Dear lybrate-user The medicine given to you is absolutely fine. It takes 2-3 days to get an effect of the medicine. There should not be FRESH bleeding. Old / Brownish blood or clots are expected as there remain collected blood in vagina which keep dissolving and coming out for few days. I would suggest that infection screen should also be conducted same time. Wish you luck.

Hi, I am going in a for a hysterectomy and would like advice on how to recover quickly.

Diploma in Advanced Gynaec Laparoscopic Surgery, Fellowship in Laparoscopic and Robotic Onco-Surgery, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Zirakpur
My suggestion is if given an option for hysterectomy go to an experienced gynaecologic surgeon. You should opt for Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. Second option should be vaginal hysterectomy and last should be abdominal. Arrangements for quicker recovery: Before you leave for hospital, for the surgery •Make sure that you have informed your absence at a particular place (e.g. Workplace, family etc) for specific time period. •If you have got an insurance then you need to complete your paperwork for claiming benefits of surgery from the same. •You should stop taking all medicines / diets which has got tendency to thin the blood e.g. Vitamins, natural supplements, any analgesics that may contain aspirin (salicylic acid) or any blood thinner medicines. This might increase chances of blood loss during surgery. Usually your surgeon makes notice of all these issues but, if missed by any chance, then you need to inform your surgeon about these. •You need to arrange someone who can accompany you on the day of the surgery and can help during your stay at hospital. This person must be someone with whom you are comfortable because he/she may have to help you go to the bathroom, get dressed, etc. •Arrangements of meals should be made beforehand, at your home. You can buy or prepare several meals ahead of time since after surgery you will feel weak and will not have the energy to cook. •You should do your house cleaning and laundry beforehand. •You should select comfortable clothing for your convalescence. •You should select underclothing made up of cotton or satin as these textures will be less irritating to the wound and will allow you to slip out of bed more easily. •You should prepare the part of the house where you will recuperate after surgery during the first few days. You can arrange clean sheets, pillows, heating pad, analgesics, reading material, remote control, telephone, etc at your selected place so that you can manage things easily. •You can buy some good magazines, arrange few movies so that you can keep yourself occupied during your convalescence. What to pack Mostly the hospitals provide almost every required consumable. Still you should prepare your hospital bag and should go over its contents with the person who will be accompanying you so that he/she knows what you packed and where you placed the items. Make sure to pack the following: Health insurance and hospital cards Sanitary napkins Mobile charger and earphones Reading material Lip balm Lozenges Absorbent disposable tissue paper Pillow. Pre-operative appointment with Surgeon •You should ask all your doubts regarding the laparoscopic surgical procedure e.g. What will be done in surgery? What all I shall expect after surgery? What kind of anaesthesia I shall be receiving? •You should understand the instructions given to you by your surgeon e.g. When to reach hospital? Where to reach in the hospital? When to stop eating? Etc. •You should ask your surgeon whether he /she will be providing video recording / intra-operative pictures of your laparoscopic surgery. The day before surgery •You should not wear any makeup, hairspray, body lotion or deodorant. •You should remove nail polish, jewellery and contact lenses. •You should wear loose clothing such a dress without any elastic at the waist. •You should wear an undergarment so that no fabric rubs against your navel after the procedure. Also, make sure your panties are loose /comfortable or a size larger than you usually wear as they will be more comfortable if your abdomen is swollen. •You should wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off since it is uncomfortable while bending, after the procedure. •When you arrive at the hospital, try to relax. Listening to soothing music / watching movie will help. After the surgery •Once you are getting discharged from the hospital you should arrange a transport vehicle which has minimum tendency to give bumps when on road. In the vehicle, recline the seat and place a pillow against your tummy to absorb the shock of bumps in the road. •Once at home you should avoid sleeping in day time. You should can keep yourself occupied with reading magazine / watching movies / listening to music etc. It is advisable to have a sound sleep in the night. •Your abdominal muscles are expected to be discomforting for the first few days. You should take medicines as advised. •Hold a pillow against your stomach if you sneeze or cough to lessen the pain. •Your shoulders might hurt the first few days. You should sit in a reclining position and place a heating pad on your shoulders. When you feel better, walk a little around the house. •To get out of bed, roll onto your side and then gradually sit up using your arms for support. After sitting wait for a while and watch for any giddiness. Giddiness is expected for a short while and should vanish in few minutes. Once you are stable then slip your feet out of bed and then stand up. Again, wait for a while and watch for any giddiness. Once you are perfectly fine then you should start walking. •Feeling nauseous is common due to anesthetic medicines given during surgery or the medicines you might be receiving. To combat nausea, you can try few measures: rub a pad moistened with rubbing alcohol under your nose, lie down, breathe through the mouth, suck on a mint candy, eat dry crackers or drink ginger ale. •Diet should be gradually upgraded. You should start with liquids, initially, and slowly moving up to solid food. The anaesthesia and analgesics can cause severe constipation after surgery. High fiber foods are recommended to prevent constipation (e.g pears, prunes, asparagus, carrots, whole-wheat bread etc). •You should drink at least 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day. Water intake helps in preventing constipation and helps in eliminating traces of the anaesthesia. •After the laparoscopic surgery wearing tampons is avoided. As wearing tampon might obscure the significant bleeding. •After the laparoscopic surgery intercourse / sexual activity is prohibited till the surgeon recommends. •You may shower 24 hours after the surgery. Try to avoid contact of water with the stitches as this might delay healing of stitches. •After few days of surgery, you can apply vitamin E to the incision if the scar looks normal (and there are no signs of infection). Vitamin E promotes healing. •During recovery if you develop a fever, have difficulty urinating or experience heavy bleeding, contact your surgeon immediately or go to the hospital. •When you return to work, wear loose clothing and avoid wearing synthetic undergarments, which will irritate your navel. •It usually takes about a week to recover from a laparoscopy, a common and minimally invasive procedure. The secret to a speedy recovery is to take the necessary time and means to regain your energy.

