Let us assume that your cycles are for 5 days. The time period during which you can get pregnant starts 7 days after your last day of menstruation and continues for 5 days. However, it is important to practice safe sex with the use of condoms in order to prevent yourself from the harmful side effects of frequent intake of contraceptive pills. also contraceptive pills are only 80% successful. Feel free to connect with me if you would like to know about safe sexual practices

No. You need to do urine pregnancy test. It should be done 10 days after missing your period. For example if your date was 10th, then do the test on 20th. Before that it can give false negative or false positive test. For low bp-- eat a diet higher in salt.Drink lots of nonalcoholic fluids. Limit alcoholic beverages. Drink more fluids during hot weather and while sick with a viral illness, such as a cold or the flu. Have your doctor evaluate your prescription and over-the-counter medications to see if any of them are causing your symptoms. Get regular exercise to promote blood flow. Be careful when rising from lying down or sitting. To help improve circulation, pump your feet and ankles a few times before standing up. Then proceed slowly. When getting out of bed, sit upright on the edge of the bed for a few minutes before standing. Elevate the head of your bed at night by placing bricks or blocks under the head of bed. Avoid heavy lifting. Avoid straining while on the toilet. Avoid standing still in place for long periods of time. Avoid prolonged exposure to hot water, such as hot showers and spas. If you get dizzy, sit down. It may be helpful to keep a chair or stool in the shower in case you need to sit; to help prevent injury, use a nonslip chair or stool designed for use in showers and bath tubs. To avoid problems with low blood pressure and lessen episodes of dizziness after meals, try eating smaller, more frequent meals. Cut back on carbohydrates. Rest after eating. Avoid taking drugs to lower blood pressure before meals. If needed, use elastic support (compression) stockings that cover the calf and thigh. These may help restrict blood flow to the legs, thus keeping more blood in the upper body.

Hi, I am an unmarried girl of age 24y. I am having a problem of low menstrual flow. Although my menses occur on time but the flow is lower than the normal. This is causing an increase in my secondary sexual character (increased weight of breast and hips). Please prescribe any homeopathic treatment along with dietary precautions.

No, your periods are delayed because of pcos pcod/pcos is a common hormonal disorder in women which can lead to weight gain and irregular periods. While most women depend on pills to deal with it, these simple changes in your lifestyle will help you deal with the condition in a better way. 1. Nutritional approach: deficiency of micronutrients contributes to insulin insensitivity and compromise ovarian function. So, •completely stay away from processed/ refined cereals (which have a high glycemic index or gi). Switch to wheat, rice, jowar, ragi, barley (which have low gi) and enjoy your roti, parantha, pulao, biryani, dosa, poha, upma etc. •eat an adequate amount of lean proteins like dal, milk, eggs, fish, yogurt, cheese, paneer, lassi, sprouted legumes. •include good sources of omega-3 and omega-6 present in nuts, seeds, ghee, olives, coconut etc. Our body needs essential fatty acids for absorption of fat soluble vitamins like a, d, and e. •alpha-lipoic acid improves glucose uptake in cells, promotes weight loss and improves the health of ovaries. It is found in flaxseeds, walnuts, spinach, broccoli, peas, brussels sprouts etc. •micronutrients like selenium, zinc, chromium, magnesium, niacin, and riboflavin improve sugar control and promote hormonal balance. These can be obtained from a variety of whole grains, nuts, green leaves, fresh fruits and veggies, egg, seafood etc. •vitamin b12 is essential to support the function of ovaries. So include dairy (especially curd, paneer), eggs, seafood, and sprouted/fermented items. •calcium in abundant supply helps to overcome premenstrual cramps. •include supplements of above-mentioned nutrients as diet may not provide enough because their requirement is above normal. •most importantly, eat local, seasonal, freshly prepared food items, stay away from food items that have long ingredient lists as they are 'processed' and have a number of additives (preservatives, artificial colors, flavor enhancers et al). 2. Exercise strategies: regular workouts are non-negotiable. They are essential to burn off fat stores for hormonal balance and regular ovulation. A minimum of 150 minutes a week is recommended. Divide your time between strength training, cardio exercises and yoga for optimal results. Just like a diet, your exercise must be balanced too. 3. Sleep: adequate sleep is non-negotiable too. Sleeping at a more or less fixed time every day and for an adequate number of hours is a prerequisite to keep hormones in sync. 4. De-stress yourself: love yourself more than anyone else, prioritize your health, learn to say no, take time out to exercise and relax. Pursue your favorite activities, learn a new skill, and never ignore your body signals. For more details you can consult me.

Hello, I am a 29 year old female. I take glycomet and glador 1 for diabetes, thyronorm 125 for thyroid, yasmin for pcod and dilzem cd 120 for my supraventricular tachycardia. Recently I did a blood test. My sugar level is under control. My thyroid is 9.02. But my hemoglobin is 7. I was wondering if the medicines I take can lead to anemia or is the cause something different?

Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the details given and understand your concern. Low hemoglobin is unlikely to occur because drugs being taken. It is mostly related to loss of blood during menstruation and improper nutrition. With tsh at 9.02 mu/l, your hypothyroidism is not in control. Ideally tsh should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, when all the symptoms are in check. You have mentioned that" my sugar level is in check" but no actual numbers are given, so difficult to comment. For controlling anemia or improving hemoglobin, there is a need to take appropriate iron, folic acid and b12 combination for over 6 months. If hemoglobing goes further down then you may need infusion of packed cells (rbcs). There are no details of weight and height also. Thanks.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Semen do not pass through clothes to make pregnancy. Sex during periods does not cause pregnancy. Usually precum do not contain any sperm cells. Period means disintegration of the uterus membrane which is meant to be for the child. Swallowing male sperm cannot cause pregnancy. If you have taken unwanted 72 within 72 hours of intercourse, the chances of pregnancy is low. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Talk to a gynecologist for advice. Take care.

Hi sir, my question is that is it safe having sex with my partner during period time if I use condom for protection?

The risk for getting pregnant during menstruation is low, but it is not impossible. According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, most women experience a 28-day menstrual cycle. This cycle lasts from the first day of menstrual bleeding to the day before bleeding begins the following month. Use condom for protection.

Don’t worry this is very natural. A lot of changes occur after marriage. New place, new people. Emotionally also it takes time to get adjusted. Keep yourself busy. Do some activity like exercise, yoga, walking, meditation etc. Tslk to good friends Try to relax, read good books. In whatever way you feel relaxed, do that activity. Never sleeps in day time. Have a glasss of warm milk before sleeping.
