To confirm duration of pregnancy in your case of irregular periods, best is ultrasound. Doctors can predict duration roughly bases on your last menses. From your story I can not make out when was your last menses. You can calculate from the first day of last menses. Usually symptoms you described they start at 6 weeks of pregnancy so mostly you r around 7 weeks. Best to do ultrasound to find out duration and health of the baby.

What is Ectopic Pregnancy the Most Difficult Type of Pregnancy?

What is Ectopic Pregnancy the Most Difficult Type of Pregnancy?

Ectopic pregnancy: Causes and symptoms

Ectopic pregnancy happens if the egg implants itself in the fallopian tube in place of the uterus. That's why this form of pregnancy is called a tubal pregnancy as well. Many a time, it may also implant itself in the belly, ovary or the cervix. If the egg is allowed to develop in the fallopian tube, it brings about the bursting of the tube, leading to instances of heavy bleeding.

What really causes this condition?

In this type of pregnancy, the cause isn't always easy to arrive at. In many cases, certain conditions have been found to bring about this pregnancy and these are:

- Damages to the fallopian tubes in the form of scarring and inflammation due to a preceding medical infection, condition or surgery

- Imbalances in the body's hormone levels

- Abnormalities in the genes

- Birth defects

- Medical problems that have an effect on the shape and condition of the reproductive organs and fallopian tubes

- Though it's rare, ectopic pregnancy can occur while using an intrauterine device or system for birth control

- Inflammation of your reproductive system such as pelvic inflammatory disease

How do you know that you suffer from one?

In terms of signs that will help you to easily identify whether you're having an ectopic pregnancy, the initial signs are:

- Light bleeding from your vagina

- Pain in the abdomen or in the pelvic region, which tends to occur after 6-8 weeks of a missed period

The other symptoms of this condition reveal themselves as you progress through the pregnancy and include,

- Dizziness or fainting as a result of internal bleeding

- Shoulder pain brought on by bleeding in the abdominal region

- Signs of shock

- Worsening of pelvic or belly pain

- Heavy vaginal bleeding

Additionally, a person with ectopic pregnancy also experience signs associated with early pregnancy such as:

- Nausea

- Tender breasts

- Fatigue

- Missed period

- Increased in frequency of urination

Hi Doctor, Me and my wife had a condom break while intercourse and she immediately took a Postpone - 72 (1.5 mg) within 2 hours of the act. Its been 6 days now and she felt bad back ache, nausea and headache. 1. Is the drug causing this as a side effect after 6 days. 2.

1. The drug can lead to acidity and so you cn have vomiting. 2. Antiepileptic drug will not affect functioning of that medicine. 3. There r no sure symptoms of pregnancy, but nausea, vomiting with missed period, slight lower abdominal pain etc. Are symptoms of pregnancy. Pregnancy test should b done past 2 or more days of your menses date.

Hi i'm 33 yrs old lady i've stretch marks on my tummy which looks very weird whenever I wore saree this occur after my first baby delivery who is now 10 yrs old is it possible that now without surgery it will gone.

Advanced Aesthetics

Both men and women are susceptible to stretch marks, particularly on the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, abdominal area, and lower back. There are several causes of stretch marks, including: genetics: women are more likely to get belly stretch marks if their mother, for instance, had stretch marks after pregnancy. Significant weight gain and loss: your skin stretches as your weight fluctuates, sometimes resulting in stretch marks. Puberty: growth spurts during puberty often result in stretch marks as the skin is unable to keep up with the body's rate of growth. Bodybuilding: rapid development of muscle mass may stretch the skin beyond its limits. Laser stretch mark removal during a laser stretch mark removal procedure, a beam of light removes thin layers of skin around the stretch marks. The excimer laser is uniquely effective for this procedure. Surgical stretch mark removal surgical stretch mark removal is the only effective option for the complete and permanent elimination of stretch marks. Other stretch mark removal treatments cosmetic dermatologists offer a variety of non-surgical alternatives for treating stretch marks. Popular and effective options include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and blue light therapy. These are good options for patients who want to avoid surgery, home remedies stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. 1. Castor oil castor oil, which is used in the treatment of a number of skin problems such as wrinkles, age spots, moles, dark spots, fine lines and pimples, can also be used to get rid of stretch marks. For treatment consult privately.

