User :   Hi - its my second day of chums; but am still having little cramps. Pls advise
Doctor :   hello
User :   hello
Doctor :   may i know your age please
User :   Hello Doc
User :   28
User :   we r trying to have a baby since more than 8 months now
Doctor :   is this the first time you are experiencing
User :   it used to be before getting chums
User :   and at times after a week post chums, as i was given letsi/latroz for ovulation
Doctor :   ok well dont worry we do consider 2 - 5 days before and after having cramps as nothing serious
User :   ok
Doctor :   and we suggest that you should wait upto ONE YEAR before we can look into as a case of infertility
User :   it looks like we are almost there
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   there is still lots of time
User :   this month our gynaec had done AIH
User :   no actually we tried from mar last year, but managed to miss the crucial date for about three months
Doctor :   its all about trying at this stage
User :   Is it like this.....i mean is all this normal?
Doctor :   there is nothing alarming as of now
User :   but all our reports are all clear
Doctor :   ok . well as for now you can wait
Doctor :   and only after 13 months you should seek an expert infertility physician
Doctor :   i can understand the concern
Doctor :   but right now the right approach is to wait and keep on trying
User :   honestly, i am thinking of speaking to a physician next month. we will be going for revised reports as all our reports are more than a year old
User :   ok
Doctor :   yes if the tests were conducted a year back
Doctor :   then yes please do repeat them
Doctor :   just in case anything was missed last time
User :   i have one major setback - my body is very acidic.....
Doctor :   can you elaborate ?
User :   the last sonography showed acid deposits in the gall bladder
User :   so acne before chums and acidity are major concerns
Doctor :   well a gall bladder issue in NO WAY are a reason for infertility i can assure you that
Doctor :   acne are common as the body undergoes hormonal changes
User :   sorry - if am sounding dental problems have an effect on ur health too? like a bad cavity?
Doctor :   please dont be i am here to guide you
User :   thanx
Doctor :   well no not at all. a dental cavity will not be of any concern
Doctor :   your welcome
Doctor :   take care of your self
User :   last question
Doctor :   sure
User :   what could be the reasons for reduction in blood flow? My flow has reduced from 3 days to 1 and half days now
User :   in fact this month and last, it was barely a day
Doctor :   you mean your blood pressure ?
User :   no i mean flow during chums
Doctor :   that again is a variation
Doctor :   its not of a concern
User :   really - is it not? my flow has gone bad since the time i have been put on ovulation medicines
Doctor :   since these are hormonal medications thats why change in flow and feeling nausea and having cramps are not serious side effects
User :   ok
Doctor :   but they do happpen
Doctor :   its has no long term side effect
User :   ok - gr8
Doctor :   you will be fine dont worry
User :   thanx a lot doc
Doctor :   take care of your self
Doctor :   your most welcome
Doctor :   your feedback is appreciated
Doctor :   good bye