Dear lybrate-user Since you have got married and not able to conceive since 2015 make sense for evaluation for causes of infertility. This includes a group of investigations which are decided after thorough clinical examination and history briefing. Fibroid in uterus "4 mm" is not at all significant cause for infertility. "Uterus going down" connotes that you might be suffering from uterovaginal prolapse. If that is the case the you need to get examined by your gynaecologist and let the concerned decide treatment according to the grading of prolapse. There are options available in the form of exercises, support pessaries, surgery. The surgery can be conducted laparoscopically for your problem.

Hi lybrate-user Preganews tests are pretty much accurate for confirming pregnancy event at the earliest. But the subjective confirmation is found only on ultrasonography. I suggest you should go for ultrasound. There are few advantages of getting ultrasound done: 1) confirmation of pregnancy 2) confirmation of pregnancy INSIDE uterus (chances of pregnancy in tubes need to be ruled out in any case) 3) As in your case, prolonged cycles, we need to confirm the gestational age as the earliest ultrasound parameters of the baby decides the baseline for future reference. 4) Any congenitally abnormal development of baby can be diagnosed as earliest as possible. It is a standard protocol in OBGYN practices that the ultrasound be conducted as soon pregnancy is diagnosed.

Dear lybrate-user I suggest you should get 1) urine pregnancy test done 2) Get one ultrasound done 3) start some antispasmodic tablets which are available over the counter with any chemist shop. Hope you will resume periods are bleeding is there after 3 months and I expect there no chance of pregnancy. Ultrasound will let us know for any anatomical abnormality with our genital system. Hope this approach is useful for you.

Dear lybrate-user This case history of yours show that recurrent miscarriages in your case need evaluation. There are numerous factors which are responsible for such events. They need a proper investigation and treatment. I would suggest "do not go by internet info" about baby aspirin and other things. Investigations and treatment are always customized according to the cause found. All miscarriages are not treated with the same treatment methodology. I suggest you consult a gynaecologist experienced in recurrent miscarriages. Hope this helps you.

Dear lybrate-user "Endometriosis" is confirmed whenever we subject any tissue sample for histopathological examination. I hope that has been done & endometriosis is a confirmed diagnosis. I doubt that "endometriosis" is existing INSIDE uterus. There is some sort of mis-interpretation of the facts. We can go ahead with the treatment despite having endometriosis (even after twice operated ). But the treatment is governed by the problem you are facing. It can be 1) Trying for conception 2) Painful periods 3) Pain all the time 4) Painful defecation.

