families.

Its happen at the time of menopause, relax. Take some ayurvedic medicine, which really helpful for you. Eg_satavari churna_1 tsp+khadi shakar_1tsp 3 time in a day before food. Methi and jawas (flex seeds) best for hormonal problem. Take methi 5 gram and flex seeds 50 gram daily in your food.

Conditions When You Should Avoid Sex During Pregnancy

Conditions When You Should Avoid Sex During Pregnancy

Love making during pregnancy is less talked about because it is a customary to distance pregnant ladies from intimacy. Many women even find it very uncomfortable to have sex during the pregnancy period as their body gets bigger. However, there are other ways you and your partner can opt for to satisfy your needs like caressing, holding each other and kissing. There are some partners who feel sex during pregnancy is the best moment for sex, while there are others who are feared and have their own concerns.

Sex During Pregnancy
Sex during pregnancy should be avoided. If at all done should be gentle, it should avoid pressing abdomen. However, it is safe in second trimester if woman is comfortable. Yes, it is alright for partners to have sex from second trimester onwards, if the woman has had a healthy pregnancy.  This is because the thick mucus plug which seals the cervix in pregnant women safeguards the baby against any infection. The strong muscles of the uterus as well as the amniotic sac, keep the little one safe in the womb. NO damage can be caused by the penis of your partner to the baby while having sex. Women can feel some movement of their baby after orgasm. Couples need not worry about the baby, as in no case it would provide discomfort to the baby. The chances of having a premature baby are reduced at times by having sex regularly.

Conditions to Avoid Sex

  1. The conditions in pregnancy when it is better to avoid sex mainly include times when any spotting or bleeding occurs during early pregnancy. In such a case, the Doctors advise not to have sex for at least 14 weeks.
  2. Your doctor may even advise a pregnant woman not to have sex if she has a history of cervical illness, has had heavy bleeding, had a vaginal infection, and in case of low lying placenta.
  3. Pregnant woman experiencing frequent abdominal pain or cramps must also avoid sex during their pregnancy.


Sexual Behavior to Avoid During Pregnancy

  1. There are 2 ways that are not safe and must be avoided while having sex during pregnancy. The first way is oral sex. Any pregnant woman must not allow their spouse to blow air into the vaginal region. Blowing air into the vagina can cause air embolism, and this can be potentially serious for the mother as well as the baby.
  2. Pregnant women should not have sex with partners who have unknown sexual history as there are chances that he is infected with sexually transmitted diseases like HIV or Herpes. The diseases can be easily transmitted to the baby if you have sex with such a partner. It is better to avoid any complications and stay away from sex during the pregnancy period.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You will have to wait till the next period date is due. Do not panic. Pregnancy test is done after 5 days of missed period. I don't think you understand the physiology of periods and pregnancy prevention. Call me for a clear idea so that panic situations are avoided.

You can conceive only if your ovulation date falls at the time when you have sexual relationship with your husband and even that is not confirmed that you will conceive in that attempt only pregnancy is a matter of chance no body can give yiu guarantee.

There are 30 per cent chances that you shall develop gestational diabetes again in next pregnancy as well as you have been gdm in last pregnancy. Gdm is not the cause of secondary infertility for sure. Please feel free to discuss further in detail. Regards.

Dysmenorrhoea is one of the commonest female disorders at any age during reproductive period. To prevent it one can take simple medicines like cyclopam 1 at a time. If it is not better you should prefer homoeopathic treatment.
