If you had unprotected sex this mnth then you can think. Last mnth you got your periods. So that sex has nothing to do with your periods this mnth. Wait for another 4-5 days. If you had sex even for a single time this mnth then get your pregnancy test done.

INFERTILITY

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Chennai
INFERTILITY
What Is Infertility?

Infertility is defined as not being able to become pregnant after a year of trying—or after six months, if you are 35 or older . And it’s not just a woman’s problem. One-third of infertility cases are due to male-only problems, one-third to female-only problems, and the final one-third to a mix of male and female problems or unknown problems

What Causes Infertility?

To become pregnant, many steps in the reproductive process have to be precisely aligned:

A woman’s ovary must release an egg (ovulation).
The egg must then travel through the fallopian tube toward the uterus, which is also called the womb.
A man’s sperm must be in the woman’s body during this specific time. It must also meet and join with (fertilize) the egg as it is traveling through the fallopian tubes.
The fertilized egg must then reach the uterus.
At the uterus, it must push its way inside and implant itself (implantation).

If there is a problem with any of these steps, infertility can occur.

Infertility in Women

Female infertility is most often caused by problems in ovulation—marked by irregular or absent periods. These problems may be related to hormonal disorders, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), or primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), when a woman’s ovaries stop working before age 40.

Other causes include:

uterine fibroids, benign growths that can keep fertilized eggs from implanting properly in the uterine lining
scar tissue after surgery
early menopause
blocked or scarred fallopian tubes, due to infection or endometriosis

Endometriosis is an often painful condition in which the uterine tissue that is supposed to line the inside of your uterus begins to grow outside the uterus, causing it to become trapped as it has no place to go (uterine tissue inside the uterus is shed each month during the menstrual cycle). The surrounding body tissues become inflamed, and scar tissue may form—sometimes inside the fallopian tubes.

Infertility in Men

Problems with sperm production and delivery, low sperm count, and low motility (the ability of sperm to swim and fertilize the egg) can all affect male fertility.

Varicocele is a disorder where the veins servicing a man’s testicles have incompetent or leaky valves. The backflow of blood can enlarge the blood vessels and can raise the temperature of the testicles causing a low sperm count or abnormal sperm. Testicles are generally slightly below the core body temperature.

Lifestyle Factors

Other lifestyle choices can impair healthy egg and sperm production, including:

smoking
heavy alcohol use
drug use
being overweight or underweight
an excessive amount of exercise
stress
In men, environmental toxins, such as pesticides, and high temperatures (for example, in hot tubs) have also been shown to affect sperm count.

Leucorrhoea is mainly caused by anaemia and/ or infection. If it's not cured, many other psychosomatic problems take place. Stress's is another reason. So pl keep vagina clean and see there s no foul smell or discharge is not yellow or reddish. Take nutrition well. It's very important. Our leucorrhoea cure package is an excellent combo of herbs and other things. We simply use best quality raw material and process it well. In one month a lot of changes in health and glow on face is felt as well as discharge is checked

Yes it is possible. Pregnancy and kicking on stomach are 2 different entities. You were suffering from pcod and you got cured by hormones and that has enhanced your chances of getting pregnant. But your husband will be hopefully more kind now that there us a good news.

My girlfriend is 21 years old. We did sex for the first time on 6th Feb using protection. Her hymen was broken during intercourse. But after 1 to 2 weeks she was having white discharge from vagina hugely for few days which was not normal to her. She got her periods started on 28th feb. My question is that is that white discharge is happening for sex? Is is abnormal or disease? If yes what is remedy? Can further sex will affect this more?

If the white discharge was not dirty looking, smelling or mixed with blood, it may have been normal. If there is no irritation, burning or scratching in vaginal area, or any pain in the lower stomach, then it may not be a worry. Some discharge is normal during and immediately after intercourse. Some women have white discharge in the second half of the cycle, just before the periods. They are also normal. If she has any of above symptoms, treatment will be necessary after a check up.

