No need of unwanted 72 also as you have in safe period. (unproted sex between 5 days before menses and also 5 days after menses doesn't results into conception or pregnancy and called it as safe period. Only cycle of female should b very regular on monthly basis)

Hello, as pregnancy test is negative, it ensures that you are not pregnant, hence wait for another week to allow your menses to start naturally and if they don't then you may opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

My wife is 27 years old. She is feeling burning pain in her vagina when I put my penis. So she is not allowed me to do sex from 2 years. Remaining time she is ok. She has good health also. Why this problem with her. Suggest any medicines.

It might be due to tightness of vagina and I will suggest you to stimulate her clitoris for a minute and than insert your penis and even if the problem persists than we have to examine her for further guidance

My daughter is married since 6 years. She had conceived in 2013, but it was Empty Sach and hence laparoscopy was done. Also the ovarian cyst was removed. Later on, the cyst was found when scanned, as she was not conceived. Now after home treatment ,one of her Ovary is almost clear, while the other is still having cyst, though reduced. Gynac Doctor suggested ,you can try as one ovary is clear and ovulation is from alternate ovaries by cycle. How to confirm the proper ovulation from clear ovary now so that attempt can be made without anxiety in the prospective ovulation cycle. What Is the cause of empty sach--due to sperm mobility/strength or weak ovum?

You have given qn incomplete information but still I will try and answer to best of what I can make out. Well she is married for 6 years and has not conceived since the last abortion in 2013. An ovarian cyst has been removed for her you have not provided her age as well. It would be best that they visit a fertility expert who can evaluate her ovarian reserve as with even the best surgeons ovarian surgeries reduce that. Also that they evaluate her tubes and husband semen test is also done.

Hello- 10 home remedies to beat pain during your periods Suffering from cramps during those days of the month? Ditch those painkiller, try something natural instead. Why do periods hurt so much? Menstrual cramps are caused due to the shedding of the inner lining of the uterine wall. This shedding is assisted by a host of hormones, the master being ‘prostaglandins’. Where there is pain there are prostaglandins! This hormone is also prominent during delivery. It is responsible for pushing the lining of the uterus out. Apart from all the hormonal action, the poor uterus is devoid of blood, therefore the muscle spasms. In severe cases this condition is called Dysmenorrhea. Now that we know why we suffer from menstrual cramps, here are some tips to help relieve the discomfort: Keep up the exercise: It is important that you continue with gentle exercise during your periods. It helps by releasing beta-endorphins, which are internal Opioids — your own ‘human morphine’. It is natural to feel bloated before your periods, if you reduce your salt intake a few days before your periods it will help your kidneys flush out excess water. You can also try these 4 yoga poses to beat pain during periods. Remedy #1: A great pain reliever is the wild yam (Ratalu), its antispasmodic qualities help make the pain that much more bearable. Remedy #2: Raspberry leaf or jasmine flavored green tea work wonders in calming the body and mind. Remedy #3: Include a glass of milk in your breakfast. Calcium is a good cure for cramps. If you are not such a ‘milk’ person or are lactose intolerant about 600mg (2-4 tablets) of calcium chewables should do the trick. Remedy #4: Have generous helpings of papaya during and before your periods. Papaya contains ‘papain’ an enzyme that helps to regulate and helps to ease the flow during menstruation. Remedy #5: Carrots are not only good for your eyes; they also assist in regulating menstruation. A tall glass of carrot juice can go a long way in making you feel much better. Remedy #6: Aloe vera juice with honey is also well known to ease the flow and reducing the pain. Remedy#7: Avoid red meat and caffeine. They have properties that exacerbate the pain. Remedy #8: Have a hot shower. Concentrate the flow of water on your back and abdomen. A hot water bag also helps to relieve discomfort. Remedy #9: Applying lavender oil around your stomach is known to help relieving cramps in just 10 to 15 mins. Remedy #10: Just remember to be kind to yourself – relax, read a book, listen to some soft music or chat up with friends. If you feel happy and rejuvenated, your mind will help you fight physical pain.
