After each ectopic, the chance of having normal pregnancy in next pregnancy is 90% and having live baby is 33%. There is few chance of preventing this complication- like treatment of infection, avoidance of smoking etc.

You are pregnant for sure, remember hcg is pregnancy hormone, can be detected in blood as soon as conception occurs but when level exceeds 1000, that is after 3-4 days of skipped date, hormone comes out through urine and sensitive lines pick it up to show as 2 lines, faint line means early pregnancy. Do urine kit test after a week if you need reassurance, you will see 2 lines, well formed.

How to make your home mosquito free

With zika virus threat looming large in India, dengue, chikungunya, malaria and other deadly diseases aren't cases on the rise throughout the country, there has been an alarming rise is the use of market bought mosquito repellents. While they are no doubt, very effective, but they also emit gases which can be harmful to us. There exist in our homes, commodities with which we can achieve the same results - to have a mosquito-free home. Few such ways are as follows:

1. Though it might smell bad initially, it is also the reason why mosquitoes will stay away. Crush a few pods of garlic, boil it in water and spray the liquid in the room, especially in the corners.

2. Camphor is easily available and good way to get rid of mosquitoes. Light a little bit of camphor in a room after closing all doors and windows. Leave the room for about twenty minutes and when you go back, your room will be mosquito free.

3. Infuse citronella oil in a candle and burn the candle to have a mosquito free room. Alternatively, you can use the oil in a vaporizer.

4. If you have a garden, plant mosquito repellent plants like lavender, catnip and citronella in the areas near the windows of your house to drive the mosquitoes away.

5. Get rid of all stored water within and around your house. These waters are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. If you need to store water for the unexpected shortage of water, make sure that you keep changing it.

Hi Mukesh. It seems you have developed a sinus after c section site infection. Your scar site should be opened and the internally collected pus should be drained. With such severe infection, plain oral antibiotics will not be sufficient. injective antibiotics with daily would dressing would be needed otherwise this infection can become even worse. Please take appropriate help immediately.

Have a small teaspoon of "Gulkand" (a mixture of rose petals and sugar) after your meals or after being out in the hot sun for long. It works like a coolant for the body.

What is a gatroendoscope?

Gastroendoscope is a highly sophisticated instrument which is having a shaft of 9mm in diameter. It has got a fibre optic bundles passed through the shaft to transmit the light to the tip and the image to the endoscopist.

The adaptation of endoscopes to video monitoring system has been developed to use in computer chip technology and now it is in routine use in all endoscopy suites.

Advantages of water intake

Water, a basic need of every lifeform, helps a lot in fighting against some common diseases/ health problems.

Drinking water, either plain or in the form of other fluids or foods, is essential to your health.

It helps in maintaining balance of fluids in our body. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.

It helps keep skin looking good. It helps in preventing skin problems like acne. It also keeps your skin moistened and gives it a natural glow.

It helps in many diseases related to stomach like gastritis/acidity. Drinking sufficient amount of water daily will avoid the problem of acidity in your near future.

It also helps in losing weight in case of obese individuals and also in maintaining weight in case of non-obese individuals.

It helps in preventing as well as treating urinary infections.

It helps in maintaining normal bowel function and prevents constipation. Actually, water along with a high fibre diet is the perfect combination for those suffering from constipation.

Now, the question in every mind- how much water should one drink? people drink 2-3 glasses and think thats enough for a day. Some people don't keep count and are not sure if they are having sufficient water daily.

Its best to keep a one litre bottle and set a target to drink at least 3 such bottles in a day, that makes 3 liters of water intake daily. Also, eat more fruits and vegetables (salad). Their high water content will add to your hydration.

Be hydrated be healthy

Vomiting is normal during first 3 to 4 months of pregnancy. But if it is excessive you will have to take medications. Good nutrition is very important for the growth of the baby so nauseas and vomitting has to be controlled. There is no good home remedy for this.

Dear lybrate-user The best time to do your Urine pregnancy test is when you miss your cycle or 14 days after sex, which ever is later. Doing the test earlier might give false negatives. However, Doing a blood pregnancy test (Bhcg) can give better results 4 days before missing the cycle. Your thyroid seems to be under control. Good luck:)

Hello, please get a serum progesterone levels done on day 18-21 to rule out any progesterone deficiency. If yes then you would have to be placed on cyclical progesterones for next 6 months. Regards.
