It could be due to unwanted 72, if you are not expecting period to come yet. The medicine is known to cause intermittent bleeding and may or may not delay the next cycle depending on when in the cycle it was taken.

If your girlfriend missed her period then there is a chance that she may be pregnant. There is no such thing as a safe period in young and fertile women. All days of the cycle can be considered ‘risky’ although the risk is highest midcycle (9-20th days). The only way to determine if your girlfriend is pregnant is to do a urine pregnancy test with an early morning sample of urine – this means the first sample of urine when she wakes up as this is the most concentrated sample of the day. If this is positive you will need to see a gynaecologist to discuss what you wish to do further. If the test is negative I would suggest that you wait for 15 days before repeating the test. If that one is also negative you will need to see a gynaecologist for help with further tests and treatment. The technique you have used is called the withdrawal technique for contraception. This is acceptable within long term relationships where the couple do not mind getting pregnant. It has several drawbacks including a high failure rate, sexually transmitted infections, poor sexual satisfaction and a high degree of worry or concern due to the risk of unwanted pregnancy. When the penis is erect a small amount of secretion from the glands allow for lubrication of your urethra. There may be a small drop of secretion at the tip of the penis which may not be seen with the naked eye but this drop contains over a million sperms – as you may already know you only need one sperm to fertilise an egg. When this happens around the time of ovulation the risk of pregnancy is high. In either case sperms can survive in the female genital tract for up to seven days. So please be aware that in young fertile women with regular cycles there is no such thing as ‘safe’ days where you do not need to use contraception. If you are certain that you wish to continue to be sexually active but do not wish to conceive you need better contraception than the withdrawal technique or even just condoms. Condoms will protect against sexually transmitted infections for peno vaginal intercourse but have a high failure rate where prevention of pregnancy is concerned. Please see the doctor to discuss more reliable methods of contraception so that you do not have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy and its risks in future.

It is not healthy if you not sure about the virginal secretion of your wife. First get her blood test done and if all fine then you can do what ever you want without any fear. But yes there are many bacteria that's very bad if it enters from virgina to your mouth you may have to face those bacterial and fungal infections in your mouth later.

5 Unconventional Questions About Vaginal Health

5 Unconventional Questions About Vaginal Health

Ladies, it is important that we must take good care of our body, but most of all we must pay specific attention to the health of our vagina. The vagina is a tube-like muscular structure of the female genital tract that extends from the cervix to the vulva. It is a delicate organ which is prone to injuries and infections. Complications related to urination, menstruation and sexual intercourse, all affect the vaginal health.

Here are five questions associated with vaginal problems that are commonly experienced, but rarely discussed:

  1. Why does it feel itchy before menstruation?: The hormonal cycle reduces the amount of estrogen secreted right before the period starts. This reduces the moisture content of the inner membranes of the vagina; the skin becomes thinner and slightly dry, which can cause itching. However, if the itching and burning sensation is too severe, it could be an infection and should be checked out.
  2. What is the white discharge?: The greasy white discharge is due to the ovulation cycle. It usually occurs once a month because the amount of secretion increases right before ovulation. Some women may experience this discharge more frequently, but it is nothing to worry about unless there is an unpleasant odor. Odorous discharge could be a sign of bacterial infection.
  3. How often should you have a vaginal examination?: You should get a vaginal examination at least once a year. This is important for a general health assessment and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. If you are using birth control medication, there might be irregularity in the hormonal cycles and this can lead to a number of conditions, another reason to get an annual vaginal examination.
  4. Does it smell differently at different times?: It usually smells differently for every woman and even that unique smell changes with the cycles of ovulation and menstruation due to changes in the pH level of the vagina. The normal vaginal pH value is between 3.8 and 4.6. Before menstruation, it may smell acidic followed by a bitter smell for a few days after menstruation. It may also smell differently after a workout (due to sweat) or after sex (due to lubrication). However, a foul smell accompanied by discharge, might be a cause for concern.
  5. Why does it feel dry sometimes?: Vaginal dryness is normally experienced by women after the age of 45 or after pregnancy. However, dryness is also common just before menstruation. It also happens in women who use anti-allergy medications or birth control pills because they cause dryness in all the mucous membranes of the body.

With the intercourse on 13 th, pregnancy test will come positive only on 2nd april if you r pregnant. So there is no point in doing the test now. So wait till that time. If you do not get menses by then, then you should do urine test. Also taking menstrual tablets will not bring menses if your pregnant. Sometimes because of hormonal changes, menses can get delayed.

