How to get pregnant fast I already try in ovulation period please tell me what to do What my hubby and me can do.

How to get pregnant fast I already try in ovulation period please tell me what to do What my hubby and me can do.
Dear lybrate-user, In a natural cycle, by having regular intercourse during fertile (ovulatory) period, the chances of conception are 5% to 7%. With the help of various Assisted Reproductive Techniques, these may increase to 15% to 40%. Since you are young and are already aware of the fertile period, I would suggest you to be patient and try for a few months by having natural relations during this fertile period itself. Remain stress free and enjoy this phase of your marriage. My best wishes are with you.

Most chances of conceiving are between the 8-16 day of periods, day 1 means the first day of periods. Wait till the date your periods were due and after that get a home pregnancy testing kit.

Lybrate-user, firstly why you want to go for blood test for pregnancy. Urine kits are very sensitive and can detect early pregnancy as soon as on the first day of missed periods. Just make sure you do the test on the first morning sample.

Hi lybrate-user, pain could be due ovarian cyst or pregnancy also. Chances of getting pregnant are low but still screening should be done.

Calorie Count of Your Favourite Indian Dishes

Calorie Count of Your Favourite Indian Dishes

Indians have always been known for their passion of food, which is usually rich and creamy. With the recent calorie consciousness setting in, the Indian foods are also blamed for being rich in calories. It is therefore time to take a step back and watch the calories that you are packing with each meal.

Listed below are some common Indian foods, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, and their corresponding caloric value. The next time you plan your meal, take a conscious decision based on your overall health. This does not mean you should not relish these exotic dishes. Make sure if you have had a ghee-laden gaajar ka halwa, make sure to burn that extra calories by extending your gym time.

  1. Chicken curry: This popular dish with curry, chicken, and other spices like ginger, saffron and other spices contain about 600 kcal for a serving.
  2. Daal: About 300 g of cooked dal has about 350 kcal. The good news with daal is that gives the maximum amount of proteins, especially for non-meat eaters.
  3. Biryani: A bowl of vegetable biryani contains about 550 kcal while chicken biryani gives about 800 kcal. Again, this depends on the additional ingredients like the amount of ghee or oil used and other ingredients.
  4. Korma: While the chicken korma gives up to 900 kcal, a bowl of vegetable curry gives about 350 kcal.
  5. Samosas: A meat samosa has about 320 kcal, while a vegetable samosa has about 250 kcal.
  6. Chole bature: This fried food with big sized puris and chickpeas pack in about 450 kcal per serving.
  7. Pav bhaji: Another popular evening snack with fried bread and gravy, this has loads of butter applied to the bread and so it is not surprise that you add about 450 kcal with a plate of pav bhaji.
  8. Jalebi: This popular Indian sweet is made by deep-frying wheat-flour batter in circular shapes and soaking it in sugary syrup. Whether eaten hot or cold, it gives you about 460 kcal per serving. Add a spoonful of rich creamy rabdi to it and there would be another 150 kcal.
  9. Ras malai: This rich creamy sweet is extremely popular in Northern parts of India and provides about 250 kcal per serving
  10. Halwa: If loaded with ghee, a cupful of carrot halwa can give you about 250 kcal.Onion pakoras: This popular spicy snack contains deep fried gram flour and onions and packs in about 200 kcal when 3 pieces are eaten.

Now that you know how much calories some of your regular foods are carrying, make a mental note of all the foods you are eating on a daily basis, and make sure it does not cross about 2000 per day.

There is nothing extra you need to do apart from having regular intercourse during the fertile period of your menstrual cycle. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

If the test was negative after 7 days of missed period then you need to repeat it again after 7 days till you get your menses. Even faint second line is also positive and you have to read the reports within 5 min of putting urine. Also use good company card like velocit card to avoid mistakes bcos of card.

Hello, HAIR FALL DURING PrEGNANCY IS DUE TO progesterone effect and this can be countered by increasing your daily water intake to 3-4 litres and not just amla juice per se.

Hi lybrate-user! terminating a pregnancy is possible with medicines safely upto 9 weeks. Beyond that its best to opt for surgical procedure. Also taking correct dosage and techniques is very important for a successful procedure. These days chemists advise inadequate dosages or technique which results in severe problems and incomplete procedure.

Menses most probably will come on time as usual menses. Sometimes menses can come early bcos of i-pill. As you took pill on wednesday, you have to wait till normal menses date. If they miss by 7 days or more then only you have to take urine pregnancy test.

The chances of pregnancy are from day 10 to day 18 only. So any unprotected sex on other days is pretty safe.

My wife is having infertility problem one of her report says suggestive of non secretory endometrium. What does it means?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Non secretory endometrium refers to a phase of the menstrual cycle before ovulation. The endometrium becomes secretory after ovulation under the influence of progesterone. There are two phases to the endometrium. The first half of the cycle the endometrium grows under the influence of estrogen only= proliferative phase. The second half of the cycle progesterone is added if ovulation occurs= secretory phase. By definition on your report the endometrium was not secretory. In brief: 2nd phase absent.

My wife is 30 years old and she has big fibroids in her uterous. We have married only 4 monthm. Has there any possibility for her pregnancy?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Fibroids that change the shape of the uterine cavity (submucous) or are within the cavity (intracavitary) decrease fertility by about 70% and removal of these fibroids increases fertility by 70%. Other types of fibroids, those that are within the wall (intramural) but do not change the shape of the cavity, or those that bulge outside the wall (subserosal) do not decrease fertility, and removal of these types of fibroids does not increase fertility. Fibroids that bulge into the uterine cavity (submucous) or are within the cavity (intracavitary) may sometimes cause miscarriages. The fertilized egg comes down the fallopian tube and takes hold in the lining of the uterus. If a submucosal fibroid happens to be nearby, it can thin out the lining and decreases the blood supply to the developing embryo. The fibroid may also cause some inflammation in the lining directly above it. The fetus cannot develop properly, and miscarriage may result. However, with the next pregnancy, it is possible that the egg will settle in another location, and pregnancy may proceed without problems. However, if you do have a miscarriage and a fibroid is found bulging into the uterine cavity, it is advisable to have it removed.
