Folic acid tablets along with exercise are very helpful. But for more appropriate advice, it is essential to know menstrual history and if she has ever conceived or not. If you call me, I can help you.

I had unprotected sex with my fiance on 8th feb, her menstrual cycle date was on 12th feb eventually she missed her date today is 15th feb. Are there chances for her to get pregnant and if yes please advice how to get through it. Thank you.

If she had her previous period on 12 th jan and has regular cycles, it is not very probable that she has conceived provided sex didnot happen earlier. You can wait for 4-5 days before doing a pregnancy test if you are tense, she might have periods by that time too.

My wife has breast pain since last week. Our last child was born on January 2010 and she is not pregnant either. She have hyperthyroidism.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Pain in mammary gland during and after menses is very common and is related to hormone progesterone, which deposits extra water in breasts causing it pain. If the problem is too severe then 3 months course of medicine (low dose oc pills) can bring down the pain. Also you can take pain killers during that time.

Toxic Shock Syndrome - Know How it Happens?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Toxic Shock Syndrome - Know How it Happens?

Toxic shock syndrome is a severe condition resulting from a bacterial infection. This infection is caused by the bacteria, Staphylococcus Aureus, which enter the bloodstream. Once into the bloodstream, the bacteria start producing toxins in the body. This is common among menstruating women who have a habit of using super-absorbent tampons. It can, however, also affect men and children.

Symptoms
In case of toxic shock syndrome, one might experience symptoms of low blood pressure and fever. Dryness of the eyes and the mouth, muscle pain and diarrhea are also common symptoms of this disorder. Your blood pressure may drop suddenly, making you prone to fatigue and nausea.

Causes
This type of infection occurs when the bacteria enter the body through a cut or sore on the skin. Women who use tampons during their menstrual cycles are vulnerable as tampons happen to be thriving spots for bacteria if aren’t changed frequently. Fibers present in the tampons may also create friction against the vagina, thus creating an opening for the bacteria to enter the bloodstream.

In addition to the causes, there are certain risk factors for toxic shock syndrome:

  1. Presence of an open wound on the skin
  2. Giving birth to a child
  3. Using vaginal sponge or diaphragm as contraceptives

Treatments
This disorder is considered to be a medical emergency. To combat the bacterial infection, antibiotics are administered into the body via intravenous means. The course of the antibiotic treatment lasts for about 7-8 weeks. There are other treatments for this disorder, which mainly depend on the causes. If the cause of the disorder is a tampon or a vaginal sponge, then it will need to be removed from the body. In case of a wound being the cause, the pus from the wound will need to be drained. Blood pressure medications are also possible treatment modes for toxic shock syndrome.

You can also follow these preventive measures:
1. Replace your tampon regularly
2. Avoid using super absorbent tampons
3. Use sanitary napkins when the volume of bleeding is low
4. In case of wounds, keep the area clean and dry

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Please do not be tense about your breast feeding issue. Enjoy your pregnancy. Keep your self physically active. Go for walk, eat nutritious food like with high protein, low carb and low fat ratio. Listen to music, meditate and keep a positive outlook. There is nothing like nil breastmilk production.

Hi, Take Shatavarex granules 2 tsf twice a day mixed with milk along with Leptaden tablet. Keep your mind eased out and do not have tensions and worries which bears negative effect. Put the child on your breasts every two hours once which will incresase the reflexes and help in increased prolactin harmone secretion.

Health benefits of Honey

Honeys that are darker in color are considered to have more antioxidants.

Honey is quite different from white sugar, it contains about 30% glucose and 40% fructose – two monosaccharide or simple sugars – with 20% other complex sugars. Honey also includes dextrin, a starchy fiber. This combination helps the body regulate blood sugar levels.
However, unlike white sugar where fructose and glucose are combined as sucrose and require an additional step in the digestive process, in honey, these two sugars are separate. Thus, the glucose acts as an instant energy source.

It contains many vitamins and minerals in small amounts. A list of these include: niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

Honey helps reduce constipation, bloating and gas.

The antioxidants in honey are a cholesterol fighter and have the potential to protect against heart disease.

It may be a hormonal problem. Kindly get a blood test for Serum Prolactin Level and T3, T4, TSH on empty stomach, without having tea/coffee/breakfast after a good 8 hours of sleep and then contact your Gynaecologist.
