Hello It depends upon your periods date. During mid cycle, you can get ovulation and can become pregnant.

Your periods do get irregular when you are breastfeeding the baby but at the same time you can get pregnant also in between so you must use some contraception and for now check your urine for pregnancy and proceed accordingly.

Immediately pain and breast fullness is not related to pregnancy. Hormonal problem. You have to give her ipill and paracetamol for pain.

I'm a virgin and girlfriend is also a virgin we both are planning to have sex since we are dating from a long time. How should we go about? Should I use condoms or contraceptive pills? When is the best time to have unprotected sex after her periods or before?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26 days to 31 days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus18 days=8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD. Best for starters is to use condom correct use and check condom for tear after the use. If torn then ipill to be used immediately.

How safe is unprotected sex during certain periods of the month, like first few days after MC ends, a week after, two weeks, three weeks. Apart from condoms (which are certainly the safest option), what temporary measures can be taken to avoid pregnancy. Also, how accurate pregnancy test kits can be.

You can calculate it by 2 ways---------------- 1. You can have unprotected sex from 1-8 days of a woman's cycle and 20th to appearance of menses days, considering day-1 as 1st day of menses but for these safe period days your menstrual cycle have to be accurate ie. 28 (+-) 2 days.---------------------here day -9 to day-19 is ovulatory or unsafe period in which having unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy-------------------------- 2. If a female has a problem of late or early periods then you can calculate the ovulation day as expected date of menses minus 14 days. Now the ovulatory phase or unsafe periods days comes out to be ovulation day (+-) 5 days, and safe period for unprotected sex will come out to be all other days apart from this ovulatory phase.----lets take an example to explain this---if a woman has a menstrual cycle of 32 days (it must be mathematically accurate) and if her menses started on 1st december and her expected date of next menses comes out to be 2nd february. So her ovulation day comes out to be 18 december (2nd feb minus 14 days) and her ovulatory phase comes out to be 13-23 december (18 dec (+-) 5 days. So having unprotected sex for all other days except 13-23 december is the safe period and by same way a female can calculate her safe and unsafe periods if she is having early menses but make one thing for sure that accuracy of expected date should be 99-100% and she should not be facing any irregular periods problem--------------- 3. For having unprotected sex without fear of being pregnant a female must be sure about 2 things----- (a) her periods are 99-100% regular-------- (b) her calculations regarding ovulatory phase are 100% accurate and for that she should be 100% accurate in calculating her expected date of periods---- (c) take no chance of even 1 day just to please her boy as at the end she is the only one who is going to suffer------------------------

Thyroid problem can affect both mother and child badly. But if thyroid is controlled, there is nothing much to worry. So, ensure that your thyroid is normal before conception.

First express milk and check how much ml your getting. Then if your getting 30 ml or more then it wll be sufficient initially .If your getting below 20 ml then give your feed then mix lactogen 1 scoop in 30 ml water n give. Before starting the feed just give me your baby details 1.Weight of the baby at birth and present weight 2.Is your baby delivered after completing 37 weeks or 9 months 3.How many days old is your baby 4.Mode of delivery.

My period r irregular from Nov 2016 till now. What's d reason n what's d treatment.

