Hello
Thanks for writing to us.
Insertion of seminal fluid inside the vaginal canal in any form leads to a risk of pregnancy.
However, after the unprotected act on 21st November, you had a normal period on 6th of December.
Please let me know if you had any episodes of unprotected sexual intercourse after that period, and also the length and pattern of your normal menstrual periods.
Home urine pregnancy tests are 97 % reliable.
Sometimes, if you test too early, or do so following a wrong method ( inadequate amount of urine or reading the result on the strip too early or too late ), a false negative ( test saying negative while you are actually pregnant ) may occur.
Also, if the urine is not collected in a sterile vial and is contaminated by other substances like soap etc, this might happen.
For the 3 % chance of error, it is best to consult a Gynecologist, who would examine your partner, and order blood pregnancy tests or an ultrasound if there is any suspicion of pregnancy.
Also, you can discuss with your gynecologist regarding a safe, reliable method of contraception for the future.
Take care and please feel free to ask for any further clarifications.

I never had sex after that. Normal lenght of my cycle is 1 month. It came on 6th dec and before that it was on 4 nov.
After how many days can a home pregnency test can be done with surity?
Also after the normal periods on 6th dec still there can be a chance of pregnency?

Hi,
A home pregnancy test can be done with surety on the first day of your missed period.
For eg, your normal cycle length is 30 days, so if you had your last period on 6th December, by 9th January, it can be done.
However, intrinsic efficiency of the test is that it is 97 % effective.
If you did not have sexual intercourse after 6th december, and that was a proper period, then chances of pregnancy are nil.
There could be other causes of a delayed period such as stress, anxiety, fluctuations in weight, thyroid disorders, polycystic ovaries etc, which can be best evaluated by your gynecologist.
As such, you were due on 8th January, and it has been only 2 days yet, which might be a normal variation.
I would advice you to wait for a few more days before consulting a gynecologist.
Take care.

my son is 20 years old and he is on synthroid and saizen. Yesterday I took him to a doctor because he s had lower back pain for a couple of days. The doctor prescribed Naprosyn 500mg for pain twice daily when needed and cyclobenzaprine (10mg) for 10 days at bedtime. My son took only one dose of cyclobenzaprine last night and today he went to school and was feeling very dizzy. I brought him home and did some some research about this drug and found out that people who have a thyroid disorder should not take this medication. Of course I called the doctor immediately to advise her of her mistake so it won t happen to anybody else. Is it dangerous if he only took one? What should I do?

Hello Sir,

My wife delivered a boy baby at 7 Months through C-Section on 14.04.2011 following uncontrolled high blood pressure (BP at the time of Delivery was 190/100). But the baby was not survived due to RDS. After the delivery also the BP was not under control. She met Gynac and also General Medicine. It was confirmed that her TSH level is 7.5. Doctors advised her Thyronorm, Thyrowell and Ecosporin 75 mg Tablets. I would like to know whether the Thyroid disorder will come to normal?. Whether she can stop all these medicines once the thyroid leveles comes to normal?. If not what are the side effects of all these medicines.
