On tenth week of pregnancy I found slight heavy bleeding with some blood clot and after USG it shows My Baby is Fine with heart beat 186. My pregnancy is IUI pregnancy Please tell me the reason for bleeding and the percentage of success rate of pregnancy in these cases.
Hi sir, I am 24yrs old. I got married two years before. Since a year we are trying for a baby but the result was negative. Last may month I have undergone a scanning (USG)- Abdomen and pelvis. It was diagnosed as PCOS. My ayurvedic doctor suggested me a medicine called phalaghrita and I consumed it for two months. After that I discontinued. Til this month we are trying for a baby but the result is nil. Few websites tell female with PCOS doesn't ovulate every month or doesn't ovulate at all. So I just wanted to know m I ovulating or is there any other problem. Please help me.
I have delivered my baby through C-section. My baby has completed 5 months but yet I have not got my periods. I have not been in any relationship with my husband since the time my baby was born, hence there is no issue of pregnancy. I have been breast feeding aIso powdered milk is given. Is there any complications if I didn't get my periods? Also when can I expect my periods.

How much iron do you need?
Iron plays an integral role in the formation of hemoglobin in blood and myoglobin in muscles, both of which carry oxygen to the cells. That's why fatigue and tiredness is the first symptom most people notice when they may be low in iron.
The recommended intake for iron is:
Kids 1-3 years old: 7 mg/day
Kids 4-8 years old: 10 mg/day
Teenagers 9 - 13: 8 mg/day
Teenagers 14 - 18: 11 mg/day for boys & 15 mg/day for girls
Males 19+: 8 mg/day
Females 19-50: 18 mg/day
Females 51+: 8 mg/day
Pregnant females: 27 mg/day

The magic of iron-food pairing
The absorption of non-heme iron can be improved when a source of heme iron is consumed in the same meal. In addition, the iron absorption-enhancing foods can also increase the absorption of non-heme iron. While some food items can enhance iron absorption, some can inhibit or interfere iron absorption. Avoid pairing these iron-inhibiting foods when you're eating iron-rich foods in the same meal.
Iron absorption enhancers:
Fruits: orange, orange juice, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapefruit etc
Vegetables: broccoli, brussels sprouts, tomato, tomato juice, potato, green and red peppers
Iron absorption inhibitors:
Red wine, coffee and tea
Vegetables: spinach, chard, beet greens, rhubarb and sweet potato
Whole grains and bran
Isolated soy ingredients, like products made with soy flour and isolated soy protein concentrate.
