Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, I would advise the following for relief. Simultaneously, however, you must ensure to visit your OB/ GYN too for a clinical examination of your condition. Sore/ injured nipples apart, your breast lump needs to be diagnosed appropriately as well, and treatment recommended apropos. (a) You can apply calendula cream to the nipples after feed and post cleaning them with clean, moist and hot cloth. Ensure to clean your nipples before your next feed. (b) Apply a cool compress to your nipples before you feed. It can help relieve the soreness, if any. Keep changing sides while the child sucks, feeding on the side that is less painful. (c) Avoid wearing tight fitting bra. Make sure, you expose your breasts to fresh air daily. Exposure to sunlight for about a minute daily can help too. (d) Should the pain be unbearable, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. (e) Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, you can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Especially, vegetables & fruits rich in carotenoids, vitamin C & vitamin B12 are known to help in this condition. (f) Try avoiding tea, coffee, carbonated soft drinks, dairy products including chocolates, alcohol, greasy, sugary and other high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. (g) Green tea is an exception though. Stay well hydrated and have at least 8 - 10 glasses of clear fluids through out the day. (h) Homeopathy 'Phytolacca Decandra' mother tincture of which when diluted (1 part: 4 parts water) and applied topically, is known to help in cases of infection, suppuration, swelling of breasts and cracked nipples. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Vagina is always moist and therefore itmis a thriving place for bacteria and fungus. It is not advisable to lick or suck vagina. Take care.

Now a days pencils don't contain lead. Pencils use a carbon-based substance called graphite. Though graphite has many of the same physical properties as lead, it is not toxic. It's not a heavy metal, so the body can easily break it down and dispose of it. Unless the pencil is coated with a lead-based paint, getting lead poisoning from a pencil is virtually impossible.Chewing pencils remains dangerous without the threat of lead poisoning. Sharp pencils in the mouth can cause cuts in mouth. Sucking on objects could cause dental problems later in life. If swallowed, a pencil can damage the gastrointestinal tract and a surgical abstraction might be necessary. In the classroom, pencils can be covered with germs and if you are chewing on her pencil in class, you are more likely to catch colds or the flu. Additionally, pencils can be coated with harmful substances. So avoid putting pencils or any other nonfood objects in mouth.--------- Just explain your friend the harmful effect off pensils .She will definitely stop this habit.

Most common cause is diminished hormone in peri-menopausal age. Best is to consult a gynaecologist. Easy to treat by that instead of developing stress.

I am 10 weeks pregnant and my gyne has not asked for any blood test so far. She said come after a month and then we 'll have some tests. By that time I ll be 14 weeks. She did ask to get an ultrasound done which was fine. But I don't understand why she is not asking for any blood test. I didn't say anything to her thinking she might not like a patient questioning her. What to do?

In case you are breast feeding your child, you cannot have combined oral contraceptives. You could go in for iucds (copper t or multiload or lng ius) which last for 5 years, or injectons or implants for long term contrception.

Do husband's semen test and wife's hsg test. They are not costly. If they are normal, try for natural pregnancy between 10th to 20th day for next 6 months.

You are suffering from 2 problems related to your body. 1) not getting periods 2) vaginal infection which needs examination and treatment. I can suggest only 1st problem here, get ultrasound done to make sure that infection in not inside the uterus and other areas, get a blood test for routine infections & blood sugar + thyroid profile test. Are you married or in a relationship? some girls do pick up infections through their partners. You are overweight, another reason for delayed cycle. Do not take hormones till you get basic reports as heavy hormones will make the problem worse, they may start the period through some drops only & get tested for tb also. Give us reports here for evaluation, so that any one of us can help you for both of the above problems. Use a local cream of clotrimazole to reduce itching but make sure that the cream does not have steroids, which will make fungal infections worse.

Lybrate-user, many a times, periods delay is due to hormonal dis balance, if pregnancy test is negative. Best pregnancy test results are shown after 4/6 weeks only. Result also depends - how you do test? go to local medical shop, buy" prega" preg color test" use first urine of morning time" and check color change. Result can confirm your pregnancy. Primarily looks like you are not pregnant. Regards,

Lybrate-user, the period of 1 week before and 1 week after menstrual period is termed as safe period and hence helps prevent pregnancy even on having sex. Use of unwanted 72 can be used safely. Given within 72 hours after unprotected sex.

Breasts are usually soft, what's the problem, do you mean size or loose. She can Take diet containing fats and soya products. Massage breast from below upwards and from side inwards using some coconut oil. Change posture by standing straight and pushing chest forward will make breasts look bigger. Exercising the muscles beneath breasts will make them appear more rounded, it can be done by push-ups done daily for few times increasing gradually.
