My Wife had M P Forte Tablets ,the entire course for 3 days .But she didn't get her periods .Its almost a week now .Initially we thought to terminate the pregnancy but now We are planning to keep the pregnancy .Also in the past we had taken MPT Kit thrice a year back ? Will it have any effect on the child ?

First and forefore you need to repeat the urine pregnancy test.If you get a positive result again,get an ultrasound asap. If the tabs were taken properly she should have aborted by now. If the ultrasound shows a viable pregnancy then see your obstetrician with the report.Its too early to tell whether there will be any lasting effect on the fetus.If there is good cardiac activity then the pregnancy has a good chance.Using MP kits repeated is not recommended.

Tablets were taken properly ,but then too my wife didnt get her periods.We did the pregnancy test and it is positive. How is this possible ????You mentioned about cardiac activity ......whose cardiac activity you are referring and how do we come to know its good ......

Since your wife hasnt got any bleeding after taking the tablets it obviously didnt work.So the next step would be to have an ultrasound. You didnt mention the last period date and when you took the tablets. the ultrasound will show if the fetus has any cardiac activity.If its good,the scan will mention it.

My wife got her period on 9th Oct 2012.After that she has missed her period.She consumed tablets 20th November for 3 days.Basically there were two tablet. 1)Regulin Forte 2 tablets 2) MP Forte 12 tablets for 3 days.2 Tabs in the morning and 2 tabs in the night.

Also we had unprotected sex on from 19th day onwards till her periods. Is it possible that she must have ovulated on 19th Day.Because I used to avoid sex between 10 -14 days as these are meant to be unsafe days.

Also since my wife is pregnant ,is it possible to have sex with her ?? If yes till which month ??Any particular position needs to be maintained ?Can we have sex without any protection?

Ok,so she was about 5 weeks pregnant when the tabs were taken.If she had regular cycles,then ovulation on 19th is unlikely.Very rarely does that occur. But delayed conception is sometimes possible.
Now that she wants to keep the pregnancy,consult an obstetrician and get an usg done.Yes,intercourse can be done. But be careful of excessive force in the first 3 months.It can be continued till she is comfortable.Since she is pregnant already, protection plays no part here unless you are worried about infections.To your discretion.
