You are using pills on your own without consulting a doctor which is dangerous. There was no need for giving unwanted 72. You have disturbed the fine hormonal balance in the body. Please consult a good gynecologist to set right things.

Gynaecologist,
Dear Sir,
My wife is feeling breast pain. So what I should do?
Please suggest me something.
Breast pain is due to many reasons. It could be due to small tumors in breast hormonal changes which cause breasts to be tender, in pre menses period some non healing of breast trauma caused in sex etc so only a thorough evaluation and examination by a gynecologist or surgeon will help you. Take her to a doctor and get examined. Mostly it would be due to hormones imbalance and for these simple medicines can help with pain relief. But if there are tumors in breast, they will need to be evaluated and removed.

Hello, If you weren't sexually involved last month then the delay is likely to be stress induced. You may wait for 2 weeks post missed periods and if menses don't resume then you may opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
If the both tubes are blocked then best treatment is test tube baby. However it costly and success rate is 30-35%. Also sometimes tubes can be opened by a small procedure called- hydrotubation.

Treatment of irregular periods depends on the cause and your desire to have children in the future. Irregular periods can be caused by many different things. Changes in your body's level of the hormones estrogen and progesterone can disrupt the normal pattern of your period. That's why young girls going through puberty and women approaching menopause commonly have irregular periods. Other common causes of irregular periods include: ? Having an intrauterine device (IUD) ? Changing birth control pills or using certain medications ? Excessive exercise ? Polycystic ovary disease (PCOS) ? Pregnancy or breastfeeding ? Severe scarring (adhesions) of the lining of the uterus, a condition known as Asherman syndrome ? Stress ? Overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism ? Thickening of or polyps on the uterine lining ? Uterine fibroids Turmeric Being a warming herb, turmeric is also considered helpful in regulating menstruation and balancing hormones. Its emmenagogue properties help stimulate menstrual flow. Moreover, its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties relieve menstrual pain. ? Consume one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric with milk, honey or jaggery. Take it daily for several weeks or until you see improvement. ? You can also take turmeric in supplement form; consult your doctor for proper dosage.

Talking About Infertility

Brief description on infertility and its treatment

I am Dr. Radhika gynecologist and infertility specialist from Institute of Women's Health and Fertility. Infertility almost in about 10-15% of couples trying for pregnancy are facing problem with conception. This is almost a rising trend that nowadays almost 1 in 6-7 couples have problem in conception.

When we call it infertility? Infertility is nothing but when a couple is trying to conceive without any protection or without any means of protection for almost 1 year of unprotected intercourse we call it infertility. Let me just explain how an infertile couple is taken through an infertile clinic? During the first visit the couple is analysed and they are taken in detail history as what is the cause to infertility? What is the duration of infertility? What is the duration of married life? What is the age of the couple that is the age of the female partner and the male partner? Had there been any pregnancy in the past? Is there any miscarriage in the past? Once the examination and history is taken we go for work up of the patient. That is we see for the ovarian function to ensure that ovary is functioning well that is to ensure that ovulation is going fine. We also look for the tubal factors. Tubal factor analysis is done by a test called salpingogram or hysterosalpingogram. If there is a problem in hysterosalpingogram that is tubes are looking blocked then we analyze with the further test called further the surgical assessment; like laparoscopy.

Once the tubes are cleared we also analyze how the uterus is with the hysterosalpingogram? As I already told you male factor is analysed by Semen analysis after an abstinence of 2 to 5 days. Once all these are ruled out we get to analyze or we get to reach to a conclusion as what may be the probable cause of these infertile couple? There may be few factors like peritoneal factors like an endometriosis. We have the endometrium of the inner layer of the uterus growing elsewhere outside the uterus. That is the inner layer of the uterus or endometrium grow in the ovaries or may grow in the pouch of Douglas. That is behind the uterus or may grow near the tubes. These all cause an addition or attachment of the uterus to the tubes. And they impair the easy pick up of the ovum or the egg from the end of the tube to the ovum end that is the inner end of the tube. When there is no egg pick up there is no pregnancy. Some most of the time in which simple infertility treatments and simple infertility counselling how they have to go about natural conception and when they have to try when the egg is being released? With all these thing itself 70% of the couples would conceive. And only in about 10 to 15% will go to the next step like IUI or further steps like test tube baby procedures. IUI is intrauterine insemination where sperm sample is collected in the laboratory. It is washed off the impurities and the good motile sperms are injected into the uterus through a thin canella or a catheter. This sperms have to travel a very short distance from the uterine cavity into the tube when egg is already picked up and stay. So this distance to be travelled is very short thereby increasing the chance of pregnancy. IUI is of major benefit in minimal or mild male factor infertility.

Once we have seen the other factors are also ruled out and ensure that everything is fine then we counsel the couple for IVF or test tube baby procedure. IVF is in vitro fertilization. What we do in this one is give injections or give continuous injections to the lady which will cause superovulation. Once the eggs attain a mature size we collect all of them through a thin needle into the test tube washed off the impurities and then incubated. The same time the sperm is collected in the laboratory. The egg under sperm is inseminated together and embryos are grown in the laboratory. Once these embryos are grown they are pushed back or transferred back to the womb using a thin capita that is the embryo transfer catheter. After 48 to 72 hours usually or even after 5 days sometimes.

But, in few men or in few couples the problem is the severe male factor infertility. That is we find only few sperms or in the ejaculate we find only few sperms or sometimes not even a few sperms in the ejaculate. In that condition we can surgically aspirate the sperm from the testicular tissue and see if it is already there. Once we get a good sperm from the testicular tissue we inject that good sperm tissue in the cytoplasm of the egg so that we have maximum chance of fertilization. This particular process is called ICSI or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. So this increases the chance of fertilization and this further increases the chances of pregnancy also. That's it about infertility over you.

Thank you And if you have any issues regarding infertility or regarding counselling about how conception occurs are how to go about trial for pregnancy you can visit us.
