If the pain continues even after taking adequate rest please see your Obstetrician for a check up. Chewing gums is generally safe but ensure that your wife maintains good oral hygiene and does not suffer from dental caries.

Preganews and other similar tests are positive as soon as the periods are missed. However it is always better to do a blood test - serum Bhcg to be very sure. It can be done anytime after missing periods.

I want to know how can I avoid pregnancy without using condom. Is there any medicine which I or my wife can take before having sex to avoid pregnancy?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
You either need to use a male or female condom before intercourse or your wife needs to take contraceptive pills on a regular basis or 3 monthly Depo injections or get a coil fitted. There is no instant medicine that can be taken before sex to avoid pregnancy.

I had sex last month. After that I had my regular periods. Are there any chances of pregnancy? Please reply soon.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Unlikely if you are having regular periods with normal flow. However some women can have bleeding upto 3 months of pregnancy. This is known as implantation bleed. In order to be very sure it is always good to do a urine pregnancy test as well.

In 1 month pregnancy my doctor suggested Rantac twice a day. Can I use Pan D twice as it is more powerful.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Pan D is to be taken once a day. It is best to avoid both these medicines in the first 2 months of pregnancy. Therefore take them only if needed.

I had protected sex on 13 march and I got my periods on 19 march. Now periods are delayed. I did pelvis usg and reports said that you have bilateral polycystic ovarian changes. Doctor asked me to do blood test like glucose, s.tsh, s.prolactin. I had regestrone tablets twice a day for three days coz I wanted my periods to come. I did not had any sex after last periods. I did upt too on the 8th day of missed period and it is negative. How and when will I get my periods? Please say.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
I would advice you to do a serum B-Hcg which is a blood test to be very sure you are not pregnant. Then continue with regesterone tablets twice a day for 7 days. Wait for 7-10 days after stopping the tablet. Periods should usually come. If not see your Gynaecologist back to prescribe an alternative medicine. PCO is known to delay and cause irregular periods. So this will need long term treatment.

Hello Dr, im 5 months pregnant. I have 2 queries. 1. Im getting very bad cravings for potatoes so Can I have 1-2 potatoes daily. Will it harm my baby? 2. Can I eat muskmelon seeds?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Potatoes are rich sources of carbohydrates. As long as you do not have diabetes in pregnancy they can be safely taken Muskmelon seeds are extremely beneficial during pregnancy and provide the best of nutrients while catering to the taste buds. Moderate in calorie count and high in nutritional value, muskmelon is good for pregnant women. These are one of the to-be-eaten fruits for the growth and development of your baby.

Hi Doctor, I am 37 year old male and we are trying for second children, so we consulting maternity doctor in my nearest area. They gave some test, check and prescribed some tablets, now we are taking regularly. Last we went for normal check-up and doctor prescribed the Duphaston tablet for my wife.

Uphaston is a progesterone hormone. It is safe for women wanting to conceive. It regularises periods and is a pregnancy support hormone for the first few months. If you your period fails to come after stopping the medicine then please do a urine pregnancy test.

I had sex with my girl friend for 3 days. After 2 days of unprotected sex she took unwanted 72 pill. Again on 3rd day we had unprotected sex for which she again took unwanted 72. Are there any chances that she might get pregnant? Will there be any adverse effect of 2 pills taken in 3 days. Pls suggest measures that she should take. She is really worried.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Unwanted 72 if taken frequently in a month can make the periods to become irregular. As she has taken it within 72 hrs it is unlikely she will be pregnant. I would advise not to have any further unprotected sex i.e without condoms this month and also not to take any further i-pills. If she misses her periods by more than 2 weeks next month she needs to do a urine pregnancy test.

Posture in Pregnancy - Do's and Don'ts To Avoid Pain

Posture in Pregnancy - Do's and Don'ts To Avoid Pain

Motherhood is a life transforming phase that all women look forward to. With the conception of a baby, a number of physiological and psychological changes take place within the mother’s body. Soon there will be a number of restrictions in the kind of food a mother a can consume, the activities that a mother can perform, the way she sleeps or sits. These restrictions are put so as to allow the baby to grow and develop safely. The restrictions prevent injuries and accidents that can be quite fatal to both mother and child.

Sitting Postures You Must Avoid

  1. Do not sit straight on the edge of the chair. Provide a support to your back.

  2. Do not sit in a way that pressurises only one side of your hips. Evenly distribute your weight when sitting down. Be comfortable.

  3. Do not sit at the same place and in the same position for extended time periods.

  4. Do not twist from your waist when you are sitting on a rotating chair. Instead, slowly move the chair along with your entire body to turn around.

Standing Postures You Must Avoid

  1. Avoid standing with your pelvis tilted forward or backward. You must stand straight with your stomach held in and up as much as possible.

  2. You must not slouch while standing.

  3. Do not stand in the same position for an extended period of time.

  4. Do not put your weight on one foot. Shift weight occasionally if your feet are hurting, but make sure to evenly distribute the weight.

