Patient discussion about parturition

Q. sex after giving birth My baby (Shelly) is three months now. Me and my husband tried having sex a couple of times since she was born, but the intercourse just hurts too much. Is this normal? I heard that sometimes when you get cuts during the birth they sew you too tight. Can it be the case? And if so, is this permanent or will it get better?

A. as long as the wound is already recovered, I think you can start the sexual activities. But again it depends on every person, I think scoote had given us a good example for that.
In case you still feel some discomfort and even hurt sensation down there, it is advisable to go see your doctor, just to check.

Meanwhile, enjoy your life and my greeting for baby Shelly..

Q. Is it a birth defect in children? I know about the causes of autism. Is it a birth defect in children?

A. it's not an easy answer i'm afraid...there are congenital differences, but no "birth defect" that we can detect. there's a good pdf file that gives a full explanation about it...i think you'll find it useful:

Q. I'm scared to be pregnant... vomiting and to give birth...Please tell me it's fine!!

A. since how long are you pregnant? it seems that it just started. if you vomit a lot it is imperative that you drink enough water - still water like Vitel, Vichy, L'eau d'Evian that you get in your country and find bottles in glass - not in plastic! Plastic is anorganic and can't be assimilated in our bodies. there is no reason to be scared if you vomit. this means that you don't drink enough water. i know this. believe me and you will see that in the next days you will not vomit anymore. just keep me informed please!

Le Blanc (2009) stated that the timing of first ovulation at postpartum tends to occur gradually closer to the parturition date from January to May.
The proximal weight (weight, in kg) of the sows was individually obtained at 21 days after parturition with the aid of a body weighing tape for swines, based on the thoracic perimeter (TP, in m) and length (L, in m) of the sow, obtained through the equation: Weight = [TP.sup.2] x L x 69,3.
There were also no significant associations between the functionality of teat pairs CrP ([[chi square].sub.sub.4] = 2.98, P > 0.05), AP1 ([[chi square].sub.sub.4] = 2.05, P > 0.05), AP2 ([[chi square].sub.sub.4] = 0.44, P > 0.05) or CaP ([[chi square].sub.sub.4] = 3.77, P > 0.05) and parturition number.

In these studies, it is important to consider the use of farrowing induction protocols, that can alter the natural occurrence of parturition, as well as errors in data collection and registration that may explain very short (lower than 109-111 days) or long (above 120 days) gestations.
Colostrum (3-4 mL per sample) was collected from the first teat of each sow at onset of parturition as 0 h-colostrum.
In numerous mammalian species, the process of parturition, especially transformation of the myometrium from the quiescent to a contractile state, necessitates an increase in circulating estrogen concentrations prior to the onset of labor [11,14,48,49].
