Symbicort is safe but the dose you are using is very less. It is hypoxia which can cause more harm to foetus then asthma drugs.

Yes you can take, only that it is of less use in late age and more advantageous to young even before they become sexually active. If you are taking vaccination then plan next pregnancy after you finish second dose.

Tips to Have a Normal Delivery

Tips to Have a Normal Delivery

Giving birth to a child is the most profound form of joy felt by a woman. After getting pregnant, one should discuss with her gynecologist what form of surgery they should go in for. Women have been delivering babies by normal childbirth without any complications since the old times. However, complications might arise if you don't take proper care of your body before the date of delivery. You should be careful and alert at all times so that there are no detrimental effects to you and your child.

Certain tips and guidelines should be followed so that you and your child are safe and secure during a normal delivery:

  1. Diet: As soon as you know you are pregnant, you should take care of your diet. Avoid junk food and street food. Stick to a nutritious diet, which contains vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Iron and calcium rich food items should also be consumed for the healthy development of your fetus.
  2. Active lifestyle: Try to exercise daily. Include light permissible yoga and also light walks during your pregnancy. You can also join a yoga fitness class for expecting mothers. This can make your body flexible and ready for a normal delivery.
  3. Water: Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day to keep yourself hydrated during your pregnancy.
  4. Stress: Pregnancy can be extremely stressful. This can take a toll on your body and also on your unborn child's health. Also too much stress can make labor a difficult experience, as the pelvic muscles might not expand for the baby to pass through.
  5. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption: Tobacco is very harmful and might lead to birth defects in your child. Alcohol also acts as a poison. Intake of these substances should be avoided completely.
  6. Prenatal class: Joining a prenatal class can be very helpful because you get to learn about giving birth and the things, which your body will be required to do during labor. This can come handy during the delivery.
  7. Breathing exercise: During labor it is possible that you can experience shortness of breath. Practicing breathing exercises will help you prepare for a normal delivery.

These tips should be known by every expectant mother so that the strenuous process of a normal delivery is eased out.

Tubal Scarring and Infertility

Tubal Scarring and Infertility

The fallopian tubes are not mere passages for the egg to travel from the ovaries to the uterus. It is here that conception occurs and hence healthy fallopian tubes are essential for the fertilization of an egg. 

Damaged fallopian tubes are the most common cause of infertility. This damage can fall under three categories. 

  1. Blocked fallopian tubes
  2. One blocked and one open fallopian tube
  3. Tubal scarring

The third is usually an effect of pelvic infections or natural healing after a pelvic surgery. Sadly, in most cases, this condition is discovered only after infertility has been diagnosed. Other causes of fallopian tubal scarring include:

  1. STDs such as chlamydia trachomatis and neisseria gonorrhea
  2. Adhesions caused by ruptured ovarian cysts
  3. Appendicitis
  4. Peritonitis
  5. A history of ectopic pregnancies

Fallopian tubal scarring has no recognizable symptoms. Chronic pelvic pain is the only known symptom of this damage and that too can be seen only in severe cases of tubal scarring. On diagnosing infertility, your doctor will perform one of these tests to determine the condition of your fallopian tubes.

  1. Hysterosalpingogram: This is a type of X-ray. Your doctor will open the vagina with a speculum and inject a liquid into the uterus with the help of a catheter. If the liquid does not pass through the fallopian tubes, it is said to be blocked. This however, does not say much about tubal scarring.
  2. Laparoscopy: A small incision is made below the belly button and a slim, flexible tube with a camera is passed through the incision. This gives your doctor a clear view of the condition of your fallopian tubes. A laparoscopy can also be used to rule out other causes of infertility such as endometriosis or blocked fallopian tubes. 

Treatment for infertility caused by tubal scarring is of two types:

  1. Surgery: This is suggested in cases where tubal scarring is minimal. Depending on the intensity and placement of scar tissue, your doctor may decide to perform one of many types of surgeries. He may choose to remove the scarred section of the fallopian tube, create a new opening (in case of blockages) or rebuild the damaged edges of the fallopian tubes.
  2. In Vitro Fertilization(IVF): Women with badly scarred fallopian tubes usually have poor chances of conceiving naturally. Hence, IVF is the preferred treatment route. However, your doctor may still advise you to undergo surgery and remove the damaged tubes prior to IVF to prevent the tubes from filling with fluid.

Folic acid does not help in conception but helps to prevent abnormalities of the baby. Both of you should consult doctor as there may be some problems inside you or your husband. We need to diagnose the exact cause and treat that cause to give you pregnancy.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain treatment NYCThere are many different causes of lower back pain. Pain in the lower back can be due to repetitive stress on back muscles and joints from poor posture or certain activities, or as the result of more chronic conditions such as arthritis. Back pain can affect children, adults, and seniors.

The various musculoskeletal conditions associated with low back pain are:

Arthritis
Spondylolisthesis
Subluxation
Sciatica
Scoliosis
Stenosis
Sacroiliac pain
Muscle spasm
Disc herniation
Muscle imbalances



Our Approach

Diagnosing the exact cause of low back pain requires careful attention to the soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back, as well as the quality of the movement of the lower and upper extremities.

We will carefully assess your condition by performing a variety of orthopedic tests, functional evaluations, postural assessments, ergonomic evaluations, and thorough soft tissue explorations to determine the exact source of your pain. As needed, diagnostic imaging will also be used.


After we address your initial lower back inflammation, we will restore normal musculoskeletal function through spinal manipulation and a variety of soft tissue technique such as Active Release Technique®, Graston Technique®, Fascial Manipulation, Trigger Point Therapy, and Transverse Friction Massage. Rehabilitative and strengthening exercises will be integrated, as well.

Had a miscarriage in december. Hubby is using steroids now. What can we use to fall pregnant faster.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills.

Initially it feels like flutter but as d baby grow movements r more distinct and can b felt by hands also. No of movements vary time to time as baby also sleep. You should count movement after having meals in relaxed position. Lying down in lateral position is d best. If there r 10 movements in two hrs it's adequate. If not check again after few hrs. If again its less than 10 in 2 hr after having meals in relaxed position visit your gynaecologist.

PCOS IS NOT A DISEASE BUT A CHANGE HAPPEND BECAUSE OF DERANGED LIFESTYLE AND STRESS. YOU ARE NOT OVULATING HENCE YOU ARE NOT GETTING YOUR PERIODS. THERE IS NO POINT TAKING KRIMSON 35 OR ANY OTHER TREATMENT CURRENTLY AS YOU ARE UNMARRIED. THE REAL TREATMETN NECESSARY WOULD AFTER MARRIAGE WHEN YOU WOULD NEED TO OVULATE FOR CHILD BEARING. EVEN IF YOU TAKE TREATMENT NOW PERIODS WOULD COME REGULAR TILL YOU ARE ON DRUGS AND ONCE YOU WOULD STOP THE DRUGS THEN PERIODS WOULD RETURN TO THE EARLIER MANNER

We are thinking to go for ivf . heard some myths that baby should b abnormal, premature deliveries, more chances of twins, slow growth of baby in uterus etc. Please guide us properly.

Baby abnormality is a myth. The rest of the problems you have mentioned are due to twin pregnancy. But in current IVF, we usually try to plan for singletone pregnancy if mother's age <35 years. Indeed IVF pregnancies are high risk. But can you tell me when we go outside- there is risk of accident- then should we stop going outside only because of fear of accident?

AMH blood levels are thought to reflect the size of the remaining egg supply, number of eggs cannot be increased or decreased. In such cases IVF has to be done, Gynecologist can explain you better. If you have oligospermia then you also may need medication, consult a sexologist.
