Within 4 hours after unprotected sex I have taken 1st ipill. 2nd ipill I have taken after protected sex just to be sure I don't get pregnant and 3rd I have taken 20 days back. Please advice me is there any chances of getting pregnant as I want to avoid pregnancy?
Hi, My cousin, 23 year old is on her period right now. Her concern is that her flow is lighter than the usual. She uses she cup which generally gets full in 9-10 hrs on the 2nd day. But this time it was half full. 1st day of period, the flow was usual. She is worried if she might be pregnant as she had intercourse, with protection (condom) which did not break, but thinking randomly about all possibilities, something might have gone wrong there. She is having usual period cramps and back pain as well. Other than this there are no symptoms at all. She is a bit stressed due to family problems. Please help with your insights on the same at your earliest.
It’s time again to witness the beautiful sight of total lunar eclipse & blood moon tonight when the moon will move into the umbra of the Earth i.e. its darkest shadow. The penumbral eclipse will begin at 11:54 pm followed by partial eclipse and then total eclipse will begin at 1:00 am i.e. on 28 July. The eclipse is likely to last for 6 hours and 14 minutes and is the longest eclipse of the century.
Earlier this year, the world witnessed the super blue blood moon on 31st January 2018, when the supermoon coincided with the moon’s closest orbit point to earth. However, this blood moon is a rare event, as this is a first such eclipse in 36 years.
Why is it known as the blood moon?
At the time of a lunar eclipse, Earth comes in-between the sun and moon, which causes the moon to disappear into the darkness of Earth. At that point, the moon appears to be red in color, due to sun’s light being deflected by the Earth, which makes the moon to appear red in color.
Common myths & beliefs associated with the lunar eclipse!
According to Indian traditions and various other societies, a number of myths are in circulation regarding lunar eclipse, some of these myths are listed below.
One should not eat anything during the time of Grahan
During the time of the eclipse the magnitude of the light radiations present on the earth changes, which causes certain out of ordinary physiological changes. This can lead to the uncontrollable growth of bacteria in the food, thus deteriorating its quality. Also, this is a time when the body’s metabolism is slow thus people are advised to avoid heavy foods as it takes time to digest the food.
Why should a pregnant woman not go out during the lunar eclipse?
It is often said that eclipse increases the risk of miscarriage, however, there is no scientific logic attached to it. It is rather the opposite, as the menstruation cycle in females operates in sync with the movement of the moon and is known to regenerate & revitalize the feminine energy. The only logical reason that can be associated with it is that it gets dark during a lunar eclipse and in earlier days, due to lack of light women were advised not to walk around or work at such a time so as to avoid slipping in the dark.
