Brief Answer:
Home remedies will not help f you are pregnant.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The chances of pregnancy are present as you had sex after the periods were finished. The home remedies that you are trying will not help you to a large extent if you are pregnant. You need to wait for your periods for next 4-5 days and then test your urine for pregnancy in case the periods do not start. in case you are pregnant then abortion pills will be needed to terminate the pregnancy.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Doctor! We have pulled out before the ejaculation and the only doubt we have is that a little of semen might have been in my vagina.
And also what about the option of vitamin c tablets. I read online that it's a safe option

Brief Answer:
Low chances of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Even if he pulled out precum and slightly semen can also cause a pregnancy. Taking high dose of vitamin C will not alone cause an abortion. it is best to remain stress free and wait for the periods.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Guessing that it is pregnancy, when is the earliest I can go for a medicinal abortion. I have had the last day of my periods last time on Feb 23 and I have a 28-day cycle. when is the earliest i can take the medicine.

Brief Answer:
You can test after 23rd.

Detailed Answer:
Before taking the medicine pregnancy needs to be confirmed with a urine test or an ultrasound scan. You can test your urine on 23-25 March to see if you are pregnant. The chances of pregnancy are low.

Stress also delays the periods. Wait for a week more and then test your urine.

Regards.

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

Hello Doctor,

My aunt was unwell for the past week with a possible cause of parasitic worms. She had a stay for about 3 days in the hospital which resulted in her being very week. This week when she was home she felt giddy and hit her head to the floor. The various tests conducted have all Thankfully been Fine. She though is very weak and cannot even sit down on the bed. She is currently recuperating in the hospital and the blood, stool tests were norma. The liver tests were having figures on a slightly higher side and are awaiting the cortisol results in a couple of days. The practioners are trying to find the actual cause of the weakness. The ammonia levels were high and sodium was less. She was on a saline 3 concentration sodium. Can you please advise what may be the trigger for this weakness.
