First go for ultrasound to confirm that bleeding is not continuing due to miscarriage you had on 17 jan. If something is still retained inside the uterus it has to be removed. Bleeding should stop completely. After you get regular cycles you can try for pregnancy again after some basic tests.

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.

This i, a 18 years student. I have a query about HIV (Aids). I had sex with 2 girls. Lets assume their name A and B. I had unprotected sex with A on 11th Feb and 26th Feb. And I had unprotected sex with B on 27th Feb and 1st March. B was a virgin, A wasn't a virgin. A had sex with other male recently, like 4-5 times between 11th and 26th. And before 11th too. B was a virgin. Now I am like, I committed a mistake by doing unprotected sex, and I might be exposed to HIV - Aids. So on 10th March, I opted for HIV test and attached is the report (HIV negative). According to report, I am alright. But still unsure. From future, I am surely gonna use Condoms and avoid multiple sex partners. But tell me, will the mistakes I committed have costed me or can it cost in future? However, report suggest I am fine. By the way, I have lost weight, from 64 kg to 57 kgs. And suffering from cold & cough from 20th march, now from last 5 days, fever also. Does it mean I am HIV positive or is it just because of weather. My other family members also got cough and fever but they have recovered but I am still suffering. By the way, I am a diabetic patient from the age of 13. I need help.

Today morning, during the sex my condom burst, we came to know after completion. As she don't wanna pregnancy, we are going to buy unwanted 72. Kindly suggest is there any other best and trusted solution. Also what precaution we should take before and after taking the pill.

Unwanted-72 or i-pill are emergency contraceptive pills. The chances of failure to avoid pregnancy in a unwanted-72 pill / i-pill are about 13%. To be effective, the pill has to be taken preferably within 12 hours of the unprotected intercourse. But it must be taken within 72 hours, although if the pill is consumed later than 12 hours the failure rate in avoiding pregnancy is more. It should not be used regularly. Some minor side effects of this medicine are headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting; sometimes changes in menstrual pattern are observed; these are temporary, unless one uses unwanted-72 quite often. If one has other existing disease of gut or liver or breast or heart, doctor? s consultation is necessary before taking this medicine. Lastly, if regular contraception is the aim, then other pills may be considered; the chances of failure of a regular contraceptive pill to avoid pregnancy are merely 0.001%. That of a copper-t is 1 to 2%. With condoms it is 3 to 6%. For these, consultation is advisable.

How Can Homeopathy Help in Gastric Problems

BHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
At some point in life, everyone suffers from gastric problems. Reasons could be as simple as your irregular diet or even other health issues. Homeopathic tips to help you ease the gastric problem are best for quick relief.

Before getting a remedy, it is vital to understand what is gastric problem.

Reasons for Gas
Passing gas is quite normal until you pass it for less than 25 times a day via burp or via flatulence (passing gas through rectum). If it's more than that, then you may have some issues. But why does gas occur? It may be due to food leading to indigestion as one takes in quite a lot of air while having food.

Common foods that trigger gas formation are milk and milk products, artificial sugar, onion, cabbage, potatoes and even eggs in some cases. Few people are allergic to certain foods, which may result in gastric problems.

Another cause of gastric problem is swallowing excess air such as chewing gum, smoking, drinking carbonated drinks, even eating or drinking rapidly, having candies and so on.
Medications and health problems also trigger excess gas formation as side effects.

Homeopathic Remedy

Homeopathic remedy is one of the best ways to treat gastric problems without any side effects. To name a few Carbo Veg, China, Colocynth, Lycopodium, Nux Vomica and Robinia help in treating this issue.

Carbo Veg is a natural remedy for digestive problems, treating gas in the abdomen. It is used to treat gas that is present in the upper abdomen. Burps may give relief.

China is best to treat if the whole abdomen is filled with gas, and you feel bloated. It is majorly used to treat diarrhoea if the person is tied by frequent loose stool with excessive weakness.

Colocynth is taken if there are cramps along with loose stool.

Lycopodium is the Homeopathic treatment for gas formation in the lower abdomen.

Nux Vomica is best for treating a frequent urge to pass stool, but the stool is quite insufficient and inadequate.

Robinia is excellent for the treatment of digestive problems when you have complaints of heartburn and burps causing burning sensation in the throat, and if you have acidic vomiting.

Prevention is better than cure. Although these homeopathic wonders will give you a quick relief, it is advisable to avoid such foods and eating habits that lead to gastric problems. Exercises will also help.

It is a humble advise, not to attempt to get an abortion done with medications prescribed over the counter. These may do more harm than good. Consult a gynecologist with your friend, get examined and investigated. Determine the exact duration of pregnancy and then decide the most effective and safe way of terminating it, if you both so desire.

Hi I had sex on 14th jan 16, my periods were due on 19th jan 16. I got periods on 18th jan 16 but the bleeding was heavy on 1st day and second day light and 3rd day only one spot. Usually my periods are heavy on first 2days. I want to if I can be still pregnant after bleeding. I used two pads on 1st day.

Hi, chances of you getting pregnancy is almost nil, as you had intercourse prior to menses and ovulation occurs in mid cycle. 14 days prior to next menses. So don't worry.

Hi dr. I gave birth to a girl child on 11 dec, however got my periods for 40 days. Later after a weeks time I got it again for a week and for another week I was free, then it startef again and is still continues. Can you please advise the reason for the same?

This may happen if there is subinvolution of the uterus (uterus has not returned to its pre-pregnancy size) due to any cause like retained products of conception or fibroid uterus. It may also happen because the hormones in your body have not fully settled yet. It is better to see your Gynaecologist for the evaluation of the causes in your case and treatment of the same. Meanwhile, make sure that you are taking your iron supplements without fail.

Someone must have advised you to use minoxidil, yes females can use 2% solution and males 5%. One of the side effects is hair fall! it takes months for new follicles to grow. I can suggest some home remedies to strengthen the follicles- 1) apply curd on scalp, leave it for 1 hour, wash with shampoo. 2) vinegar on scalp like curd does help 3) so does lemon juice for oily hair but why should a healthy woman shed more hair at 25? get thyroid tested, wash with ketoconazole shampoo easily available over the counter, in case there is some fungal infection on scalp. Was hair daily after using on scalp- coconut oil overnight. Do not wash hair once or twice a week, we are living in a hot country and we need to take care of scalp which is also a part of entire face. Eat a high protein and calcium rich diet.

Ideally other abnormalities of hb should be ruled out by one blood test, cause of low hb should be detected and low hb to be treated. The best way is to consult a doctor who can do all these.
