Dear Mrs xyz
Firstly you need to tell me whether you have conceived on your own or after taking medications( asissted conception)
Secondly,you need to tell me how much weight you have gained in the last 2 month. Your obstetrician has rightly advised you against gaining too much of weight in this pregnancy.It is not advised that you lose weight in this pregnancy or follow any such diet which leads to weight loss.
Obesity leads to chances of early miscarriage,preterm labour,baby growing too big o ... Read Full Answer
Is there any chance of pregnancy? How will I know that postpone 72 has worked or not? We don't want pregnancy now. What should I do? Please advice.
Yes, Postpone 72 is not 100 percent effective and it can cause a pregnancy in a few people.
You will get to know about its effectiveness only after your next periods,though you might have a withdrawal bleeding or you might not have it . Pregnancy can only be confirmed after your next normal periods.
If your next periods are normal with same flow and last for same number of days then you should be safe enough(confirmed) that you don't have a pregnancy.
There can be a pregnancy after even h ... Read Full Answer
Hi, I am 23 Year female. I had DNC last year in 5th month of pregnancy. I had pus cells in the first month, used anti -biotics at that time. Now, i have been confirmed pregnancy. Again i have 1-2 PUS CELLS, & ESR is HIGH. I am having dry cough also now.
What could be the reason? Is it due to infections transmitted in sex with my husband? How should i take medication?
1-2 pus cells in urine is no cause for concern as if it is more than 10 pus cells/high power field,it is of consequence.
Esr high can be due to the cough that you are having.ESR is a very non specific indicator of infection in the body and can be raised even in normal pregnancy
No need for antibiotics for the dry cough,you can take lozenges uptil 2 a day or antihistaminics like avil, which is safe in pregnancy,if the cough is irritating to the extent that it is disturbing your sleep or othe ... Read Full Answer
Hi, I stared the HCG diet 10 days ago using the drops. I also am trying to have a baby so I had sex three times during the week of ovulation. Last period was on January 8. I have had pregnancy symptoms, five positive pregnancy tests, no period. I did have some spotting but it was brown which makes me think that I am pregnant. I am not sure if it is the HCG drops causing a false positive test. Last night I put some of the drops on a pregnancy test and it was a faint positive. My dr. recommended a blood test and then another 48 hours later. I have poor insurance coverage as I am a business owner, and I don't want to spend the money on the blood tests this early. I usually have a 28-31 day cycle. I am thinking of just waiting a couple of weeks, I live a healthy lifestyle. Advice, sorry to ramble on.
your issues as to whether the test for pregnancy is actually positive or not are actually confirmed by the serum beta hcg which if doubles in 48 hours means a viable and growing pregnancy.
please get the blood tests for the pregnancy done as told.
Also ,i hope you had rhogam after in your 1st pregnancy and after the miscarriage.
Also your previous pregnancy with history of incompetent os means that this condition is likely to happen again so go in for prophylactic encirclage of the ... Read Full Answer
I need to abort my 3 to 4 weeks old pregnancy. I have tested my urine wait the pregnancy test tube (HCG test tube). It gave me a positive pregnancy result. Now i wish to abort it at home. I do not wish to go to the hospital and am not economically well too. hence please guide me with the quick abortion in a simple way.
Pregnancy cannot be less tahn 4 weeks as it is always counted from the day of the last menstrual period,so your pregnancy should be calculated accordingly.Also,termination of pregnancy ,is not such a simple procedure, so kindly consult a gynaecologist,get an ultrasound done for early pregnancy to calculate the exact size of the pregnancy,blood group and haemoglobin done.
Taking over the counter medications cause more harm and may even be life threatening,so kindly refrain without proper pre ... Read Full Answer