Leucorrhoea is a sticky, watery, whitish discharge of mucus from the vaginal passage. It may occur normally at all times and its quantity may increase before and after menstruation. An abnormal and large discharge may indicate some infection in the uterus, cervix and lower reproductive tract, for example vaginitis, ulceration or suppurative swelling of vagina, extending to cervix, causing endocervicitis (inflammation of the mucous lining of the neck of the womb) in which surface cells, i. E, epithelium, may die. Therefore, destruction of these cells and their debris results in their white or yellow discharge from the vaginal opening. (see also trichomonas vaginalis under vaginitis.) in some cases the swelling of uterus (metritis) or mucosa of the uterus (endometritis) causes excessive leucorrhoea with pressing down in the vagina and in some cases with a sensation as if everything would pass out through the vagina. Leucorrhoea has different types of discharges with different colours. In some cases, it is albuminous, thick, slimy, white mucous like pieces of curd or white of an egg and in some cases it is watery, acrid and corroding in nature. There is itching in the vaginal passage and discharge has offensive smell. It has various colours white, pale yellow, yellowish green, ash-grey, blood or pink colour.

Hello Doctor, Thanks for the tips. But why does a normally productive person start procrastinating? It there a psychological reason or disorder behind this tendency? Does subliminal affirmations / hypnotherapy (or even simple impositions) help with such cases? Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Procrastination is just a type of behaviour which develops and is reinforced due to unhealthy negative emotions and irrational beliefs. Behaviour therapies like cbt or ret can certainly help. Improvement with hypnotherapy lacks documentary evidence and is subjective to some extent.

Postpartum Care - A Guide

Postpartum Care - A Guide

Postpartum is the period after one's labour and delivery. Pregnancy and postpartum are a time when a woman's body changes to a great extent, in order to first accommodate the baby and then go through labour and delivery. A vaginal delivery can have many implications when it comes to the postpartum.

The same goes for a Caesarean Section or C Section as well. Let us find out what your postpartum care routine should include.

  1. Vaginal Soreness: Deal with vaginal soreness with the help of stool softeners and pain relievers, as prescribed by your gynaecologist. You should also make hygiene a priority at this time. Use a washcloth and warm water to clean the area every time you urinate. Also, you can use an ice pack if the wound is particularly painful. 
  2. Discharge: Vaginal discharge in the postpartum period is called lochia, and it usually carries on for a few weeks after the baby is born. You must use a sanitary napkin during this period and clean up regularly. If your bleeding or discharge is accompanied by fever, then you should contact your gynaecologist immediately. 
  3. C Section Wound: In case there is redness and swelling in the wound, accompanied by symptoms like pain and foul smelling discharge from the vagina, you will need to get in touch with your doctor immediately so that he or she can check for possibility of infections.
  4. Movement: After a C Section, you will need to take as much rest as possible, so that the wound heals properly. This includes avoiding making too many trips up and down the stairs as well. It would be a good idea to have a family member or partner around who can help as well. Gentle walks after a week or two are usually recommended for the body to come back to normal gradually.
  5. Kegels: Do kegels or contracting exercises for the strength of the pelvic floor to return, especially after a vaginal delivery. This will help in alleviating pain and burning sensation during urination at this time.
  6. Nutrition: Take special care to eat nutritious and home cooked food, especially if you are breast feeding. This will also help in the healing of the vaginal or C Section wound. Also, a high fibre diet will help in better bowel movement,  which will lessen the pain while visiting the bathroom.

Taking care of your body in postpartum is a matter of bringing it back to normal gradually even as you deal with the side effects of delivery. Ensure that you are in touch with your doctor.

Should I have sex daily or on alternate days for pregnancy. Which is the best option?

Should I have sex daily or on alternate days for pregnancy. Which is the best option?
Normal Sperms can survive in the female body for 2-7 days times based on their capacity. So having intercourse on alternate days from 10th day of the cycle to 18th day of the cycle increases the chances of pregnancy.

yes in pregnancy avoid chicken,fish and papaya Avoid soft cheeses with a white-mould rind such as brie, camembert and goat's cheese, or soft cheese with blue mould such as Roquefort, Danish blue, Gorgonzola. This is because of the risk of infection from listeria, which can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. Hard cheeses are fine as they do not provide the right soft environment for listeria to grow. Other types of cheeses should be fine but check that they are made with pasteurised milk. Goat and sheep cheeses are often unpasteurised. Don't drink unpasteurised milk..
