Hope you are feeding her. Babies fed on mother's milk rarely fall sick. Remember the baby was surrounded by a sterile environment while you carried her for 9 months at 37 degree temperature. Hygiene & temperature are very important. Daily bath, soft cotton clothes with no synthetics. I am not for synthetic diapers too, keep them for outside (if you have to go out otherwise avoid) use cotton diapers only. No water is needed or top feeds. Stomach is tiny, feeding has to be every 2 hours which gradually increase to 3 hours and at 3 months babies do give a gap of 4-5 hours. Avoid too many visitors as infection risk is high. Maintain temperature of ac around 30, not lower. About you- eat a high protein food like milk, curds, nuts, pure ghee, butter but no junk food. Eat food which promote lactation- dates, ajwain, jeera, heeng & lots of water. Weight of baby increases to double the birth weight at 3 months when the neck of baby is settled and stable. If birth weight is 3 kg, expect the baby to be 6 kgs at 3 months and 10 kgs at 1 year. Do ask about other doubts. I presumed that you are feeding & no solids before 5 months.

How old is your friend? some people do have heavy flow. That's normal. But it is important that she rules out any complications. Ask to take a scan first. A blood test - cbc and a thyroid test is also necessary. Get back to s with these results.

Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?
Ovum or egg releases on 14 or 15th day from the first day of the menstruation in a woman having regular cycles. It servives for 24 hrs only but sperm survives 4 days after ejaculation inside the uterus. So if a person had sex between 10th to 17 th day of a monthly cycle then there will be more chance of getting pregnant and the period is known as unsafe period. Home based pregnancy tests look for urinary HCG for presence of pregnancy.. for accurate result we need to perform the test after stoppage of menstruation least for one time.. But the confirmation has to be done by physician only.. Contact for any further assistance

Generally Most couples conceive within six cycles with timed intercourse. For some it’s quicker, and some longer. There are many factors that affect a couple's chance of conceiving like age, general health, reproductive health and how often you have sex. Women fertility decreases with the age advances. You should have sex at least 2-3 times each week. You can improve your chances by monitoring your ovulation, then being sure to have sex during your most fertile period. Start eating more healthily and working out, Both partners should cut out smoking. If you’re both healthy and haven’t gotten pregnant after a year of regular, unprotected sex, there might not be anything wrong, but it’s time to consult with a fertility doctor.

Painless Normal Delivery - Is it Possible?

Fellowship and Diploma in Laparoscopic Surgery, FOGSI Advanced Infertility Training, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Painless Normal Delivery - Is it Possible?

One of the most severe forms of pain is the pain that a woman experiences during the process of childbirth. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most severe, it is believed to be 8 to 10. In the earlier days, a number of women would die during childbirth and survival was considered as a second lease of life. This belief has however, changed with the advancements in medical science. The delivery has now become an almost painless procedure.

How it works: The pelvis and the lower limbs receive nerve supply through the nerves coming out of the spinal cord. A strong anesthetic is injected into the lower back to numb the pelvis and down below. This ensures that the mother is comfortable and awake during the whole procedure and is able to see the child being delivered but has reduced pain in the lower half of the body.

What are its benefits?

  1. The mother has a painless delivery and is conscious and able to see the process of delivery.
  2. Significant relief from the painful experience of childbirth. The pain induces secretion of stress hormones in the mother, which adversely affects both the mother and the child.
  3. Blood pressure is better controlled using this procedure.
  4. Additional instruments can be used during the delivery if required without the need for additional anesthesia.
  5. If required, the procedure can be converted to a cesarean section too, by adding an epidural catheter.
  6. The duration of childbirth has been significantly decreased.
  7. Suitable for patients who have preeclampsia and heart disease

It has some disadvantages too

There are minor complications, including:

  1. This can develop after the painless delivery and the onset and intensity vary from one individual to another
  2. Post-procedure headache
  3. Pain at the site of injection
  4. Difficulty during urination
  5. The normal pushing effect by the woman is reduced due to the numbness and so vacuum may be used or delivery may have to be converted to a cesarean one.
  6. In rare cases, there could also be a sudden drop in the blood pressure

Certain indications

In the following cases, the doctor would advise the mother to go for a painless delivery

  1. Medical conditions like preeclampsia, high BP, or other heart conditions
  2. Subsequent births after having had a cesarean section (VBAC – vaginal birth after cesarean)
  3. People who have previously had prolonged or complicated labor, a painless delivery is easy on both the mother and the child

When it should be best avoided

In some cases, like the ones listed below, the painless delivery should be avoided

  1. Women with bleeding disorders.
  2. Women who are on blood thinners like aspirin, heparin, etc.
  3. Women who have had prior low back surgeries
  4. Women with neurological conditions

A detailed discussion with your gynecologist is the best way to identify, if this would work for you.