What are the advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery?

Gynaecologist, Zirakpur
What are the advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery?

Now these days Laparoscopic surgery is commonly performed. Traditional surgeries / open abdominal surgeries are decreasing in number due to few inherent advantages of laparoscopic surgery over traditional / open abdominal surgeries:

  • Smaller incisions: During open abdominal surgery, the usual length of incisions vary from 3 cm upto 18 cm, depending on the indication of surgery. Incisions given for laparoscopic surgery are small (usually 0.5 cm – 1.5cm).
  • Lesser pain: After surgery, in post-operative period pain is minimal due to small incision size.  
  • Early Recovery: Lesser pain after surgery fastens the recovery process and faster return to everyday living.  
  • Lesser Pain Medication: Reduced pain after surgery amount to lesser medication for pain after surgery.
  • Shorter hospital stays: Because of early ambulation and faster recovery average hospital stay remains 1 to 2 days for laparoscopic surgery (versus 5 to 7 days for open surgery).
  • Lesser wound infection and hernia formation: Smaller incisions decrease the risk of wound infection and chances of hernia formation.
  • Cosmetically acceptable: Smaller incisions result in less scarring and hence cosmetically acceptable scars.
  • Reduced chances of Infections: There is reduced exposure of internal organs to possible external contaminants which reduces the risk of acquiring infections.
  • Reduced hemorrhaging: The amount of blood loss is lesser during laparoscopic surgeries which reduces the chance of needing a blood transfusion.
  • Less metabolic derangements: Medical literature supports the fact that there are lesser metabolic derangements after laparoscopic surgery compared to open abdominal surgery.
  • Better postoperative pulmonary function: Pulmonary functions i.e. capacity to breath in and out is least affected after laparoscopic surgery which help in faster recovery from the procedure.

Tips for Preparing Yourself for Laparoscopic Surgery!

Being a female is an icon of responsibility in many perspectives. The female figure shares a huge responsibility in the family (husband, kids, other members), society, self, workplace etc. Hence it becomes necessary that a woman must understand what all arrangements she needs to make herself comfortable during days when she is going for laparoscopic surgery and after surgery.

Normally admission in the hospital is done one day before the surgery. During the day of surgery, you can be discharged if your clinical condition is fine. Usually it takes, on an average, 2-3 days of hospital stay. U need to make arrangements at home for 2-3 days when you are absenting from your respective responsibilities.

Before you leave for hospital, for the surgery  

  • Make sure that you have informed your absence at a particular place (e.g. workplace, family etc) for specific time period.
  • If you have got an insurance then you need to complete your paperwork for claiming benefits of surgery from the same.
  • You should stop taking all medicines / diets which has got tendency to thin the blood e.g. vitamins, natural supplements, any analgesics that may contain aspirin (salicylic acid) or any blood thinner medicines. This might increase chances of blood loss during surgery. Usually your surgeon makes notice of all these issues but, if missed by any chance, then you need to inform your surgeon about these.
  • You need to arrange someone who can accompany you on the day of the surgery and can help during your stay at hospital. This person must be someone with whom you are comfortable because he/she may have to help you go to the bathroom, get dressed, etc.

  • Health insurance and hospital cards
  • Sanitary napkins

What is Laparoscopic Surgery Exactly ?

What is Laparoscopic Surgery  Exactly ?

Word ‘Laparoscopy’ is derived from ancient greek language “lapara + skopeo” i.e. “λαπάρα + σκοπέω”.  Lapara means 'flank, side’ and skopeo means ‘to see'.

Hence laparoscopy’s literal meaning is “a procedure / operation performed in the abdomen or pelvis through which the abdominal contents are seen.”

To look inside tummy (abdomen) an instrument is used which is called a ‘laparoscope’. A laparoscope is a thin telescope with an attachment for light. It is used to light up and magnify the structures inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is passed into the abdomen through a small cut (incision) in the skin.

