U r protected for the whole month if you take the tablets regularly. If you miss 1 tablet during the cycle—Take the missed tablet as soon as you remember. Take the next tablet at the usual time. You may take 2 tablets in one day. Then continue your regular dosing schedule. If you miss 2 tablets in a row, Take 2 tablets on the day that you remember and 2 tablets the next day. Then continue taking 1 tablet a day. Also use another birth control method until you begin a new cycle.

Pain which comes frequently and for short time called spasmodic pain is more likely to be related to pregnancy rest you may not rush if not severe. Your history suggests some infection-enteritis so best is to get treatment from concerned Obstetrician. If one has not worked he/she would give another.

प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स - How To Pregnant Tips?

तुरंत और आसानी से गर्भवती होने के तरीके–प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स

एक महिला के लिए बच्चे को जन्म देना काफी प्रसन्नता की बात होती है, और वह इस दिन की काफी प्रतीक्षा करती है।गर्भावस्था की स्थिति अचानक नहीं आती, इसमें गणना का काफी बड़ा हाथ होता है।
गर्भवती होने के लिए आपका फर्टिलाइजेशन (fertilization) अच्छे से होना चाहिए। आपको अपने मासिक धर्म (periodic cycle) का आंकलन करके उसी हिसाब से चलना चाहिए।
शारीरिक सम्बन्ध के फलस्वरूप गर्भवती होने से पहले इस बारे में अच्छे से सोच लें कि आप असल में एक बच्चे को जन्म देना चाहती हैं या नहीं।
इनफर्टिलिटी (infertility) की समस्या से ग्रस्त लोगों को डॉक्टर से सलाह करनी चाहिए तथा गर्भवती होने के अन्य तरीके प्रयोग में लाने चाहिए।
आजकल जीवनशैली में परिवर्तन की वजह से पुरुष और महिलाओं की फर्टिलिटी का स्तर काफी कम हो गया है।

*नीचे गर्भवती होने के कुछ तरीकों के बारे में बताया गया है।*
ज्यादातर जोड़े जो असुरक्षित यौन संबंध प्रस्थापित करते हो उसमे महिला को प्रेगनेंट करने का तरीका, प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने की (to become pregnant) ज्यादा संभावना होती है|
जिस जोड़े को प्रजनन की समस्या न हो वे प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स,कुछ आसान तरीकों का पालन करके उसमे महिला गर्भवती हो सकती है|

*प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए कुछ सुझाव (instructions for getting pregnant)*
प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए, जोड़े को अपने आप को तनाव से मुक्त रखने की जरुरत है|
तनावग्रस्त रहने से गर्भ रहने में मुश्किलें आ सकती हैं|
*गर्भावस्था के दौरान खून निकलना और उनके कारण*
महिलाओं के लिए अण्डोत्सर्ग का समय जाननेवाले किट का उपयोग करके सही समय का पता लगाना चाहिए।
अण्डोत्सर्ग से पूर्व 24-36 घंटे मूत्र में एलएच की वृद्धि होती है और यह समय प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती बनने(to get pregnancy) के लिए लाभकारी होता है|
प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए,
पुरुषों को ज्यादा व्यायाम नहीं करना चाहिए,
गर्म पानी से टब बाथ नहीं लेना चाहिए और ज्यादा तंग कच्छे नहीं पेहेनने चाहिए|

प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने के बेहतरीन उपाय और प्राकृतिक तरीके (natural ways to get pregnant fast)
अगर लंबे समय बाद भी स्त्री को गर्भ न रहता हो तब वैद्यकीय सलाह की जरुरत पड़ती है|
इसमें कुछ दवाइयां लेनी पड़ती हैं जो आपके प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने के अवसरों को बढ़ावा देती हैं|

*नीचे दिए गए कुछ प्राकृतिक तरीके महेंगे नहीं होते हैं|*
नियमित रूप से इनका पालन करने पर प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती रहने की संभावना बढती है|
यौन संबंध के समय जोड़े कि शारीरिक अवस्था ऐसी हो जिससे पुरुष महिला के साथ गहरा संबंध प्रस्थापित कर सके|
संबंध के बाद महिला को अपनी पीठ पर 15मिनट तक लेटा हुआ रहना आवश्यक है जिससे पुरुष के शुक्राणु स्त्री के बीज तक पहुँच सके|
गर्भनिरोधक गोलियों का सेवन रोक देना चाहिए|
मासिक धर्म का योग्य समय देखकर शरीर संबंध का समय तय किया जा सकता है|
पुरुष और स्त्री को स्वस्थ जीवनशैली का पालन करना जरुरी है|
ड्रग्स और शराब लेना बंद करें|
स्त्री के शरीर में शुक्राणु थोड़े दिनों तक रहते हैं| इसलिए अक्सर संबंध रखना गर्भ रहने में मदद करता है|

*प्रेगनेंट होने के टिप्स.*
गर्भवती होने के तरीके (easiest way to get fast conceive tips in hindi)
कुछ स्त्रियों में आसानी से गर्भ रहता है पर कुछ स्त्रियों के लिए यह बड़ा मुश्किल होता है|
कुछ आसान तरीकों का पालन करके प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स से ऐसी स्त्रियाँ प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती हो सकती हैं|

