Third trimester is an important time as pregnant women tend to feel dizzy and experience breathlessness. Taking care of the growing baby and self is very important. It is also the time to consider banking your baby's umbilical cord stem cells. Stem cell banking is a health cover for your child as it protects your baby from serious medical disorders.

Also while intercourse on every alternate days. only few qty of semen goes inside her Virgina.

We approached the Gynecologist & she told us to go for DNA test so what is this?

Note: Sometimes i do Masturbate which Gynecologist is not aware.

So pl advise & whether can we do this

Hi KKB66, I suggest you not to go for family planning as you are still a fresh pair. I think you should be first get educated in doing a goog intercourse where she is on also playing good role. I suggest you to go for foreplay before intercource.
