Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I want to conceive, and we have been trying for three months but I am not getting any result. I do not have any period issues. Kindly suggest.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Let me first tell you that you are at the right age for pregnancy (19 to 35 years). The next fact is that pregnancies are tried by humans but time is decided by God. So do not get too anxious and stressed out seeing the result. A lot of factors control the pregnancy outcome. I see your weight as a possible problem. Your weight has to be: Weight(in Kgs)= Height (in cms)-100. Your expected weight is 52 to 57 kgs. Once you reduce weight to the normal range, you will not need any medicine to get pregnant and the pregnancy will be healthy. To reduce weight - Avoid fasting, junk food or fast foods, red meat, reduce snacks in between meals. Have low-calorie food, and take high proteins. Regular exercise (especially for the waist and hip area), aerobics, yoga, brisk walking (swing your hands well), try to reduce two to four kgs per month. Do not hurry on weight reduction, it will be difficult to maintain. As soon as you reduce at least five kgs, you will see changes. All the fat is converted into hormones and this can reduce your pregnancy chances. I would suggest you keep trying for a few more months, but if you are very anxious to conceive or due to social stresses, kindly see if the following checklist of investigations is done:

Husband- Semen analysis at least two, done four weeks apart preferably in an infertility center (examination done by andrologist), blood sugar test.

Wife - Blood sugars, thyroid profile, ultrasound scans to evaluate uterus, ovaries, and adnexa.

Confirm tubal patency- most importantly- the tube is the connection between the uterus and ovaries (the bridge where sperm meets the egg and forms a baby) this is the size of the hair follicle and cannot be seen on scans. Being such a small opening tube can get blocked easily, so check with HSG (Hysterosalpingography an X-ray with dye), SSG (sonosalpingography, a scan with dye), or laparoscopy.

If all this is done and found normal, nothing can stop a pregnancy. Again I say, do not get stressed out, because it will reduce your positive feeling in life, just try hard and pray for that golden moment, I am sure you will make it, never lose hope.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Thank you.
