    Goodday ma. The menstrual flow may range from bright red to dark red depending on the rate of breakdown of redblood cells in the menstrual flow. For how long have you been trying to conceive ma? Do you have regular intercourse(3-4 times per wk every week). If you have been trying for more than 6months and you have regular frequent intercourse, please see a gynaecologist whovll carry out some tests to ascertain the cause of the delay. Cheers

    I have done hormonal profile analysis which was interpreted OK by a Doctor. But oestrogen was omitted in the test. what type of vitamin E can you advised for me. thanks
    Dr. ADEBOLA A answered:

    You need to check the estrogen level ma as this is very key in fertility, so you might need to repeat the test or probably do only the estrogen level. Estrogen is the one responsible for development of the egg, so if its not within normal limits, your body might not produce eggs for ovulation. About the vit E, you can get any type available in the pharmacies. There's no particular one we recommend. I wish you the best of luck ma. And do remember to get back if you have questions that needs to be clarified. Cheers

    At what day of my circle will I get the oestrogen test done? and what can also do back pain? can back delay conception?
    Dr. ADEBOLA A answered:

    The entire hormonal assay including estrogen level is done on day 21 of your menstrual cycle i. E 21 days from your the start of your last menstrual period. Causes of backpain are numerous but its usually due to spasm of the muscles of the back from stress or overuse of the muscles. Backpain cant delay conception. Cheers

    Hello ma. You are likely to ovulate AROUND 15th of January. I daid atound because it might not be on the 15th exactly, it may be on 14th,15th or 16th of january. But it sure will be on those days so please have sex more on those days or the days around that day. Cheers
