Question
Me and my boyfriend were having sex last night and ended up having sex twice in the span of a couple hours. The first time he came into the condom and then threw it away. The 2nd time we had sex the condom ended up breaking. However, after the first time he got up to go pee a few times before we had sex again.. And he did not ejaculate the 2nd time. We're both just scared because of the chances of pre-cum. Is there any chances of me getting pregnant from that?

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Yes, the precum of that small amount can cause pregnancy.

Most important is to know whether you are in the fertile period to get pregnant.If you are not in the fertile period then the chances of the pregnancy are less to nil.

I would like to know details of your menstrual cycle to be specific in my opinion.

How long are cycles ?
Are they regular or irregular ?
When was your last period ?
How long will be the flow ?

Waiting for your reply.

How long are cycles ? about 5 days

Are they regular or irregular ? irregular

When was your last period ? august 14th-august 18th

How long will be the flow ? can you re-phrase the question please?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 8 minutes later
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

A cycle is a duration from period (Bleeding) to period (Bleeding).

The flow is duration of the period , which is 5 days as you mention.

Based on your date I do not consider you to be in fertile period , hence the chances of pregnancy are negligible.

The fertile period starts from the 10th day of the cycle to 18th day of the cycle , sexual intercourse in that period would lead to pregnancy.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Would you recommend getting the plan b pill then? I'm just really nervous because of how irregular my cycle is.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 15 minutes later
Hi,

Yes, you can go ahead with Plan B pill , as you are still in the safe period of 72 hours you need for the pill to work.

I agree with you irregular period may be a glitch where the exact fertile period is always tough to determine.

Wish you good health.

Do you think there are any other options besides plan b? Because I have taken plan b before and I heard that its not good for your body the more that you take the pill.

And..

How likely is it for sperm to be in his precum even after he peed?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 5 minutes later
Hi,

Though the chances are less , still I would consider there is risk for pregnancy.Its just the matter of luck here.Sometimes sperm deposited on the thighs of the female can also cause pregnancy and there are reports of the same.

Yes, the Plan B does cause some hormonal imbalance and is not good when taken frequently.I still consider it being the best way to come out of the present risk.

Hope I answered your query.

What do you mean by hormonal imbalance?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 4 minutes later
Hi,

Plan B pill contains high dose hormone similar to ones present in the body naturally.Hence the Plan B alters the hormonal levels for a month or two and produce the symptoms respectively.

Hope I cleared your doubt.

What about the long term effects of plan b?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 4 minutes later
Hi,

There would be no long term effects and the side effects do not stay for more than 3 months.

The symptoms involve :
Inter-menstrual bleeding
pain during periods
Breast tenderness
failure of ovulation for two to three months.
headache, dizziness.

Not all above are seen and are not serious enough to cause any kind of impairment.

Could I start with birth control as soon as I get my period after taking plan b?

I've never taken birth control before.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 4 minutes later
Hi,

Yes, you can start with desired birth control measures from the next month itself.There would be no problem with plan B this month and birth control measure the next.

Even though its not my natural period?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 3 minutes later
Hi,

Need not worry,Not everyone get irregular periods with Plan B and you may have to get examined by a Gynaecologist while you are going for a birth control measure.The specialist would asses and find any problem which may affect the efficacy of the birth control measure you are going to employ.The specialist may plan the birth control measure accordingly based on the examination findings.

Ok so I'm 21 years old and my skin is the worst it's ever been and i'm not sure why. People tell me it could be my diet. I was my face frequently and try topical products like clearasil and such, but nothing seems to work.

Sidenote: I drank monster the energy drink for the last 5 years daily. And my girlfriend made me quit because its so unhealthy and seemed to be a problem. Could me suddenly stop drinking monster be a cause for my acne?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 9 hours later
Hi,

I did not understand your query.

Kindly re-frame the query with detailed description of the skin problem you have.

If it is acne,
Since how long are the lesions there ?
What area of the face the acne are much dense ?
Do they form pus ?
Is there any seasonal variation ?

Waiting for reply.

Yea, acne. Majority of it is on my chin/jawline. Not really pus. And it has only been the last couple months so this summer.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 5 hours later
Hi,

Yes, high protein and high fat diet do cause aggravation in acne.

A diet with high fibre , low carb and low fat will be helpful.

Do apply ADAPALENE gel over the affected areas twice daily, this will surely reduce the acne.
