I am 46 years old working suffering from thyroid and PCOD. Except thyroxine 50 mg. I am taking any kind of medicine. Please advise if I should start taking AMway's nutrilite daily or woman revital. Which one is better?
What are some essential lab tests that should be done to detect PCOD & other ovaries related diseases?
I had sex with my girlfriend without using condom but I did not let my sperm get into her body but she is not getting in periods since last 2 months and we also checked the pregnancy tester several times but its showing the negative results so now what is the problem?
I recently got married and sometimes my partner and I have unintentional unprotected sex and since I do want to get pregnant as of now I take emergency contraception pill. But now its 4th time I notice that I get a huge boil after every pill I intake on my body. Please suggest method of contraception incase we have unprotected sex in future or maybe a situation we cannot avoid and go under emotions. Looking forward for a reply. Thank you.
My real period date was on 11 th April and got over on 15th April. But after taking ipill I got my withdrawal bleeding again on 26th April which ended on 3rd may Nd last for 8 days. So when I am supposed to get my next period as my cycle is disturbed? On 26th may?
IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a procedure where the fertilization of the egg by a sperm occurs outside the human body. “In vitro” means “in glass”. Conducted under laboratory conditions, the ovum or ova are removed from the woman’s ovaries and the sperm is allowed to fertilize them. The fertilized egg or zygote is then allowed to grow in a culture of amniotic fluids for almost a week. This fertilized egg at its embryonic stage is introduced into the uterus in order to trigger a pregnancy.
IVF as a fertility treatment may be prescribed on the basis of various factors such male or female infertility, genetic disorder, or disorders with ovulation. So an IVF treatment may or may not include a surrogate. It makes good sense to know as much as you possibly can before you undergo any treatment.
Here are 4 lesser known facts about IVF-
1. IVF pregnancies too can become ectopic
An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg gets implanted on the outside of the uterus. This usually happens somewhere in the fallopian tubes, though the egg might implant itself elsewhere as well. Given that in an IVF the embryo is directly transferred into the uterus, it is safe to assume that ectopic pregnancies can be confidently avoided. But, the contractions in the uterine walls after the transfer may cause the embryo to shift elsewhere.
2. Acupuncture increases success
Research shows that acupuncture therapy before or during or after a cycle of IVF can increase the rate of success of the procedure. There are special therapies of acupuncture designed specifically to enhance the success of implantation.
3. Twins are more likely
A multiple embryo transfer enhances the chances of a successful pregnancy. But it also increases the chances that the pregnancy would lead to the birth of twins. Fraternal or identical twins born out of an IVF pregnancy are very common. In fact the likelihood of identical twins is especially high.
4. Healthy lifestyle will lead to better IVF cycles
A well-balanced diet with the all the essential nutrients and vitamins is absolutely necessary for a smooth IVF cycle. Lots of water and fluids along with regular sleeping habits are also important. You need to make sure that you get a good night’s sleep on an every day basis. A minimum of 7-9 hours of sleep every night will increase the rate of success of the treatment.
If you are undergoing treatments for fertility, perhaps these lesser known facts will help you.
