I had unprotected sex, the very next day my periods ended. After fifteen days, I am experiencing pain in the lower abdomen in intervals plus my breasts are sore. There is white discharge every other day and I am also feeling pukish sometimes after eating meals. My cycle is regular and the date is constant every month. My last period started on 25th of jan and ended on 28th of jan. I had unprotected sex on the 29th. I took a pregnancy test two days ago and it was negative. Kindly tell me if i'm pregnant.

Pregnancy symptoms do not appear so fast. It’s only after you miss your periods. Also urine pregnancy test is done 10 days after missing your periods. For example if your date was 10th, then do the test on 20th. Before that it can give false negative or false positive test.

How Can Pregnant Women Prevent UTI?

How Can Pregnant Women Prevent UTI?

For women, taking care of their health should be top priority, but especially so if one is expecting. Urinary tract infections (UTI) are more common in women and usually occur in the bladder or urethra. And with the rigours of pregnancy, would you avoid one if you could? Surely!

A UTI can be caused by sex, in a lot of cases. This is because there is a transfer of the bacteria, which has the potential to enter the urethra and cause a lot of damage to the bladder and possibly, even the kidneys.

The good news is that as long as a UTI is detected immediately after getting the infection, it can be easily treated. However, not treating this in time can lead to serious complications.

That being said, it is widely known that prevention is better than cure and the adage is just as true when it comes to infections such as these. There are quite a few steps which can be taken to reduce the risk of a pregnant mother falling ill due to a UTI.

How can pregnant women prevent UTI?
The first is to urinate frequently. This is because if the urination of the pregnant woman is not frequent, chances of the festering the bacteria are more. One should try to cut out caffeine and chocolate to as great an extent as possible in one’s diet. If she is able to do this, the amount of irritation to the bladder caused will reduce greatly and this reduces the risk of contracting a UTI.

Another thing which could be done from a dietary point of view is to drink cranberry juice on a daily basis. This is because cranberries have the ability to reduce the amount of E. coli, which is a form of bacteria sticking around the bladder. However, before this is done, it is better to consult a doctor to make sure that the consumption of cranberry in any form does not clash with any medication.

Urination before and after sex is also a good practice as is having a low dosage of antibiotics which are prescribed by the doctor in case of recurrence of the UTIs. 

Apart from all these steps, the woman should not forget to make sure she stays well hydrated at all times, as this is not only good for the prevention of UTIs, but also for making sure the body functions well.

Yes, there is risk. Although it can be delayed because of stress. U need to do pregnancy test. If you want to do it now then go for bea hcg blood test. But if you can wait for a week then you can do urine pregnancy test at home.

Well x-ray is avoided in pregnancy. Paracetamol is safe in pregnancy . That u can take relieve pain to some extent. If extraction is urgently required, then should be done without an x-ray.

Pregnant - How Much Travel Is Permissible?

Pregnant - How Much Travel Is Permissible?

Travelling during pregnancy - Is it safe?
Pregnancy places some restrictions on the expectant mother, and one of them is limiting travel so much so that most women do only the required and essential commutes and skip any other travel, including vacations and business travel, completely until delivery. However, with the lifestyle changing for the woman so radically, this is being revisited. The doctor’s current advice is that unless there are potential complications expected or significant concerns, it is completely safe to travel.

The first trimester especially is a little tricky for travel, with the morning sickness. The second trimester is considered more ideal for travel, as the morning sickness and the feeling of being pregnant is sunk in, so the mother is comfortable. The third trimester is fine too, but the chances of fatigue are higher, and so travel is better avoided.

Read on to know some significant things to remember whether you are on a plane, train, or road during your pregnancy.
Car:

  1. Always buckle yourself up as soon as you enter the car. Use both the seat belt and the lap belt.
  2. Keep the air bags turned on.
  3. Try to avoid travel time of four hours at a stretch.
  4. When stopping for breaks, try to walk around a bit and stretch so that you do not feel the strain of sitting for long hours.

Plane:

  1. Most airlines allow women to travel during the first eight months of pregnancy.
  2. Some airlines do allow for travel during the ninth month, if the doctor approves it, or if there is an attendant with the expectant woman.
  3. It is okay to walk through airport screening during pregnancy. There are some women who are apprehensive about this aspect.
  4. Similarly the cabin pressure in the commercial planes reduces, but does not bear any significant impact for a pregnant woman.
  5. Select an aisle seat, as it allows for easy seating and getting up.
  6. Walking to the restroom and back should be carefully managed. The aisle is quite narrow and care must be taken to avoid hurting yourself.
  7. Use the seats for providing support when walking through the aisle.
  8. Especially, in turbulent stretches, try remaining seated, bearing in mind the safety aspects for yourself and the baby.

Other modes:

  1. Traveling by bus is safe, but trips to the restroom would be difficult.
  2. Trains are generally considered safer, as there is a lot of room for movement. Restrooms are available anytime, which is another major advantage.
  3. Sea travel is also considered safe, but sea sickness could add to the nausea.
  4. For long-term sailing, check with the cruise provider or the boat facility about availability of a healthcare provider on the ship.
