Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

These are just precautions that are followed routinely when there is a suspicion of pregnancy. ...Read more

Use Aspirin and relaxation and control yourself. Get a thorough evaluation by your md. ...Read more
