Pregnancy can be terminated with abortion pill only till 7 weeks of pregnancy. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines as you must be around 6 weeks by now. Dates are calculated from the first day of last menses. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for you. There r very few side effects but they r easily manageable.

Its called vaginismus. Women with vaginismus can do exercises, in the privacy of their own home, to learn to control and relax the muscles around the vagina. First, do Kegel exercises by squeezing the same muscles you use to stop the flow of urine when urinating: Squeeze the muscles. Hold for 2 seconds. Relax the muscles. Do about 20 Kegels at a time. You can do them as many times a day as you want to. After a few days, insert one finger, up to about the first knuckle joint, inside the vagina while doing the exercises. It's a good idea to clip your fingernails first and use a lubricating jelly. Or do the exercises in a bathtub, where water is a natural lubricant. Start with one finger and work your way up to three. You'll feel the vagina's muscles contracting around your finger, and you can always take your finger out if you're not comfortable.

How to increase the magnesium levels in your body?

Magnesium is very important macro-mineral present in the body. Many youths these days show signs of depression, lower physical and dimmed mental faculties due to low magnesium levels in their body.

Excessive stress or disease reduces the utilization of magnesium in the body
Having high carb, low fibre diets like pastries, cakes, breads, cookies etc.

I hope and pray that you are under care of a Gynecologist. If not that would be the first thing to do, to consult a gynecologist. Usually in pregnancy there is NO bleeding. If bleeding occurs, it becomes a threatened abortion case and in such instances, ultrasound scan is done to ascertain the pregnancy growth and fetal heart rate. So please get a consultation and scan ASAP

Drink plenty of fluids, fruit juices. Increase intake of fruits, cucumber, and greens. Regularly oil your head. Have protein-rich diet for breakfast. Do not skip meals.

Hello, Thyroid test should have been done before getting pregnant, According to American Thyroid Association ideally TSH levels should be below 2 mU/L before getting pregnant. During pregnancy levels should be maintained as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.3 to 3 mU/L & 3rd 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. This is absolutely essential because fetal development is affected if the level is higher. The current level is very high. Your gynecologist should have mentioned this to in her briefing. Anyway, if you are not on thyroxine, please start treatment right away. Thanks.

Bleeding do occur after taking such hormonal tablets 1-3 days after taking it. Although there are no chances of pregnancy but there is a possibility of complications due to taking such tablets. So wait for your next periods which may get delayed by 2-4 days due to taking such pills ----------

No honey or Nimboo will help lose weight. It's all about overall balance. The weight gain post pregnancy is because you may initially itself have been overweight and that you did not take care of your health after delivery. If we stay active and take good nutrition the pregnancy weight always comes down. Anyway it's never too late. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

It is totally normal. Vaginal discharge is normal. It's consistency and amount changes throughout the month and with age. Another factor is sexual arousal. There is no need to worry unless there is a foul smell, greenish-yellowish discharge, itching or pain.

Hi. Ask her to take good, healthy diet of iron, protein, calcium, drink 10-12 glasses of water, do regular light exercises daily (not during menses) sp. breathing exercises, enough of sound sleep. Along with that, let her take homoeopathic medication which will increase her iron, calcium, stamina and will control the bleeding part as well: Schwabe's Five Phos., Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for a month. And Hamamelis Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup water/ every 2 hrly during menses only. Revert me back with her condition. Take care.
