You first need to go for detailed work up to diagnose the cause of miscarriage and then plan for pregnnacy. At the same time, control weight.

Hi lybrate-user if accidentally their is spill it can cause pregnancy. If it's in fertile single drop can cause pregnancy. Now their is no time to use emergency contraceptive pill. Better to await period if missed period then get pregnancy test done.

Do you think if a women orgasms and satisfied first by lets say a minute before the guy, that she lowers her chances on becoming pregnant or higher chances, and in fertile days if white discharge comes during and after orgasms and satisfaction then how much chances of conceiving?

It is not the timing of the orgasm, rather it is the timing of the fertile days, which raises the chance of pregnancy. White discharge is not directly related to the chance of conceiving.

I think you are suffered from dysmenorrea, allopathy suggests analgesics for it. You may follow ayurveda, it also gives better result.

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and as a byproduct of normal metabolism. Dietary antioxidants include selenium, vitamin a and related carotenoids, vitamins c and e, plus various phytochemicals such as lycopene, lutein, and quercetin.

There are large amounts of antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains and smaller amounts of antioxidants in meats, poultry and fish. Junk foods, such as highly processed fast foods tend to be much lower in antioxidants.

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week

3 lesser known facts about breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is advocated to be the only best thing for a newborn. But while it is the most natural thing to do, it isn't an easy process. It is challenging and full of surprises. Researches throw up facts that surprise all. For example: breastfeeding is like a shield against breast cancer.
Here are 3 such lesser known facts:

1. The milk contents - ever wondered what your baby thinks of the taste of your breast milk. Well, the fact is that your breast milk is tailor-made for your baby. From the taste to its benefits, it is a full course meal. When the feeding begins, the milk is watery. This is to quench the baby's thirst. Then the consistency thickens and the milk becomes higher in fat content. This meets your baby's electrolyte needs as well as energy requirement. Want to know something more amazing? through the day, your breasts milk's properties keep changing. By evening, it has higher sedating properties and helps the baby's body meet nutritional demands. This should explain that satisfied smile babies have when they sleep right after their feeds.
2. Variation in milk production - it is okay and natural if you feel you are lopsided. Many breastfeeding mothers feel that one breast is heavier than the other since it produces more milk. This is possible and happens a lot. Our body is not perfectly symmetrical between left and right. This applies to breasts as well and shouldn't be worried about. Because of this, milk production can also vary between both the breasts.
3. It causes weightloss - some women are known to lose their pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Yes, this is also a lesser known fact. Breast milk happens to be a high calorie food which the baby literally sucks off the mother's body. This leads to shrinking of the mother's body.

You need to worry. You have back pain problem. I advise you to do slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning for 30 times. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take lots of water and fluids. Do stretching exercises for your back as it could be due to tightness of back muscles. Follow and give feedback.

If it is within 14 to 16 days after period in any woman who is having a strict regular cycle of 28 days. If the cycle is irregular nobody knows. But in even regular cycled women ovulation can occur 14th - 2 days. So unprotected sex is not good any time you may be in trouble with unwanted pregnancy.

Hello, you need to keep a pillow under your back and lie down for next 15 min in the same position to allow sperms to stay inside the vagina and don't try to push them out by contracting your vaginal muscles.

Appreance of menses vary from girl to girl some get at 12 while some at 15. So just wait and watch for two more years. Having sex at such a young age is not recommended as your body is not ready to accept it and that's also when your menses have not started. If possible share your thoughts and concerns with someone elder in the family, preferably your mother, to understand better the implications of early sex and its disadvantages.

White discharge is not normal. This condition is called leukorrhea. Cramps in your legs at the time of menses is certainly due to leukorrhea. Start taking pushyanug chooran 1tsf twice daily. It is an ayurvedic med without any side effect. Never ever take any allopathic med for leukorrhea. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

day 8 to day 18 of a normal 30 day cycle are usually fertile days,else a frequency of thrice in a week ll suffice. its a common query of patients regarding semen should come out or not after sex,getting small amount of semen volume expelled out after getting up after sex is not unusual and ll not affect fertility.
