Argipreg sachets and high protein diet will help. It will not change placental position. Anterior placenta is ok, do not worry about that.

which tablet is to remove pregnancy? Please advise.
Hi, first please confirm that you are pregnant which can be done by urinary pregnancy test or serum b-hcg or pelvic ultrasound. If pregnancy is positive and is in the uterus and is less than 7 weeks, it can be aborted via medical tablets, if it is more than 7 weeks, surgical evacuation needs to be done.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all, it is necessary to have safe sex. Being responsible is the most important thing one should remember while having sex. It is rare for the condom to tear during sex. And the chances of pregnancy after wearing a condom is 3%. Bleeding during first act is normal for the girl and it happens due to rupture of the hymen. There is absolutely no need to panic and take any medicines for that bleed. Besides it will be better to avoid unwanted 72 after having unprotected sex as it does have side effects and should not be consumed at a younger age.

Water - When is the Right Time to Drink it?

If you are concerned about whether you should drink water right before and after a meal, you should know that there are different ideologies and beliefs. Many doctors suggest you should not drink water before a meal, in between a meal or after a meal. Some say that you should not have water before and after a meal, but you can have it in between. Hence, there is a lot of confusion over this subject. Here is an analysis, according to Ayurveda about why you should not drink water just before or after having a meal.

When to drink water?
According to many doctors and studies, it is recommended that you should not take water in between a meal. However, according to Ayurveda, you should drink water in between your mealtime, instead of having it before or after.

Drinking water before a meal
According to Ayurveda, water before taking a meal is capable of diluting and weakening of your digestive strength and capacity. This is because of the factor that water is a coolant and having it before a meal opposes your digestive strength. Thus, you should avoid having water right before you sit down for a meal.

Drinking water after a meal
Drinking water right after having a meal is considered to affect the quality of the food you intake, along with your digestive strength. A touch of its coolant effect is conveyed to whatever food you have consumed. This may make a person obese over a certain period of time. Therefore, you must not have water immediately after finishing a meal.

Drinking water in between a meal
This is the proper thing to do as per the principles of Ayurveda. Drinking water while you are having a meal helps in moistening the food you are eating. It helps in breaking down the food particles into small fragments. It also quenches your thirst in between a meal. Hence, drinking water in between a meal is considered ideal.

What to do in case you need to take a medicine before meals?
In case you have to take a prescribed medicine before a meal, you must drink water 20 minutes before the meal. Do not have a lot of water and only take the amount you need to gulp down your medicines.
There are counter views regarding this subject, which say that you should drink water right before, and after a meal, as it helps in digestion. Diabetic patients are adviced to take medicine of diabetes with the meal or just before having the meal.

All r correct. Under stand the female menstrual cycle. In a normal 28 days cycle, it is 14 th day (1st day is 1st day when the blood starts flowing) when the mature ready for fertilization egg is released. If it meets male sperm with in 24 hrs it is fertilized and pregnancy occurs other wise it disintegrates and thrown out as menstrual flow. So 14 th day is most fertile. Try and give feed back good luck.

Mostly it does not cause problem in pregnancy. If your question was in getting pregnant, then answer is yes, it becomes difficult in getting pregnant. If u r already pregnant, then it wont cause much of problem.

Benign, or noncancerous, tumors in the uterus can cause heavy bleeding or long periods. Benign growths in the uterine lining (endometrium) can cause a heavy or prolonged period. These growths are known as polyps, when the growth is made up of endometrial tissue, or fibroids, when the growth is made up of muscle tissue In most cases, the cause is not known. Known causes of abnormal uterine bleeding include polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, medication, infection and some forms of contraception. Symptoms of abnormal uterine bleeding Symptoms include: heavy (more than 80 ml) or prolonged (more than eight days) blood loss during the menstrual period. If you think you may be experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding, you may find it useful to keep a pictorial blood loss assessment chart bleeding or spotting between periods (intermenstrual bleeding) cramping and pain in the lower abdomen fatigue. Causes of abnormal uterine bleeding While in many cases, it is not possible to determine the exact cause, there are a number of reasons a woman may experience abnormal uterine bleeding. Some of the known causes of abnormal uterine bleeding include: spontaneous miscarriage in pregnancy ectopic pregnancy – lodgement of the fertilised egg in the slender fallopian tube instead of the uterine lining hormonal disorders – conditions such as hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroxine), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and hyperprolactinemia can disrupt the menstrual cycle ovulatory dysfunction – this is when the ovary does not release an egg each month. Most commonly, this occurs at either end of a woman’s reproductive years, either during puberty or at menopause endometriosis – the cells lining the uterus (endometrial cells) can travel to, attach and grow elsewhere in the body, most commonly within the peritoneal cavity, (including on the outside of the uterus or on the ovarian surface) infection – including chlamydia or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) medication – may include anticoagulants, which hinder the clotting ability of the blood, phenothiazides, which are antipsychotic tranquilisers, and tricyclic antidepressants, which affect serotonin uptake intrauterine device (IUD) – is a contraceptive device that acts as a foreign body inside the uterus and prompts heavier periods hormonal contraceptives – may include the combined oral contraceptive pill, injections of a long-acting synthetic progesterone, a rod containing slow-release progesterone (implanted in the upper arm), or intrauterine system devices (progesterone-releasing contraceptive devices inserted into the uterus). The progesterone-only treatments commonly cause spotting hormone replacement therapy – used as a treatment for menopausal symptoms fibroids – benign tumours that develop inside the uterus polyps – small, stalk-like projections that grow out of the uterus lining (endometrium). Polyps may be associated with fibroids bleeding disorders – may include leukaemia and Von Willebrand’s disease cancer – most uterine cancers develop in the lining of the uterus, though some cancers grow in the muscle layers of the uterus. They are most common after menopause. Diagnosis of abnormal uterine bleeding The diagnosis and identification of potential causes of abnormal uterine bleeding involves a number of tests including: general examination medical history menstrual history physical examination pap test blood tests vaginal ultrasound endometrial biopsy. Self-help suggestions for managing abnormal uterine bleeding Suggestions for managing abnormal uterine bleeding include: Get plenty of rest. Avoid aspirin, since this is an anticoagulant and may contribute to excessive bleeding. Eat a well-balanced diet. Take iron supplements to prevent anaemia. Homeopathic treatment is safe and effective , but for this detail history is needed . Right now you take , thalaspi bursa and apis mel, Mother tincture - 10 drops in 1/4th cup of water , 3 hourly , and hammamils 30 three times a day, its help to stop bleeding you get these medicine on any homeopathic medical shop.