  5. Do not bend too much backwards or forwards.

  6. Do not keep your head tilted down or sideways when you are standing. Look up, look straight.

Sleeping Postures You Must Avoid

  1. Lying on your stomach

  2. Sleeping with pillows under your shoulders. Pillows should only support your head.

  3. Do not sleep all curled up. Relax your feet and hands to allow the blood circulation to continue smoothly.

  4. Do not jerk up from your lying position. Turn to the side, swing your legs down to the side of the bed slowly and sit up using the support of your hands.

Activities You Must Avoid

  1. Hard core gyming

  2. Weightlifting

  3. Intense cardio

  4. Intense aerobics that include a lot of jumping

  5. Squatting

  6. Lifting heavy weighted objects

  7. Travelling by public transport on a jerky road. 

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

My prolactin is 190 and TSH level is 6.6. I was under medication but when stopped taking cabergoline my prolactin level again increased. I got the tests done this week itself. Please suggest if there is any possibility of getting pregnant in my case.

yes certainly but your prolactin and thyroid hormone levels need to be normalised before you try to conceive.

Birth Control Pills - 10 Common Side Effects of Them!

Birth Control Pills - 10 Common Side Effects of Them!

A birth control pill is commonly referred to as an oral contraceptive pill. A form of hormonal contraception and is a highly effective method of birth control. Only 1% of women experience unintended pregnancy when on the pill.

Birth control pills are of two types i.e combination pills and mini pills. Combination pills contain synthetic forms of the two hormones called oestrogen and progesterone. The mini pill only contains the hormone progesterone and is called progestin.

However, the pill does have some side effects to it. These include the following:

  1. Intermenstrual spotting: Within the first three months of starting the pill, women experience vaginal bleeding between the two period cycles.
  2. NauseaAlthough the symptoms subside after some time, some women till experience nausea for a while after taking the pill. If one consumes the pill with food or before going to bed, this can help lower the likelihood of feeling nauseous.
  3. Breast tenderness: The breasts might feel tender and enlarged after taking the pill. However, anyone who finds a lump in the breast or feels continuous pain needs to seek medical help.
  4. Headaches: Migraines and headaches are a very common phenomenon of the birth control pill. Different types and doses of these pills may result in different headache symptoms.
  5. Gaining weight: Experiencing certain fluid retention in the hip or breast area is very common. It also affects the fat cells of the body because of the oestrogen present in the pills.
  6. Mood swings: Those with a history of stress or depression might start to feel the same again. If one has that kind of a history and starts to feel emotional changes, she should consult a doctor immediately.
  7. Missing periods: It is a common side effect that after using the pill, one's period might get skipped. This is influenced by several factors including stress, depression or thyroid dysfunctions.
  8. Decreased libido: The sex drive can be widely affected by the birth control pill. Although many other factors could result in a decreased libido, but if it remains after having the pill and is persistent, one should seek medical help or consult a specialist.
  9. Vaginal discharge: There could be an increase or a decrease in the vaginal lubrication. Some people might experience vaginal discharge since it is very common. Changes in vaginal discharge never turn out to be harmful.
  10. Changes in the vision: Fluid retention due to the birth control pill can result in the swelling of corneas. Because of this, even contact lenses do not fit comfortably. Contact lens wearers should consult an ophthalmologist if their vision or lens tolerance is disturbed.


Although there are certain side effects to taking birth control pills; however, one should not abstain from taking them in the fear that they might cause certain side effects. These pills are a precautionary measure along with other protection methods and should be taken in case someone wants to avoid pregnancy at the time being.

I have PCOS problem due to which I am not able to conceive, but I have very regular periods. My gums had put me on clomid for 6 cycles and on gonadotrophin injections for 4 cycles and did IUI for 2 cycles. For this month I am not taking any medications as suggested by my gums. But she has told me to take Chirocyst Tablet (contains Chromium Picolinate, D-Chiro-Inositol, Myo-Inositol, N-Acetylcysteine, and Vitamin D3 as active ingredients). How is it going to help me? I am due to my period but still no signs. Am I pregnant? As I heard many stories which says after coming off clomid we can conceive naturally. I really need a professional advice please.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Chirocyst tablet is used in women with PCOD. It is an ovarian sensitising agent and improves hormonal ratios and reduces insulin resistance. This helps in achieving ovulation and pregnancy. Yes it is true that a few women can conceive naturally after coming off clomid. This is related to a healthy lifestyle, weight control and correction of hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance in PCOD. If you have missed a period please do a serum b-HCG which a blood test to see if you have conceived!

I did 3rd time sex after loosing my virginity. But during intercourse I feel just only pain. Not any pleasure types feelings. Am afraid is this any sexual problem to me?

It is unlikely from a single episode. If you have additional problems like leucorrhoea or urinary symptoms then you will need treatment. If the problem however persists then please see a Gynaecologist for an examination first.
