If your partners semen test is normal, try for pregnancy during the most fertile period which is about 7 days in the middle of a normal cycle. If the period is delayed, the most fertile period is correspondingly set back by that many days. Follicular study by serial ultrasound can more exactly pinpoint the most fertile period.

I-Pills are not 100% effective. So there is always a small possibility of failure. I would advice her to do a urine pregnancy test just in case she misses her periods next month.

Facts About Swollen Clitoris

Facts About Swollen Clitoris

When a person is aroused there are a host of hormonal changes within the person's body. These changes do manifest on the surface in the form of certain physical variations. Sexual stimulation happens to alter the state of human genitalia and that too in obvious ways. The blood flow to the concerned area increases, there is enough of natural lubrication in and around the organ and for women, the vagina loosens up and the clitoris swells. Intercourse followed by a climactic release will make the clitoris regain its original size. However, worries crop up when that is not the case with every single female. This serious medical condition of a swollen clitoris should never be overlooked; it must be treated by seeking experienced medical assistance.  

  1. Trauma: Any slight scratch or one wrong touch can cause a swollen clitoris. Even a scratch of your fingernail while you are masturbating or a rough sexual intercourse can and is enough to create trauma in your clitoris.
  2. Hair: Hair grows normally around your genital area. It is very common for a woman to have pubic hair. But sometimes small hair splinters lead to trouble and hair gets stuck into your clitoris and causes swelling. This is a very annoying process, sometimes you may have to use a magnifying glass to remove the hair from your clitoris.
  3. Clothing: Sometimes your tight clothes can result in a swollen clitoris. The friction from your rough clothing material can cause your clitoris to swell. Sometimes you may be using a detergent that is not suitable for you or you may be wearing a dress material, which you're allergic to. You should always wash your clothes in plain water and dry it before using.
  4. Infection: You may also have some bacterial and fungal infection in your clitoris, which can cause a swollen clitoris. This infection can also invite itchiness and redness and these can make it even worse. If it doesn't subside within some days then you should definitely see a doctor.
  5. Cysts: Small cysts known as Bartholomew's cysts can grow on the clitoris. This thing hampers the natural lubrication of the body.  If you are having clitoris swelling because of cysts then you should seek medical attention immediately.

Your clitoris is naturally sensitive and if you are having a swollen clitoris after intercourse then you should pull back from sexual intercourse for a few days. At times the swelling goes away on its own. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

You basically seem to be worried because she has missed her scheduled period. This is common with emergency contraceptive pills like i-pill. So do not panic. Do a urine pregnancy test. If it's negative then you need not worry and just wait for the periods to start on their own. If the test comes positive she is most probably pregnant, in that case you need to consult a gynecologist without delay if you both do not wish to continue the pregnancy.

Hello- these type of symptoms occur in females either due to fear of pain or due to lack of urge for sex. 1) try to focus on your wife's health and improve her health by using nutritious product in living. 2) increase the amount of dairy products in her meals. 3) drink shatavari powder with milk daily. 4) enhance your bedroom with sexual toys and porn films. 5) try to talk to your partner regarding her issue.

1. Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21 to 36 days.

2. Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two days after ovulation and five days before ovulation.

3. Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4. Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5. Myth: Men with a higher sexual drive will have a normal sperm count.
Fact: There is no relation in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex drive do not produce sperms.

6. Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7. Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8. Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

9. Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12 to 16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

10. Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.

If you had sex just after her periods then chances of pregnancy is less. Wait for her periods for another 4-5 days. Most likely she ll have her periods. If not then do urine pregnancy test after 5 days.

Hi a single cyst usually doesnt create any problem. However do you have any problem in your menses? also get yourself evaluated for pcod by undergoing a hormonal test and a sonography. So long as these reports are normal, you wont face any problem during pregnancy.

I am asking this question for one of my friend. She is around 50 years and going through menopause. For the last nearly one year she is not able to enjoy the sex. She says though she enjoy the foreplay, she never gets the orgasm. This was not the case 2-3 years back. I would like to know what could be the reason? is there any way she can get orgasm?

MBBS; M.S.
Gynaecologist, Sri Ganganagar
There must be more foreplay specially clitorial. Use some lubricants like k y jelly. Partner should pay more attention to her specially during intercourse. He may prolong the process by doing some withdrawal of penis during intercourse.

Almost 100% protection can be achieved with condoms if it fits well and is used from beginning to end. It does not have any side effects on either partner. Moreover it also protects against infections which might affect fertility in the future.
