Brief Answer:
Precautions

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) The position you mentioned is safe during pregnancy.

2) See to it that the man on top does not press your belly.

3) The only care he needs to take is that he should not thrust with full force and does not insert full length in and thrust.

4) These precautions should be safe enough.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Regards,
Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Brief Answer:
Poitional effects

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Missionary position is not safe as it causes pressure on abdominal blood vessels.

Any other positions other than that should not be done with too much thrust.

Because thrust leads to movement of the uterus and baby. Excessive movement can lead to abortion.

I hope your doubt is cleared now.

Hi I am a 43 year old Indian married women with two kids of age 14 and 10, I have a history of hormonal imbalnce, Strong PMS & irregular periods through out, otherwise no other health problem, one year back I have removed Mirena because of continuous bloating in abdomen and tenderness and pain in breast, no other side effects during 5 years of usage.8 days back I have gone through my first D&C because of 7 weeks unwanted pregnancy due to contraceptive failure. During the screening I am detected with a fibroid sized 2.4X1.6 Cm in in the anterior myometrium of the uterus . Please suggest me an oral contraceptive which can reduce my PMS as well and can support my age and newly discovered Fibroid. I have heared about Yasmin or Yaz with anti bloating properties, Please suggest, I want to consult an Indian Dr. due to availability of medicines.
