No of course not. It is very safe to insert coppert in asd closure patient. In fact it is the best contraceptive for such patients. I am giving you the reference of who (world health organisation) in which it is clearly mentioned that" there is no restriction" for use of coppert in such patients.

Count days form 09 jan. Today you have completed 21+29+31+30+7 days. So that's 17 weeks. After 16 weeks you are in 2nd trimester or 5th month. For health pregnancy eat, drink, sleep well. Avoid physical and mental stress but one type of mild exercise will be beneficial. Best is 20-25 mins walk over flat surface. Avoid smoking, alcohol, drugs, food additives, dust, smoke, exhaust. Personal hygiene is must. Wear loose clothes and keep home environment cheerful and calm.

I'm a virgin and girlfriend is also a virgin we both are planning to have sex since we are dating from a long time. How should we go about? Should I use condoms or contraceptive pills? When is the best time to have unprotected sex after her periods or before?

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26 days to 31 days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus18 days=8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD. Best for starters is to use condom correct use and check condom for tear after the use. If torn then ipill to be used immediately.

Reduce sweets, salt and bad fats but take a high protein diet like toned milk, curd, boiled eggs which are filling and one does not feel hungry for hours. A katori of nuts taken along with roasted chane help beat hunger pangs besides giving good proteins + healthy fats. Exercise more & do relax with yoga. Eat more raw seasonal fruits and vegetables & cut down every food causing distention e g. Pulses & sprouts.

Please discuss your and your husband's diagnostic tests that you have undergone so far so that I could suggest you accordingly although it takes few months to conceive after 3 years of marriage so my suggestion is also the same keep on trying for another 3 months and in the meantime go for semen analysis of your husband if you have not gone for it

Good hand washing is the key to preventing the spreading of common infections.

Generally, as a child, we hear from our parents repeatedly saying that ,'WASH YOUR HANDS PROPERLY'.

We might think that they are nagging , but it is very important to keep germs away.

So, Follow these simple steps to keep your hand clean:

1. Use warm water ( avoid cold or hot water).

2. It's not imperative to use antibacterial soap every time , ever regular soap insufficient.

3. Rub your hands together well and scrub all surfaces of hand . Lather up on both sides of hand , wrist , between your fingers, around your nails. The ideal time you should spend washing is 20 seconds.
4. Rinse well under warm running water and pat dry with clean towel.

Sometimes, excessive hand washing can cause dryness, so use mild soaps for washing , pat rather than rubbing with a towel for drying your hands and apply moisturising lotion afterwards.

Take care of above points, next time you wash your hands.

Hello. You haven't mentioned about whether you are breast-feeding your child? Is it your first child? Patience and communication with your partner are very important. Depending on your plans for future pregnancy, there are a number of birth control (contraceptive methods) available. Don’t forget to protect yourself from pregnancy until you are ready for another child, as well as using condoms for infection protection if this is a newer relationship. Speak to your health care provider about any questions specific to your situation. Below is a list pointing out the special considerations in the postpartum period. Oral contraceptive pill (OCP) Can be started at 3 weeks if not breastfeeding The combined pill (estrogen + a progestin) can decrease breast milk production so should not be started until at least 6 weeks postpartum. The Progestin-Only Pill does not affect milk supply and can be used during breastfeeding. When combined with the decreased fertility of breastfeeding, it makes a great choice for breastfeeding Moms. Contraceptive Patch or Vaginal Ring Similar to the combined OCP; start at 3 weeks if not breastfeeding or 6 + weeks if breastfeeding Injection Depo-Provera™ One shot every 12 weeks Can be given immediately postpartum regardless of breastfeeding No known effects on breast milk or infant ingestion of the hormone Intrauterine Device or Intrauterine System Inserted into uterus by a doctor more than 6 weeks after delivery Reliable, long-term birth control for up to 5 years but can be removed at any time The hormonal intrauterine system is as effective as tubal ligation Barrier Methods Hormone-free, only needed when you are actually having sex Condoms can be used anytime, and are commonly used temporarily while breastfeeding or to space out babies Use non-spermicidal condoms with lots of extra water-based lubricant to avoid vaginal irritation Diaphragms and cervical caps need to be re-fitted at 6 weeks postpartum Emergency Contraception Emergency Contraception (EC) pills are effective up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse but best if used within the first 24-48 hours. Emergency IUD is available up to 7 days after unprotected intercourse Sterilization Female sterilization = tubal ligation Permanent; only for couples who are absolutely sure their family is complete Abdominal surgery Can be performed the day after delivery while still in hospital through a 2 – 3 cm incision at the belly button Or, laparoscopically through one or 2 small incisions after 6 weeks Or hysteroscopically, where two small coils are placed in the openings of the tubes into the uterus Male sterilization = vasectomy Permanent; only for couples who are absolutely sure their family is complete An outpatient procedure Less risk and more effective than tubal ligation

Hello Aleena, Ejaculation near the vagina also can lead to pregnancy. Although 18th Feb must not have been a dangerous date for fertilization, it will be better that you take a urine pregnancy test at your home. If the result is negative, you can rest assured that this is a normal delay and you will get your periods sooner or later. Sometimes the periods even tend to get delayed by tension, worries or stress. So relax.

Pls do a preg test to confirm pregnancy first, it may be a hormonal problem. But however 3 months pregnancy is hazardous to remove, get a ultrasound done as well.