My period r irregular from Nov 2016 till now. What's d reason n what's d treatment.
Hello, Irregular period is usually defined as any type of bleeding that's abnormal when compared to your last few menstrual cycles. It can include everything from a late period to early bleeding, and scant bleeding to extremely heaving bleeding. For many women, this can even mean an absent period (amenorrhea) or two periods in one month (metrorrhagia). It's actually a way of your body telling you something is not right and probably your hormones (especially estrogen and progesterone) are imbalanced. Although, in most cases, they are not dangerous, but it is important to figure out what is causing the irregularity (which may require a trip to the doctor). RESAONS/ CAUSES: Some common reasons for irregular periods: STRESS: Stress is the most common cause of irregular periods. Cortisol, the stress hormone, has a direct impact on how much estrogen and progesterone, two sex hormones, gets produced by the body. POOR DIET: Unhealthy eating and being overweight or underweight can cause irregular periods. In order for a woman to maintain a regular cycle, her body fat percentage needs to be at least 17-22 percent. EXCESSIVE EXERCISE: Excessive exercising (or even lack of it) and drastic weight changes can decrease the body fat, being underweight can offset your hormone levels, thus contributing to irregular periods. BIRTH CONTROL PILLS: When some women stop taking the pill, their periods may take one to three months to return to normal. And this can also reveal an underlying hormonal problem that was masked by taking the birth control pills. PCOS: Polycystic ovary syndrome causes cysts to form on the ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation. In fact, PCOS is far more complicated than a missed period. Talk to your doctor about this condition. THYROID: Thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, can cause widespread symptoms like changes in estrogen and cortisol hormones and missed periods. OTHER REASONS: Some other reasons include perimenopause, menopause, pregnancy, certain medications you might be taking due to other health issues, and breastfeeding. Some home remedies you can try to treat irregular period problem: REDUCE STRESS: Breathe away stress by doing yoga and breathing exercises and meditation in the morning. Also, do kapalbhati and anulom-vilom pranayama for 15 mins each. CHASTE BERRY: The best known hormone balancing herb for women, Chaste berry helps to regulate the female gynecological system. It works by normalizing the secretions of the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which then appropriately signal to balance the endocrine system. Note – This herb is not recommended if you are taking any fertility drug. It should not be consumed during pregnancy. SHATAVARI: Shatavari is also known to restore the balance of hormones in women. Mix it with equal amount of Ashwagandha and take 1 teaspoon with warm milk at night daily. OTHER HERBS: Some other herbs you can try to regain healthy menstruation: Holy basil (Tulsi), Black cohosh, licorice (Mulethi) root, turmeric, and Evening primerose oil. (If you are on medications, always consult your doctor first). DIETARY CHANGES: Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice. Add ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, green (unripe) papaya, sesame seeds (with Jaggery), Apple Cider Vinegar and wheat grass to your diet. Also eat other seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most women return to healthy menstruation cycle following these remedies. However, if you don’t benefit from the above, you should see your gynaecologist immediately. Hope this helps.

I had sex 5 to six times at interval with a married woman. I am unmarried. She is not suffering from hiv aids. Can I be infected from AIDS after having sex with her?

If you have a doubt about hiv then get it tested after 3 months of first contact. If negative and still if you r not satisfied, you can repeat it after 6 months again to be doubly sure.

Irregular periods may create leg pain. Address such issue. Irregular periods may be due to overweight, hormonal imbalance, stress, lack of physical activity, having too much of fat contents. Check for above issues and get proper advice or treatments. For vaginal infection have lemon or mosambi juices regularly, it's for you also. Follow hygienic sexual life and hygenic inner wears. Walk atleast 30 minutes per day for you both. * your weight is also seem to be more it may also create issues. Thank you bro. Wish you a health baby soon.

I am 51 years old, at menopausal stage. Sometimes feel hungry even after eating full meal and sometimes don't feel hungry at all because of which my weight gets added easily. I am 80 kgs though I walk everyday for minimum 1 hour a day on week days and 2 hours a day on weekends. I doubt that the weight gain causes knee pain. In addition to that I get knee swelling after every exhaustive day or strenuous work. Please advise.

better watch out. menopausal weight gain is physiological @ half kg per year or may be more and it is hormonal and non reversible. you are right ,walking more does cause knee pain as weight is carried by lower limbs. do exercises which involve entire body. get a stable cycle with rowing and exercise at home-cycling is less strenous than walking. eat healthy ,may be one meal a day. rest of the day only seasonal vegetables and fruits in plenty. lemon juice/apple cider vinegar do burn fat. yoga can help tone up muscles and help reduce weight too.
