It is not done at 30 weeks of pregnancy. It can be done only till 20 weeks. This is done to find out if the baby is suffering from down syndrome which is extreme rare phenomenon. At 30 weeks of pregnancy you can do ultrasound which is better than any blood tests.

The most common cause of delayed periods is pregnancy. That depends if you had regular periods before marriage. If you had regular periods before then could be stress related. Or maybe you have not tested with pregnancy test properly. Either you repeat the urine test or get a blood pregnancy test called beta hcg.

Pre-ejaculatory semen contains enough sperms to result in pregnancy. If the delay is more than 7 days, do a pregnancy test.

Thats ok. In a married couple one contraceptive is enough and if she has been having the oral pills and is having no problems with it. Usually the tablet is to be taken once in 24 hours. And it's intake is not related to sex! the unwanted 21 tablets are routine oc pills like mala n, mala d etc. So they have to be taken daily for the 21 days without break, and in these 21 days even if sex doesnot happen on a day or two, the pills have to be taken without a break to complete the pack. I think you are confused between unwanted 21 and unwanted 72 tablets. Unwanted 21 are regular oral contraceptive pills which are taken for 21 days, folowed by 7 day break cycle. Whereas the unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive pill, which is taken" after" sex. But. Unwanted 72 is meant for couples who have very infrequent sex, say once or twice a month. If a married lady, or a woman having frequent sexual activity takes unwanted 72 after or before each sex, it will unwanted 72 after each act of sex, she will create havoc for her menses. And her menses will become very irregular.

3 Major Causes of Infertility in Women

The inability to conceive after indulging in unprotected sex is known as infertility. It can also be referred to the biological incapability of a male to cause the conception or a woman being unable to carry the pregnancy for full term. Research has shown that female problems contribute to over half of all the infertility cases while a majority of the other causes include sperm disorders.

Treatment of infertility depends on:
1. Cause of Infertility
2. Duration of Infertility
3. Age of both partners
4. Personal preferences

Causes
Causes of infertility in women include:
1. Ovulation disorders: This is regarded as the most common cause of infertility in women. The disorders can be caused due to the following
i. Premature ovarian failure
ii. PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
iii. Poor egg quality
iv. Hyperprolactinemia
v. Overactive or Underactive thyroid gland
vi. Chronic conditions like cancer or AIDS.

2. Problems in fallopian tubes or uterus: Abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes render the woman incapable of conceiving naturally. This might be due to:
i. Submucosal fibroids
ii. Surgery
iii. Endometriosis
iv. Previous sterilization treatment

3. Medications: There is a possibility that treatment will cure infertility. Examples include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.
Treatment of infertility might involve a significant amount of psychological, physical, temporal and financial commitments.
In men, treatment is done to treat lack of healthy sperm or general sexual problems. The treatments include:
1. Medications
2. Surgery
3. Change in lifestyle
4. Sperm retrieval

Even though it is possible to restore fertility in women using only one or two therapies, a number of treatments might be required before conception is possible. Some of these treatments include:
1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
2. Stimulation of ovulation with fertility drugs
3. Surgery to restore fertility

In situations where pregnancy does not happen spontaneously, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) can be used by couples to achieve pregnancy. It is a form of fertility treatment which involves the handling of sperm and egg. The entire ART team consists of psychologists, physicians, embryologists, nurses and lab technicians.

One common ART technique is In vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a process where an egg and sperms are manually combined in a laboratory dish, followed by transfer of embryo to the uterus. Some aspects involved in an IVF cycle are:
1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
2. Assisted hatching
3. Donor eggs or sperm
4. Gestational carrier

Some complications that may occur during the treatment of infertility are:
1. Multiple pregnancy
2. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)

Hello Doctor, During 7 months pregnancy, Is it safe to drink glucose water or eat glucose.
Hi. Its ok to take glucose if she does not diabetes or if she is not already obese. But its always better to have plain water than glucose or soft drinks. If she wants some flavour, I would recommend coconut water or adding a few drops of lemon to the water. As such in a normal healthy pregnancy no extra salt or sugar is required.

If you do not want another pregnancy for 3 years, you can go for iucd, or use condoms, I would prefer condoms. If the caesaren has happened due to a non repetative cause, you can very well try for a normal delivery. But if there is an genuine indication, do not resist the decison of your gynec for a caesaren.

It is nothing to feel embarrassed and ashamed having gynecomastia. It is caused due to several reasons such as hormonal imbalance, prescription of illegal drugs or excess of fat in the body.
Gynaecomastia/ pseudogynaecomastia surgery by laser liposuction and laser gland removal without scar in the chest.

Affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of indian men. For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, male breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured.
