Corona Virus | Is this right time to get pregnent in lockdown ?

Corona Virus| Is this right time to get pregnent in lockdown ?

Will a baby bounce in nine months? Is this a bad time to get pregnant? Can PrEP protect me? And should high-risk people stop altogether? Many people thought that avoiding kisses or wearing a mask during sex can reduce the risk of corona transmission. 

We don't know when we know that the risk begins when you reach within six feet. If a person is contagious, the air and bed - or any surface on which you have sex or sleep - will be contaminated by the droplet nucleus. 

"but wait!" Some of you have said, 

"What if we don't sleep in the same room, and we manage sex by standing up, not facing each other nor should we find ourselves against any surface Need to freeze? 

" When I salute your core strength, you still stay in the same room, breathe in the same air - and breathe loudly at each other - and thus you have taken a risk. 

"What if I use the N95 mask?" Some of you asked. Please do not do. Health care workers are putting themselves at risk to provide medical care because they do not have enough for this equipment. If you have a stash of N95s, the sexiest thing is to donate them to your local hospital.

Now, on to your other questions.

What is the likelihood of a Covid-19 baby boom around Christmas? Just curious. — Nick, 76, Charleston, S.C.

Highly unlikely.

We have all heard about so-called icy children and fake fertility. Confidence is when we are trapped inside with another person, people quickly turn to sex. 

And if you are heterosexual, fertile and not using contraception, the result is a baby boom after nine months. Except, copped-up concepts are a myth. 

It may have originated from the New York City blackout of November 1965, where deliveries and delivery units were observed nine months later. 

However, once the data was analyzed, there was no child bounce in fact. But, you can say that what we are experiencing is different from a blackout or a blizzard due to being homebound once or twice a night. 

The best comparison is likely to be from the 1918 influenza epidemic. Later, there was a shortage of births from 5 percent to 15 percent in the United States and in three Scandinavian countries. 

There are believed to be two reasons (keep in mind that there may be other factors that are missed given that we are looking at data from a hundred years ago): first, the risk of miscarriage in the first trimester due to illness during the epidemic. Increases (we have no information to tell us that there is an increased risk of miscarriage with Kovid-19, so please don't extrapolate and panic). 

The second is something we can revisit: less sex as a result of stress - economic uncertainty, illness, you name it - and less availability of sex partners. 

This may sound a familiar one, and as such, a baby boom in late 2020 or early 2021 seems less likely. 

I have read that the protease inhibitor in PrEP prevents coronavirus. 

Does this mean that people on PrEP (or H.I.V-positive people are using the same medication as part of their treatment) can continue to have sex without being worried? - Nate, 39, London no. 

There is no suggestion that drugs in PrEP are useful in protecting against coronovirus. Pr.I, otherwise known as pre-proliferation prophylaxis (PrEP) for H.I.V, with H.I.V. 

Taking two medicines every day to protect against - Tenofovir and imitricitabine are included. 

Risk from sexual activity. 

Truvada and Descovy are two FDA approved names for this combination of drugs. 

These two drugs can also be taken as part of a treatment for people living with H.I.V. Tenofovir and amreticitabin inhibit the enzyme reverse transcriptase, using H.I.V. To make more copies of themselves, but not used by coronaviruses. 

Just as all antibiotics do not work for all bacteria, similarly all antiviral drugs do not work for all viruses. 

The confusion is understandable given that the two other drugs used for H.I.V. - Lopinavir and ratanavir, which act on enzyme proteases - have been investigated as treatments for covid-19. 

The first publication did not show a benefit, but other research in continuation. In the meantime, I think distance and handwashing can protect us against Kovid-19, while masks can help protect others.
