    Good afternoon Madam. Yes there is still a chance you may be able to get pregnant as long as you are still observing your menstrual period. But the chance may be still at your age. You period is not regular because I believe you are at the onset of menopause. IVF may have a better chance for you but it's still not guaranteed. How old is your child and how long have you been trying to concieve? Have you seen a gynecologist about this?

    Ok. You should start by seeing a gynecologist. Some basic tests would be done like a pelvic scan and folliculometry to track your ovulation, hormonal assey. Depending on the results, further tests may be required. In the meantime, you can get an ovulation kit to check for ovulation with your early morning urine. When was your last menstrual period? Do you know your cycle length?

    Hello madam. Sorry If your tubes were tied, then there is no chance of you conceiving the natural way. But you may still have a chance with IVF. But you need to see a gynecologist about it.

    Hello madam. What you are describing is cervical cerclage. Which is different from bilateral tubal ligation like I though. But I still maintain that at your age, IVF offers better chances of conception than the natural method.

    you mean I can't get pregnant naturally without Ivf or I can't carry the pregnancy ?
    Dr. Ogechi M answered:

    Good morning Madam. I didn't say you can't get pregnant naturally. Just that you have a better chance of doing so through IVF. The most important thing to do for now if to confirm if you are still ovulating. You would have to see a gynecologist for this

    Hello madam. Sorry about that. Has it been like this for long? You need to do a pelvic ultrasound scan to rule out uterine fibroid. Please see a doctor for interpretation afterwards. Take care

    Good day madam. Please take any analgesic for the pain like diclofenac 50mg twice daily for 3days. Please don't use if you have peptic ulcer. But you need to see a doctor to ascertain the cause of the pain and heavy bleeding. You would need to do a pelvic ultrasound scan to help with diagnosis. Take care

    Good evening. Sorry about that. Please tell your husband to let a doctor examine the ear. There maybe excess wax or the ear drum may be inflamed or even ruptured. The cause will determine the best line of management. Take care

    Good evening Madam. Pid means pelvic inflammatory disease. It is the infection that occurs in the pelvic region where the uterus is. Fluid in the pouch of Douglas is a symptom of pid. What you need to do is a high vaginal swab mcs which will reveal the causative organism and the best antibiotic that can be used to treat it.
