First of all I do not suggest to abort 1st pregnancy anytime However owing to the circumstances you need to wait for at least 3-5 days for the product of conception to be clear.

Is it safe to have sex during the 5th day of periods or is there any chances of pregnancy? And my next question is sir can presemen can lead to pregnancy?

MSc-Psychology, MHSc-Reproductive and Sexual Medicine, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sexologist, Hyderabad
The first day of bleeding if you take as day one--then having sex onthe 5 th day -no chance of pregnancy. Small amount of sticky fluid that comes at excitement, before entering the vagina--usually called pre cum-- can not produce pregnancy. But very very rarely it can have spermatozoa and can lead to pregnancy. It is so rare, that you can ignore.

My girlfriend telling me that she had pain in her breast today. Tell me answer please .

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Breast pain or mastalgia is a common complaint in women of reproductive age group. That is the childbearing age group. Due to effects of estrogen and progesterone, breasts become heavy and tender. Which can be perceived as pain. But this pain is usually just before the periods. Otherwise breast pain can be a symptom of lumps in breast. These lumps can cause dragging pain. These lumps could be non cancerous or cancerous. In this age group, 9 out of 10 lumps are benign that is non cancerous. A thorough history and a detailed physical examination is pivotal and usually conclusive. If required a sonohraphy breast could be done. Although very rare breast pain due to a cancer in breadt is still possible for this early age group. Keeping all this in mind, seeing a breast consultant appears the best choice and then after age of 20 start a monthly breast self exam.

Sometimes subclinical hypothyroidism during pregnancy causes a little high level of TSH which needs to be treated to avoid problems. This is safe for your baby

Hello, Pregnancy is not dependent on sexual performance. How good you are in bed if lacking proper conditions (like healthy semen and sound female genital system) you can't get pregnant.

Dear Lybrate user. Delayed ejaculation (DE) is a common medical condition. Also called “impaired ejaculation,” this condition occurs when it takes a prolonged period of sexual stimulation for a man to ejaculate. Delayed ejaculation can result from certain chronic health conditions, surgeries and medications. Or it may be caused by substance abuse or a mental health concern, such as depression, anxiety or stress. In many cases, delayed ejaculation is due to a combination of physical and psychological concerns. Therefore you need to consult an urologist for diagnosis of the cause. Take care.

Side Effects of Different Contraceptive Methods

Side Effects of Different Contraceptive Methods

Use of contraceptives is really important to avoid unwanted pregnancy. Countries like China and India, facing the problem of population explosion lay more stress on the use of contraceptives. However, you must always use or take oral and barrier contraceptives following the advice of a medical practitioner unless it is absolutely necessary to go ahead without consultation. The reason behind medical assistance is your own health. Contraceptive methods do have a vast range of side effects that can result in health hazards. There are various kinds of contraceptives; each having its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Being acquainted with the side effects of some contraceptive methods can help you choose wisely in times of need.

  • Possible side-effects of using condoms: Some men are allergic to latex. Using condoms can lead to heightened sensitivity. It can also lead to rashes in your genitals. Condoms are not foolproof. They do not provide total protection against sexually transmitted infections, HPV or against Syphilis and Herpes. These diseases can be contracted by coming in contact with genital skin that is not covered by a condom.
  • Possible side-effects of a Contraceptive Film: A contraceptive film might act as an interruption in your sexual activities if it is not placed properly, that is to say it must come in contact with the cervix to be effective. Using the film nonoxynol- very frequently can make you susceptible to life threatening diseases like HIV and other STIs.
  • Possible side-effects of a Cervical Cap: A cervical cap has to be inserted by a clinician and requires immense care to be fitted in later. Some of its side - effects can be of serious concern. If it is left inside for more than forty eight hours, it can result in toxic shock syndrome. Toxic shock syndrome is an infection that mars your overall health. It is also known to increase the chances of inflammation of the surface of your cervix.
  • Possible side-effects of Progestin only pills: Progestin only pills or mini pills can subject you to long- lasting depression. It can make you feel bloated and can actually increase your weight to a great extent if used on a regular basis. Minipills lead to irregularities in your menstrual cycle and might also make bleeding during menstruation scanty.
  • Possible side-effects of combined oral contraceptives: If this is your first month on combined oral contraceptives, you might feel nauseous and they can give you a terrible headache. Women taking these pills have a higher chance of developing cervical dysplasia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

