That's why warming up and not eating right before exercise helps easy the transition. See your doctor if that persists after trying this. ...Read more

I'm late on my period but if I don't come on today I will be on my period when I'm abroad! How do I speed up my period and come on!?

Too late to change: Unfortunately, it is too late to accelerate a delayed period for today. Your period could have been adjusted with the birth control pill last month to avoid this issue going abroad. Using progesterone to initiate your period also won't bring it on today. Make sure that you are not pregnant by running a PG test and pack hygiene products for your trip if negative. ...Read more

Pregnant due in 8days got so much pressure i can't walk and even when i lay down i got it my doc sent me home 3day ago is this normal?When do I go bak

Sounds normal: The end of pregnancy at term is an uncomfortable time for some women. The sense of pressure is quite real, and depending on your size, you truly may not have much room left, and things like urination, bowel movements and walking can be affected. Sounds like you are getting regular care. The best person to ask of course is your physician! good luck and hope all goes well! ...Read more

My menses stopped today it started on 17.02.14 when will i be fertile? I really want to have a baby

My menses stopped today it started on 17.02.14 when will i be fertile? I really want to have a baby

A rough guide: If you have periods that are very regular and your menstrual cycle is always 28days, then you would ovulate on day 14 counting the first day of your period as day 1. The egg lives about 1 day and sperm can survive for 3 to 5 days. Therefore you could get pregnant on days 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Of course this pertains to a perfectly and consistently regular menstrual cycle. Check with your gyn. ...Read more

Kegels, Pessary, ..: After vaginal delivery urine stress incontinence may occur which means bladder leakage with any pressure on the bladder (e.g. Cough, jump, run). Kegel exercises (tightening/loosening the muscles of rectum/bladder) may help. If severe your gyn can give you a pessary (a device that pushes bladder upward). The last resort is surgery. ...Read more
