Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi pannag here !
User :   hi
Doctor :   please proceed with your query
User :   i had one clarification,,,which is very important for me...
Doctor :   sure
User :   I and my wife are planning for cenception next month i.e july 2011. We have been married for two years and for the first whole year my wife was having the 28days small doze contraceptive pills (every month) without any break. In the second year she totally discontinued. But now the periods are not regular for her. It has become 2 months once or sometimes one and half months by taking a five day pills (prescribed by doctor) which makes her have period in that week. Now, again for the past two months she has not had her period and is thinking of having the 5 day pills (prescribed by doctor) for getting the periods - so when could we try for conceiving in the month of july ? or what is your suggestion. My wife is 25yrs old and i am 28yrs. Waiting for your early reply. i need the best suggestion as you understand the situation ! Many Thanks.
Doctor :   may i know when was her last menstrual cycle ?
User :   2 months back,,,the exact date i could ask her when she returns back from office.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it is common for periods to get irregular when one discontinues the contraceptive pills
Doctor :   but if it irregular for an year then it requires an evaluation
Doctor :   taking the 5 day pill will get her cycles , but it may not be making sure that it will be regular
User :   ok
Doctor :   the more the cycles get irregular, the lesser the chances of pregnancy
Doctor :   hence I would suggest you to go in for a gynecological evaluation
Doctor :   she will need a scan
Doctor :   and some hormone tests
Doctor :   she can take the 5 day pill as recommended
Doctor :   and then get her cycles
Doctor :   once she gets the cycles , you can start trying for a baby
Doctor :   from day 8 to day 16
User :   ok so that days remain the same ?
Doctor :   have intercourse regularly this dates will have maximum chances of pregnancy
Doctor :   no , that is what is the problem
Doctor :   her cycles must first get regular
Doctor :   that can be done only by regular treatment
Doctor :   as 5 day pills will be only a temporary solution
Doctor :   if everything is normal , we can only rely on 5 day pills
Doctor :   at least her 2 to 3 next cycles should come on time
Doctor :   and then it would increase pregnancy chances
Doctor :   hence get a scan done and an examination
User :   ok , so now which doctor do you suggest and when to meet up, can we meet tomorrow then ?
Doctor :   the gynecologist will be able to suggest you the right dates after observing her cycles
Doctor :   may i know in where are you located ?
User :   New BEL road bangalore

Doctor :   do you have any other questions ?
User :   yes, so only after meeting the doctor , we shall go for the 5 day pills ?
Doctor :   yes , that would be better, as if needed the doctor can make changes with medicines before taking them
