I had sex with my girlfriend and she hasn’t got her periods yet. What are the chances of her being pregnant? Please suggest some abortion pills and pregnancy tests.
Missing the regular period is the first sign of pregnancy. Though this is not a rule, and there may be many other reasons for missing the period too. Wait for a few more days or if you are anxious, stop reading the paper and go visit the doctor. Home pregnancy kits are available at all chemist shops. They are simple to use and accurate in competent hands. The use of emergency contraceptive pills is recommended under medical supervision for cases with unprotected sexual intercourses, wherein chances of pregnancy are too real to be ignored. The pills need to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse. It may be too late for you to think about an emergency contraception.

I am 13, and I want big breasts. Help.
The breast size of a lady usually increases till the end of puberty. You definitely have a few years left. The breast is composed of fatty tissue and increase in the body’s fat may lead to a growth in the size of the breast. All these maneuvers are not worth waiting for. Be happy with what you have. It is a myth that application of creams or pressing the breast can increase the size. The breast size can be increased by plastic surgery using prosthesis, like silicon.

Can a person have zero sperm count?
Sperms are the male equivalent of the female egg. Semen contains sperms. Absence of sperms in the semen is called as azoospermia. It can be due to a variety of causes like tumours, trauma, autoimmune diseases etc. It results in failure of conception, as the female ovum is not fertilised. However, even a person with azoospermia can have satisfactory sexual intercourse and vice versa. To get more detailed information, talk to your doctor.
