During spinal anesthesia, nerve damage has taken place 3 years ago. you are recovering , though slowly. keep the faith and hope alive. nerve injuries take long time to heal and may be soon your doctor will suggest physiotherapy treatment. good luck.

Me and my wife are trying to conceive for 2 years. She started having irregular periods 6 months after marriage. Doctor did laparoscopy, tubal test and ovarian drilling for pcos. She is having induced periods after that. After inducing periods, doctor directly started giving FSH injections 75 mg and follicular study. He concluded that she is not ovulating and decided to double the dosage next cycle. But she ovulated late that same cycle and got pregnant. But it ended up in a miscarriage after 6 weeks (spontaneous miscarriage). After one month doctor again started giving FSH injections and she started having heavy mid cycle bleeding. She consulted another doctor and she gave her metformin 500 for 30 days and siphene 50 mg without follicular study. That month she got her periods naturally. Right now she is only taking metformin. Will this help her to ovulate naturally. She got periods last months naturally. Does that mean that she ovulated last month? Her tubal test is clear and hormonal profile is normal and no thyroid issues. Her weight is 72 and height is 5 feet 4 inches.

Your wife would need to document ovulation by ultrasound or blood test to be sure of ovulation and guide you about the fertile period to time intercourse. This would help to decide on further management also. Only metformin may not induce ovulation for sure but yes it causes weight reduction which help in spontaneous ovulation.

6 Do's and Don'ts of Working During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the most wonderful, but exhausting times of a woman's life. There are quite a few precautions you need to take and quite a few factors you need to consider before doing anything. Take for example, working during pregnancy. Working while you're pregnant can be challenging, but if you keep these do's and don'ts in mind, it can become an easy task.

Do: Get Adequate Rest
The first few weeks of pregnancy can take a toll on your body. If your sleep schedule is off, you need to fix it and sleep for the usual 8-9 hours a day. If you undertake a lot of physically strenuous work or even if have a desk job, you need to take a break as it can get very taxing for you. To avoid work-related exhaustion and stress, take frequent breaks to give your body the rest it requires. Speak to a doctor or trainer for simple stretches that will help you alleviate stress on your joints and keep you muscles relaxed.

Do: Be Smart About Your Work
Jobs that require heavy lifting must be avoided at all costs as they can give rise to severe complications during pregnancy. When you're pregnant, you should also avoid work that regularly exposes you to radiation, harmful chemicals, lead and X-rays. Ask your supervisor to shift the sort of work you are doing as often it's illegal to continue working in conditions that actively harm your pregnancy.

Do: Take Multivitamins and Necessary Supplements
Work often doesn't leave you with enough time to take good care of yourself. You may end up skipping meals due to a hectic work schedule, which can lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. To keep the worst effects of this kind of a lifestyle at bay, make sure to take your multivitamins and supplements religiously and regularly.

Do: Be Super Hygienic
It is extremely important to maintain high standards of personal hygiene and sanitation during your pregnancy. This becomes even more important if you work in an environment that exposes you to infectious diseases, raw meats and children. Keep a hand sanitizer with you at all times, and make sure you don't ingest anything that has come into contact with contagions.

Don't: Go for Long Stretches Without Eating
Keeping your stomach empty during pregnancy can have a lot of unwanted effects ranging from bloating, acidity and gas to nausea and vomiting. Have a light breakfast and keep snacking on small portions of nutritious food throughout the day. Also, ensure that you maintain optimum fluid intake. The regular 8-10 glasses of water a day is a must.

Don't: Be stressed
Stress during pregnancy can have damaging effects on you and your baby's health, severely affecting the physical and mental development of your unborn child. Avoid taking on extra work for the duration of your pregnancy. Lighten your workload as much as you can and make sure to take meditation and baby-safe yoga classes to keep your stress in check.

As long as you take these simple precautions, you can continue to work throughout your pregnancy. So, remember to follow these guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy experience for both you and your baby.

Hello, the safe period is from day 3-day 11 in a 28-30 days cycle. Secondly on loosing virginity vaginal bleeding occurs due to rupture of hymen which stops naturally in 2-3 days. Thirdly in case of contraceptive failure or unprotected sex, in order to avoid pregnancy, emergency contraceptive is to be used within 72 hrs, offering 99% protection against pregnancy.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Your question contains two parts. 1- you want to have a baby, 2- early discharge of your wife. Ans. 1- having sex during middle 15 days of menstrual cycle is optimal period to get pregnant.(normal cycle- 25-35 days). The day of starting period should be counted as day-1.2- a proper foreplay in a romantic atmosphere is key to success for healthy sex. It is not at all necessary to get discharge at same time for both partners. So don't worry.

Hello- irregular periods and headache accompanied with weakness shows that you might be anaemic/low haemoglobin in blood. Use herbal supplements for anemia like Dadimadi ghrita, Abhra loha etc. Your problem will be solved.

Vaginismus

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist
Ask Free Question
When the vagina hurts and contracts involuntarily during the insertion of a foreign object, this is known as vaginismus. The muscles in the vagina tighten around the foreign object and causes pain, discomfort and a burning sensation. It is basically an involuntary spasm occurring in the vaginal muscles, which makes a penetration in the vagina almost impossible. Vaginismus works in a reflex mechanism, just like the eye shuts automatically when an object comes towards it.

Symptoms
Painful sex is the most basic symptom of vaginismus. Penetration initiates the pain, which usually goes away after withdrawal. Usually, you might think that your vagina is small because of which you are hurting on penetration. This causes the situation to go undetected. Many times, you might even feel discomfort during an internal pelvic examination or while using a tampon.

Causes
The actual cause of vaginismus is not known. Usually anxiety and the fear of having sex are stated as the causes of vaginismus. Sometimes medical causes like vaginal infections might also result in vaginismus.

Types
Vaginismus is of four different types, based on the time span of it occurring and on the object of penetration:
1. Primary vaginismus: Suffering from vaginismus throughout life it called primary vaginismus.
2. Secondary vaginismus: If you start suffering from it after having normal sex for quite some time then it is secondary vaginismus.
3. Global vaginismus: When the pain starts with any foreign object penetrating the vagina, like a tampon or with internal pelvic examination instruments.
4. Situational vaginismus: When the pain occurs with any one sex partner but not with the others.

Treatment
Vaginismus can be treated with exercise. If you do 20 kegels at a time every day, then vaginismus can be cured gradually.

Hello, no, it is not accurate simply because urine pregnancy test is sensitive only after 8 days post missed periods. However as you have taken ipill, so the withdrawal bleed should ideally start in next 7-10 days, so be patient. If in hurry, then please get a serum beta hcg test done to get conclusive results as on date.

Hello. Congratulations! First, get yourself registered with some good hospital for regular check-ups and monitoring. Include daily intake of healthy, nutritious, balanced diet which includes different pulses, legumes, green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, cereals, nuts. Avoid eating high caloried, unhealthy junk food like fried food, oily food, rich & spicy food, beverages, cold drinks, canned food. Increase intake of milk & milk products - take 2 glasses of milk everyday. Go for a regular health walk twice - morning and night daily. Take at least 8hrs. of sleep at night and 2hrs. of sleep during daytime. Avoid taking unnecessary stress and tension. Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water to keep well hydrated. Avoid taking food from outside to avoid any infection. Avoid taking hard drinks and smoking which can affect the health of a baby! You can consult a physiotherapist who can guide you and teach you exercises pre and post pregnancy which will help you in easy delivery and managing weight after delivery. Think positive!! Optimistic mind leads to a healthy pregnancy and healthy delivery!! All the best!
