Is it possible to get pregnant while menstruating? By Indira IVF •

Quite a lot of people mistakenly believe that sex during menstruation does not cause pregnancy. However, IVF doctors from the top infertility centers and IVF hospitals claim that this 
is very far from the truth.

Menstruation, also addressed as periods or menses, is a natural phenomenon that occurs
 in woman's life. But what exactly is menstruation? According to experienced 
gynecologists and experts from admired Fertility clinics in Delhi, the ovaries in a woman's
 body expel an egg every month. This process is called ovulation. Before ovulation, the 
uterine wall gets thickened in order to prepare it for fertilization and the consequent
 implantation of the egg. If the egg is not fertilized by a sperm within a day or up to
 48 hours of ovulation, it is expelled out of the body along with the blood that had 
lined the uterine wall. This is when a woman menstruates. 

Menstruation lasts for two to eight days for most women and repeats after a gap of 28 to
 32 days. It is believed that since an egg is expelled out of the body in menstruation, sexual 
intercourse during this time will not result in pregnancy. Conversely, the gap between
 every menstrual cycle varies in different women. It may be 28 in some and 30 in others 
while 32-35 in the rest. In some women, ovulation might occur shortly after
 menstruation such as within two to three days from menstruation because of their short
 duration of menstruation cycle. In such a case, if a couple have sex during menstruation,
 the sperms can survive for three to five days, can stay in the body of the female and 
would still be capable of fertilizing the egg that will be produced by the ovaries around
 the same time. Thus, the chances of fertilization are high.

In addition, some women experience light bleeding or spotting during ovulation. This is
 completely normal and nothing to worry about.  Nonetheless, many of these women
 mistake it to be their period. Having unprotected sexual intercourse during this time 
based on the aforementioned myth can absolutely result in pregnancy.  

Additionally, if the couple has indulged in sexual intercourse during the female's
 periods and are worried about conceiving. Then they must keep an eye on certain 
symptoms of implantation or pregnancy such as bleeding, dizziness, nausea and others
 indicating a successful implantation or nausea, swelling, excessive craving, 
vertigos and more indicating a pregnancy.   

In addition, chief doctors and IVF experts argue that the best option to prevent pregnancy
 at any stage of the menstrual cycle is using precautions like condoms, birth control pills 
and others.

Surprising causes of high blood pressure, simple strategies to manage hypertension By: Bel Marra

How healthy is your blood pressure? And exactly what causes high blood pressure, anyway? It rises with each and every heartbeat and then falls as your heart relaxes between beats. It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim.

Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…

Arthritis is a group of painful and degenerative conditions marked by inflammation in the joints that causes stiffness and pain. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gets worse with age and is caused by wear and tear over the years. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking the joints as if they were foreign tissues.
