Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

We had sex before her period was due by 10 days, and now that it has not, we tested a pregnancy test, but it only showed one black line, which implies we are not pregnant. Should we wait another few days to see if we are still not pregnant, or should we try again? Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

As per your history, sexual intercourse was done in the periovulatory period. Also, the present period is missed. I would suggest waiting for another week to confirm pregnancy.

I hope I have answered your question.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

My wife has been unable to walk for four to five days due to significant leg and foot discomfort. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

There must be a reason for the severe leg pain. With appropriate medical history, I would be in a better position to guide you. But in general, I suggest you tablet Acenac P (Aceclofenac and Paracetamol) one tablet two times a day for two days suspecting the cause is related to musculoskeletal origin.

I hope I have answered your question.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