गर्भवती महिलाओं को नींद लाने में सहायता करने के लिए कुछ तरीके
स्त्रियों के शरीर में बीज 12-24घंटे तक फलन के लिए उपलब्ध होते हैं जबकि शुक्राणु ३ से ५ दिनों तक जिंदा रह सकते हैं|
इसलिए 28 दिनों के बाद आनेवाले मासिक धर्म में पहले 11से 21दिन तक संबंध रखने से उपयोग हो सकता है|
अक्सर संबंध रखना गर्भ रहने का आसान तरीका है|
शरीर की ऐसी स्थिति जहाँ शुक्राणु आसानी से बीज तक पहुँच सके ऐसी स्थिति होना मदद करता है|
जोड़े को तनाव मुक्त होना बहुत जरुरी होता है|
अगर ऊपर दिए गए किसी भी सुझाव से प्रेग्नेंट नहीं होती तो डॉक्टर की सलाह लें|

*प्रेग्नेंट होने के लिए क्या करें*
*वज़न घटाना (losing weight)*
कई बार वज़न ज़्यादा होने की वजह से महिलाओं को गर्भधारण करने में दिक्कतें पेश आती हैं।
उन्हें बच्चे को जन्म देने में काफी परेशानी होती है, क्योंकि इस प्रक्रिया में उनके शरीर में जमा वसा एक बाधा बन जाती है।
अतः एक बच्चे को जन्म देने के लिए पुरुष और महिला दोनों का ही स्वस्थ रहना काफी ज़रूरी है।
अत्याधिक वज़न वाली महिलाओं को इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा होती है।
अतः गर्भधारण का प्रयास करने से पहले महिलाओं को 2 से 3 महीने तक व्यायाम करके अपना वज़न कम करने का प्रयास करना चाहिए।

*केमिकल्स से दूर रहें (be away from chemicals)*
कारखानों तथा प्रयोगशालाओं में काम करने वाली महिलाएं रोज़ाना कठोर केमिकल्स के संपर्क में आती हैं।
छपाई के कारखानों तथा फसलों के लिए कीटनाशक बनाने वाले उद्योगों में काम करने वालों को भी इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या घेर सकती है।
एक बार अगर आपने गर्भधारण का फैसला ले लिया है तो कृपया केमिकल्स से दूर रहें।
अगर संभव हो तो अपना पेशi बदल लें या फिर गर्भावस्था के समय से पहले और बाद के लिए छुट्टी ले लें।
इससे आपके फर्टिलिटी तथा बच्चा दोनों ही सुरक्षित रहेंगे।

*तनाव दूर करें (avoiding stress)*
आजकल ज़्यादातर लोग तनाव के शिकार हैं, और शायद यही वजह गर्भावस्था के स्तर के घटने की भी है।
आजकल सभी लोगों को सारा दिन काम का बोझ तथा तनाव झेलना पड़ता है।
दिमाग में पड़ने वाले प्रभाव के अलावा यह शरीर में उत्पादित होने वाले हॉर्मोन्स (hormones) में भी समस्या उत्पन्न करता है।
अतः तनाव से दूर रहें तथा गर्भधारण का फैसला लेने से पहले हमेशा खुश रहने का प्रयास करें।
आपको अपने बच्चे के बारे में सोचते हुए अपना तनाव कम करना चाहिए।
चिंता की वजह को दूर करने की कोशिश करें।

*सेक्स की प्रक्रिया को दोहराएं (having repeated sex)*
सम्भोग दुनिया में बच्चे को लाने का एक अनोखा और आनंददायक तरीका है।
प्रेगनेंट करने का तरीका में कुछ लोग काम के दबाव तथा अन्य जुड़े कारणों से पर्याप्त मात्रा में सेक्स की क्रिया को अंजाम नहीं दे पाते।
पर अगर आप बच्चा चाहती हैं और एक बार सेक्स से कोई फायदा ना हो तो उर्वर दिनों (fertilizing days) को ध्यान में रखते हुए सेक्स की क्रिया को बार बार दोहराना काफी महत्वपूर्ण साबित होगा। 
महिलाओं का मासिक धर्म (menstrual cycle) 28 से 30 दिनों का होता है, जिसमें से 14 वें दिन वे सबसे ज़्यादा उर्वर अवस्था में रहती हैं। 
आपको इस बात की भी जानकारी होनी चाहिए कि अंडाणु (ovum) का जीवन 24 से 36 घंटों तक का ही रहता है। 
अतः आपको सम्भोग की क्रिया के लिए इस दिन के आसपास के समय का ही चुनाव करना चाहिए। 
इस समय सेक्स में लिप्त होने से गर्भधारण की संभावनाएं काफी बढ़ जाती हैं। 
आपको सम्भोग के बाद दवाई की दुकानों पर उपलब्ध यूरिन टेस्ट किट (urine test kit) से गर्भावस्था की जांच करनी चाहिए।