It is true that multiple pregnancy whether twin triplet or quadruplet have higher chances of premature delivery but such babies are more mature than a single baby at whatever age of gestation they deliver. Plan your delivery at a tertiary care centre with NICU facility.

Why Go for IVF?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Why Go for IVF?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medical procedure that side-steps the sexual act of conceiving and helps infertile couples, conceive a biological child. It involves the manual process of fertilization by combining an egg and sperm in the laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the female to impregnate her.

The inability to give birth through the natural way is caused due to complications like: blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS, endometriosis: where parts of the womb lining grow out of the womb, premature ovarian failure and so on.

If you or your partner is having trouble conceiving, you should opt for in vitro fertilization. It holds benefits like-

  1. High success rates: Women who underwent in vitro fertilisation using fresh embryos of their own fresh eggs, the projected live birth percentage was 32.2% for those under 35 years, 27.7% for women aged between 35 and 37 years, lowering to 5.0% in 43 to 44 years old and 1.9% for ages above 45. It has been proved that a female’s ability to conceive decreases with age. If infertility is detected at a younger age, the process of IVF is highly advantageous and successfully results in childbirth. The pregnancy rate can be as high as 40-50% .
  2. Proven track record: Technology has come a long way since the first baby via IVF Louise Brown was born in 1978 using a natural IVF. Medical techniques have advanced to create safer and successful treatment. The usage of the safest forms of IVF with low drug regimens today, have prevented side effects such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
  3. Harvests multiple eggs: If you are planning to have more than one child, via IVF you can freeze multiple eggs for future use. Unused or spare embryos can be donated to medical organisations for research purposes or to another couple willing to have a child.

IVF has proven successful in giving couples a wholesome and happy life.

If you want to discuss any other problem, Consult IVF Specialist

As per28 30 or irregular cycles you are to check most vital or danger period from 11-17 of28 day cycle and 12-18 off 30 day cycle where possible of pregnancy if unprotected sex done. Try too avoid these days. And takenatural process of withdrawal method in other times. Still if mishap happened then try to take oral contraceptive for this it will be ok.

PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME/ TENSION

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME/ TENSION
Approximately 5% of women experience severe premenstrual symptoms which include depression, anxiety,irritability and loss of confidence, and physical symptoms including bloating and mastalgia.
PMS is ‘a condition which manifests with distressing physical, behavioural and
psychological symptoms, in the absence of organic or underlying psychiatric disease, which regularly recurs during the second half of each menstrual (ovarian) cycle and which disappears or significantly regresses by the end of menstruation’.
The degree and type of symptoms can vary significantly from woman to woman. The precise aetiology of PMS remains unknown but cyclical ovarian activity and hormonal fluctuation throughout the month has been implicated.
Absence of PMS before puberty, in pregnancy and after the menopause supports this theory .
It can be graded as mild, moderate or severe depending on the degree of symptoms.
Since patients can find these symptoms very debilitating and often get depressed patiently listening to them and good support from their doctors and family is always helpful. I advise women to do regular exercise throughout the month like walking, jogging, cycling and swimming. Maintaining a optimal body weight and eating a well balanced diet also helps amongst other things getting a sense of confidence back.
Also reducing tea, coffee, salt intake in the second half of cycle is helpful. So is yoga.
There are medicines available in extreme cases to help with symptom control that can be prescribed by a doctor. These are usually hormonal pills to maintain a balance throughout the cycle or a group of drugs called SSRI's. Also in some cases vitamin supplements like evening primrose oil and vitamin E are prescribed. In extreme cases injections and surgery may have to be considered.

Hello Dr. I got married before 6 month my period date was 20 but now on 29 I didnt get my period what can I do I done upto on 25 but it was negative can I wait for some more day or anything else please help me fast.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

If your period is regular then 25th april would have shown the accutrate result. But if your period is irregular then there is a probability that the positive test will show at a later period. My suggesion is you wait for 7 more days. Even after that the pregnancy test is negative then there is some menstrual problem and for that you consult your doctor.

Your sister is pregnant. I advise her to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs. Do meditation for mental strength. Follow this, heart beat of baby will become normal.