Being In Love Will Lead You To A Healthy Heart And Life

Being In Love Will Lead You To A Healthy Heart And Life

Love:It does make the world go round. With millions of songs and movies that have this emotion in its center, can it really be any other way? From early life, love acts as a security blanket from our parents, a growing up adventure with siblings and an out of the world experience with pets. When you learn to care and love, it becomes a life habit that helps you find happiness in all situations.

In several Harvard studies over the years on finding the 'secret of happiness'and the connection between happiness, health, and love, one common undisputed fact emerged that love and good relationships keep you healthier and happier. There really is no medicine like having someone to love and share a life with. Note that you need these reasons for being in love but it is great to know them any way.

  1. The heart and love connection: Our heart has been connected with the emotion of love for so many reasons. Historically, the heart was thought to be the seat to thinking, emotions and memories. It beating extra hard during excitement and love gave an automatic connection to the two. This popular notion continued to take center stage even after it was scientifically proven that the heart only pumped blood while the brain took up other functionalities. The association remains strong until date where the beating heart as a life source is associate with love - which makes life a happy place.
  2. Love can boost your immune system: A research by Ronald Glazer and Jan Kiecolt-Glaser suggested that couples who engaged in positive conflict resolution had a higher functioning immune system than those who didn't. Which means, if you get into an argument, you need to play fair and play nice. Couples who argued and stonewalled showed a larger decline in their immediate immune system functioning. Some connection!
  3. Love more, live longer: According to a 2004 study by the CDC, married couples had the lowest mortality rates. Generally speaking, people who are in committed, loving relationships experience less stress which translates to improved heart health. Happy and loving relationships also coax us into giving up risky behaviours like smoking, especially when you want to raise a family. This in turn propels a healthy lifestyle.
  4. It can reduce your pain: Pain is a feeling when we are physically harmed internally or externally and its intensity is controlled by our brain. But the heart plays an equally important role in its intensity - i.e. reducing it. If you hold the hand of the person you love, it can minimize your feelings of pain. No wonder then that women in labor hold their husband's hand to tide through the pain!
  5. Love can keep your heart happy: Love increases the feeling of bliss and elevates you into a different sphere of optimism, energy and sense of well being - all of which go into keeping your heart healthy.

My wife is 7 months pregnant. Which fruits she must eat? She drinks mosambi juice daily.
I suggest your wife to take lots of fresh fruits rather then their juices bcoz lots of fibre is required in pregnancy to combat the slowing of metabolism. She can consume any fruit except papaya. As it's seeds are abortifacient. And if you have juices then make sure they are home made and not from any vendor outside. As there are high chances of getting your stomach upset.

Preventing Uterine Cancer

Preventing Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer and it mostly affects the middle aged women. The uterus of a woman is a muscular organ. The cancer can affect any part of the uterus and is more common in women having obesity, diabetes and hypertension. In most cases, the cancer starts in the endometrium, hence called endometrial cancer. Uterine cancer can be cured using any of the following methods:

  1. Surgical removal of the uterus along with ovaries, lymph nodes and fallopian tubes
  2. Radiation therapy
  3. Chemotherapy

Although uterine cancer is curable, it's always a better option to prevent it. You cannot control all the causes for uterine cancer like those related to heredity. But other than that, here are a few ways in which you can prevent suffering from uterine cancer:

  1. Control body weight: Keep your body weight in control. Obesity can pose a huge risk of getting affected with uterine cancer. The fat in the body produces estrogen, which promotes the growth of uterine lining that is the Endometrium and may lead to Endometrial cancer.
  2. Breast feed: If you are lactating, then the risk of the cancer decreases, as breast feeding decreases ovulation as well as estrogen activities.
  3. Treat abnormal bleeding: If you are suffering from any type of abnormal bleeding, be that heavy periods, bleeding even after you reached menopause or if you start bleeding between two period cycles, consult your doctor immediately. Abnormal bleeding is the symptom of endometrial hyperplasia, which might eventually turn cancerous.
  4. Exercise: As already said earlier, keep your weight under control to avoid uterine cancer. Exercise to avoid increase in weight leading to obesity. It also reduces the estrogen level in your body.
  5. Healthy food: Healthy food is the key to avoid any disease, be that a common cold or uterine cancer. Eat a healthy and balanced diet everyday to be fit and bouncing. 
  6. Birth control pills: It is believed that the intake of birth control pills helps to keep uterine cancer at bay.

So eat healthy, exercise and adopt healthy habits. Then nothing can stop you from enjoying life to the fullest.
