If you already had proper menses after having sex, then there is no chance of pregnancy. If menses were not as usual, then us should do urine pregnancy test. Menses can get delayed because of hormonal changes or stress also. If urine test is negative, you should wait for another 15 days to have spontaneous menses.

If after taking abortion pill at home and pregnancy not clear after 5 days of bleeding then what shall I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It, may take 7-14 days for the bleeding to stop. If during this time bleeding does not stop means pregnancy is not aborted completely, which needs to be removed with d&c to prevent infection. But you have to wait for at least 7-14 days after the vaginal insertion of the tablets.

No Gyanecologist will never prescribe hormone tablet at the early stage of your married life they will request you to wait for 1 year. Check for thyroid and haemoglobin for your irregular mensturation. unless you have the hormone pronlem go for medication else do regular exercises and expose to sunlight regularly and have nutritious food.

Sometimes these kind of reports come and if the scan centre and scan doctor are good you can wait and see in the next scan whether it disappears. If not get a second opinion from a reputed scan doctor.

Menstrual Migraines Treatment

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Advanced Infertility
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Menstrual Migraines Treatment

Menstrual Migraine can be termed as an extremely persistent headache that can happen just before, during or right after menstruation. Often, the feeling of nausea also keeps on lingering. The cause which triggers this type of migraine can be the fluctuating levels of oestrogen that a woman’s body experiences when she is on her periods.

What can be the possible treatment?

  1. Application of ice pack or simply rubbing ice on your forehead can help lessen the pain a bit.

  2. Relaxation exercises can be practiced to reduce the tension of the muscles.

  3. Acupuncture therapy can also be done to improve the headache and it can further aid in relaxation of the muscles.

  4. Over the counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol can be taken for immediate relief.

  5. Your doctor can also administer TRIPTAN (specific drugs used to treat the symptoms of migraine which work on the chemical receptors within the brain) if the pain is unbearable.

  6. Do not experiment much with hormonal contraception methods after unsafe sexual intercourse. It just might worsen the pain.

  7. NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) can also be administered, only if they have been prescribed by the doctor, as the harmful effects of those drugs are aplenty.

  8. Magnesium deficiency in the body is one of the most important causes for menstrual migraines. Thus, eating foods rich in magnesium such as dark leafy greens, nuts, whole grains, avocados, bananas, etc. and taking magnesium supplements or vitamins are advisable.

  9. There are certain foods which can even trigger such attacks. They include foods packed with monosodium glutamate (MSG), aged cheese and caffeine. Such foods should be strictly avoided. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi doctor! I heard that girl with thyroid has less chances of getting pregnant. Is that true?

Hi doctor!

Hello, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if well controlled with TSH maintained around 2 mU/L, conception is quite possible. Only when it is uncontrolled with high TSH, then there is problem. Thanks.
