Hi Shashi. I understand your problem. Do not stress so much over this issue. Stress itself may cause delyed period. As far as your fear of pregnancy is concerned, you can get a home pregnancy test kit and check yourself now itself. You can safely assume the result to be correct as after 45 days the result would be accurate. We can handle the issue from there as per your result. Do not worry so much. All the best

Hi lybrate-user, chances of getting pregnant with unprotected intercourse on day 25th will be very very low. Don't worry about delayed period, it could be due to hormonal imbalance or stress. Please await period for 3-4 days if don't come then get urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

It happens ,that after taking Ipill,your periods get disturbed for the time being.Although chances of pregnancy are negligible as you have had sex in almost your safe period but I will advise you to undergo URINE PREGNANCY TEST as a precautionary measure,You will soon get your periods once urine test shows negative results.

Oral birth control pills are not a problem in future, she can take the tablet. But for fertility issues age is a factor, as with the advancing age the quality and quantity of eggs reduces which in turn causes difficulty in conceiving. Complications in/during pregnancy may develop in future. So we would advice you not to wait for too long like 3 years. Since both of your reports are fine for now so you can wait for a year or so.

If the menstrual cycle of your wife is of 28 -30 days then the safe period would be 3-4 days after completion of periods (3-5 day bleeding) or 5-6 days before start of periods, if menstrual cycle of your wife is always on time.

Hello, You should try for atleast one year to conceive after marriage. You can try in favorable period of your month. Get follicular monitoring done to see if you are ovulating every month.

Use of condom serves dual purpose of preventing pregnancy and std. Not using will reverse the effect. You can have intercourse without condom. Oral sex is not uncommon, depending on desires of partner, provided neither of you has oral or penile ulcers & not harbouring hepatitis b. Swallowing of healthy semen is of no consequence. & vice versa. Be monogamous & adopt healthy life stylr. Ensure sterility of syringe & needles while taking any injection.

Hello, to confirm pregnancy get a serum beta hcg test done, if the hcg levels are more than 3mIU then you are pregnant for sure. In that case you can visit your gynecologist to seek medical termination.

What is ovulation period in females? Are there ways to find out the exact ovulation day? And having sex on that day results in 100 % pregnancy? Please give me proper solution.

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
You can not be 100%sure about ovulation day unless you get it checked in the ultrasound by getting follicular study done and again having sex even on the ovulation day is not 100% confirmatory to get pregnant.

The ipill was taken bit late. Best take within 12h. Ipill can delay the next cycle by 10-15 days. Wait for another week and repeat the pregnancy test if still periods don't come. Earliest changes in pregnancy are darkening around the nipples with increased sensitivity. Some giddiness and nausea may come early morning.