In addition to simply looking inside the abdomen (laparoscopy), surgery can be performed while seeing the abdominal organs with laparoscope. In this combination, the procedure is called as ‘Laparoscopic Surgery’. Generally, 0.5-1 cm incisions are used in laparoscopic surgery. Each incision is called a “port.”  At each port a tubular instrument is inserted known as a trocar. At the beginning of the procedure, the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to provide a working and viewing space for the surgeon. The laparoscope has an attachment with a camera and light which transmits images from the abdominal cavity to high-resolution video monitors in the operating room. During the operation, detailed images of the abdominal organs are displayed on the monitor and surgery is performed with using special laparoscopic instruments which are, also, passed into the abdomen through another trocar. This system allows the surgeon to perform the same operations as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions.

Laparoscopic surgery, in other words, is different way of performing surgery in which the surgical steps remain the same as open surgery, but it is performed with special instruments with small abdominal incisions. Now these days laparoscopic surgeries are performed with the use of sophisticated medical grade cameras, telescopes, laparoscopic surgical instruments and refined energy sources.

“Laparoscopic Surgery” is known with various names:

  • Keyhole surgery

  • Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)

  • Minimal Access Surgery (MAS)

  • Band-Aid surgery

  • Scar less Surgery

In certain situations, a surgeon may choose to use a special type of port that is large enough to insert a hand. When a hand port is used, the surgical technique is called “hand assisted” laparoscopy. The incision required for the hand port is larger than the other laparoscopic incisions, but is usually smaller than the incision required for traditional surgery.

What All Diseases in Gynaecology Can Be Treated with Laparoscopic Surgery?

What All Diseases in Gynaecology Can Be Treated with Laparoscopic Surgery?

With the advent of refined laparoscopic instruments, it is possible to treat numerous operable gynaecological conditions. With laparoscopic access, we can operate even more complicated cases like severe endometriosis endometriosis, cancers etc. The common diseases which can be treated with laparoscopic surgery are following :

  • Bleeding from Vagina: An abnormal form of bleeding from vagina is medically defined as “AUB / DUB (Abnormal / Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding)”. The bleeding problem which is not responding to medicinal treatment can be dealt with Laparoscopy. Abnormal / Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding is due to abnormality in endometrium of uterus which usually responds to medicinal treatment. In cases where medicine is not able to control the symptoms, uterus, along with both fallopian tubes +/- ovaries, can be removed laparoscopically. In another treatment modality, the endometrium (inside lining of uterine cavity) can be ablated to reduce the troublesome bleeding. Latter procedure is done hysteroscopically.
  • Fibroid Uterus: Fibroids are commonly found in uterus. Most of the time they are diagnosed on ultrasound ultrasound. Fibroids can cause problem in the form of abnormal bleeding (heavy menstrual flow, irregular menstrual bleeding pattern), painful periods (dysmenorrhea), recurrent miscarriage miscarriage / abortion abortion, infertility infertility etc. Uterine fibroids usually need surgical removal and can be removed laparoscopically as well as hysteroscopically. Any size of the fibroid can be removed with laparoscopic approach.
  • Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian cysts are also common finding on ultrasound. Ovarian cysts which persist for longer times, suspicious of cancer cancer, symptomatic (e.g pain pain abdomen) can be removed laparoscopically.
  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis can present as ovarian endometrioma (Ovarian cyst or chocolate cyst), endometriosis implants implants in pelvis, Adhesions in pelvis (involving uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, intestinal loops, rectum etc) or as cause of infertility. All these entities can be treated laparoscopically.
  • Uterus Prolapse / Vault Prolapse / Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Uterus prolapse into vagina, vaginal vault prolapsing into vagina after hysterectomy hysterectomy can be treated with laparoscopic surgery.
  • Uterine cancer, Uterine cervix cancer: Cancers of uterus, uterine cervix, ovarian cancers after chemotherapy chemotherapy can be treated with laparoscopic surgery in which tumorous tissue can be removed with more precision. 
  • Ectopic pregnancy: Extra uterine pregnancy pregnancy e.g. pregnancy in fallopian tube (tubal pregnancy), pregnancy in ovaries (ovarian pregnancy), pregnancy in cervix (cervical pregnancy) can be treated with laparoscopic approach, as per the indications.
  • Ovarian Torsion: Due to numerous factors, ovarian tissue twists around its own axis which leads to compromise in its blood supply ultimately leading to infarction of ovarian tissue. Laparoscopically ovaries can be untwisted and fixed to prevent further twisting.
  • Recurrent Miscarriage with incompetent cervix: With the incompetent cervix, there are chances of recurrent miscarriage. Few cases of incompetent cervix need cerclage from abdomen which can be performed through laparoscopic approach.
  • Blocked fallopian tubes: Fallopian tubes might get blocked due to infections, adhesion or pressure from mass. In few cases, there is requirement of tubal reconstruction in cases of tubal sterilization. All these fallopian tube blocks can be opened with laparoscopic surgery and hysteroscopically.

