Hello, It is often common to experience irregular menses for 4-6 months after marriage due to hormonal changes after intercourse.

I am having first time sex with my partner how can we protect both from pregnancy please help me.

You need to use an effective contraception. Contracetive pills like yasmin/ novelon are easily available in the market and affordable. They are very effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy if used consistently. There are however a few contraindications like active liver disease; migraines, propensity to form blood clots etc; other option is to get a copper or mirena coil fitted. Third option is to use barrier methods like condoms and diaphragms. They have to be used at the time of sex. But the failure rates are slightly higher.

Polycystic Ovarian Disease – PCOD or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

What is Polycystic Ovarian Disease – PCOD or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that can affect a woman's:
• Menstrual cycle
• Ability to have children
• Appearance
• Hormones
• Blood vessels
• Heart
With PCOS, women typically have:
• High levels of androgens These are sometimes called male hormones, though females also make them.
• Many small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) in their ovaries
• Missed or irregular periods (monthly bleeding)
What causes PCOS?
The cause of PCOS is unknown. But most experts think that several factors, including genetics, could play a role. Women with PCOS are more likely to have a mother or sister with PCOS.
A main underlying problem with PCOS is a hormonal imbalance. In women with PCOS, the ovaries make more androgens than normal. Androgens are male hormones that females also make. High levels of these hormones affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation.
High androgen levels can lead to:
• Acne
• Excessive hair growth
• Weight gain
• Problems with ovulation
How many women have PCOS?
Between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 women of childbearing age has PCOS. It can occur in girls as young as 11 years old.
What are the symptoms of PCOD or PCOS?
The symptoms of PCOS can vary from woman to woman. Some of the symptoms of PCOS include:
• Infrequent, absent, and/or irregular menstrual periods
• Infertility (not able to get pregnant) because of not ovulating. In fact, PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility.
• Increased hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumbs, or toes
• Male-pattern baldness or thinning hair
• Cysts on the ovaries
• Acne, oily skin, or dandruff
• Weight gain or obesity, usually with extra weight around the waist
• Skin tags — excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area
• Pelvic pain
• Anxiety or depression
• Patches of skin on the neck, arms, breasts, or thighs that are thick and dark brown or black
• Sleep apnea — when breathing stops for short periods of time while asleep
How do I know if I have PCOS?
There is no single test to diagnose PCOS. Your doctor will take the following steps to find out if you have PCOS or if something else is causing your symptoms.
Medical history. Your doctor will ask about your menstrual periods, weight changes, and other symptoms.
Physical exam. Your doctor will want to measure your blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and waist size. He or she also will check the areas of increased hair growth. You should try to allow the natural hair to grow for a few days before the visit.
Pelvic exam. Your doctor might want to check to see if your ovaries are enlarged or swollen by the increased number of small cysts.
Blood tests. Your doctor may check the androgen hormone and glucose (sugar) levels in your blood.
Ultrasound (sonogram). Your doctor may perform a test that uses sound waves to take pictures of the pelvic area. It might be used to examine your ovaries for cysts and check the endometrium (lining of the womb). This lining may become thicker if your periods are not regular.
How is PCOS treated?
Because there is no cure for PCOS, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatment goals are based on your symptoms, whether or not you want to become pregnant, and lowering your chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. Many women will need a combination of treatments to meet these goals. Some treatments for PCOS include:
Lifestyle modification. Many women with PCOS are overweight or obese, which can cause health problems. You can help manage your PCOS by eating healthy and exercising to keep your weight at a healthy level. Healthy eating tips include:
• Limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars
• Adding more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet
This helps to lower blood glucose (sugar) levels, improve the body's use of insulin, and normalize hormone levels in your body. Even a 10 percent loss in body weight can restore a normal period and make your cycle more regular.
Birth control pills. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills can:
• Control menstrual cycles
• Reduce male hormone levels
• Help to clear acne
Fertility medications. Lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with PCOS. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with PCOS become pregnant. Even so, other reasons for infertility in both the woman and man should be ruled out before fertility medications are used.
Another option is in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF offers the best chance of becoming pregnant in any given cycle. It also gives doctors better control over the chance of multiple births. But, IVF is very costly.
Surgery. "Ovarian drilling" is a surgery that may increase the chance of ovulation. It’s sometimes used when a woman does not respond to fertility medicines. This surgery can lower male hormone levels and help with ovulation. But, these effects may only last a few months.
Medicine for increased hair growth or extra male hormones. Medicines called anti-androgens may reduce hair growth and clear acne. Anti-androgens are often combined with birth control pills. These medications should not be taken if you are trying to become pregnant.
Before taking any Medicines tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Do not breastfeed while taking this medicine.
Other options include:
• Cream to reduce facial hair
• Laser hair removal or electrolysis to remove hair
• Hormonal treatment to keep new hair from growing

