The best I can suggest with Ayurveda perspective is go for 'Aartav Shuddhi' procedure which is oral administration of herbal decoctions and other herbo mineral combos. It's a non invasive, non surgical, non toxic formulae which act on female reproductive system and opens 'kaphavritt' channels by curetting effect thereby have the potential to cure cysts, endometrial problems and regulates M.c. The duration of course usually is four to six months and rest depends on individuals

If already on regular contraceptive pills then you don't require ipill, only hormonal imbalance is created, chances of pregnancy are very low.

Hello, Kindly explain me what type of irregularity is there - are you getting periods frequently/ getting delayed/ much bleeding during the menses? Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses – Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

If after 15 days of missed period urine test is negative, then you can not be pregnant (to be 100% sure you can repeat the test after 7 days if proper menses does not start by then) and this kind of menses can come because of hormonal changes. As you r married since 5 years, you should start treatment to get pregnant from a good gynecologist.

Hi, the most common side effects of abortion pills are nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. A woman can also have some fever. These are generally less severe if misoprostol is used vaginally. If there is heavy bleeding. Common side effects of d & c (dilatation & curretage) include nausea, bleeding, and cramping which may last for two weeks following the procedure. Although rare, the following are additional risks related to dilation and evacuation: damage to uterine lining or cervix, perforation of the uterus, infection, and blood clots. **********better to consult a gynaecologist before taking any decision and use any of the available contraceptive method to avoid unwanted pregnancy rather choosing abortion to avoid it!********

Dear, once your wife is pregnant and she is already 3 months through so the pregnancy behaves like pretty much any other pregnancy but as every human body is different therefore she will require medications as per her body needs. Which is to be examined in person by a gynaecologist

Fungal infection is the commonest cause; especially if you are diabetic. So you need to go to a doctor to get a prescription of an anti-fungal cream.

The most fertile period of a cycle is mid-cycle if a woman has regular 28-30 days cycle. Therefore having intercourse regularly from 9th or 10th day after periods starts for another 7 or 9 days increases the chances of achieving a pregnancy.

Can STDs Spread without Having Sex?

M.Sc - Psychology, MS- Sexualty
Sexologist
Ask Free Question

STDs or diseases that spread due to the exchange of bodily fluids and most of them are treatable in nature, but one should get them treated as soon as poosible and should not ignore them as them can turn fatal as well. And, yes STDs can also spread without having sex. Some of the most common way of getting STDs without penetrative intercourse is mentioned below.

The most common way of contracting Sexually transmitted disease without sexual intercourse is:
1. Pucker up: Kissing can also cause STDs. Infections can be transmitted through the saliva if you swap your spit. Diseases like Mononucleosis and STD’s like herpes can be transmitted through kissing. This can cause cold sores and infections in the mouth.

2. Oral sex: If a person has an STD, he or she can easily transmit the disease to their partner by having oral sex. During oral sex, fluids from the genitals can flow to the mouth and vice versa. For example STDs caused by herpes simplex virus 2 can be easily transferred by oral sex. Chlamydia can also be transferred by oral sex. This can cause infections and immense discomfort in your throat. STDs can be prevented by wearing a condom or using a dental dam during oral sex.

3. Contaminated foods: You can also develop STD like Hepatitis A from food which is contaminated. If a person infected with an STD prepares your meal without washing his or her hand after using the restroom, it can easily contaminate your meal thus, transmitting the disease.

4. Touching bases: Skin to skin contact or indirect contact with a person who already has an STD can make you prone to contracting STDs. It can be caused by using an unwashed sex toy with an infected person and also with hand to genital contact.

5. Tanning salons: STDs can be easily spread from person to person by means of a tanning bed. If the surface of the tanning bed is contaminated by someone who has STDs, the risk of developing an STD increases for the next person who ends up using the same bed.

6. Razors and syringes: Sharing a razor or anything which pierces or cuts the skin is an easy and common cause behind contracting an STD. If the razor cuts the skin of an infected person and is contaminated with blood, the next person using that razor can develop STD due to blood contact. The same may be said of a syringe where users share them. Many people, especially drug users shared common syringes which resulted in large scale transmission of HIV.