lybrate-user you need to get admitted in a hospital that deals with high risk pregnancy case s. To control sugars one can adjust doses of plain insulin as per the blood sugar levels addition of long acting insulin also may be require. It goes without saying that you need a good diet chart. The hosp needs to have good nursery back up too in case delivery has to be done earlier.

Doctor, I had taken Ipill on 3rd may (which was the 14th day of my cycle). I have not experienced any spotting or bleeding till now. My next due date is 20th May. I have been having low backache since a week or so, light headache, creamy discharge and also a weight gain of 400 gms after Friday last week. Does these signs indicate any risk? I am a bit worried.

Hello lybrate-user, thank you for your question. Taking the ipill is associated with the side effects you mention. These include abdominal pain, unscheduled bleeding, bloating, period like discomfort, early or late periods and also of course a pregnancy. If you took the ipill within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse you are 95% sure to avoid a pregnancy. Any later and the success rate also reduces. I would suggest that you wait for your period to come. If it is delayed by over 7 days to do a pregnancy test. Your symptoms suggest that your period may be on its way. I would also suggest that you see your local gynaecologist to discuss other reliable methods of contraception if you will be having sex regularly. Ipill is an emergency contraceptive and should only be used for emergencies when your regular contraceptive fails. Your gynaecologist can help discuss what is best for you.

All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements
According to Ayurveda Science , All the non living and living things are made up of five great elements i.e. Space, Air, Fire, Water, & Earth.
All these five great elements are present in living organism in the form of three biological humours called Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
Vata is a Combination of Air & Space. Pitta is combined with Fire And, Kapha is a Combination of Water & Earth.

In Ayurveda Vata(वात) Pitta(पित्त) & Kapha(कफ) are termed as Tridosha(त्रिदोष).

Tridosha are the forces which govern the body's all physical and psychological activities. If all these dosha are in balanced state, an individual is said to be healthy But due to any reason if any of these dosha gets vitiated or imbalanced, one gets suffered from Disease.

while dealing any patient, an Ayuvedic physician try to make his diagnosis by analysing the levels of Vata, Pitta, & Kapha in the body.
Bringing Back the imbalanced Dosha status in to Balanced Status is the main goal to be achieved by Providing proper diet lifestyle and Ayuvedic Home remedies or Herbal combinations.

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne. Weight gain and trouble losing weight. Extra hair on the face and body. Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp. Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding. Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do. Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods. Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5 kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

Decreasing Fatigue Now that your body has had a trimester to adjust to pregnancy, you may be starting to feel a little less tired these days. Consider channeling your newfound energy into your workout routine — but don’t overdo it! Read more Breast Tenderness & Changes The aches you’re feeling are largely due to estrogen, progesterone and the increased fat and blood flow to your breasts. Pick bras with plenty of support to ease your discomfort. Read more Food Cravings & Aversions If you still have a yen for weird foods, don’t be too hard on yourself. Do your best to find healthy foods that appeal to you and give yourself permission to indulge in small portions of the junk foods you crave. Read more Heartburn & Indigestion During pregnancy, the muscle at the top of the stomach relaxes, allowing digestive acids to rise up into the esophagus — causing a burning in the chest. Reduce the pain by staying away from these heartburn triggers: alcohol, caffeinated drinks, chocolate, mint, citrus and spicy or fatty foods. Read more Constipation Your bowel muscles also relax during pregnancy (due to hormones), which means your bowels will be less efficient at moving waste out of your system. If you find yourself backed up, slowly start adding more high-fiber foods to your diet (fruits, vegetables and whole grains are good picks).