*गर्भवती होने के उपाय–*
संतुलित खानपान (balanced diet)
जब आपको गर्भधारण की इच्छा हो, उस समय आपको अपने खानपान की तरफ भी काफी ध्यान देना चाहिए।
संतुलित आहार करें जिसमें पर्याप्त मात्रा में प्रोटीन, मिनरल और अन्य पोषक पदार्थ हों (protein, minerals and other nutrients), जिससे कि गर्भधारण की प्रक्रिया में तेज़ी आ जाए। 
हमेशा पोषक भोजन करने की कोशिश करें, जिससे बिना किसी समस्या के आसानी से बच्चे को जन्म दिया जा सके।
आप अपने खानपान में अन्य पूरक आहार (supplements) तथा माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स (micronutrients) भी शामिल कर सकती है|

I am having itching sensation inside my vagina during night, and I can feel few rashes, when I put my fingers inside. I maintain hygiene, and keep my vagina absolutely clean by washing overtime with water. Pls suggest medicines to cure the vaginal itching and rashes.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Hello- The probable reason behind your vaginal itching and rash is your acidic vaginal secretion. As you live in Kolkata, certain food items like rice, fish, curd, spicy diet, salty diet, excessive use of pain killers etc decreases the Ph of body fluids or make them acidic and causes these symptoms as mentioned by you. Avoid these food items, coconut milk, milk, ghee, sweets etc are going to benefit you by decreasing the acidity of the fluids. You can also apply pure coconut oil locally in the affected areas. Ayurvedic medications like Chandraprabhavati and Chandanasava can also reduce your symptoms quickly with above changes. Do share your feedback on lybrate.

Pregnancy - Understanding Fertility After Early Miscarriage!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Infertility (IVF Specialist)
Gynaecologist, Aurangabad
Pregnancy - Understanding Fertility After Early Miscarriage!

Miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion that occurs around the first to second trimester of pregnancy; wherein the foetus is automatically expelled from the uterus due to its inability to survive because of environmental influences or chromosomal abnormalities.

Unless the miscarriage occurs due to a severe health issue, the fertility of the woman may not necessarily be compromised. Studies show that one miscarriage doesn’t predict the possibility of a future one. Once the bleeding and pain subside, it is the emotional trauma that must be addressed to begin with which poses a greater threat than the physical one.

The fertility of the woman remains unaltered and the body can be ready after the menstrual cycle returns to normal. However, it still requires some time for the woman to be physically and emotionally prepared to go through another pregnancy. The medical history and reasons behind miscarriage must be evaluated before the couple decides to try again.

Complications after miscarriage only occur if the woman is above 35 years of age or has a rather unhealthy lifestyle. The concept of fertility varies from person to person and it isn’t possible to pass a common judgement about fertility in this scenario.

The gynaecologist mostly suggests couple therapy after the trauma of the miscarriage. The psychological loss is given more importance before considering another attempt by most doctors. The fertility loss only occurs with age and unhealthy lifestyle and it is widely accepted and proven that a miscarriage has little or nothing to do with it.

Ways to Increase Fertility

If a couple is certain they are ready to conceive again, there are a few things a woman can do to help her chances of becoming pregnant-

  1. The first thing to do is to stop any unhealthy habits. These include smoking, drug use, or alcohol abuse. It’s reported that high consumption levels of caffeine are detrimental to conception so that should also be limited.
  2. Eliminating stress can also help. Eliminating stress is one of the most important factors in having a successful pregnancy. So, it makes sense that getting over-stressed can reduce fertility levels.
  3. Eat healthy. If depression was experienced due to the miscarriage, it’s possible that the woman’s diet has not been the healthiest. It’s common for women who have experienced a miscarriage to have a loss of appetite and not eat enough or to eat out of sorrow, eating too much. More attention should be paid to the diet and more healthy foods added to meals.

Talk to a Doctor

If a couple is having issues with fertility after early miscarriage, they should talk to a doctor. There are many options available. More than likely, the first thing the doctor will do is to test fertility levels of both the man and the woman. If you don't want to visit a doctor for this, there is a new at-home kit available called Fertell. This test, retailing for approximately $100, measures fertility levels for both a man and a woman.

If it is found that there is a loss of fertility after early miscarriage, fertility drugs or therapies may be prescribed for a period of time.

The doctor may report that there are no issues with fertility. At this point, it would be a good idea to use an ovulation predictor in order to time effective intercourse. This isn't the most romantic idea, but it may well be one of the most logical ways for a couple to conceive.

Bottom Line

Fertility is not normally decreased after miscarriage. A woman's fertility levels return to normal as soon as her menstrual cycle returns. Fertility may be decreased due to emotional issues as a result of the miscarriage. However, if a couple is ready, both physically and emotionally, there should be no physiological hindrances to conception.

The decision to try again is not an easy one. However, fertility won't typically be an issue.

There is no risk of pregnancy since you had emergency contraceptive pill. However do a pregnancy test 10 days after the missed period to exclude pregnancy. Period could be delayed because of the effect of pill.