Does PCOS change at menopause?
Yes and no. PCOS affects many systems in the body. So, many symptoms may persist even though ovarian function and hormone levels change as a woman nears menopause. For instance, excessive hair growth continues, and male-pattern baldness or thinning hair gets worse after menopause. Also, the risks of complications (health problems) from PCOS, such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes, increase as a woman gets older.
How does PCOS affect a woman while pregnant?
Women with PCOS appear to have higher rates of:
• Miscarriage
• Premature delivery
• Pregnancy-induced high blood pressure
• Gestational diabetes
Does PCOS put women at risk for other health problems?
Women with PCOS have greater chances of developing several serious health conditions, including life-threatening diseases. Recent studies found that:
• Women with PCOS can have diabetes or pre-diabetes at early age.
• Women with PCOS are at greater risk of having high blood pressure.
• Women with PCOS can develop sleep apnea. This is when breathing stops for short periods of time during sleep.
Women with PCOS may also develop anxiety and depression. It is important to talk to your doctor about treatment for these mental health conditions.
Irregular menstrual periods and the lack of ovulation cause women to produce the hormone estrogen, but not the hormone progesterone. Progesterone causes the endometrium (lining of the womb) to shed each month as a menstrual period. Without progesterone, the endometrium becomes thick, which can cause heavy or irregular bleeding. Over time, this can lead to endometrial hyperplasia, when the lining grows too much, and cancer.
I have PCOS. What can I do to prevent complications?
If you have PCOS, get your symptoms under control at an earlier age to help reduce your chances of having complications like diabetes and heart disease. Talk to your doctor about treating all your symptoms, rather than focusing on just one aspect of your PCOS, such as problems getting pregnant. Also, talk to your doctor about getting tested for diabetes regularly. Other steps you can take to lower your chances of health problems include:
• Eating right
• Exercising
• Not smoking
How can I cope with the emotional effects of PCOS?
Having PCOS can be difficult. You may feel:
• Embarrassed by your appearance
• Worried about being able to get pregnant
• Depressed
Getting treatment for PCOS can help with these concerns and help boost your self-esteem.
It is advised that you should consult gynecologist who can help you based on your symptoms and requirements to manage PCOD / PCOS.

Its ok to have sex daily when you are young but problem may come to your husband. Sperm is like energy for males but when over sex is done all sperm is out than body takes sperm from bones, very soon your husband will start looking old and stamina will be zero, its advisable that you follow a healthy sex routine, do sex twice or thrice a day. Ask your husband to eat a healthy diet and exercise a lot, you also exercise a lot and both of you should eat atleast 10 almonds a day. Keep the sperm count good, to have a healthy baby.

What Is Early Childhood Development?

Ask Free Question

The early childhood period is considered to be the most important developmental phase throughout the lifespan.  This period focuses on the physical, social/emotional and language/cognitive domains of development of a child, which have direct effects on their overall development as an adult in the future.

Physical Development: Physical developments of a child are associated with the motor skills and physical growth of the child. As a child grows and his or her nervous system become more mature, the child becomes more capable of performing increasingly complex actions such as walking, running, balance, and coordination which involve the larger muscles like arms and legs, as well as, some more intricate skills such as drawing, writing, grasping objects, throwing, waving, and catching, involving the smaller muscles in the fingers, toes, eyes, and other areas. Physical growth follows a directional pattern, such as the body's core, legs and arms develop before the small muscles in the fingers and hands.  The muscles in the center of the body become stronger and develop before those in the feet and hands. Development goes from the head to the toes.

Cognitive Development: Cognitive abilities are associated with memory, reasoning, problem-solving and thinking that continue to emerge throughout childhood. There are four Stages of Cognitive Development:

Stage

Age Period Between

Milestones

Sensorimotor Stage

Birth to age 2

Respond to sensory stimuli by simple motor skills.

Preoperational Stage

Age 2 to 6

Learn to use language, but do not understand logic or mentally manipulate information and understand others' point of view.

Concrete Operational Stage

Age 7 to 11

Begin to think logically about concrete events, but have difficulty understanding abstract or hypothetical concepts.

Formal Operational Stage

Age 12 to adulthood

Able to think about abstract concepts and develop skills such as logical thought, deductive reasoning, and systematic planning.

Language Development: It is the most remarkable development in children. According to several researches, it is found that language development begins at fetal level, as the fetus is able to identify the speech and sound patterns of the mother's voice and by the age of four months, a child can distinguish between sounds and read lips. Infants are able to differentiate between speech sounds from all languages; however, around the age of 10 months they lose this ability and begin to recognize their native language only.

You can avoid pregnancy with low dose ocp to be started day 2 of periods. Its the best. Or in regular periods avoid sex or use condoms day 11 to day 20 of periods.

How much is the last AFI on sonography? Also, is there any growth lag noted? Are you having any leaking of fluid from the vagina? The decision for surgery depends on multiple factors. Your Gynaecologist will be the best person to take a call on it as she has seen you throughout your pregnancy and knows your history and clinical findings in detail. So trust her opinion on this rather than taking second opinions on forums like this. Or see one more Gynaecologist IN PERSON for an opinion.