What Are The Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery?

Now these days Laparoscopic surgery is commonly performed. Traditional surgeries / open abdominal surgeries are decreasing in number due to few inherent advantages of laparoscopic surgery over traditional / open abdominal surgeries:

  • Smaller incisions: During open abdominal surgery, the usual length of incisions vary from 3 cm upto 18 cm, depending on the indication of surgery. Incisions given for laparoscopic surgery are small (usually 0.5 cm – 1.5cm).
  • Lesser pain: After surgery, in post-operative period pain is minimal due to small incision size.  
  • Early Recovery: Lesser pain after surgery fastens the recovery process and faster return to everyday living.  
  • Lesser Pain Medication: Reduced pain after surgery amount to lesser medication for pain after surgery.
  • Shorter hospital stays: Because of early ambulation and faster recovery average hospital stay remains 1 to 2 days for laparoscopic surgery (versus 5 to 7 days for open surgery).
  • Lesser wound infection and hernia formation: Smaller incisions decrease the risk of wound infection and chances of hernia formation.
  • Cosmetically acceptable: Smaller incisions result in less scarring and hence cosmetically acceptable scars.
  • Reduced chances of Infections: There is reduced exposure of internal organs to possible external contaminants which reduces the risk of acquiring infections.
  • Reduced hemorrhaging: The amount of blood loss is lesser during laparoscopic surgeries which reduces the chance of needing a blood transfusion.
  • Less metabolic derangements: Medical literature supports the fact that there are lesser metabolic derangements after laparoscopic surgery compared to open abdominal surgery.
  • Better postoperative pulmonary function: Pulmonary functions i.e. capacity to breath in and out is least affected after laparoscopic surgery which help in faster recovery from the procedure.

What All Diseases in Gynaecology Can Be Treated With Laparoscopic Surgery?
  • Bleeding from Vagina: An abnormal form of bleeding from vagina is medically defined as “AUB / DUB (Abnormal / Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding)”. The bleeding problem which is not responding to medicinal treatment can be dealt with Laparoscopy. Abnormal / Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding is due to abnormality in endometrium of uterus which usually responds to medicinal treatment. In cases where medicine is not able to control the symptoms, uterus, along with both fallopian tubes +/- ovaries, can be removed laparoscopically. In another treatment modality, the endometrium (inside lining of uterine cavity) can be ablated to reduce the troublesome bleeding. Latter procedure is done hysteroscopically.
  • Fibroid Uterus: Fibroids are commonly found in uterus. Most of the time they are diagnosed on ultrasound. Fibroids can cause problem in the form of abnormal bleeding (heavy menstrual flow, irregular menstrual bleeding pattern), painful periods (dysmenorrhea), recurrent miscarriage / abortion, infertility etc. Uterine fibroids usually need surgical removal and can be removed laparoscopically as well as hysteroscopically. Any size of the fibroid can be removed with laparoscopic approach.
  • Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian cysts are also common finding on ultrasound. Ovarian cysts which persist for longer times, suspicious of cancer, symptomatic (e.g pain abdomen) can be removed laparoscopically.
  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis can present as ovarian endometrioma (Ovarian cyst or chocolate cyst), endometriosis implants in pelvis, Adhesions in pelvis (involving uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, intestinal loops, rectum etc) or as cause of infertility. All these entities can be treated laparoscopically.
  • Uterus Prolapse / Vault Prolapse / Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Uterus prolapse into vagina, vaginal vault prolapsing into vagina after hysterectomy can be treated with laparoscopic surgery.
  • Uterine cancer, Uterine cervix cancer: Cancers of uterus, uterine cervix, ovarian cancers after chemotherapy can be treated with laparoscopic surgery in which tumorous tissue can be removed with more precision. 
  • Ectopic pregnancy: Extra uterine pregnancy e.g. pregnancy in fallopian tube (tubal pregnancy), pregnancy in ovaries (ovarian pregnancy), pregnancy in cervix (cervical pregnancy) can be treated with laparoscopic approach, as per the indications.

