To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test and semen should be adequate quality which is checked by semen analysis. These both tests are done before the treatment of any infertile couple. Once the above tests are normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg. You need to consult a good gynecologist who would start proper treatment for u.

If you are married or had unprotected sex, get an urine test for pregnancy. If it is negative, consult a gynaecologist who may give you some medicine to have withdrawl bleeding. However if it is a regular phenomenon you need to have other tests.

I take home made food. My recent blood test report shows no sugar no thyrod.

If you had periods after taking contraceptive pills and have no history of intercourse after that, then there are least chances of pregnancy. Sometimes, after taking contaceptives, period dates gets disturbed. So wait for periods, at least 1 week more and if still period doen't come, get a urine pregnancy test done.

Hello doctor, am a 24 years old breast feeding mother. My daughter is 6months old. I find my breastmilk has reduced from comparing to earlier. Is there any food that increase breast milk?

The key to more milk is more suckling. Try putting your baby to breast more frequently. You may also use a breastpump after every feed to provide continuous stimulation to breasts.

My wife pregnant and hemoglobin 8.5 so how it will increase without medicine.
Your wife needs oral iron supplements. If time left for delivery is less she may need parenteral injections as well. Just with diet rich in iron it's not possible to reach normal levels.

After taking emergency contraceptive pill within time, pregnancy is less likely. However it does not provide 100% contraception. So be watchful. If she misses her scheduled period this month, do a urine pregnancy test to rule out chances of pregnancy.

Gynaecomastia is hypertrophic male breast some times due to hormonal imbalance. You must check your hormonal status, testosterone levels etc. Usually it can be corrected surgically by plastic surgeons.

Most chances of conceiving are between the 8-16 day of periods, day 1 means the first day of periods. Wait till the date your periods were due and after that get a home pregnancy testing kit.

Are skinny jeans bad for your health?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Are skinny jeans bad for your health?
Skinny jeans can cause serious damage to nerves and muscles, doctors have warned. Just how bad for your health is the definitive hipster garment, asks Jon Kelly.
Someone warn Russell Brand. Send help to the duchess of Cambridge. Skinny jeans have long been the legwear of choice among fashionistas, but it appears there are health risks associated with dressing like kate moss or the bass player from the strokes.
A 35-year-old Australian woman developed a condition called compartment syndrome, caused by bleeding or swelling within muscles, which an article in the journal of neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry said was made worse by her skinny jeans.
It's not the first time tight legwear has been subject to health warnings. Other researchers have identified several cases where patients have developed pain or tingling in their thighs after wearing" tight new fashion low cut trousers. Men are warned that skinny jeans can lead to twisted testicles. They are typically urged to wear looser undergarments when they and their partner are trying to conceive, says general practitioner Dr. Sarah Jarvis, because high temperatures are thought to have a negative effect on sperm production.
People with urinary tract infections are advised to avoid skinny jeans. Tight trousers have also been blamed for exacerbating heartburn by putting pressure on the abdomen, which in turn pushes stomach acid upwards - although Jarvis says this tends to be more of an issue when waists are cut unfashionably high.
But it's important not to overstate the risks, Jarvis adds. Compartment syndrome is a fairly unusual phenomenon and in the Australian case there was a" perfect storm" of circumstances. The tightness of the woman's jeans apparently caused her muscles to swell inwards rather than outwards, and the fact she was squatting for extended periods also worsened the situation.
People should be aware there's a small risk, says Jarvis - if you go to the gym and forget your tracksuit bottoms, it's best not to exercise in tight-fitting
Denims. But this is common sense" i'm not going to give up my skinny jeans"
she says.

Hi lybrate-user, pain could be due ovarian cyst or pregnancy also. Chances of getting pregnant are low but still screening should be done.

She needs to get a urine pregnancy test first to exclude pregnancy. If negative she needs to do a few tests to exclude a condition called Polycystic ovaries and hormonal pills to induce a period.

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 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.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Working hard when tired is not good for your health. Doing mental or physical work while exhausted may harm your health, according to a study from University of Alabama at Birmingham and published in International Journal of Psychophysiology.

In the study, fatigued people had bigger spikes in blood pressure compared to well-rested people while doing a memorization test.

When fatigued people regard a task as worthwhile and achievable, they increase their effort to compensate for their diminished capability. As a result, the blood pressure of a tired person increases and remains elevated until the task is completed or the person gives up.

In this study, Wright and colleagues told 80 volunteers they could win a modest prize by memorizing 2 to 6 nonsense trigrams (meaningless, three?letter sequences) within two minutes. Compared to volunteers with low levels of fatigue, those with moderate fatigue had stronger blood pressure while doing the two?trigram memorization task.
