Treating of infection while breastfeedingI wish to ask if it is safe to use canesten pessaries/ insertion while breastfeeding. I notice that I am having virginal itching....
Canesten is an Antifungal. Pessaries are safe to use during pregnancy and are also safe for the mother to use if the baby is being breastfed. There have been no recorded harmful effects on the unborn in animal or human studies when creams or pessaries have been used. But I will suggest you ask your doctor because your situation might be unique. Take care.

Some women bleed during their first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The most possible cause during early pregnancy is Implantation bleeding. You may experience some normal spotting within the first six to 12 days after you conceive as the fertilized egg implants itself in the lining of the uterus. But since you said this is heavy bleeding, you need to see a doctor as a matter of urgency

Having irregular periods isn’t uncommon; in fact, 14 to 25% of women experience irregular cycles at some point during their fertile years and there are different reasons for that such as (PCOS, ovarian insufficiency, thyroid disorders, hyperprolactinemia, uterine fibroids, polyps, endometriosis, different coagulopathies and many others). But having irregular cycles doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to fall pregnant naturally.

Are you wondering if you are pregnant or not? Or Are you suspecting to be pregnant due to unprotected sex you had lately? You'll have to wait and take another test in a week. Or better still do a blood pregnancy test. It's more accurate and can detect pregnancy earlier.

It's hard to tell as of today until you do a proper pregnancy test. What you've seen might also be an implantation bleeding. This happens when embryo attaches itself to the lining of your uterus will advise you to wait to see how it goes. For implantation bleeding the discharge or spotting will usually be pinkish or dark brown, whereas period blood tends to be bright, vibrant red. If still worried, try see the gynaecologist for next steps
How long in days or weeks will Postpill or Postinor 2 delay menstruation?
  • Best Answer
It depends and it's very relative. Typically your next menstrual period may come on time. But atimes, it may be either be early or late but shouldn't be more than one week late . If your next period is more than 1 week late, or if it is unusually light, perform a pregnancy test. If you do not have a menstrual period after 3 weeks of taking Postinor-2, you may be pregnant.

Was it Urine Pregnancy Test or Blood Test? While urine pregnancy tests can accurately detect the presence of hCG, they are qualitative - merely giving a negative or positive result. Most urine tests need a higher level of hCG than a blood test to show a positive result and so may be slower to show a positive result.
