My wife pregnant. Now she has finished 7 months. For good delivery what she want to do?

Do walk daily. Eat balanced diet. Do not eat too much ghee as it tends to increase baby weight and may lead to difficult delivery. Can do exercise meant for third trimester after one month. If you want to know the predelivery exercise or diet chart, inform me.

Do not worry. You both give urself more time. Meanwhile explore each other body. He will get know what is the size and how is the way to introsius. While doing for firstime he will slow and cautius. Before penteration use non irritant lubricant on penis and vagina before the intercourse.

Usually we say that if your age is less than 35 years, you first try for conception for one year. If it fails, consult doctor.

Go for a pregnancy test. Buy a pregnancy test kit available at local chemist. Chances of pregnancy are probably negative. But go for diagnosis.

Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) - To Help You Live Your Dream!

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO
IVF Specialist, Mumbai
Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) - To Help You Live Your Dream!

Of a million sperms released in one ejaculation, a single sperm manages to fertilize the egg, which grows into an embryo and then a baby. Due to various reasons, when this does not happen, it is termed as infertility and is currently on the rise.

With In-vitro fertilization (IVF), couples sometimes go through multiple sessions to ensure fertilizationICSI or intracytoplasmic sperm injection improved this chance of fertilization. It is where a single sperm is used to fertilize an egg in an artificially controlled environment and then injected into the uterus where it grows further.

The next step in this technique is IMSI, where the chances of successful pregnancy are further enhanced and also promises improved quality of the embryo. IMSI, as it stands for, has “morphologically selected” which means under a highly powerful microscope, the best sperms are selected and then used to fertilize the egg. Morphology stands for shape, and the shape of the sperm is a direct indicator of the sperm quality. This not just ensures good success rate but also ensures the sperm which is used produces a high-quality embryo.


  1. High success rate of fertility
  2. Reliable and efficient method of ART (assisted reproductive technology)
  3. More expensive than traditional IVF methods or ICSI
  4. Requires complex equipment, training, and set-up


  1. Useful in couples who have failed IVF previously
  2. Male infertility with unidentifiable cause
  3. Poor sperm quality

What to expect?

Both partners are prepared both physically and mentally prior to IMSI.

Before the procedure - men:

  1. A screening is first done to decide if the sperms can be used directly
  2. In case of hereditary diseases, a donor is preferred
  3. The first technical step involves sperm collection, either directly or through a donor
  4. Sperms are collected either through masturbation or through a small incision in the testicles
  5. Sperms used could be fresh or frozen; fresh ones may be stored for later use also

Before the procedure – women:

  1. The woman is put on some ovulation therapy to ensure the release of multiple eggs, so a good one is picked. These high doses of hormones ensure multiple eggs are released.
  2. Egg release is monitored through blood and urine tests
  3. They are collected within after 36 hours of release

During the IMSI procedure:

  1. A healthy egg is chosen and placed in a glass container containing hyaluronidase
  2. Sperms are placed in a medium which will slow their movement, which enables picking a good sperm for fertilization
  3. The dual advantage of this is that in addition to a high success rate of fertilization, the quality of the embryo is also assured 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

If the hymen is torn during the first intercourse then is there will be bleeding immediately or it can occur after two weeks? If any bleeding takes place after two weeks of having sex for the first time is there any chance of getting pregnancy? I'm confused I have my periods today before 14 days of my normal menstrual cycle. I have my last periods on 16th March and sex on 23rd March. He just rubbed it near my vagina and ejaculated some semen in the vagina. But I had no bleeding that time. I have washed off all the semen immediately. Today 2nd April I had my periods again. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Bleeding before due date is not exactly a sign of pregnancy. But this csn b a ovulation bleed if it is spottinng, as it is occuring roughly 14-15 days after your periods. Not to worry for being pregnant but jnprotected sex during this time csn makeyou pregnant, even in non insertion of penis, pre ejection seminal fluid contains some sperm.