What is Laparoscopic Surgery Exactly ?

What is Laparoscopic Surgery  Exactly ?

Word ‘Laparoscopy’ is derived from ancient greek language “lapara + skopeo” i.e. “λαπάρα + σκοπέω”.  

Lapara means 'flank, side’ and skopeo means ‘to see'. Hence laparoscopy’s literal meaning is “a procedure / operation performed in the abdomen or pelvis through which the abdominal contents are seen.”

To look inside tummy (abdomen) an instrument is used which is called a ‘laparoscope’. A laparoscope is a thin telescope with an attachment for light. It is used to light up and magnify the structures inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is passed into the abdomen through a small cut (incision) in the skin.

In addition to simply looking inside the abdomen (laparoscopy), surgery can be performed while seeing the abdominal organs with laparoscope. In this combination, the procedure is called as ‘Laparoscopic Surgery’. Generally, 0.5-1 cm incisions are used in laparoscopic surgery. Each incision is called a “port.”  At each port a tubular instrument is inserted known as a trocar. At the beginning of the procedure, the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to provide a working and viewing space for the surgeon. The laparoscope has an attachment with a camera and light which transmits images from the abdominal cavity to high-resolution video monitors in the operating room. During the operation, detailed images of the abdominal organs are displayed on the monitor and surgery is performed with using special laparoscopic instruments which are, also, passed into the abdomen through another trocar. This system allows the surgeon to perform the same operations as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions.

Laparoscopic surgery, in other words, is different way of performing surgery in which the surgical steps remain the same as open surgery, but it is performed with special instruments with small abdominal incisions. Now these days laparoscopic surgeries are performed with the use of sophisticated medical grade cameras, telescopes, laparoscopic surgical instruments and refined energy sources.

“Laparoscopic Surgery” is known with various names

  • Keyhole surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)
  • Minimal Access Surgery (MAS)
  • Band-Aid surgery
  • Scar less Surgery

In certain situations, a surgeon may choose to use a special type of port that is large enough to insert a hand. When a hand port is used, the surgical technique is called “hand assisted” laparoscopy. The incision required for the hand port is larger than the other laparoscopic incisions, but is usually smaller than the incision required for traditional surgery.

Dear lybrate-user My suggestion is that you should examined by a Gynaecologist first of all and share your perspective of getting hymenoplasty done. If the procedure is definitely required for your problem then it is advisable otherwise not. Plastic surgeons also perform hymenoplasty but their concern is not pertaining to your gynecological issues. Hence my advice is that you should visit a Gynaecologist for honest advice. I am a gynecologist and I have been performing hymenoplasty on regular basis since past 10 years. Hope this info helps you.

Hi lybrate-user My suggestion is that you should wait till you cross at least 6 weeks after your last periods. Once this period is over then you must go for scan to confirm the pregnancy status. B hcg evaluations by self are sometimes misleading as they need to be co related with your clinical parameters. Otherwise also, the confirmation of baby on imaging is most definite way of confirming pregnancy.

Is it ok to vomit thrice a day in 3 month of pregnancy and vomit whatever is being eaten, will there be any effects of vomiting on fetus.

Hi lybrate-user. Vomiting or nauseating is quite common in initial 12-14 weeks of pregnancy. Afterwards these issues settle down on their own. If you are not able to retain your meals to support your required calories and you still keep Vomiting then this might effect the fetus. Hence it's better to eat small chunks every 1-3 hours or so.

Better go for hormonal evaluation and ultrasound. Its little bit difficult to predict and hope for pregnancy with menstrual irregularities.
