Know Everything About Pap Smear Test!

Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Know Everything About Pap Smear Test!

A Pap Smear is a screening test done to to test for occurrence of uterine cancer. Carried out in a quick and simple way to extract a sample, the sample is collected from the cervix area of a woman during a pelvic exam. The examination of the sample takes place under a microscope thereafter to find abnormalities that can point towards cancer and pre cancer changes.

There are many reasons why women should get a pap smear screening done:

  1. Women who are HIV positive should get this test done regularly so as to detect any anomalies in the cervix. This condition usually comes with higher risk of infections and cancer, which is why regular screening is required.
  2. Age is also another factor and women over the age of 30 should go through an annual screening on a compulsory basis. This is also true for women who have been through pregnancy and childbirth.

Preparing for a pap smear: To prepare for a pap smear test, you need to ensure that you are not menstruating at the time. Also, you may want to avoid sexual activity just before the test so as to get the most accurate readings. During the process, remember to stay calm and relax your body physically.

Procedure: The pap smear procedure is a quick one that might be only slightly uncomfortable. This test is usually carried out on the examination table at the gynecologist's clinic. The legs will need to be spread and placed in stirrups. The doctor will insert a speculum to hold open the vaginal opening so that the spatula can be inserted easily to take a sample from the area. This sample of the cells will be tested in a lab after due preservation.

Test Results: The test results can either be normal or abnormal. An abnormal result does not point at the presence of cancer. Rather it can simply mean that abnormal cells exist in the cervix. The doctor may ask you to go through these tests and screening more frequently so as to study the anomalies in a more detailed manner. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Infertility in Women - Know The Top 3 Reasons Behind It!

Infertility in Women - Know The Top 3 Reasons Behind It!

The inability to conceive after indulging in unprotected sex is known as infertility. It can also be referred to the biological incapability of a male to cause the conception or a woman being unable to carry the pregnancy for full-term. Research has shown that female problems contribute to over half of all the infertility cases while a majority of the other causes include sperm disorders.

Treatment of infertility depends on:

  1. Cause of Infertility
  2. Duration of Infertility
  3. Age of both partners
  4. Personal preferences

Causes:
Causes of infertility in women include:
1. Ovulation disorders: This is regarded as the most common cause of infertility in women. The disorders can be caused due to the following

  • Premature ovarian failure
  • PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
  • Poor egg quality
  • Hyperprolactinemia
  • Overactive or Underactive thyroid gland
  • Chronic conditions like cancer or AIDS.

2. Problems in fallopian tubes or uterus: Abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes render the woman incapable of conceiving naturally. This might be due to:

  • Submucosal fibroids
  • Surgery
  • Endometriosis
  • Previous sterilization treatment

3. Medications: There is a possibility that treatment will cure infertility. Examples include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. Treatment of infertility might involve a significant amount of psychological, physical, temporal and financial commitments. In men, treatment is done to treat lack of healthy sperm or general sexual problems. The treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Surgery
  3. Change in lifestyle
  4. Sperm retrieval

Even though it is possible to restore fertility in women using only one or two therapies, a number of treatments might be required before conception is possible. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  2. Stimulation of ovulation with fertility drugs
  3. Surgery to restore fertility

In situations where pregnancy does not happen spontaneously, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) can be used by couples to achieve pregnancy. It is a form of fertility treatment which involves the handling of sperm and egg. The entire ART team consists of psychologists, physicians, embryologists, nurses and lab technicians.

One common ART technique is In vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a process where an egg and sperms are manually combined in a laboratory dish, followed by transfer of embryo to the uterus. Some aspects involved in an IVF cycle are:

  1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  2. Assisted hatching
  3. Donor eggs or sperm
  4. Gestational carrier

Some complications that may occur during the treatment of infertility are:

  1. Multiple pregnancy
  2. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)

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

3 factors are important are important to reduce your belly fat post delivery. 1. Diet. Ensure that you don't consume more than 2000 calories in a day. 2. Belt. You can start using an abdominal belt as a support increase the tone of the muscle. 3. Exercise. Abdominal and exercises will burn the fat.

Check her TSH also. Based on T3 T4 and TSH, your doctor will prescribe on the necessary thyroid medications. After the delivery you can reassess her thyroid levels and accordingly you can stop the medications.

Cancer is not a contagious disease. So you can have sex without being worried. However if she is having cancer of uterus, cervix or mouth, she may experience some symptoms like pain or minimal bleeding.

Actually I am boy! And I have girlfriend I put my finger into her vagina on 6th january night at around 11: 00 pm She suddenly got pain and I stopped! on 7th january morning her vagina was bleeding! I am worried! Will she get pregnant? I not touched my soft part of the penis before putting my finger into her vagina! Why she was bleeding? Was that due to my nails which was slightly longer? Please help me out of the situation! is there any chances of pregnancy? How to stop this?

There is no possibility of pregnancy in the current scenario. The bleeding must be because of either rupture of hymen or minimal injury during fingering. If the bleeding doesn't settle in one day do consult a doctor. Ensure this is not just her menstrual bleeding.

If you don't get periods beyond 6 months after delivery, it's best to consult a doctor and take medications to ensure there is no pregnancy and start using regular contraception. There is always a possibility of pregnancy even if you don't get period. If there is no pregnancy you can use a Copper T to prevent pregnancy.

Is it normal to have 16*13 mm follicle on day 11 and if ovulation occur on this size is there a chance to get pregnant?
It's normal to have a follicle of this size on Day 11. However the size has to be around 20mm for the follicle to be mature and result in ovulation. The chances of pregnancy are low if ovulation occurs at 16*13mm size.

My age is 19. I had lost my virgin in my age of 16. Which ointment I used to regain or tighten my vagina? please help me.

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Dear Rupa. Unfortunately there are no 100% effective tablets or ointments to tighten the vagina. Only surgical reconstruction of the hymen is effective. Don't use the over the counter products that claim to tighten the vagina as they are not approved medications and can have long term side effects.

Hi lybrate-user. PCOS is a very common hormonal problem. Lot of women with PCOS can easily get pregnant with some assistance. The main problem with PCOS is that you don't ovulate every month. So taking medicines for egg development at the beginning of each cycle will help you get pregnant. Consult your Gynec regarding what medications will suit you best.

Hi lybrate-user. The heart rate is usually slightly higher in pregnancy. However Your heart rate is much higher than the normal limits. Suggest to get an ECG or ECHO done to see if your heart is tolerating the pregnancy changes well. If this is associated with swelling of feet as well then do check with your Gynec about this.

Only 6 months of exclusive breast feeding is advised. Beyond that it's not mandatory. As it's already been 18 months you may stop feeding the baby gradually.

Hi lybrate-user. The amount of pain you experience after a laparoscopy is very mild. It's similar to the amount of pain you have after a small cut on your finger. You will be anesthetized during the procedure and it might last about 30-60 min. You resume all your activities the very next day of procedure. Good luck with your procedure.

Hemorrhagic cyst is a simple fluid filled bag in your ovary. It is the remains of the follicle from which you have ovulated the previous month. It is usually harmless and resolves spontaneously within a couple of months.
