Your BMI is 22.7 which is absolutely normal (18-25). This is the perfect age 924 years) for you to get pregnant. To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. 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.

lybrate-user, Results show that there is hypothyroidism, due to which there will be problem with menstruation. There can be irregular periods or heavy bleeding. The report mentions some standard values for reference. That is only for informing people about what should be the level of TSH during three different periods of pregnancy. You need to start treatment for hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Hi. I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago after my period had ended 3 days before. Now I am experiencing cramps and tender breasts. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy? Or could I be ovulating or experiencing early pms before my next period in two weeks? I usually get pms early. Please help me! Thanks!

Treatments of Infertility

FIMSA, FICOG, MNAMS (Obstetrtics & Gynaecology) , MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Treatments of Infertility

Female infertility is considered as the inability of conceiving. As per WHO it is described as the inability to be pregnant, maintain and carry forward a pregnancy to its full term. It is often of two types:

  1. Primary Infertility: This is the inability to give birth to a baby either due to the inability to become pregnant or maintain a pregnancy, which includes stillborn and miscarriage.
  2. Secondary Infertility: This refers to the inability to give birth when there is already a live birth or the woman was pregnant.

The causes of infertility can vary from being acquired or genetic. However, following factors are largely responsible for infertility:

  1. Genetic: Some genes can lead to mutation leading to infertility like, in case of BMP15 gene there is a hypergonadotrophic ovarian failure which causes infertility.
  2. Acquired: This is caused by factors like age, smoking, sexually transmitted diseases, obesity, body weight, eating disorders, diseases like diabetes, thrombophilia and also radiation and chemotherapy.

The treatment for infertility usually depends on the cause, age, duration of time for which a person has been infertile and preference of the patient. Infertility is believed to be a complex disorder and the treatment involves a huge amount of physical, financial and psychological commitments. All this also requires a lot of time. Some women might need just a minimum of two therapies to attain fertility while others might require different treatment before they can conceive.

Treatment is largely aimed to restore the fertility either by means of medication and surgery or help in reproduction with the help of some procedures.

Fertility Restoration through medication

This is the main treatment for women who are infertile because of ovulation disorders. These drugs include:

  1. Gonadotropins: These are injected to stimulate the ovaries. Drugs like Menopur, Repronex, Follistim AQ, Gonal-F, Bravelle restore the production of eggs, while Ovidrel and Pregnyl are used for maturing the eggs and for their release.
  2. Clomiphene citrate: This is taken orally and stimulates ovulation by releasing more Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone from the pituitary gland.
  3. Metformin: This is used in females who have PCOS and also when insulin resistance plays a major role in infertility.
  4. Bromocriptine: Used when the infertility is caused due to excess prolactin production.
  5. Letrozole: This also induces ovulation

Fertility Restoration through surgery

Surgical procedures can amend the problem of infertility. However, these treatments are very rare these days owing to the success of other fertility treatments. These include:

  1. Tubal ligation reversal surgery: In case a tubal ligation has been performed it can be reversed by reconnecting the tubes again through surgery.
  2. Hysteroscopic surgery: This corrects or removes the abnormalities that cause infertility. This surgery can correct the shape of the uterus, remove endometrial polyps and improve chance of getting pregnant.
  3. Tubal surgeries: In case of blocked fallopian tubes laproscopic surgery can be performed to dilate the tubes, removed blockages or create a new opening.

Assistance in Reproduction through techniques

The most common used techniques for reproduction assistance are:

  1. Intrauterine insemination or IUI: In this about million healthy sperms are put in the uterus at the time of ovulation.
  2. Assisted reproductive technology: In this mature eggs are retrieved from a woman and this is then fertilized with sperms in a dish in the lab. Once the fertilization is done the embryo is placed in the uterus for further development. IVF is the most common and effective assisted reproductive technology. This procedure takes place over weeks with several blood tests and hormone injections.

Dealing with infertility is not easy and can be emotionally and physically draining. To cope with the various tests and treatments of infertility one should be fully prepared, eat a healthy diet, exercise reach out for help and support of family and friends and look for other options like a donor egg, adoption or no children.

Dear Lybrate User, At your age, because of hormonal changes, it is likely that you will feel little anxious. Please check with your Doctor if the medicines have any side effects and what can you do to keep it to the minimum. In my opinion, it will be very helpful for you, if you talk to a Counsellor. It appears that you are having some suppressed emotions. You will get a healthy outlet for your suppressed emotions when you will talk to a Counsellor. The Counsellor will also help you to manage your this phase (menopause) in life. All the best and take care.

Yes PCOS can be controlled with diet and lifestyle modification. You should start doing regular exercise for weight although it will take time to loose weight but it is helpful, Secondly take adequate nutritious diet including fruits and vegetable and low fat dairy products. Drink lots of juices and water. Quit coffee, canned and fried food.

Which Food Items Should Be Avoided When on Homeopathic Medicines?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Which Food Items Should Be Avoided When on Homeopathic Medicines?

Homeopathic medicine is the field of science that involves the production of medicine using natural herbs and other substances. In this, the extracts are obtained from different sources and mixed together in right dosages. These dosages are prescribed by homeopathic doctors since they are able to understand how each extract serves a different purpose, and that they would be effective in their action only if they are combined in the correct proportion. An increase or decrease in the level used can render a homeopathic medicine ineffective or make it harmful for the body. Along with the medicines, doctors also usually suggest some dietary precautions that need to be followed. And here is a list of some food items that the doctors advise their patients to stop taking while undergoing homeopathic treatment. 

Food items to avoid

It is said that each food item has a power and effectiveness level of its own and needs to be taken in certain quantities so that you can enjoy its full benefits. This is also one of the major reasons why people who are taking homeopathic medicines are advised to avoid a few food items that might be a regular part of their diet, in order to make sure that that particular food does not interfere with the action of the medicines. This is true in cases where, some foods with strong odour or taste can hinder the medicine's action by overpowering its effectiveness. 

So here is what you should avoid: 

  1. Drinking alcohol, chewing tobacco and smoking must not be continued when you are taking homeopathic medicines.
  2. Most doctors advise the patients not to take coffee, garlic and mint leaves, since these have strong odours and tastes. But coffee at times may not be restricted, since in few medicines, coffee beans are used for grinding the crude extract. 
  3. Non vegetarian foods might have to be avoided during the time period of medication if so advised.
  4. Sour foods like sour fruits or sour curd must be avoided in case you are taking medicines for skin disorders.
  5. Spicy and oily foods and other foods that give out a pungent smell must be avoided if medicines are being taken for gastric problems. 
  6. Artificially treated foods and foods made with preservatives need to be avoided, if the person has to take the medicines for kidney problems like kidney stones and renal failure. 
  7. Patients who are taking medicine for diabetes must avoid drinking aerated drinks.

Generally, people are told to take their meals at the right time and no irregularity must set in when it comes to this.

Usually after delivery if mother is feeding the baby she does not get menstual periods and it is natures contraception. As she stops feeding the baby the menstruation will start on its own. But it is not 100% effective and there are chances of pregnancy. If you have doubts then do urine pregnancy test with the strip available at the medical store or consult a gynaecologist. If in case she is pregnant and you do not want it then you have valid reasons to terminate it and any gynaecologist will help.

Hello- If menstrual flow is obstructed the blood clots inside uterus and comes out in next menstrual cycle. Obstruction in menses blood is due to improper bowel/constipation just before the menses. It can be cured by the use of Fal Ghrita.

Kya pregnancy k douran sugarcane aur anaar khana acha rehta hai?
Which fruits are mostly she have to eat?
Hello, A pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.
