Hi Practo  user, Afi low is really  concerned  thing, you take advice as your gynaecologist telling you. Take argin satchets two times a day in water , its amino acids so it mostly increases the fluid levels.Check out your blood pressure ,some time it occurs due to that. Watch out for leaking also. Good luck.
